I got this zucchini salsa recipe from a friend from work, so thanks Carmen! This is an awesome treat late summer, and it lasts and lasts because it is canned. Generally, I make this in two batches at a time and yields around 4 large mason jars per batch. It goes quickly so I like to have some after the first week.
I love to give this to special friends at Christmas time too. So if you get this from me at this time, know that I really care!
Be aware before you start making this recipe that this is a two day recipe, where you will let the vegetables sit overnight, then drain in the morning and add the rest of the ingredients in the morning. Alternatively, you could start early in the morning, let it sit for the day, and then complete in the evening. Continue reading “Zucchini Salsa Recipe – Thanks Carmen!”

- 2 cups brown sugar
- ½ cup corn syrup

This cheesecake is so mouthwatering, with chocolate fulfillment and peanut butter makes for a combination of deliciousness…..Give it a try and let me know what you think.
The only bad part of making this is that it is supposed to sit for 4 hours in the freezer before serving it. Thank goodness there are bowls and spoons to lick! It seems complicated the first couple of times making it, but hopefully my directions and pictures will help you make sense of it.
- 1 cup oreo crumbs
- 3 Tbsp margarine
- 1 package cream cheese
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups cool whip
- 2 squares semi-sweet baker’s chocolate (2 oz)

I was at a New Year’s party last year and they were serving baileys ice cream shooters and I just had to have the recipe. When I make it, I don’t have them as shooters though….I’m kinda bad. I make it and put it into a container so after it freezes I can scoop it into an ice cream cup and enjoy like nobody’s business!
I’m sure there’s a moderation factor here, but it’s sooo delicious, I don’t think it matters. Maybe just don’t drive if you eat the whole container.
Just a quick warning…this is highly addictive and also probably shouldn’t be shared with the little ones!
- 1 vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup baileys
- 1/4 cup vodka
- 1/2 container cool whip
- 1/2 cup oreo crumbs

I got this scrambled egg recipe from a grandmother, who lived her life trying to make her resources go a bit further, and last a bit longer. Even if it’s as simple as adding flour to your basic scrambled eggs to feed a few extra mouths. Well this recipe does just that, and I hope you try this mennonite scrambled egg recipe with your family and enjoy it. Continue reading “Mennonite Scrambled Eggs”
This salad is great for family get togethers and needs to be made one day in advance. The marshmallows and fruit are a favourable, tangy combination of deliciousness (my opinion, not my husband’s!) This recipe is so easy and quick to make, you will not be disappointed (unless you are my husband). A big thank you to my sister-in-law Natasha for this one!
- “smaller” bag of mini marshmallows
- 1 small can of mandarin orange segments
- 1 small can of pineapple tidbits
- 2 cups sour cream (sounds healthy now!)
