My grandmother, with whom I share the same middle name, used to sing a little song to me when I was little prior to tickling me with her fingers (which posed as a bee), "There once was a bee who lived in a tree; and all he could do was bzzzzz sting, sting, sting sting...." (then the tickling ensued).

This site is in memory of her and the warmth all grandmothers and mothers give in making good food and creating memories in the kitchen.

Cheddar Apple Bread

I found this recipe years ago as I was beginning adulthood and looking to improve my stash of recipes. Cheese and apples have always been two of my favorite foods; I thought they sounded tantalizing together. I made it once and was hooked. It's such a unique and tasty bread. 

2 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. milk
1/3 c. margarine, melted
2 c. (8 oz) Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1 1/2 c. Chopped, peeled Granny Smith apples

Combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, milk and margarine. Mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees in greased and floured bread pan for 65 - 70 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
