Kim’s Peanut Clusters

My Grandpa loved desserts. And mashed potatoes and gravy… (But we’ll save the taters and gravy for another day)

So, since I was in the mood for chocolate – and grieving the loss of my beloved Grandpa, yet wanting to celebrate his Home-going – I decided to make my peanut clusters.

(Sorry, we’re about to leave on another book tour, and my good camera is packed, so these are from the iPhone. But hopefully, you get the idea…)

These are extremely simple to make. In fact, the invention came by throwing things in the crock-pot. Yep, you read that right – I made these in the crock-pot. (I only have 15 crock-pots, so I could theoretically make 15 batches at one time. Not that I’m going to… but I could.)

I’ll quit babbling now and share my recipe:

Legacy of Love – In Honor of Ray Frappier

This week has been a tough one. I’m getting ready to hit the road on another book tour, Kayla is still recovering, hubby is sick, and I got the news Sunday that my precious Grandpa is not long for this earth. My Grandpa is amazing. He’s also a WWII veteran and hero. A beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. I’m praising God that Grandpa is going home. No more pain. No more alzheimer’s. No more suffering. But wow, it sure is hard. Grandma and Grandpa have now been married 70 years. Wow. My family is close – and our grandparents have always been there. Always. As I sit here with tears streaming down my face, I realized that the very first blog I posted – five years ago – on Aug. 23, 2007 – was in tribute to them. So here is a re-post – Legacy of Love.

I love …
