Easter Peanut Butter Eggs {Copycat Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs}

Don't you just love copycat recipes?  Especially when you can make your very favorite Easter candy yourself.   These Peanut Butter Eggs taste just like the real deal.   They are easy and quick to make with a few simple ingredients that are in most pantries.  I find that the Reese's peanut butter gives a more authentic flavor.  You might say these creamy peanut butter eggs are the BOMB!
These little jewels are making an appearance in a lot of Easter baskets this Sunday.  Hope you make some soon.  Enjoy!

Inspirational Thoughts #5



This is a music video by Newsboys performing in the movie God's Not Dead.  The following is a synopsis of the movie from The Dove.


Synopsis:

This movie is about present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh find himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him? GOD’S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.

Strawberry Jello Angel Food Cake {A Vintage Recipe From My Tupperware Party Days!}

This Strawberry Jello Angel Food Cake recipe is from Tupperware.   Yes, they have tons of recipes using their products, many that I have today.  Tuperware products are now vintage classics and many kitchens still use them today.  They last forever and that is saying a lot about products we get today.  
Strawberry season is coming on strong around these parts, my house included.  We just love strawberries in anything.

My husband is a big fan of this luscious fruit.  He is the first to clean and slice if necessary each time I bring them home from the grocery store.  He will say "we don't want to let them ruin."  I notice a lot of them go missing when I'm getting ready to use them in a dish.  ha! ha!
Starting with a store bought Angel Food Cake and this gorgeous cake comes together in no time.  Place it in the refrigerator and watch it transform into light and airy deliciousness.  One other reason this cake is a favorite in our family is this recipe can be made diabetic friendly.  I love to make this dessert sugar free for my daughter, who is a diabetic.  It's one of her favorites.

With Easter around the corner, this cake will be perfect to make ahead to save you time and energy for your guest.  Hope you will try this cake soon.  Enjoy!

Southern Sweet Corn Spoonbread {"It's one of those dump, stir, and pour recipes we all love!"}


This recipe for Sweet Corn Spoonbread is a Southern dish from Stacey over at The Southern Bite  I could make this stuff every night for supper.  As soon as we take it out of the oven,  we can't wait to dig in.  The recipe is so easy to make.  As he says, "it's one of those dump, stir, and pour recipes we all love."  

I adjusted a few things in the recipe based on what I had in my pantry.  I used a package of Martha White Sweet Cornbread Mix and less of the sour cream.  That is the way it is with Southerns, they are good at improvising when they are set on making a recipe.
Sweet Corn Spoonbread is a dish you can serve as  cornbread or a savory bread pudding. We love to eat this with pinto beans and stews. Sometimes we ladle a big scoop in a bowl and pour the stew on top of it. Oh! You haven't lived until you take a big bite of spoonbread and stew together.   Hope you make this scrumptious Southern dish for your family.  Enjoy!
