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!

💖New season new reasons. I absolutely love it. I absolutely love when old things, old patterns, and old thinking disrupt my blessing vibes to make room for more sharing, more creating, and more blessings. I totally appreciate and embrace it! I am very grateful for the followers who have Liked my Sunday Dinner section.

So with a praising and joyful heart 💖my Sunday dinners will now be sporadically posted as the change of harvest has begun at Share The Flippin Fun Headbands/Blog. Perhaps it will be retitled?

How To Make Lo Mein Noodles

You’re Invited over to our Sunday Dinner! Today it’s about not being intimidated by new foods! Lo Mein has been on my mind lately. There are all sorts of noodles. Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.  I stretched myself by making Chinese LoMein Noodles!  I love food and trying new recipes, especially on my guinea pig family! I didn’t starve them this time to eat a good lunch.

091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF .pngI’m only posting the LoMein instructions because I haven’t yet perfected my sauce.  I know there are a lot of sauces out there I can try but I was rushed this one particular day and had to use what was handy.  I’ll say I was pretty handy at conjuring up a quick Pantry homemade sauce to drench my meat and noodles in.  It was very authentic. Let’s begin with noodles!

091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF  (2).png

Begin with boiling a big pot of water until it boils.  Drop in the noodles and give it a quick stir to loosen up the noodles and prevent some sticking. Follow the instructions and you will have the best noodles on the block. Leave in the hot boiled water for about 5 minutes then drain and ready to serve with your choice of toppings.

091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF  (3).png

I’ll post my super fast version of this flank steak and sauce.  I simply marinated 2 pounds of flank steak with  about a half cup of soy sauce, ginger, and garlic for over 2 hours. Dried up any moisture off the meat before sauteing in a cast iron pan with some sesame oil and black pepper.  Next, I tossed the meat and cooked until just browned. Tossed in the oven at 350 degree oven and baked for another 10 minutes while the noodles were doing their thing. With the reserve sauce in pan, I mixed in some corn starch, beef seasoning, and water to make a thick sauce. You can easily toss in some veggies such as sliced mushrooms. Once meat is ready, sprinkle in some chopped green onions, and serve as show below. You can always use the shortcut of store bought teriyaki sauce over the meat and sauce.  Or some siracha to spice it up a bit. 091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF (1)

Enoy!

Fish Taco Sauce

You’re Invited to our Sunday Dinner!  Today I’m only making the sauce. Fish Taco Sauce because it needs time to allow all the flavors to permeate together for a minimum 2 hours. The longer the better the taste. Taste it now and see what a difference it is 2 hours later!  Amazing taste!

Sunday Dinner 090819 Fish Taco Sauce


Here’s the list of ingredients you will need.

1/2 cup mayonaise and sour cream

2 chipotles minced

1 garlic minced

1 tbsp. mexican oregano

Juice of 1 lime

1 tsp sea salt

1 mix bowl, chopping knife, mixing spoon, lid/foil to cover bowl


Top with some chopped slaw, jicama, or mango! What amazingly tasty blends! I think this would taste great on grilled chicken, chicken tacos. Next time perhaps.

From my kitchen to your home.

Bon Appetit!

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!

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!

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