Be The Perfect Guest: Appropriate Behavior and DIY Hostess Gifts

  It's sad but I've hosted many events where there is someone who behaves so poorly that I make a note never to invite them back.  I still have some folks whom I don't speak to due to their rudeness at my son's wedding, and that was over 3 years ago!  During the upcoming holiday season many of us will find ourselves guests at various holiday functions.  Whether it be Thanksgiving dinner with family, an office Christmas party, or a friend's New Year's Eve bash it is important to ...

Beef Afritada Recipe!!!

Beef afritada is a variation of the popular Chicken Afritada which is a basic Filipino tomato based chicken stew. Instead of chicken, you use beef. Basic ingredients include potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes. Unlike Chicken Afritada the only drawback about using beef is the time it takes to prepare.  Basically it takes longer for beef to become tender than chicken or pork.  So most of the time is spent continuously cooking the beef in medium heat until it becomes tender. I highly recommend ...

DIY Banner Cake Toppers

If you're a Pinner on Pinterest like we are you'll have noticed how popular Banner Cake Toppers are these days.  If you're not sure what they are they're the string of miniature flags strung together on posts and stuck into cakes.  I love the idea!  It's more fun than writing "Happy Birthday" on the cake itself. You can buy these Banner Cake Toppers at most party stores and online. They start at about $8 for a basic kit.  But what you can buy are the generic types that say "Happy Birthday" ...

Twins are very special and planning a birthday party for them is double the fun!  This month we celebrated my twin grandchildren's first birthday party.   There are so many fun themes for twins' parties it was hard to choose just one.  After much consideration my daughter-in-law choose to do a "Onerderland" party, a take off on the beloved kid's classic "Alice in Wonderland", after all the twins will only turn "One" once.

Jett’s Thomas the Train 2nd. Birthday Party

Last month we hosted my grandson, Jett's, 2nd. birthday party at our community park.  Trains, particularly Thomas the Train, is Jett's current passion so it was only natural that his party was a Thomas themed event. Unfortunately there was a mix up with the delivery time of the party rentals, we had to scramble to set up when the rentals arrived an hour late.  It also rained during our set up time and we got pretty wet before the tent arrived.  Of course as expected the sun came out ...
