Fruit Dip Recipe


What's fruit without dip??

This isn't something you would want to make all the time. It soooo good but it might defeat the purpose of eating fruit lol.


To make it mix one jar of Marshmallow Fluff (13 ounces) and two 8 ounce bricks of cream cheese.


That's it!! How easy?!?!  And super yummy!!

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping in!!

Stash Bee Quilt


I finally finished my Stash Bee Quilt! I was so lucky to have a great group of gals sending me blocks, I also received a few from outside the group to complete this quilt.  I would like to thank everyone who helped make it!! I think it turned out amazing. I had asked bee members to make wonky star blocks and wonky log cabin blocks.  I had enough blocks to make one quilt for charity and one quilt to keep. This one that I finished first will be going to a new home at some point. I would like to keep it in my community so I thought I would see if a local organization had someone that could use it.
 

And the back...
 Perfect size!



I absolutely love it. It has four 12.5 inch blocks across and five 12.5 inch blocks down. I added a border and it now measures approximately 52 inches by 64 inches.
I quilted it with straight lines about 1/4 inch apart. After it was washed it became so crinkly and cuddly. I am sure at its new home it will be loved.

Thanks for stopping in and thanks to all that helped!!

Bloggers Quilt Festival #2

The second quilt I chose to add to the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side is my Aqua Red Quilt. I am placing this quilt in the Throw Quilt Section.


 
I made this quilt this past winter and I just love the way the colors pop in the snow.

 
This quilt measures approximately 53 inches by 62 inches and was made using Michael Miller Aqua Red fabrics.
Quilted by me with random circles.
There was no pattern... I just made four sampler blocks and added borders.

Thanks for stopping in and don't forget to check out all the great quilts during the Bloggers Quilt Festival!!

Busy Moms Recipes


My husband has been gone quite a bit lately but there's plenty of people around to keep me company. For those of you that don't know I live on family land and my parents are next door and my sister is just a pasture away. We eat dinner together all the time... like almost every night. This week has been super busy for my sister so  I have been doing the cooking this week and thought I would share a couple recipes. The first recipe isn't mine but I don't know who to give the credit to... my mom found it floating around facebook some time ago.

 
Pulled Pork Sandwiches:
one pork roast 2 pounds or so
1/2 cup club soda
1/4 cup brown sugar
bbq sauce
 
Place roast I crock pot and pour club soda over it. Add brown sugar and mix it around a little. Cook for 8-10 hours, shed and add your favorite bbq sauce. We make and can our own bbq sauce but if I give you the recipe then I'd have to kill you lol. Its my dads prized recipe :)
 
 
 
Shredded Chicken Sandwiches:
 
One large bag of raw chicken tenderloins (no skins, they come frozen in a bag at Kroger)
1/2 package of stove top (savory herb is what I used)
1 sleeve of ritz crackers
1 can of cream of chicken - 10.5 ounce 
1 can of cream of celery - 10.5 ounce
1 can chicken broth - 14.5 ounce
 
 
Cook your chicken in boiling water then shred. Crush the crackers and add them along with all the other ingredients to a crockpot mix and let cook for an hour or two. I always put a tablespoon or two of butter in too... call me Paula lol.
 
It was a hit after softball at my house this week!
