S’mores Stuffed Brownies!

My mother bought brownie mix a few days ago off the markdown shelf. I can’t tell you how much money we’ve saved by visiting the markdown shelf. If your local grocery store has a markdown shelf, you should take advantage of it. Anyway…back to the brownies. When I make brownies, I usually add chocolate chips …

What-a-Great-Website Wednesday! Week 9

I said in my previous post that I would give a review of the Slow Cooked Macaroni & Cheese. Oops…it’s a little late. First of all, I made ours with whole wheat pasta. I’ve been trying to stick with healthier foods and found that we really like the taste of the whole wheat pasta. The …

Katie’s Graduation Party

Today, we had Katie’s graduation party! We were so fortunate to have a beautiful day, especially after last night’s weather! We had severe thunderstorm warnings, severe thunderstorm watches, flash flood warnings, tornado warnings – it was crazy! A tornado hit not far from our house – we were very fortunate that it avoided us. The …

The Music Box

When I was younger, we used to visit my grandmother’s house at least once a week. When we weren’t playing or helping her with something around the house, I used to go into her bedroom (which is now my bedroom) and play one of her music boxes. It was always in the same spot, and …
