This recipe comes from my mother-in-law, and is a family favorite. It is TOTALLY from scratch, which is kind of fun, and tastes amazing – not like the boxed artificial banana flavor.

My mom made this little gem often growing up and it is so easy to make. It’s a throw it together type dish and served cold which I love for a spring and summer dessert. This recipe calls for a graham cracker crust and making a graham cracker crust is one of my least favorite… Read More


My son came home from a Spring Break camp at a local science center yesterday with a smile on his face and a piece of paper in his hand. He had been in a 3-day class where they studied birds, and today they had gotten a treat: Peanut Butter Butterscotch Nests. He liked them so… Read More


This pasta salad recipe is very simple. It is one that we just throw things in and bring it to gatherings, and almost every time I get comments about how much people love it, and then they ask for the recipe. At this point I laugh because it is so, so easy, but I guess… Read More
