Up-cycled Creamer Bottles

Pin It
Do you recycle?

I recycle!

I've actually been recycling for years.  But only as far as in the recycling can and never really trying to re-use any of the stuff I was recycling.

So I decided to try re-using some of my recycling for other uses and LOVED how this project turned out.

Now I'm going to share my new favorite up-cycle project with you and it can become your new favorite too!

Welcome to Tasty Creations Bi-Weekly Link Party No. 3

I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  I am a day late getting this party posted because I was on a business trip with my hubby and we played hooky for a day and went to Disneyland on Thursday ~ Woohoo!  

Now I'm going to have to get into the "Spring" mode and start making some crafts and recipes for the upcoming months.  I can't believe all the posts for Easter I keep finding on Pinterest and blogs alike.

We had a great turnout over the last couple of weeks with an actual tie for the top three viewed posts!

Turkey Parmesan Meatloaf

Pin It
Do you ever have those days when you feel like you've been working all day but didn't get anything accomplished?

I do!

Those are usually my days when I spend hours a little while browsing the black hole of the universe Pinterest!

I can say that I've gotten quiet a few wonderful recipes from Pinterest though so it's a win-win to me :)

On the Border Copy-cat Salsa & SRS

It's that time of the month again!  Surprise Recipe Swap is here and boy do I have a great recipe for you!

This month I was assigned Persnickety Plates and if the name alone doesn't reel you in all of Melissa's  wonderful recipes will!  I have already pinned several of Melissa's recipes and follower her on Facebook and Pinterest.  

I was so excited to finally find a homemade salsa recipe via her blog, and couldn't wait to get started making it.  You can find her original recipe here, because you know me and I just had to change it a little bit!

Bavarian Mint Creamer

Pin It
Are you like me and like to have your Chocolate Mint flavored coffee all year round? Do you also HATE to pay $4.00 just for some flavored coffee at the coffee shop?  I sure do, so along with my Pumpkin Spice Creamer, which I drink year round, I have a delicious Bavarian Mint Creamer to share with you.

Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Muffins

Pin It
Do you like muffins?

I LOVE muffins!!!

I especially love muffins in the morning, fresh from the oven when they are still warm, Mmmmm.

Do you have lots of muffin recipes?

I don't!  It seems like I use the same few recipes over and over again.

Everyone could use a few ideas for a quick lunch right?  I know I am always at a loss and feel like I make the same old sandwiches every other day.

I've come up with some great wraps and I thought I would share them with you :)  You can thank me later!

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pinwheel Cookies

Pin It
Have you ever had one of those recipes that you just can't remember exactly what was in it or what it was called?  That happened to me this past month.

I kept seeing all these great recipes for pinwheel cookies, but none of them sounded like what I remember my Mom making for Christmas every year while I was growing up.

Apple Fritters {Buñuelos de Manzana}

Pin It
Don't you just love all the projects that your kids have to do for school these days?  I don't remember having to do half the projects let alone 1/4 of the homework!  It's downright exhausting!

My son is in his second year of Spanish and always elects to do a cooking project for his Cultural Project Research (CPR - and not the life saving kind that my husband always thinks they're doing, lol) and guess who he always asks to help him do the cooking :)
