Endless Summer Sand Collection

My Sand Collection from Around the World

When I go on a beach vacation, I bring home some sand. Yep, annoying piles of sand in my suitcase, clothing and shoes. However, I actually started collecting sand from vacations about 12 years ago and now I have a pretty cool collection. It's free and is a great way to remember all of the places I have been over the years. I've had friends bring me sand over the years, and as thoughtful as that is, I only collect sand that I have actually stepped on! I'm not a rock nerd. Geez.  Read more about Endless Summer Sand Collection

Spicy Mango Chutney

Spicy Mango Chutney

Mango chutney is pretty easy to make and can, and as it's summer, you should be able to find lots of mangos at a reasonable price in the stores. Mango chutney may be served with cheeses, crackers, breads, fish, chicken & as a glaze for veggies. However, I must say that this chutney on a grilled cheese sandwich is probably the most delicious thing I've had in a long time! Super addicting!! Make lots of grilled cheese with mango chutney and cut up into quarters & serve as an easy summer appetizer! Read more about Spicy Mango Chutney

Vegetarian Neat Loaf

Vegetarian Neat Loaf

This vegetarian 'Neat Loaf' is so tasty that my daughter will often beg me to make it. It's super easy to make and has less than 8 grams of saturated fat in the entire thing! A great option for those trying to keep things lean, but high protein. (Hey, that rhymed!)

It's a mixture of cereal, walnuts, cottage cheese, eggs & onion mix that comes together into something that is so addicting, even meat lovers will be having seconds and thirds. 

Here's the nitty gritty:

Vintage Beaded Easter Ornaments

Vintage Beaded Easter Ornaments Walco
Beautiful vintage beaded Easter ornaments! These ornaments were most likely created from 'beaded kits' from Walco (LeeWards and   Sulyn were the other bead kit companies). During the Depression, beads were an inexpensive and Bead Crafting was marketed to both adults and children. It was a cheap, yet fun time consuming hobby that produced beautiful results.

Easy Irish Soda Bread

Easy Irish Soda Bread
In continuing with our St.Patrick's Day Irish themed food series, here is a super easy recipe for Irish Soda Bread. You may mix and knead the bread by hand, but if you have a stand up Kitchenaid mixer, I really recommend using it as this recipe will only take you about 10 minutes.  I cranked out 6 loaves the other day under 40 minutes.
 
Original recipe makes two 3/4 # loaves
 
 4 cups all-purpose flour
 4 tablespoons white sugar
 1 teaspoon baking soda

Irish Jalapeño Jelly

jalapeno jelly for st. patrick's day
 
Ahh, St. Patrick's Day is almost upon us! I love making this hot jalapeno jelly every year to give out to friends and neighbors. Are jalapenos Irish? Nope - not in the least, but as a native San Diegan it's my way of bringing my south of the border flavor to my Irish heritage. Plus, who doesn't love green jalapeno jelly smothered on top of cream cheese and served with crackers? 
 
This recipe uses jalapeno peppers only (no bell peppers!)  I prefer leaving a few seeds or so on each pepper as that is what gives it an amazing spice kick.
