Have a great weekend and see you on Monday!!!
I thought I’d share some fun ideas we have done over the years to enjoy Halloween in a family-friendly way. If you scroll through my posts the past few weeks, you will find all kinds of ideas such as the Halloween Buffet Table and family-friendly themed food.
SO Many great posts last week, but I really liked these one by Sherri at http://www.luvabargain.com How to Make Homemade Butter — this is SO COOL! A great project with the kids too.
If you link up through my site be sure to leave me a comment you did AND what you linked up so I can feature you on my fb page and maybe HERE next week!
Let’s see what y’all can bring this week! Carrie
Hey did you see my book has FOUR 5 star reviews now! It’s called, A Mother’s Shadow and I hope you’ll check it out here on the side bar. A huge thank you to all who are reading it! I would love to hear from you as I get ready to begin the next in the series.
I have struggled with making caramel apples for years, actually decades. I do not like to bite into it and have the caramel peeling off, and finding it is thick and hard. Nor do I like it when the caramel all runs off the apple either. I want a nice layer of soft, yummy caramel covering the apple, and this is it! I’ve made homemade, but that can be tricky and I want one my kids can make that’s fail-proof. So I looked around — again — and happened on JamieCooksItUp and thought I’d give her’s a try. She really nailed it! I tweaked it a bit, and here you go with the easy way to successfully make caramel apples.
Last year my practical joker son Derek surprised us with 82 pumpkins IN my house.… You can read about it HERE
Sssoooo, Stan and I just couldn’t let that be the last word now could we!?! Some weeks later, this is what we did, click HERE (So grateful for a very good natured daughter-in-law, Tawni, who gets caught in the fray, lol.)

Time for family get-together FUN! Posted last year, but great frosting recipe and easy to follow tutorial are worth seeing again. Thanks so much Sharon for your time and talents!
My daughter-in-law Ashley helped me set up the buffet table and it looked grand! Thank you so much Ash for your time and very cool decorations!
On Halloween night, family and friends drop by to show off their kids, or grand kids costumes, or just to visit for a spell.
It is usually traditional to have chili, soup, stew or even a pizza decked out to look like a pumpkin. But I wanted something that as family and friends came, they could make their own food and to their liking. Some of my kids do not like soups or pasta (I know, something went horribly wrong, cuz those are my favs), so a panini bar fits the bill just right.
Stop in to see what we made and maybe get a few ideas of your own!
Do you need a last minute treat, or something fun for the entire family to make? This is your answer!
These bite sized S’mores have all the components you love, and easy to make too. Put a few together in a cellophane bag for a gift or a thinking of you.
Continuing with Cancer Awareness month our feature is Miss Tuft. She is an amazing woman with a tremendous story of courage and strength to share with us. We are so grateful she is willing to share her experiences; here is Missy’s story:
Can you taste a slice of this AMAZING cake filled with chunks of tart apple wrapped in a moist tender cake? Drizzle with a warm sweet caramel sauce over the top — and there you have food for angels.
Here is another recipe I created because of my sister Jody. She came to my house one day and said we had to go try this hot cider she had at Starbucks, and that I must figure out the recipe.
This is my version and we really enjoy it. You can make it ahead and it only gets better. Perfect for cold nights to warm you through and through.
I am so lucky to have one of the nicest ladies you would ever meet living in my neighborhood. Her name is Brenda (pictured on the left) and her sister’s name is Becky (pictured on the right). Brenda and a friend began a campaign to raise money for her sister Becky when she was diagnosed with cancer. Thank you so much Brenda for sharing your story with us. Continue reading
