Cooking Sucks :)

I have a love/hate relationship with cooking and baking.  Love eating it..... Hate making it.  I'm a good cook too.  I always get the thumbs up from hubby and kids... well, except picky daughter but she doesn't count.  There is just something about measuring, mixing, stirring, tending and turning that I hate!  Maybe it's my impatient nature.  I'd much rather clean it all up than cook it in the first place.  Sadly, I have had to cook and cook and cook for many years!  And most likely will have to cook and cook and cook for many more!

 
Making Chocolate Chip Snowball Cookies for Christmas
I do love my kitchen gadgets and appliances as they make things easier.  The crock pot is my very best friend and we have had many good memories together.... oh beefy mushroom pot roast, soda pulled pork, sweet potatoes and chicken, and tomato hamburger soup.  The waffle iron often holds my hand for breakfast.  The Braun hand blender leads me through a lovely gravy.  The electric knife scares me.... hubby keeps it under control.  And ahhh the splendid mixer.  Wait....  I take that back.  First of all, I have never ever owned a stand mixer.  I've only owned the $7 dollar store special hand mixer and currently do not own any mixer.  One year we literally blew one up mixing frosting on Christmas Eve!!  We put it in a snow bank outside since it was on fire and found it in the Spring when the snow melted.  We all giggled.

Do you own a stand mixer?  Do you love it?  Do you make yummy things with it?  Dear Crissy is giving everyone a chance to win a Kenmore stand mixer.  WOW.  I'd love to win it....  maybe we wouldn't blow that one up.  And maybe I could learn to like cooking a little more.  Maybe. :)

Following you back from the Wednesday Buzz hop.
I hate (occasionally a like) cooking too. It feels like such a chore, plus I'm not a natural in the kitchen.
A couple years ago I got a great Costco deal on a stand mixer and using it is really probably the only enjoyable time I have in the kitchen. It makes mixing everything so much easier! So if you get one, I do think you'd love it, even if you don't love to cook and bake.
Sorry for such a long comment! :)

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Fantastic Modern Rugs from AllModern.com and a $25 Giveaway

NOW CLOSED, thanks for entering!! Winter has arrived with a vengeance here! Along with the snow and cold outside are the wonderful things that get tracked indoors. Can you hear the sarcasm? I can nearly hear my poor floors screaming every time my husband drags in ice melt pellets, wet snow and mud. We have tile floors, wood laminate floors and also carpeting. Each one of my flooring types have rugs to help protect them... and as a bonus, rugs are just plain fun! We jokingly call the big 8x5 rug in the living room the "messy mat" because it catches all my husband's crumbs. Now is a great time to invest in new and modern rugs from AllM odern.com (part of the CSN Stores network) as it's an inexpensive way to change the entire feel of your home. What better time to change the look in your home than the dreary wintertime! It's like a mood pick-up for your home and family. I could really use some new runners and this one is beautiful: However, I like
