Mexican Pasta with Poblano Queso

December 26, 2011

Whenever I cook pasta, I always cook extra and put it in the freezer so that I can pull out a few cups for a quick meal.   So, I did just that the other day.  After browning the meat, it was just a matter of opening cans, melting the cheese and throwing it all together.  [...]


Fun Semi-Homemade Christmas Gifts

December 20, 2011

Nurse M & M (daughter #3 and author of 52 Mantels) and I went to Ikea the other Day to do some shopping.  What an experience!  Have you visited that store?  We started in the restaurant to eat a little Swedish fare (well…maybe not) but we could have.  Great little lunch special and Lil Punkin [...]


Easy Buttery Kahlua Fudge

December 19, 2011

First let me say, “MERRY CHRISTMAS”!!!!!  I pray that you have a blessed season and I pray that you will find the reason for the season.

This month, I am assigned to Dash [...]


His Name is Called Emmanuel

December 7, 2011

I love to celebrate Christmas and I enjoy all the decorations, particularly vintage, glittery, sparkly things.  I get into all the gifts and lights and Christmas music. I love the Christmas shows and shopping and all the family traditions….and the great food.    However, the birth of a baby in a manger is what it is [...]


Scalloped Potatoes with Cheesy Bechamel Sauce

December 5, 2011

I love the  holiday season and all the parties, dinner invitations…..decorations.  I LOVE the lighted Christmas trees.  Yes…plural.  I now have one in my reading area….in my bedroom.  I didn’t decorate it except with one string of pearls…..and, of course, lights.  It is only about 4 feet tall anyway.  I like it so much that [...]
