Monster Cookies have always been a family favorite. This adapted recipe from Bakerella would really simplify the process. It’s on our “must try” list. ~ Jan
How easy is this. Just put the cinnamon rolls in a waffle iron, then spread with the frosting that comes in the can when they’re finished. A little maple syrup on top, maybe some fresh strawberries or blueberries, and you’ve got a great breakfast with no work!
Watch them closely, they can burn quickly once they’ve cooked!
1. Pat strawberries completely dry with paper towels.
2. Microwave caramels, 3 Tbsp. whipping cream, and 1/4 tsp. salt in a 1-qt. microwave-safe bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 3 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring at 1-minute intervals.
3. Dip each strawberry halfway into caramel mixture. Roll in nuts, and place on lightly greased wax paper. Let stand 15 minutes. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 8 hours.

Is there anything better than Hummingbird Cake in the springtime? It’s Southern Living’s most requested recipe, and a favorite of mine for years. It’s truly wonderful ~ Jan
Everything that goes around comes around. Congealed salads are the latest darling of the food world, they were always on Mother’s table in the 50’s a nd 60’s and now they’re back in a big way.
My all time favorite is Perfection Salad, made the way mother did with pineapple, carrots and cabbage in lime or lemon Jello, it’s a oldie but goodie.
Lucy’s Perfection Salad
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. lemon or lime Jello
1/4 head cabbage, chopped
2 carrots, chopped or grated
1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple
Dissolve Jello in 2 cups boiling water; stir well. Add 1 1/2 cups cold water. Add vegetables and pineapple with juice.
Put in jello mold and chill several hours.
I made not one, not two, but three really good salad dressings this morning. The Italian Vinaigrette is a new recipe, but the other two, Western and Ramona’s Poppyseed, are favorites. I’ve made Ramona’s recipe for years, there isn’t a better poppyseed dressing than hers, it’s just wonderful. And the quart jar, it’s green and it’s wonderful, but that’s for another post.
If you happen to be in the mood, these are easy peasy and so much better than bottled. Yep, they’re low-carb, but don’t let that stop you, these are excellent dressings.
The Western Dressing calls for a bit of xanthan gum to thicken it, but you can leave that out.
Here are the links, maybe you’re thinking spring and salad this sunny February day, too.
