Potato Squash Pancakes


Posted by Ashley | Posted in Recipes | Posted on 17-10-2012

  • Baking potatoes
  • Butternut Squash
  • 2 eggs
  • Flour
  • Butter for the pan
  • Salt and Pepper


Cut the neck off from the butternut squash, peel and quarter it… peel and chunk the potato as well








In the food processor  grate both the squash and the potato….



Remove from the processor and put them into a bowl… now add the two eggs and mix it all together… next add in some flour to make it all sort of stick together…


Next season with a dash of salt and pepper.. heat up a pan and add a little butter in it… next with your hands… it gets a little messy… smooch a ball of the mixture together and then pat to flatten it,  place it in the frying pan … cook on medium to low heat until the cake is heated through.





then flip and brown each side of the cake… serve with Meyer Maple Syrup … delicious….

Sugar Pudding Cookies


Posted by Ashley | Posted in Recipes | Posted on 10-10-2012

Everyone seemed to love last weeks bonus item so here is the recipe:

Can I please add to this a visual of me making these in my kitchen… Aliza and I got home and all the lights in the kitchen were working , but the microwave clock was off and the radio clock was off… and then I tried to plug in the mixer to mix the sugars and such and none of the outlets would work along the counter… so we have a double outlet that is on the light switch which is right next to the door to the house, which I have always thought is so weird, becasue who really needs an outlet next to the front door, becasue it is over the garbage cans and not near a flat surface… so I pull a kitchen chair over and then drag the kitchen aid mixer over to the chair to cream the butters together… please note that Darryl is not home… so before these extreme measures I did check the fuse box and nothing was blown… so I made these cookies on top of a kitchen chair… glad they turned out so good..

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 c. confectioners’ sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 package (3.4 oz) vanilla instant pudding mix
4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda

In the mixer, cream the butter, oil, and sugars for 4-5 minutes.

Beat in eggs, vanilla, and dry pudding mix.

Combine the flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture.

Roll into balls and place onto parchment paper on cookie sheets. Slightly flatten with the bottom of a  glass dipped in sugar. Bake at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes or until very lightly brown around the edges. 

Remove from oven and place on a cookie rack
