Easy Blueberry Cake

blueberry cake 001

As I told you, I was going to bring you a new dessert to share with you this week, that is if turned out Okay and wasn’t an almost disaster like another one I made two weeks ago!!! Husband and I love to have a big fruit platter in the heat of the summer with slices of pound cake and different kinds of cheeses. I had made a buttermilk pound cake for Kenny and I to enjoy with the fresh melons and berries that are coming in now and after about 12 minutes in the oven, I started to smell something burning! Upon opening the oven and as soon as the smoke cleared confirmed it!! My 2 piece bundt pan was dripping out cake dough through the bottom and cooking on the bottom of my oven, GRRR!!! In a mad dash, Kenny and I grabbed 2 loaf pans, greased and floured them and poured what we could rescue from the old bundt pan quicker than you could bat an eye or maybe I should just break down and buy a new one instead of using something as old as I, ha ha. Well to say the least, they were still edible although a little bit on the dry side, oh WELL. Bundt pan quickly went to the barn for Kenny to fix whatever the problem was which turned out to be a bottom that ended up getting a little bent!

What happened to the ice cream???

This weekend granddaughter and husband Andy had a big fish fry to celebrate their new home and of course when I asked what I could bring, her husband insisted on a big dish of homemade cole slaw and some potato salad wouldn’t hurt either! I had decided to try this cake but didn’t tell them I was doing so! Along with the fish we also had homemade grits with cheese, baked beans and rolls; and then, for Gram, she got her very own chicken deep-fried as I have never been a fresh-water fish lover. I did however try the fish and was impressed as it didn’t taste like the fish we had up north when I was a kid (but my deep-fried to perfection chicken, was still better!!). Others brought desserts too and one was a very, very chocolate cake along with a coca cola cake, both very yummy.

What I like about this cake, is that you can substitute any berry flavor you want and it would still be delicious, maybe next time I’ll do a strawberry or raspberry! My blueberries are still not ready, but look like they are going to be abundant this year, so I had to rely on my local produce stand.

Baked Italian Zucchini Nibblers

Hope everyone had a nice Mother’s Day! As I mentioned, it was the first year that I got to have my daughter with me and it was so nice. Kenny cooked up my omelet and then topped it off with a steak on the grill,,,,,,,,,,,Yum!

Now let me share this delicious recipe with you. I’m sure most of you out there would call this a frittata but I just prefer to call em as I see em! I found this recipe in one of my old cookbooks (probably before the word frittata even existed, ha ha) and with some alterations to the original recipe, they came out pretty damn good, even if I say so my own Selph?  That was just a little pun on our last name and my computer is telling me I need to do a spell check, as if I didn’t know how to spell my last name, really now……….. Even my daughter thought they were pretty tasty. We had them with some of my homemade spaghetti sauce and I think the next time, I will just make a basic pizza sauce for our dipping pleasure! So with that, here we go:
