    Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake

    I had in my possession, for about 20 years the most amazing lemon bread recipe. It was from one of my mom’s old friends, Mrs. Bratnober. That woman could bake. Over the years, each time that I made this bread I fought all urges to eat the whole loaf myself without sharing any.  However, I wasn’t raised by wolves, so I shared it with The Stud Muffin.  My mother would be so proud.  About a month ago I went to my recipe box to grab the card and make this so I could feature it during my week of  “All things lemon“.  I kid you not, I went through every single card in…

    Skillet Honey Cornbread

    There is something about a big square of warm cornbread straight from the oven that’s been rubbed down with copious amounts of butter.  Ahhh, heaven.  I’ve wanted to share this recipe for about 7 months now, but after we moved from Minnesota last summer down to South Carolina, I noticed that a lot of my recipes went missing.  I have no idea how- I packed all the boxes, but some boxes got unpacked so things could fit in the moving truck, and my guess is my recipe binders got sucked into some vortex as we crossed the Mason Dixon Line.  I’ve been testing various recipes to find something that came close, and I…

    Better than Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

    Today is my 1 year Blogiversary and I’m quite excited. It’s a big deal to make it through the first year of blogging and I’m seriously excited about what the next 12 months will bring to Real Food Girl: Unmodified. To thank all of you for putting up with me for an entire 365 days, I asked you over on my Facebook page if you’d rather have this recipe OR my split pea soup with ham recipe.  Hands down this recipe won.  But for those of you who asked for the soup, don’t worry. It will be on the blog later this week. I also have some fun surprises for the rest of…

    Spectacular Blueberry Scones

    I would love to live in England.  I love the accents, the tea, and scones.  Granted I wouldn’t enjoy living under monarchy rule, I would enjoy being so close to all the places I’ve ever wanted to visit.  Maybe my desire to live in England is sorta like my desire to have a purple kitchen.  The desire is one thing and the reality is something else entirely. Regardless, The Stud Muffin and I enjoy a good scone.  There are plenty of nasty ones out there.  There is nothing more painful than a bland, dry, crumbly scone.  We’ve tried many different scones over the years and I think we’re sort of becoming scone aficionados. …

    Easy No-Knead Rustic Bread

    Food Hippies, I have the easiest, no-knead bread recipe and I’m super excited to share it with you!  Ya know what else? It’s SO good. I love to cut a couple of thick slices, and wrap it in some foil and toss it in a 350 degree oven for a few minutes and then slather on some nummy, organic, grass-fed butter from a local dairy.  The smells wafting through my house and the warm, buttery bread making happiness in my mouth are almost too much to handle, but I do manage.  I manage for the greater good, y’all.  I know that wheat has been getting a really bad rap lately, but like I’ve…

    Carrot Pineapple Bread

    I like quick breads.  I’m sure since I’ve already posted a muffin recipe and a banana bread recipe that you already knew that.  I like them because they’re easy, quick (hellooo Capt’n Obvious), tasty, they make a good snack, and they make a good (Christmas) gift.  This bread has a lot of flavor and you’ll wish you’d heard of this years ago because you’re going to love it that much.  This bread is simply magnificent.  I thought with Christmas right around the corner you might be looking for something new/different to bake for a Christmas gift exchange, or for a Holiday gathering.  I love receiving home-baked gifts, don’t you? This recipe is super…

    Double Blueberry Muffins

    I’m trying to steer TSM away from his normal breakfast of a cup of coffee and cereal bars claiming to have all sorts of nutritious grains, but they’re really just High Fructose Corn Syrup, preservative, artificial colors, flavors and GMO delivery systems.  Thankfully, he likes scones, which we’ve made plenty of lately so I thought I’d try my hand at making homemade muffins.  Turns out, these homemade muffins are easy and fabulous!   Yes, I *do* have a from scratch recipe for muffins from culinary school, but it’s one of those overly heavy, super dense, almost gummy types of mammoth muffins, and that’s not happy food in my opinion.  I like my muffins…
