I grew up eating homemade Taffy. My great grandmother Harriet was a pro. She had a amazing way of “testing” the candy to see if it was ready to pull off the heat. Grandma would simply dip and swirl two fingers in that hot, boiling syrup!

I’ve really need to QUIT buying large bundles of bananas. why? This is why! My usual routine: Buy groceries – bananas included. Load them in Escalade. Shut back door. Open back door . . . grab a green banana. (Not so green that it won’t peel!) Eat banana while heading home. Unload groceries – put […]
I like Peanut Butter . . . in Cookies, Candy and licking it off a spoon. I don’t like Peanut Butter . . . on bread. Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies are even better! I like this recipe. It’s a cross between chewy & shortbread. Did you know according to the National Peanut Board that . […]
Summer. I have a love, hate relationship with you. You trick us with sunshine but crowd our days with busy . . . ness. Hah. I snuck cookies in today! So there! I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for quite a while now. This sweet recipe comes from King Arthur Flour, and what […]
It’s Mother’s Day Sunday. Whoopee! My Mom and I think . . . it’s quite over-rated. The two of us are quite alike. We aren’t the flower type, or the jewelry type, unless it a big fat diamond. I think I’d rather have a new pair of jeans or shoes or money honey! Laughing. Not […]
Of all the posts I’ve ever done . . . I’m most excited about this one. My search for the PERFECT pizza crust is now over! I’m serious now. I’ve probably tried at least 100 different pizza crust recipes. Some were good . . . some were bad . . . but none were worth […]
I have a problem. I buy too many Cookbooks & print off far too many recipes. I really don’t collect anything else but my Cookbook shelves have expanded . . . to non designated Cookbook shelves! One of my favorite books is Down Home with the Neely’s, and I’ve made many of their recipes. They’re […]
Sometimes the simple things are the best things. For example . . . I love Marshmallow Rice Crispy Treats. My kids love the Peanut Butter Variety. Both are really simple but delicious. A long long time ago, I posted the Scotcharoo recipe, but decided I would shake things up today. I figured . . . […]
O.k. . . . just wondering, How many of you have read . . . Shades of Grey? I haven’t. Honestly . . . I haven’t. This blog can’t compete with that! Trust me, this will be much sweeter. I think . . . you should make this Caramel Marshmallow popcorn BEFORE you read those […]
This is one of my favorite meals. It’s restaurant quality good. It’s also super easy to make. It doesn’t take a good picture though! Maybe you should see it before it’s all dished up! You will just have to take my word on this one. One of my MOST popular posts is the Creamy […]
Today . . . I’m going to show you how to make a very complicated, time consuming cookie. You might even mistake it for a Candy Bar. I’m just pulling your leg. It’s square – and tastes like an Almond Joy – and it’s the easiest recipe you will ever make! I think these Macaroons […]
It’s Easter! Bright Colors and sweets are popping up everywhere. I’ve tried not to buy too many tempting treats. Candy melts were calling my name though . . . so I made a few Oreo Truffle Pops. Easy as 1-2-3. The hard part is staying out of them. All you need is 3 ingredients and […]
Did you know that the word Summer . . . actually means: Slow Cook or grill? Not really, but it should. I’ve been trying out some new slow cooker recipes, and this one is a winner. It’s about as simple as it gets. I served it over a bed of brown rice. We even wanted […]
