knitting, knitting, and more knitting!

I really have been doing a lot of knitting lately....but...ummm...not posting any of it! Why? I have no idea! Here are some of my more recent projects from the last few months.

A sweater for a sweet baby boy (not mine) 
A sweater that was supposed to be done LAST fall, for my dear is too small now...
Aviatrix hat from my own handspun.  I LOVE it!
A SanDiego Chargers hat for my sweetums' birthday gift
A cute and bright owl headband for my swap buddy
Another headband for the swap
A sweet preemie bear hat, in memory of a sweet baby girl who was too good for this world
A crazy colour hat knit from my handspun
A little chemo cap for the niece of a lady in my bible study
Some little scrubbies...there were 10..but this picture is cuter than the one with all 10 in it.
A super last minute bunny ear hat for our "Max" of "Max and Ruby" for Halloween
Hats for a charity hat challenge
A beautiful blanket pattern...but...not working out for me in this yarn... I can't wait to find some nice superwash wool, this pattern is WONDERFUL!!!
A cowl for another swap... the colour is hidden so if someone finds the picture..they won't know :D

Now...HOW have I knit and crocheted so much!?!?! turns out that I'm a wee bit competitive...and if you perhaps join some sort of knitting game...with points and challenges...and prizes...I will forgo the dishes in favour of knitting!!!  My poor house...LOL...

Our anniversary...all year long

So, I've found "Plan to Eat"  meal planning system.... I'm on my 30 day trial but I'm pretty certain I'll be buying a year subscription.   I'm really loving how easy it is.   Seriously...check it out!

There is a link on my sidebar.

Anyways....all those recipes I've been pinning on I'm actually making some of them...because I can so easily add the recipe into Plan to Eat.  Then add it to my menu, and POOF!  All the ingredients are on my grocery list.  It's fabulous!

I made these the other day.   My husband really liked them.   He ate.... a lot of them...  At first he couldn't place where he knew this taste from, then I asked him about our anniversary.  We go to Red Lobster for our anniversary every year to "recreate" our wedding meal, of lobster and steak.   I usually end up having shrimp, scallops and crab more than lobster or steak!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits


Course: Appetizers


  • Biscuits:
  • 2 1/2 cups Bisquick
  • 4 Tbsp cold butter
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Butter Glaze:
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp dried parsley flakes


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease or line one cookie sheet with parchment; set aside.
  2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter (I just used 2 forks). Don’t worry about mixing too thoroughly; there will be small chunks of butter in the mix about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, and garlic powder. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
  3. Drop 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto the lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes in preheated oven or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
  4. While the biscuits are baking, melt butter is a small bowl in the microwave. Stir in garlic powder and dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread the garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Sprinkle a little kosher salt on the freshly coated biscuits. Makes one dozen.
  5. Need to use up some zucchini? Grate a small zucchini, about 3/4 cup. Strain the grated zucchini in a cheesecloth or some paper towels to get rid of the excess moisture. Add the grated zucchini to the biscuit batter when you add the cheese and milk.
