Apple Cider Vinegar Keeps the Doctor Away...

Do you ever wonder where mamas got medicines for sick babies before Walgreens and CVS stores existed?


Home remedies helped cure the achiest of pains...

One tried and true home remedy for numerous issues is apple cider vinegar & honey.

I was at the farmer's market the other day, and noticed a sign above the local honey that read, "1 tablespoon honey, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and eight ounces of water a day", then, it went on to list an array of benefits...

Mexican Cornbread Skillet Casserole



Cheese.  If you put cheese on a rock, my family will eat it.

Lucky for them, this meal isn't cheese on a rock... it's fabulous all the way through!
ha!  Cheese on a rock.

This is an ooey gooey cornbread that really has more of a cornbread stuffing consistency.  It's very moist, and so easy to make.

To make this dish you'll need:

Chunky Chocolate Covered Strawberry Trifle

Some girls love jewelry, others love perfume... 
flowers.... clothes.... 
those may make you swoon...

I love chocolate. covered. strawberries.

Oh, dear!  Now, don't get me wrong... I've never been opposed to a dozen roses or my favorite perfume, I'm just saying, chocolate covered strawberries are a hit, every time.  Ha!
 
So, this afternoon, when I peaked into the fridge, and noticed the strawberries on the shelf.... and the cream cheese... and the whipping cream... 
It hit me like a ton of bricks...
 ...you can thank me later!
 
It's so easy to make!

Fudgy, Super Moist Brownies

Happy Birthday, America!

 Are you heading out to a fourth of July picnic?
These brownies would be a wonderful treat to take along!

 

They are super moist, and remind me of fudge, because of the moist center, and crunchy outside.... the best of both!

Good Days With The One's We Love...

It's been a wonderful two days... I've spent them in my mama's kitchen...

We've canned and had girl talk over a couple way too many cups of coffee.
((Wait.. is there really such a thing as too many cups of coffee?!))

 

I also brought my camera, and had to take some photos of my mom's gorgeous flowers.
My parents are talented gardeners!

Farmer's Market & Garden Pickin'

It's been a good Saturday...
We went to the Farmer's Market in town... a lady was there selling fresh, sourdough bread...

YUM!
They were also selling watermelons....
Can't say no to a watermelon at a farmer's market...

just. can't. do. it.



I've got a lot of tomatoes to put up this week..

((a certain little girl took one from the side, and took a bite out of it... do you see it?  Ha!  I didn't even notice it until I downloaded the pictures... little stinker!))



I'm cooking the green tomatoes tonight, and putting the okra and squash in the freezer...



Our flower garden is blooming away... makes my heart smile..

How has your Saturday been?

I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
