Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies

My boys love cookies and one in particular, loves lemon.  As a special treat for a school snack, I made these Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies for him.  I made Molasses Cookies for my other two.

Biscuit Donuts

I remember as a child…watching my precious Mama as she stood at the stove cooking these sweet biscuit donuts.  A paper towel lined plate and brown lunch bags were close at hand.  The ingredients inside held different varieties of sweetness.  Powdered sugar, my favorite,  cinnamon and sugar, and plain ole granulated sugar could be found inside.

Thursday's Treasures Week 100 Amazon $60 GC Giveaway

Woo Hoo!!!! I am so excited! This is the 100th party of Thursday’s Treasures! To celebrate .. Joan, Christie and I are having a $60.00 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway! How fun is that?


Lemon Raspberry Cobbler

Making this cobbler has been on my mind a lot lately and I just needed to make it.   I bought fresh blueberries and tucked them in the back of the refrigerator.  However, when I went to gather the ingredients, the blueberries mysteriously disappeared and were nowhere to be found.  Well, maybe not so much a mystery.  I pretty much know where they went.  One of my twins just loves them and I'm pretty certain he is behind the missing blueberries.  Since I no longer had the main ingredient for my cobbler, I had to find a substitute.   What to use?  I rummaged through the freezer and found a bag of raspberries.  Yes, they would do.  How did it turn out?  Perfect!  Crackles of sugar top a melt in your mouth lemon cake and saucy sweet, and a bit tart, raspberries underneath!  Yes, I am so glad my son ate the blueberries!

You love saving money, don’t you?  Yes, I knew you would.  I love to clip coupons and this .50 Philadelphia Cream Cheese coupon  ( for a 2 pack no less!) is a fantastic one to use at Walmart.   The two pack of philly cream cheese is a great price already and even more so when paired with the coupon.  Click, print and save.  And then, do it all over again.  Yes, you can print two coupons!  I did!  To view the digital coupon, you must be within a 5 mile radius of Walmart.  Not a big deal, you were going shopping anyway, right?

Thursday's Treasures Week 98



Today, would have been my precious Mama's birthday.  She's been gone 21+  long, empty, lonely years.
A girl just needs her Mama. My boys needed to know their sweet Grandma.
Happy Birthday, Mama!  I treasure the memories locked deep inside my heart.

Let's start the party.
Come on in and join this week's ...


Soft Pretzel Buns

These have got to be the best buns I have eaten!  They are sweet, salty and oh, so, good!  I grabbed one hot, right out of the oven and yes, this is definitely a keeper!  I could have all be devoured right then and there.  Being the a sweet Mama, I saved some for my boys and hubby.

Devil's Food Mayonnaise Cake

I’ve heard about mayonnaise cakes for the longest of times.   Certainly they have been around forever.  Your precious mama and grandma, most likely, made them for you.  I’m pretty certain mine did even though I despise mayo or miracle whip.   If you have been around here, you know the story, how my mean sister made me eat a heaping tablespoon of the white stuff.  ~shivers thinking about it~  This is the only way I will ever eat it.  Ever! You will not notice it at all, I promise.  It makes the cake very moist, even when using a cake mix.  Go ahead and try it, you will be glad you did.  I will be making one from scratch soon and look forward to sharing it, along with two other mayonnaise cakes I made this past week.  Yes, my boys really love them.  They don't know what the secret ingredient is, I'm not certain I'm going to tell them, either.  ;)

Broccoli Tater Tot Casserole

Tater tot casserole has been around for a long time, hasn't it?   It is in old cookbooks, magazines revamp it once in awhile and I even remember seeing it on the show with all the children that start with a J.  I have to say, I admire Michelle.  There is absolutely no way I could have 19 children and keep my wits about me.  Cooking,, cleaning, homeschooling, church and who know what else she does. Nope. There is No. Way.   Any who, back to the tater tot casserole.

Cheesecake Ice Cream

I really enjoy making different ice cream recipes for my boys.  Some I write down, others do not.  Getting lost in the memory of an aging, busy Mama.  And, although I try to replicate them, they are not always the same.  This recipe is definitely one that deserved to be written down.  You can use this as a base to build upon.  Add your favorite topping swirled inside.  Flavor it chocolate, raspberry or peanut butter...there is no end to the awesomeness that can be make with this recipe.  The ice cream seemed to melt slower than regular ice cream.  When allowed to get hard in the freezer, I was able to make curls and form this cup to nestle Blueberry Compote inside.

Cornmeal Crescent Rolls

Cornmeal and crescent rolls!  Uh-huh.   These turned out just as I thought they would.  A soft crescent like roll with the Southern touch of cornmeal.  Yessiree, I think you are going to like these!

Chinese Slaw

I have never liked slaw.  It's always had that blick taste to it.  My sweet Mama would make it and I would do everything I could to get around eatin' it.  It just wasn't good, anyway it was made.  

With grilled chicken on the menu for today, I decided to give slaw another try.  I found an old recipe for Chinese Slaw and made it yesterday.   I liked it!  It did turn out to be on the sweet side,  perhaps that is why. I do not mind eating this slaw.  ;)   I put it in the back of the refrigerator to save for today.  When I went to take it out, half of it was gone.   I didn't see the point in adding the toasted noodles or almonds now, since hubby ate nearly all of it.  I suppose he likes it, too!   :)

Butterscotch Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I started out with good intentions of making biscuits and somehow, along the way, I made Butterscotch Cookies!  They were great as they were but I know my boys and they are not fond of butterscotch.  However, I can put dark chocolate chips in anything and they will gobble it up.  I think I’ll try them in cornbread just to see if my theory is true .  I'll let you know.  ;)   Eat these as they are or add oats, nuts, dried fruit, cinnamon sugar and/or dark chocolate.  Just make them and get raves about making the best cookies ever!  One of my twins told me,  "Hey Mom, they didn't even need milk!"  My oldest said to me, “When I have children, I’ll bring them over at Christmas to eat the best Grandma cookies!”  ~heart warm and subtle smiles~  That’s why I write Recipes For My Boys, so they will have their favorites … forever.

Baked Potato Chip Crusted Onion Rings

Potato chips and onions rings meet bringing happiness all around. ~smile~  Try different flavored potato chips for unique onion rings!  Vinegar and salt.  Barbeque.  Sour Cream and Onion. Cheddar.  Chipolte.  Ranch.  The possibilities of flavored onion rings are endless!  Which flavor will you try?




Baked Potato Chip Crusted Onion Rings
Ingredients

2 medium to large onions, sliced thin and separated into rings
1 cup milk
1 egg
10 to 15 oz. bag potato chips, try different flavors, crushed
1/2 to 1 cup cake flour
seasoning, if desired

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Crush potato chips in processor or put in a bag and crush with hands.  Put in a bowl, bag or on a plate.  Carefully, slice onions into thin slices, separate into rings and put aside.  A mandolin works great for uniform cuts.   In another bowl, beat egg into milk.  Put cake flour in a bowl, bag or on a plate.  Make room on counter and line up: cake flour, milk and egg mixture, crushed potato chips, and greased cookie sheets.  Dip onion rings in cake flour.  Shake off excess and put in milk and egg mixture. Take rings out with fork, shake excess milk mixture off and put in potato chip crumbs a few at a time, pressing, or shaking bag, to coat. Onion rings may not be completely covered.  Put on greased cookie sheets.  Bake 10 to 15 minutes until crisp and golden.  Plate and serve.  Enjoy!
