Bird Food

Recipes referred to in posts can be found here.  These are usually old family favorites, so I make no claims on nutritional values or accuracy.  I will add and amend as becomes necessary.  For entertainment purposes only… 😉

Cup O’ Cake (ref: Comfort Food)

4 Tbsp flour

4 Tbsp sugar

4 Tbsp baking cocoa

1 egg

4 Tbsp milk

3 Tbsp oil

splash vanilla

Mix dry ingredients in cup, add egg and mix again, add rest of wet ingredients and mix well.  Can add 3 Tbsp chocolate chips, if desired.  Bake for 3 minutes in microwave on high.  Allow to cool a little, top with ice cream as an extra decadent treat.

Hot Toddy (ref: My Christmas Cold)

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 fluid ounces boiling water
  • 1 1/2 fluid ounces whiskey
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 slice lemon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

Pour the honey, boiling water, and whiskey into a mug. Spice it with the cloves and cinnamon, and put in the slice of lemon. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes so the flavors can mingle, then sprinkle with a pinch of nutmeg before serving.

Frozen Fruit Salad (ref: The Motherlode)

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2-4 bananas, mashed ripe
1 can crushed pineapple, drained well
1 cup Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise)
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
1 cup small marshmallows
1 jar maraschino cherries, drained

Cream cream cheese with mashed bananas.  Add pineapple and Miracle Whip.  Whip the cream, add to mix with cherries and marshmallows.  Put in mold and freeze.
