I have fond memories of eating this guacamole as a child (my mother's friend gave her the recipe) and have continued to make it since. Sometimes the recipe has been tweaked along the way and that is one thing I love about guacamole - you can change it based on your taste and preferences. Do you like lime instead of lemon? No problem! Do you want to add a little cilantro? Yum! Enjoy with chips, tacos, or countless other creative ways.


Old Fashioned Potato Salad

Old-Fashioned Potato Salad

I always look forward to potato salad in the summer - yum! †I found this recipe in the Good Housekeeping Cookbook, a gift from my mother-in-law that was my go-to cookbook for many years. †The recipe also calls for radishes, but I never did put them in. †Hard-boiled eggs are always an option.


Banana ALmond Butter Ice CreamBanana Almond Butter Ice Cream

For those desiring a non-dairy, no sugar ice cream, this recipe makes for an easy alternative. Feel free to add any of your favorite add-ins (nut or fruit pieces, chocolate chips, get creative).
