Slow Cooker Beef For Use In Recipes



We are so busy these days and at times just plain tired.  Beef with a few ingredients can be added to a slow cooker and then used in many of your favorite recipes.  You can also cool and refrigerate for up to two days to use. I think if we take a little time to do these things it makes it easier to prepare meals for our family.  

Once you decide what you will be cooking you can prepare the other ingredients. Just store them in the fridge until use in the meal.  This will make fixing your meal a snap!  You can then work with peace of mind, knowing that your meal will be easy tonight. You may want to just relax or go shopping, it's up to you.

Cleaning Out Clearing Out!


Fabric Cabinet

When one reaches my age (I sound like my grandma) and is a sentimental pack-rat a huge amount of "stuff" has been collected. You know the sentimental, the extra for when you need it. So and so gave me this it would be rude to part with it, (you know I've only had it 10 years!). That kind of stuff. What to do what to do?

We Have a New Roof!



Hurricane Matthew left a path of destruction behind especially in some areas.  We weren't in the worst area for sure but it did leave some damage.  We now have a new roof and I wanted to show it to you. I know we're excited about a roof!  Drum roll please!

Sweet, Salty & Cinnamon Roasted Pecans Three Recipes



Who loves pecans?  Pea-Cans or Pea-Cons, no matter how you say it, are such a part of our Southern Heritage and traditions, For generations the ladies have sat around kitchen tables talking of special recipes to have.  The very special ones that they always have at Christmas time!  Sharing or not sharing whatever the case their most favorite.  The common denominator I've always found while standing around listening to them was one special ingredient and that would be the pecan!

Then the next step would be to go find a tree and start picking them up in the Fall.  Shelling (I'm not especially fond of this) would be the next thing to do.  Oh and most importantly not selling them all to the buyers!  Yes I remember hearing this a lot, "Wonder how much they're bringing this year?" That would be the pricing which seemed to change yearly.  Then hearing, "Well the pecans didn't do well this year." or "Now this is a pecan year the trees are loaded!"

I hope you're blessed with pecan trees in your yard, if not have friends or relatives that are!  I remember Grandmother Johnson having roasted pecans especially at Thanksgiving or Christmas time. No, I didn't get her recipe, if any relatives out there have it please share with me.  Today I share a simple, well three simple recipes!

Farmacy BeautyTrial


Farmacy Beauty sent three products for me to try and review.  This is exciting to try products that come from natural sources.  I am beginning today December 11th.  Let me tell you it is the perfect time for a trial.  The coldest night was last night and my skin is so very dry, chapped and itching.

Catie is Cooking Video and Newly Married Update!




I'm smiling and one of the reasons is this youngest of mine Catie.  She has never shown any interest in cooking until now.  She told her sister and me last week, "I don't know what's going on with me but I just want to cook."  I told her that she was just settling into married life and homemaking.  I also said sorry honey but you must take after your mama more than you think.
