My favorite TV snack

My favorite TV snack

Thanks for the post from Deborah Kline

Chocolate chip cookies have always been my favorite TV snack. Whether they're made from scratch or purchased in the Supermarket as dough, either way they bring me back to a time when I was a child and times were much simpler. They have a sense of comfort, especially when they are still warm.

When I come home at night and turn on my North Carolina satalite tv I run to the kitchen, turn my oven on and pop in some of that cookie dough. In less than 10 minutes I have a warm cookie in my hand that brings back memories of my Mother letting me eat the first cookie straight out of the oven, even though the chocolate chips are still too hot to touch. You take the cookie and toss it back and forth from hand to hand until it eventually cools off enough to put it in your mouth and enjoy the rich delicious flavor.

I take the cookies and transfer them onto a dish, pour an ice cold glass of milk and crash on my couch for a little while to relax. I take the cookie and dip it in the milk immediately transferring it to my mouth to take a big bite. Some of the crumbs fall back into the glass and I giggle as if I'm still 5 years old.

How To Not Cry When You Are Cutting Onions


Do you cry when you slice, dice or cut up onions?

Here is a simple Tip Of The Day!

Deep freeze your onions about ten minutes or so before you cut them. This will help keeps the onions natural juices from exploding and shooting into the air when you cut it with a knife.

Happy Cooking ;)

Grillin And Chillin Outdoors

Summer is upon us and that means grillin and chillin outdoors. Long gone are the wood decks, a simple round table with a metal and vinyl umbrella centered in the middle of it. We have added an additional room to the house plans these days. The outdoor room.

In this new addition to our houses we have the outdoor dining room along with a living area. Well depending on how much room you actually have in your back yard! The new dining room furniture has improved so much so over the last few years you can practically leave it out year round and enjoy it! Even the cushions are weather proof.

I have been looking for some really fun dishes for outside and came across this one that I fell in love with. My colors are brown and green and this set matches perfectly. The best part is no matter how much you screw up the food it will still look good!
So the traditional round table top is now "out" look here at what I found! This set is fab for a evening gathering out side. Perfect with plenty of room for decorations, lighting and the food.

Furniture for outdoor dining room's come in many new styles now. Contemporary, Modern.. oh and of course there still is the re designed wicker that never goes out of style.

I really think this little bistro set out of wood and wicker is cute! An updated version of the old stand by. Add some candles, outdoor lighting in the trees, a fire pit and your good to go!

Be creative and have fun designing your new outdoor space! By basic clean lines that will go with any color or cushion style to get the most out of what you decide on.

Have a great Summer
