I really love Pinterest as a source for new recipes to try.  But, every once in a while I love to go through my collection of old cookbooks to find a forgotten favorite.

Some of my favorite cookbooks are the simple spiral bound recipe books published by different Churches that were sold in an effort to raise funds for one project or another.

For those of you who might be wondering what is going on with Leslie’s bathroom progress, I can give you a bit of an update!  While major progress has been made, we are not so patiently waiting for one key piece to arrive from Home Depot.

This piece to be exact…..

tub faucet


Pretty, isn’t it!  This, of course, is the tub faucet.  It has the diverter to allow us to install a shower head and hoop shower curtain rod.  We ordered it from Home Depot in early January with expected delivery in 5 to 7 days.  No such luck. We got a call with a new arrival date of somewhere around February 2nd.  Then came the next call which advised it would be around February 18th.  Nope!  Finally after a few calls back and fourth we now have been told it will arrive to Home Depot’s warehouse in the next few days and will be available at our local store for pick up mid March.  To say I am not impressed is an understatement!

So, until the faucet arrives I will share with you a couple of peeks as to what has been going on while we wait.

With Mother Nature making it very clear that no matter what the groundhog said, there will be NO early spring!  It would seem that ever since that rodent poked its head out of the hole in Wiarton and boldly predicted an early spring that it has in fact been snowing.  And -25 degrees.  Without the wind chill.  Another 10 to 15 centimeters of snow are possible over the weekend.  Ugh!

Well I can assure you that does not describe my mother and my sister & I when it comes to our cake decorating skills!  But have no fear these pretty strawberry cupcakes require no special talent.
