Whenever I am asked what is my favorite dessert, the answer is always “mud pie”. There is something about the oreo cookie crust, coffee ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream that gets me every time. One thing you might not know about me is that I haven’t had a dessert in six years. (That’s another story for a later date.) So when I tell you that my Homemade Coffee Ice Cream Mud Pie Sundaes are good, they were tasted by two very tough critics … my husband and my youngest son.
A few years ago I bought some mason jars and decided to try canning. I was in pursuit of finding the best canning recipes and was thrilled with my results. I have made just about every flavor of jam and jelly and lovemaking apple butter. My most recent canning project was making Orange and Red Pepper Jam and Cranberry Pepper Jam.
I love to cook. In fact, I have decided to block off every Wednesday for cooking. And I mean all day. Earlier this year I tried a new recipe called The Best Coconut Cake Ever. I honestly think it really was the best and I can’t wait to share it with you!
I can’t believe I have never made homemade marshmallows until today. I made these toasted coconut homemade marshmallow s’mores and they are so delicious. In fact, the marshmallows are so easy to make and taste so much better than the store-bought kind, that you have to try this recipe! This recipe is for vanilla marshmallows but please know that you can make peppermint, lemon, strawberry, Nutella, and chocolate marshmallows … to name a few. The flavors are endless!
I love cooking in the summertime and any peach recipe is my favorite! My brother and his family, who live in Georgia, were guests for dinner at our home a while back. Georgia is very well known for its peaches, so I decided to cook a dinner party featuring some peach recipes! Peaches have always been my favorite and what is better than a dinner featuring the name of every street in Atlanta? Haha.
Summer and popsicles are the best. Because one doesn’t happen without the other, right? I remember the days of chasing the ice cream truck down our street and handing over my hard earned babysitting money for my favorite popsicle.
