I grew up in the middle of Florida citrus country. In fact, my neighborhood was a former orange grove. We had orange trees in the yard and an abundance of fresh-squeezed orange juice all winter. My mom was always trying out new recipes featuring oranges and orange juice.
One childhood favorite was Hot Orange Coffee Cake (original name, eh?). I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so I made one this morning. Here it is, ready to go in the oven. Doncha like the juxtaposition of coffee mugs on my kitchen counter?
I did do just a tiny bit of orange stash enhancement this week. Hancock Fabrics had this orange bandana print - and I'm a sucker for bandana prints. I limited myself to a half yard, but I may have to go back. They had other colors as well!
Some orange spools were created using Bonnie Hunter's Spoolin' Around pattern.
A scrappy orange house, also a Bonnie Hunter pattern.
And of course, another orange New Orleans house! The upstairs front only looks yellow because of the sunlight - it's just as orange as the rest of the house.
Now I think I'll try out my coffee cake and enjoy a cup of coffee while I check out what the other Rainbow Challenge scrappers have been up to this week!
