Hello! It’s Haley here, one of Tiffany’s daughters. (I’m the one in the red skirt.)
Since this is my first time writing for Daisy Farm Crafts, I wanted to introduce myself. I am home from BYU-Idaho for the summer after finishing my first semester and I loved it! I’m going to major in apparel entrepreneurship because I love fashion and clothes!
I enjoy watching movies, hanging out with friends, and keeping things nice and clean. I served a mission in Montana and Wyoming from July 2016 to February 2018. I am the fourth child and third girl in my family.
My first project for Daisy Farm Crafts was back in April and I made my first HDC crochet blanket.
That was my first time learning how to crochet. It definitely took some practice learning the stitch and even in the finished product I missed a few stitches, but I am so proud of the finished result.
Here is a link to the pattern of my blanket. It is definitely a beginner friendly pattern.
To keep myself busy here at home, I have decided to join my sister, Hannah, in baking some of our Grandma Anna Vee’s recipes. I personally did not know my Grandma Anna Vee because she died before I was born, but I find I am getting to know her better by baking her recipes! It is such a nice way to remember and honor her.
Since I was 12 years old, I have loved to bake! My favorite thing to bake is chocolate chip cookies. Every Sunday, for our family treat, I would make a batch of cookies. My family would eat most of them all that night. Sometimes I have a hard time making any other dessert because chocolate chip cookies are very easy to make, and I have the whole recipe memorized.
But I am excited to help out at the Daisy Farm and try out some of these recipes. I have chosen for my first one to bake some butterscotch brownies.
Before I started these brownies I wanted to know if my dad remembered them at all since it was his mom that created the recipe. He said he did remember the brownies and he loved eating them. His mom would make them thin and crispy. For me, I prefer my brownies to be thick and chewy. These brownies definitely turned out to be very delicious.
I wanted to make this recipe because it looked really easy and had simple ingredients that we already had on hand. I had a lot fun making it and they turned out to be so yummy. I made it two times and both times the whole pan was gone in like two hours. These go great with vanilla ice cream! They are more on the chewy side than the cakey side. This is definitely one of my favorite desserts now.
Here is the original recipe:
I followed the recipe exactly and the batter filled up an 8 by 8 square pan nicely. I baked the brownies for about 22 minutes until they got nice golden-brown color on top. For the nuts, I used just pecans in the first batch and they were tasty but felt a little boring. The second batch I made, I used pecans and walnuts and that was a really nice combination. It was the perfect amount of nuttiness.
I hope you have success making these brownies as I did. Super simple. Super easy. Definitely a crowd pleaser.
Hi all! It’s Tiffany, I’ll pop on here to say hello and express my gratitude for Hannah and Haley for taking on this project of getting their Grandma Anna Vee’s recipes online. I feel strongly that documenting a little bit about our ancestors is important to the future generations that will come after.
I only knew my husband’s mother for about 5 years before she died of cancer. The thing I remember the most about her is her food. She loved to make homemade treats. This recipe box that we inherited is mostly full of candy, cookies, pies and cakes.
I believe love can be express through our actions. Mine is crochet, hers was baking so stay tuned for more recipes!
Thank you so much for stopping by! If you just happened upon us through a Pinterest search of brownies, hello and welcome! I started Daisy Farm Crafts with the hope of becoming a grandma myself. I wasn’t intending to turn my love of crochet into a website, I was only writing down the patterns in hopes one of them would be the lucky one that would bless Hannah with a baby.
She and her husband Will have been trying for about 7 years to have a baby. But the miracle so far is that my blankets and blanket patterns have brought so many other babies into this world. It’s been an amazing part of this journey.
We love sharing our patterns with you! So if you happen to bake and have an interest in crochet, I invite you to take a look around my site!
You can always find me on Instagram or Facebook sharing my latest project I have on my hook. I share the stitches I’m using and try my best to explain what I’m doing and how. I enjoy sharing where my inspiration is coming from and other fun bits!
Have a wonderful day!
