`Jingle` Awards

I am excited to say I have another new bloggy friend, and I just Love her name `Jingle.`
The name reminds me of bells jingling, perhaps on a sleigh ride, perhaps in a dime store.
(Aging myself there a bit, I suppose it would at least have to be a dollar store)
Anyhoo, I want to thank Jingle for passing out awards.
If you visit Jingle you can get 5 awards, I chose two.
To thank my readers I would love it if you grab these awards and put them on your blog.
May your days be filled with happiness.

You Make My Day and more:

I would like to thank my friend Amy for these awards.
Amy is one blogger who gets lots of awards and she deserves them.
I love the way she welcomes all new bloggers and friends to her blog.
Her daughter Alyce is just the most precious person.
Please visit Amy today and tell her Michelle sent you.

Then Sings My Soul Saturday

So far 2010 has been full of heartache and surprises.
First off my Dad and Mother-in law went to be with the LORD only days apart.
My 18 year old rarely talks to me anymore.
God has brought new friends into my life.
And I sit here writing I want you to know `Blessed Be The LORD`
Please join other bloggers as we praise the Lord today and every day!

Kitchen Tips

You ever wonder what it means when a recipe calls for zest?
To me it sounds like some kinda romantic appeal <3
Actually it is the colorful outer part of the skin, not the inner
white part, which is known as the pith. The zest contains all of the
aromatic citrus oils and provides a hint of citrus tang to the recipe.
To get a bit of the zest for your recipe swipe it one time on a cheese
grater and you'll have all you need.

I learned more about `zest` from Kit Singleton of `My Country Cooking`
I just love Kit's site! She has recipes, resources, tips and more.
Be sure and sign up for her newsletter when you visit.

Disclaimer: I was not compensated in any way from Kit Singleton. I am merely passing this information along.

I picked this award as it reminds me of Spring/Summer.
