Kate’s Escapades – How to make Rice Bag Heating Pads

Kate’s Escapades – How to make Rice Bag Heating Pads

The cold temperatures of winter have finally arrived. That means chilly nights and nippy mornings. That also means it’s time to bring out the rice bag heating pads. Our family has used them for years to keep our tootsies warm, our hands toasty, and to relieve the occasional stiff neck or back.  I think we first discovered these amazing little things when my mother-in-law gave us a few for Christmas many years ago. There’s nothing … Read entire article »

Christmas Craftdown – Cookie Cutter Wreath

Christmas Craftdown – Cookie Cutter Wreath

When I got out my Christmas decorations a few days ago, I discovered that one of my favorite old wreaths was looking a little worse for wear. Many of the berries had fallen off and the greenery seemed to be smashed beyond repair. I decided it was time for a new wreath. Hooray for computers and Google, because I found wreath ideas galore. So many, that I had a hard time choosing one to make. … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Thanksgiving Gratitude Tablecloth (Memory Tablecloth)

Kate’s Escapades – Thanksgiving Gratitude Tablecloth (Memory Tablecloth)

Ahhh…Thanksgiving.  That often overlooked holiday sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas.  You know, the one holiday that can’t really be commercialized, so the stores pretend it doesn’t exist? And yet, it is one of the most important holidays of all, because instead of focusing on material things and “stuff to buy”,  we can spend this time focusing on family, gratitude and thankfulness…the things which are truly important in life. In my family we started the tradition of a … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – Let’s Talk Turkey

Kate’s Escapades – Let’s Talk Turkey

The big day is almost here. We have a Thanksgiving motto at my house… Gobble ’til You Wobble! A perfectly acceptable motto for one day of the year, don’t you think?  Well, maybe you could stretch that out to two days, if you have enough leftovers.  But three days?  Don’t try it unless you are expecting a gym membership for Christmas. The star of every Thanksgiving feast is certainly the turkey.  And probably nothing strikes more fear into … Read entire article »

Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble. Do you know who we owe this great (often misquoted…does bubble, bubble toil and trouble ring a bell?) Halloween diddy to???

Liz’s rant: Oh, rats

Liz’s rant: Oh, rats

Before you start thinking that I’ve gotten in the um, spirit of things where Halloween is concerned, let me say, “not really.” It’s just that I seem to be finding a myriad of ways to celebrate this holiday. Following through is another matter entirely. As usual, I’ll be going all out by simply getting the pumpkins carved in time for trick-or-treating. Nevertheless, I’ve come across quite a few spookily-themed foods of late. This one, in my … Read entire article »

Kate’s Escapades – How to Make Gourmet Caramel Apples

One of my family’s favorite fall treats is caramel apples.  We used to make regular old plain caramel apples and love them, until one vacation to Disneyland many years ago.  We discovered  Marceline’s Confectionery candy shop just outside the Disneyland gates.  We had gone to Downtown Disney the night before our adventure into the actual Disneyland park to get a taste of the Disneyland magic and … Read entire article »

Liz’s rant: A bit of Halloween fun

Liz’s rant: A bit of Halloween fun

With less than two weeks l;eft before Halloween, I thought it might be fun to explore a few facts about this ghoulishly groovy holiday: Halloween Express recently caught a shoplifter. The punishment? The thief had to stand outside the store in a Bert (from Sesame Street) costume, holding a sign that read: I got caught shoplifting… Now. Does anyone else see the ineffectiveness of this? Or is it just me? Nothing rhymes with orange. Really. I’m not … Read entire article »

A Fitting Tribute to Slain Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie

Under the darkness of night, Ivie opened fire on two fellow agents approaching from the opposite side, thinking they were armed smugglers. They returned fire and Ivie was killed.
