Cornmeal and Fruit Loaf

Cornmeal and dried apples are staples in the southern cooks pantry but I don't believe that before this week I had ever thought of combining them.  I trust Dorie but I was very skeptical of how this would turn out. It turned out to be quite nice.  Different but nice.  The cornmeal made it slightly crumbly and crunchy and the apples made it moist. I enjoyed it as an afternoon snack.  I wish that I had some apple butter to spread on but it was fine plain.  Oh, I almost forgot to tell you how wonderful it smells baking. Thanks to Caitlin of Engineer Baker for picking this recipe.

Tropical Crumble

Tropical Crumble might be described as summer on a plate.  Mango, banana, brown sugar, pecans, and butter ( maybe a bit to much) go together to make this weeks dish for Tuesdays with Dorie.  It's different but really quite tasty. My family enjoyed it.  Thanks to Gaye of Laws of the Kitchen for hosting this week.

Carrot Spice Muffins

Nancy of  The Dogs Eat the Crumbs chose Carrot Spice Muffins for this weeks Tuesdays With Dorie.  I love muffins.  They are simple, quick and easy.  There is something so homey and comforting about fresh baked muffins.  Bake these and enjoy them with your morning coffee. 

PS:  I accidentally left out the raisins and they were still great.
