Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Scavenger Hunt questions- Monday Day 6

Todays questions are from participants in the hunt!!!

1) Thanks to Dewey, find a post with a book recommendation!! Someone is always reading a good book!

2)From Amy at Laughing Through Tears, find a blog that has a recipe on it. It doesnt have to be recent, and let us know what it is!!!

1. Amanda always has great book reviews. Here's her most recent recommendation.

2. Marianne, along with some other great blogs, has this blog for just her recipes. Latest posted recipe: fruit dip. Yum!

Have a great week, Amy!

Laura said...

I've been a tad AWOL (whoops!). Funny thing - I've posted exactly these two things recently. Let me not self-promote, though. Always better to actually scavenge. ;)

1. Book recommendation - the ladies over at 5mins have started a new weekly feature with a book recommendation (sorry - sorta cheating). Today's book looks great.

2. Recipe - Laura at has her Menu Plan Monday up, and she's got a great recipe for Pizza Pancakes that sounds really tasty!

1. Melody (#42) has recommended THE MEMORY KEEPER'S DAUGHTER.

2. Stacy (#9)has a recipe for Crockpot Chicken Santa Fe that looks yummy.

3. I left a comment for Larry.

I did stop by Larry's today, he uses plastic hangers :)

1. BookOkie has great book reviews.

2.This recipe was found at Sparky Duck.


1.5 cups drained canned gigondes, butter beans or lima beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley or basil

1/2 cup of a creamy garlic or ranch dressing

Gently rinse beans and drain again. Place drained beans in serving bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil, lemon juice, and parsley or basil. Mix gently with a wooden spoon. Store refrigerated for up to 3 days. Serve at room temperature. Drizzle dressing over top when serving.

Amy said...

1. & 2. On Sunday, May 6th Southern Girl has posted two book recommendations by the same author that was new to her~ Elizabeth Berg. Plus she has a recipe for:

Honey-Chicken Salad

4 cups chopped, cooked chicken
3 celery ribs, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/3 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix all ingredients together and chill.

My hubby said he would make this for me this week! She usually has a post called Savory Sunday where she has a great recipe and a book review or two. Check her out at:

I am off to visit Larry and leave him a comment!

2.) Shoshana has posted a delicious cucumber salad recipe in a TT last december. I highly recommend this recipe ;)

Bonus: HMmmm - Larry´s got a cool blog there. The bug at the end of Shug and Plug nearly killed me... I thought it was a real one crawling on my Laptop. Stupid me *LOL*


Amy, I´ve been shopping today. There´s a little something made of 100% cotton waiting to enter the washing machine ;)
I´ll send it the day after tomorrow - hope you´ll like it!

How about recipes from a different culture! :) This blog has some really good stuff. Today it is using lemon grass in creating a traditional rice recipe! Yum!!! Great pics as well

Extra - I tried to leave a message with Larry .. but I am just not sure how his to answer his anti-spam question!!! I don't know if I am dumb or just plain stupid!!! help!

Either way, in answer to his hanger ques - I use plastic and have never seen the movie!

Lisa is doing the Newbery Challenge, along with her Dystopian Challenge and today she reviewed The Giver. This is a book that I have read and it is a book read by many middle schools, as an adult I really got into it.


I found this gem of a blog two weeks ago on a TT13, check on the link for a yummy, Baked Chicken and vegetables with bacon!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

I’ve been eating low carb on the Atkins way of living for the past 5 years or so. After I started the diet, I really enjoyed the extra energy I have while eating low carb and it has increased my blood chemistry as well! I’m very thankful to Dr. Atkins. I would really recommend it to anyone looking to adopt a new healthy way of living.
