{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

{Enjoy Life}

"The little things in life bring you the greatest pleasure" . That is my motto and so very true.  We celebrated Valentine's Day with a dinner for two at home.  We had such a simple one-dish meal that was so yummy and a glass of good old southern brewed ice tea. Sounds just sort of plain and simple to most but when you get to spend it with the one that you love the most...well, I will take the simple any day.  Meet Roxie . The newest addition to the family. My daughter Melissa surprised her two girls with sweet Roxy for Valentine's Day.  The girls were so excited and needless to say....Valentine's candy was on the bottom of the list after meeting Rozy.  These two cuties spent Valentine's day at Sea World. They had a WHALE of a time. I got to hear all about it at Sunday dinner. Of course, the oldest of the two loved the hot tub at the hotel about as good as she did the dolphins.  My oldest granddaughter was surprised by h

 February 14th is Valentines Day and a day that love and affection is celebrated.   For our family Valentines day is also a day to celebrate this man, my fatherinlove.   His 85th birthday is on Valentines day and we celebrated a little early with a birthday party. He was surrounded by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that celebrated him as he so deserved. He enjoyed every moment of his party and our family is truly blessed to have him. He has been blessed thus far with good health, good mind and works harder than most young men I know. He never complains and never misses anything that he thinks would be fun to do.  We as a family feel so blessed to have Papa Conner. He keeps our bunch straight! I talked my man into a quick selfie...which I can't seem to master selfies but here's to you all having a SWEET Valentines day.  May you each feel the love of Christ...There is NO greater love than the love of Jesus.  

{Cookies and Tea Anyone?}

I hope that your week has started off good for you.  It's a little nippy today but as Florida would have it, it is suppose to be in the 80's by Thursday.  http://www.kittyskozykitchen.com/ I wanted to share Kitty's cookies with you today. Only wish we could actually sit down and have one together. Kitty shared these on her blog so be sure to visit.  Kitty's cookies turned out a little more fancier than mine did as she rolled her cookies out and they were a perfect slice. Girls, I was in too big of a hurry to taste one so I did old fashion drop cookies. LOL! I had to improvise a little too. The recipe calls for the zest of an orange but I had tangerines. Worked out perfect and same orange taste.   The recipe also called for dried cranberries but I just so had a pack of the Craisins dried cranberries infused with cherry juice as I eat them for a snack sometimes. Not only did the batter look pretty but oh that zest smelled so good.
