Lea's Favorites



It's a few of my own personal favorites today.  Always hoping you will find one that will become your favorite as well.  


I don't know about your family or you, but we really like pound cakes here at our house.  And, I love to make pound cakes!  So, when I saw this brand new Ultimate Pound Cakes cook book, I HAD to have it!  It was published by the folks that publish Southern Lady magazine and will be available at Amazon on March 1st.  I ordered mine on their early bird offer and have so enjoyed browsing and finding some wonderful recipes that I'll be trying in the not so distant future.  There's even an Italian Cream Pound Cake.  I'd much rather have a pound cake than a layered cake. ~just my preference~ I really don't buy cookbooks much anymore because you can find any and everything you want on the internet, but this just looked too good to pass by.  And, it's such a pretty book as well.


I was looking for elbow macaroni the other day at the grocery store  when I saw this.  I grabbed it so quick, you would have thought it was gold.  I mean, how cool is this?  No more having to boil water, wait for the cooking time of 8-10 minutes.  Just microwave this, add whatever cheese you prefer, stir and serve!  I will say that the pasta might be a bit tough if you are use to cooking your pasta to a very tender state.  I am not, I do not like mushy pasta, so it is perfect for me.


I recently bought a new blow dryer.  I had seen this advertised on Facebook and began checking it out through other sources.  They were having a half price sale and I liked what I read about it.  I had never heard of the L'Ange brand, but I am now a believer in it for sure.  It is a sleek lined, very quite dryer and it's "claim to fame" is how smooth it makes the hair as it dries it.  That sounds like a "pipe dream" to me but it really does leave the hair very smooth.  The handle is small, easy to hold and again, it is soooo much quieter than any blow dryer I have ever owned. ~and I've owned a bunch over the years~  

That's it for today my friends.  I'm pretty sure our weather here in North Louisiana is somewhat confused.  It has been over 70 degrees the past couple of days and very humid. And, it's to be a very rainy weekend.  Ugh!  But, Spring is on it's way and it can't get here quick enough for sure.

Have yourselves a great weekend!

  5. I haven't had much cake over the last few years, but I do like pound cake. Hadn't thought of pound cake instead of layer cakes but I like that idea a lot!

  8. Third times a charm...I tried to comment on this twice last night on my ipad and it wouldn't post. I could go for some yummy pound cake. Where was that pasta when my kids were little? What a great hack. I need to research that hair dryer. I've been using the same one for years (on like the 3rd one) I have so much hair to dry. Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. A delightful post, my friend. I might have to check out the hair dryer as I think it's time for a new one. I tend to air dry my hair, but when I do use a blow dryer I want a good one. The one I have right now seems to make my hair extra frizzy.

    Hugs to you!
