Paula's Fresh Apple Cake

I want to give a huge thanks to Paula Lurf for sending in this recipe she originally got from her great-grandmother. Usually the first cake of Fall, the smell of Apple Cake still brings the memory of her great-grandmother back to Paula. 


4 cups apples - peeled & sliced

1 cup pecans

2 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 cups unsifted flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

3/4 cup vegetable oil

Mix all together in a large bowl by hand. Bake in greased 13x9x2 pan for 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve warm with whipped creme. 


And That's Pad Thai


TikTok Baked Feta Pasta

Bert was pleasantly surprised with this recipe originally made famous on TikTok of all places. It is well-known for how easy it is to execute while still being delicious. Check out the written version she followed here. Better yet, check out one of the top viral videos describing the dish on TikTok below:

Swirled Tahini Sweet Bread

Rivet has made this recipe with fabulous success. It was great to have around for snacks for the next few days, kind of like a classic banana bread. This one brings a great mix of sweet and savory seasame flavors, and almost gives you a sense of peanut butter from the tahini in the recipe. 

Somalian Digaag Qumbe Stew

Every year around Christmas-time, Tyler's family tries to venture out and try a new dish we've never had before. A tradition meant to break tradition. Last year, it was the Somalian dish Digaag Qumbe. This was the last time Tyler's immediate family was able to all get together before the pandemic hit, so its a very nice memory to have!


Digaag Qumbe is essentially a chicken stew with yogurt, coconut milk, and a great combination of many spices. It is best served on rice or spinach, but the best part is pairing it with a freshly peeled banana. The blend of spice and cream, hot and cold, savory and sweet; it's a symphony of contradictions.
