Pool Heat Pumps
Posted on 05.31.12 by itscrazydelicious @

My parents always had a pool when I was growing up and then they got rid of it because it takes a lot to keep up with. But for all those years we had hoped that they would have gotten those pool heat pumps because that water was so cold! There was one year we went in the pool and we had a sign we held up with the date and the temperature of the water…it was so cold. And then it would be really hot for a week or two and the water would be then awesome but one cold rain and it was freezing again!

Honey Cake
Posted on 05.31.12 by itscrazydelicious @

Here is a great new recipe called Honey Cake. I just love honey so I thought that it would be so delicious. I have not had the time to make it yet but it looks so incredibly good. I got this Swedish 17th century recipe from a site called Pirate Recipes. So if you need other pirate like recipes then you have to check out this site because they have a lot of them for your. Arrrrrr……

1 1/2 dl of honey

4 eggs

1 dl of sugar

2 spoons (or more) of ginger

1 spoon of jamaica pepper

4 dl of wheat flour

Grease a tin about 1½ litres in size. Warm up the honey so that you can stirr it easily with a spoon. Whip up the eggs til they´re white, mix them with honey and spices. Finally stirr in flour and pour it all into the tin. Bake in oven for about 30 – 40 minutes in 175ºC. Take it out, leave it for a day and serve with butter.

Pumpkin Bread
Posted on 11.21.08 by itscrazydelicious @

I do not know about you but I just love pumpkin bread. And this time of year is the best time to make it and enjoy it. And you can have it with a nice cup of hot pumpkin coffee too! I do not like stuffed pumpkin though… the pumpkin flavor but not the actual pumpkin. And pumpkin bread is by far my favorite pumpkin product. Here is a great recipe I found for pumpkin bread from Simply Recipes at…
1 1/2 cups (210g) flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup (200 g) sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (1/4 L) pumpkin purée*
1/2 cup (1 dL) olive oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup (1 dL) chopped walnuts

* To make pumpkin purée, cut a pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and stringy stuff, lie face down on a foil or Silpat lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F until soft, about 45 min to an hour. Cool, scoop out the flesh. Freeze whatever you don’t use for future use. Or, if you are working with pumpkin pieces, roast or boil them until tender, then remove and discard the skin.

1 Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Sift together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda.

2 Mix the pumpkin, oil, eggs, 1/4 cup of water, and spices together, then combine with the dry ingredients, but do not mix too thoroughly. Stir in the nuts.

3 Pour into a well-buttered 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Bake 50-60 minutes until a thin skewer poked in the very center of the loaf comes out clean. Turn out of the pan and let cool on a rack.

Makes one loaf. Can easily double the recipe.

Coffee Date Bread
Posted on 11.21.08 by itscrazydelicious @

Here is a great recipe that I found and have tried…last week actually. My husband just loved it – and I loved it too and I do not normally like coffee cake. I got this recipe from All Recipes which is a great site where you can get many great recipes. It is an easy recipe too…great for the holidays. I will be making this for my holiday get togethers. Hopefully it will be liked by all!
1 cup chopped pitted dates
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup strong brewed coffee
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8×4 inch loaf pan, and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
Place the dates in a small bowl, and sprinkle the baking soda over. Heat coffee to boiling, and pour over the dates and soda. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, sugar and egg until well blended. Stir in vanilla. Blend in the flour and salt, then fold in the pecans and date mixture. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top of the loaf springs back when lightly touched. Let stand for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Peel off paper, and allow to cool on a wire rack.

This is from

    What to Eat When You’re Expecting

and is fabulous. Sometimes I add walnuts and other times I leave them out also.
It takes around 1 hour to make

3 very ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 cups puree)
1/2 cup apple juice, frozen concentrate
2 tablespoons apple juice, frozen concentrate
1tablespoon orange juice, frozen concentrate
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup wheat germ
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup raisins or chopped dates
1/2 cup walnuts — coarsely chopped
2 egg whites
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Process the bananas, juice concentrates, oil, and lemon juice in a blender until smooth. Combine the flour, wheat germ, cinnamon, and baking powder in a mixer bowl.

Then stir the banana mixture into the dry ingredients to make a thick batter; then stir in the raisins and walnuts.

Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold into the batter.

Spoon the batter into 18 muffin cups coated with vegetable cooking spray. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the tins immediately.

Irish Soda Bread
Posted on 03.08.08 by itscrazydelicious @

Personally, I just love to make breads and this is one of my favorites. My absolute favorite bread for the past few months has been Beer Bread but this is a close second and it is the time of the year to make this bread. This would be the perfect thing to bring to that Irish St. Pattie’s day party!! Here is the best recipe that I have found and used. I got it at BusyCooks.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hours, 10 minutes
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
3 cups raisins
1 Tbsp. caraway seeds
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-1/4 cups buttermilk
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9″ round cake pan with solid shortening and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour (reserving 1 tablespoon), sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, raisins and caraway seeds. In a small bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk and sour cream and beat until smooth. Stir the liquid mixture into flour mixture just until flour is moistened. Knead dough in bowl about 10 to 12 times. The dough will be sticky.

Place the dough in the prepared pan and pat down. Cut a 4×3/4″ deep slash in the top of the bread and dust with reserved flour. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 65 to 75 minutes; remove from pan and place on wire rack to cool.

Beer Bread
Posted on 11.16.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I am just so excited – I just got my beer bread mix in and you can use it with any carbinated drink – I may try it with root beer because I think the kids would like it better. I got the mix this time but here is the recipe. I got this recipe from Farmgirl Fare – excellent recipe!!!

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder (make sure it’s fresh!)

2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried)
1 cup finely grated sharp cheddar cheese
12 ounces beer

Optional glaze: 1 egg & 2 teaspoons water, beaten

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, dill, and cheddar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan (I love my Chicago Metallic Commercial Loaf Pans–they’re great for yeast breads, too), brush with egg glaze if desired, and bake until golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Bread For Gifts
Posted on 11.13.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I love to give food as gifts to certain people that I know will appreciate it. I just went to a bread party where you can buy different kinds of bread and there is one bread that I have made htat is delicious called Beer bread. But when you make food and breads for people you do not want to give them your good pans. So here is a great trick. Keep your old shoe boxes and line it with wax paper. It fits perfectly. This is great for those home made cookies also!

Columbus Day Italian Sweet Loaf
Posted on 10.05.07 by itscrazydelicious @

So I was looking online to find something for the upcoming holiday on Monday….that being Columbus Day and low and behold I did find a recipe for an Italian Sweet Loaf which just sound so good. Actually anything with the word sweet in it just is very appealing to my taste buds 🙂 I got this recipe from AsTray and I can not wait to try it this Saturday!!!

2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup melted butter
2 whole eggs plus
3 egg yolks
1 tsp salt
4-1/2 cups unbleached white flour
1 egg yolk combined with:
2 tsp flour
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp water

Dissolve the yeast and brown sugar in warm water in a large mixing bowl. Set aside for about 10 minutes or until the yeast has become foamy. Stir in the butter, eggs, additional yolks and salt. Blend well.

Add the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead with additional four for about 5 minutes or until the dough is elastic and not sticky. Divided the dough in half. Flatten and shape each half into a round loaf. Place on a greased baking sheet, cover loosely with aluminum
foil, and let rise in a warm, draft free place until the loaves are doubled in bulk, about 1-2 hours. Brush the egg mixture on the top of the loaves and slash twice with a sharp knife. Sprinkle with additional sugar and bake in a preheated 325F oven for 35-40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before slicing.
