Headband Box JOLLY MOOD Waitlist

We are Jolly!

keep-the-holiday-spirit-alive._dvd.original 

I’m so excited to be sharing and creating! You friends have been inspiring us to create a headtastic experience to be shared this season! And you literally sold us out last time!

SALEs WILL HAPPEN IN THE SHOP TAB!

I’m a self-declared headband bandit by default. My beautiful baby daughter is the one who inspired me to attempt to make her a monkey headband.  I love a good challenge. Wore a good one to the store and the store clerk was so impressed to know where did I buy it at? An idea sparked and has blessfully grown into these beautiful headbands!

I have been gathering all the good stuff, handcrafting and designing each individual headband with the same love that was put into it for my daughter when she first asked for her monkey headband! There will be no monkeys this time but plenty of fun color, glitz, and glitter all flipped into one!

Be a VIP to be notified ahead of time! We sold out super fast last time! 

<—Click Here to get on our JOLLY MOOD Waitlist!

I wear the headbands and people will ask where I purchased them from. What a hooting story those are!  My daughter’s friends will purchase them from her. My husband has sold some right from the top of our heads.

I have sold thousands to girls little leagues! Now that one tickles me and what a blessing!

And… it’s all 100% handmade.  I have destroyed a few good manicures I’ll say.

I am obsessed with colors, materials, glitz, & bling and making heads prettier and sparkle!  Did someone say GLITTER!

For a limited time only!

Sensational Salmon Patties

Sensational Salmon Patties Sunday Dinner 90119

You’re invited to our home for Sunday Dinner!  This week it’s a Sensational Salmon Dinner.  Last week was a honey glazed salmon & if you have left overs, use those for this recipe in place of the canned salmon.  Yes, I said canned! Ewww!  But not so! My Momma wouln’t feed us junk. Only love food. Let’s begin!


Step 1: Gather Ingredients: 1 can salmon 15 ounces or fresh (if fresh or my left over salmon make sure to add about 1/2 cup of oil. If not, you can leave out but it won’t have that same moisture as the can will.)

1 tbsp. Salt Free Lemon Pepper

4 to 5 medium size potatoes peeled.  I used a mix of red and yellow.

2 eggs

Canola oil to coat pan about 1/2 inch of oil as you go along cooking these beautiful tasty sensational salmon patties.

Step 2: Pour in the salmon and de-bone. Take out all the big spine parts and take out as much of the smaller bones.  The really small translucent bones are ok to leave in.  They will break up because they are soft. Peel your potato and mash with  a smasher masher in a mixing bowl with the salmon to the consistency you like.  I like ours to be well blended. Then add a the lemon pepper and mix well. Next add 1 egg to begin with.  This recipe will call for 2.  If too mushy then add 1 more small potato or half of medium.

Step 3: Mix, mash, and form into patties.

Step 4: Preheat cast iron pan on medium heat with oil and begin to cook each side until a crisp crust forms around edges and flip and cook until done. You can add additional lemon pepper while they are cooking (which I always do as they are cooking.)

Serve with any flavor rice, noodles, or veggies! It’s also an excellent appetizer!

Bon Appetit! From my kitchen to your table!

XOXO

Honey Glazed Salmon

Welcome Y’all!  You’re invited to our Sunday Dinner!  It’s Honey Glazed Salmon.  I think I have a theme this month? What do you think?  As usual you’re invited over for Sunday Dinner with the Kelrez’s, chat, gather around our dining table, and some coffee afterwards!  Let’s begin!

082519 Honey Glazed Salmon.png


Let’s gather a few items:

1 cup honey

1 stick butter

1 lemon (sliced)

1 tbsp garlic minced (or 2 large garlic cloves minced)

1 to 2 tbsp Adams Reserve Citrus Seafood or any citrus seafood seasoning you prefer.

1 large salmon fillet (This was probably about 2 1/2 pounds)

Some mixing bowls

Heavy Duty Foil

Baking sheet pan

082519 Honey Glazed Salmon (2)

Step 2: Melt honey and butter together in pan or microwave in a bowl. Mix

Step 3: Place salmon on top of foil.  Enough foil to cover all the bottom and around to close up. Mix in the garlic into the honey/butter glaze and pour over the entire salmon fillet

Step 4: Place lemon wedges on top and sprinkle in seafood seasoning.


Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes depending on oven temperature.  It must have turned colors of pink to a brownish tan. The edges will have browned first then you can uncover for the remaining cook time. If it’s flaking and you can see the salmon pulling apart, it is done.

Bon Appetit! From my kitchen to your table!

Baked Fish Sticks

You’re invited to our Sunday Dinner!  And do I have a new and family approved!  Baked Fish Sticks!  It’s so light and no frying is the best part! Yummy!

Baked Fish Sticks 081819 Sunday Dinners


Ingredients:

1 1/2 pound of Alaskan Cod Fish cut into 1 to 2 inches

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon salt and pepper

1 bag of panko crust lemon pepper

1/4 tbsp of melted butter

A drizzle of olive oil

1 tbsp of fresh parsley or parsley flakes (I used the flakes because I forgot to get the fresh while shopping!)

1/2 or 1/3 cup of parmesan grated cheese (I used less because I didn’t want the cheese to over power the cod but to give it a slight tang to it.)

Canola spray for the baking pan


Let’s begin with cutting/slicing the cod pieces. Set aside.

Bowl 1 – Mix the flour, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Set aside.

Bowl 2 – Crack the eggs and mix.

Bowl 3 – In the 3rd bowl mix the panko crust, parsley, butter, and oil. Mix thoroughly. Then add the parmesan. Mix. Set aside.

Begin with bowl 1. Follow video.

Bake at 415 degree oven for 12 minutes. Flip the sticks and cook another 5 to 7 minutes.

Plentiful Pesto Dinner Options

You’re invited to our Sunday Dinner! You are always invited and welcome to our home to have some good eats, chat, and coffee afterwards! Today it’s all about continuing and ending the pesto theme with some plentiful pesto dinner options.

Pesto Dinner Options EK Sunday Dinners

The grilled shrimp dish I simply poured a few spoon fulls of the Basil Pesto ala Presto while the shrimp was almost done with some egg noodles I had on hand.

The next dish was a grilled chicken breast and simply poured a few spoon fulls of the Perfect Basil Parmesan Pesto toward the end of its cooking stage as well.  Any reserve in the pan, I pour over the salad as my dressing.

Pesto Dinner Options EK Sunday Dinners (1)

Lastly, I used my new FAV, Canola Garlic Oil Parmesan Pesto as a dipping sauce or drench over an individual crab cake!  These pestos are great for mixing and matching.  Even for a simply pesto mozzarella toast!  So delicious and easy!  They will store for about 4 to 6 weeks in the refrigerator in a well sealed container or jar.

Items Used: Oster Blender | Plastic Container Cups | Small Wood Serving Bowls

From my kitchen to your table! Bon Appetit!

FAV Amazon Face Deals

If you missed my Facebook Lives on my FAV Amazon face items, don’t worry!  It’s all here along with my usual basic routine. But first, if you haven’t signed for AMAZON Prime. What are you waiting for!!! Below is a sign up link to get these amazing FAV’s of mine and get some really good most of the time FREE shipping deals sent directly to your home.

My Fav Amazon Deals (1)

First thing in the morning I wake up and wash my face with Aveeno Face Wash and rinse.  I then apply my fav face cream Retinol Advanced, no matter if I’m wearing makeup or not for the day.  I won’t put it on if I’m going straight to the gym after I drop off the kids.  I’ll save it for after my gym shower and then I’ll smear it on.  Fun, huh!

Let’s be honest…it takes a village!

On a very cold day and my skin needs more help I’ll use some Olay cream as a secondary backup. But again, after I’m done with my exercise. No sense in wasting on sweat!

Next, if I’m going out or want to wear makeup, I’ll then apply a good size dime drop of It Foundation and let it set before I use anything else. 

At the end of the day I’ll wash off my makeup again with either Aveeno Face Wash or the Aveeno scrub, if I have more makeup than usual.  I follow with an astringent…sometimes. I know. I know, I need to get better at it.  I never had much acne prone skin. Knock on wood!  Afterwards, I apply my night creams of Olay Regenerist sometimes or if I feel my skin needs something more, I slap on again my Fav Face Cream or Retinol Advanced!  A little Vitamin E oil and good night! If there’s a zit, I use Tea Tree Oil and let is soak in all night long.

And my favorite before a big event or date night I use my face lift in a jar! My Alpha Hydroxy Cream. This is better than them Diva Rings.  And no  a Diva Ring is not contraceptive related either.  Google it! This fav cream literally gives you fresh renewed skin without going under the knife and shelling out thousands! WARNING: I don’t recommend using everyday and you must use SPF the next few days if outdoors. All instructions should be on the jar. And don’t use before going to an outdoor sunny event. And remember less is best.  It has 7.8% Gylcolic Acid. Rule of thumb here is don’t go over 10% if using it sparingly at home.

This is how I use it. Let’s say I’m having date night with my Big Kahuna or I just want my skin to feel refreshed for the weekend and without going to see an esthetician.  I would prepare 3 days ahead of my event, date, or weekend.  And do I this consecutively for 3 nights.  That would be Wed., Thurs., & Friday. I take a nickel size of the cream on my finger tips and rub in (not on eyelids or  inside the nose…who does that!).  I also use it on my neck and back of hands. This will soak in all night and do it’s work.  It will revive and encourage new cells.  I would begin minimally because it has a slight tingling effect.

I’m becoming a bit more consistent and daring and now I’m trying charcoal mask sheets and mud cream masks every hump day. That’s Wednesday, you know that right?

A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Let me know which one’s you tried and like.

Creamy Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

Creamy Cheesy Casserole EK Sunday Dinners

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner’s!  You are most welcome to take a visit and have a seat at our table for another incredible Sunday Dinner dish.  I remember my Mom always had the biggest meals on a Sunday. I’m talking about homemade from scratch meals.  Do I do that….hmmm…every now and then. But mostly I find taking some short cuts, pre-prepping, or take out is best for this busy Mom. I should really have a new title. MOM should stand for Multi Optimizer of Missions.  Sounds good to me. That will be another time as long as I can have my own cape! Another time! Another time!

Let’s get to gathering before we gather at the table. This is a great recipe to only make half or prepare it all and then freeze half before baking.

Creamy Cheesy Casserole EK Sunday Dinners (2)

*Note:  You can use a smoky flavored bacon salt to compliment any smoky cheese of your choice.

The last 10 minutes allows for some browning on top and the delicious smells will hit your nose when it’s done.

Here are some of items used: Bacon Salt | Onion Powder | Large Baking Pan Casserole 

Onion Scissors | Foil | Serving Spoons
