I have decided to resurrect this little blog. It's been idle for so long, I sort of feel like I'm starting from scratch with it. :0) So here goes. I'm 37 years old, a stay at home wife and mom. I have two teens that I homeschool (and currently trying to ttc #3! Yes, I know that means we'll be starting all over. :0) My husband works in IT and works from his home office 4 out of 5 days. So, this means that on almost every single day for every single meal...I have got a house full of hungry people to feed! I will also admit that my family snacks a lot more than (or at least what I think is a lot more than) your average family. My husband has a high metabolism and is constantly hungry. That is not an exaggeration. Throw two teens and a few of their friends into the mix and there is never a day that I don't spend a good portion of it in my kitchen. So I'm going to share what's cooking in my kitchen on this blog. Some days I may ramble about my life in general and other days I might slap up a recipe and call it good. :0)
So on that note, here we go!!
Buttermilk Salad (pictured above)
This is an old (old, old, old) recipe that has been in my family for decades. I much prefer old recipes. I trust them. Their reputation proceeds them. They are like old friends.
1 large can of crushed pineapple
1 small box of strawberry jello
2 C. buttermilk
1 C. chopped pecans
8 oz. tub of Cool Whip
Drain about three quarters of the liquid from the pineapple. Pour the pineapple and the rest of the liquid into a small pot and warm up. Mix in the jello. Now stir in the buttermilk. Refrigerate overnight. Gently fold the cool whip and pecans into the mixture and place in your serving bowl.
