Thursday Thoughts – Spring Break Essentials

Spring break is days away and many folks head over to where there is lots of sun, sand and sea.  In my case; however, we usually have a staycation and enjoy local areas here in Texas.

Each week, I try to carve out time for "Mama Spa Time"!  What is an DIY Spa Day?  Well, you may not know what it is if ... View Post

Simplicity is key for me.  I don't like to over-decorate or have anything too busy. ... View Post

Jalapeño Poppers

    What is a popper?  Poppers are jalapeño peppers that have been hallowed, stuffed with a mixture of cheese, bacon, spices, meat and then heated. My family loves hot peppers, salsa and anything spicy.  I must always have some kind of peppers in my kitchen as I make something spicy almost daily.  My brother-in-law used to make these for my sister when he lived and she loved ...
