A Day at The Springs and The Beach Part 2

Last month I wrote about 3 different springs in our area of Central Florida and one of the local colleges.  After leaving the last spring we headed to the Daytona Beach area to spend the night and head to an appointment in the area the next day.  

A Day at The Springs and The Beach Part 2

Our first stop was to see the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse We didn’t go to the top (203 steps) and just decided to sit back and look at Florida’s tallest lighthouse.  The sky was crystal clear that day and what a beautiful site the light house is.

Monday Moments with Yummy Football Food

Its a couple weeks into football season and on the occasion and depending on the football game, hubby and I have to treat ourselves by having some, what we call, football food.  Most of the time its BBQ or some kind of appetizers.  Its like tailgating in the house.  Football food always makes the worse games played better. I love making nachos and when they are Loaded Nacho's, it makes them even better.  I saw the name of this dip and fell in love.  If you are … Read More

A Healthy Way of Life

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I was 21, my father had a massive heart attack.  We were told it was a miracle he survived and thank goodness someone was there at the time to get him to the ER.  I was also a few months pregnant and getting larger and larger by the second.  As time went by and hearing that heart disease runs in the family and gaining over 50 pounds while being pregnant, I took action.  It was time to start moving this body and eating better.   First step was to figure out what … Read More

Peanut Butter Honey Cookies and Bakeit Fun Giveaway

pbcookies600

I have a cookie monster that lives in my house.  Not a cute little one, but a full grown man.  You bake a batch of cookies and they are gone before you know it.  I don't make them often because of Mr. Cookie Monster and the other fact that we don't need that extra sugar around staring at us.  But when I do make him some cookies, there is only one choice, Peanut Butter Honey Cookies. What a classic cookie to make and with a twist of using the new honey peanut butter. … Read More

Freezing Green Peppers

peppers600

Does anyone need any green peppers?  I was afraid after losing all my squash and cucumbers and just getting a few tomatoes out of my garden this year, that nothing else would produce.   I was wrong. I love being wrong in cases as this. I planted 3 Italian version of peppers, which means these grow long and skinny in April.  And I also grew 6 plants of regular round green peppers a neighbor gave me in May.   These plants have been just booming with produce. And still are. … Read More
