triple layer mousse

or as I like to say, a kitchen disaster! I recommend making this but doing it in a plastic cup... or a jar! :) LOL

You can get the recipe from Martha Stewart
I did not let the whipping cream get hard enough. Apparently following directions is important. 
It was supposed to look like this. HA!
Oh well. They were. DELICIOUS!!!!

cupcake in a jar

Jars are good for so many things. Trapping bugs, canning gummy bears, holding cell for fairies, and the easiest and most fun way to eat a cupcake!

Super easy and the "new thing"according the my Rachael Ray Magazine. 

Just layer cake, frosting filling.. repeat. 

Serve and eat. ENJOY!

Pita Pizza with raisins

DON'T you Dar say GROSS! :)
Well, you can because I did. But McKay thought it would be fun to try so we made it and we will be adding this to our monthly menu. 

Pita Pizza idea we got from mom's post
We got the recipe from this months Rachel Ray Mag. (I have a subscription as a gift)
This is probably one of her best mag with SO MANY recipes!

Pita's (or pizza dough, it doesn't matter)
NO SAUCE!!! (we tried with and w/o and w/o is MUCH BETTER)

swiss cheese
Bacon chopped up
onions (sauteed with bacon and butter beforehand)
Golden Raisins (add to the onions and bacon)

add the swiss cheese. Then add the sauteed mix of raisins, onion and bacon. 
Top with olives and back until cheese is melted. 

You tastebuds will thank you. :)

Best soup ever

Here is a soup I made up from a soup recipe I tried at Christmas and I like this better since I have the ingredients already from food storage.
I freeze my sour cream when it goes on sale for 60cents and so I throw a whole carton in a big pan from the freezer.
1/3-1/2 c. powdered milk.
2 sm. cans tomato sauce
3 cans black beans
1 or 2 cans corn (I used one can)
chicken I had cooked and seasoned and frozen in the freezer
1 pkg. taco seasoning
about 20 corn tortillas broken up
cheese grated or block about a cup
pour in water to fill the rest of the pan up to the top (large pan)
It is a thick soup and won't need crackers. Cook it for awhile to melt cheese and so corn tortillas become like soup.
ok I know these instructions are random since I didn't measure anything but trust me it's the best soup ever and if theres just 2 of you freeze the rest but you'll be surprised how much you'll eat by yourself. If it still needs a little kick I add some salsa.
Have a bowl of grated cheese to top it off with.
