Yummy Strawberry Sauce

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Strawberry season is near so if you have a hankering for cheesecake, try topping it with a yummy Strawberry Sauce infused with Grand Marnier liqueur using a recipe I found on Recipe Source.


1/2 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Cornstarch
1 cup Orange juice
1/4 cup Grand Marnier liqueur
6 cups Sliced hulled strawberries

In a 2 to 3 quart saucepan, stir  the sugar, cornstarch, orange juice and  liqueur until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring until clear and thickened. Stir in the sliced strawberries until well combined. Let cool and serve over vanilla ice cream.

The napkins  shown in the photograph are from the Elise Line of paper tabletop for Creative Converting, in my Tea Roses pattern.

Downloadable Bookplates for an Organized Life

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

The birds are chirping and the sun is shining and unfortunately ’tis the time for Spring cleaning. I thought I’d design these fun and colorful bookplates to help inspire me to organize my books which are in major disarray and have gotten a little out of hand on my bookshelf. Download them for yourself too. They’re also a great way to make sure you get your books back from your friends when you lend them out.
