How does a Yooper know that Spring is Here?

This is the last week of Sunlit Sunday over at My Little Home and Garden.  I have been able to participate each week with something that has brought sunlight to my little world here in Upper Michigan.. sometimes it was the sun but not every week.....

Avocado Tomato Chicken

We seem to eat a lot of chicken and because of that I am always looking for new and wonderful recipes so that our meals don't always taste the same.   Along with chicken recipes, I am also looking for wonderful flavours and spices to add to the recipes.

Sunlit Sunday ~ Sun through the house


                  




Sunlit Sunday is coming to an end.  I think after this week, there is one more week to go.  I will be sad to see it go and have had fun trying to come up with ideas to have some....

Orange Mint Frappe

I love to make specialty drinks as they are much cheaper making them at home... and you don't have to go out to get them, so it is a win-win solution.  This drink would also be perfect for breakfast or anytime that you need a little pick me up.

Signs of Spring?





Spring is in three days and we are once again under a Winter Storm Watch... Is spring ever going to come?

Pineapple Coconut Dessert

I am a big fan of Taste of Home Cookbooks and have many of them.  I always feel that their cookbooks are tried and true.  A couple of weeks ago my hubby took one of the cookbooks down and was thumbing through it and telling me all of the recipes he thought I should try.......

Spring Into Cash


Welcome to the Spring Into Cash Sweepstakes!

Spring is my favorite season..
It is a time of new growth, new beginnings and a time of rejuvenation.
I love to see the buds opening up on the trees, flowers popping up through the ground and the green grass.

Ice Palace

This past week I headed over to Wausau Wisconsin for a conference.  My biggest mistake was not to take my camera with me.  So all of these pictures are taken on my phone.  It seemed that every time I stopped to take pictures the clouds would decided that was the best time to cover the sun... So I apologize as these pictures are not the best.



Michigan in my review mirror
As I was driving the blue skies in the mirror beckoned me to stop and take pictures.
To my dismay the view just wasn't the same on the side of the road....
