Soft Gingerbread

Follow Me on Pinterest
Who doesn't love that moist, spicy cake called, Gingerbread? Add a dollop of fresh whipped cream or top with Microwave Lemon Curd or Tangerine Curd and you have a delightfully refreshing snack. Serve for dessert or, my favorite . . . breakfast with a yummy cuppa tea, coffee or ice cold milk!

Microwave Lemon Curd

Follow Me on Pinterest

When lemons are plentiful it's time to make Lemon Curd, and maybe Mini Lemon Curd Tarts!

Who doesn't love lemon curd? It's one of those pricey gourmet items few can afford to buy on a regular basis. I have an easy and fool proof recipe to share with you that's so much better than store bought!

I don't know what happened to the previous blog post I wrote, but I spoke about all the excitement of preparing a cozy bedroom complete with a fresh picked bouquet of sweet peas, a welcome basket full of Homemade Granola Bars, chocolates, fresh fruits, and an iced down cooler with fresh squeezed orange juice, Baked Rice Pudding and bottled water.

Harvesting Garden Seeds

Follow Me on Pinterest

Being able to save your own garden seeds year after year has many advantages. You save lots of money. You are not dependent on retailers for your seeds. You're getting pure seeds and not ones genetically engineered or covered in poisons and you can trade seeds with others. Make sure the seed packet has "heirloom" printed on the front. Hybrid seeds will not work!

Baby Steps . . . No-Knead Cottage Cheese Rolls

Follow Me on Pinterest

My present lifestyle has been evolving through most of my lifetime. I remember back in 5th grade having to give an oral presentation. My little 4x5 cards had my speech and the recipe for "Soft Molasses Cookies". I brought in a plate of cookies for the class to sample. Another girl brought in a bowl of cold oatmeal and shared on how to make oatmeal. I remember feeling so sorry for her!

I love living in Arizona! It's springtime for us in the desert. Our citrus trees are just beginning to blossom, so a delicate perfume hangs lightly in the air.

Will flew to Florida today for a business meeting. Two days of flying sandwiched between one actual day of meetings.
