Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

The season of green is upon us and for me that means mint!  If something is green, it should be mint in my book.  We have a divided house when it comes to mint.  Half of us love it and half of us don’t but all my mint haters have moved away from home so bring on the mint! Grasshopper ice cream pie is one way to enjoy some green and some mint. Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie is really one of those non recipe recipes!  You don’t have to have [Continue Reading…]

Malted Milk Ball Rice Krispie Treats

Malted Milk Ball Rice Krispie Treats

This is becoming a habit.  Mondays and slow cooker recipes.  I have found that I love using my slow cooker on Sundays especially.  We have 9:00 am church and are home by noon, or at least I am home by noon.  Because of his calling at church, my husband, can be there most of the day.  I love having dinner waiting in the slow cooker so that when he gets home, dinner is ready and waiting for us.  Sunday is suppose to be a day of rest, right?  Using my [Continue Reading…]

Recipe Repeats {Part 1}

Recipe Repeats Pt. 1

In the blogging world, I have been blogging for a long time.  It’s been seven and a half years and over 2,000 posts!  That’s a long time in blog years and a lot of posts. In my early blog years I shared many of our family’s most favorite recipes.  Back then I took horrible photos and usually only had one or maybe two really bad photos per post.  I have been gradually working my way through those old posts and adding new photos but there are still many that need [Continue Reading…]
