Today it is icy and snowy outside and I plan to make some mug rugs. A mug rug is a little larger than a coaster and can be used for mugs, snacks, a spoon, or even plants. I have seen so many cute ones and have found one with a tutorial. My plan is to start with that one and then work my way onto making others.

Two-Ingredient Lemon Bars

FYI – I did try this recipe and it was so delicious! And it was easy!. You have to try it!
———————————————————————————————————
This simple, two-ingredient lemon bar is a nostalgic recipe for me. A friends mother had made these lemon bars for a birthday party, and my mom asked for the recipe. I remember my mom telling me that it was easy enough for me to make – it was one of the first recipes I remember making mostly on my own. As a result, every time I make these bars, I recall every detail of the birthday party from the games we played and the weather to the park where it was held.

While I don’t expect, you to get all nostalgic putting together this easy recipe, it is one of the easiest bar recipes I have ever found. All you need it an angel food cake mix and a can of lemon pie filling.

Mix them together and bake in a 9×13 cake pan at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. As they are cooling, you can sprinkle with powder sugar if you wish (Which I guess technically makes this a 3-ingredient recipe).

Hi! My ancestors came from Poland and I have taken the time to make cabbage rolls by rolling them up and keeping them together with toothpicks. Then you have to worry about someone eating a toothpick or the roll falls apart. 


Then I saw this casserole that looks so easy and has the same ingredients but you don’t have to roll them or use toothpicks.
Here is the recipe: 

You need:
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion,diced
4 cloves garlic,minced
1 tsp dried basil
1- 14.5 oz can beef broth
1- 15 oz can tomato sauce
1- 11.5 oz can tomato juice
1 medium sized cabbage, chopped
1 1/2 c. instant brown rice
 salt and pepper

Directions:
In a large saucepan cook ground beef, onion, garlic, basil, salt and pepper until beef is cooked through. Add broth, tomato sauce and tomato juice and remove from heat. Meanwhile chop cabbage. In a 9×13 pan add cabbage and rice. Pour ground beef mixture over rice and cabbage, stir to combine. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour, stirring a couple times throughout baking.

 These are placemats that have been made with chalkboard fabric. It even has a little pouch where chalk can be placed. These will keep little ones busy at the table while waiting for their food. I made these from a free pattern from Bernina.
