Back in The Day

If you have ever gone to Savannah Georgia then you have
 probably been to "Back in The Day" Bakery. I was so excited when this book 
came out because I love Savannah and have stopped by the bakery every trip. 
But I was even more excited as I turned each page! 
This is a must have cookbook for anyone who loves to not only read cookbooks but bake! 
You really get that down home feeling from every recipe.
 And can tell Griff and Cheryl  Day really 
put their heart and soul into this book. I know it will become a treasure 
at my house!

Where Would You Love to Cook today?

Look how pretty this kitchen! 
I found the picture at
I really don't want to mess it up but I do want to make 
Homemade tortillas. But rolling them out will make a mess
you have a press.....
Yes I am a gadget girl...

I love this thing!!!
No flour on the counter...
No flour on the floor...
No mess counter....
 You can see one at

You can get one at the Bosch Store also on about 
87th south and  7th east if you live in Salt Lake City.
It does come with some recipes but we all have our favorite:

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup vegetable shortening

I put these ingredients in my kitchenaid and mix with the dough hook. 
You don't want it to be to sticky so if you need more flour add it. 
Some times it takes about 1/4 more. Roll into balls and put on a 
cookie sheet and cover with a dish towel.
 Let it rest for 30 minutes. When we are ready to make our tortillas, 
follow directions for tortilla maker - this batch will make about 8.

It is so easy and takes no time....
One of my favorite "Have to Haves"

Where Would You Love to Cook Today?

Oh my gosh have you ever seen a more darling shelf !
I saw this on Pinterest and trace it to 
But the minute I saw this I knew I had to cook 
in this Kitchen...
I kind of think it has a hutch look and I love 
the cups on the bottom of the shelf.
 Some people are just so cleaver...
I think I will make....

Lemon Meringue Bars

  • stick(s) (16 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 3/4 cup(s) plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup(s) plus 3 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) plus 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) coarse salt
  • 6 large eggs, plus 4 large egg whites
  • 2 1/4 cup(s) plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup(s) plus 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make crust: Put butter, flour, confectioners sugar, 2 teaspoons lemon zest, and the salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until well blended.
  2. Transfer mixture to a 9-by-13-inch rimmed baking sheet. Press batter evenly into baking sheet. Chill in freezer 10 minutes. Bake until golden, 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Make filling: Whisk together whole eggs, 1 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, the lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons lemon zest. Pour over crust. Bake until filling is set, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Keep oven at 350 degrees.
  4. Make meringue topping: Put egg whites and 1/2 cup granulated sugar in the clean bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.
  5. Using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon, spread meringue over filling, swirling to create soft peaks. Bake until meringue begins to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Cut into bars. Bars can be refrigerated in an airtight container, up to 1 day.
