Yummy stuff!

I decided to try making some yummy chocolate chip brownies. They were so good. The recipe is at the bottom of this post.


Chocolate Chip Brownies


Here are all of the things you need to make the brownies. Well, everything except you don't need my bamboo plant and candles that are in the background. :-)
Any recipe using this much brown sugar has to taste good right?

Ahhh, ready to go into the oven.


I think they were a hit.

You will need:
4 cups brown sugar
2 sticks butter
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
melt 2 sticks of butter and combine in a bowl with the brown sugar
then add 3 eggs, vanilla and flour slowly
stir in chocolate chips
bake at 350 for approx. 30 minutes
enjoy!!

The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns


I was excited to be able to review The Hole in Our Gospel book by Richard Stearns. He is the president of World Vision. In this book he poses the question, "What does God want from us?" He states that he believes the hole in our gospel is from lack of following through with people once they are saved. He focuses on the poorest of those in our world and tries to show that we need to be doing more for them.

I enjoyed reading about his personal calling and what got him to where he is today. The book was hard for me to get through because he used alot of statistics that seemed to be repetitive. He most definitely has an agenda with this book and seems to want you to believe what he does rather than have a feel for yourself. I did not like this part of the book.

Overall I thought the book was worth reading. It made me rethink a few things and also made me appreciate all that God has done for me even more.

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of the Booksneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive reveiw. All opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated for this review.

Here is my latest video using the new Block Party cart. This cart is exclusive at Walmart. They have 24 different ones.

I hope you enjoy the video.



Busy summer so far

This has already been an extremely busy summer. I don't know where all the time is going. It seems like we just finished school and I am already planning and purchasing books for next year. My kids will be in 9th and 6th. I have alot in store for them. We are going to be slam full with stuff to do.

I will post soon what we plan to use for school. Check back for that.

There are lots of neat things happening this summer. I have more videos coming up using more cute stamps by Victorine Originals. http://www.victorineoriginals.com/ I also have several books to review as I have now become a blogging for books reviewer as well. I also hope to be able to announce very soon about a great opportunity to work with another company. Keep checking back.

I guess this is long enough for now. I will be posting a new video shortly using the new Cricut Lite Block Party cartridge. I hope you come back to check it out.
