YOU ARE THE SWEETEST!!!!!!! Another Recipe!!!!!!!!


Oh are such sweet ladies.............while I was at the cafeteria today there sure was a party going on..........thank you so much. New subscribers...........welcome......and new followers............welcome to you also! Talk about fun..........the sweetness that you left, was such a blessing. You are making the party such a delight. I hope that you who have left comments will go and visit some of the other ladies blogs.  Also thank you to those who put us up on your blogs and facebook. You are the sweetest.

I loved all your tutorials ideas that you would love to see. Super great ideas. I will be sure to try them in the coming year. It will help me better serve you. Also thank you for leaving comments over at Gooseberry Patch. They work so hard to write wonderful books and it was so nice to encourage them. I am sure they have been blessed by you today!!!!!! I know I have.

While at work we made up another recipe from the Mom's Very Best Recipes Cookbook, (if you like you can order from our side bar and we will receive 15% off for adopting Vitaliy). We thought we would try it out before St. Patricks Day. Talk about num!!!!!!!! You must try........and see the color looks just like that. It is so EASY.

Easy Pistachio Cake
18-1/2 oz. pkg. yellow or white cake (we used white)
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. oil
5 eggs beaten
2 3.4-oz. pkgs. instant pistachio pudding mix
Opt. 1/2 c. chopped nuts

In large bowl, blend together dry cake mix, milk, water, oil and eggs until smooth. Add dry pudding mix; stir well. Mix in nuts, if using. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13"x9" baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick; bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes if needed. Cool completely; spread cream cheese icing over cooled cake. Serves 12 to 15.

Cream Cheeses Icing:
8 oz. pkg. ream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 t. vanilla extract
16 oz. pkg. powdered sugar
3 to 4 drops green food coloring (we did not use)
3/4 c. chopped nuts (we used pistachio) 

In a large bowl, blend cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar. Add enough milk for a spreadable consistency' stir in food coloring and nuts. (we sprinkled the nuts on the top) looked really pretty. 

This really was very good and very moist.

If you haven't signed up for the party please do! Go HERE

I had to show you my picture I took of my babies. For some reason the egg turner quite working today. So I had to take them all out........and lay them on the couch very carefully. Then I put them back on the screen and now they are all getting toasty warm again. I will have to turn them twice a day now.........but that is okay. I love looking at them. Tonight our son and his little ones were out and I candled the duck egg for them. There was a little white spot about 1/4" big and a few little red lines (veins) inside the egg. If you have never seen this before it is the neatest. I will try real hard this weekend to video a candling for you. I love thinking about that little baby chick and duck being formed mmmmmmmm............I just LOVE IT!!! 

Again thank you for all your kindness...........I just love you ladies
so much. You make the sunshine a lot brighter.

Well, I am off to bed...........the weather is bad here..........hope it means I have to stay HOME tomorrow. Heehee. It really would be wonderful. Is that naughty?

  8. Oh more stay HOME. I am work on break and had to write and tell you my sad woes..........heehee.

    I am busy making a new recipe from Mom's Very Best Recipes Cookbook called Raspberry Bars. I don't have any raspberry jam so I am making it. That meant I got to go in the kitchen and see the Honey you know. That was fun. I miss being with him and being able to talk to him like I used to so any excuse I have to go in the kitchen is so fun! Makes my day a little more special.

    Thank you for all these precious comments. Hugs to each of you. You are such precious ladies.
