My menu is set and I need to shop now. Here’s my menu with links to the recipes I will use. Menu Holiday Cranberry Sauce – Simple but good! I once made one of those fancy cranberry sauces and it was too much for my taste. Truthfully, I like the stuff that comes out of the can too! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Holiday-Cranberry-Sauce/Detail.aspx Turkey Stuffing/Dressing – I use the recipe here. I add water chestnuts & pine nuts to it. When I worked at Houlihan’s in my younger years, the stuffing they made for their Thanksgiving dinner was so good and it had water...

My friend Amy gave me this idea years ago and we use it every year. When it snows and the kids want to play in the snow and you don’t… bring the snow inside for loads of fun. This is a picture from last year. FROM AMY:I don’t know about you but I wasn’t as excited about the snow as my kids were this morning. My children were convinced that it is time to sled ride and build snowmen. I tried to tell them that there isn’t enough snow. They weren’t convinced… .until we stood outside waiting for buses and then they realized they couldn’t go very far...

Okay, my name is Colleen and I am somewhat addicted to Facebook… truthfully, it is the blackhole in my life. For those of you that do not know what Facebook is, it is a FREE way to connect with the people in your world. Facebook incorporates a news feed type system where you can see what’s new with your friends, for example if they posted some pictures last night, or made a clever remark on the Facebook page of a friend you have in common. Overall it’s an online social tool. One can use Facebook to catch up, to waste time, or to organize an event , reconnect with a long lost friend, and...

My friend Nancy is one of those people that always knows the best places to go and see around our area. She is always up on what shop is coming in or what a certain place is like. I really respect her opinion on things and she always has one! I asked her to write a blog about a getaway she had with her husband because it sounded so great. After reading what she had to say and looking over the website, I was ready to pack and head out to The Golden Anchor with or without my hubby! FROM NANCY: Recently my husband and I went on a weekend trip to the mountains of West Virginia. Bob had spent the...

Guess what I am going to tell you about??? You guessed it, another craft that mommy sets-up and the kiddos do! With Perler Beads your kiddos can create really cool designs with little plastic beads that can be strung together, or melted together with an ordinary household iron (Mommy does the iron part)! This is probably best for ages 5 and up because it uses lots of fine motor skills… It’s something you need to try first to see if they can do otherwise I can see this craft being more frustration than fun. Still I found a way to get my 2 year old into these little beads too & I...
