Just a tip -- Non-exploding frosting

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Now that I have your attention...

*LOL!*

Seriously though, when I've made frosting in the past, I've always had a powdered sugar mess all over my kitchen. This is because I don't have a cover for my mixer so as I add the sugar, it tends to poof out all over the place. I got smart this Thanksgiving though...

Kat's cheatin' beef stew

Saturday, November 27, 2010






Hey guys! I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know normally I'd be posting Thanksgiving dinner leftover recipes but I made this stew last week and wanted to share the recipe with y'all. And yes, yesterday we ate leftovers. But last night it was 30° and this stew would have hit the spot! I call it a cheatin' stew because you just throw it all together & it's practically done.

Thanksgiving switch-up: Classic baked corn pudding

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Every year for Thanksgiving I basically make the same meal with one or two exceptions. For example, I sometimes make potato salad instead of mashed potatoes or I'll use a different stuffing recipe. This year I was going to make my corn fritters (the non-spicy version...so super delicious with maple syrup!) instead of corn-on-the-cob but then I came across the following recipe on the Betty Crocker website and decided that this is it!! (I'll show you a picture of mine after Thanksgiving.)

The Natural Fertility Workshop has reopened!

Thursday, November 18, 2010


A little while back I told you about Donielle and her workshop that helps you conceive using healthy living & nutritious food. Now don't start thinking that this is only for people who want to conceive. Healthy living & nutrition are an important part of your entire pregnancy, from conception to birth, and this course has so much wonderful information!

Donielle's workshop has reopened NOW! And if you sign up for her Monthly Newsletter you'll receive a coupon code in your email for 30% off enrollment in her course! Hurry though, this offer is only good until November 21st!

Here's what Donielle's site says:

This one-of-a-kind 12 week multi media workshop will be a breath of fresh air in an otherwise depressing world of unfortunate statistics. With these classes you will learn:
  • How to cleanse your body of toxins
  • Why common products you use may be contributing to your infertility
  • What exercises can help you prepare your body for conception and pregnancy
  • How to pin point ovulation
  • What to eat…..and what not to eat
  • Alternative treatments for infertility
But most importantly you will learn how to conceive and go on to have a healthy pregnancy and a truly healthy baby!

While I am in the Grandma stage of my life, I know many people who would benefit greatly from this course and highly recommend it! And yes, in all honesty, as an affiliate of Donielle's I do earn a commission if you enroll in her course through my site, but that's not why I'm telling you about it. I personally had many conception issues when I was in the Mommy stage of my life and I wish I had a course like this to help me back then. I think it's an awesome course!

So what are you waiting for? Click on the button above, the button below or the button on my sidebar and start on your journey to having a beautiful baby!
