Good Morning dear readers,  we are back with another murder mystery food recipe.  For those of you who don't know my blog I cook the recipes found in murder mystery cozies.  This recipe comes to us from "Bookmarked for Death"  by Lorna Barrett.  This is a entertaining little book with all the quirky characters and makes for a good read. You wont figure out who dun nit until the end.  On to the recipe this was altered to fit my families needs.  Here's what you need to make these yummy brownies.  Here's a hint they smell and taste like Reese's.

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar

1-11oz bag peanut butter and milk chocolate chips

Melt butter in a sauce pan. Mix in brown sugar and eggs stir well. Slowly add mix to flour bowl.
Fold in chips with metal spoon batter will be stiff (its peanut butter).  Spread batter in 13x9 pan make sure pan is greased.  Set oven to 350 degrees  and  bake for 30 minutes. Let cool and transfer to wire rack.  Makes 2 dozen.

unstuffed pepper casserole

Good Morning dear readers,  yes we have a new recipe to share. I've been seeing a lot of recipes that take the stuffing out of the roll or the veggie.  I wanted to try my hand at creating this wonderful comfort food.  Everyone always eats what's leftover from the pepper so why not dispense with the pepper. This was a taste of home recipe that I altered to fit my families needs:  I ended up using things that were already in my pantry.  I like those kinds of recipes when you don't have to run to the store to get items you need to make the recipe. So here's what you need

1 lb ground turkey (you can use ground beef)
2 bags of success rice
1 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of black pepper
1 can tomato sauce (15 oz) only use half in the casserole the rest will be drizzled on top
1 bag frozen pepper and onion mix  (mine was a fajita mix)

Brown your meat in skillet or dutch oven.  Boil success rice until done.  Combine ground meat, rice and veggies, mix in spices and sauce.  Drizzle remaining tomato sauce on top. Cook in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and your done.  Note I did not saute veggies if you want you can try it that way.  I put mine in frozen.  Bon appetite your kids are gonna love it plus they eat their veggies.

Caturday Art-Water Color and Nature Kitty

Good Morning dear readers,  mom decided that since the photos were only head shots. She would use them in selfie Sunday.  She used an old photo for caturday art.  It's been a busy week but mom accomplished her goal of getting those VA paper thingies done.  She left me alone with the boys for  eight hours.  How dare she I want my mom the boys are always hugging on me.  Don't get me wrong I love my boys. In fact my boy had his human birthday yesterday.  Darn it they would not give me any cake and they put the box away.  So I couldn't claim it.  So here's my photos that were done in picmonkey and pizap.

                                           took original put frame around it in picmonkey

                                          this was done with a watercolor overlay in pizap

                                          this was a nice surprise with the nature overlay

Caturday Art-Victorian Lace and Flowers Kitty

Good morning dear readers,  Happy Fourth Of July to everyone.  We are joining in the Caturday Art Hop at Athena and Marie's Caturday Hop.  Be sure and protect your kitties and the woofies today.  A lot of pets go missing on this day every year.  So make sure they have a safe and secure place to ride out the noise today.  Mom has made the back bedroom my safe place where  I will be listening to NPR on the little pink box to drown out the noise of the fire boomers.  I have my blankie to hide under this is the one that I use when the boys watch scary movies. So I know it keeps the bad stuff 
away. I'm not happy with mom right now.  She made me look like a girl in the latest art photo.  I am a Man Cat here me roar.  So here it is she calls it Victorian Lace and Flowers Kitty.  I'm so embarrassed to even be seen connected to the photo.

                                                        Mom says I have pretty eyes.
                                                        She did a blue overlay.                                                        

                                        Then she went to pizap and added the flowers and lace.
