Apple Spice Walnut Cake

February 24, 2011

I was perusing various blog parties the other day and ran across this recipe from a blogger called Create With Joy.  This cake looked so divine that I had to adapt it to my repertoire.  But first, of course, I had to change it.  I had all these cake mixes that were purchased on sale [...]


Arrival of the Newest Granddaughter

February 22, 2011

Well, we welcomed the arrival of the newest family member today….a little girl….weighing in at 6.2 lbs.  She is a tiny little thing….our littlest to date.  She came a few weeks early but is in perfect health.  She has black hair and it appears to be curly, like her mom… #3 daughter (Nurse M & [...]

I Was Featured

February 17, 2011

I just heard yesterday that I was featured on Miz Helen’s Country Cottage Full Plate Thursday.  She has such awesome recipes and I was so pleased to be named among her choices.  Thanks, Miz Helen!  I can’t wait to read about all the other choices and try something new for dinner.


Savory Scalloped Potatoes

February 17, 2011

I went on vacation last weekend to the mountains with some friends and had great food and fellowship.  Of course, it was great fun except for the flood from the overflowing bathtub (that overflowed for 2 hours), having to remove the carpet, my friend putting his foot through the floorboards as he was helping to [...]


Valentine’s Day Dinner

February 14, 2011

My hubby and I decided to stay in and enjoy Valentine’s Day at home.  We just got in from out of town and didn’t really want to compete with the Valentine crowd.  So, I decided to cook a steak, baked sweet potato and a salad.  My salad turned out great so, I’ll share the recipe. [...]


Ready to Rally the Paint Brushes

February 10, 2011

Started a painting last week after finally finishing one that I had been working on since summer.  That was a mistake!  I mean working on one for so long.  I noodled it to death, which is art lingo for “overworked it without a positive result”. Maybe some day I will like it, after it sits [...]


Vegetable Omelet

February 7, 2011

Happy Tuesday Tasty Tidbits!  Last week I enjoyed a snow week at home, cooking up a storm.  I particularly enjoyed the company of my husband, who was also snow bound most of the week. I hope you will add your recipe to our Blog Party.  Please make sure you link up using your recipe post [...]


Roasted Chicken and Cold Nights

February 4, 2011

I love this weather for myself but I feel so sorry for all the businesses around Cowboy Stadium and all their well laid plans for the week of the Super Bowl.  On Monday, there were contests and parties in all the business parking lots. (See Grocery Shop For Free for photos)  They had golf carts [...]
