I had a great birthday! My two sister-in-laws made a great dinner that included my favorite chocolate cake with chocolate icing!    Sorry I forgot to take a pic to share.    I only wish I could have been with more of my family and friends.  I miss them so much!  Thank you all for the birthday wishes!

The other day I made my Easy Bean Soup and these yummy corn muffins.


They were delicious!  I used Jiffy Corn Bread mixed according to directions. Then take 1/2 cup frozen corn,  warmed in microwave, add 1 tablespoon butter to warm corn (to melt the butter) add  to batter,  then add 1/4 cup diced sweet red peppers.  Do not over mix your batter.  Bake according to directions.

I just finished up a new kit that should be in the store in a few days. 

Here’s a  Sneak Peek!


Have a great weekend

Cookies and a little story

Yesterday I made some yummy peanut butter cookies,  they were good, but I’m still looking for that perfect recipe.  I’m looking for a cookie that’s a little crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  If you have a favorite recipe you would like to share, I’d love to try it!


Next week I’m going to try a recipe Bunny gave me last night.  I’ll let you know how they turn out.


Story for Today – My good friend Diane emailed this little story to me today and I thought I’d share it with you.

When I was a kid, my  mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now
and then. And I remember  one night in particular when she had made
breakfast after a long, hard day at  work.
On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a  plate of eggs, sausage and
extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I  remember waiting to see if
anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for  his biscuit, smile at my mom
and ask me how my day was at school. I don't  remember what I told him that
night, but I do remember watching him smear  butter and jelly on that
biscuit and eat every bite!
When I got up  from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom
apologize to my dad for  burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he
said: "Honey, I love  burned biscuits."
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night  and I asked him if he
really liked his biscuits burned. He wrapped me in his  arms and said, "Your
Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real  tired. And besides - a
little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone!"
Life  is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the
best at  hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like
everyone  else.  But what I've learned over the years is that learning to
accept  each others faults - and choosing to celebrate each others differences -
is  one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and
lasting  relationship.
We  could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the
base of  any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!
"Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - keep  it in
your own."
God Bless You......  Now, and Always....
So Please pass me a biscuit,  and yes, the burnt one will do just

My new kit and Pick Ur Bits

We went out to lunch today , it was yummy!  We went to this little place we like, they have specials everyday, kind of like the blue plate special, but they have about 5 different specials everyday.  Plus they have a full menu if you don’t like any of the specials.  I had the express lunch, today it was country fried chicken breast with mashed taters, gravy, 2 veggies and garlic bread all this for only $4.50.  See why we like it, it’s yummy and the price is right.  And they don’t skimp on the portions either. I’m stuffed! I think it will be my lunch and dinner!  I might have a snack later but doubt if I’ll feel like a whole meal.  So what did you do today?

My new kit  Shelby  is in my DSO store it’s full of goodies to create lots of pages.  And, it is on sale this week for only $2.00  you save 50% !



Also the DSO team has been busy, we created a Pick Ur Bits kit called Forever & After. This is huge, like a Mega kit, but a little different. Yes, they all coordinate like a Mega kit but you get to pick the pieces you want to buy.  It’s a bunch of mini kits that all go together!  How cool is that.

Here’s my part, it’s only $1.50 


Here’s the whole lot, why not buy them all!!
