Canned Cream of Mushroom soup is a staple in the cupboards of my region. It is the heart and soul of a myriad of casseroles. We make Green Bean Casserole with it for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter Dinners. It livens up Beefy Macaroni and Cheese for a quick supper on a busy night, something known in our house as Surprise, It’s Supper. It’s one of those magical ingredients that you… Continue Reading

Do you have a lot of luck signing up for all those giveaways on the web? Until just the other day, I’ve never won a thing. I was so excited that I finally won a blog giveaway! But… I have to be honest, I entered the giveaway thinking I wouldn’t win anyway, and it was helping out a friend of mine. No biggie. I honestly didn’t really WANT what was… Continue Reading
GUEST POST ON HEATHER’S BLOG A really good friend of mine gave me a reusable shopping bag stuffed full of hair care products – shampoos, conditioners, styling products.
