Yesterday was Easter. As I was growing up, my Granny always had a family get together on Easter and she would always make a yummy, delicious coconut cake that she would decorate to look like a bunny. Sadly, my Granny doesn't have those family get togethers anymore, but my sister was coming over with my nephew and we planned on playing games and having fun. I was craving that coconut cake so bad yesterday that I decided to make my own version and it turned out so good! Scroll down for the written recipe and instructions.

Hello! It's spring and Easter is coming up so stores have all kinds of Easter stuff out right now. I decided to take advantage of that fact and pick up some Easter Egg kits to dye some yarn! I have dyed yarn with Kool-Aid, with a Tie Dye kit, Wilton's food coloring, I've even experimented with dying yarn with plants but I've never dyed yarn with an Easter Egg dye kit, so I thought it would be a lot of fun to try! For the video tutorial and the written instructions, scroll down.

Magnesium Oil is wonderful to use and easy to make! I've been making plain magnesium oil for years and everyone in my family loves it, including my nephews. I have been using it for headaches, sore muscles, and to help with sleep. My son loves to dab some magnesium oil on his temples and his toes before bed. I also love to use it before bed to help with sleep and when I get headaches, migraines, and neck aches. I squirt some oil onto my fingers and rub it into my temples, forehead, neck, anywhere I am sore. Normally, within 20 minutes, I can feel a definite difference in the soreness of muscles or it can help a headache ease off enough to not turn into a horrible migraine.

Hello! Sean's birthday was last week but we were sick with colds so we celebrated his birthday last night. We had a small family birthday celebration and it was so nice and fun. I asked Sean what kind of cake he would like for me to bake this year and he asked for a Chocolate St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake. I had never heard of this kind of cake before so I looked for recipes online.
