Hard Tack CandyThe first time I had this, it came from Beechy's a wonderful Amish store in Illinois. While I haven't been able to make candy quite as pretty as theirs, it tastes the about the same. :)
Christmas Dessert TrifleI love making trifles for different occasions. You can make trifles with any flavored cake, pudding, fruits, cookies, and cool whip! It is fun and amazing what you can surprisingly make creatively and beautifully.
Sausage DipAs I was preparing for family coming home for Christmas, I made this sausage dip ahead of time and put it in the refrigerator. It is simple and easy to make. It is gluten free if using Tostitos corn chips.
Duke (Husky Pit Bull Cross)My family recently adopted Duke. We had never heard of a Pitsky before. A Husky and Pit Bull mix. He needed a home because his previous owner works two jobs and felt it wasn't fair to not give him the attention he needed. He really loved him and had everything for him, but time.

Snow In The Sky On Christmas DayWe live in York, S C. where our climate is very mild and sometimes we get a dusting of snow. I am sharing this photo that was taken from our car on Christmas Day. The sky is a perfect fluff of snow, or possibly angel wings. We didn't get snow on the ground but how beautiful the sky was, giving an illusion of fluffy pillows that has made fun talk among my family and friends.
Meal Planning Pocket ChartLike many people, I have struggled with my weight all of my life. The extra pounds didn't start affecting my overall health until the past couple of years. But I am a food addict. When I'm not eating, I'm thinking about my next meal. Food is comforting and I reach for it to celebrate and to feel better.
Freezing Baked BeansI was made privy to a tip from a man who used to work for B&M Baked Beans. He told me you could freeze them. I bought a big #10 can and dived them up into zip bags. Sure enough, they heat up like you just took them out of the can.
Shoes Damaged by Bleach?Is there any way for these shoes to be cleaned? The original print (first photo) can no longer be restored, for sure, but can the stains and remaining print be removed so that it will only be the white parts left and I can paint a new design on the shoes?
House Training a Pomeranian?My mom acquired a Pom. I am not sure of her age, I think she is under one. The lady that had her worked all the time and the dog stayed in a crate. We have trained many dogs. Never has she had a Pom. This dog seems untrainable!

Can you tell me why?
McCormick Seasoning Copycat Recipe?Does anyone have an even close recipe for the discontinued McCormick Gourmet Bourbon Spiced Pork Recipe and Seasoning Mix? This is so good, my kids loved it ~ have no idea why it was discontinued.
Canning Bath Not Long Enough?About 4 months ago I canned quarts of halved peaches, but did not add water bath time for our high altitude. Since I didn't realize this until about a week afterwards I was advised to throw it all out, but have been avoiding throwing this work down the drain. Could I take the peaches out and cook them into jam?
