Mom's Apple Cake

Last Reply by RickieB 1410810778.433 | Started by Pat James Dementri in Kitchen & Food Talk, Recipe Swap, Hosts & Personalities

It is a fall tradition with our family since I was a kid that my mom would make apple cake for us.   A few thoughts: Macintosh apples work the best but apples picked from a trip to the orchard are the most fun!

Last Reply by HappyMiss37 1409351573.153 | Started by Pat James Dementri in For the Home Talk, Hosts & Personalities, Mom to Mom Blogs

What a week it's been! With moving and getting Nicole settled, we took some downtime to get crafty. Nikki and I wanted to share a fun and inexpensive way to decorate a college dorm room... Grab your coupon and go to the craft store for a few supplies! You'll need some basics... A glue gun, paint, different size canvases and fun sparkles... Grey stripes are created by painting a canvas....create your stripes by using scotch tape and add special touches like flowers.   Another fun idea is using your initials. You can print out letters and tape them down to block the paint on your... Continue Reading

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Last Reply by NanaS 1402751795.71 | Started by Pat James Dementri in In the Garden, Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

One of my favorite hobbies is gardening… My favorite part of gardening is planting all of the gorgeous flowers and fun plants... I have to literally stop myself from over planting.  The only thing that is slowing me down is all the aches and pains from carrying the dirt!  I obviously have a helper so I have to situate my pots and cubes so that Misty can manage to navigate the back yard..Lol…   I spend hours building my pots, garden boxes and under planting my lime and rose trees... I always try to remember that I need to have a focal point, filler and trailing pl... Continue Reading
