New Shop Items and a Recipe

Here are some new items I just added to my etsy shop today.

Some MUST needed Key Fobs!!!
This is one of my Favs.. I love this gray with this lace on it!
I have been so busy working on things for The Madeira Art Show coming up the first Sunday in May.. I have more great vintage items getting ready to be listed tonight as if you are looking for vintage.. then stop back by the shop.
I wanted to share with you this recipe I made up.. It does require some time.. so it is not a super quick dinner, but one that is super YUMMY!
I have NO name for it.. besides the meal my husband begs me for each week!
You want to start with some salt, pepper, garlic salt, olive oil, or extra virgin olive oil, and some minced garlic.
In your frying pan, add some olive oil.. I start pouring and count to like 5.. I know that is sad, but that is how I do it.  Then once that is nice and hot, add your minced garlic 2 table spoons, salt, pepper, a sprinkle of garlic salt,  and also an onion cut up.  Let those cook till you can see through the onions and then add the following
 I do a red and green pepper.. I dice those up to small pieces and then add those to the skillet as well.. You can also add more seasoning at this time, if you want.  (like my hollow onion? I forgot to get it in the picture.. so this is what I had left :)
Once you have cooked your peppers, onions and such for about 15 minutes you can add your chicken.. this photo is of chicken I had my husband grill on Sunday and I am using on Monday.. You can also use frozen chicken strips, or diced chicken.. take it from the freezer and just toss it in.
  I coat it all very well and again maybe add a little  more spices.. I cook this for about 20 minutes on med to low.
This is how it looks in the pan.  I will get to the sauce you see, right now..
In a sauce pan you will want to cooking while you other stuff is cooking the following items.. Chicken Broth, Heavy Whipping Cream and Butter.. yes I said butter!
I use a 1/2 stick of butter let it melt.. I then add 1 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream and 3/4 cup of Chicken Broth.  I let this cook on high till it starts to thicken a little.. then I turn it down.. Normally like 15 minutes.  I then take about 3/4 of a cup of this and add it to the skillet and I do not drain anything.. I let that all simmer on med to low for about 15 minutes. 
I then make up some  noodles and we serve this over noodles.. And I add a little more of the sauce over the whole thing once I have it on my plate.. It is very yummy and I know it takes a while to cook, but it is SOOOOO good!
Email me if you have any questions..
I also wanted to share with you our nightly back yard guest.. and the little girl who loves to watch for them, who will stand for an hour watching them..and her little big dog, who waits at her feet.. because he likes to chase them away!
I never get to have any fun!


  1. Wow! You have been a busy girl adding so many items to your Etsy store. I especially loved the little clutch type purse.
    I remember when we lived in the mountains how excited the boys would get to see a deer on our property.

  2. Opps forgot to say how yummy your chicken recipe looks. Will have to try that.

  3. There are all kinds of interesting things in this post! Your shop things are gorgeous!
    Love everything!

  4. WOW! you have been a busy bee.

    I use a similar recipe for spaghetti...but I can't wait to change it up and use the sauce you use.

    The shots with Carly? and her dog are so sweet and tender...thanks for sharing that moment with us.

    Love and Kisses
