Beef and Bean Enchiladas

So far I have shared recipes for Chicken Enchiladas, Enchiladas Verdes, Chicken Enchilada Pasta, and Beef Enchilada Pasta. So it should be pretty obvious that I LOVE enchiladas. I also like variety though which is why I have recipes for so many different kinds. Today I am adding another - Beef and Bean Enchiladas. They taste just as good (if not better) than any that I have had in a restaurant. Give them a try the next time you are craving Mexican food.

Balloon Animal Necklace

This balloon animal pendant would be fun for a kid or someone who just refuses to grow up and wants to add some whimsy to their wardrobe. All you need is a small package of Sculpey!

Slow-Cooker Black Bean Soup

Nothing is better on a cold winter's night than a good, hearty soup. This black bean soup uses a slow-cooker so you don't have to worry about soaking the beans overnight. Just place everything in your crockpot in the morning and the beans will be nice and soft by dinner time. It is also full of flavor without being spicy.

Shotgun Shell Necklace

If you or a family member are an avid hunter or just into shooting sports, odds are you have a bunch of spent shotgun shells laying around. If you can't reload them, try upcycling them into a necklace!

Bacon Wrapped Deer Tenderloin

Whenever we eat something new, my husband almost always says, "Is it the best _______ you ever laid your lips on?" Well this deer tenderloin is definitely the best! Shelby got it from one of the guys he works with at the welding shop. I swear a redneck man could be incapable of making himself something as simple as a grilled cheese sandwich but you put a piece of wild game in front of him and he becomes a gourmet chef! ;) This recipe makes the venison perfectly moist and tender with hardly any of the usual gamey flavor.

Pallet Wood Christmas Countdown

In December little kids (and overgrown ones) often start every day by asking how many more until Christmas. So it can be helpful to have a countdown calendar so you don't have to calculate it every morning. This pallet wood countdown goes perfectly with rustic Christmas decor. Even if you don't want to make a countdown, this tutorial can be helpful to make other pallet wood signs.

Cinnamon Spice Ornaments

Cinnamon spice ornaments are a classic. They make your home smell amazing work with any decorating style. They look particularly great with a rustic or primitive tree. 

Since they are made with edible ingredients they are safe for little ones to work with. My guys (both the little one and my husband) proved this when they decided to try a bite of the dough because it smelled so good. Haha! Apparently it doesn't taste terrible.

Pecan Pie Cheesecake

Just in time for Thanksgiving, here is a delicious recipe for Pecan Pie Cheesecake! It goes great with Pumpkin Cheesecake and is the perfect end to your family meal. 

I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get this post up in time because I have been busy getting ready for my very first craft show! It is less than two weeks away and I am really starting to freak out! Every spare moment until show will be spent crafting away. Hopefully I will be able to finish everything in time and people will like my work enough to buy a bunch of stuff 'cause we got serious medical bills to pay y'all. On the plus side, regardless of how the show goes, I will have tons of projects to share very soon. :)
