Christmas Decorating

Haven't posted in quite awhile.  November was a busy month for me.  But I wanted to update my blog and hopefully inspire myself to get into the Christmas decorating spirit.  I've visited all my favorite blogs and some others for inspiration.  Hopefully this will get my into a decorating mood! So might as well tackle redoing my blog for starters.  Hope everyone is enjoying putting up their tree and festive decorations! Happy Holidays to all!

I love October!!!

October is such a wonderful month! The weather is getting crisp and Halloween is coming.  We can plan to decorate, or not.  Whatever you want to do is fine.  Me...I like to decorate for Halloween.  I think this came about because my daughter was born in October, and she always wanted to decorate her birthday with a Halloween theme.  So, I continue the tradition.  She and I both love the fall and October!   So, if you haven't checked out some wonderful blogs that decorate for fall and Halloween, I suggest you check them out!  Go Susan's TableScape Thursday at Between Naps on the Back porch!  Follow her fellow bloggers that post their Tablescapes for that day.  Also, check out A Fanciful Twist for a real spookey time.  You can get to these blogs on my sidebar under Pretty Places to Visit.  Enjoy!  And Happy Fall!!!

Jalapeno Jelly

I think I'm finally getting settled in my new job, and wanted to share with you my latest cooking project.  I have been wanting to make Jalapeno Jelly for a while now.  I finally got around to doing it .... so here's the process! 

Recipe I used from "Simply Simpatico...A Taste of New Mexico" Cookbook.

1 1/2 cups finely chopped, seeded green pepper (I used red bell pepper)
1 cup finely chopped and seeded jalapeno peppers
6 1/2 cups granulated sugar (I used 5 1/2)
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
1/4 tsp green food coloring
1 6 oz bottle liquid fruit pectin.

                                                   Get your jars ready for canning!

                                                    Get your ingredients together!!!

Chop up your red peppers!!!

Chop and remove the seeds from your jalapenos!!!

Mix the peppers, cider vinegar and sugar in a 4-6 quart saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.

Add the liquid fruit pectin and bring to a full, rolling boil again, stirring constantly for 1 minute.  Remove from burner and let stand for a minute or two and then skim off foam.  Add food coloring (if desired).  Pour into hot sterilized jelly jars and seal.  Serve with game or over cream cheese with crackers.

Finished product!!!

Hope you make your own batch of Jalapeno Jelly!!!

Till next time......Dee Dee

Cino De Mayo!!!

Hola Lady's!  In case some of you don't know, I am in love with New Mexico!  Especially Santa Fe!  This is where I met my sweet husband.  Even though I am from San Antonio, I love the culture of Santa Fe!  I was fortunate to live there for 3 years and experience the wonderul climate and culture.   Some of my recipes (salsa and Margarita's, Carne Adovada) originate from there.  I am here to help you celebrate your own Cino de Mayo!  Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating! 



Margarita salt, for rim

Lime wedge, for rim and garnish


2 ounces tequila

1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice

1 ounce simple syrup, see Cook's Note

1/2 ounce green chile juice, see Cook's Note


Put some salt on a flat dish. Moisten the rim of the margarita glass with the lime wedge and dip it in to the salt.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and green chile juice to the shaker and shake vigorously for 3 seconds. Pour into the salted glass and garnish with the lime wedge.

Cook's Note:

To make the simple syrup, heat 1 part water and 1 part granulated sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Cool before using.

To prepare the green chile juice, put 1 New Mexico green chile in a blender with 1 ounce of water and blend thoroughly. Strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer and transfer to a squeeze bottle. If New Mexico green chiles are not available, serrano chiles may be substituted.

Carne Adovada (Marinated Pork)

2-4 Pounds Pork shoulder roast
2 tsp Salt
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp whole leaf oregano
1 qt blended red chili

Sprinkle meat with salt.  Add garlic and oregano t blended chili.  Pour over meat and marinate in refrigator overnight.  Cook in Slow Cooker for 6-8 hours on low.                                                   

Serve with flour tortillas, onions and cheese

Red Chili Sauce

16-18 dried red chili pods
Hot water
2 cloves garlic
Salt to tase

Open each dried red chili pod.  Wash well inside and out and remove blemishes.  Remove stems, some
seeds and veins.  Rinse with cold water and soak in hot water for one hour or until soft.  Place the podsin an electric blender and add enough water to almost cover them, leaving about two inches headspace.  Blend until smooth and skins appear, about 2-3 minutes.  If sauce seems to be too thick, add more water and blend for another 1 minute or until skins disppear.  Add 2 cloves garlic and process until well blended.  Salt to taste.     



4 to 5 Tomatoes
2 Cans of Rotel Tomatoes (either mild or hot)
1/2 small onion
1 large Poblano Pepper or 4 Japalenos
1 lime
Cilantro (if desired)
2 cloves of garlic
Salt & Pepper

Combine rotel tomates in your Food Processor.  Add tomatoes, onion, peppers, cilantro and garlic.  Process until desired texture.  Add juice of one lime and salt and pepper to taste. 

Serve with Chips

I've been researching more recipes.  I like to change it up a bit once the weather starts warming up.  So bear with  me.  I will post more soon.  Hope ya'll have a wonderful weekend.  Happy Friday!

Weekly post

Hello All!  Spring is coming!!!

Here are some menu's for March.  I've been busy having little birthday parties.  My mother had a birthday, then my granddaughter, and now my mother-in-law will be this weekend, so I thought I'd better get busy and post a menu early.  I won't have time this weekend.  Hope y'all have had a nice start to the week.  It's been fairly nice weather.   I think I'll have to start my veggie garden soon!   


 Sun            Mon           Tues            Wed           Thur              Fri           Sat

Egg           Baked         Chicken       BBQ        Enchilada      Left            Homemade
Rolls         Chicken         Salad       Pork         Cassarole       Overs         Pizza
with         w/herb                            Sandw.
Rice         Potatos
               & green

If you haven't tried making egg rolls, it is a very simple process.  You will need a deep fryer for best results.  I use hamburger meat, onions, and a package of coleslaw.  Don't forget your egg role wraps.  Fry up your hamburger and onions.  Drain meat on a papertowel.  Directions are on the pkg of wraps on how to fold.  Just fill with your meat and coleslaw.  Seal each wrap with a bit of water and fry up.  You can make your own sauce, which every type you like.  Or buy already made.  This is an easy recipe.  I make plain white rice and add a can of mixed veggies to it for a bit of flavor. 

Enchilada Casserole (super easy)

1 lb of ground beef
1/2 med onion, chopped
12 corn tortilla's
1 can enchilada sauce
2 cups shredded cheese

Brown your meat, drain on a papertowel.  Fry your tortilla's to soften.  In a large cassarole dish layer with tortillas, meat, onion, cheese.  Repeat layers.  Cover with enchilada sauce and top with cheese.  Bake at 350 degree's for 15 to 20 minutes. 

BBQ pork sandwiches:  You can purchase the ready made or make your own using my slow cooker recipe. 

Homemade Pizza:

I purchase the ready made pizza dough, usually you get 2 pizza circles in one package, buy the ready make sauce and a package of pepperoni.  Cheeses can be whatever you like.  Add onions, olives, mushrooms, and any other toppings you like.  Cook according to package directions. 

Baked Chicken:  I purchase 1 whole chicken.  If you don't have a small roaster, I would highly recommend you purchase one.  They are great for chicken and roasts.  I clean my chicken, add salt and pepper.  Put in your roaster, add a little butter on top.  You can add potatoes and carrots if you like.  Bake for about 45 minutes to one hour on 350 degree's.   Sooo delicious.

Chicken Salad:  Use any leftover chicken from your roasted chicken. 

Have a wonderful week, and happy cooking!!!

Menu of the Week

 Finally getting around to the menu!  I've been busy this weekend.  My grandkiddos came over to the house for a visit yesterday.  So, you know what that means!  Time to play!  My daughter-in-law and I took my granddaughter to the boot store to get her a new pair of boots. She got pink boots, and a pink cowgirl hat with rhinestones on the hat band!  She is ALL decked out for the rodeo!  The boy's got new boots also, and cowboy hats!  Gosh if they didn't remind me of when their dad (my son) was a boy and I took him to get his first boots and hat!  What a fun day! 

Well, here's the menu.  I'm going to add Sunday .... since it's Valentines!  You can use my idea, or choose your own, of course!

The Pantry

A convenient place for storing and displaying your kitchen goods. 

To most people, a traditional pantry means a cool, dark room near the kitchen, a room stocked with fresh foods and canned goods and filled with the scents of herbs and spices.  Before home refrigeration became common in the late 1800's, this versatile storage and work room-usually fitted with a stone or wood sink-could be found in most homes.  Shelves held seasonings, meal, and sugar, dairy products were kept on a stone or dirt floor.                                                                                                                                  

Today many homeowners don't have the space in their houses to devote a whole room to pantry storage.  But, with a little imagination, it is still possible to create the effect of a pantry in almost any kitchen.  You might try using an old pie safe to store kitchenware.  Or, fill a wall of open shelving with jars of preserves.  Even tabletops and corners can evoke a pantry feeling when set up to dry herbs and vegetables or to store wares and utensils.                                                                                                                                  

From: The Country Kitchen, Time Life Books 1988.

I wanted to share this with you.  If you are lucky enough to have any space for a pantry, they can be so handy! 


What a wonderful idea! Turn any corner into a Pantry!

Or change a small closet!  Remove the doors and add shelves! 

Happy Weekend!  Will post a new menu tomorrow!
