Canning Cowboy Candy.

So you may be asking…what exactly IS Cowboy Candy?  I had the same question.  But, I saw the recipe brought up over and over and over in one of my canning groups, and everyone absolutely raved about it.  So, I had to give it a try.  Basically, Cowboy Candy is jalapeno peppers added to a […]


I couldn’t believe that I never posted this recipe before (I went to re-share it today and couldn’t find it!).  This is a tried and true recipe that I have been making for several years now.  I first received a jar of the finished product from my cousin for Christmas one year, and she kindly […]

Ingredients: 2 […]

Honey Crunch Granola Bars.

I’ve tried several granola recipes, and I like each one for different qualities.  This one is super easy to make, and holds up better as a bar than some of the others that I’ve tried.  Thanks to for this recipe. Ingredients: 4 cups quick oats 1 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup butter, melted 1/2 […]
