Happy 4th of July 2013

Updated 08-09-2013 at 03:22 PM by bigbearfla58 (Ice Cream for Summer 2013)





I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy 4th of July.

Today in honor of my Great Grandmother's 148th birthday I am once again making her vanilla boiled custard ice cream from scratch that is always churned by hand.

I told my family I was going to post the recipe and promptly was vetoed. They will not allow me to share this treasured family secret. I will have to put the recipe back into the vault until next year at this time.

I have decided I am going to share the recipe just not the tips and techniques to make perfect ice cream you'll have to figure that out.

1-Quart of Great Value Whole Milk
1- cup of Organic Valley heavy whipping cream
4 Jumbo Eggs at room temperature
5 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt add this to milk mixture
Morton's Ice Cream Salt –1 box

Good luck!!

Farewell Our Beloved Friend

Sam passed away peacefully today after a long illness. Born on Halloween 2001 Sam came to his family on Christmas morning as a present for our 9 year old daughter but he ended up becoming a gift to us all.


Sam was one of a litter of 8 short hair border collie puppies found from a rescue in Ogden, Utah. He was the smallest and most social of the bunch. Sam spent the bulk of his first car ride from Ogden to Draper, Utah on my chest, shaking and whining nearly the entire way. His welcome on Christmas morning was glorious and he basked in the activity, love and energy that a family with seven children would provide.


Sam was a bird chaser and a mouse catcher. He was intolerant of cats, squirt guns and carbonated beverages the kids would sometimes slip him for entertainment (he barked at them). Sam was athletic, loving to run for long periods of time. He was a tireless explorer, a fearless wanderer and a hopeless carnivore.

Playlist - Mistletoe Mix/Greasy Skillet - December 15, 2012

Posted 06-19-2013 at 05:47 PM by RadioJonD (Tinseled Musings from a Yule Tuned Mind)

Mistletoe Mix/Greasy Skillet - December 15, 2012

Like last year we will feature two all Christmas shows this week and next! These shows are two shows in one, hence the phrase "The Mistletoe Mix Edition of the Greasy Skillet".

"Mistletoe Mix" is a program heard online at www.merrychristmasradio.com. Unlike "Greasy Skillet" which runs on broadcast radio station WAAM in Ann Arbor (and online at www.waamradio.com), "MM" doesn't have commercial breaks. So, listeners to "MM" on MCR get extra content to round their hour! The playlist below will reflect the extra songs with a line break from the usual "GS" playlist. Cornfused? Think how I must feel!

GS December 15, 2012 Hour One

Christmas Time's A-Comin' - Buck Owens & The Buckaroos
Merry Christmas From the Family - Robert Earl Keen
Happy Holidays Y'all - Robert Earl Keen
Santa Didn't Bring Us Squat - Shelby Lynn
