Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette

This ham and veggie salad was quite the pleasant surprise. This is a don’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover situation. It is not much to look at, but I can promise you it is worth a try. I love ham, but I really only considered it a holiday meat, or […]

Aunt Carla’s Frozen Fruit Pops

These Frozen Fruit Pops were a staple in our house growing up. The top shelf of our basement freezer almost always housed a tray of this concoction which we called Frozen Fruit Cups. After playing outside all day, these were all we wanted (well, these and Dunkaroos). Frozen […]
