Homemade Almond Joy :O) Yummy


I found this recipe as well on www.allrecipe.com I found that if you mix the coconut batter first freeze the batter to make it hold together better then roll in the melted chocolate . I made the mix first tried to roll it it was VERY soft/gooey.

Holiday Time

Currently been working on holiday gifts every year I make crochet kitchen tea towels for my mom. This is what my grandma use to make my mom every year. However years ago she passed away so I took up a crochet class just to learn to make this gift for my mom every year at Christmas time.

I am currently using this example pattern & instructions from
Crochet Spot as the pattern book I purchased I have misplaced.

I also recently found another crochet pattern & instructions from another place & I have been working this concept out I had to change a few things but will post one of mine soon..but here is a link
Cocoa Cream Craft Closet

I loved this idea and it was simple enough I could do it however I found that the ring got limp/stretches out too easy so with the assistance of a bracelet I was able to crochet around it and make this project really quick.

From Walmart I purchased 20 metal adult bangle bracelets that I got for $6.00= 30 cents a piece is not bad I don't think...

Life Update

My car has been fixed I picked up yesterday.
I have decided that I need to clean my car out since having a rental I realize how bad my car really was until I got the rental and I only need 1 box to keep all my must have items in the car for both daily use at work and personal life.
Plus 1 extra item my trusty air compressor pump that comes in very handy
I have saved alot of people including myself time changing a tire by just pumping it up enough to get it to a repair shop quickly.

Over the last week I have been feeling under the weather & going to bed early trying to fight getting sick must be something going around. By 4-5 in the afternoon I am ready for bed so we have been eating early or doing quick meals since I have no desire to cook..

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos from AR

Price $ 5.00 to make this meal since I had spice on hand

$1 - sweet potato
$1 - tortillas
$2- Shredded Cheese
$1 -can beans

I cut the recipe in 1/2 as it was only for me and I just wanted to make sure I liked it first before making a whole 12 servings and throwing it out..
I used 1 can of black beans only due to what I had in the house trying to make sure not to spend Extra $$ . To make 8 taco size mini burritos it cost me $1.00 for the sweet potato w/ about 8 more the same size if I had more Tortillas so I will freeze the mix for a later meal for me :O)

Verdict on the Recipe: LOVED IT!!!! Will be making this again soon

Kitty Update

Well over the last week the kitty has gotten really sick she lost 1 lb she only weighted 2.0 lbs. She had to stay over night Saturday at the vets for IV for fluids, check-up and to get a stool sample as she has really bad Diarrhea and slept 24/7.

Well we brought her home Sat w/
antibiotic/ parasite medicine and special vitamins and special kitty food. Well this morning she is getting sick again and is not drinking and she has bad Diarrhea again. They did say she may get sicker before she gets better.

We called the vet this am and off to the store to get her pedialyte and guess what Baby chicken food.She needs the liquid and the baby food to try and calm the stomach...

Eggplant Au Gratin

I used the homegrown eggplants I got from my mom to try and make the above recipe from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Eggplant-Au-Gratin/Detail.aspx . The only changes to the recipe was I cut and salted the eggplant to remove bitterness and moisture and I placed it in this larger bowl as I don't have ramekins. Plus who can get a meal out of a small ramekin?
I liked the recipe idea the only thing I didn't like as the seedy taste... it was like eating sunflower seeds in your Spaghetti :O)

Tuesday, September 29, 2009



I tried a new recipe yet again. I decided how hard is it to make homemade croutons? Since the cheapest bag of croutons at Wal-Mart is 98 cents.I figured for a $1.00 or less I can get 2 bags of croutons. Minus the additives and MSG.
Well after surfing the net I found this quick recipe from
http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/croutons.htm I had purchased a day old bag of Bruschetta style bread cut them up placed in to a bowl with a lid dropped in the spice & oil and shaked well spread onto Parchment lined cookie sheet baked 20 mins and They turned out great even my picky daughter is eating them. She eats bags of croutons like people eat potato chips.

Update on OAMC MEALS

Well as life goes I got off track but was able to find a way to keep the concept working in a smaller idea for us since my budget got tighter.
I purchase meat on clearance and freeze it then plain meals around that but I will also purchase 2 lbs of Italian Ground turkey on clearance and then come home and quickly drop the items I keep on hand for making Spaghetti Sauce and will drop in the crockpot at noon with the browned me and freeze for later use or for dinner that night.
I freeze the leftovers (for next week or 2 weeks from now) That way we don't get over whelmed with Spaghetti back to back. I also will add extra stuff to the 2nd time for example I may add to plain Spaghetti noodles green onions and cheese and bake in the oven.

Recently I made 3lbs of Sloppy Joes had them with Mac & Cheese to allow for freezing the leftover Sloppy Joes for later use I have 4 cups for another quick dinner later in the month.

Creative Spice Rack


Due to lack of space and I use alot of spices. I was able to get more organized by doing this plus it is out of the way and when it is time to make out my grocery list all I need to do is open the door and check the pocket. Plus this will seriously STOP me from OVER purchasing stuff. I also was able to take all my packets of mixes and place them into a long box ( like a shoe box but longer which will allow me to stop buying this as well. You see every thing in my mobile home was in a zillion different places stuck in this little cabinet/ this shelf over the sink etc now ever this is Finding it's HOME.

Spicey Sweet Red Pepper Hummus

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus from All Recipes.com
I have attached the link to the recipe below

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

Trying to make a few new lunch ideas and this the first idea.
It went together really quick the longest part was getting the ingredients together.


Last week I had a life flashes before your eyes experience with a few co-workers we were almost hit by a truck who had got in an accident right next to our vehicle this caused the truck to spin and came right at us. We had to run to get out of the way. It got me thinking about lots of different things..

  1. What would happen if I had got hurt?
  2. Would my work cover this health costs?
  3. What if I had been seriously hurt and couldn't move/walk?
We were very lucky however the lady in the truck was trapped in the vehicle and seriously injured. We learned later that the lady died at the hospital shortly after arriving there.

This got me thinking about alot of other things like what am I thankful for?

I had the best friend in the world even if it was only for a short time
I have a great daughter who is a senior this year
I have a fiancee' who loves me for me even when I am crazy or silly which he tells me I am all the time.

Welcome to August and Back to School Time

As the back to school time planning has started I have been working on ideas for breakfast on the go/Lunches for school/Simple Dinners

With a Waffle or Pancake recipe and a little time on the weekend morning between 0500-0600 before the rest of the house gets up turn out 2-6 batches of them to freeze.
I made 2 batches this past weekend and that should last me to next Saturday however I realized if I have made more then I would only have to do it every other weekend which would save me time when I am busy on the other weekends.

This Classic Waffle Mix is very simple and quick you also could pre-make the dry ingredients in Ziploc bags & making up several bags for quick pour and whip up batches by just adding the wet ingredients.

Classic Waffle or Pancake Batter

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons white sugar

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups warm milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; beat until blended.
  5. Ladle approximately 1/3 of a cup the batter into a preheated waffle iron.
  6. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Serve immediately or allow to cool to freeze in Ziploc bags
