It's Recipe Time!!

Good Friday Morning All!!

Boy oh Boy is it ffffffreeeezing here in Minnesota this morning! It is currently -18 out there. Yes, that is a minus in front of the eighteen! Because it's so nippy I thought I would post a couple of "warm the body and soul" recipes for you to try out! Remember to click on the link at the right of this post and join Colleen from And Baby Makes Five in her weekly recipe swap! It's fun and there are loads of great recipes to try out!

My last post was talking about random acts of kindness, and boy do I have one to share with you all! My sweet friend Kindra (check out her amazing blog at Three guys, a girl and a prim place) sent me this ADORABLE block set she MADE! Yes, she MADE them! Just for me! I love them Kindra, and they are just perfect for perking up the house after putting away all my Christmas decor. Thank you so much for brightening up my day and my heart!!!
