Homemade Bread

This bread is great. Unlike store bought bread; it actually has flavor. In other words, it's not just there to hold your sandwich together. You'll actually like it; and it will bring flavor to your sandwich. Now that I have a Bread Maker; I make my bread in it...and as of now...I have said I will never again buy bread from the store. Now...if you promise to ignore the "seasoned" pizza stone under the bread...I'll give you recipe...hehehe

Basic White Bread

Water- 1 1/2 cup + 1 tsp.
Oil- 2 Tbsp.
Salt- 2 tsp.
Sugar- 3 Tbsp.
Dried Milk Powder- 2 Tbsp.
Flour- 4 1/2 cups
Active dry Yeast- 2 tsp.

Place the ingredients into your bread pan in the order they are listed. Put the pan in your Bread Maker and follow the instructions on your model for Basic White Bread.

* Wait thirty minutes before slicing your bread. (You'll be glad you did.) I slice my bread long ways, down the middle. Then, I slice it as you would normally slice bread.

The 2010 Ultimate Blog Party Continues

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Yesterday I told you about the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party over at 5 MinutesforMom. Today I want to tell you about how I'm celebrating; and about some of the really great prizes their giving away at the party. First of all, I really like to bake. So,I was inspired by some of the cakes from the previous years that Janice and Susan showed off. Get this, they actually have "Ultimate Blog Party" written on them in icing. So, I am going to attempt something similar. I know it sounds silly, but why not? I will post pictures of it when it's all said and done. I got another way to celebrate from my Daddy several days ago. You see, I was sick and he told me to take the day off. He mentioned that it wouldn't hurt anything, and I could call it my own personal Spring Break. Well, I explained to him that Mommy Spring Break could only last a day. Then, as I was making my bed; it dawned on me; Mommy only gets a Spring Break when she's sick. So, after some quick thinking I decided that I am going to use the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 as an excuse for one more day of Mommy Spring Break. You see, I am no longer sick, and this will be much more fun. No, the house isn't clean, and there is laundry to be done...but it is The Ultimate Blog Party 2010! I promise to not take the entire April 9-16th off...but it is tempting!

Okay...onto those great prizes...it's so hard to narrow down my choices for the prizes. In order to believe how many giveaways there are...you would have to read the list yourself..but I managed to narrow down a few choices of my own...

(1)- Grand Prize-Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025...Who wouldn't want this prize? It would be great for me to take homechool on the go!

(2)- USC #15- $50.00 Target Gift card...I could really use this with some coupons.

(3)- #32- Target Gift Card...need I say more?

(4)- #107- Target Gift card...I'm not very predictable am I?

(5)-#104- $50.00 Visa Vanilla Gift Card... Wow!

(6)-#100- $25 Wachovia Gift Card... This could go far with some coupons.

(7)- #47- Muffintop mama attire...here's me some gym clothes...Yeah!

(8)- #83- Disney Mickey 5 in 1 Tasty..a gift for my Mama, aka Mickey fanatic!

(9)- #57- Yoga gift set...more gym stuff...Yeah!

Now...I have to mention that, although I couldn't decide between all the beautiful jewelry being offered over there, that I would absolutely adore any of that...In fact, I've already pictured myself wearing any of it to church. I would also like to say that I would be grateful for any prize not mentioned on my list.

Thank y'all for visiting my blog and have fun at the party!

The 2010 Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Oh wow! I just found out about this through Crystal at Making it... Home and her link to 5 minutes for Mom. I've heard so many good things about this. It couldn't have come at a better time for me. Come on out to the Ultimate Blog Party 2010!

Income-Earning Ideas

Search & Win

First of all, I use Swagbucks. If you're unfamiliar with Swagbucks; it's really simple. It's basically a search engine that allows you to earn points by doing online searches. You redeem your points for really great gift cards and prizes.
You just search the Internet as you normally would,(using Google,etc.)You just search through Swagbucks instead.If you sign up today, you'll earn free points!

As far as taking surveys, I really like OpinionOutpost. They pay you in points for every completed survey.You redeem your points for Instant Win games, Sweepstakes, or cash. It's easy to get to their pay-out limit. 50 points is worth a $5.00 Amazon giftcard, or a $5.00 check. You don't have to cash in right away either. I like to save up the money for a bigger pay-out. There's also a sign-up bonus!

The last one I want to tell you about today is InboxDollars. This one is really simple! You get paid money to read e-mails. No joke! It's that simple! Will you get rich? No! Will you make money? Yes! It doesn't take much. There are also survey opportunities. One of my favorite things about this site is that you make money for shopping through them also. If you're going to shop online, check to see if you can make money through them first. They go through so many stores, (Office Max,KMart,1-800-PetMeds,etc.) Check it out...Yes! There's a sign-up bonus!
