Triple Chocolate Cake in the Crock Pot




So easy....sooooo good!!

Leave it to Gooseberry Patch!
(And Joan Brochu from Harwich, MA)
All you have to do is combine simple ingredients
and pour into a crock pot.
It's done in a few hours!


The house smells wonderful and it is such
a nice way to welcome home loved ones
after school or work!

I made this a few days ago during one
of our snow days. Very cozy!
We had plenty of leftovers.

To see a written recipe,
just click on the caption under the first photo.
And, isn't everything better with a little
ice cream!?

Enjoy!

Project Life - A New Year a New Scrapbook


A layout from my digital, Project Life scrapbook album.
I have been "following" Becky Higgins
since the late 1990's. 
I have loved her style and approach
to scrapbooking.

Finally, I have decided to begin
a scrapbook based on her product line
called Project Life.

cultivate a good life by Becky Higgins

It is a simple and beautiful way
to scrapbook.
Although I have loved the creative part of 
scrapbooking, I have used the lack of time 
as an excuse not to scrapbook at all. 
I have wanted to get back to documenting what is 
happening in our lives and how quickly 
my boys are growing...but with less time.
This is a perfect solution. :)

I have chosen the digital version
of the Project Life kits...
the Seafoam Edition.
I love the colors. 

To check out more of Project Life,
just click on the highlighted words under the images.

Have a beautiful day and don't
forget to document your life!

Buffalo Chicken Salad - Great for Super Bowl Leftovers!

Does anyone NOT serve Buffalo Wings for Super Bowl?!
Ok...a few. :)
Just in case, I LOVE
Tyson's Buffalo Style Chicken Strips.
They have a nice flavor and kick!
This is all you need....
lettuce, Ranch dressing, blue cheese and
I like avocado to cool it all down.
I have used Blue Cheese dressing
instead of Ranch but I think
the Blue Cheese flavor overpowers.
I can't believe I said that!
And a confession....
I usually have these ingredients on hand. 
That's how much I love this salad. 

You can create several salads assembly-line style
or everyone can fix their own. 
My kids prefer not to add the Blue Cheese.
I add about a tablespoon or two to mine.
Also, I love avocado and could take an entire
avocado on my salad.
But, I think when grocery shopping to plan
on a half avocado per salad.

And, it's that easy!

I hope you have a SUPER weekend!

Journal Box

I received the sweetest gift this Christmas.
(Thank you Karen!)
A journal box...is what I call it.


She found vintage postcards (LOVE)
cut notecards...
stamped 352 cards...
Wow!
packaged it in a recycled berry box.

I am not good at journaling...
but with this, it's only one line
per card
per year!

I can do this! And, so far, I have been keeping up. 
Pretty much.

I have started a Project Life
scrapbook by Becky Higgins (digital) and it has
already helped me to find dates.
Yeah!

Thank you Karen!
I love the idea.
I love the look.
I love the simplicity.

I believe Karen found the idea on Pinterest.
Here is the link to the original post.

Have a great day!!
