You can make Soap in your Crockpot!

I was looking around over at "A year of Slow Cooking" and found this fantastic idea for gifts (and many good recipes I want to try soon, especially in the heat of summer who wants to turn the oven on?) could use all sorts of different things to put inside the soap shapes....stickers, little toys, plastic flowers, really your imagination could take you anywhere.  So, I thought I'd share, and if you give it a try let me know how it goes!  Oh, also if you go to Michaels or Joanns for supplies, be sure to check your local sunday paper for the store ad and see if they have coupons as that will lower your total out of pocket dramatically!

Happy Mom Day!!

In honor of my mother, I thought I'd share two cookie recipes that I grew up mom made them often, and every time I make them for my kids I think of her.

Here's the recipe link for Oatmeal Scotchies,

and here's one for the czechoslovakian bar cookies she used to make.

I hope Mother's day finds you well, and that you are surrounded by those you love!
