Eat Your Breakfast Today!!


Such good advice!

What did you have for breakfast today?

I had half a sandwich. Kind of strange but it filled me up. ;-)

Happy Tuesday!

Eat Your Breakfast Today!!

Lets face it…Eating breakfast is the most important meal. It begins your metabolism earlier in the day, can help you lose weight, gets you energized, and is a great way to start your day! The key is to eat a well balanced breakfast. Always include fruit, if you choose cereal eat one with high fiber, if you choose yogurt, eat a low-fat or non fat one. If you want eggs in the morning, go for a hard boiled egg. Begin your day the right way.

Top 5: Spring Cowls – Pattern Links


***Aren’t these pretty?***

Cowls are a great take-along project and such a nice fashion accessory.

A lot of them are great for knitters who are just getting started too.

Happy Weekend and Knitting! :-)

On the Menu This Weekend ;-)

 I REALLY ♥ to cook, but sometimes it’s nice to have a day off from the kitchen, completely.

That’s where Joe comes in. ;)

When he’s home more on the weekends, he usually makes at least one supper and also a “mean” fry-up (yummm….) for Sunday morning breakfast.

I just sit back with my knitting needles on the couch and wait for my plate to arrive! ;)

This weekend, he’s going to be making Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Lasagna from one of my fav cookbooks:

The Vegetarian Slow Cooker by Judith Finlayson

Click the link above to read my review of this book. And  for the yummy Sweet Potato Lasagna recipe, courtesy of the author and publisher of this book. 

It’s a very easy lasagna recipe to make with an intriguing blend of flavors.

And as with all slow-cooker recipes, it’s great to just “set it and forget it” until it’s time to chow-down!!! Gotta ♥ that too. 

Happy Cooking and Weekend!

Carrot Cake Revisited ;-)




I’m not much of a dessert fan but I do love this cake! 


PS: If you click through to read the rest of the post, you will see the updated version with a couple of new things added. The original post is showing up here but not when you click through to read more.

Gotta love WP!!!  

Another quirk I just found out about when posting with WordPress and in this case, reblogging.

I thought with the fall’s garden harvest in full swing, this might be a good time to share this carrot cake“keeper” again.

Yes, it really does taste as good as it looks.

Let me know if you give this cake (and hopefully my icing too) recipe a try. If you and your family like carrot cake, you are going to be loving this one, I’m sure!

As with most recipes, I did a bit of tweaking and in the case of the cake, made half the recipe (measures can be adjusted right on the Allrecipe site, I used 8 servings instead) and made the following easy but rich and creamy icing to finish the cake…

Book Launch: Laughing AT the Grim Reaper!

I’m smiling today! :)

Happy Reading and Weekend.

Can anyone help with some simple HTML code?

I am just finishing up my newest book for CreateSpace and Kindle and THIS time, I am trying to “ace” how to add some simple HTML code to my book description. I have tried over and over today to make it work, without success. :(

If anyone can help with this, I’d be oh, so grateful!

It’s only a few paragraphs of text to do and if you are familiar with using HTML, I’m probably missing something soooo simple but I just can’t find what it is.

CreateSpace keeps prompting me to “close the b. (as in bold tag) but I’ve gone over the text several times, checked there was no spaces to remove, but it still doesn’t work.

If anyone can help, I’ll be sure to send you a free copy (print or ebook) of the book when it’s completed. I’m not going to mention the title right now but it is an inspirational book, I think a lot of my readers will enjoy! :)

Thanks so much if you can help! :)

On the Menu Tonight! :-)


I’ve got a  lot of typing to get through today so I needed something relatively fast to make for supper tonight. 

Haven’t had veggie burgers for a while so I’m making some of those (from the freezer) along with homemade:

Bread-Machine Rosemary Flax Buns (click for complete recipe)

to go with them.

That way, most of the work is done for me and not too much time in the kitchen required to complete these yummy buns. ;)

This is a popular recipe that was first featured in my cookbook: Not Just for Vegetarians. My “go to” recipe, for all kinds of buns, not just for burgers. Easily adaptable for vegans too. Hope you enjoy some soon!

What’s on the menu at your place tonight? Do share!

Happy Cooking and Week! :)
