Blood Orange Margaritas for Friday's Happy Hour

Today I am serving Blood Orange Margaritas for Friday's Happy Hour and boy are they delicious.  I was so excited when I found DeKuyper's Blood Orange Liqueur last April, and I have been adding it to drinks ever since.  I was so excited, when I thought about adding it to a margarita.  It was the perfect addition, it made it sweeter, which I prefer, rather then sour.  I know you are going to like it also.

Blood Orange Margaritas


4 oz tequila
3 oz DeKuyper Blood Orange Liqueur
4 oz orange juice
1 oz lime juice
2 oz agave nector or simple syrup


Rim a glass with sugar and add ice to the glass

Mix all ingredients together and pour over ice.

Serves 2

 I hope that you enjoy these Blood Orange Margaritas for Happy Hour tonight.  It is so good.  I can't wait.  I think I'll serve guacamole and chips with it.  Ewww, and maybe some taquitos.  How fun!!!

Have a great Happy Hour.

Baked Bacon N' Egg Cups

I made these Bacon N' Egg Cups for Vince, Danny, and I one morning and they were so good.  They are really easy to make and a great breakfast for kids in the morning.  I did pre-cook the bacon, so that it would be a little crispy.  I like my bacon on the crispy side.

Bacon N' Egg Cups


6 slices of bacon cooked in the microwave for 5 minutes
6 eggs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 6 cup silicone muffin pan with non stick cooking spray.

Put your bacon inside each muffin cup, around the edge.

Break one egg into each muffin cup inside of the bacon wrapped edge.

Sprinkle cheese on top.

Put on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the egg is cooked.

Remove the pan from the oven and pop the Bacon N' Egg Cups out of the muffin pan and serve.  Vince and Danny put them on toast, but they also suggested that we put toast in the bottom of each muffin cup next time.  If I do that I will post it.

HTML Grab Button for Blogger

Today I am doing a tutorial on how to make an HTML Grab Button for Blogger.  Last spring I went into my button code to help someone else with their button, and lost my grab box.  I didn't know that Google had changed the format for the Grab Box, and have not had a Grab Box since.  When Diana from Diana Rambles came to visit me this summer, she explained what had happened, but I was a little lazy, and never took the time to make new grab boxes.  I figured it was about time, but realized that some of you may need some help also.  I found a tutorial at Code It Pretty that was great.  You can also go there to see her tutorial.

<div class="Adorned From Above" style="width: 150px; margin: 0 auto;"> <a href="" rel="nofollow"> <img src=" ba6d2031c99a_zpsca7fdec4.jpg" alt="Adorned From Above" width="150" height="150" /> </a> </div>

HTML Grab Button Blogger Tutorial

1.  The first thing you will need to do is pick an image that you want to use for your button.  I made this at

2. Then I uploaded it to  I then resized the picture to 150 pxl x 150 pxl.  It was originally 1000 x 1000 pxls

3.  You will then to work on your html code so that you get your picture and your grab box together.   The code below is what I used for my Link Party Grab Box.  I did this in notepad.  Just copy and paste.

<!--grab button header-->
<div class="grab-button" style="width: 150px; margin: 0 auto;>
<img src="" alt="Grab button for Your Blog Name" width="150" height="150" />
<!--end grab button header--

<!-- button code box -->
<div style="margin: 0;
padding: 0;
border: 1px black;
width: 150px;
height: 150px;
overflow: scroll;">
&lt;div class="Your-Blog-Name-Button" style="width: 150px; margin: 0 auto;"
&lt;a href="" rel="nofollow">
&kt;img src="" alt="Your Blog Name" width="150" height="150" />
</div> <!--end grab-button--></div>

Change green text to the button pizel size
Change the red text to your blog's link
Change the blue text to the Name of You Blog
Change the fuscha text to the link for your picture in photobucket

4.  You can also change your button size by changing the green text to the pixel size your prefer.  

5.  You can change the margin size in the Button Code Box by changing the number of pixels for the margin.  You can also change the color to a color different from black by just typing in a new color.

5. To find the link for your picture in photobucket, you will hover over your picture and you click on the wheel and then click get links. Click in the direct link box.  It will say copied.  Then just paste it over the link for my picture link.

7. Next, pick your gadget,  it is the HTML/Java Third Party Script.  Give it a name, I named my Link Party Button.  Then I copied the text from Notepad and pasted it into my Widget's text box.

8.  Save, and then I clicked Preview, to make sure that it looked right.  If something is wrong, check your code and your different links.

9.  It should be working fine.  Again, since I am not an expert, I would refer back to Code It Pretty

I hope that this helps you to make a new HTML Grab Button for Blogger.  It really helped me a lot If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Have a great day.

Mia Scarf now at All Free Knitting

I am very excited to announce that my Mia Scarf Pattern is on All Free Knitting.  Julie DaMario was kind enough to contact me about putting some of my knit patterns on All Free Knitting and this is the first one that I have sent to her.  

Here is the link to it on this website, but you will also be able to find it at All Free Knitting.  I'll announce future patterns published there as it happens.

This would be a great and easy scarf to make for a Christmas gift.

Happy Holidays.

John 3:16 and a 3 Year Old

I never tire of hearing John 3:16, and I have shared it with all of you before, but today I want to share it from a special little 3 year old girl.

Several weeks ago a friend of ours little girl got a special tiger vest at Sunday School.  She is 3 years old and she had to memorize a bible verse to receive her vest, specifically John 3:16.  When I was talking with her I asked what the verse said, and in her sweet little 3 year old voice, she said, "For God so love the world he sent his only begotten Son."  She was so very proud of herself.  She was so sweet and cute I needed to share it with everyone.

So today I am sharing the whole verse.  It will take her a little longer to memorize the rest, but I know that she will have it down soon.  I am very honored to know this little 3 year old.  She is quite adorable, and by the way so is her 5 year old sister.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Have a blessed day.
