Care Packages-what to send and how to pack them

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 […]

50 Christmas Candy Recipes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Well…okay, not exactly. I mean it is a wonderful time of the year if you’re like me and adore fall, but it’s not Christmas yet, technically. But is that minor technicality stopping us from thinking about Christmas cookies and confections galore? Nope, you bet it’s not. The […]

Candy Cane Hearts

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 […]

Strawberry Milk for Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day is almost here. We don’t do much around here, a little chocolate is sure to make an appearance but my kids are at that age where they’re too old for all the kiddie stuff but too young to be into the romance side of the holiday (thankfully.)  No boyfriends or girlfriends to worry about yet. […]

Easter Meringues

My favorite thing to make with extra egg whites is Meringue cookies or Forgotten cookies. And since I made 3 batches of Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls in the past week, I had leftover egg whites. We love these cookies. Low in fat, you can control the sugar, add flavors, color them, shape them or just drop […]

Gingerbread Men Cookies

A Christmas Classic. These Gingerbread men cookies are a soft cookie with a mild ginger flavor. From an old family recipe. What’s Christmas without a gingerbread man?
