Yummy Cranberry Sauce!

I've never had cranberry sauce. In fact I've never known what people use it for during Thanksgiving. It never appealed to me because I thought people put it on their turkey or whatever. I didn't know. :) But, it wasn't until I asked someone that I found out. You simply eat it by itself (though some people do differently). When I started googling recipes for cranberry sauce and saw the actually looked pretty appealing. Apart from the canned cranberry sauce. That just reminds me of beets. And not the yummy type of beets. Anyway, when I made this, I couldn't believe how good it tasted! You'll probably have a few of these ingredients on hand

Delicous Kettle Popcorn


My favorite popcorn ever has to be kettle corn! I love the taste of it..with just a little bit of sugar on top. It makes a a fantastic snack, too. The only problem is that I can't stop eating it! Not only is this a salt free snack but low fat too. And, did you know that studies have shown that popcorn may even help fight diseases! Just had to throw a little benefit in, too!

Easily Make Your Own Glue!

Not only is this easy to make, but inexpensive, too. You probably already have the ingredients on hand. I didn't bother using organic flour for this because it's not like I will eat it, but if you prefer to, you can.
I've always wanted to make my own glue. I thought it would be pretty cool to personalize it by adding, glitter, etc. But, this time I made it plain, since I use white glue most often. To store the glue, you can keep it in an old glue bottle or any bottle that will be able to squeeze it out.. I stored mine in a mayonnaise bottle.

Apple Leather Strips

I love eating fruit roll ups and fruit leather. They're both deliciously good. But, my favorite flavor would be cherry and apple. Unlike some people, I will sometimes roll them up in a ball and pop them in my mouth. Anyway, I'd been meaning to make fruit leather for quite some time...and yesterday was just the right time to make them.

Say Yes To Local/Raw Honey!

 There are a few reasons why local honey is the best way to go. More than 60 % of the honey in the U.S. is imported from other countries. To some of you this may not be surprising since just about everything you buy is probably imported. Most of the honey that's imported is from China. Though it may not be coming directly from there.

Interestingly Moist Pumpkin Muffins!

 Once a week I go to a small group. When I go, I usually bring a snack. And today they asked us to bring a finger food/snack starting with the letter 'M'. I couldn't think of anything at the moment so I Googled it. Yes, it may seem weird, but I Googled it. And the first thing that popped up was muffins. That shouldn't be too hard. After all muffins are pretty simple/easy to make!
