Amazon Tutorial

I really debated about posting anything about Amazon, afraid that it would appear to be an advertisement. I will be honest and say that anytime you go to the Amazon site through a link on my blog I do earn a commission on what you purchase. I say that as a disclaimer, not as an(…)

Flash Mob – Resurrection Sunday

Flash Mob – Resurrection Sunday

I LOVE videos of flash mobs!  They are so facinating to me and I’d love to participate in one… that is one goal for sometime in my life!  I love watching people faces, their expressions and joy as they dance.  And the spectators who happen to be in the right place at the right time!(…)

Poor Man’s Crab Cakes

Poor Man’s Crab Cakes

This is one of our newest recipes; but is quickly becoming one of our favorites. We have had it multiple times and it’s just as good if not better each time! Who can afford to have crab cakes every few weeks! Certainly not us! 😉 I’m sure that is true of so many!  The Old(…)

Coconut Oil

Coconut Bread

Coconut Bread

We love bread!  And we miss bread!  Because Brian isn’t supposed to be having grains I’ve been trying to remove it from most of what we eat on a daily basis.  I didn’t realize how much grain, starches, and sugars we eat until I started removing it.  We didn’t regularly have desserts, I don’t buy(…)

A MUST see – Virginia Bluebells
