I posted this tart lemonade and these happy cookies about this time last year…..thought I’d throw them out there again. The other recipes are newbies to me. I’ve tried one and NOT YET tried one…but have plans to! Of course….the best treat this time of year around here, is simply cutting open a big old watermelon and sprinkling on a bit of salt. Oh yes…..On my list for the day. 😉
I made this last night and hubby’s words, “This is the best drink I have ever had.” Of course, it WAS 102 degrees out so he was hot and thirsty. Still….see what you think:
In a blender mix:
1 can frozen lemonade or limeade
Desired amount of cleaned ripe strawberries. (I added about 8-10)
1 cup water
Blend, Pour, DRINK! This is very refreshing and will cool you down. Design it to your preference by adding more or less water. This lemonade is tart. If you prefer sweet, you might add sprite or sugar or a bit of honey. Also tasty with a touch of ginger ale or your favorite “spirits”.I threw what was left in the freezer for slushies later!
Cake Mix Cookies
1 boxed white cake mix (I used confetti white, but I think you could use ANY flavor)
3-5 TB cooking oil (about ~ I do not “measure”)
1 can prepared icing (I used plain old “WHITE”, cause I love wedding cake icing!)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the first three ingredients. If it seems too dry, you might add a smidge of water. But not much! Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop. Do not smash down. Bake for about 6-7 minutes or until top and edges brown a little. Let cool for 1-2 minutes on cooling rack. Remove and ice while still warm. Add sprinkles (if desired) immediately. Makes about 20 moist cookies.
Frozen Pineapple Yum
A package of frozen pineapple (or cut a fresh one into chunks and freeze)
A cup (or so…I don’t measure!!) of almond milk (but I didn’t have any, so I used organic fat-free milk and added vanilla)
A few tablespoons of honey to sweeten.
Blend all together until it looks “whipped”. Ta-dah!!! Very refreshing!
So easy, so good. And NO….you do not have to add coconut rum. (No photo….we devoured before I remembered to take a pic!)
Ice Cream Cake
2 cups any flavor ice cream (not non fat or low fat…good old regular ice cream). 1 1/2 cups self rising flour. Stir til moistened. Pour into greased & floured loaf pan. Bake 350 F for 40-45 minutes. Anxious to give this one a try! If you try it first….let me know!
Happy Weekend! Be nice to people ♥
