Does anyone else ever feel like they just can’t live without a cup of coffee in the morning, but you really don’t need to make an entire pot, you just want a cup to drink on your way to work. I do! My fiancé rarely wants coffee when I do (or the same kind that I do) so if I make an entire pot it gets wasted, and it’s a sin to waste good coffee. So I always try to just make a cup worth but I still always end up wasting a little bit, and I hate that.
I’ve found that a Keurig works wonderfully for us! I can make just a cup at a time! Also if I want say a dark roast, and my fiancé wants a blonde roast, there isn’t any arguing about what kind to make! It’s wonderful! And the best part is we never waste coffee!
Rural King now offers a bunch of different k-cup flavors, and some other super handy Keurig products! We have everything from Perfect Ice Teato French Vanilla Iced Coffee! Check them out!
Can’t decide between Brownies or Cookies?? Get creative and make yourself some BROOKIES!! It is my favorite dessert as well as extremely easy to make..
For the brownie layer:
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
For the Cookie layer:
- 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- For the brownie layer, melt chocolate chips with butter for 1 1/2 minutes in microwave safe glass bowl. Stir until smooth. Add sugar, flour and eggs and combine completely.
- Pour into a 13″ x 9″ baking dish lined with parchment paper.
- For the cookie dough, beet Crisco with butter. Beat in milk, vanilla, sugars, peanut butter and egg. Add flour salt and baking powder.

- Bake in a 375 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove and cool completely. Refrigerate and cut into bars.
If you are really feel like it, you can use store bought cookie dough and brownie mix and it would be seriously amazing as well, but we all know everything is better when it is homemade!!

It’s getting hot out now. So, you know what that means! It’s time to cool off with some homemade ice cream! Because we all know store bought ice cream can’t compare to the flavors of fresh ice cream.
Rural king has several ice cream makers from you to choose from, so everyone will be sure to find the one perfect for them!
My first choice would be the White Mountain 6 Qt Electric Ice Cream Maker PBWMIME612-PP6. The new, improved 12,000-rpm motor is designed with plenty of power to make sure every batch comes out perfect. At the heart of the White Mountain ice cream maker is a uniquely designed, twin-blade “dasher.” The outer canister turns clockwise and the blades turn both clockwise and counter clockwise. That triple-motion action continuously folds the ingredient mixture from the outer walls back onto itself, creating the smoothest and creamiest down-home ice cream ever made.
Next up would be the Sportsman, Hand/Electric, 6 Qt. Ice Cream Freezer ICM6! This wooden ice cream maker allows you to either use as electric or hand crank to make your homemade ice cream! You can make ice cream in as little as 3o minuets! Your kids are going to love having the option to crank their own ice cream!
We also have available the Nostalgia Electrics Old Fashioned Ice Cream Maker ICMP400BLU
The Old Fashioned Ice Cream Maker™ provides a homemade ice cream experience with modern convenience. Simply fill the plastic bucket with ice, place the aluminum canister filled with ingredients in the center of the bucket and the electric motor does the churning for you. Soon, delicious ice cream is ready to serve! This ice cream maker can make up to 4 quarts of ice cream per batch!
I’m sure whatever machine you decide to go with will be the right one for you!
