Here’s a recipe for my homemade granola. I made this often for my customers at The Spice Rack and sold it by the pound. It’s delicious. You can make it with or without dried fruit of your choice. I added sweetened dried cranberries for my customers at the store. The link to the downloadable recipe can be found on this page. Judi
I truly do enjoy working with textiles and my new-found love is quilting table runners and related items. Here’s my latest. It’s really pretty and as always, I feel connected to anything I create. It was made from cream, tan, and gold tone cotton fabrics. The pictures don’t do it justice. It would be absolutely beautiful on a dark wood table. It measures 47-3/4″ x 12-1/2″. It can be adopted from this page on my website. (It’s item number over40-9).
I made a fabulous stuffed acorn squash the other day, so I decided to make a video of it. It’s not only delicious but is eye-appealing too. It can be made as a meatless main dish or used as a side dish to serve with your favorite entree. Try it and let me know what you think! Judi
Here’s a tomato soup I often made for my customers at The Spice Rack. Only 3 ingredients for regular tomato soup. Add milk for cream of tomato soup and there’s only 4 ingredients. It’s FAST, EASY and delicious! Check out the video. Let me know what you think! Judi
I spent all day yesterday making more food videos…15 in all! WOW! Twelve involve tips when making breads, two are longer food demos, and one is a food comparison. I spent all day today editing and rendering them. What a project! The first is uploading now, so tomorrow I’ll be able to start sharing these with you! Let me know if you’d like to see something specific and I’ll be glad to help if I can! Judi
Here’s my latest quilting creation! It’s made from cotton fabrics in assorted greens, beige, and gold colored prints, made from 4 log cabin squares sewn together. It’s bordered by a pretty beige/green floral print. The size is 21-3/4″ square and would look GREAT on a table. It’s really pretty! If you want to adopt this topper, click here. (You’ll be taken to my craft website. It will be listed on that page if it hasn’t already been sold.) Remember this when you need a gift. (Help to support my habit!)
Somehow I feel connected to anything I create…even table runners! If I needed to name this one, I’d call it “Peaches and Cream” because of the pretty colors. It’s made from cotton fabrics featuring peach, green and cream colors. It is 47-3/4” long x 11-3/4” wide and would look really lovely in any room where peach and green are the accent colors. To adopt this table runner, visit my web page where it’s listed at http://HandMadeInIowa.com/over_40_long.html. You will see it there, if it has not already been sold.

Here’s an absolutely delicious smoothie I came up with when I had an abundance of butternut squash. I incorporated the goodness of flax meal, cashews, peaches, almond milk and yogurt, with a little dash of cinnamon. The blend is rich, creamy, refreshing, very tasteful and oh-so-good-for-you! You’ll find the recipe on my recipes page for smoothies at http://HandMadeInIowa.com/recipes_smoothies.html.
