One King's Lane Day of Kitchen Sale



I love the freshness of spring! It gives me the urge to shop for new kitchen essentials and things that are not so essential. I can always use new cake plates, dishes and fun things to spruce up my culinary creations. 

With that in mind, the One Kings Lane Day of Kitchen sale is upon us! This is an amazing sale because it is a great opportunity to get a better price on some high quality kitchen items that One Kings Lane has to offer. 

The following are a few of my favorite sales of the moment. One Kings Lane sales only last 72 hours which means, if something lovely catches your eye, you should snap it up! I have missed out a few times! This Day Of Kitchen sale is on until April 26th so get going! I'd love to see what you get. Are you going to change up your kitchen for spring?

Heart Shaped Basil



It's time to start planting all sorts of things in the garden already, but the weather has been a roller coaster so far this spring. It has warmed up and then dropped down to freezing temperatures again.....back and forth a few times already. There has been sunshine, rain and snow in the past couple of weeks! Something very different from the past few years.

So far, I have only my garlic outside which was planted last fall. I like to grow herbs, tomatoes and usually peas as well, but am afraid to get started just yet. It was warm today, but we are supposed to have freezing temperatures again this weekend, so I will wait.

For now, I have posted a picture of the heart shaped basil that I found in the basil bunches last summer. I also found a heart shaped potato last year!

I wonder what I will find this summer. Have you found any interesting shapes in your garden?

Fried Calamari


Fried Calamari is one of my favorite appetizers. It is pretty filling so I sometimes just have it as a snack in the afternoon. It's easy to make and the kids love it!

Simply cut some squid into rings or strips and dip them into eggs and then a flour mixture.
Have a separate bowl with 1 beaten egg in it and another bowl with a flour mixture in it. (1 cup flour, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1 tsp. cajun spice)

After coating the squid in the egg and then the flour mixture, deep fry it until golden and place on a plate lined with a paper towel. Let it cool for a bit and enjoy with your favorite dip! (I sometimes use salsa, garlic mayonnaise or ranch dressing)
