Wishing everyone a peaceful and happy new year! I’ll leave you with some of my favorites from this year.
This was so much fun! Cold as hell, but fun. I’m just now getting feeling back in the tips of my fingers. Continue reading “Frozen Bubbles”
We got more snow this morning. Not a lot. Probably less than an inch, but it was a nice refresh to what we got the other day and that had already mostly melted. I like seeing it on the ground, stuck in the branches of the trees and on the bushes. It is especially nice that there isn’t so much that the roads are bad. There is something about a new snow that makes the world feel fresh and new and clean. Continue reading “More Snow”
Wishing everyone a beautiful day!
Santa came early last night and left us our first inch of snow for the season. With the cold temps, we should still have it on the ground for tomorrow. It isn’t much, but it is there and it is white and beautiful.
Merry Christmas Eve!
So, today will be our Christmas Eve with my in-laws. Not because this is when we normally do it, but because there MIGHT be a SLIGHT chance of the white stuff on Christmas Eve. Since we can’t have that (no seriously, things get stupid crazy with the in-laws when weather of any kind other than perfectly dry and sunny is involved), I’ll be doing all my Christmas Eve stuff today instead. Hopefully, that doesn’t include watching for weather updates every other minute.
Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
Here is the last recipe for the season. This is another super simple recipe and one that is incredibly addictive. Continue reading “Candied Pecans”
May today remind you that, even in the darkest times, the light always returns.
Now, bring on the snow!
I say this is a universal pie crust because it really does work amazingly well in any application you need pie crust. Continue reading “Universal Pie Crust”
8 batches of pie crust (recipe coming soon) that got turned into 16 mini pot pies and one big pot pie for our dinner and I’m done with my baking for my FIL. Continue reading “One Part Done”
This weekend kicked of the Christmas programs at BG’s dance studio. They are always cute, sweet and fun. What I did not quite anticipate was the fact that, with her ballet program at least, she would now be in a show with Seniors. Continue reading “All Sparkles and Feels”
This fudge recipe is super easy. I always make up 2 different kinds, peanut butter and chocolate espresso. It used to be full batches, but it makes so much, I finally figured out how to do a half batch. Continue reading “Easy Fudge”
I didn’t get the recipe up the last time I made these, so I made sure to get pics this time around.
I’ve already got the Chex mix made up. Or at least the first batch as that goes really quickly and I usually end up making a second. I plan on starting the rest probably tomorrow. Continue reading “Up Next… Baking!”
I got all my wrapping done today. Yay! That means I’ll have over a week of seeing my tree nice and full with presents underneath. The only thing left is whatever Hubby needs to do. It feels really good to be done, but… Continue reading “That’s A Wrap”
