{A Whole Lot of Baking, Cooking and Loaded Tea Making Going On}

  Happy Sunday Afternoon friends. Hope you've all had a great week. I've been doing some cooking, baking and tea making.  I've really been enjoying making and creating loaded teas, shakes, smoothies and coffee drinks. I have not been writing down my recipes but guess I need to start doing that so I can remember what all I done! LOL!  I try to stick with healthy and low calorie drinks and have so many different things that I want to try.   But, this is an easy way to get extra vitamins, or Collagen, or protein.  I drink lots of water and this helps to give me something to add a little extra taste.   Mercy, I'm having too much fun with these teas. Decided to do a little baking this weekend too for my family. Pumpkin muffins with brown sugar topping was on my list for sure. I had enough batter left for miniature pumpkin chocolate chip muffins so baked a batch of those. If that wasn't enough already, I baked up some peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips. Needless t


Have I told you all how much I enjoy sharing my Friday Favorites? Got some neat stuff to share this week girls! I LOVE THIS TABLESCAPE....Go and visit Nann's blog...   I love to see makeover ideas...this one stole my heart..loved it. Be sure to check out the BEFORE on her blog. How about this makeover...restoring a shutter into a shelf. Now get this next makeover...A trash basket and a cake stand. How fun would this next tablescape be? Does this look yummy to you? It does to me! And this adorable baby shower decoration was just that, adorable. Served as decor and then mom gets to keep blanket and diapers. And what about some breakfast pizza? I love pizza and breakfast any time of the day or night!


Am I the only person that lives by a calendar and a to-do list? I have a calendar on my personal computer, a calendar with a place to list my to-do's at the office, a hard back calendar that I carry with me daily, a calendar on my refrigerator and sticky notes everywhere! Whoever invented sticky notes is one RICH person... I have to have a calendar to keep up with things such as Doctor appointments (which seem to be more than less these days), dentist appointments, hair appointments (which I don't forget) Ha! Meetings and events to attend and well, you know the list. Your lists and appointments may be different than mine but you have them all the same. We live in a fast pace society that if we don't have a calendar and some sticky notes we are in trouble! Or at least I am! I find myself getting up in the middle of the night to make a note about something in fear that I will forget it! Now that may be a problem of another kind huh?  Now here is the deal....As I c

Tuesday Toots

Well it is time again to share a little Tuesday Toots....I want to share a baby shower with you today. My niece Hannah had a lovely shower and the decorations was the most absolute cutest I have seen in a while for a baby shower.  First meet my niece Hannah...due the end of May and having a little girl. Her name will be Charlotte Paris...I love that name! The cake was so cute...I thought at first the little shoes on the top was actually edible but they weren't. However, had a place on the bottom of the shoes to record the baby's date of birth, name and weight. Just adorable... The decor was really a "thrifty" thing to do. They served two purposes. Decoration and then for the baby to keep! How blanket, diapers, ribbon and tulle!  The little diaper cakes was so cute! Material, diapers, ribbon, shredded paper and flower! This was so adorable too! Diapers wrapped up with material & ribbon and topped with flowers. Two cute little

Chicken & Taters!

JOINING YVONNE AT STONE GABLE FOR "ON THE MENU MONDAY"...OVER @  I have a recipe to share with you today! I hope you enjoy it!  I can tell you now that while it is cooking, you will drool over the smell!  Chicken and Potato Roast Whole Chicken-get all the giblets out and wash good! Lift the skin up with a knife and dab butter under the skin the best you can. This helps to keep it moist. Next, drag out the spices. I love spices!!!!! Take EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and coat the chicken. Next sprinkle your spices. I used Lemon pepper, Natures Seasoning ( I use for everything) , Pampered Chef Crush Peppercorn and Garlic Rub (I love) and Lowery's Seasoning Salt (A must have in your kitchen). Then chop your potatoes up. I usually use the small red potatoes but all I had was the yellow. I like cooking potatoes with the peelings on if possible so I wash the potatoes and cut off any bad spots and then I


Ooh, I enjoy our Friday Favorites! I love this simple and yet so elegant to me... And isn't this the cutest idea...turning a mailbox into a bird feeder! Love this Spring wreath! Ooh, gotta try these breakfast pockets out! Looking for a cute shower idea? My friend Janice made this out of boxes and paper. The mom to be was so excited to see her child's name as part of the decoration! Looking for an easy appetizer? How about some cheese balls? Looking for a teacher gift idea? Love this inside garden basket idea. Would love to try this with some herbs! Like to sew? This is the cutest and easiest little dress to make. I have made quite a few dresses by this pattern. Need a shower idea for maybe an extra dessert? This looks yummy! Pink L
