Taste of Home Recipes Across America

 

Taste of Home Recipes Across America, is one recipe book I think everyone should own. It is full of wonderful recipes that the whole family can truly enjoy. It is divided into 5 regions (Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest, and West). In this cookbook it offers 735 delectable recipes!! I had a lot of fun looking at each recipe and I found a lot that I am excited to try out!

Over the weekend I decided to do some cooking and I tried out a couple of the recipes, and I have to say I was pretty impressed. I did an Irish Soda Bread and a Venison Roast! Both recipes turned out really well. My husband loves venison and he said this recipe is one of the best he has had. I was impressed he said that, as he has tried so many different ways to cook venison!

One recipe I really loved was the Irish Soda Bread! My mother-in-law makes something similar to this all the time! I was impressed with the recipe, it turned out really well. I did add a little cinnamon to my recipe but I kept everything else the same.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbs butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter until crumbly.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg and buttermilk. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Fold in raisins.
  3. Knead on a floured surface for 1 minute. Shape into a loaf and placed on a greased baking sheet. Cut a 1/4 inch deep cross in the top of the loaf. Beat the remaining egg and brush over the loaf.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 3-35 minutes or until golden brown.

What is Pic The Gift-

Pic The Gift is a great site to shop for personalized photo gifts and more. As you can see above I ordered a custom made cutting board. They carry items from custom phone cases, mouse pads, holiday products, and more. They also include Free Shipping on All Orders. Their site is very easy to use when you go through the process of custom designing your product. It was very quick and simple when I created my cutting board! I was really impressed!

My thoughts- 

Overall I was really impressed with the Personalized Cutting Board I received. In just a few steps  I was able to upload the background and then apply the A in the center to stand for Apley! I was shocked at how easy it was to create my design! It was really nice to see all the art they had available to use if needed! When creating a custom product can sometime take awhile for the item to be shipped. With Pic The Gift my item was made and shipped super quick, I was pleasantly surprised!

The quality of the cutting board is really nice. I haven’t had a glass cutting board in years so it is a little different then a plastic or wood. It seems to be really nice and I haven’t had any troubles with it so far. It is kind of thin and I was worried it would break easily but so far when I clean it and such I have had no problems with it! I would recommend this to all of my friends for sure. It seems like if all the other products they sell are similar to this, you will receive a great product!
