Sarah,
I am a knitter and crocheter. I am 62, and have been knitting since I was 10, and crocheting since I was 15. So many years under my belt. The grands are getting a little big for all my knitting and such. They don't want sweaters anymore from Gramma, except for my 10 year old granddaughter. She will take anything I will make for her. Doll clothes, slippers, mittens, hats, sweaters, she is a girly girl, just like her Gramma. The boys will still use slippers and hats, but thats about it. Well lapghans probably. They would like some more of them too I imagine.

I too donate to charity, hats, mittens, lapghans and afghans.
I have so much yarn that hubby says I could open up my own store. I love yarn.

and ladies, all that cornbread talk made me hungry.
Patty

Grandma Judy, I'm sure your caregivers were happy with your cookies. I like Jiffy cornbread mix too as does DH. Have you ever take one box of mix and add 1 small can of crushed pineapple, juice and all. NO milk and NO egg. just the cr. pineapple and dry mix. Delicious. I have several other concoctions from the WW board using Jiffy. Now I have never heard of Yankee Cornbread. I grew up in Mass. and we never had cornbread and I don't think I ever had it until I married my southern DH. I do like sweetener in mine too.

I've also heard of adding a yellow cake mix to pancake mix. Seems like that is a secret ingredient of Marie Callendar's restaurant. I'm not a pancake eater. I know my DD and DH have tried it.

I use a lot of mixes because they are generally cheaper. One of my favorite recipes is for cornbread. I use Jiffy mixes. Two corn muffin mixes and one yellow cake mix. Add the ingredients as called for on the boxes. This combination makes a really good sweet cornbread. Yankee corn bread.

I am currently working with other mixes to see what I can do with them. This morning I was working with a peanut butter cookie mix. It doesn't taste anything like peanut butter cookies should so I added and extra egg, about a cup of peanut butter and two mashed bananas. I baked it in a square pan like brownies. The end product was great! Much better than I anticipated.

I also modified an oatmeal cookie mix using the zest from one large Lemon and the juice too. Then I added a cup of dried blueberries. They were terrific.

For the safety of my waistline they all went home with my caregiver so I wouldn't be tempted.

Love, Judy

I haven't been in the kitchen much today but it is getting toward supper time and I better come up with something.

Sarah, I knit. Just stocking caps and then in the winter I find some place to give them away. One year I had accumulated 300 but last year was only 200. Every winter I try and find some group that is collecting coats, jackets, sweaters etc. Last year I read about a Girl Scout Troup that was collecting clothes for needy children, and they went to them. I mentioned this to DS as 10 year old outgrows clothes pretty quickly. He bought me 3 trash bags full to take to the girls.

Easy banana bread is so easy I make it over and over again!

It freezes great! And is wonderful toasted.

Hi Everyone! emoticon

Hope it is turning out to be a good day for everyone. So far so good here. I have been crocheting this morning. I have some leftover yarns so I'm making an afghan out of them, nothing special as for the pattern though. All I can think of for scrap afghans is granny squares. Does anyone else crochet? What are you working on? Are there any crafters here?

Heather I don't think it would hurt Mammy's Cornbread to add more Splenda. The part of the south I'm from we don't eat sweet cornbread so I only add a tad to take the bitterness from baking soda. I get all into the jalapeno cornbread. Love hot and spicy foods.

What's cooking in your kitchens today? I'm thinking of making JoAnna"s Easy Banana Bread. Still in the thinking process though.

Catch Ya Later
