Snow Ice Cream

Right after a recent snow storm, a friend of mine posted on Facebook that she had made snow ice cream.  How fun!  I didn’t even know this was possible!  With all the recent snow and sub zero temperatures, school had been cancelled beyond the holiday break and my 9 year old son Thompson was getting […]

Meringue Cookies

Meringue cookies are such a special treat for me.  Not only are they special, they are pretty darned versatile.   Some meringues are crisp throughout and some have that little chew in the center.

Banana Peanut Butter Bread

Hunk a hunk of burning love for this ultra moist banana bread!  Elvis would be sure to love the generous swirls of cinnamon honey peanut butter throughout this banana bread. This recipe was actually inspired when I was trying to find something to do with the old bananas sitting on the counter.  I usually never […]
