Snow Ice Cream–Make Magical Memories

We have snow–lots of snow.  Kids are still home from school.  Why not make some fun memories with the kids and the snow?  I have to admit even if you don’t have kids or grandkids to do this with–it is a lot of fun for adults.  After all, we all have a little kid inside […]

Christmas Fudge

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  The snow outside really makes it feel like Christmas is right around the corner.  My “Claim to Fame” at Christmas is my Chex Party Mix and my fudge.  Many people are intimidated about making fudge.

Home-made Christmas gifts

Even though it is raining outside–the calendar says it is December the 6th. That means Christmas is less than 3 weeks away. Gift giving is a nice tradition.

Carrot Cake

The Butcher and I got to make a trip to Niagra Falls that coincided with my birthday.  I searched high and low for the “perfect” carrot cake.  I couldn’t even find a decent carrot cake. I decided when we got back home to make my own carrot cake.  The recipe I used couldn’t have been […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

The Butcher is one year older.  He had a delightful birthday if I say so myself!  When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday he said PUC.  I couldn’t guess what that meant so he had to tell me, pineapple upside down cake.  Once I knew what he wanted, the […]
