This is an awesome post and full of so many amazing ideas. I'll have to come back to look at the beans and rice recipe and the jeans blanket. Those caught my attention right away!!!

~TAMY 3 Sides of Crazy~ said...

I have to try some of that peppermint Biscotti and I love that quilt top - how cute.

I got a confirmation from the carnival for my entry, but I guess it didn't make it to you?

Susie said...

What a festive tackle!!

AmyK said...

YUM! Will you come cook for me?! Pleeease?
Looks SO good.

A Dusty Frame said...

The jeans blanket and goats milk soap are links to items for sale?

Did the wrong links get put in?

Thanks for putting this together.

Thanks for including my post!

The name of the recipe is actually "Bisquick Chicken Fingers" (not chicken bisquit fingers) and my name on my blog is "Krusty The Cat", not "Krusty The Car" LOL

Feel free to use the photo if you want ;o)
