1 cup sugar
1 tsp. corn syrup

Mix first four ingredients.  Bring to boil while stirring.  Remove from heat and add soda & vanilla.  Refrigerate leftovers.   Great on French Toast, but Tyler uses it on waffles and pancakes, too!

Quick Chicken Primavera Risotto


This is a quick recipe that tastes great. It's good for a busy evening. We serve it all in a bowl since it really doesn't need any side dishes except for maybe some fruit.

This looked like a fun page to utilize when making candy bar wrappers for teachers, friends, visiting teach-ees, etc.

Date Night

I had nothing to post on our blog so I thought I would add this photo to this one!
It's not in focus, but kind of fun to see.  
We miss out on a lot being so far north - we loved being with everyone!

Fall Dinner Date


Here's evidence of the good time had by all!! Sorry it was kind of dark at the end...it must be a loser flash!! Thanks for setting everything up Tracy and Alyssa! Just as a reminder...we did set FRIDAY, DECEMBER 26th as the date for the Winter Family Reunion. Be watching for your "Save the Date" card. And we will have more information coming! Thanks everyone! We love you all!!

Kneader's Fall Bread Dips

Kneader's was on Good Things Utah today with some yummy bread dips or toppings. Maybe it was that the treadmill just wasn't keeping my interest or the fact that I was starving... probably both; but, they looked really good. Check out the sweet topping one. Now, if pumpkin bread wasn't fattening enough. To add that Skor mixture stuff. That ought to put some meat on my boys' bones. 
I love Kneader's. I can't wait until Laken is 16. David has already convinced her that is where she is going to work. And knowing her ambition, perhaps own it someday. :)

Holiday Party Date


Hey...this is great...Thanks Lisa for getting it going! I would like to throw out there some thoughts on the Winter Holiday Party/Reunion! I hope this qualifies as a valid post! First off, we need to get a date scheduled. I was thinking about Friday, December 26th or Wednesday, December 31st. We are having a hard time coming up with a unique location, so we will probably go with the great standby...."church"! But, I was thinking we could make up for it by having delicious food and fun activities/crafts!! :) Which would bring us to Lisa and Leisa's ideas on jewelry?? We will plan other games and things for the kids etc. But if there was a fun "creating" project for some of us "older" girls...I think that would be great!! Well..anyway...let's start by getting the date secured! Let me know what would work best for all of you!

Happy Haunting


As many of you know, we love to spook. We got spooked last night with the cutest and easiest way ever. You don't have to photocopy any ghost or cut it out. You can print off the information and graphic on the site beenbooed.com. Too bad you can't place an order for orange and black buttercream frosted cupcakes to come with them to spook others with.

In a Rush Chicken Dinner


This recipe is one that will save you not one day but several days to come... plus the most important thing is that it is tasty. 

1/2 jar of Mango Salsa from Costco
Chicken breast or two 

Place both items in a crock pot on low for 8 hours (don't be afraid to use frozen; it works). Shred up the chicken. Serve up on tortillas (I like the uncooked ones made fresh on the griddle). Add cheese and sour cream if desired. Roll up and eat.

They make great filling for Chicken Enchiladas or other inventions you can think up. They warm up well for lunches at home, too!
