sugar cookie bars

DD had a sports awards night to attend at school, and we were to take a dozen cookies. I saw Sugar Cookie Bars at Anissa’s Kitchen and decided to give them a try. They are also posted on My Baking Addiction. Click on her link to see how cute hers are! A little more trouble […]

rosemary crackers

I found a recipe for Crisp Rosemary Flatbread at Smitten Kitchen and decided to try it as crackers. The recipe is from the July 2008 issue of Gourmet magazine. I made a few small changes to the original. Rosemary Crackers 1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary (preferably fresh) 1 teaspoon baking […]

just a dusting

We woke up to a little bit of snow this morning. DH took all the photos, except the last one, just before 8:00 a.m. I took the last one just before 10:00 a.m. Front yard… East yard… Fenced garden… The daffodils started the day bowed to the ground. By afternoon, you would never have known […]

earth hour

DD was excited about joining in Earth Hour this evening, so we turned the lights out at 8:30 p.m., and played a game of Star Wars Trivia by candle light. I won. 🙂 ~~Rhonda

“be careful driving home in the rain”…

…said my 11 year old when I dropped her off at a friend’s house this morning. 🙂 Practicing her mommy skills, I guess. Dogwood branches in the rain…if it weren’t so chilly out, I’d use my tripod to get a prettier picture. Took this one as I stood under the carport, before dashing into the […]

spring with a chance of snow

Today was beautiful. Sunny with flowers. I even mowed the back yard for the first time this season. But…Tomorrow is supposed to be rainy with snow in the evening. St. Louis is predicting 3″ with more to the west and north. Thankfully we are in the opposite direction. Perhaps it will miss us. Here are […]

apple upside down cake

This is SO good! I wanted to make something this afternoon, then decided not to. Then DS#2 called to say he was running by this evening after taking DDIL to meet her family for the weekend. So DD and I sprang into action and made an apple upside down cake recipe that I found online. […]

made it outside for a little while

Another beautiful day, though I wore a light jacket. The driveway is lined with daffodils and the redbud trees are busting out all over the yard. There are more than 20 of them in bloom. Looking north from the veggie garden toward the front yard. We (OK…DH) planted 13 broccoli plants, 2 Brussels sprout plants, […]

flower pasta

I’ve had these cute little pasta shapes sitting in the pantry for several months. Today, I visited Nummy Mummy’s site and she had made them as mac and cheese and even served them in cute little flower pots. You gotta go see. Very cute! And give her recipe a try. It sounds so good! I […]
