I'm In Heaven-Chocolate Cloud Cookies

Good Morning dear readers,  I saved the best for last-cookies.  Now I know what the cookie monster feels like, me want cookies.  These are to die for so light and fluffy.  I used a cake mix and they turned out just so good.  The boys have been asking me to make cookies with macadamia nuts.  This is what I came up with so yummy.  This is the type of cookie you binge watch episodes of your favourite shows i.e. call the midwife, zoo and elementary to name a few.  Here's what you'll need:

1-Box Chocolate Cake Mix-Used Pillsbury
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons Butter
4 Tablespoons Water
2oz Bag Macadamia Nuts
2oz Bag Sliced Almonds

Mix first 5 ingredients together until blended(I used a hand mixer).  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Fold in nuts and mix.  Take a round mound of dough using teaspoon and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet(I used wax paper).  Let cook for 10-12 minutes makes about 2 dozen.  Bon appetite.

Caturday Art-The eyes have it kitty

Good Morning dear readers, we are participating in the Caturday Art Hop at Athena and Marie's Art Hop.  It's been a crazy week boy went back to school.  Well its what mom calls independent study and he only goes one day a week.  He leaves me for several hours not good.  Do you get upset when your humans leave or don't pay attention to you.  I've discovered this interesting toy to get their attention.  Oddly enough its attached to doors.  It makes this doining noise when I paw it.  Mom gets upset especially when its really dark outside.  She tells me to knock it off.  She's not going to get up at 3am.  Any ways boy took me out to the catio and let me look around.  Mom got photos of me being held by boy.  She played with picmonkey and pizap for today's photo.

Frugal Vegetable Beef Soup

Good Morning dear readers,  here's another recipe I promised to replace not posting the shopping trip.  Yes, we are revisiting my favorite soup base-pasta sauce and tomato soup.  I feel if you have these two items in your pantry. You will always be able to make soup. This is also the perfect way to get your kids to eat their veggies, because their are pureed veggies in the pasta sauce.  This time we used ground beef and mixed veggies and it turned out so yummy.  This recipe is so versatile you can change it up and make your own version.  Who knows I might make a shrimp version?  Here's what you'll need:

1 lb. ground beef
1 jar pasta sauce
1 soup can tomato soup
1 lb. mixed veggies
1 15 oz. can beef broth
2 soup cans water
onion powder to taste

Brown your meat in large pot.  Run warm water over your frozen veggies to defrost them a little. Then place in pot with meat.  Add all your sauces, soup and water mix up.  Season with onion powder. Let come to a boil and simmer covered for 15-20 minutes

here's the link to the other soup recipe using the same base

Easy Asian Ribs

Good Morning dear readers, sorry for the lack of posts. Here's the first of a couple of recipes that I hope will make up for not posting. I wanted to cook dead man bones the Halloween rib recipe but alas no marmalade(I only use marmalade in this recipe).  As you all know I love Asian food.  I took my favorite basic barbecue sauce and hoisin and made them into Asian ribs.  These definitely are so good and yummy.  You will want a lot more.  All you need is just 3 ingredients and your oven,  So here's what you'll need:

3 lbs ribs 
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup hoisin

Mix the sauces together and then bast the ribs with the sauce.  Put in the oven at 400 degrees 45 minutes to an hour.  Serve with your favorite baked beans Bon appetite.

For those of you who are curious about Dead man bones here's the link:

Please be sure and check out my zazzle shop.  I have a lot of fun cooking and kitchen related items heres a few for your viewing pleasure.

Caturday Art-Dreamy Kitty

Good Morning dear readers,  I am participating in Athena Cat Goddess Caturday Art Hop.  Mom was snapping away with the little blue box much to my horror.    Can't the humans understand all I want to do is sleep.   Well I do love my people especially my boy but he does have a tendency to hug and kiss me to much.   I love to cuddle with my mom at night.  What does your human do that annoys you?  Mom played in picmonkey and pizap her favourite programs.   The photos didn't turn out to bad.  I like the last one. It has a dreamy quality.

Thrifting Haul-"The Cat Made Me Buy It"

Good Afternoon dear readers,  I was able to pick up one item during a recent thrift store visit.  It was just to cute not to buy.  It's a book of advertising images from the early 20's and 30's.  Plus I thought I might try to draw some of the images. We will have to see how that goes.  For your enjoyment here are some of the crazy photos.

Now wouldn't you buy something if a cat was in the ad think about it?

Caturday Art-Paint By The Numbers Kitty

Good Morning dear readers, mom caught me trying to play with the board games this week.  I had to suffer while she took photos of me.  All I did was try to open something called Risk and lay on some cards with words on them (uno cards).  Moms like oh no you are not making a mess with all those pieces.  I had to let her take pictures of me sitting on the box. They didn't turn out so well.  So mom arted them up and here they are.

                                                       Here's the original.

note:  this design will be in the shop.  You can check it out by hitting the side panel of my shop thanks for reading.  Dear readers can you help me get to 1000 likes on fb please like my page.

Going Cajun-Red Beans and Rice

Good Morning dear readers,  here's another lovely recipe.  This recipe reminds me of the years I spent in Louisiana.  It's a hearty and healthy recipe no meat required.  The boys just love it so most kids will eat it,  especially if my picky eaters  like it.  Another reason I like this recipe it cooks in my dutch oven.  I did cook the instant rice before adding it to the dish. I want to make sure everything cooks likes it supposed too.  I had it happen in one recipe that you did not need to precook the rice and that was a disaster.  So I always precook rice. I adapted this recipe from recipe lion to fit my families needs.  Here's all the ingredients you'll need:

One dutch oven or large pot
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 small green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1-15 oz can Beef Broth
1-15.5 oz can Red Kidney Beans, drained
1-Bag Cooked Success Rice
Paul Prudhomme Seafood Seasoning just to taste unless you like it real hot.

Saute onion and pepper in vegetable oil in large pot.  Cook until onions are clear.  Add garlic let cook for 1-2 minutes.  Add your broth and let boil.  Then place on simmer add your beans and rice to dish..  Then add seasoning to taste.  Cover and cook for about 15 minutes.  Bon Appetite.
