MYO" Land o' L**kes"Flavored Butters-my secret weapons of FLAVOR!!

This is VERY SECRET!!!

I have an addiction I have to admit to...
 MY Weapons of FLAVOR!!

I have 2 major passions OBSESSIONS when it comes to food: 

Flavor ENHANCERS and TASTY beverages. 

I love my condiments, they are small tools that offer a big punch of flavor and when I want a party in my mouth and (Between you and me:-) in the past I have spent a small fortune on dressings, flavored butters, & marinades...  

The other day I just saw a commercial for Land O' L**kes flavored butters, "Saute Express" that offer consumers an easy start to a meal. The price of a 6- 1 oz cubes is equivalent to 1 WHOLE POUND OF BUTTER!! 

SERIOUSLY??? How interesting...

RECIPE WED # 14: Rich Sour Cream Devil's Food Cake with Caramel-Chocolate Chips Trifle

Necessity is the mother of invention, right? So it goes with this tasty little ditty. 

I had made this cake for my chocoholic 4 year old daughter's birthday and because my blasted oven is so stinking hot ( I know buy an oven thermometer all ready will ya?) the outside edges were over baked before the center was cooked through

So I cut off the crunchy parts and we snacked or I should say CRUNCHED on them while I took the rich and delicious center and layered it with frosting making a trifle. Based on the dab of cake left in the bowl I would say it was a hit!

Fantasy Makeup...Having Fun with make-up and your kids!!

I had such a fun time these past 2 years at our community Fall Family Fun Day. The area park system sets up a hay ride, a bon-fire, a treat trail where the families learn about animals in the area in their natural habitat and get to receive treats along the way,  painting pumpkins, games, face painting...

Now I know I can apply make up I have done so for my chosen profession for 20+ years so I knew i could watch a few You-Tube Videos and learn some tricks...

The first year, my daughter 
was very into Avatar, 
plus she loves dinosaurs & princesses....
so we did a combo...
