Tonight’s dinner is chicken, “baked” potatoes & green beans. I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts. Covering the bottom of my crock pot with the chicken, I then covered the chicken with water & sprinkled on low sodium soy sauce for flavoring.
After covering the chicken with a sheet of foil, I cleaned my potatoes, pierced them & wrapped them in foil. I place the potatoes around the edge of the pot to help seal the foil on top of the chicken. I then put the crock in the pot & cook on high until dinner.
I am simmering green beans in my small crock pot. Dinner is cooking & I am able to focus on other things!
Oh, chocolate chip cake mix cookies for dessert!
Easy & delicious. No time to prepare in the morning? Simply put dinner together the night before. Place crocks in your fridge until morning. Cook on low if simmering all day, high if less than 6 hours. Make certain you post notes for yourself so you remember to put your crock into your pot. Enjoy!
Growing up in St. Louis, Gooey Butter Coffee Cake was one of my favorite things. Years later, I enjoy creating & making cake mix cookies. Imagine my delight when I saw that Betty Crocker had combined 2 of my very favorite things! I admit I haven’t tried this recipe yet but I promise I am going to make them as soon. If you make them before I do, let me know what you think of them. Enjoy!
I have always felt the best gifts are handmade. This is especially true when the gifts re from kids. Take time to teach your kids that gifts don’t need to be expensive. They simply need to be heartfelt. this selection of Valentine crafts for kids offers projects to decorate your home or share as a gift. Perfect for those cold afternoons at home! Enjoy!
An Inventive & Effective Leader
Following Tom’s Example
Recruit the Right People
Make It Look Good
Many Hands Make Light Work
Finally, They Come to You
At this point, like Tom, you can sit back & watch the work continue without any effort on your part. Well, almost. You still have work to do. However, your listeners, subscribers, numbers continue to grow without any effort on your part. All you need to do is help other people & continue to create new content. Not bad, huh?
At Valentine’s Day, television is filled with commercials for expensive gifts. I have much simpler tastes. I enjoy a bit of chocolate & last year, the loving Mr. D gave me a pound of my favorite coffee beans & a vintage cocktail shaker. I tend to make his favorite dinner & I bake cookies & brownies. I like homemade gifts or simple things I come across when I’m out. Consider the sweet handmade gifts you have saved over the years from your children. I still smile when I look at one of our handmade treasures made by The Child!
This Valentine’s Day, remember it is the thought that counts & take time to make a few of these charming gifts from Country Living. Enjoy!
The weather is snowy & cold here in so much of the country right now. This is the perfect time for soup. I have a big pot of vegetable soup simmering in my large slow cooker. I plan to add a salad & pumpkin muffins, homemade of course, to make a wonderful winter supper.
Soup is one of my very favorite foods. There is no limit to what you can add to soup. People often ask me what I put into one of my soups. I’m not always able to tell them because I tend to add a bit of this & a little of that. This is what makes soup so great for me.
while I like creating my own soup concoctions, I also like new ideas. Southern Living share a variety of soups you can make, serve & freeze to enjoy later. I always make enough soup so I can freeze some for later. Thanks, Southern Living! Enjoy!

Mr. D always goes with me when I shop for materials to create my products. Once upon a time, he dreaded these trips but lately, he has discovered a fascinating world of gadgets & gizmos & tools & more that keep him occupied while I shop. Believe it or not, I like to get in & out quickly so I can get home & back to creating. I often have to search for Mr. D when it is time to leave & then he has to show me the latest thing he has discovered. A few months back, he was tickled to see all the colors Mason jars are now offered in. I explained that Mason jars are not just for canning anymore. Case in point, this marvelous selection of Valentine crafts created with Mason jars. I would say you are going to love them but Country Living has already done so in their title. So instead, Enjoy!
