These lime cream cheese cake bars are a very refreshing dessert, and perfect to serve on St Patrick’s Day.
They are actually a remake of a recipe for lemon cream cheese bars that I have been making about 30 years. The original recipe was on the side of a cake box. I still make them frequently and was thinking of that recipe again last week. I decided to change a few ingredients and created lime cream cheese cake bars.

These St Patrick’s Day breakfast ideas are like diving into a little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The children and grandchildren will be celebrating this fun holiday with a lot of sweet treats today, so I have some ideas to start their St Patrick’s Day breakfast on a healthier note.
I love to serve foods in individual dishes. They look more appealing and it is a good way to practice portion control. I use my ramekins or mini cast iron skillets for individual servings.
These Loaded Crustless Mini Breakfast Souffles look like a pot of gold. I have posted this recipe previously. HERE Continue reading BREAKFAST IDEAS FOR ST PATRICK’S DAY
This time last year I took a leap of faith and retired from my career as an RN.
When anyone asks me what it is like to be retired, my answer is “Every day is Saturday”. That is what being retired feels like to me. Continue reading RETIRED AND HAPPY…ONE YEAR LATER
French toast is always a special treat.
French Toast Stuffed with Mascarpone Cheese and topped with a Triple Berry Topping is one recipe you will want to try for a very special brunch.
Southwest Chicken Salad with Jalapeno Dressing is my husband’s favorite salad. He even requested it for lunch on Valentine’s Day.
This colorful salad is filled with southwest inspired ingredients like black beans, corn, grilled chicken, peppers, tomatoes and topped with a homemade jalapeno dressing.
Valentine’s Day is usually celebrated with candy, flowers, cards, or a special dinner date. It is so much fun to find a new way to show that special person how much you love them. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to do this.
Grandpa Bob and I spent Valentine’s weekend snuggled in our cozy home, making lots of good food, watching romantic movies, and just having fun.
We were planning on going to our favorite lake resort, Stonewall Lake Resort. They have a wonderful Valentine’s weekend package and we have done this in previous years.
Lodge at Stonewall Lake Resort.
I love Valentine’s Day and all of the sweet, mushy things that go with it. I remember how special it was to do the Valentines that we gave to each other in grade school. I spent hours picking out the perfect one from the box for each classmate. I know that my little grandchildren still do the same thing now. It is just funny to me to read some of the phrases on the conversation hearts!
No matter how old my grandchildren get, I will always love to make Valentine’s Day treats for them.
I like to bake a variety of cookies and make them trays. I mail them to the little ones that live in other states. It is so special when I get a picture from their mommy’s with the open box and they have a cookie in each hand.
They love the Decorated Sugar Cookies I make.
I have been using this recipe for about 40 years and I am always pleased with it. HERE is the recipe.
Here it is!! Superbowl week.
Everyone is getting their team jerseys ready and their Superbowl party plans finalized. If you don’t like to watch it for the actual football game you have to love to watch it for the commercials.
In our family there is a rivalry brewing..what is a grandmother to do?
My Denver grandsons are Bronco fans.
My North Carolina grandsons are Panther fans.
They are ready and the trash talk is on.
Pasta Salad packed with high protein foods, delicious and good for you.
It is so cold and snowy here in WV that I could eat a warm bowl of homemade soup every day. For the past 2 weeks my husband has been asking me to make a pasta salad. I usually fixed this in the summer or when I need to take something to a covered dish event to feed a large crowd. My original recipe serves about 10 people.
To please my husband, I made this for my downsized recipe this week.
