It Survived!!!


My bamboo that I planted days before the first deep freeze has survived ALL the freezes of this nasty winter we had here in Texas. 

It's a little yellow and a little dry but still most of it is still green. Woo- Hoo!!  It is doing great. 

So today I decided to help it along by fertilizing it with

Since Bamboo is in the grass family, this makes sense to me.  It's also Kid and Pet Friendly. A big plus. 

I sprinkled about 3/4 of a cup around each plant

Then I watered it really well

I cut off the stalks that were leaning out to far.

Now I will sit back and watch it grow. Can't wait for it to take off.

Holiday Diet Soup!

Holiday Diet Soup
This soup is not only tasty but is also good for you. And any soup that can help lose weight, I'm all for. I have made this a couple other times and it does seem to work. I like that I don't get hungry right before dinner, (which I usually do). This

How To Remove Wine Bottle Labels to Replace With Your Own!

***I thought I had this already on the blog. Sorry it is so late. Maybe you can do it for next year or any other special occasion you may have. 

How to replace wine bottle labels with your own personalized labels

This is the wine that we are going to re-label with our labels

Start with OXI Clean. Put about a 1/4 to 1/2 cup into a 
sink of very warm water. 

Swish it around to get the Oxi Clean working

Soak your bottles lying down or standing up for about an hour.
I actually left my in the water all night. Next morning they peeled
right off. 

Then check to see if your labels will just peel off very easy

Once your labels are off 

you can use an sos pad to remove the glue easily

Then rinse your wine bottles well 

Dry and they are ready for the new labels. 

Go online and find your labels you want.
They are free which is really nice. 
Design it anyway you want. 

These are ours for this year. 

Love them!

Enjoy! Easy to do!


Chocolate Eclair Cake!

  Chocolate Eclair Cake
Hands down. One of the best desserts I have ever made. The crust is flaky, not dry. The cake itself is so light and fluffy, it's hard to stop eating it. Everyone loved this cake. I will be making this one again and again. I was concerned about the crust
