Mama Reed's Caramel Apple Cake

Mama Reed didn't really have a recipe for this cake, but I took one of her recipes and used it as the base to build it on so I decided to give her credit. It's sort of like a collaboration with the great grandmother I know only through stories, and I like how that feels. After making a spiced baked apple cake I topped it with a Caramel Fudge icing, similar to my Peanut Butter Fudge Icing and ... Continue Reading

Warm Cinnamon Pudding Cobbler

Warm Cinnamon Pudding Cobbler

Cobblers like this were always family favorites growing up. Mama made one at least once a week. She loved them because of how budget friendly it was, she always had the ingredients on hand, and they don't even require an egg! My ... Continue Reading

Interview with father and founder of An American Homestead

Okay, so those of y'all that have been with me a while know by now that I quit watching tv. This is due to a variety of reasons but the short answer is that the list of reasons why I shouldn't watch grew far longer than the microscopic list of reasons why I should.
