Layered Ice Cream Dessert ~ the easiest dessert you’ll EVER make!

Summer can be busy, but it should never be too busy for a little dessert!  In my book dessert is a must, but honestly sometimes dessert falls to the wayside, I tend to use up all my culinary energies on the main course, that’s why this dessert is perfect.  It’s pretty, its delicious, it’s not […]

DIY ~ photo display

Dee’s Hot Chocolate Mix & 100+ Homemade Gift Ideas!

In my opinion the best gifts are never the gifts that can be bought at a store.  I love more than anything a good ol’ homemade gift.  My mom was the queen of homemade gifts at Christmas.  She would crochet slippers, and scarves, mittens and blankets, she would paint pots, and crochet plant hangers (Remember […]
