2 Crazy Good Recipes!

Okay, first up is the Ham, Asparagus, Potato Quiche. Yum.  Very Yum.  We have it for dinner sometimes with a salad.
 1 box of refrigerated Pie Crust (or make your own)
1 Cup Frozen (thawed), Cubed, Potatoes (or make your own)
1 Cup 1/2 inch pieces of Asparagus
1 Cup Diced Ham
(I always make this when I've had a Ham and have a lot of left overs, but you can also use Canadian Bacon but it's not as good in my opinion)
1 1/2 Cups Shredded Cheese (I use the 4 cheese Mexican mix)
4 Eggs
1 Cup Milk
1/2 tsp Marjoram 
1/4 tsp Salt
Heat Oven to 375 degrees.  Bake pie crust for 8-10 minutes till light golden brown.  Layer potatoes, asparagus, ham, and cheese in the pie crust.  Beat eggs, milk, marjoram, and salt until well blended.  Pour over mixture in pie plate and bake for 45-50 minutes or until knife in center comes out clean.  Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.  In my oven it always takes the full 50 minutes.

Now For The Crazy Yummy Dessert Dip

Cannoli Dip
1 8 oz Package of Cream Cheese (softened)
1/2 Cup (1 stick) Butter (softened)
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsps Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Confectioners Sugar
3/4 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
Chocolate Graham Crackers

Beat softened cream cheese and butter with the vanilla till creamy.  Slowly add the sugars until blended.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Refrigerate for 1 hour.  Serve with chocolate graham crackers.

Porcelain, Stoneware, Porcelain, Stoneware, Porcelain....

You get the idea.  That's what I have been doing ... make porcelain beads, make stoneware beads, make some more porcelain beads, go back to the stoneware...
  I've been making smooth round beads.  A LOT of smooth round beads.  I've been making textured beads.  A LOT of textured beads.  They take forever to make!  I worked all day Wednesday and at the end of the day I felt like it should have been 3 times more beads to show for it.
I must say, I love the little textured ones...

 Here are some of the finished beads in a bazillion colors!
Very very soon they will be grouped by color and listed on my website and in my Etsy shop.  Once I get ahead with my stock of beads they will become a staple in both places.
I have also been making pendants.  I listed a bunch of new ones in my shop today.  I love hearts for Valentines Day.  We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day at my house - well, we have pink milk and if we are having mashed potatoes they are pink too, but that's about as exciting as it gets around here.  But, I do love hearts!  and I do love the idea of Valentine's Day so if you are looking for some heart pendants check out my shop cause I have a bunch (I'll be listing more tomorrow or Monday)
 Some of these other pieces have also been listed today

 Moving on, you will be happy to know that my case of Shingles (yes, Shingles) that started between Thanksgiving and Christmas is FINALLY starting to go away! yay!  It's been making me a tad cranky but things are on the upswing mood wise.  I'm looking forward to the new year.  I have a lot of plans for my little business.  New items, new patterns, new colors.  Fun.  Have a great weekend!  I'll let you know when the rest of the new pieces are listed.
