 What is your temperature right now? Grab a cookbook and turn to that page, and tell us what you find. And tell us what part of the country you live in. If  the recipe sounds like something you would like , share the recipe with us or plan on making this in the next couple of weeks.

 This is from Southern Living, Our Best 5-Star Recipes. It's 54 degrees near Daytona Beach, Florida, so this is what I found on page 54. I think this would be good.

Marbled Dessert Loaf

3/4 cup butter, softened
2 (3 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 1/3 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup cocoa

Preheat oven to 350.

Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in vanilla. Pour half of batter into a separate bowl. Sift cocoa over half of batter; beat at low speed until blended. Spoon half of chocolate batter into greased 9x5x3" loafpan; top with half of vanilla batter. Swirl batters together with a knife to create marbled effect. Top with remaining chocolate batter and vanilla batter. Swirl batters again.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil to prevent top from getting too dark, and bake 20 additional minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.

I only have one cookbook unpacked (still working on the library).  This one is from a cookbook put out by the Lenox Ambulance Service. There are 3 recipes on page 19 but the first one I saw was the middle so here it is.

Cookie Fruit Salad brought to you by Echo Pierce

1 c. buttermilk

1 small pkg instant vanilla pudding

8 oz cool whip

1 medium can crushed pineapple

2 cans mandarin oranges

14 Keebler fudge-striped cookies


Mix pudding and buttermilk. Fold in Cool Whip. Drain fruit and fruit fruit and cookies. Stir and refrigerate overnight to blend flavors. Stir before serving.

I grabbed my favorite cookbook for this but my temperature turned it to a seafood section. While I am getting a LITTLE more into seafood, the recipe on this page is Saute de Scupions a la Nicoise.....Squid with Tomatoes and Anchovies.....probably wont make that LOL.




One more degree up and it would be Le Souffle aux Framboises, Fresh Raspberry Souffle....I would totally make that if I could get some good fresh berries!

 I think I've eaten something similar, but without the cookies. Wonder if that would add crunch, or if they would get soggy in all that.  19 degrees? Oh man!

That's actually a heatwave right now. I really hate winter right now.

 I think most people would like fried squid (calamari) better, but I bet my DH would like this. His family makes it a lot of different ways. So what's your temp?
