It has been a fun day of baking and eating. Fun to have the kids milling about with us. Go Seahwaks!
The Christmas decor is put away. Our little house looks so fresh and bright.
I brought out some Valentine’s decor.
The days are very cold, but sunny. I love waking up to the pops of red here and there.
I have been open the living room curtains and letting in the few rays of sunshine that I can.
Happy New Year! I hope your 2015 is blessed and full of wonderfulness!

½ C Butter
2 C Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
1 15 oz. can Pumpkin Puree
3 C Flour
3 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
Heat oven to 375 F. Prepare muffin/ and or cupcake liners.
Cream together butter and sugar very well. Add Vanilla. Beat in eggs. Mix in puree. Mix in dry ingredients. It will be a thick batter. Pour into prepared liners, filling about 2/3 full. Bake at 375 F for 13-15 min or until done. Frost when cool. I like Cream Cheese frosting. Makes about 28 cupcakes.
I have made Taco Ring for years. My husband found this dish on Pinterest and we tried it tonight. It was yummy!
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 T. minced garlic (from the jar)
1 cup spaghetti garlic sauce
6 oz. (1 1/2 cups) shredded mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese
1 (8-oz.) can Crescent Dinner Rolls
1 small can of sliced olives
Heat oven to 375°F. In large skillet, cook ground beef and garlic over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain. Stir in pasta sauce; cook until thoroughly heated. Unroll dough and spoon meat mixture into each triangle. (You can google images to see how to place the dough if you get stuck. I did not take a photo. Sorry) Add olives if desired. Fold triangles into the pan and bake at 375°F. for 18 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove from oven and add cheese. Place back in the oven until cheese is melted. Serve
