About Jim

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

Monday Morning


Autumn is for baking which helps make the house smell good since all of the windows are usually closed up.  Momma always said “We’re not paying to heat the outside!” which was her gentle way of saying to closet the damn doors and windows.

A redheaded Georgia Peach challenges me to bake an Applesauce cake which left me scratching my head since I don’t remember Momma or Grandma ever baking one of these.  I seem to recall some of the older neighbor ladies who grew on the farm would make them for a church social or for an afternoon tea but I don’t remember ever eating one.

So, I did a little research, found a recipe, got all of the ingredients and gave it a go today.  It looks right, it smells right and the spatula tasted pretty good after I scraped all of it into a baking dish.  We’ll see how it turns out but the house now smells of baking apples, cinnamon and cloves.
