Spring Will Be Here Soon!

While I realize that many of you are dealing snow and ice, in Las Vegas, it was warm enough to open the windows. I just love the smell of fresh air blowing in. And watching the curtains sway in the breeze is always a delight!~

Friday Lunch: Chicken Caesars Salad Wraps

Since we have lots of Flatout Bread in the house, I decided to make Chicken Caesars Salad Wraps. I actually won a box full of Flatout Bread products!~

My husband had made the salad earlier in the day. This sandwich was delicious and filling!

Darby Smart ~ Confetti Champagne Glasses



I decided to place the 'bubbles' on the very bottom of the glasses, for a subtle touch! This was a fun and easy project for me. Now I just need to stop by the store for some sparkling juice and give a toast!

Thank You for The Flatout Bread!

I love it when I receive packages that contain food prizes! Woohoo!!

Southern Biscuits 101



I've been baking biscuits since I was 15 years old so you would think I would have it down. Well, not exactly! My husband complained that my biscuits didn't taste like Pillsbury biscuits. Okay honey!

Over the years, I've picked up some great biscuit making tips. Thank you to all of the wonderful home cooks and bakers. Here's just a couple of my "Must Do".

Use cake flour. If the recipe calls for 2 cups flour, use 1 cup flour, 1 cup of cake flour.

Don't forget to shift your dry ingredients. You'll want those ingredients well mixed and this is one way of doing it!

This Taylor Dresses Ponte Dress with Ruffled Hem is available at Gwynnie Bee.

Ramblings of a Suburban Mom



Yes, it's true. White Castle, on The Strip, had to close for maintenance and to restock. They were selling 4000 burgers per hour. Wow!



Now, I'm definitely aware that there are loads os Apps out there for almost every need but this one really surprises me. So a person doesn't know if their friends are toxic? That would actually need a tool to measure their feelings when they're hanging out their friends baffles me.



If you're considering looking for a new job, here's the Top 25 Jobs, per Glassdoor.



I hope all of you, that are dealing with the aftermath of Juno, are safe and sound.

Thank You For The Wonderful Birthday Gifts!

Spending Time With My Hubby

My husband surprised with a visit to one of my favorite locations in Las Vegas. This neighborhood is always so peaceful there. Not to mention, loads of opportunities for great photos.

My Big Lots goal is $25. Sadly, I went over by $3 and change, on this visit.
