Hello!!! Can you say DELISH!? These chocolate knee length boots are from the Beach Peach Boutique line named after my series A Magical Cures Mystery Series! I adore the zipper in the back and awesome buckle on the side! Did you see that plaid on the inside? It helps keep your tootsie warm! These are the Mr. Prince Charming boots!!
The last thing I'm lovin' this Thursday is my NARS lipstick in FIRE DOWN BELOW! I love NARS because it keeps my lips moist and I'm rarely without my lipstick. But this red is awesome! Some reds are too orange for me...not this one! It rocks!!
What are you lovin' this Thursday? Be sure to tell me in the comments in case I decide to pick up something you are lovin'! If I pick something from your lovin' list.....you win a prize!!!
Easter is in April and the Derby is in May! But here in Kentucky and the south, we don't have Easter without the Derby pie!
Kentucky Derby Pie
(from my mama~Linda Lowry) My mama’s Derby Pie is smack your mama good! It’s a southern pie with walnuts and chocolate chips. You can use pecans in substitute for the walnuts, but I really like my walnuts!
½ cup melted butter
1 cup sugar
½ cup flour
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¾ cup Walnuts or pecans (your choice not both!)
¾ cup chocolate chips (or more if you really want it gooey!)
Mix in the order that’s written under the ingredients. This is very important. Pour the mixture into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
Enjoy this amazing video of an artist decorating eggs.
