Orange Julius

This is one of those recipes I hardly ever make but love! It not only brings back great memories but tastes great!  I remember as a kid my mom making these for us and it was a real treat!! 
Orange Julius
1 (12 oz.) can frozen orange juice
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
15-18 ice cubes. (or more depending on how you like it!)
Blend until smooth. About 30 seconds.  Start with 15 ice cubes and then add more if needed.
The only issue this time is the blender you see in the picture, no longer exists. When we washed it someone set it on the counter and my husband knocked it off and it broke. Now I am on the look out for a good new blender.


  1. Darn husbands! Hint! Hint! Mother's day is just around the corner. Orange Julius' are the greatest!

  2. Looks Yummy!
    Now you have a valid excuse to go out yardsailing!!!!
    Sparkly Hugs,
    Tobi and the Pixies!

  3. I love these!!! Haven't made one in ages... might have to do so this weekend :)

  4. My husband would simply love this! You should come link-up to Tuesday Tastes and Crazy Daisy. I would love to have you!

    Happy Day,
    Jasey @ Crazy Daisy

  5. This DOES bring back memories! It sounds great!

  6. I am sorry about your blender. Sometimes, it is fun to get a new model.

    My dishwasher just went and I would have gone without it but hubby was a good sport and insisted. I don't want the bells and whistles but I like the set-up better, more room for dishes.

    I want an orange Julius.

  7. Oh man I use to love hitting the S. Hill mall and getting one of these! What a great recipe.

    Oh no on blender ;(

  8. Yum! Isn't it funny how you forget about recipes that you used to love? I had totally forgotten about the good old Orange Julius's.

    Well I wanted to click over and say that I received your nice cookbook in the mail and I am so very excited.

    I'm sorry that I haven't been on the computer at all lately. I meant to come over forever ago to thank you, so I'm so sorry if I seemed ungracious! :) Hoping to get back in the swing of things soon.

    :) Thanks for making my day!

  9. I just pulled my blender out of storage and this is perfect timing...I forgot how much I missed these drinks..

  10. I haven't seen an orange julius in years, my uncle use to have an orange julis stand in the mall, the celebration punch sounds good too, I mix 7-up & ginger ale with my sherbert to make abig bowl of punch, whatever the color theme is is what flavor sherbert to use LOL I will have to give the lemon lime a try

  11. This brings back memories of going to the mall (when malls were oh so popular) and hanging out all day!
    Great recipe! I bookmarked it. My kids will love this in the summer!

  12. We had the same problem with our blender! Somebody crammed it in the cupboard and when I proceeded to open it, the dang thing fell out and broke. It was a very nice one too. Made me wonder if having an (then) 11 year old unload the dishwasher was a good idea. I still havent replaced.

  13. Oh this is one of my fav recipes. My sister and I often make this when she comes to town - it's drink that brings back lots of childhood memories for us (our parents drank them with Gin in them! LOL).

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
