It's that time of year.....zucchini season! I have found a lot zucchini recipes that I want to try. It's getting close to fall (and our first frost). Fall and winter are my favorite time to cook and bake. Not to say I don't cook and bake during summer, but I hate to heat the house up and do my baking in the bbq.

Some of the gals over at Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund Project (JCCF) and I decided we should run a little contest to increase our members in this fun little group. We knit and crochet 12-inch blocks that we send to Wendy. She take the blocks and turns them into (fabulous) blankets that are donated to injured rodeo cowboys and cowgirls to give them some comfort during their healing process.

In case you're not a food label reader, you may not realize that a lot of processed foods have added sugar. When I started the no flour no sugar diet, I had read that there were LOTS of products that have added sugar.

In case you don't follow The Prairie Homestead (and really, if you don't, you should), you might have missed her post on Homemade Stevia Extract. My immediate response was "AWESOME"! Even though I hadn't grown stevia this year, (and think I will in the future) we had a few plants left in the nursery that I bought up to try this out.

Lately, I've been reading about knitters who are intimidated by short rows. Well, if you happen to be one of those knitters, I've found the pattern for you. Let me introduce The Almost Lost Washcloth by Julie Tarsha (LOVE her patterns!). It's the perfect way to practice short rows. I mean, who doesn't need a few more washcloths?

It's my Birthday AND National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day! To celebrate, I thought I'd bake up a few chocolate chip cookies. I've been sticking to my no flour no sugar diet really well. Okay, unless you count my birthday dinners out with friends. I did eat salads, but I sort of fell down on the wine and dessert portions of the meal. But, otherwise, I've been sticking to the diet pretty good.
