Our extended family has decided to get together once a month throughout the summer for dinner and a bonfire. It’s great to stay in touch over the busy summer months and enjoy each other’s company. Everyone brings something to share. So I decided to raid the recipe box again. I found a simple recipe for a delicious jam cake.

Chocolate Mocha Cake Recipe with Fudgy Frosting

Finally it’s starting to feel like fall and it’s perfect weather for a nice hot beverage. So it’s perfect that today is national coffee day and national mocha day.

Buttermilk Biscuits with 3 Flavored Butters

It’s June and to me that means summer has really begun. If it has not already started, it will very soon be summer vacation for kids. This means outdoor barbecues, trips to the beach, and camping, each I’m really looking forward to this year.

Checking my vintage recipe drawer, I found a recipe for flaky buttermilk biscuits. I whipped up a batch, and I know they will be very popular at any barbecue. the 3 flavored butters I whipped up as well go perfectly with these delicious biscuits.

These are really easy to make. The recipe makes about 2 dozen biscuits so you will have enough for backyard parties. They also keep well in a resealable container. Make up a batch and watch them disappear during supper.
