What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

Happy Birthday Pardner
This Friday we will be celebrating this 'lil pardner's 68th birthday.Isn't this photo adorable? A photographer came around with a pony and my Nanny just had to get one done of my Dad. The outfit seemed to fit perfectly!
My Dad has always had an enormous sweet tooth. And, I've always been there to help fill it. The first thing he does when they stop by to visit is check the kitchen counter to see what kind of goodies are there.
Well, at his January check-up the Doctor told him that his sugar was high. So, I haven't baked anything with him in mind. Now granted January was right after Christmas and he went hog wild eating everything that was in sight. But, I'm not taking any chances.
Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for a great sugar-free chocolate and peanut butter dessert? I always make him a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing for his birthday, but I'm sure if the flavors are the same he'll love it. I've found a few recipes on-line, but want something that someone recommends.
Thanks and I hope that you are enjoying your week!
