EWE - Sweetypie -one pan chocolate cake!


Well Gaye chose "  Sweetypie"for our theme this week.  I, for some reason , did not notice the "pie" part and I made a cake.  In my head I just thought it was a sweet week!   Sorry Gaye!  I made Ellie Kriegers One Pan Chocolate Cake.  It sounded so interesting to me.  It contains no eggs or milk.  And you mix it up in the same pan you bake it in.  What could be easier than that?  And the best part is....it is chocolate!  And it is delicious!  You mix up the dry ingredients in the pan. Then you make a well in the center and pour in the oil and the Vanilla flavoring.   Then you  pour a mixture of cold water and apple cider vinegar over the dry ingredients and mix together. To make the batter.  Just bake and voila. Delicious chocolate cake!

It has been such beautiful weather here lately other than a few thunderstorms.  I love that spring is coming!  I hope you all are having good weather too!  My camper seems to be calling out to me....take me somewhere and soon!

Eating with Ellie -Lunch!





This week Margaret chose our theme to be lunch.... Soup salad or sandwich!   Since I made egg salad sandwiches last week I decided to make soup this time.  I think I have made this before, but it was so good it was worth repeating,  i made Pasta fagioli with zucchini.  I did make one change to the recipe. Hamburger.  I just wanted some meat in there!  This soup is so easy to make even a beginner could prepare it.  I made some little cornbread muffins to go with it.  

I have to say, we love love love this soup.  My DH said it was the best soup he has had in a while!

You can find the recipe in Ellie's Weeknight Wonders cookbook.  The ingredients are diced tomatoes, garlic, onions, zucchini, chicken broth, and elbow macaroni.

Eating with Ellie -march to your own drummer



Well I am a day late with my post.  As usual.  Kayte chose March to your own Drummer as our theme this week.  That gave us a world of recipes to choose from.   I wanted a little something light and different for our dinner tonight.  We have been traveling and eating big time for the last week.  So I chose Ellie's Creamy Curried Egg Salad Sandwiches.  I guess I could have cleaned this up a bit for the photo!  Lol. The recipe can be found in Comfort Food Fix.

First, if you do not have a rapid egg cooker, you need to run, not walk, to Amazon and order yourself one.  I have two.  One at home and one in my camper.  They only cost about $12.00 or so.  They steam eggs.  You can have six boiled eggs in about seven minutes and they are perfect every time and easy to peel.  No green in the yolks, just beautiful golden.



This was easy to mix up.  I would give Ellie's recipe a thumbs up.   Egg salad with a kick to it.

We have been camping this week down at St. George's Island.  It was good to get away.  It was spring break somewhere though and the beach was swarming with young people.  There was nothing much to do there and we had some rain, so we played a lot of cards and dominoes, and watched four movies.  We saw the Accountant, the Girl on a Train, Hacksaw Ridge, and Arrivals.  They were all pretty good, but I guess my favorite out of those four was Hacksaw Ridge.  I love a book or movie with a hero.  Arrivals with amy adams will put your brain in gear to figure it out.  Deep.

Check out our website at Ewe.   Margaret does such a good job with our site.  Thank you.

DC -corked breton galette



It is cookie day...a day late for me.  We make cookies every other Tuesday.   This week’s cookie is a “corked” Breton Galette.  
I did not have a cork so I used the end of a cheese spreader. However my "cookies" came out more like mini cakes. I guess I cut them too thick?  Or they rose to high?   So they are not perfect. I filled one with Nutella just to try it.   The rest I filled with blueberry preserves.  Let me tell you this is delicious.  These cookies are so buttery and delicious.  Almost like a pound cake taste.  Which I love love.    But WHAT did I do wrong?  I need to know!
I'm so glad I made these. But I want to try them again and see if I can get them to look more like cookies!
The recipe is on page 291 of Dorie’s Cookies.  If you love cookies you really need to get Dorie’s  Book.
