When I worked at my local election last week a lady gave me a site to look up on my computer called Crockin Girls. They have all recipes only for your crockpot. They also have a cookbook out that I got at my local library that has tons of crockpot recipes. I just love their site and their cookbook.

Many many recipes that are easy and cheap. Just thought our Landers might be interested. Couldn't hardly believe it but we had snow again this last Thursday!!! Now today it's 65 - come on Spring lol.

Muffins don't get much easier than this! If you don't have self-rising flour, you can use regular flour, adding 1 tbsp. baking powder and 1 tsp. salt.

Ice Cream Muffins Recipe

2 cups self-rising flour
2 cups (1 pint) ice cream, softened

Combine in mixing bowl until smooth. Fill 12 well greased muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 425 for 20 minutes, until golden brown. Best served warm with butter. Makes 1 dozen muffins.

If richer muffin is desired, add 1 egg and 2 tbsp. cooking oil to mixture. I use vanilla ice cream, but you can experiment and try another flavor.

For the most part Ditto and Little One (my cats) get along well.  The last day or so Little One hasn't let Ditto take his afternoon nap.  Just about the time Ditto gets asleep along comes Little One reaching  through the pillows to whack Ditto on the head with his paw.  After several hours of Ditto trying ignore Little One, Ditto decided to change sleeping locations.

Ditto used his paws to open the door between the house and the garage.  He went out to the garage and made an attempt to sleep on the top shelf of the bookcase. Poor Ditto just couldn't get away from Little One. Ditto gets mad again. I was watching to what he would do next.  He stomps back into the house and slammed the door shut with his hind paw.  After a few minutes I hear Little One meowing at the top of his lungs from the garage. Ditto was against the door and wouldn't move so I could open the the door.  I could almost see a smile on Ditto's face. Ditto took about a 30 minute nap and eventually moved so the door could be opened to let out Little One. It is so much fun watching them.

Barkeeper's Friend makes a liquid cleaner for these stoves that is the best I've ever found. If you can't find it in stores, you can order it online. I tried several before I found this - I had always used their cleanser, so I thought I'd check to see if they made anything like this, and luckily they did! I've used it for years with excellent results.
