A Summer Favorite

I posted this recipe a couple of years ago; however, I made it yesterday and thought I'd bring it back.  It is really becoming a summertime favorite!

Take your choice of fruit (I usually choose to use primarily berries).  Sprinkle them with a little bit of sugar and then drizzle them with limoncello (you could skip the limoncello if needed to, but if you don't need to, then use it, it's yummy!).
Let that goodness sit for a few minutes stirring it a couple of times to coat the fruit.

While that is sitting, mix up the following in another bowl:

7 ounces plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup Lemon Curd
1 Tablespoon Honey
1/3 teaspoon vanilla

Then you pour the yogurt mixture over the berries and enjoy!
A great summery dessert that only takes 5 minutes to prepare and doesn't require turning your oven on and heating up the house.

Recipe originally from the Barefoot Contessa

This is a mega comment all in one:

First, this looks SOO delicious! Definitely trying!

Second, you got some amazing deals on clothes! Pants for 2 bucks! Amazing.

Last, my mom also thought it was HILARIOUS when she called one day and I told her I was sitting in the closet with my helmet on during a tornado warning. She was dying laughing! :) But if there is a chance I might get sucked out of my house and thrown around, maybe a helmet could help? It at least makes me feel better!! Ha! It is a pretty funny sight, though.

I just wish they made doggie helmets! ;)

Swiss Oatmeal {Copy Cat Recipe}

I'm obsessed with Swiss Oatmeal.  I particularly love  Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.  If you are not familiar with Swiss Oatmeal, it is a cold oatmeal cereal with fruit and nuts.

I've had a similar recipe for years, but it was only similar.  It wasn't close enough for my liking.  So I finally set out into the land of Pinterest to find a recipe that was a good Copy Cat.  I found a few, combined them and came up with what I think is a very close Copy Cat Recipe of Corner Bakery's Swiss Oatmeal.

Here's what I do (note, this recipe is really just pictures, because I don't really have measurements for these things.  The photos aren't great, but it's easier if I show you what I do)...

Here's the Phase 1ingredients... Milk Honey Yogurt (I use a vanilla greek yogurt) Oats (old fashioned, not probably could do steel cut too)  I've simplified this to where you only need a bowl and a spoon for Phase 1 because I use my yogurt cup as a meas…

It's all about the dress...

I mean I guess it's really all about getting married, but come on, you always anticipate the dress right?  Well holy moly folks!  Today a big secret was released to the press.  No, we still don't know which dress or tiara Kate will be wearing, but we heard for the first time that Princess Diana had a back-up dress!  Here are some of the pictures and sketches...

And you know what?  I like the back-up dress better than the one she wore!  I know, I know.  I'm going to get blasted for saying that, but I'll just confess it right now... My name is Kara and I've never thought Princess Diana's dress was all that and a bag of chips.  Nope.  Not my favorite Royal Wedding Dress by any stretch of the imagination.  What is my favorite?  Probably the one that Sarah Ferguson wore when she married Andrew...
It had beautiful beading and stitching throughout.  Also on the train it had an "A&quo…

Pumpkins, Gourds & Flowers, oh my!

Yesterday, I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  Lisa, Jennifer, and I went as my birthday outing.  We got a late start due to some court delays, so we stopped for lunch first.  I needed some make-up too, so we went to Neimans.  We ogled some purses, had lunch, I got some make-up and then we headed out to the arboretum (in the rain).

It was raining pretty good on the way over, but luckily, we only needed umbrellas for a few minutes.  Thankfully the sun never came out, because it was so humid, I'm pretty sure we would have melted. 

First, we made our way toward the Pumpkin Village...

I love how they made garland out of the mini-pumpkins...

These rose bushes were just stunning!  The roses on each bush varied in color from a coral, to a blush, to a purple hue...
It was Fall at the arboretum, and pumpkins, gourds, and mums are a large part of the visit.  However, they also have a Chihuly art exhibition going on.  I took so many pictures, I HAVE to make that it's whole separate post.  …
