I never really was one much for sweet potatoes.  I’m not sure why. I love me some mashed potatoes, but had never even considered having the mashed sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving. Nope, the mashed sweet potatoes were something that I just passed right over.

Maybe it was the overpowering sweetness of the traditional sweet potato dish or I got them confused for candied yams.  In any case, it wasn’t until much later in life that I realized how good sweet potatoes are.  Man, I’ve been missing out all these years!

These Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Brown Sugar are sure to delight even the pickiest eater in your family.

Can Being Organized Save You Money?


organized save you money Can Being Organized Save You Money?

The old saying that haste leads to waste is true. Speeding to work can cause a costly car crash. Jumping into a purchase without much forethought can mean money lost. Any hastily made decision should be avoided, if at all possible. Having a disorganized home will cost money in the long-run. Have you ever forgotten where you put your bills?  And then you’re late paying them? People lose a screwdriver and then have to buy another in its place. Food goes bad when there is too much of it in the fridge and on the counter, and you can’t find that dang tomato! Keep things simple by being organized. When things are organized, very little goes to waste.

So, recently, I’ve done a lot of traveling. A LOT of traveling. One of the things I realized is that it’s seriously not convenient to take my giant laptop with me everywhere.  I’ll bring it along, sure, for work and blogging. But I can’t just get it out and set up somewhere to see where I might want to go in the town I’m in, or when we’re looking for a hotel. You see, I have a 19 inch laptop.  It seemed like a good idea at the time I ordered it, but it’s not so portable.  We often travel with no reservations. We may have a general plan, but nothing is usually set in stone.

You can use a tablet, or your phone, to connect and look things up, but that gets cumbersome, too. How many times have you tried to click a link while mobile only to wind up somewhere else entirely? For me, that happens ALL.THE.TIME.

There’s a new breed of Intel 2 in 1 , like the Acer Aspire Switch 10.

Pecan Pie Bars Recipe


There are two things I love  – pecan pie and bar cookies.  Why not combine the two with these pecan pie bars?

pecan pie bars recipe Pecan Pie Bars Recipe

I am a sucker for pecan pie.  I have to say that it’s probably my favorite kind of pie.  Serve it with a big dollop of whipped cream, and I am so there.

Of course, it takes a while to make pecan pie.  Especially if you’re going through all the effort of making a pretty design on the top with the pecan halves.  Why not just cut to the chase, and make a great pecan pie bar?  These pecan pie bars are  relatively quick and easy, and you don’t have to feel the need to justify making a whole pie.
