Sweet Treats

September 22, 2009

My mom (Laura) always had special treats for us growing up.  I enjoyed a couple over the weekend and thought I would share them with you.

Laura’s Apple Cider

  • 3 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 5 cloves

Directions: Heat on the stove and enjoy.

My mom always had this cider ready when we got back from trick-or-treating on Halloween.  It makes your house smell amazing.

Laura’s “Orange Cream Cooler”

  • Orange juice
  • Vanilla ice cream

Directions: Mix together in blender.

*Note: Dan loves strawberries and we’ve taken to adding 5-6 frozen strawberries to this drink. 

My mom was too cheap frugal to buy these at Olga’s so we made them at home.  I have to say – I like it a lot better than Olga’s version.
