Declutter and Organize Your Decorations
Along with the fun of decorating for the holidays, there was always a bit of dread for having the tackle the unruly, messy and downright ugly corner of the storage room where they "Christmas stuff" resides. A sad disaster of mismatched boxes, dusty broken plastic totes and water damaged cardboard boxes.
I ran across this video over the weekend and I was amazed. I had no idea how easy it was to open a can without a can opener. You never know when this knowledge might come in handy, so I thought I would share it.

Have a lovely day,
My grandmother made the most luscious cake during the holidays. It was pretty unusual, I have never seen the recipe anywhere. The three layer cake was made with molasses and instead of frosting it had this "to die for" glaze that she put between layers and then poured on the top layer, so it ran over the sides and dribbled down the outside of the layers.
After my grandma passed away, we were cleaning out her home and I ran across her recipe box and while looking through her recipes, I ran across the one for this fabulous holiday cake.
A friend of mine has a really good blog called My Family Exercise. It centers on Children's Health and how to help your child be more healthy in a fun way.
The lastest blog post on his blog fit perfectly in with the theme of my blog, so I asked him if I could put a link in and share it with you all. I hope you enjoy it!
Homemade Ring Toss Game
I really love making meals in a crock pot. It's so convenient to just toss in the ingredients, turn it on and walk away. Did you ever wonder if there was a method for converting regular recipes into crock pot recipes? Well, it's not an exact science, but I have come up with some pretty safe guidelines for conversion from oven time to crock pot time.
