I Won the Friends at the Table Cookbook

As some of you may know, I collect cookbooks.

So, when Laura Trevey of the fabulous blog Bright Bold and Beautiful hosted a giveaway for Debi Shawcross' Friends at the Table: The Ultimate Supper Club Cookbook, I entered.

And, I won!This cookbook is so much fun. Filled with many photos, it is categorized by season with a shopping list at the beginning of each meal. Ms. Shawcross also provides a timeline for what to cook when.

Thank you Laura and please check out her blog. It is gorgeous.

And, thank you Debi. Can't wait to try the recipes and will soon share it with my readers at The Single Nester.

Weight Watchers Slow Cooker Lentil Soup

I love lentils and I love my slow cooker.

Here is a recipe that I made using both.Easy peasey and whoa, the fiber! Drink plenty of water.

I omitted the Canadian bacon. I didn't really feel the recipe needed it. Maybe next time, I will include a can of diced tomatoes.

Micke Fear and Dread Courtesy of IKEA

My guest bedroom turned home office renovation is going ever so slowly. What, you may ask is holding me back?

Finding the right desk.

Simple, right? A desk.

But not so much. I thought of making my own using a slab of wood and 4 legs; mainly because I fear having to assemble anything I purchase from IKEA.

I really like this desk, the Micke.It is the right dimensions. The right style I am going for and the price is oh-so-right at $69.

However, how am I going to put it together?

I saw the instructional manual online and I am scared!

Have any of you put together something from IKEA? How was it? Did you survive?

Valentine Wreath Revisted.

I have not been in a creative kind of mood this Valentine's Day.

And I am not one to repeat a post but I've got nothing.

So, I've decided to revisit an oldie but a goodie from two years ago; my Heart-shaped Valentine Cupcake Liner Wreath.You can read about how I made it here. I cannot believe it has been 2 years already.

What crafty things have you created for Valentine's Day?

"Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine,
love, thou art every day my Valentine!"

How Tim Tebow Stays Cool (but not me)

There is all this chatter about how Tim Tebow won't drop his pants for his Jockey commercial. I say leave the clothes on and leave something to the imagination.

Mr. Tebow is advertising for a keep-your-body-cool product. After watching this video, I can hardly keep cool (wink wink).

My KIND of Granola Bar

I have a love-hate relationship with granola bars.

Most of the bars I have tried taste like ground-up cardboard, not that I've eaten ground-up cardboard but I can imagine what it wound taste like.

I recently saw a tv program where granola bars were reviewed and this bar came out on top.I found it at Trader Joe's and I am in love!

Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew is the only flavor I have tried and it is divine. It is also sold at Starbucks.

Have you tried these? What is your favorite granola bar?
