It is basically a soft serve pineapple frozen dessert. […]

Homemade Rainbow Chip Frosting

There are some serious die hards out there that will correct you very quickly. The difference: Funfetti uses sprinkles while Rainbow chip is […]

Lemonade Syrup

Lemonade-Syrup

Whenever we go out to eat my kids order lemonade. They judge restaurants on the quality of their lemonade. LOL The fountain stuff doesn’t cut it. Chick-Fil-A gets major bonus points for their fresh squeezed lemonade. They LOVE IT! Mom’s lemonade also gets 2 thumbs up, but I don’t stand in the kitchen squeezing lemons […]
