From Kitchen to Table: Ultimate Recipes e-Book #Review and #Rafflecopter #Giveaway and Baking for the Firemen

Share this! Your friends will love it...

The Ultimate Recipes e-Book will certainly have you going From Kitchen to Table! This massive download; it came in 4 separate files. BIG, HUGE, FREAKIN’ FILES. There are 5,000 recipes in those files and each “set” has distinct cookbooks. Most files are sent in both WORD and PDF formats which explains why the files are so freakin’ HUGE.

  Set 1 includes a small cookbook that is a confusing mix of Appetizer, Bread, Cookie, Deep Fryer and Salad recipes. Set 2 is equally confusing; a file containing Chocolate, Gift Jar and the Ultimate Chicken Wing Cookbook, one full of Amish recipes (this is where the demonstration recipe came from), Apple recipes, Cheesecake recipes and a reprint of a small cookbook called Cathead Biscuits and Garlic Fried Chicken.

Set 3 brings us Chicken recipes, Crockpot recipes, Delicious Italian recipes, Diabetic recipes and a reprint of The Complete Library of Cooking:  A Five Volume Set of Everything You Need to Know about Cooking. (I must admit to not reading it through to verify that statement.)

Set 4 closes with Ice Cream recipes, Mexican recipes, Pudding recipes (I know you were DYING for a pudding cookbook!), Camping, Jam and Kids recipes, More salads, Weightloss, Smoothies and Summer Party recipes, and more Bread recipes.

As you can see this e-book collection covers a lot of ground. The recipes are for the most part basic and easy to follow. They seem to me to be compilation of those fundraising cookbooks you find from churches and schools. Usually full of a collection of recipes handed in from parishioners or other interested parties and then bound together for a cause. There are a few diamonds in the rough but finding them can be a bit challenging. It’s a challenge with one of those cookbooks but faced with a multitude of them in an e format and it’s like digging for gold in a silver mine. The PDF format makes it challenging at best to page through to any recipe you seek. There is no easy search function to find a specific recipe. I suspect that when it comes to working with e-cookbooks people expect more.

That being said, if you are a beginning cook having this wealth of simple, easy recipes on hand is great. You can find tasty choices for easy meals and treats for your family on the computer and then print the recipe to use in the kitchen. You don’t have to collect all of those little cookbooks full of family recipes handed down through time. As I said, there are some gems to be found within the dross. 

The following Amish Blueberry Cake is one of them. It was time to bake for the firemen again and I wasn’t feeling well. I was going to just make brownies but this cake was just as easy and it was truly delicious. The recipe is simple and you could easily substitute other fruits for the blueberries. I think the next time I make it might just add cherries instead since I am not a big fan of blueberries.  I did try a piece – or two or three – of this cake and it was moist, dense and the crumb topping was to die for!

You will need: 
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
2 cups flour ( I used White Whole Wheat)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups blueberries, well drained ( I used frozen)

1/4 cup cold butter (unsalted)
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon

(I doubled the recipe for the firemen so if my photos don’t look like the ingredient list, that is why.)

Preheat oven to 375°

Cream together the sugar, oil and the egg until lemon colored.
Stir in the milk.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and stir into the creamed mixture.

Gently fold in the blueberries.

Make the topping:

Combine all of the topping ingredients and cut together with two knives or a pastry blender. I then squeezed the topping to make some nice clumps.

Doubled recipe went into a 10 x 14″ pan

Spread batter into greased and floured 9×9″ square pan.

Sprinkle with the topping.

Bake in the 375° oven for 45 – 50 minutes until it’s golden brown.

After it cooled a bit I sprinkled some powdered sugar on top and sent it on its way to the fire meeting. It was very well received. Not much came home but it was enough for me to have a little taste. It was very good. I LOVED the topping. Not too sweet with just that perfect hint of cinnamon.
