Earth Day

How are you observing Earth Day 2017?  Are you aware of steps to take daily to care for the environ-ment?  Do you "reduce, reuse, recycle?"  This is an excellent book with good ideas to get started.

Let me know one thing you do to help the life of our planet.

Do you remember these lovelies from past times?  Seems like Apricot is missing a sock.  Are you able to help her find it?  Blueberry Muffin and Strawberry Shortcake are all together.  We've an Apple Dumpling, too, but she's missing all her attire.:-( 

The past post (Tuesday) was a picture of a card from a dear friend.  It was created by Rowpress, and Rosemary Macuga is responsible for the image.

It was Pi Day....

This has been a busy week!! Tuesday was Pi Day, so it was time to bake a pie!  This is cherry, the next to favorite pie around here.  (Apple is the all time favorite in this house.)

I was in a hurry to take a picture and didn't wait until this slice was topped with ice cream.😀

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Still cooking....

Although I am not present on Blogger as I once was, I am still busy with cooking.

This was a Christmas gift from a very special friend, so it just made sense that I try something from it.

Saucepan Brownies!! I didn't even have to turn on the oven!

2 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (this is more than a 12-oz. bag, so be sure to have more on  
1 cup evaporated milk (or half-and-half cream)
3 cups finely crushed vanilla wafers (about 96 - 11 ounce box)
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 t. salt

Additional evaporated milk - 2 teaspoons

Heat chocolate chips and first amount of evaporated milk in saucepan on medium-low, stirring often,  until chocolate is almost melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir until smooth.  Reserve 1/2 cup in small bowl.

Add next 5 ingredients to saucepan.  Mix well.  Press firmly into greased 9 x 9 inch pan.

Stir second amount of evaporated milk into reserved chocolate mixture.  Spread evenly over brownie layer.  Chill  until set. Cuts into 36 squares.

Warning!!  These are addictive!!
