Summer Fun Roundup Part 2

Posted on

After the Fourth of July is when parents everywhere start hearing the whines of MOOOOM!!! I’M BORED!!! THERE’S NOTHING TO DO!  At least I can say my parents did when I was a kid! Are you wondering just what to do with them now that summer is winding down and back to school shopping is starting?

Three Years

Posted on

It doesn’t seem like three years that I married my best friend! These past three years have gone by so fast! I have loved every minute of my life with Mr. RCGG that I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world! He means everything to me and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us in our future! IMG_5638 (2)Every year we have taken an anniversary picture. It started with us holding a wedding picture on our first anniversary. I love this tradition!

These are some of my favorite pictures from our wedding:

Happy anniversary babe! I love you! =)




Grandmas Banana Bread

Posted on

Baking has always been something that I have loved to do. Over the years, I have made multitudes of cookies, cakes and other items. However, there’s just something about making a family recipe that gives you comfort. My grandma has been baking for as long as I can remember! She’s famous for just about anything she bakes. (Except chocolate chip cookies! More like chocolate chip rocks! haha!)

One of my favorites has always been Grandma’s banana bread! A few years ago around Christmas I called my mom to ask her for the recipe. I wanted to send it to Grandma as her Christmas gift. My mom thought that was a wonderful idea so she managed to get Grandmas recipe for me. It was quite an accomplishment. She said she had to make like a ninja borrowing her recipe books! Haha! I can see my mom sneaking around getting the recipe!

Ranch and Dill Chex Mix

Posted on

This is not a sponsored post! I made this on my own accord after finding the recipe in an email from Betty Crocker!

 

ranchdillchex

Mr. RCGG and I will be going on a trip soon. I wanted something as a snack in the car that wasn’t the same chips and candy. So when I got this recipe in my Betty Crocker email I knew that I wanted to to make it! It’s really simple to make. I hope you find it easy and as yummy as we do!

Dill Pickle Ranch Chex Mix

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 4 1/2 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups bite size pretzels
  • 2 cups garlic bagel chips (broken in to 1 inch pieces)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice
  • 1 packet dry ranch dressing mix

Note

This recipe is from Chex and Betty Crocker.

Directions

Step 1
In a large microwavable bowl, mix cereals. pretzels, and bagel chips.
Step 2
In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix oil, dill weed, garlic powder, and pickle juice.
Step 3
Gradually pour oil mixture over cereal mixture until evenly coated. Sprinkle with ranch dressing mix, stirring to coat.
Step 4
Micro wave uncovered on High for 4-5 minutes, stirring every minute with a rubber spatula and scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl.
Step 5
Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in an air tight container.

 

Just a note about the recipe: I would add a little more dry ranch mix to it. That’s just my preference though!
