Time for a Coffeecake Break

homemade buttermilk coffeecake
Momma's Jam-Swirl Coffeecake
My grandfather was a carpenter. The smell of sawdust still makes me think of him and my grandparents' garage - and taking Saturday-morning rides in his blazer to the dump. Oh, how excited my cousins and I would get when Pa would give us our very own bags of garbage to throw into the big hole in the ground at the dump.

What's that nonsense have to do with food - or coffeecake, for that matter? Carpenters stop for coffee break. At least, Pa always had midmorning snack, and my father-in-law's a good one for coffee break. (Yes, he's a carpenter, too.)

And today I'm guest rambling over at The Country Cook's fabulous blog. So if you're interested in a good ol' coffeecake recipe from my momma, my Pa's fourth daughter, head over to The Country Cook's corner of the Internet and show her space some love. And then go hug a carpenter, or your grandpa or any hard-working man in your life who loves coffeecake.
