Shutterfly Holiday

So, I know this is a food blog and this post is entirely not food related, but I've decided to do a little Shutterfly post today.  Since it's my blog and all....And I love Shutterfly.

In the past I've never sent out photo Christmas cards, but I love receiving them from other people.  Sometimes I save them after Christmas so we can look at them.  It's a great way to help my kids remember what our family and friends look like since we live far away from most of them.

Shutterfly has so many fabulous holiday cards.  It's hard to choose which one I like the best.  This year I'm going to join the holiday card sending club and mail my loved ones some great cards!

I love the new folded greeting cards.  I really like this one:
I thought it was perfect since I have three kids and there are three "o"s.  Super cute!

And I like this one.  Simple and classy. 

Hard to choose which one.  I love them both.  But if I have to choose, I'd have to pick the Seasonal Chic 2010 folded card.

I also LOVE their wall calendars.  They make perfect gifts.  I love all their cute backgrounds, like this one.

My friend, Julia, has some canvas wall art in her home.  I love it.  They'd make a fun, personalized gift too.  I should give my family some wall art this year.
I also just finished my first photo book from Shutterfly the other day.  I can't wait to get it in the mail.  It was so fun to make and easy too!

Check out to get some great holiday gifts this year.  Easy, fun, and personalized.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
