Tasty Tuesday on Wednesday- a Day Late But Not a Recipe Short
So I have no great excuse for not posting yesterday even though I started my day super early and was busy until 10 p.m. I had spent all day Monday working on these two Lord of the Rings banners for one of my best friend's middle son whom I've known since before he was born. He's a senior this year at George Fox University and an R.A. for a group of freshman guys. He had asked me to make these as he is doing a Lord of the Rings themed floor. They did take a lot longer than I thought, but I am pleased with the results.
With the busy-ness, I thought it would be fun to delve into some of my recipe boxes and find a few simple recipes to share with you. I love collecting old recipes, so I am feeling blessed with the three boxes of my Nana's and Grandpa's recipes. The large file folder is my collection of recipes gleaned from magazines and the internet over the first years of marriage.
I decided to share a simple recipe today for what my Nana called, "American Strudel". Being originally from Austria, she made the most amazing strudel. As she was also a very creative cook and baker, she also loved to try her own version of recipes. This is where we get this delicious and simple strudel. I love how it says "it freezes beautifully, baked or unbaked, and can be ready in moments for unexpected guests". We've enjoyed it for breakfast, afternoon snack, and for dessert- especially when served with ice cream. It's a great recipe to use this time of year as you can make up a batch when you've got a free moment then have it ready for family or guests!
