Chocolate Sauce for Ice Cream

It has been warming up around here lately so the ice cream has started to come out of the freezer a lot. One of the favorite things we love to put on vanilla ice cream is homemade chocolate sauce. So I thought I would share the recipe that I always make so you can try it. It is super easy to make it just takes a little time. 
Here are the ingredients you are going to need.
In a saucepan put 1/4 cup butter, 8 Tablespoons of baking cocoa, 2 cups sugar and 1 1/2 cups of milk.
Stir it all together and bring it to a boil.
Then you let it boil and boil.......
and boil until it gets to 220 degrees. It will take about 20-25 minutes It will be a jelly like consistency. Remove from heat and stir in one teaspoon of vanilla.
Cool slightly, drizzle and enjoy!

Moon Cake

This is one of our favorite family recipes. Moon Cake. So yummy! Here are the ingredients you will needs and you will need to preheat your oven at 400 degrees.
Here is how you make it: To make the crust, in a saucepan put 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup margarine and bring that to a boil. Remove from stove.
Then add 1 cup of flour ALL AT ONCE stir until mixture forms a ball.
Then add 4 eggs ONE at a time stir until all incorporated.
Spread the mixture into a greased 9 X 13 pan.
Bake in your preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. DO NOT open the oven during the baking time. When the 30 minutes are up it should look like this. The crust remind me of a cream puff.
While the crust is cooling mix the middle layer. In a bowl put an 8 oz. brick of cream cheese (softened) in a bowl and beat until fluffy. Then add 3 1/2 cups milk and beat them together.
Add to the mixture 2 (3oz.) boxes of instant vanilla pudding and mix.
Spread that onto the cooled crust.
Top with whipped topping. I whip heavy whipping cream but you can use cool whip also. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the top. And if you like coconut like I do then you can sprinkle that on it as well. I only do part of the top because not everyone in this house likes coconut which is SO wrong. Ha!

When the Moon cake is completely cool slice and enjoy!

Dr. Jessica DVM

 Remember last week when I told you about our lady (cow) Laura? Well over the weekend she became really sick after having her baby. We called our A-mazing vet Jessica out and she had to perform surgery on Laura. Sometimes when a mama gives birth to a baby calf their stomach can get twisted. They become very sick, very quickly. Thank goodness Dr. Jessica makes house calls and fixed her right up.



 I will just have to tell you I couldn't watch the surgery Eeekkkkk! But Dr. Jessica fixed her up in no time flat. The other thing that amazes me about Dr. Jessica is her style no matter what she is doing she always looks so classy. Hair done, makeup on and perfectly manicure nails. So Adorable! I love how even though she has a career that makes it very hard to look classy she does it with perfection. To top it off she is a mom as well and she just throws her girls in the truck and goes and gets it done! So, thankful for harding working women in our industry that knows how to keep the ladies healthy and happy!
