Fun Recipe - Homemade Ice Cream from Snow!

I can't take credit for this recipe idea as I found it on the internet, but I did change it a little to meet my own personal taste (and my love of all things vanilla.)  This is a really cool way to make homemade ice cream from fresh snow.  Plus, if you have younger kids, this is a great way to make a new memory with them.

Snow Ice Cream

One gallon (or a huge bowlful) of fresh snow
1 cup white sugar
1 can evaporated milk
1 tablespoon vanilla ( or, if you are like me, 2-3 tablespoons.  ;)  )

Gather snow in a large, clean bowl.  Add sugar, vanilla and evaporated milk.  Stir with large spoon.  The snow will thicken up quickly and have the consistency of soft ice cream.

Serve immediately.  Enjoy!

Healthy AND Tasty Recipe - Spicy Cheese Popcorn

This past January, I turned over a new leaf as part of my New Year's resolution and began eating healthier.    As of my last weigh in a couple of months ago, I lost 86 pounds by doing this and feel like a new person.  It's no secret that I love food.  I was born into a Polish-German family that eats heavy, starchy, rich foods and uses food both to celebrate and to comfort. Even though I've changed my eating habits, I still enjoy having snacks as a daily part of my routine.   This is one of those recipes that's great to snack on; occasionally, when I'm not majorly hungry and/or don't feel like cooking after a long day at work, I will sometimes eat this for dinner - no kidding.


*6 cups popcorn popped the old fashioned way - in the pot on the stove or in an air popper.  (NOTE:  I  pop a big pot of popcorn at one time using one tablespoon of oil; this way, you have some to share with others or you have extra that will last you for the next couple of days.)
*2/3 cup shredded low moisture, part skim milk mozzarella cheese or sharp cheddar cheese for extra flavor;
*hot sauce, to taste (I use Tapatio sauce);
*popcorn salt, to taste

Put popcorn in a large bowl; add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix and eat.  Yummy!

By the way, the calorie count for this recipe is just under 300 calories.  Not bad for a satisfying - yet healthy - snack.  Enjoy!
