Sweet Popcorn

Place candy melts in a plastic baggie and microwave for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and squish the bag a bit to ensure all the candy melts are melted completely. Snip a tiny corner off the bag and drizzle the candy melts over a large bowl of popcorn. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, or until melts have hardened. Add mini chocolate chips, mini marshmallows or sprinkles or really anything you have in your pantry. Cookies, candy - everything tastes good mixed with popcorn. I have pretzels, raisins and chocolate candy in ours.

Chocolate Mousse Recipe

The past couple of weeks, my little one has been begging me to make Chocolate Mousse. I kept telling her to remind me to pick up cream at the grocery store. It took a couple of trips, but I finally remembered. The first time I purchased half and half instead of whipping cream and guess where the cream is still sitting, not used?

This recipe can be a bit labor intensive, but a labor of love for sure. So what better time to make it than for the upcoming holiday . . . Valentine's Day. This Chocolate Mousse is the perfect end to a date night with your loved ones.

Heart Cut-Out Cupcakes for Valentine's Day

My daughters are little violinists. Music is part of who they are, even though they are so young. They have both been playing their violins for five years and they love to share their love of music with others. They do this by playing services in our church. They share their love of music with our church music director who is also our organist, Miss Linda.

My daughters adore Miss Linda and love to bring her special gifts and treats for holidays. Miss Linda is recently widowed and retired, although she still plays every Sunday in church. She has no grandchildren of her own and my girls have adopted her so she can have them! Since Valentine's is fast approaching, we wanted to be fully prepared with treats and gifts for Miss Linda for all the time she volunteers getting my girls prepared for services.
