Honey Oat Bread

A few months ago, I shared with you my go to White Bread Recipe.   Occasionally, I like to mix things up a bit (no pun intended) and try different variations. 
 Here's one of my favorite variations. 
 Honey Oat Bread.  It's so tasty and yummy!  These loaves don't last long once I pull them out of the oven! 
Just a quick note:  When I make bread, I use my Bosch mixer.  If you want to make it by hand you will have to knead the bread and then let it rise in one big mound until doubled, punch it down and then put it in your loaf pans to rise the final time.  When using a Bosch mixer, it eliminates the need for the first rising.
  Honey Oat Bread
3 TBS Yeast
1 1/2 TBS Salt
8 Cups Flour
1 Cup Quick Oats (Dry Oatmeal)
3 Cups Hot Water (Not Boiling)
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Oil (I use Canola Oil)
  Add 1 3/4 cups of hot water and Oatmeal together and let sit.  Mix yeast, salt and 4 cups of flour together in mixing bowl.  Add the oatmeal mixture, remaining water and honey to mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Add rest of flour one cup at a time until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. 
 Continue to mix for 6 minutes.  
Divide dough into thirds.  Put in three bread loaf pans, cover and let rise for about one hour.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Butter tops of bread when done.  Let sit in the pan for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.  Enjoy!

Homemade DoTerra Bath Salts

I recently have been posting recipes that I used for our DoTerra Essential Oils party.  
Everyone loves FREE stuff... so at the end of the party I gave all of the guest some Homemade DoTerra Bath Salts.  
They were super easy to make and super cute!

I got this WONDERFUL Recipe and FREE Printables from The Idea Room.
For the jars, I just reused some baby food jars. (I knew I was saving those for a reason!)

These jars worked out perfect!  The guests loved them and they hardly cost me anything!

Another Quilting Project

A few months ago I won a fabric giveaway! 

I can't even tell you how excited I was when I received this package of eye candy!  I thought long and hard about what kind of quilt I should make this time. And the design I came up with is so fun!  I looked at so many different designs and incorporated many of them into one!

 I am almost done with the top of the quilt and I love it!

Stay tuned for the finished product...

Giveaway {Dermagist Skin Care}

We have an exciting giveaway to share with you today!  


Dermagist Skin Care offers skin care products that are amazing!  I can testify of this because they sent me the Complete Rejuvenation System to review.  When the package came in the mail, I was so excited to try it!  As many of you know, I just had my eighth child.  And the years have definitely been taking it's toll on my skin.  So I immediately got  started.  In the package, they send instructions on how to use their products.  There is a certain order on what to do and when.  And after following these instructions, I noticed a huge difference in my skin.  My dry skin was moisturized and my wrinkles were smoothed out.  I had a few discolorations on my face as well that lightened up as I used this system.  People began to comment on how young I look! 

I am a believer and had similar results as the picture below.  That is why I'm so excited Dermagist offered to give one of our readers the Complete Rejuvenation System or the Ultimate Clarifying System for acne prone skin.  This is huge and worth about $120!!!

see how the complete rejuvenation system from dermagist works

Rosie and her Blessing Dress

A month or so ago, I made Rosie a blessing dress.
I finally got around to editing the pictures.  And I love them!  Although, I am partial.  :)

She is such a happy baby!  We love everything about her!

She is so dainty and precious.  Just like a porcelain doll...

And we have to add a pouting picture.  :) 
Look at that little lip!

The dress fit her beautifully and I'm so glad!  The roses on the front of her dress and in her hair fit her name perfectly!  Our sweet little Rosie Grace!
