My quick homemade Salsa

1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 to 1 whole onion
dash of lime and salt
1/2 jalpeno, more if you like it REALLY hot.

Place in blender, blend to consistency you like, we usually like a few chunks but this time it was smooth

I like my salsa warm. So I then cook for about 5 mins, I dont want the onions to cook throughly though, so not too long, but this is very yummy! and quick!

Simple spelt pancakes

These are soooo yummy! And not cux of the cream, syrup and cinanamom we add either. The flavor is wonderful!
Simple Spelt Pancakes

The King Arthur Flour Company

The sweet flavor of spelt shines through in these simple pancakes. You can dress up these pancakes with fresh fruit, spices, or nuts, but we find the flavor of the grain is good enough to stand on its own.


2 cups (7 ounces) whole spelt flour
2 tablespoons (7/8 ounce) sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups (14 ounces) milk
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla (optional)


To make the pancake batter:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the spelt flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine the milk and melted butter, and the vanilla if you’re using it. Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir the batter just until the dry ingredients are thoroughly moistened: it will seem very wet, but will thicken as it sits. Let the batter sit for 15 minutes before you use it.

To make the pancakes: Heat a non-stick griddle if you have one, or a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron. If your surface is not non-stick, brush it lightly with vegetable oil. When the surface of your pan is hot enough that a drop of water sputters across the surface, give the pan a quick swipe with a paper towel to eliminate excess oil, and spoon the batter onto the hot surface, 1/4-cupful at a time.

Let the pancakes cook on the first side until bubbles begin to form around the edges of the cakes, about 2 to 3 minutes. You may need to adjust your heat up or down to get the pancakes to cook through without scorching the surface, or being too pale. When the cakes are just beginning to set, flip them and let them finish cooking on the second side, about 1 minute more, until they’re golden brown on both sides.

Sara's new dress

continuous lap( I had to look online for video of how to do this) the pattern had me so confused!!!

Matching dresses

My little hams, I made them matching white dresses. I am making the baby one too. I bought the pregathered fabric at walmart and made a lining and added straps. On the straps I put eyelets like the dress has on it. I also added buttons on the dresses. Im happy with how they turned out. I know that the lining is hanging out at the bottom that is on purpose. Leias needed to be longer and I actually like the look....I dont think Im lining the babies though.

Embroidery Work

These are long sleeve onsies for Sara. I had to make them pretty!
