This cheesy corn spoon bread has two of my favorite ingredients; cheese and corn :D  This will go perfect with any holiday meal.  You can even use it as a staple year ’round.  This will bake up perfectly for any pot-luck or church function.  Cheesy corn spoon bread could easily be converted into a time-saver by using corn bread mix in place of a few of these ingredients.  This would also make it much sweeter.  I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as we did!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Disney Reveals Mona! #Moana

Disney Reveals Mona!

Okay, things just got REAL!  Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for MOANA, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest to be in theaters in late 2016.   I just love watching these films unfold.  This  film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”). This looks like it is going to be a LOT of fun.  I cannot wait for the trailers to start rolling out :D

From Disney:

 Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”).

“John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said Clements. “Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

Win A SmileBrilliant Teeth Whitening Kit

Win A SmileBrilliant Teeth Whitening Kit

Going to the dentist to whiten your teeth can be a lot of work and it can also be very expensive! Most teeth whitening kits are hard to use and don’t fit properly to your teeth. SmileBrilliant makes custom fitted teeth whitening trays – so they actually fit in your mouth and can whiten your teeth better! After several trips to the dentist you eventually have your trays and gel to whiten your teeth. Save yourself some time and money and whiten your teeth with SmileBrilliant! You will not have to make a single visit to the dentist!

SmileBrilliant! is a national dental lab designed to help their customers receive professional strength teeth whitening without ever visiting a dentist! Their lab was specifically created to curb the high cost of cosmetic teeth whitening that is charged at dental offices around the world.

SmileBrilliant clients can trust their lab-direct professional teeth whitening service to deliver dramatic results at the very best price, worldwide. They truly believe that if you become their customer – then they will have you, your family and friends as clients for life! So go ahead and become their next teeth whitening client. You will be satisfied with your decision!

The SmileBrilliant lab creates custom-fitted bleaching trays and professional strength bleaching gel. Many people are surprised to discover that it is actually the dental labs like SmileBrilliant that do the work for many dentists (making the custom fitted trays and supplying the bleaching gel) for top cosmetic dentists who resell their work to their clients. It was their goal to develop a process to cut out the ‘middle man’ and allow clients to have their teeth professionally whitened lab-direct with no dentist visit. So now they can sell direct to you at a much lower cost!

Order your kit and they will send you the materials you need to make your custom teeth whitening trays. You send the impressions back to their lab and they create trays to whiten your teeth. The average person who wears their trays for 3 hours a day or sleeps with them over night will have removed all the stains from their teeth after 5-7 applications.

SmileBrilliant gel

Once lucky person will win a SmileBrilliant Teeth Whitening Kit plus 3 whitening and 3 desensitizing gels ($139.90 value). This giveaway is open worldwide. BUT – If the winner is outside the US, they will have to cover the shipping cost for shipping their impressions back to SmileBrilliant. [Read more...]
