B is for Big Lots

September 29, 2010

Alphabet Thursday blog time and this week, it is the letter B.  So, I have discovered shopping at Big Lots.  It isn’t that I haven’t been in there before but I have only been there a couple of times.  But last week, I became a Big Lots fan.  Did you know you can negotiate prices [...]

Peanut Butter Banana Bread

September 27, 2010

That is right.  You heard it!  This is my first attempt to reproduce one of the recipes from The Bishop Grill Cookbook that I spoke of in the previous post (click here to check it out).  I have read the whole cookbook (like I do all cookbooks) and decided to start with something that I [...]


Fall Spiced Coffee

September 25, 2010

I just read an awesome post by the blogger My Frugal Lifestyle.  She was giving a tip on how to make a Pumpkin Spice Latte for a whole lot cheaper.  She places a tea bag on top of the coffee grinds and as it brews, the water runs through the tea bag (in this case [...]


Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

September 24, 2010

Since my daughter found out she has Ceilac’s Disease and cannot eat gluten….at all…not even in spices or vinegar… we have had to modify our family gatherings.  This is an awesome alternative for cookies and I would think anyone would like them.  So, if you know someone like this…..make them a batch and see them [...]

September 22, 2010

We are starting the alphabet again at Alphabet Thursday.  Rainbow Summer School is over!  That means fall is on the way in Texas.  So here is my post…Ain’t it Grand (I have a few kids and gkids with actual A names but….you will have to take my word on that one.) My third daughter is [...]

It is time for Tuesday’s Tasty Tidbits and I have chosen a really tasty Tomato and Onion Pie.  I hope you will link up at the bottom of this post to share a recipe. I chose this in honor of my hostess, Dian with Grocery Shop for Free.  Let me tell you why.  Once she [...]


A Visit to Bishop Grill

September 18, 2010

Many of you Dallas-ites enjoyed great and memorable meals in Rosemarie’s and Gennie’s Bishop Grill in the Bishop Arts District of Oak Cliff.  I understand all the patrons were very sad to see the Grill close it’s doors in 2005 and felt that the owners, Rosemarie and Gus, were part of their family.  Patrons that [...]


Blackboard Fun with Rainbow Colored Chalk

September 16, 2010

I bought a chalkboard from Girl’s Gone Junkin’, which I referred to in an earlier post .  Do you remember them?  Their shop is in Canton, Texas at First Monday and I hope to see them there this month.  I haven’t been since spring….too hot for me.  But, it is time to start shopping for [...]
