Mock Welch’s Strawberry #IcePop Recipe

Before summer is officially over, I thought I’d share this amazing recipe with you!  When I was a kid my Mom would buy Welch’s all fruit popsicles as a special treat from time to time.  This recipe tastes JUST like them.  First bite took me back years!  A quick check in the mirror revealed it […]

Mock Cracker-Barrel Fried Apples

I’ve always loved Cracker-Barrel’s fried apples and this is the closest I’ve ever tasted to their recipe.  The recipe came from an old recipe box I bought at an estate sale. It was on a newspaper clipping, that has Dec 2000 written on it.  The clipping says the recipe was from Cathey Heddlesten.  Since it […]

Pineapple Pie

This recipe is another from an old cookbook I have.  The cookbook I obtained it from is The Cooks of Region 9 WBCCI and attributes the recipe to Flynn Faglie.  I don’t know much about this cookbook, except that it came from Iowa.  It was gifted to my by my grandmother, but my Mom had […]

Old Fashion Peanut Butter Cookies

I have an old recipe book from my childhood that is full of old, simple but delicious recipes.  While they aren’t necessarily new foods, they frequently remind me of my childhood.  This particular recipe book sat for years on my Mom’s bookshelf.  When I moved out, I went back home and gave it freedom from […]

Easy Cream Cheese Pound Cake

My husband can’t have dairy.  Lame, I know.  So, I made this with Tofutti Dairy Free Cream Cheese and non-dairy butter.  It turned out really well.  Of course, it will be fabulous with regular sour cream and butter also.  Oh, how I miss those days!  However you make it, enjoy it!  You’ll find it hard […]

Old Fashion Carrot Cake *Dairy-Free*

Look, we all have to eat our veggies and what better way to eat them than hidden in a cake!  LOL.  My hubby mentioned that he loved carrot cake but can no longer have it due to his lactose allergy so I decided to hook him up.  It’s bad enough that he breaks out so […]

Snowball Cookies #Recipe

For those of you who must have dairy free, we made ours with dairy free ‘butter’ and they were great.  I think they’d be fabulous with margarine, but we did ours dairy free.  😀  I’d love to hear any additions/changes you make!  These are fabulous with coffee or hot chocolate! Ingredients: 1 lb margarine 1/2 […]

Peach Mango Sorbet Recipe

We spend a lot of time in a small coastal town called Beaufort, in eastern North Carolina, which is where the inspiration for IXEOS came from. In the summer, virtually everything we eat comes from the seafood market or farmers’ stands. One of our favorite things is fresh peach mango sorbet. Here’s the recipe: PEACH MANGO SORBET Approximately […]
