LadyBug Lady Bug Novelty Kitchen Timer

Ladybug 60 Minute Kitchen Cook Egg Timer Cooking Baking*Ladybug 60 Minute Kitchen Cook Egg Timer Cooking BakingYou have the plain white egg timers that really don't do a lot for your kitchen or you can place a ladybug in a given spot and create a little interest. I think of any room in the house, the kitchen should be the most interesting. In our house, I think that we spend more time there than any other room. Might as well make it as interesting/warm and inviting as possible.

Sunbeam 6131 Hot Shot Hot Water Dispenser

I was thinking about this for a mug of hot chocolate, but then I began to think of all the other uses... like sachets of oatmeal. Yes, the day is going to come when we will be back to hot cereals! Actually, I'm almost looking forward to it!

Pizza Coming Up!

It's hard to believe, but everyone in my family likes a different kind of pizza. My daughter has to have veggie with thin crust. My husband prefers thin crust but with meat and I love deep dish with a little bit of everything. Okay, my all time favorite would have to be pineapple and pepperoni, but I'm not fussy lol... just make it deep dish and one pizza will pretty much last me a week. So I thought I would go looking to see just how many pizza gadgets there are out there. Sometimes its easier to just make your own... and cheaper too.

But Cookies are Okay ;)

When my kids were little, they loved any kind of cookie if it was shaped. That lead me to the collecting of cookie cutters... and I had zillions of them. It even got to the point where I could even decorate my kitchen with them. Really!! I had them displayed on the wall, in jars... you name it, I had cookie cutters there. No one could ever say that my kitchen was boring!!

Today's Theme... Crockpots or Slow Cookers

I can't believe it, but the weather has taken a turn for the worse... I'm actually thinking about bringing out my crockpot... or at least getting it ready. Being only the middle of August... the cooler weather can't be here already can it?? Please tell me that summer isn't over!

In Love with Strawberry Ice Cream!

I think that this is my Mom's second favorite flavor of ice cream. Her first choice has always been maple walnut, but if that wasn't available, she was always happy with strawberry. Mine turned out to be Maple Walnut too. Funny the things that are passed on to you!

Now take a look at the texture of that ice cream. That's the way I remember it looking when I was a kid. Just doesn't look like that anymore :(

Monday's the Day I Get What I Want

Can you imagine just how much money you would save each summer if you could make ALL of your own ice cream... or maybe it's just me?? Our family goes through gallons of the stuff. It's just a really easy and inexpensive (or so I thought) dessert to finish a summer meal.
