  • The twists and turns of living in one place for a very long time make for interesting searches and research.

    Daughter Sherry is making photo journals for my granddaughters — we all should do this — and therefore, I needed to dig through those proverbial boxes of very old photographs. What a fun time that always is!
    So many of the family photos were taken by our busy mothers. They decided to record some event for history, thankfully, and the sometimes poorly lit, posed picture records so much more than they probably realized at the time.

    The appeal of quick breads isn’t merely the ease. Though you have to love any baked good that is no more complicated than mixing a bunch of things together, then baking.

    But it also is the adaptability and flexibility of these recipes that have earned them such a coveted place in the home kitchen. They can be flavored with nearly any combination of ingredients, from sweet all the way to savory and spicy.
