Frankoma Lover

I have a serious obsession with Frankoma Pottery. I know. I know. I am like an eighty year old woman. The only difference is I still won't puffer in public. But I might start chewin tobaccer and all. I kid. I kid. If you are judgin and all.
Anyhoo, I got this piece last Christmas and I have never baked anything in it cause I am scared of messin it up. But tonight? Tonight?
Apple Dumplins were callin my name....at 11 pm. And I was a nervous wreck.
Not over the fact that my thighs might swell up the size of Sequoyah tree trunks, but what if my Frankoma can't handle the heat?
So I paced and fidgeted and worried for 45 minutes.... Until he came home to momma.
Now I am all Frankoma Schmankoma. Apple Dumplin? Hello lover of my soul. Burp.

Yummo! That looks great. My mom had a Frankoma OBSESSION...Wagon Wheel pattern to be exact. Must be an "Oklahoma thang".

Linda said...

I agree with Andie, ya can't post pics like that w/o the recipe!

And how DO you not have thighs the size of Sequoya’s? Aside from the fact that you are probably nearly half my age? Love to hate you. I'm kidding! I want that recipe.

I so wanted something from Frankoma pottery for the centennial. I have a quilt to make for the centennial and I got my stamps, but I wanted pottery too.

Post that recipe woman NOW!!!! HEHE!! Oh I sent a Christmas card to Dorothy Magazine have you heard from her? I asked if she knew my granny since they were in the same war together but she hasn't responded so I'm guessing not. Have a great day!!!!

have no fear of the heat, your frankoma can take it! Unless your oven gets hotter than about 1800 degrees.

Writer Chick said...

yep, need the recipe. I agree with the other, you can't tease us like this. It just isn't fair. P.S. Have the hamster police shown up yet? Did you have a little memorial? Say a few words?

And girl, don't be stopping in the 'hood--homeless or not. Throw a blanket out the window and keep rollin. Wait you're in Atlanta--thrown them a fan or something and keep rolling.

Oh, and I have deep piles of snow in my yard. It is so beeeuuutiful. Now send me that recipe and I'll save you some snow :-)

Lo said...

uhhh yes recipe please for when I get off the silly diet

*Keli* said...

Hellooooo...did you save me a piece???? And of course, I'll need you to forward that recipe to my email so I can then forward it to Mr. Mom's email, so he can bake it up for me! Please! As for the Frankoma collection, my Mother was obsessed! My Dad still has the Wagon Wheel collection all boxed up and tucked away. xo Kel

Wow... when I was in my first office job 20+ years ago, there was this like 70 year old lady that worked with me and she collected this pottery too. She wore her hair in a french roll/bun every day all 9 years that I worked there and she wore her blouses buttoned to her neck goozle... oh and don't forget her orthopedic shoes... Gotta love her! I'm sure she's dead now... since she was a 2-pack a day smoker. Wow... memories from a piece of pottery!!!

Yes, I agree, I NEED that recipe! Anything that is so good you have to bake it at 11:00 pm must be shared. I loved the coffee cake recipe.
