Buckwheat Popovers

I would serve these with meat and gravy instead of potatoes; they are like a Yorkshire pudding.

Savoury buttermilk scones or ‘biscuits’…

In The UK and Ireland, cookies are called biscuits.  Scones are more like what we call biscuits in the U.S., and they do have a little sugar in them, sometimes raisins or other fruit.  However, scones here in the U.S. are usually much sweeter than in Europe.  This recipe is very much like a buttermilk biscuit recipe in that it has no sugar whatsoever:

Will have to get out my over-sized muffin pans for these:

New Meatloaf

I tend to stick with the same meatloaf recipe because it’s tangy and flavorful and everyone loves it; I got the recipe from my cousin Judy about 18 years ago, and it has stood the test of time.   Everyone loves it!  However, the recipe below really sounds like it could be competition, have a look!

Creamy Rice Pudding

For whatever reason, my rice pudding never turns out as well as I would like it to, and I’ve tried many different methods.  Will give this one a try:

I don’t especially like coconut in a lot of things, but I do like coconut macaroons and coconut cake.  These macaroons as also gluten free!

Basic Vinaigrette with Variations

I started really experimenting with vinaigrette dressings about three years ago, and I generally always have something in the refrigerator door that I’ve put together.  My favorite adds a little dry mustard and honey.

Gus and Pearl Marlin with Grand Daughter, Lisa Marlin

Lisa Marlin is my second cousin on the Ferrier side of the family, and she recently sent this photo to me to post on the blog.  Augustus Hounting Marlin was a cousin of my grandfather, Walter Elbert Marlin.  His wife, Pearl Ferrier Marlin, was my grandmother’s sister, my grandmother being Dulcie Ferrier Marlin.  Gus and Pearl had many children and one of them, Herbert Marlin, married Dorothy Jameson and their daughter, Lisa, is shown above with her grandparents, Gus and Pearl Marlin, at their home in Missouri.

Great Aunt Pearl (Ferrier) Marlin and First Child, Bill

This is my grandmother’s sister, Pearl Ferrier Marlin, with her first child, Bill.  Look at her tiny waist! Not sure when it was taken but it has gone from Missouri to California, back to Missouri and then again back to California. The photo was sent to my grandmother (California) by a sibling of Bill’s, not sure when.  Eventually my grandmother sent it on to Bill and his wife, Brooks Marlin.  The photo then was eventually sent to Bill’s sister, Lorraine Marlin Gentry (California).  Pearl looks a great deal like my grandmother, Dulcie Ferrier Marlin (she married a cousin of Pearl’s husband, Gus).

I like this recipe because of the yogurt base and the grapes.  I do another variation of this, very similar, but with dried cranberries and chopped pecans.

Uncle “Geroud” Ferrier

Another old photo sent to me by my Marlin second cousin.  We are also related on the Ferrier side of the family.  It has “Uncle Geroud Ferrier” written on the reverse.  Don’t know who it might have been unless it was Jordan Ferrier, the brother of my great grandfather, Charles Oliver Ferrier.  There is definitely a resemblance.  Note that the baby doesn’t look too happy, and you can see the legs of a man or boy behind the horse’s front legs…hopefully keeping hold of the baby for the photo!  I think Jordan Ferrier lived in Missouri all his life, so I am assuming, if it’s him, that the photo was taken there.
