Mud Pies (my turn)

Browsing on the Pioneer Woman Blog the other day saw this post and ohhhhh I remember those! Except she makes them a little different then we made ours and the flowers where a completely new concept:)

I made a bunch for the kids last night, they loved them! Here is one I managed to grab a picture of before they where gobbled up.

 I layered it, cookie/icecream/worms/cookie/pudding/worms/cookie, with a few extra worms sticking out just because worms are delicious and cute:) I think the flowers really make this treat super adorable.

I love it when I find inspiration online! Thanks Ree!



Word of advise

Evil onions that make people cry deserve time out in the freezer. And maybe a few choice swear words.

Never rub your eyes after chopping a jalapeno pepper. Please don’t EVER do this. (A few more swear words are also acceptable if you decide to try it out anyway..)

Cheese is most delicious melted on tortilla chips and then dipped in home-made Pico de Gallo.


Write this down, you don’t get this kind of excellent advice everyday.

Bread, Glorious Bread!

I love to cook, I love to bake. I cannot cook or bake but oh how I love to try:)

I have found the most divine bread recipe in the whole world and I mean the whole world. Here is the Link. I have made several loafs and they all have come out perfect, it is a foolproof recipe! This bread is quick and easy to mix up, it has a pleasant texture and is not to heavy or too light, it is perfect for sandwiches, toast, french-toast, soups, with jam or all by its lonesome. This bread is diplomatic!

The following is a scone recipe that I got from Sis. A, its the best one I have been able to find as I have been searching and trying different recipes for several years. These are quite good and very easy to make, A couple of notes, I doubled this recipe as these tend to get eaten pretty quick, the refrigeration is not necessary but I find it makes the dough easier to handle, I used a pizza cutter to slice and the lid to my vanilla jar to cut the holes, holes are not needed either but it makes them easier to turn over as they tend to get top heavy without. I also had a problem getting the oil at just the right temp, I still don’t have it perfect but I am getting there, these were cooked in a shallow cast iron skillet at medium on my electric stove, I did notice Cindi had better luck with getting the right temp, she uses gas, but then that might not have anything to do with it as Cindi IS a better cook then I am.
