Easy Homemade Fruit Sherbet

My little bro and sis - The Twins.

It's been like . . . 2 months without a recipe on here. Sometimes - or should I say often as of late, blogging just doesn't happen. When I get on the computer, I've just been keeping up.

It's dry and hot, which is not good for the goats - that we get the milk from - to make sherbet. But they've been doing just fine, by God's grace, giving about 15 gallons of milk a day. (Side note: we sell hardly any of that). And us - the goat keepers - are doing okay, too. I guess  we just get a "detox" from sweating so much 2x a day. (We milk inside of a tin can - a metal barn, that is. It's 80 degrees F. on the low end and 100 degrees + on the high end). I'm sure it would be cooler if we got up earlier, but then there's the late nights - talking and/or partying with close friends or guests. (We had company for about 2 weeks straight last month).

So, that was July. And . . . it's August.

For now, here's the recipe. Chill out, blogging friends. Here's a sweet treat to help ya do that.

Easy Homemade Sherbet (Gluten-Free)
Fish Family Favorite (unsure of the origin)

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 3-oz. fruit flavored gelatin packet
4 cups milk

In a meduim-sized saucepan, combine the water, sugar and gelatin. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside for 20 minutes.

Add the milk and freeze or transfer the mixture to an ice-cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

P.S. My new baby. So sweet!

P.P.S. You may head over to my other blog for firework and new animal pictures.

new design + name

As of 1-3-12: I've re-named my blog name (which used to be "Hanunyah's Sweet Creations") to "Ranch Girl's Sweets 'N' Treats". "Sweet Creations" is a pretty common name, so I figured I'd change it to something a little different ;). My URL is still the same, though.

Also, a big thanks goes to my older sister (@ who has re-designed my blog and fixed-up all of the HTML. So, I hope you enjoy the new layout!
