Copy Cat KFC Biscuits

Posted by on May 31, 2012 in Savory, Sweet, Treats, Uncategorized | 9 comments

It was too chilly to swim here yesterday, so I cleaned- watched the kids put on a puppet show or two and then I got in the mood to bake.  I threw dinner in the crockpot, so I could spend my time on the ‘important’ stuff- like biscuits and cookies! The biscuits I made were SUPER SIMPLE, and when I tried them- I seriously imagined myself making them again and again- because they were so YUMMY.  The first thing I thought of was that they tasted EXACTLY like those yummy Kentucky Fried Chicken biscuits that I usually dip in butter and honey….but better, if that’s possible. Then, I imagined slathering them with sausage gravy- can you tell I like down-home country foods?  I just think there’s a time for ‘city’ food (ahi tuna-yum) and a time for ‘country’ food–...

Alexis’ Stamp Set

Posted by on May 26, 2012 in Uncategorized | 12 comments

Hey everyone and Happy Saturday!  I just wanted to drop in quick to tell you about the stamp set that my sweet 7 year old daughter created- and since I am one proud momma, I had to share with all of you! It’s called Butterfly Kisses- and since her mom and dad own Pink by Design, when she wanted to make a stamp set- we made it happen.  But, I wanted her to use all of her own writing and drawings- partly because then I can keep them forever–even as she grows.  It’s kinda like when parents used to bronze their child’s baby shoes–except for the scrapbooker 😉 She wanted to raise money for a Kindle Fire- but somehow she has already raised the money for that by, fixing grandma’s hair, painting nails, doing extra chores, and birthday money....
