This was posted Sunday, September 8, 2013 7:58 a.m. EDT

I just wanted to take out time today to wish every one a very Happy Thanksgiving and holiday season yet to come. I also want to know how Labor Day has come and gone so fast.

This weekend I begin my Thanksgiving preparations I am going though the pantry and checking for the following items:

Salt & Pepper
Poultry Seasoning

Wax Paper
Parchment Paper
Aluminum Foil
Saran Wrap
Corn Oil
Olive Oil
Vegetable Oil
Peanut Oil

I will come back each week and update my blog so you can start right now and have a stress free Thanksgiving.

I have had friends and relatives staying with me the past three weeks. The last one went home yesterday. I made a big pot of coffee to go with my Grandma's coffee cake and taking it easy today and reading the Sunday newspaper.

Friday August 30, 2013 5:44 p.m. I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy Labor Day Weekend and holiday season yet to come.

I also have one new to me holiday treat to share with all of you.

1. My Grandma's Coffee Cake

I am sure some of you know of My Grandma's from QVC or your local markets. I just found this cake and its the best. Log onto MY Grandmas and find a store in your hometown.

2. We Take The Cake Key Lime Bundt Cake

This cake was featured as one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2003.

3. The Christmas Palace has Christmas every day of the year I love this store.

I love living here in South FL as all three of these places are in my back yard.

This is Labor Day Weekend 2014 now it's time to start my Thanksgiving preparations. This weekend I will be checking out the pantry and re-seasoning my cast iron skillet getting it ready for Thanksgiving.

Happy 4th of July 2013

Posted 07-04-2013 at 07:15 AM by bigbearfla58
Updated 08-09-2013 at 03:22 PM by bigbearfla58 (Ice Cream for Summer 2013)





I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy 4th of July.

Today in honor of my Great Grandmother's 148th birthday I am once again making her vanilla boiled custard ice cream from scratch that is always churned by hand.

I told my family I was going to post the recipe and promptly was vetoed. They will not allow me to share this treasured family secret. I will have to put the recipe back into the vault until next year at this time.

I have decided I am going to share the recipe just not the tips and techniques to make perfect ice cream you'll have to figure that out.

1-Quart of Great Value Whole Milk
1- cup of Organic Valley heavy whipping cream
4 Jumbo Eggs at room temperature
5 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt add this to milk mixture
Morton's Ice Cream Salt –1 box

Good luck!!
