Well, here I am at Post #100. When I started From Grammie’s Kitchen, I didn’t even consider hitting a milepost – I just wanted to write a bit about things of interest that pertained to homekeeping. That’s what we do, you know. We’re keeping our homes and families in the best possible condition that we can – clean, well-fed, healthy. And I hope along the way we give ourselves a little pat on the back for a job well done.

To celebrate this milestone, I’m giving away another FREE E-Book – your choice of :

(1)  506 Pumpkin Recipes
(2)  250+ Pie Recipes
(3)  Classic Desserts

All you have to do to get your FREE recipe book is send an email to and tell me which one you’d prefer. It will be sent to you as an email attachment right away! Happy Cooking!
I made these delicious brownies for Labor Day. Give them a try when you need something chocolate!


2 cups crushed pretzels
1 stick butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 box brownie mix (8” pan size)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

Combine the pretzels, butter and sugar. Press into an ungreased 8” baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes. Cool on rack. Reduce oven to 350 degrees (or temperature given in directions for brownie mix).

Prepare brownie mix as directed. Spread over crust and bake for time given on box. Do not overbake. Cool on rack.

Melt chips and peanut butter in microwave, stirring till smooth. Spread over brownies. Chill for 30 minutes. Cut into bars. Store airtight.

(Adapted from a Taste of Home recipe)

Notes: I used Splenda instead of sugar and a sugar-free brownie mix.
Today is Be Late for Something Day. Did you manage to do that? I haven't been out today - working at home - so I haven't been late yet, but there's still time.

It's also Cheese Pizza Day. 

Tomorrow (September 6) is National Lazy Mom's Day. I'm not sure where that one came from because the typical Mom is anything but lazy! We don't have time to be lazy. But if you get a chance, take a few lazy minutes for yourself tomorrow.

And since tomorrow is also Read A Book Day why not combine the two and really go for it? A few quiet minutes with a good book sound pretty good right about now.

Coming up....

Sunday is National Grandparents Day. Celebrate those special people in your children's lives.
