Moving on...Studio Saga!!!!

Bathroom is done...Yeah!!!!  Just have some storage tubs in there that are destined for the office closet, once I get it cleaned.  Today I got the little bookcase between the bathroom and the storage room, that holds all my cookbooks totally cleaned out....yuck, books are major dust collectors!!!!  Sneeze, sneeze, sneeze!!!  Now, I'm kinda dragging my feet...the Storage Room must be next so things have a place to go......and I don't want to do it....I know I will feel so good once it's done....but...oh Yuck!!!!  It is such a major mess...if you saw it you would think it is something out of Hoarders....TeeHee!!!   

So to stall some more...How about some pictures....These were all projects that we did at Melissa's last month. 
Love the colors on this one...sorry it's crooked!!!
Great Man's card!!!
Love anything with trees
Now...we'll stall a bit more, and do a recipe....This was the dessert I made, for when my Aunt and Uncle were here....When I first looked at didn't turn me on...but looked was fantastic....a great summertime recipe.

Orange Cream Dessert Squares

1 roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
2 Tbls. grated orange peel(from 2 large oranges)
2 pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Orange Marmalade
1/4 tsp. orange extract
2 eggs
3 Tbls. heavy whipping cream
2 drops orange food coloring
1 1/2 tsp. butter
1/2 cup white vanilla baking chips
  1. Heat oven to 350 F.  Press cookie dough evenly on bottom an 1 inch up sides of an ungreased 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.  Sprinkle evenly with orange peel.
  2.  In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, marmalade, and extract on medium high for about 1 minute.  Add eggs, beat about 2 minutes, until creamy.  Spread evenly in crust.
  3. Bake 29-36 Minutes until crust is golden brown, and center is set.  Cool 1 hour.
  4. In small microwavable bowl, microwave whipping cream and food coloring uncovered on High about 30 seconds.  Add butter, and baking chips, stir until chips are melted. Spread mixture evenly over bars.  Refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours till chilled and firm.
  5. To serve, cut into 6 x 4 rows using a thin sharp knife, and wiping blade often.  Cover and refrigerate remaining squares....if there are any.  Will have to make this again for a Bar-b-Que.   Enjoy, and Bon Appetite!
I think the storage room can wait till tomorrow!!!!
