I love to cook and after a half century under the sun, I am blessed with the freedom to decide each day what I want to read, think, cook and eat! This blog — a few of my favorite things — family and friends recipes and the words of scripture that guide my thoughts and actions. My hope is that through Pray Cook Blog, you will find inspiration today for your daily bread, body and soul.

When It’s Hot Outside – Cool Oreo Cookie Dessert Inside!

I love receiving recipes from friends and this one is a great one!  My friend Adrian gave me this recipe reminding me of the time I used to make it in the summer.   She said “it is delicious!” – and I can tell you it is!  I use to make this for my family before “the diet” (Did I Eat That?) but for now I am still looking at my size 10 pantsuit that I bought in January wondering “what was I thinking?”  So, we won’t be eating this anytime soon – but hopefully you will!

This is a perfect summer dessert combining oreo cookies (who doesn’t love them) and ice cream!  The only issue may be that it should be eaten inside rather than outside because in the heat the ice cream will melt pretty fast!

Oreo Cookie Dessert

Bottom Crust:   36 crushed cookies  and 1 stick butter

½ gallon ice cream  (vanilla or can use another favorite)


3 squares bakers semi-chocolate

3/4 cup sugar

11/2 Tablespoon butter

1 cup evaporated milk

  • Melt butter and add cookies then press into bottom of pan. Freeze.
  • Next layer soften ice cream and freeze.
  • Mix the 4 remaining ingredients, cook until thickened, which generally takes about 10 minutes after mixture begins boiling
  • Then cool completely and spread on top of ice cream

Refreeze and serve!  Fun and delicious!

Revelation 1:1  The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,

My first blog post and Asian Slaw!

Asian Slaw down
About 1 ½ years ago I started this blog using software.  I had trouble trying to create the look and fluidity that I wanted within the website.  After a couple of attempts, I put it on the back burner.  Now, after researching and finding software I am once again embarking on this adventure!  I am so excited about blogging and sharing a daily scripture, a favorite recipe, and of course, a few ramblings.

Please join me as often as you can, write comments whenever you are so inclined, and add your email address so you will be notified whenever a new recipe or blog post is published!

Asian slaw
Since it is the beginning of the summer food season I thought I would start with a recipe we just love!  It is a delightful side dish, or you can throw in some cooked chicken and it becomes “dinner!”

Romans 8:38-39

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present not the future, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
