Kenny had to have a little chocolate syrup..of course!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! All the kids came over and we had great grandson’s first Easter Egg Hunt. Thank God for large porches as the yard was very wet and soggy from all the rain we’d been having. He caught on very quickly with just a small amount of prodding from the peanut galley. His mom decided to use plastic eggs in lieu of the real things due to his age and the fact that at his age, throwing things gets a little bit out of hand at times (no pun intended).

Dinner was mostly done by daughter with a little help from the kids giving Gram a break (really didn’t know what to do with myself, ha ha)! I did manage to make a homemade carrot cake the day before and homemade corn bread to accompany the delicious ham that graced our table and our bellies.

Along with the cake, Kenny made up this ice cream that I am sharing with you today. Got the idea from an old magazine that I had laying around and although the flavor was fantastic, the ice cream came out EXTREMELY hard after the cooking and freezing process. We don’t know if it was due to a fault in the recipe or an error on the dessert maker!! But all in all, it was enjoyed by all who dared to try it………..

French Vanilla Cake Mix Ice Cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 pkg French Vanilla cake mix for a single layer (I used a regular package and made the other half into cup cakes which might have a a factor in the ice cream coming out so hard when it froze, I could have gotten a little too much of the cake mix by accident!)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbls vanilla
  1. Mix together the milk, cake mix and sugar in a sauce pan and heat on low just til mixture bubbles, stirring constantly.
  2. Place in a heat resistant bowl and whisk briskly to combine well.
  3. Cover and let sit for 1 hour.
  4. Stir in the remaining ingredients, cover again and refrigerate over night.
  5. Pour mixture into your ice cream freezer and freeze according to manufacture's instructions (ours did not harden in the machine like normal ice cream, maybe that was part of the problem).
  6. Transfer to a freezer container and freeze overnight to blend flavors.

Hope you all enjoy…………

Gotta have varieties!

Gotta have varieties!

Are you ready for this one? I know I’ve been elusive again on putting in goodies to eat, but when you have around 50 boxes of Christmas decorations to put up and decorate around your house, damn, it takes time (especially at our age, HA HA or should I say HO HO)! But with the homestead almost ready for the holiday, now it’s time to bake all the holiday goodies to go along with it and with that I give you this one!

I finally got permission from my nephew to put this recipe on our site and no, I have not tried it ,although all his neighbors come a caroling to get his special drink when they have their community Christmas celebration, and if you’re not worried about a hangover this one is for you. Trust me, sip only or you will feel the wrath from HELL and BACK!

I am writing this just as he wrote it to me so any screw-ups are his fault not mine, another chuckle…………… Also not putting this in the recipe format as there are so many liquors, I wouldn’t know where to begin,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

1 dozen eggs
1-1/4 cups sugar
1-1/2 quarts heavy cream
1 quart milk
4 tbsp vanilla extract
Dash of each, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger
Small dash of salt3 scoops of Eggnog Ice Cream
Separate egg yokes and whites
1 very large bowl (it better be HUGE), mix yolks
Mix in 1/2 cup of sugar slowly
Mix in 1 quart of heavy cream
In medium bowl, mix (beat) egg whites with 1/2 cup of the sugar, set aside
In another small/medium bowl mix, 1 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, 1 cup Captain Morgan Tattoo Rum, 1/2 cup French vanilla vodka, 1/3 cup gin (oh hell, this one’s up to you, 1/3 cup Triple Sec, 1/3 cup Black Velvet, 1/3 cup Kahlua French Vanilla, 1/4 cup peach liquor, 1/4 cup coffee liquor, 1/2 cup clear rum, 1/4 cup coconut rum, 1 shot of Jack Daniels for luck (are you supposed to drink this while you’re making it?)
Mix all liquors with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tbsp of vanilla, set aside.
Back to egg yolks, mix in 1-2 scoops of ice cream and add 2 tbsp of vanilla, add spices.
Slowly mix in the alcohol and then add 1/2 quart of the heavy cream with 1 scoop of the ice cream.
After that’s mixed, slowly blend in egg whites; pour into bottles to chill and enjoy!

He recommends to sip not gulp, REALLY?
Then he says, “If gulped you will need to take 2-3 aspirins and water.
Call in mourning! I think he meant call in, if you can, in morning or maybe not,,,,,,,,,,,,ha ha!

Well there you have it, something I have wanted to share for a very long time although we, personally have never had the guts to try this ourselves!!!!! Hope to see ya soon, right here and before Christmas!


Or the alcoholic content…and the hell with the calorie count…:-)
