~ Farmhouse Rules ~

Okay, I found another great new cooking show... Farmhouse Rules!! I just caught a couple episodes of it last season and I loved it but could never find it on Food Network's I had to wait. Well, now it has returned to their schedule and they did the most incredible thing...they scheduled her after The Pioneer Woman on Saturday morning...yeeaahh!!!
I love this show. She lives in upstate New York in a breathtakingly beautiful  old brick farmhouse...You know it must be great because I have never used the word "breathtakingly" in any of my posts!!  Her dishes are more like comfort food favorite chow! She is fun to watch and has a hint of Paula Deen in her. She may even be the next Paula Deen...whom I am also still loyal to. I am just so happy because now I have a third great recipe source. Please watch it if you get a chance and let me know what you think. If you missed her show this morning, it repeats Monday evening at 5:30 pm on Food Network.
Take Care,

Bloom Where You Are Planted

 Spring is in the air and Easter is a couple of days away. I just had to get outside for awhile before the rain comes and take a look at all of the beautiful colors. North Carolina is bursting with splashes of pink, white, red and purple...The azaleas are in full bloom and they are everywhere!!
 I was so happy to see a couple of buds on the irises this year because none of our lillies bloomed last year ... This particular iris is my favorite, it's a beautiful peachy-pink color.
  The empty urn in the yard is now full with a mini hydrangea. It was cream and pink in the beginning and now it has turned all pink... darn potting soil!!
I finally found a gazing ball for my little garden...I have spent the last couple of years scouring garden centers in Virginia and any place  that I thought might possibly carry them...with no luck. My luck changed last week, however, when I walked into a pottery store here in Greenville. Imagine that... it has been here in town all along!!  I love it and I am so happy to finally have one.
This just proves that you should never give up!
