CHEESY LEFTOVER MASHED POTATO PANCAKES

Using leftover mashed potatoes and just a few basic ingredients, you can fry up this delightful and inexpensive dish in a snap.These are awesome! I had exactly 2 cups of leftover potatoes and had a craving for potatoes. What a great evening snack :) I cooked them up in butter and I used garlic salt that had a little parsely in it. I added a little salt after cooking...even though you really don't need it if u use garlic salt and not the powder.

Turn your driveway into a Magical Winter Wonderland With Ice Candles

A few Ice Candles can turn your driveway or walkway into a Magical Winter Wonderland!

Winter time is the perfect time for decorating with Ice Candles.  There is not much more entrancing than fire & ice. Here’s how to make your own!  Super easy if you live in a chilly climate-buckets or any container you like that holds water will work (summer beach pails work great!) The first step to create an ice candle is to finding your mold.  Fill a bucket or pail with cold tap water and placing a tin can or cup in the center. Weigh it down with enough small rocks to almost, but not quite, sink it.Place the bucket outside on the porch -or in the freezer if you live in Southern California like I do- until the water is frozen solid. Carefully remove the block of ice from the pail or bucket (you might need to loosen the ice by running warm tap water over the bucket’s surface for a few moments).Once the ice is free from the bucket, the next step is to remove the tin can or plastic cup from the cente…

Goose Down & Quilted Sofa that would keep you warm

Brilliant! I absolutely adore this big, cushy, comfy, plushy sofa from Gervasoni. The Nuvola collection consists of a lounge chair and sofa from a multilayer and solid wood frame, upholstered with differentiated density polyurethane foam covered by a goose down and polyester fibre quilting. All this and the covers are removable for easy washing.

Can you imagine coming home after a long ass day from school, work, or whatever it is that stresses you the hell out – plop your big ass onto that there couch, kick up your heels, and just go all fetal until you wake up and realize it’s way past dinner and pretty much bedtime? That’s when you know a nap was really worth it. Totally knocks you out.

I want the whole collection. I want the sofa in grey and lounge chair in blue. Why should the TV take center stage in my living room? It’s all about seating people. Cozy, inviting and I’m sure CRAZY expensive so if anyone at Gervasoni is reading this… hook me up? Cheers! Source : YankoDesign
