Pearberry Fruit leather recipe

Here is my recipe for Pearberry Fruit Leather:

3 pears
1 container of blackberries
1 tablespoon of honey

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees

Cut up pears and place in the food processor. Add the blackberries and purée until there are no lumps.  Add honey and mix it up. 

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and  spread it evenly.  Bake it for about 5 or 6 hours until completely dry. 

Remove the fruit leather from the cookie sheet carefully and cut in to strips and enjoy. 

My fruit leather is really thin. It is really good this way. It melts in your mouth and doesn't hurt your teeth, like the thicker stuff does. It's also a little crunchy. We love it though. Noah tried to attack it this morning, I thought it would be great for lunches.
If you would like it thicker you could use a smaller cookie sheet or increase the amount of pears and blackberries.

Easy Bacon and Cheese English Muffin Sandwich


I am not a big fan of breakfast honestly. I enjoy it on special occasions and sometimes on weekends. I know I should eat it more, I am working on it. When I am looking for an easy and delicious breakfast. I make homemade breakfast sandwiches. I am not a fan of egg on a sandwich. I don’t eat nearly as much sausage as I would like, because it’s time consuming and messy. I used to buy the frozen precooked patties but it never seemed like I got my money’s worth. I love sausage biscuits and gravy but I am not very good at making them. My mom makes the best sausage biscuits and gravy. I am happy that I don’t make them well or she would have me make it. It’s something special my mom makes me. There aren’t many of those things still. 

Pancakes are good, but not with syrup. I like chocolate chip pancakes so the syrup makes it taste weird. Here’s something strange. Noah doesn’t like syrup on waffles but does on pancakes. I am the opposite. Now I love bacon. It’s one of my favorite foods so I can eat bacon all day any day, every day. I used to eat massive amounts when I was younger. I don’t really do that anymore. I created a simple breakfast sandwich that is ready in a couple minutes including prep. 

Sheila’s Bacon Breakfast Sandwich:

English Muffin

2 slices of precooked bacon

Two pieces of American Cheese ( I like Velveeta slices)

Open up the English muffin. 

Put a piece of cheese on each half of the English muffin

Cut the bacon and make a hashtag with the bacon and close the sandwich

Microwave for 45 seconds and let cool and enjoy!

How to make easy candles

 I used to love making candles when I was younger. I still have an extensive candle collection. Making candles can be really easy and you don't even have to melt the wax. It's a great craft for little kids because there's no heat while making them. I know the thought of dipping candles over a hot pot of wax where you have to make sure you dip them in wax and then in water can be time consuming. It is fun but it is annoying if you don't remember if you did it properly. Noah and I have dipped candles before and they turned out great. I like the easy way though for a quick rainy day craft. 

Easy candles
Different colors of granulated wax
Wicks with the metal button on them 
Glass candle holders. You could even recycle one. 

Place the wick in the bottom of the candle holder. The ones with the metal button help it stand up. 

Layer different colors of wax in the candle holder. You could even break up little bits of scent that you find in the candle making aisle at the craft store to make them smell good.

Trim the wick. Easy Peasy you have a simple homemade
