My Favorite Bread Machine Recipe

As some of you may know, I love my crockpot and my bread machine.  They have saved me a lot of money and a lot of time.  Time better spent writing. 😉 For crockpot recipes I highly recommend Stephanie O’Dea. I love her Make it Fast, Cook it Slow recipe books. You can also find a lot of […]

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve posted. The Sci-Regency series is keeping me busy.

TV Trash

In honor of Fall, I thought I’d share my recipe for TV trash.  I have to make this every November.  My son and husband demand it, and my brother-in-laws try to come over after it’s made as well.  I believe it’s just the standard Chex mix recipe with a twist.  I got it from my […]

Puppy Spa Day

Today was puppy spa day at the Langley household.  Astrid hates puppy spa day.  She doesn’t like getting her nails done, she can’t stand getting a bath, and she barely tolerates getting brushed. She cries through the whole experience. It’s really pathetic and you’d think she was being abused.  Hiccup isn’t crazy about any of […]
