It’s the time of year when we send care packages to loved ones. This care package went all the way to Afghanistan. To my son-in-law. Since I’d never shipped overseas before and according to the post office it would take 5-10 days for it to arrive, I had to choose items I knew could stand the […]

Ice Cream Sundaes in a Jar

These are so fun to eat. And if you’re having….say…a birthday party at your house, it’s nice to have the ice cream already handled. I hate scooping up ice cream and plopping it on to the plate next to the cake for parties. The ice cream is too hard or if you’ve let it soften […]
