On my Mind :Cooking From Scratch

I am learning how to cook from scratch. I am starting at the very beginning. I learned the rudiments of cooking ( how to follow a recipe and make simple meals) from watching my mother in the kitchen, but now I am putting theory into practice.  I am discovering, much to Matt's waistline's  dismay, I enjoy baking. This is one of my first attempts: Applesauce Cake from scratch! Yum!


  1. Ooh that looks good. I love apples and I love cake , so combining the two sounds great to me. Off to look for a recipe online.
    Visiting via the On my Mind feature at Down to Earth.
    PS - Your baby is beautiful.

  2. Growing up, there were 8 in my family and we each had a night of the week we had to cook dinner on (my dad didn't cook) so I learned early but gave it up for a while before I learned about nutrition. I love cooking from scratch now! Looks like you're doing a good job.

  3. I wish you well on your cooking endeavors. I have posted several our my family's favorites on my blog if you want to look up recipes in my search option you are more then welcome to give them a try.
