Pineapple Sherbert

Do you love frozen desserts as much as we do?  We could eat them every day, regardless the temperature.  A couple like chocolate, another vanilla and most of us love frozen fruit!  This sherbert is just what we have been wanting.  Frozen, fruity and smooth.  YUM!  Adapt this to suit your taste.  Enjoy!

Pineapple Popsicles

These are the best and easiest popsicles to make.  One ingredient and you have a healthy frozen treat for your children and yourself.  Other fruit would also work well.

Lime Pineapple Jello Salad

My precious Mama would always make this congealed salad, especially holidays.  We all loved it and now my family does, too.  The only difference?  I don't wait for special occasions to make and enjoy. 

I noticed this looked a little thin and commented about it to hubby.  He told it may be because he ate about half of it, still in the bowl, while I was getting the boys ready for bed!  ~smile~

Pineapple Blueberry Popsicles

We love popsicles!  It doesn't matter if it is summer or winter, if they are here, we shall eat them!  I just found this one in the back of the freezer and I am so happy I did.  One of the twins and I had a yummy suprise treat.    Enjoy these frozen treats of summer anytime of the year.  They will make you smile...I promise.  Love and hugs!

Pineapple Upside Down Cup Cake

A couple of days ago I saw an article in our newspaper about cooking in a cup.  Did you happen to see that?  I was intrigued by this as my family is getting to be so very Picky lately!!  This will be perfect for me.  I can cook what is wanted.  Really wanted.  It's just that easy!  No waste when everyone wants something different.  Here is one of the "cup cakes" I have made.  Play around and make up your own.  I'd love for you to share on my page.  Have fun and enjoy!

Pineapple Bacon Jam

Spray cookie sheet
Cut tortillas in to 6 wedges

My Precious Great Aunt Louise’s Rice Pudding <3 and my Fruity Rice Pudding

My parents and Grandparents have all passed away.  I don’t talk with my sisters…..often.  I have cousins I chat with through email and facebook.  I moved away from home at the age of 20 and with it I left behind the opportunity to gather the Treasured Recipes of My Family.  I have asked others to share theirs with me.  Through this I have reconnected with my very Sweet Cousin, Linda.  She is so special to me and is always there when I need her.  She graciously shared a few Treasured Recipes with me of our family.  (Thank you so much Linda…Love You!) This Rice Pudding Recipe was her Precious Mama’s.  I know you will enjoy it! 


My Great Aunt Louise.  I remember when I was very young…She lived nearby.  We didn’t have any other family that lived in the state, it was such a Blessing to share time with her and have family closeby.   When My Precious Mama was very sick, and in the hospital,  Aunt Louise came to stay with us…My Darlin’ Daddy, my sisters and I.  She helped take care of our family and our home.  She was a rock for us and I am forever grateful for her and the memories I have of her.  I truly Love and Miss her…..<3


Great Aunt Louise’s Rice Pudding

Ingredients
2 cups cooked rice
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup raisins…optional

Directions
Beat Eggs. Stir in sugar. Add other ingredients. Stir. Spray oven proof
casserole dish with Pam. Pour mixture into dish. Set dish in pan of hot
water and bake at 300 degrees for 90 minutes. After 30 minutes of cooking
insert spoon at edge of pudding and stir from the bottom to distribute
rice and raisins.  

Fruity Rice Pudding

I changed mine a little by adding 1/4 to 1/2 pureed banana 
I used a whole banana, pictured above and it was great, but it was a little too much
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 1/2 cups diced apples
increased cinnamon to 3/4 teaspoon
decreased vanilla to 1 teaspoon
Place in a crock pot and cooked on low for 3-5 hours, depending on your crock pot.  
Stirring occasionally once it starts to thicken.

Tropical Pineapple Pops In A Cup

We had fun this morning making Tropical Pineapple Pops In A Cup.  The only thing was the wait! 

Tropical Pineapple Pops In A Cup

1 large can of Crushed Pineapple, drained saving juice
1 box of Island Pineapple Jello
2/3 cup of Sweetened Koolaid Tropical Punch Drink Mix
Enough water to make two cups added to pineapple juice
3 or 5 oz paper cups
craft sticks
foil

Drain pineapple saving juice.  Add enough water to make 2 cups and boil.  Disolve jello with liquid.

Chop 2/3 can of the pineapple in your mini chopper or food processor to make it fine.  (I only had chunks so had to process mine..maybe the crushed will be small enough)  Mix well with koolaid. 

Add jello to koolaid and pineapple.  Mix well.  Ladel into small cups.  Place a small square of foil on top with a small slit in the middle.  Insert craft stick and WAIT!  Kids really loved this and they were fun to make. 

*NOTE*  Very sweet for me but My Boys loved them.  Maybe use an unsweetened jello next time will cut down on the sugar but not enough to make a difference.
