A New Year

It is almost a new year. A new year to start new memories as 2008 will be a past memory. As I look back on the past year, I can say we have been very blessed. A new home, new car, and my husband's new job. It has been a exciting year for us. But many families haven't been so blessed with the loss of their jobs, loss of their homes and the lost of their lives. 2008 had some ups and downs but it sure was a very memorable year. With the gas prices soaring so high that it was unaffordable to most, stock market dipping to its lowest in 2 decades and so many homes went into foreclosures. There were some bright times in 2008 too. This past election. Seeing our countries first Black president get elected was a very historical event. Not only that, but the record amount of people that just came out and voted that day. It didn't matter who you voted for but the fact that so many people did which will make this a very memorable year for me. I have never seen so many lines over the co…

Tea Anyone?

Tea tea and more tea. I have always loved a relaxing cup of tea,especially after a long day. Just kick back pour myself a cup and just forget about the day and unwind. I even got my husband drinking more tea now and he is mostly a coffee drinker but he can acknowledge a good cup of brewed tea. Not too sweet but just lightly sweetened. I just recently bought some delicious teas from Etsy. I love drinking tea, especially around this time of the year. I just bought from a lovely Etsy shop called Tea For All Reasons.(love the name ) After I purchased from their shop, I then realized that they are about 20 minutes from me if that. LOL The box arrived in 1 day and nicely packaged and I couldn't wait to dig into my box. I can't believe I was excited over tea. I felt like a kid in a candy store.

I have to say that the tea was delicious. Smooth and very tasty. Didn't really need much sugar just a tad bit was fine but I sat back and enjoyed my tasty tea. I highly recommend trying som…

My Holiday Baking Adventure

Thanksgiving has now come and gone and the turkey is still sitting in my fridge waiting to be finished off. Since it was just the two of us this year, we got a somewhat small turkey but still too much for the two of us. But the turkey sandwiches for lunch have been out of this world and very tasty. I love turkey sandwiches. I even made one with lettuce and tomato. MMMM MMM good. '

Well this Thanksgiving I wanted to try my hand at baking. I consider myself a pretty good cook, but not very good at baking. Whenever I start to baking project, it never never turns out the recipe states. I either burn it, forget something in the recipe, or it just flat out did not come out right. Well I took the chance over the holiday to make two delicious recipes. Pumpkin Pie Spice Bread, and Zucchini Bread. A wonderful lady from Etsy gave me the Zucchini bread and the first batch I really burned and had to toss it out. The second time I made it on Thanksgiving day. Well it turned out super moist and d…
