Which Would You Choose?

H a p p y H o l i d a y s People are getting busier everywhere, if you haven't noticed, it's Christmas time. Yes, so it's time to do Christmas cards again. Well, I had a few pictures to choose from. Out of these pictures, which do you think we used as the Christmas card picture?

I Love My LED Book Light

(not exactly like mine, but really close)

I found these book lights about a year ago. Yes, I know they have been around much longer. But last year I realized that this was one way I could still read in bed when Hubby had gone to sleep. Hubby has always gone to bed much earlier than I ever have and likes all lights off and sounds off, but this light does not bother him. Now having some "me" time and being able to relax at the end of a day with a good book has been awesome! I have been able to read so much more over the last year than I ever have before! Kudos to whoever came up with this grand invention!

Need to start up again

It's time that I update, before the new year comes.

I have been reminded this past week a few times about my love for cooking and I realized I haven't blogged any recipes or anything about cooking this whole time, at least as far as I can remember.

I do love looking through cookbooks and finding new recipes and trying them. I have also loved the amazing Internet with great search engines. I have found many recipes of things that I have tried and wanted to make. The girls are actually loving looking through cookbooks, right now Superstar wants to be a cook when she grows up.

What better way than to add a favorite that I found since we moved to Tennessee.
(I have found a microwave brownie recipe that could be made in minutes, but I thought that would make things a little harder as I was trying to stay away from chocolate, so I haven't tried that yet.)

This one was found on

Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

Ingredients: (I usually double this recipe, because I make really big biscuits and everyone always wants them, it only makes 12 extremely big ones when I double it)

2 cups Bisquick. baking mix ( I googled how to make a homemade bisquick mix, because I almost never have pancake mix)
2/3 cup milk (I always have to add more milk)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese -- shredded
1/4 cup margarine or butter -- melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 450. Mix baking mix, milk and cheese until soft dough forms; beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 min. or until golden brown. Mix margarine and garlic powder; brush over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet. Serve warm. Makes 10-12 biscuits.
