This Christmas my mom decided there should be a theme to the holiday. Though this idea is extremely corny, that's just the type of stuff we do around my house. So the theme became "old traditions, new traditions" because for the first year ever we had Christmas dinner in our house instead of my grandma's. Because of this, my mom decided she wanted to make two of my great grandmothers' recipes, pound cake from one side of the family and homemade banana pudding from the other side. This pound cake was the easiest one I've ever made and it tasted better than all of the complicated ones. My mom said it didn't rise as much as it used to when her grandmother made it but hopefully next time I make it I can figure out what to do differently that might change that. I hate how in most pound cake recipes you end up having to sift cups and cups of flour, so this was the perfect recipe for me. As you can see in the picture below we still have the recipe card in her original handwriting, funny how simple recipes were back then!

Grandmother's Pound Cake
Ingredients
2 cups sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
4 eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp lemon extract
Directions
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine sugar and butter, cream well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the flour and a pinch of salt. Once combined beat in vanilla and lemon extracts. Pour into greased bundt pan for approximately one hour, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Thompson raisins are dried seedless grapes of Vitis Vinifera variety. The large, yellow-green grapes that are dried into these delicious thompson raisins in USA are particularly flavorful and soft.Thompson reasons are more benefits for your health.

The varieties of rice are typically classified as long-, medium-, and short-grained.The grains of long-grain rice (high in amylose) tend to remain intact after cooking; medium-grain rice (high in amylopectin) becomes more sticky. Best wholesale rice distributors offer rice that are used for sweet dishes, for risotto in Italy, and many rice dishes, such as arròs negre, in Spain. Some varieties of long-grain rice that are high in amylopectin, known as Thai Sticky rice, are usually steamed.

Organic rice may be cooked and eaten as a high-fibre, high-nutrition wholegrain, often called brown rice, or might be husked and then served as white rice, which is less nutritious and has no fibre content. Is rice a high or low gi food? A few rice families have distinct and attractive fragrances and flavours, but most basmati brown rice is chosen to be bland so it can be cooked, served and eaten as a filling accompaniment to tastier foods.
