Favorite Thing: Tile Mate

Hi there!  My friend surprised me with the sweetest, most thoughtful gift for my birthday.  She remembered that I had told her about the time that I was coaching my five year old's soccer team (that's another story, they were desperate for ANYONE to coach) and almost missed a whole game because I couldn't find my keys.  I just remembered that I blogged about that day (my post was labeled Lessons Learned From a Frazzled Soccer Coach).

So, yesterday my friend brought me the most life changing gift. A Tile Mate.

It's a key finder.  A phone finder.  Or an anything finder.  But for me it's life changing.  

I am constantly losing my keys and my phone, but I think those days are over.

All you have to do is download the TILE app on your phone and sync it to your tile.  You can put your tile on anything that you want to find.  I put it on my keys.  
If you lose your keys you open the app on your phone and it makes your tile ring and it has all kinds of info about the location of your keys.  

If you want to find your phone, just double click the tile and it makes your phone ring, even if it was on silent.  Amazing!  

There is also this other style, the Tile Slim that you can adhere to anything, like your wallet or whatever.  It doesn't have the hole in it, but comes with adhesive.  

Anyway...I thought I'd share this with you.  It was the most thoughtful gift and I'm super excited about it.  I have the best family and friends and was amazed at the thoughtfulness of people on my birthday yesterday.  So many messages, texts, happy birthday wishes in person, and gifts.  I am blessed!

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

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

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
