Out With The Old, In With The New

Old Banner
New Banner

With getting a fresh new start on my blog, I figured it was time to retire my “Ball” jar banner just on my blog. Say hello to my new banner for my blog. A nice Adirondack beach chair, mocktail, and sandals. View my old blog banner on my Etsy shop.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new look for Ramblings About Art & Life.


French Toast And Fresh Fruit For Dinner

Nothing like a good old classic, breakfast for dinner. French toast, fresh strawberries, blueberries, mango, and the rest of the eggs from making the french toast. Maple syrup on top of the French toast. Depending on how many people your feeding, here’s the ingredients for making the French toast.

Sour Dough Bread Or Any Bread You Desire.

2 Cracked Eggs Scrambled To Start, Add More Eggs As Needed.

Pam Cooking Spray, I Prefer The Coconut Spray.

Frying Pan Or Griddle.

Add cooking spray to frying pan or griddle and place one peace of bread at at time to scrambled egg mixture and place on pan or griddle. Cook for about two-three minutes on each side and place on serving platter. Add the fruit that I have on my list or any fruit you desire. Enjoy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Suggested Side Items: Breakfast sausage or bacon.

Orange Chicken Thighs

Easy makes me happy when cooking dinner at night after a long day. These delicious chicken thighs with Bird’s Eye Steam fresh vegetables and mango will do just that.

1 package of frozen chicken thighs.

1/3 cup of orange juice.




Pam Coconut Cooking Spray.

Frying Pan.

In a frying pan, spray a thin coat of cooking spray, add your orange juice, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of honey on with the orange juice mixture.

Flatten out chicken thighs in frying pan, so they cook evenly. Place a lid on the top of the frying pan for about ten minutes.

Remove lid and flip chicken let chicken cook for about five minutes without the lid. Flip chicken again and place lid back on the top of the frying pan and cook for about five-six minutes.

When chicken is done cooking move frying pan to another burner and keep lid on.

Choose any vegetable you like when making this chicken recipe. I prefer Bird’s Eye Steam Fresh Mashed Cauliflower and Steam Fresh Sweet Potatoes with Delmonte diced mangos.

Quarantined, Trying Not To Feel Bored

Washing my hands for 20 seconds, washing everything with Clorox, Lysol, and Windex, and almost feeling like a bump on a log sitting on the couch working on the computer, drawing, and crochet.

Talking to family on the phone, my dad being sick in the hospital and not able to visit him because hospitals on lockdown, life has been rough and upside down.

With being quarantined for the last couple of weeks with this coronavirus outbreak, not going out much other then to the grocery store and maybe the occasional art supplies.

Putting life back together, I’ve been rethinking my whole blog/website.

Wanting to put my focus more on my artwork, I’ve decided to wipe the slate clean and make a fresh start with my blog.

All my artwork photos are listed in my new art portfolio, recipes will be listed with my food portfolio, and all life posts will be displayed on my blog with new projects.

If I write posts like these, you’ll see a photo of something that makes me happy!
