Marshmallow Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Some recipes are classics.  They are as good today as they first appeared years ago.  I am sure you  have several in your recipe collection.  Many times those recipes came from the back of bags or packages instead of the Internet as they do now.

Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Rice Pudding Pops

Whenever I think of comfort food, rice pudding is usually on the list.  There is just something about pudding that makes you feel better.  Growing up my dad was a big rice pudding fan.  A good rice pudding is made with simple ingredients like milk and eggs and that is exactly how  Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding is made, with real ingredients.  It is also gluten free which is important at our house. August 9th is actually National Rice Pudding Day and in honor of it, Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding  asked me to celebrate with them! One of my favorite [Continue Reading...]
