Happy Homemaker Monday 04.18.16

Morning!!   Another week, another Monday, another cuppa coffee that’s not doing it’s job this morning 😦  Have a wonderful week!!

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.






The House on Tradd Street by Karen White. I have been waiting for this one for some time. My mom told me about another book by this author, but when I looked it up I found this series. For some reason the Kindle Library Loan system was not working properly, so I just now downloaded it. This is a whole series about old homes in the Charleston area. This one is really good, old house renovations, ghosts, mystery, romance, and the main character sees and feels dead people. I’m over half way through it, each chapter gets better and better. It’s not a creepy, scary ghost story, because of the main character’s personality. It was well worth the wait, now I’ll have to wait for all the other ones.



The Churro ice cream bowls, were a big hit!! It was a bit involved, but they were good. You are supposed to use aIMG_20160416_205301 piping bag to make the bowls, but I didn’t have one, so I put the dough in a zip lock bag, and cut a whole in the tip. My whole was probably too big, so the piping was a bit wide. Then you have to freeze the bowls for about 3 hours, and then deep-fry them. I did burn myself a few times, only because I kept putting the tongs I was using in the wrong place, and my hands would brush up against them, and they were hot!! Ouch!! I could never do a cooking show, LOL. Anniehow…it’s not a quick snack, but a delicious way to eat ice cream. I added mini chocolate chips to my ice cream. Got the seal of approval, my sons said that they were amazing!! #iatethebowl

This is what’s up next…Mozzarella-Stuffed Chicken Fingers (Benji loves cheese sticks) here’s the link to recipe and video:


❤ LOVE Cookie Monster ❤

  1. I love it – another scrummy book to dive in too! Sounds like it’s right up my alley. Keep the great book ideas coming. I’m hoping to get on a “reading roll” this summer, so it’s fun to have some recommended titles to choose from.

    I love your funny so much – especially since I’m on my “getting healthier” kick…er plan right now. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t allow myself cheat moments – like a churro bowl – when it sounds like it’s worth it. And I TOTALLY think you should have a cooking show as I picture what you describe and it makes me laugh my butt off. That’s a show I’d watch! 😉

    I love cookie monster too. And the next recipe up sounds really good too – something my son would really love!

    I hope your daughter wants to be an art/photography teacher some day. She needs to share her gifts!!

    Blessings on the week ahead my fine red-headed Friend. xoxo
