Recipe taken from “The Church Ladies’ Divine Desserts” by Brenda Rhodes Miller.
Another great cookbook is Joyce White’s “Brown Sugar: Soul Food Desserts from Family and Friends.” It is filled with holiday baking treasures.

I am very proud to present My Baking Portfolio which displays some of the tasty treasures that I have made over the past year. Don’t worry, I will continue writing about the music that we have all come to love but I also notice that occassionally people search the site for recipes so I decided to do this feature. I will eventually create a separate blog for baking, maybe. Here are some other holiday favorite for your enjoyment.

  1. I made the Pecan Tarts for Thanksgiving and I was a hit! First my husband comes into the kitchen and says “well look at her, Betty ain’t got nothing on her”. And while at my mom’s everyone raved. I made 48 and they were gone. Poof! And don’t worry, I gave credit to my wonderful internet friend. I can’t wait to make the Eggnog Rum Cake

  2. I can’t wait for the traditional Chrismas baked good package. I like the layout of the baked goods page, but what does the arrow at the top of the screen do? The basic format has potential and expands readily. I think it’s a winner, it exhibits the goods well at a quick glance and you could use the first page to link to more defined and categorized other pages, ie click on a cake and have a link to a cake page along with the recipe on the cake.

  3. You WENT there with the 7-Up cake!
    Embarassing question: Suppose I wanted to try my hand at the Egg Nog Cake; what utensils do you recommend (pans, bowl, mixer, etc)?
