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
