Rhubarb Almond Cake

This Rhubarb Almond Cake is the latest collaboration between me and my rapidly producing rhubarb patch. It’s that time of year when I can hardly keep up with all the delicious spring stalks growing in my yard. I’m not complaining one bit though, because rhubarb reminds me of home, and generations of bakers in my family who used their homegrown rhubarb in the most delicious desserts that take me back to my childhood. Many of those family recipes are still […]

Old Fashioned Rhubarb Custard Pie

It’s rhubarb season in Iowa and rhubarb pie is one of my most favorite ways to use our homegrown stalks. My mom’s amazing rhubarb pie recipe is still my very favorite, but I was inspired by a rhubarb custard pie that a sweet co-worker of my husband’s gifted us from a little Amish bakery near her farm. It was so delicious that I decided to try and recreate the recipe myself, and ended up with this tart and creamy Old […]

Life Lately Baking with Evie If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen the fun I had baking a Rhubarb Pie with my favorite baby this week! We used an old family recipe that my mom always made because it was my dad’s favorite pie. My mom has written on the top of the recipe card that the recipe was passed down from HER grandmother. It wasn’t until after Evelynn and I had finished the pie that […]

The Best Posts of 2021

It was fun to go back and look through my analytics recently, to see what the best posts of 2021 turned out to be. Last year, 2020 was a pivotal year for my blog, because so much stay-home-time led to more time for baking, cooking, projects, and crafts, which led to more content for the blog. But this year was the year that I really saw this little hobby start to turn into an actual business. I signed on with […]

Sundays on Silverado #51

Welcome to Sundays on Silverado #51! Life Lately It’s HOT The weather this week has been a hot, humid mess. We love being outside as much as possible, but during the middle part of the day, it’s just been terrible. It’s nice to drink coffee outside in the morning, since we typically get up early, and usually, if we have a late dinner, we can eat outside. But the middle part of the day? No way. More Pickles! I made […]

Life Lately “School’s out for summer…” 🎶 Am I the only one who hears a little Alice Cooper in my head every year when school lets out? I’m tellin’ ya, this summer vacation is much needed, and we ushered it in well. The hubs had a few days off too, so we spent them doing all the things we love to do. We slept in (7am is “sleeping in” when you’re old btw), we drank leisurely coffee in the morning […]
