RICH & CREAMY BUTTER PECAN ICE CREAM RECIPE

Brown Butter No Churn Ice Cream

I just ran across this recipe and wanted to share it.  I love butter-pecan ice cream and this recipe looks amazing.  It is a little more complicated than some of those 2 ingredient recipes but I think the results will be amazing.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup  Butter
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup toffee bits

PASTA STIR-FRY FROM THE GARDEN

 

I make varieties of this pasta dish all summer long using vegetables from the garden. This time I only used carrots, yellow squash, and tomatoes.  I usually also add zucchini but you can add any vegetable you like.

I know I say this on most of my recipes but this is your meal.  Make it with the ingredients you like. If you don’t like the garlic in this recipe, don’t add it.  If you want to use a different type of squash, go ahead.

For me, this is perfect.  I could eat it every night.  It’s not heavy like spaghetti with sauce, making it perfect for summer dinners.

BEST SOUTHERN PRALINES – Super Easy to Make

I have had this recipe for over twenty years.  I think it came out of an old Southern Living magazine /cookbook. I made a copy of a page that contains four recipes but there is no identification anywhere on the page.  I plan to make all four recipes so I’ll add them and I add the recipes.

I don’t know why I have recipes in my head that I consider hard to make but I do.  Pralines is one of those recipes that I always thought hard to make.  Maybe I used a different recipe in the past or maybe I’m just getting old and can’t remember things.  Either way, this recipe is super easy and can be made from staples in your pantry.

SOUTHERN PRALINES

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of pecans

HOW TO CAN BLACKBERRY JELLY THE EASY WAY.

Last year, I purchased a raspberry and blackberry plant.  I also dug up several wild blackberry plants and  planted all of them in a nice neat row.  This year has yielded enough blackberries to make several pints of jelly and some juice to make blackberry lemonade and blackberry cupcakes.

I have Blackberry, Vanilla Blackberry, and Jalapeno Blackberry Jelly pictured above.

If you have access to blackberries and would like to make some jelly, check out the recipe below.

I thought all jelly recipes were the same since each state not to adjust the amount of sugar, water, pectin, etc.  I usually just use the Ball Blue Book for all canning but have recently started using the packet instructions that come inside of my sure-jell.  It gives instructions for smaller batches and works perfect for me.
