Turkey Day Around the Corner


Cleaning, slicing, dicing, stuffing, baking, washing, mixing, cooking.. all for one large, expansive meal of Thanksgiving!



But not everyone has family recipes to fall back on during the holiday season, so where do you turn? Lost Aunt Sadie's sweet potato pie recipe? Browsing through hundreds of cookbooks for just the right recipe may take hours or days without results.

Turn to the ultimate resource for recipes.. the web.  There are thousands of websites dedicated to recipes, but my preference is a website that has feedback from other users, the option to print without ads and a decent search to locate the perfect recipe. 

My all time favorite is Allrecipes.com/ because it has all of the features I prefer with a great many people willing to login and rate the recipes.  Put in the ingredient in the search engine, sort by title, rating or popularity and you have a fantastic recipe database at your finger tips.

Didn't find Aunt Sadie's recipe? Well Google makes searching for recipes easy.

On the left hand side, there is a link to select only recipes. The search can be narrowed down even more by cooking time, and even calories.

Taste of Home is one my favorite magazines and you can often find deals online to subscribe.. but they also have recipes online.  Like Allrecipes.com, they  have a great search and you can easily narrow it down to the type of recipe, such as cooking for two or healthy or just plain comfort food.

I would love to hear some of your favorites. Comment below and share with other readers. Followers are growing daily and I feel so blessed.    Wishing each and every one of you a safe and love-filled Thanksgiving!

"Hello, This is Bridget (Or Rachel) from Card Holder Services"

When it comes to running a business, the last thing you need is to be inundated with junk phone calls and the number one pest is "Card Holder Services". Matter of fact, the FTC considers "Bridget from Card Holder Services" to be Enemy #1 . Well, the FTC may not have solved this ongoing problem but I have found help from the customer reviews at Amazon.com. I searched online, then narrowed it down to a couple of options. I was very excited when I found the CPR Call Blocker capable of blocking 1200  (yes, 1200) numbers. Robocallers can change their number and I still can block them!  I reduced the robocallers to my business line within a couple of days of adding this device. CPR Call Blocker V108 - 1200 Number Capacity - World #1 - Block Telemarketing Calls Now! (Amazon.com Affiliate Link but personal review without any payment. Just passing on a great tip!) The setup took about 15 minutes for me (some said it only took a couple of minutes in the reviews). The ins

Things you DON'T want on your website

Now, this admission will reveal my age.  I have been a part of designing websites through ~every single aspect~ shown on this infographic chart from Who Is Hosting This . Click here to view the infographic. You may need to click again on the image to make it large enough to read. From gradients to web counters, I have done them all. Take my advice and do not ask me to add these things to your website unless you are wanting a "retro" look. Except maybe drop shadows, I like drop shadows. They may have their place depending on the design.☺

Washable Computer Keyboards

There is almost always a cup of coffee on my desk. Yes, ALWAYS.  But there is a risk. Once a keyboard is wet, it is a gonner.. toast, terminated. When my daughter was much younger, in elementary school, she was home after school and wanted to help clean house so she took my proprietary keyboard from my Amstrad 8086 Dual Floppy computer (now a museum piece). and washed it.  As in, put it in a sink of soapy dish water and washed it.  It was very expensive to replace the micro-controller for that keyboard let me tell you! Well, it isn't really new but there are some washable keyboards on the market now.  Logitech has a the scrubbable, submersible, spill-proof, K310 Keyboard that has pretty good reviews.  Kensington K64407US Pro also has a washable keyboard with anti-microbial protection for a little bit less money.  There are also washable mice but those are usually covered in silicone which I personally would prefer to not hold onto throughout the day. I did find the Seal Sh
