Spoiled Spooky

Normally Spooky doesn't come into my office/workspace but tonight she was desperate for my attention~ So she did all her cute little tricks that got her noticed and after she climbed onto my drying racks (good thing I just emptied all my dried flowers into a jar or she would be in big trouble) I took these pictures.

My white roses that I got for Valentine's Day are drying~ can't waste good flowers :)

my new kraft labels on my herb jars~ now I can read what's in there
I was soo excited when I found these circle kraft paper labels on-line. They are the perfect size for my herb jars! I just printed the names on the labels and added a cute bee skep and now my herb jars aren't an "Eye-Sore" anymore. YEAH!!

New Baby Powder Candle

My New "BABY POWDER" candle was actually a request from my aunt. The scent of baby powder reminds her of my late grandmother and she asked me to make her a candle so that she could remember...... My pleasure Deb :)

Roasted Tomato & Sausage Casserole

Being cooped up in the house has gotten me caught up on my candle & tart orders~~~yeah! I've also come up with a few new recipes that I've shared on my website's RECIPE page :)

Fire Roasted TOMATO & SAUSAGE Casserole

1lb Sweet Italian Sausage (remove casings)
28oz can Fire Roasted diced Tomatoes- organic
4 Potatoes- organic (diced)
1 medium Onion- organic
1 green Pepper- organic
4-5 mushrooms- organic
6 cloves chopped garlic- organic
Italian spices (oregano, thyme, fennel, basil) organic
salt & pepper
1 Buttermilk Biscuit container (found an all natural one at whole foods)

Cooking Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350
On stove-top, start browning the sweet Italian sausage in olive oil
Add diced onion, pepper, mushrooms & garlic
Add 1/3 of the seasonings plus some salt & pepper
Stir and finish browning meat mixture
Layer the diced potato on top
Add 1/3 of the seasonings plus some salt & pepper
Layer the entire can of fire roasted tomatoes on top of the potatoes
Add remaining seasonings
Cover and place in oven for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender

Remove from oven and layer the biscuits on top. Sprinkle with a little seasoning and return to oven uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until the biscuits are browned.

*I turn the broiler on in the last few minutes to get the biscuits golden brown- just make sure you watch them so they don't burn!

ENJOY~~~ We Did :)
