The Secret The Power


 Happy New year everyone!!! This year is going to be the reatest year ever. I received a book this Christmas that is going to change my life and how I view things. The book is called The Power it is a continuation of the Secret. If you have never seen The Secret now is the time to watch it. Netflix is streaming it right now.  I have to admit the teachings of the Secret seems too good to be true but believe me when I say it works. It has made me aware of my thought process and how negative my my thoughts have been up til now. Just being aware of your thoughts is a life changing experience.
Here is some information on the book. I can't wait to share my thoughts with everyone. Just switching the way you feel can change your life. (AMAZING)

Rhonda Byrne follows up her international bestseller, The Secret, by taking the power of positive thinking beyond the Law of Attraction in her latest book, The Power. Whether you are looking for a little nudge to help you seize the moment, follow your passion, or lead a more joyful life, Rhonda encourages us to take control of our feelings and frequency so that we can become the architects of our lives.

If you are looking to reset your feelings and energy level, The Power will help you do just that.
One of my favorites quotes from the book.

1. "Life is supposed to be fun! When you're having fun, you feel great and you receive great things! Having fun brings the life you want, and taking things too seriously brings a life you have to take seriously."

Free Chalkboard Printable The Journey

Good morning everyone I have been busy the past few weeks coming up with a new business adventure. One of my grandsons loves ice cream but has a problem with dairy. After a little research I found out that not many ice creams are free of dairy. I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a special little ice pop just for him. Well needless to say I came up with so many ideas and they were so delicious that I decided to open a business. Gourmet Glace


The name says it all Gourmet Glace
Gourmet: finest quality food
Glace: is French for ice or ice cream. /glas/
Opening a specialty restaurant can be expensive and adventurous. Join us in the experience and help us become successful. (This is going to be one big adventure).
Gourmet popsicles are making their way as the newest food rage. You can see evidence of that in just about every magazine you pick up, on food shows on television and of course all over the internet. They are fun, creative, and in most cases, a healthy option to some of the overly sweetened, processed frozen treats that have been making the scene for years. We are still working out the details but I am having fun getting started. We ordered the Progressive International PLP-1 Freezer Pop Maker from Amazon. But for now are using ice cube trays. I am so excited and would love for everyone to help us get started by following our journey any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Free Digital Cupcake Wrappers & Lemonade Cupcake Recipe


Good morning everyone! Today is a sample of what the summer will bring. Free Digital Pink Lemonade Cupcake Holders. Why summer you may ask. Well, I had my granddaughters Birthday Party, she is turning 15 on the 29th of January but we had it early for convenience. It turned out great. She requested Lemonade Cupcakes. Now I know this is more of a summer time theme but that is what she wanted so that is what I did. Here are two recipes for you to try. Of course I was on a time crunch (as always) so I used the easy one. Scroll beyond the cupcake wrappers and check them out.

Since it is still the middle of winter I didn't use these but created them for a summertime party. Click on cupcake photo to bring up a larger jpeg file. Right click on photo and save it to your computer. Print on your own printer, one page makes enough for two cupcakes. Cut out and wrap around cupcake. Glue the two matching banners together with a toothpick in the middle.



Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Made from Cake mix
1 box white cake mix
3/4 cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 egg whites
Pink food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 24 muffins tins with liners
Combine all of the ingredients in an electric mixer and begin by mixing low for 30 seconds, then increase the speed to medium for another minute.
Divide the batter evenly, filling the liners about 2/3 full
Bake cupcakes for about 25 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean
Allow cupcakes to cool before frosting
Yield: Makes 24 cupcakes

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes
Made from Scratch

Ingredients:

Cake:
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
4 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
lemon zest from two lemons
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure lemon extract
Pink food coloring
Yield: Makes 24 cupcakes
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cupcake tins by using liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg whites.
Put the sugar and lemon zest in the bowl of a stand mixer or another large bowl and rub them together with your fingers until the sugar is moist and fragrant. Add the butter and, working with the paddle or whisk attachment, or with a hand mixer, beat at medium speed for a full 3 minutes, until the butter and sugar are very light. Add the extracts and beat until combined. Add one third of the flour mixture, still beating on medium speed, then half of the milk-egg mixture. Repeat, ending by adding the final third of the flour mixture. Beat on medium for two minutes to ensure that the batter is thoroughly mixed and well aerated. Divde the batter evenly among the cupcake tins. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the cupcakes are are springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then continue cooling on wire rack.

Lemonade Buttercream Frosting 

3 cups confectioners sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (room temperature)
2 tbsp frozen pink lemonade concentrate
Pink food coloring
Pinch of salt
 

 
Needless to say they were a big hit.

Free Digital Fall Album Template

YEA!!! MORE Free Digital Scrapbooking Album Templates. Well, I was right, fall is in the air, it went from the mid 80's down to the upper 60's to lower 70's. It was so cold the other day we had a fire going in the house. As I was going through my photos to pick the right ones for the templates I noticed I didn't have many fall photos. I have a ton of Halloween and Thanksgiving photos but nothing that is just fall. This is all going to change this year, I am on a mission to take pictures of the trees changing color and of the mountain scenery of course with my kids in the foreground. Anyway here are 4 album templates sized 12" X 12"The will go better with fall photos maybe more serious photos.
