Homemade Orecchiette (Hats) Recipe

Wednesday, September 13, 2017
I had to ask myself this morning why did I wait so long to finally make this homemade pasta.

I have fabulous memories of these hats and they came out just the way I remembered them from a child and what a difference they are homemade from scratch.

Much easier to make these than I expected.

I have no idea what took me so long to try making them!

Orecchiette (pronounced [orek╦łkjette]; singular orecchietta; from Italian orecchia, meaning 'ear', and -etta, meaning 'small') are a pasta that is popular in Southern Italy.

these are a hat shaped pasta with sauce on top called Orecchiette pasta and made from scratch


Marble Pound Cake

Thursday, September 7, 2017
Swirly marble pound cake is the best of both worlds for this cake because there are two flavors in one bite!

The pan I used is also called a swirly pan and it sure looks pretty when baked but I have always been a bundt pan lover.

Any bundt pan makes baking this cake or any cake so easy.

This is a classic pound cake and the buttery tender slice is perfect just the way it is with coffee, tea, or a cold glass of milk.

Not to mention it's so pretty dressed up with sliced fresh fruits with cream or dusted with powdered sugar.

If you love vintage style cakes, don't forget to try our Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake or Hot Milk Cake, two blue ribbon winners!

Either way, this simple cake is great anytime and especially to serve to friends and family at dinner get-togethers.
