Heavenly Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Heavenly Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting - Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningThis is absolutely the best pumpkin bar ever and I make it often. You know Fall is in the air and people are converting to Fall mode when I start getting requests for these bars! Just made them last week upon a request by co-workers of my daughter. They scratched off her item on the food list and wrote in "only your Mom's pumpkin bars" allowed.

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings

Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings - Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningThese bacon wrapped onion rings are unbelievably delicious. In fact, they are so delicious that they never made it to the buffet table - everyone was picking them right off the smoker! They make a great appetizer but would also be a delicious topping a burger.

Easy & Delicious Strawberry Freezer Jam

Easy & Delicious Strawberry Freezer Jam - Easy Life Meal & Party Planning There can be great enjoyment from making jams and jellies. It brings about a feeling of accomplishment. Usually you prepare food and it is immediately consumed but with preserving, you have a beautiful product that lasts for many months. You can be creative with jams and jellies through combining fruits for unique flavors, packaging the product and gifting. Making freezer jam is extremely quick and easy and I actually like strawberry jam freezer style better than cooked.

Chicken Fajita Pepper Bombs

Chicken Fajita Pepper Bombs by Easy Life InspirationsThese Chicken Fajita Pepper Bombs are well ..... the bomb! They are super tasty and easy to make. Plus they are a nice spicy change from the traditional stuffed beef and Spanish rice peppers.

The small filled red peppers were really showy and would make a great fall football game day snack.

My daughter made these stuffed peppers awhile ago and she went on and on about how wonderful they were so I thought I would give it a try. Her recipe was crock pot based which only works if you are the plan ahead kind of person! So, I made up my own recipe with the intent of not making too much work for myself.

Exotic DIY Miniature Plant Terrarium

Exotic DIY Miniature Plant Terrarium
Back in the day Terrariums used to be popular and my sister and I made plenty of them. They were fun and we loved going to the 5 & Dime store to pick out little animal porcelain figurines for the terrarium (that's correct they weren't plastic or cheap looking).

The Making of American Flag Pallets - DIY How to Make the American Flag Using Wood Pallets

A tutorial on how to make four styles of American Flag Using Wood Pallets by Easy Life InspirationsA tutorial on how to make four styles of the American Flag Using Wood Pallets.

This summer I set out to make an American Flag out of wood pallets. One turned into four after friends and family saw the first one.

My first charge was to find pallet boards that were in really good shape. I am lucky because my husband has a lot of them at work so he is able to bring home the ones that are in the best condition and have the best wood.

This cinnamon strudel zucchini bread is a truly fabulous recipe and worth every moment it takes to make it! 

There is nothing better than making quick bread with fresh zucchini straight out of your garden. And if you are a gardener or farmer's market shopper you will want to hope for lots of zucchini to freeze and enjoy making this bread during the winter months.
