About this Cook
Home schooling mom of two grade school boys. Flock leader of 5 free roaming budgies. Added a Maltese Bichon whom is my little lamb... where ever I go he's sure to follow... 15 months now & he's still my shadow... I think it's the Maltese in him that makes him especially clingy to a favorite person...
My favorite things to cook
Healthy, simple, modest, delicious, & frugal recipes/meals...

Refried Beans Without the Refry
Good idea to use slow cooker... don't add any salt til after the beans are tender... I've always heard & read that salt hinders the beans' reconstitution (or rehydrating) process... wait til after they are tender to liking & then season. It's also a good idea to presoak the beans or do the quick soak method first as it's scientifically said to reduce gas...

Peanut Butter Honey Balls
Great recipe, especially for kids... I add extra powdered milk to mine to make them easier to roll into balls & not be sticky as we don't coat them with anything... my 10 & 8 year old love 'em... so do I... we've always liked peanut butter... my mom use to stir peanut butter & honey together & put 'em on saltine crackers! =)

Easy and Fun Peanut Butter Balls
I haven't tried this version. The one I came across was 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup honey, & 2 cups powdered milk. I found that they form & keep better using 2 1/2 cups powdered milk with the 1 cup honey & the 1 cup of peanut butter. I used a leveled measuring tablespoon spoonful to form uniform balls. Makes 35 balls. My growing boys love 'em. They are nutritious enuf the way they are. Some users added wheat germ... wheat germ packs in a LOT of extra calories... google wheat germ... if your child doesn't need a big calorie boost, leave it out... PB&J sammies with a glass of milk are nutrious enuf the way they are... I grew up eating PB&J sammies without adding anything else... tho, we did eat them on whole wheat bread... honey, peanut butter, & milk are good for children once in a while. If it's a snack, it doesn't have to have as many or more calories than a lunch or a meal... *I store them at room temp in a covered container with aluminum foil (or could use wax paper) between the layers of balls. They'll keep well for a couple weeks so you can make a double batch at once, if desired.
