I’m always looking for great recipes, projects and craft ideas. It’s so much fun hopping from link to link.
Since I’m really busy at the moment and have so many links on my sidebar already, I thought I’d post a new link every week for you to enjoy.
Hop on over and check out The Farm Chick’s Journal. There’s lots of great recipes and crafty ideas for you to enjoy through the cold winter.
Gravy, gravy, gravy!
Here in the South, Chocolate Gravy is served at breakfast over “cat-head” biscuits, as my dear Dad calls them. My own daughters used to gag at the idea of gravy being sweet, until they grew up a little and learned just how delicious chocolage gravy poured over a warm biscuit and topped with a pat of butter can be.
It’s not something I make on a regular basis, but for a special breakfast treat.
Speaking of Dad, his specialty was always Tomato Gravy, a savory gravy made with bacon drippings and flour, with chopped fresh tomato pieces added. Yum, yum! I must make some soon.
My friend Jada shares her family’s secret recipe for Chocolate Gravy.
2 cups sugar
3 TBS cocoa
3 heaping TBS flour
add 3-4cups HOT water
Mix sugar, flour, and cocoa with whisk first, then add your water. Mix well. Cook on med heat until it boils.
Jada’s notes: Add more water if it gets too thick. Some like it thick, some don’t. I let mine sit and cool about 5 min before serving so its not like lava–lol–ENJOY! I’ve just let y’all in on a BIG family recipe
I regret to say that I don’t work Weight Watchers very well.
I was doing good at first, then Thanksgiving happened and a few days later I quit counting my points.
Weight Watchers is hard to do if you don’t count your points, or at least it is for me.
So I’m back to what I know will get rid of those puffy eyes, hands, and feet. Low Carb it is!
While trying to decide what to have for lunch today, I came across some great low carb articles/sites.
I’ve decided to list a few here. Enjoy… and happy Low Carbing!

Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 cup marshmallow creme
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or chunky
1 teaspoon vanilla
Boil sugar and milk in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally, to soft ball stage*, or about 236° on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Beat well with a wooden spoon until the fudge begins to turn glossy.
Pour candy into a greased 8×8-inch pan. Cut peanut butter fudge into squares when firm. Enjoy!
*To Test for Soft Ball Stage
A small amount of syrup dropped into chilled water forms a ball, but is soft enough to flatten when picked up with fingers (234° to 240°).
