AUTHOR PROCEEDS BENEFIT 

THURSDAY'S HEROES CHARITY!


Review:
I love cookbooks! Especially ones that are giving back to charities. 
I picked a quick and easy recipe, as I was pressed for time one night and not sure what to make. This seemed like a great side dish, and as usual, I was right.
Creamed Potatoes and Peas
I had everything in the house so it was no problem to make. It helped that it wasn't going to require a lot of effort or time on my part. I was starving at this point and am sure the rest of the family was too.
It was delicious too!
I know you're thinking it looks like mashed potatoes with peas, but let me tell you how wrong that assumption is. These potatoes have texture because cornstarch is used.
Oh, what a clever way to feed the family. 
I can't wait to try the Jalapeno Crescent Rolls next!
Be sure to get a copy for yourself, as the author's proceeds go back to charity. 


5/5

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
