Easy Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe
My friend, Cortney, has been telling all about Chick-Fil-A’s new Frosted Lemonade. Although, I’m trying to stay away from sweets, I think this will be a fun summertime treat for my kiddos. You can buy premade lemonade at the grocery store, or opt for a lower sugar version with lemonade flavored Crystal Light. This recipe is so easy your kids may be able to jump right in and help. Perfect for a hot summer afternoon!
- 1 cup Lemonade (you could also use Lemonade Crystal Light for a lower sugar version)
- 2 cups Vanilla Ice Cream (optional sugar free lemonade)
- Lemons for garnish (Optional)
- Blend lemonade and ice cream together.
- Serve in chilled glasses and garnish with lemon slices.
**Make sure to use a good quality Ice Cream otherwise it can get foamy when blended.

St. Paddy’s Day Cake Mix Bars
Looking for a simple and yummy treat to make on St. Patrick’s Day? It doesn’t get much easier than these St. Paddy’s Day bars that come straight from a cake mix!
Kasey here, I have barely cooked the past couple of months because I’ve felt so yucky from morning sickness. (In case you missed my announcement on Mother’s Day we are expecting a new addition in November of this year.) I made it up to my family today by making our favorite Best Buttermilk Pie before Gary starts a new AdvoCare 24-day challenge this week. If you haven’t tried Buttermilk Pie, it is simply amazing!!! One of my absolute favorite desserts, it melts in your mouth and it’s so so easy to make.
This particular recipe, comes straight from my mama’s kitchen. She made me this precious handwritten recipe book when I first got married 17 years ago. By far, it is the most used recipe book in my kitchen. It includes all my family’s favorite recipes. Since it’s not a “secret” recipe I thought I’d share with you.

- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 stick butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch salt
- 1 unbaked regular 9 inch pie shell
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

- Pour into pie shell and bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the middle is softly set.
