A few weeks ago we made donuts on a snow day we had. We haven’t made donuts in years, and although it took a while, it was lots of fun. Continue reading “Donut Making”
Hello! Today I have one of my favorite cookie recipes. My brother found the original recipe in an old cookbook (see it here on Amazon) and modified it a bit.
Hello everyone! How are you doing today? 🙂
I’m going to bring back a post I wrote a long time ago in this post. If you want to see the real thing, go HERE.
Raspberry Chocolate Bars
Allison, my cousin Leisha, and I made up this recipe. It works best with fresh raspberries but frozen ones work fine. We have a big black raspberry patch and we have picked 3 gallons in 2 pickings. The first time we made smoothies. Next we made ice cream and bars. Here’s the recipe.
I hope you like it! We did!
That was short. I should have put pictures of what it looked like, don’t you think? XD Ah, well. Maybe I can make it soon and take better pictures of it. Raspberries are coming! Oh, and if you want to see the smoothies we made with the raspberries the one time, you can see my sister’s post. 🙂
Before I leave, here are some espeacially cute and funny pictures I’ve taken of Casey since my last post about her.
AWW! Casey-wacey, you are adorable. 😛
Bye for now!
Casey caught a mouse! Unfortunately, it’s just a computer mouse. XD

Wow! I just looked at my last post and it has been a whole 11 days since I did a post last.*Gulp!* Anyways, last Friday, at our homeschool co-op, we had a mini society. This is where the whole middle school makes products and sells them to the teachers, high schoolers, and some of the younger grades. My group had 5 people, one of which was Loren. So, now that you know what our mini society is, I will tell you what I made for it.
First of all I made
glow in the dark not so glow in the dark flubber slimy stuff.
I used this recipe, and I am pretty sure it would have worked, if I had used Elmer’s glue.
I also made some neat washer necklaces. A few we ( Loren and I ) painted with normal paint, (sorry, no pictures) and some I painted by marbling nail polish. (Post about that hopefully coming soon)
I also made….. BROWNIES! The boys bought those pretty quickly. ☺
Here is the recipe:
2 cups of sugar Beat these ingredients together in a bowl for one minute
1 tsp. salt at medium speed of electric mixer until light.
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup of butter
1 and 1/2 cup of flour Blend together on low speed
2/3 cup of cocoa powder
Put them in your oven at 350 Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
Voila! You have made brownies! This recipe is actually supposed to be a micorave recipe, but we made it into an oven recipe. The cookbook that I used is HERE.
Here are pictures of what others were selling.
One person in our group was selling Aloe Vera plants!
