May Menu - Menu Plan Monday


Happy Wednesday Friends! Today I have my May Menu Plan for you. I meant to post this earlier, but I had several things going on and forgot (sorry).

In Texas the weather warms up pretty quickly, so taking advantage of cooking outside is always a plus. Any recipe noted with {New} are recipes I plan to make and will post in the near future.

My Texas Table Newsletter - Easter Dinner Favorites


Happy Friday friends!!!  

I hope you had a great week? The weather here in North Texas has been a bit crazy, but that's usually how spring is in Texas. Between all the rain, wind and up and down temps we did finally have time to get our backyard cleaned up from old man winter. We also had a chance to get a start on our large raised bed vegetable garden and planted all of our seeds and plants. Our potatoes, onions, peppers and tomato plants went in a couple weeks ago, but it was finally time to to get all of our seeds in the ground. The beginning of gardening season is always so exciting. 

Spring has finally sprung my friends and Easter is in just 2 short days!!!  💮 🐰  If you're looking for a few recipes for Easter dinner you've come to the right place. Today's newsletter is filled with some of my favorite holiday recipes, perfect for your Easter get together!  All of the recipes listed below are recipes that I have made countless times at holidays, family get-together's, and potlucks and everyone always raves about them. I hope you love these recipes just as much as we do.

Old Fashioned Prune (Plum) Cake with Caramel Frosting

An old fashioned spice cake made with dried prunes (plums), spices and topped with a homemade caramel frosting. 
Happy Sunday friends, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Vintage and old fashioned cakes have always been a favorite of mine. Old fashioned desserts and cakes remind me of simpler times, grandma's kitchen and all my favorite desserts I enjoyed as a child. 

I've shared several old fashioned cakes over the years and a few of my favorites are this Applesauce Cake, Oatmeal Cake with Broiled Coconut Icing, Mom's Fresh Apple Cake, Hummingbird Cake, 7 Up Pound Cake,  Vanilla Pound Cake and this vintage Jell-O Ice Box Cake

Recently I made this Old Fashioned Prune Cake that I found in an old church cookbook. I've only tasted a prune cake one time in my life, but I remember how tasty it was. I know what you're thinking prunes in a cake! I thought the same thing, but think of a prune cake more along the lines of an old fashioned spice cake speckled with dried plums.

How to make a Simple Beginners Crochet Baby Blanket

❤ How to make a Simple Beginners Crochet Baby Blanket

Hi Friends! I recently tried my hand at crocheting my first baby blanket. Just before Christmas my first grand child was born and I'm over the moon in love with her. I thought it was only fitting to make her a soft baby blanket with my favorite blanket yarn. When it comes to crocheting, I always try to keep it simple. Mainly because I'm pretty much still a beginner myself. I've crocheted in the past, but mostly just simple projects like wash cloths. I never go crazy with too many colors and I always choose a simple stitch and pattern.
