Friday Funnies ~ Christmas in July

I promised yummy recipes today, but I must also include a here ya' go...

Ginger Crinkles
These are delicious, a family favorite, and actually quite healthy

Mammo's Gingerbread
My Grandma always made Gingerbread (her Mom's recipe) when I would visit her.  Gingerbread is so good at anytime, breakfast, snack (with coffee of course) or dinner dessert.

Did you ever try the "Minty Mocha" from Starbucks?  If you did, did you fall in love with it?  I did.  But love can be costly, so I decided to make it at home!

I had a gazillion leftover candy canes from decorating my I crushed them in a zippy bag with a hammer...
Until they looked like this...
Then I brewed some of my favorite coffee...while that was happening I whipped some fresh whipping cream with just smidge of sugar...
Add to your coffee some chocolate syrup or some Ghiradelli hot cocoa powder, then stir in some of those crushed candy canes as a sweetener and with PLENTY of that freshly whipped cream...Oh YUM!
Don't forget to give a little bit of whipped cream to the dog.... :)

And here's my Friday Funny...another song...
