Cinco de Mayo Enchiladas - Pamela Style!

I always celebrate Cinco de Mayo by setting out my much loved Mexican painted wood trays and my sweet little Mexican pottery creature colletion. 

I have several trays and quite a few birds (and one frog) - all rescued from thrift shops and garage sales over the years.  I can't bear to leave them sitting unhappily in those musty places where they are not appreciated.  I have to give them a good home!  Just HAVE to!

Sweet and Easy (Not So) Sweet Treats!

I am taking a quick break from "recycle month" because I just got word from Diane that my brand new e-book (Not So) Sweets is now available in her CraftyPod shop

Some of my all time favorite desserts are included - Cream Puffs, Mousse, Panna Cotta and Linzer Cookies.  

Glorious Soups! And a Recipe for Country Style Beet Soup



Another wonderful, nourishing soup recipe to share!

But before I get to that  - on the way to this post, I encountered two more delicious soups shared recently on two other blogs I follow!

Since it is January, and still cold and dark and rainy, my need for big hot bowls of lovely soup has not diminished!  So I made them both!

And we enjoyed them so much, I decided to pass them on to anyone who might have missed them!

Sausage Vegetable Soup for Cold Winter Evenings.

It's January!  And one of my two favorite times of the year to eat lots and lots of soup! (The other being October!)

Here in the Pacific Northwest it is always dark, always cold and usually rainy in January!  Definitely soup weather!  And from what I am hearing on the news about the weather systems blowing a blanket of deep snow over most of the northern hemisphere - many of you are in need of a big bowl of hot, nourishing soup about now!

Festive Gourd Ornaments and Baubles

I am having way too much fun playing with gourds and I just have to share!

      - I decorated the two larger gourds in the background last winter and I have enjoyed them so much I decided to make a couple tiny ornaments using the same designs.

       - I had one little gourd that just begged and begged to be a snowman! 

       - During the past year, I tried my hand at drying  a bunch of those colorful, knobby, little gourds we see in every fall produce display.  And I found a very simple way to make them very festive!
