Blood Orange Sorbet

Every now and then I make two much juice so that is when I turn to making sorbet. Sorbets are easy to make but take time to freeze unless you have a ice cream maker. Either way they are a wonderful treat. A few simple steps and you can turn […]

20 Minute Tostada’s

I picked up my Half time hostess pack last night and saw my prizes….I was so excited. I don’t think people realize the value of these babies, the gazillion things we can do with them! I think I will be testing out the possibilities in the near future. But, I […]

Veggie Sausage Soup
