For many, hard boiling an egg seems simple, but many people have asked about a method with good results. While there are many techniques, this is the way I hard boil eggs. The eggs cook completely, the yolks are fluffy and bright yellow, and the eggs peel easily.
Taking a little help from a box of cake mix, this double chocolate Bundt cake features bits of candied orange peel. Easy to prepare – and you can omit the orange peel or substitute with dried fruit, nuts, coconut, etc. This cake feeds a large group and has always been a crowd pleaser. Top with a dusting of powdered sugar or an easy glaze. You will also get a video tour of the vintage Hamilton Beach Model G mixer used to prepare the cake!

This is a super-easy pie to put together and a great option when you don’t have any fresh fruit to use for a filling. It delivers a nice, oatmeal flavor. The pie isn’t too sweet, so it pairs well with fresh whipped cream or ice cream, and only requires a handful of ingredients.
This is a great combination of flavors…tart rhubarb and sweet pineapple. They go well together and if you have a lot of rhubarb left in the freezer from the early summer harvest this is a good way to use it! A fairly simple pie to make and unusual enough to be an interesting offering for your guests. Great on its own or with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Here is a simple two-loaf recipe for a good tasting whole wheat bread. It includes a little molasses, which deepens the flavor. This bread is great on sandwiches and is excellent toasted. While the recipe isn’t complicated, the process takes about 3 hours from start to finish as the dough needs to rise twice.
