It's time for a new game and give away.

I really enjoy adding a game to my give a ways. So far I have done a Christmas quiz  and Bingo game. This time I am going to try a hidden object game using my own house as the back drop. Each day I will show a new room and a list of objects to find. Each right answer will give you one more chance to win. There will also be a riddle you have to solve , for one of the objects you need to find If there is a tie ,there will be a drawing.   Two days after the room is posted, it will be closed . This will give you a second chance at the room if you miss a day. Every two days I will add another room.  There will be 4 rooms total. Once the room is closed any answers posted will not be counted. All you need to do is E-mail me your answers for each room.  If you are interested in playing please leave a comment in the comment box below. All are welcomed to play. I will be starting the game on  Wednesday morning. I will send out a reminder on Tue of the starting date to all that  wish to play.
First room, wed and Thru
Second room, Fri and Sat
Third room, Mon and Tue
Four room, Wed and Thru
Winner will be announced Fri

Faith's homemade rolls

These are so good. Mine were gone before I thought to get a picture so this picture is from Faith's own original post. Because of the cold weather we been having I let these raise in my oven with a pan of boiled water like I do for my bread. They rose so nicely.
1 1/2 cups warm water   (110 to 115 degrees )
1 tbs yeast
3 tbs oil
2tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 cup flour ( t - ) a lot depends on weather or altitude. If sticky add a little flour, if real dry add a little water.

Into a large mixing bowl, goes the water,yeast,sugar and a cup of flour. Cover for about 1/2 an hour it should be really frothy and bubbly.
Then add the salt to the reaming flour stir together then add to your frothy mixture. Let rise for about an hour or till doubled.
Pinch off a bit and roll into a ball. Place in a circle on your cookie sheet. Let rise till double. Bake at 350 ( 20 to 25 minute ). For the shine, brush with egg whites before baking.

Halloween decor canning jars

 I love the way these turned out. We usually don't do Halloween but I loved the black cat and had to find a way to use  it.
 The gel clings were on sale so it made this project less then 3 dollars. Right up my alley. I used canning jars that were to  old to use for canning an longer. But you can use any glass container you wish.
 These are so simple, just stick the gels on the outside of the jars and add a fake tea light. My picture don't do them justice. I tried but couldn't get rid of the glare cause by my camera when I took these pictures. They are really pretty at night. They admit a soft glow thru the gels.
I found some gel leaves for Thanksgiving. At Christmas I plan to use these in my kitchen window with holly all over them. But I will probably add pine scented candles instead of the tea lights. Snowmen would look cute too. These are also a great project for kids. NO MESS.

Super easy carmel sauce

Wow I got this from a friends post, I did not know this!!!!

"Been doing this for years! My mother taught it to me! Unopened can of sweetened condensed milk + 8 hours on low (completely submerged in water) in the crock pot + cool down in the fridge = Caramel! This is the best caramel I've ever had, let alone made! It's so easy! Need to try this! — 3 hours on the stovetop!"
