Holiday Shopping and Good Food

WUF is me...
I caught Mommie lying on her back on the couch, 
I propped my nose on her leg to ensure 
she didn't have any hidden snacks...
All was clear, 
SOMEBODY has to get some work done...
So, it is ME, Again, 
stopping to Save the Day for the 
Folkart and Primitives Team and More!!

Has shared a recipe with us.
It looks Yummy! 

Teddie’s Apple Cake serves 8

Butter for greasing pan 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting pan

1 ½ cups vegetable oil
 2 cups sugar

3 eggs 
1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon 
1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla 
3 cups peeled, cored, and thickly sliced tart apples
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 9-inch tube pan. Beat the oil and sugar together in a mixer (fitted with a paddle attachment) while assembling the remaining ingredients. After about 5 minutes, add the eggs and beat until the mixture is creamy. Sift together 3 cups of flour, the salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Stir into the batter. Add the vanilla, apples, walnuts and raisins and stir until combined. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan before lifting out. Serve at room temperature with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.

 has shared one of his favorite fall treats.

I love this Acorn Squash: 1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Generously butter a rimmed baking sheet.

2.Halve squash crosswise. Scoop out seeds; discard. Slice a small piece off bottom of each squash half just enough to level.

3.Set squash halves, scooped sides down, on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

I laughed and said this is exactly what the recipes look like that I have from my Mother.  They have been well used and love.  It brought the biggest smile to my heart!
