Green Tea Vs Coffee


  I have been trying something new. I am hopelessly addicted to coffee but I have been trying to cut down, as I have a very sensitive system. Thank goodness for green tea!

Colourful Pancakes Just Taste Better.


The new Club House Neon food coloring is really impressive. We have used it in spray bottles to colour snow or the steps outside. We have used it to colour the bath water or the bubbles in the bath. My sister thought of this one. Coloured pancakes with designs. The one that worked out the best was the heart pancake!…
