Strawberry Rhubarb Fizz…

Food reminds me of people.  Lemon – grandma.  Black Cherry Ice Cream and peach pie (not together…or maybe together) – mom.  Chocolate  – my sister-in-law (and her children).  Lemonade and Reese’s PB eggs- my younger brother.  Chocolate ice cream with ‘stuff’ mixed in (nuts preferably) my dad.  Strawberry rhubarb treats and cherry cordial ice cream- my olderContinue reading “Strawberry Rhubarb Fizz…”

Coconut Strawberry Oat Bars

Spring cleaning.  It is something that I want to do.  No, let me make it clear…it is something that I wish I wanted to do.  It needs done – no doubt.  Winter tends to be the season to collect and gather, making life cozy.  Or cluttered.  As I look around my house, it is clutterContinue reading “Coconut Strawberry Oat Bars”
