Cranberry Salad Dressing
½ C Cider Vinegar
¼ C Apple Juice Concentrate
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground Mustard
1 tsp Grated Onion
1 C Vegetable Oil
If you don't have fresh cranberries, you can reconstitute dried cranberries in a little boiling water. The color isn't as nice, but the flavor is good. Or ... buy extra during the holiday season and freeze them to use next spring!

Corn or flour tortillas
Swiss or Monterey Jack cheese - grated
Slice of green pepper for garnish
Assemble enchiladas by placing about 1/3 to 1/2 cup filling in center of tortilla. If using corn tortillas, fry them briefly in vegetable oil to avoid tearing. Add grated cheese and roll tortilla. Place on oven safe dinner plate. Drizzle generous portion (about 1/3 cup) of green sauce over enchilada. Add a serving of refried beans to the plate and sprinkle with more cheese. Place in 350° oven until cheese is melted.
This recipe just might help you finish off that leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Visit my Food Friday Page for more ways to use Thanksgiving leftovers.

Recently, my Lavender Ruffle Pillow was featured in Redbook Magazine. That was a real thrill!! Follow me on Instagram and Facebook. Check out my little blog,www.bedheaddesigns.blogspot.com , where I share recipes, simple DIY projects, and my passion of helping our children become responsible, moral, patriotic citizens of our great country!
This is a nice saying, but it has been my experience that there really isn’t much success in the ‘following’ of dreams. It is more of a ‘chase them down and wrangle them into what I want them to be’ kind of scenario! Haha! Today, I will give you some tips to help you stay focused on making your dream come true.
Lastly, please remember that the end result will most likely be great from all the hard work you put into your dream. But, the journey getting to your goal is just as important. You learn so much from the struggle of making your dreams happen. Success shouldn’t be an end result. I think it should be the theme of your life, in general. You succeed when you stretch yourself and get out of your comfort zone and learn a little something (or a ton!) along the way. I know in my endeavors, I am learning all the time. Life is all about trying new things. It’s about getting messy and wondering if you are going to make it. It’s about the heartache and the lessons learned when you don’t. And it’s all about the joy and satisfaction of accomplishment, even if what you accomplished doesn’t look anything like what you originally set out to do. In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.

|Finishing up this layered sour cream lemon pie. Yum!|
3 Tbs flour
Dash of salt
1 ½ C water
3 egg yolks – slightly beaten
2 Tbs butter or margarine
1/3 C lemon juice
1 C sour cream
1 baked pastry shell
Combine sugar, cornstarch, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in water. Cook in medium saucepan over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat and cook two more minutes – stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir about one cup of hot mixture into beaten yolks. Combine this with mixture in saucepan and return to a gentle boil. Cook and stir for two more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Gradually stir in lemon juice. Divide filling and pour one half into pastry shell. Allow remaining filling to cool a bit. Then add the sour cream and beat until combined and smooth. Spread sour cream mixture over bottom layer of filling. Allow to cool and then chill in refrigerator prior to serving.
To make things easier still, a graham cracker crust can be used. If desired, do not separate the mixture. Add more sour cream for a completely creamy lemon pie dessert!

Donetta Loya was born and raised in Arizona. She moved to Parma, Idaho eleven years ago with her family. She is a wife of 31 years, a mother
children and a grandmother of 8.
Donetta attended Eastern
Arizona College. She has been a home-schooling mom for 17 years, a piano and voice teacher for 28 years. Her
most recent accomplishment is fulfilling her childhood dream of
becoming an author. Her first book was published May 2013. Since then she has
published 10 different books—3 fiction novels and 2 novellas, a woman’s inspirational, 2 journals, an
organizer and a children’s cookbook with her 12 year old daughter, Gretchen.
Donetta also loves to read,
garden, sew, and watch classic movies.
Where to start?
I recently added a section to my blog called “A Happy Homemaker.” I love being a wife and mother! I have been lucky enough to be a stay-home mom for many years. I thought of my homeschooling experiences, my years of teaching music. I thought of my recent bout with cancer that lead to my leap into becoming an author. I thought of my spiritual experiences and the blessing my life has been filled with over the past few years. I thought of how great it is to just be alive!
