  1. Hi Louise,
    Great post and fabulous recipes! I always love to visit your blog as I am so interested to see what you have to post. So many recipes and delicious foods that pass by your blog...I am looking forward to making the St. Jospeh's Bread. Love all the ingredients and the story of that grandmother making 13 different s food s for that day. Amazing! The recipe from Spain looking interesting, sounds almost like a Creme Brulee. Plus the Summer Pie, another yummy dessert. Thank you so much for sharing,
    Have a Blessed St. Joseph's Day, Dottie :)

    1. Oh Nee, I'm so glad Hubby's Aunt liked the recipe. I would love to try this cream one day. I'm happy for your children too. Maybe they will save me some:) Today is Marion's birthday, yes this year it falls on the first day of Spring! Thank goodness she will be happy with a cake mix cake because there is less chance I will mess it up, lol...Marion sends squeezes of {{{hugs}}} back:)

  5. Happy St. Joseph's Day! I need to cook something Sicilian for dinner, but maybe this bread will be sufficient. ;-) Fun stuff. I haven't forgotten about Dream Whip, but it's been ages since I've used it. It used to be all the rage way back when, but it's not nearly as popular now, and for good reason. ;-)

    1. Marion and I went simple for St. Joseph's Day, John. Pasta Fazoole was on the menu, lol...I actually have Dream Whip in the pantry. It seems Marion remembers it from way back when:) She keeps it for Jell-O emergencies, lol..I didn't even know they still sold it. Thanks for visiting, John...

  7. I could totally use that bread recipe for dinner rolls, couldn't I? But I'm not going to make 13 different dishes for dinner, only 6: meat, starch, 2 veggies, rolls, dessert. That's enough for me.

    Happy St. Joseph's Day. I can celebrate with St. Joseph's "As-pir-in for chil-der-in" (remember that jingle?)

    1. Yes you certainly could, Marjie. I would love to see it after you bake it up and before it is all gone!!! I do remember that jingle. And I always have that orange and blue box in the medicine cabinet:)
