Oh sure, we could have posted a recipe of some kind of food, but we thought we would give it a twist this month.
We all need a little something to wash all the good food down with so we decided to share our sweet tea recipe!
Whether your sharing it with family or friends or taking to a potluck you can’t go wrong with sweet tea!
I mean, really, who doesn’t love sweet tea???!!!???
Hope you enjoy this!
We do love us some sweet tea our homes, and we drink a lot of it.
I, Dana, make a fresh gallon at least every other day.
I always get compliments on my tea, don’t really know why, I don’t do anything special, I just make it.
I think the secret lies in the amount sugar you add, like sugar is a big secret since it’s been around for ages and ages!!
Anyway, I get lots of request on how make it so good, (LOL), so I thought I would share it with everyone!
1 gallon size Lipton tea bag or 3 regular size Lipton tea bags
2 cups sugar
Fill a medium sauce pan with water and bring to a boil.
Turn off the heat and drop in the tea bag. Allow tea to steep for about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour the 2 cups of sugar in a gallon size tea pitcher.
Gently swirl the tea bag around in the water to release the flavor of the tea. While holding the bag in the sauce pan, pour tea into pitcher. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
Leave the tea bag in the pan and fill the pan with fresh cold water and pour into pitcher.
Remove tea bag and fill pan with ice cubes and pour into pitcher. Stir until almost all the ice is dissolved.
Finish filling the pitcher with fresh water. Fill a mason jar with ice and pour yourself a glass of cold iced tea!
Garnish with lemon if you wish. I like lemon if I am just going to be enjoying it as a refreshing beverage.
But not so much if I am washing down my food with my tea!
Oops, we just realized that it is July 12 and we haven’t published our recipe of the month!
Sorry folks, but it has been a very busy July thus far!
Anyway, with all the heat we have had we thought something cool and creamy would be ideal for this month’s recipe. Sooooooo, we selected Neapolitan Dirt!
This refreshing dessert is sure to be a crowd pleaser; and hear it is! Enjoy!
Oh. My. Gosh! Recently I was making Dirt and opened my cabinet to get the normal vanilla pudding it’s made with BUT a box of this new strawberry cream pudding that I ran across at Wal-Mart fell out. I thought I would try the strawberry instead of the vanilla and it TURNED OUT AWESOME! You have got to try this!
1 package Oreos
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter, melted
1 – 12 ounce French Vanilla cool whip
1 – 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
1/2 to 3/4 cup confectioner sugar
1 3.5 ounce box Strawberry Cream instant pudding
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Melt butter in a 9x7x2.5 inch dish. Place 1/2 package of the Oreos in a food processor. Process until Oreos are crumbs. Pour Oreos in with the butter and stir until moistened. Make a crust with the Oreos. In a large mixing bowl add cool whip, cream cheese and sugar. Mix in high-speed until mixture fluffy and free of lumps. Pour over Oreos and smooth out. In the same mixing bowl, add pudding, milk and whipping cream and mix on high-speed until pudding is thickened. Pour over cream cheese mixture and spread it out. Crush up remaining Oreos and sprinkle over top of pudding. Chill for about 15 minutes or until ready to serve.
YUM, YUM! If you haven’t tried this yet you are missing out!

Wow, what a week, and tomorrow is Friday, YAY! Looks like we are going to have a busy, busy weekend. Our church youth retreat is this weekend, and of course my husband has reminded me, more than once, that it’s muzzle loader season. So, I guess if I need him for anything I will know where to look for him, in the woods! Speaking of my husband, look at what he and my boys got my for my birthday!
And what a deal, buy the 12 piece cookware set and get a gift with purchase; the 12″ all, purpose pan! It was on sale at Kohl’s and I had a 30% off coupon, practically stole it! I highly recommend Calphalon cookware, I absolutely love mine. Food Network chef Michael Symon uses and endorses Calphalon. However, I am sure the Calphalon cookware set he uses cost a whole lot more than mine!
Check out the recipe box, I added a few more today. No pictures yet but I will have some soon, hopefully! I do hope you will keep visiting us and recommending this site. Jen is working on the FAQ section and we will have Q’s & A’s very soon. Everyone have a great weekend, just don’t forget about us! God Bless
