Pretzel Rolo Turkeys

Cissy and I did a fun edible treat recently.  Aren't these Turkey candies adorable?  Let's enjoy a couple with a cup of tea, shall we?

Pretzel Rolo Turkey

I saw these cute turkeys somewhere on the internet, and Cissy and I had fun making them. They're a little messy to do, but aren't they cute?


  • Small round  pretzels (we used leftover pumpkin shaped ones)
  • Rolos
  • Googly candy eyes
  • Yellow (we used orange and red, too) M&M's or Reese's Pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. 
  2. Place the pretzels on  a parchment lined baking sheet.  Unwrap the Rolo candies  and place one on each pretzel. 
  3. Put the baking sheet in the oven for about 1 minute, just to get the Rolo a little melty.
  4. Place  the googly candy eyes towards the upper part of the Rolo.  Add the M&M, or Reese's Pieces for the beak, and then place three Candy Corn in the back of the Rolo for the feathers.

Look what Cissy was able to take home to her family!

I recently had the happiness of attending the Thanksgiving Lunch with my daughter and Cissy.

I also was happy to watch Harper's adorable Thanksgiving program and Feast, with my daughter-in-law.  Baby Hayden was busily sleeping away!

Corn Pudding

 Yes, it feels like Autumn finally has arrived in Texas, but It's still nice enough for tea near my waterfall.  I'm using my teacup that I received from The Enchanting Rose's 11th exchange. 


This beautiful tea towel and the pretty napkins are from my sweet friend, Michele, who blogs at  The Nest at Finch Rest.   I had the pleasure of meeting Michele this past summer when visiting Ohio.  She's as sweet and nice as they come!  Michele also sent some Harney and Sons African Autumn tea, which is so tasty, and some darling Autumn picks and stickers.  Thank you, Michele!

My peach Fire King luster ware teacup is so perfect for Fall.  My Autumn teapot was an Ohio thrift store find awhile back.

Yield: 8-10 servings

Corn Pudding

This recipe is from Susan Branch's Autumn book. It's a great recipe for Fall, and can even be served for brunch, with some maple syrup.


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can corn, drained (I used a 15.25 oz)
  • 1 can creamed corn (I used a 15.25 oz)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika (I didn't measure...I just sprinkled on top)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix  all the ingredients EXCEPT the paprika.  Pour into a buttered 9" square baking dish.  Sprinkle with paprika.
  3. Bake for 1 hour.  Serve pudding hot or warm.

The Enchanting Rose's 11th Teacup Exchange

 I can hardly believe that I have been participating 11 times in Stephanie's exchange, from The Enchanting Rose.   I was the lucky recipient from Doniene, who has two blogs,  Doniene's 365 Days-2017 and Now It's Just Quilts!  I was excited like a little kid on Christmas morning when my package arrived on my doorstep!

 I received these darling note pads.  I'm forever needing these.  Aren't you? 

 I love cookbooks and read them like novels, from cover to cover.  I have found so many teatime treats that I'd like to make from this Afternoon Tea Book.

 Doniene made me this beautiful apron and quilted a matching potholder.  Isn't that so special?

 I received not one, but two teacups!  I have always wanted a Fire King peach luster teacup, on the right!  I'll bet that Doniene sent the demitasse cup of the left for one of my granddaughter's to use, don't you?

 Doniene made the sweet bird that's peeking into the box of tea that she many flavors for me to choose from!

Thank you, Doniene, for all your thoughtful, and most appreciated gifts!  You certainly spoiled me and made me feel special.  I donned my Favorite Tea Shirt, that my dear daughter gave me, to enjoy a cup of tea!  I gifted Laura, from Decor to Adore as my teacup partner, and you can see what I sent to her here.   I've had the pleasure of meeting sweet Laura, and she is just a delight!  Thank you to dear, sweet  Stephanie, our hostess,  who puts so much time, effort and love in these exchanges.  Please visit The Enchanting Rose on November 8th to see all the participants.  

Laura sent me this beautiful handmade, pop up card as a thank you.  Wasn't that thoughtful of her?  We all love to feel appreciated, don't we?
