I usually make these for breakfast and as a coffee-time snack. I also like using my rhubarb for pies and sauces.
My husband and I—we have five children and eight grandchildren—are retired after 50 years of farming. We live simply, relying on our garden. I must be working...we're in our 70's
These doughnuts are a favorite of our three grown children. Make them up at night—next morning, it's quick and easy to roll them out and fry them when everyone else's getting ready for the day.
Although he works for the electric company, at heart my husband's a farmer...so we give a lot of produce away!
Because they're so rich, I usually make these muffins for special occasions—brunches and breakfasts mainly. They're good at all hours, though, as a snack with tea or coffee.
My husband and I plus our 14-year-old son live in a suburban area. Luckily, our property backs up against a farm. Last year, we were excited to see deer in the yard—two adults and four babies.

This coffee cake is a sure hit. I used to prepare it for special occasions only. But now I try to bake it whenever I know overnight company is coming. It's always appreciated at breakfast the following morning.
I often serve this cheddar bread along with bowls of steaming homemade soup. It helps warm my cattle-raiser husband and our two sons on chilly evenings up here in Canada.

Whenever friends compliment me on my zesty cake, I say, "Thanks Mom!" Her recipe for Lemon Streusel Cake was among dozens I took with me when I turned 21 and left home.
When I was growing up, we had five kinds of fruit trees plus a big garden in our yard. Many times during the summer, I'd be so full from snacking on the "crops" that I'd have trouble finishing supper!
Today, I'm a nurse in a large hospital—but my husband and I look forward someday to living in the country.
