AND, i'm being featured over at my sweet friend Kim's blog ( Queen of Over Doing) today. GO say hi to her too -tell her i sent you. Here's my Q and A that she posted:
Hey there friends! This week I am showcasing some of my wonderful friends & sponsors that are over there to the left on my sidebar!
I've asked them some questions so we can get to know them a little better and I hope you visit their blogs today and often!
I hope you have fun getting to know my friends as I have!
Today I'm handing it over to Holli from Holli's Hoots and Hollers! Holli is a wonderful and very friendly lady and has quickly become a new favorite bloggy friend of mine! She loves Harley's and wine. She's a lady after my own heart!
Q: What is the name of your blog and what's it all about?
Holli says: My blog is Holli's Hoots and Hollers. My blog is pretty random. I travel a lot with my job and when I do, I blog about the restaurants and the sights I see in whatever city I'm in. Mostly it's just about my life in general.
Q: Do you have a small business (or a large one) online (or b&m) on Etsy or Storenvy? If so, how did it come about?
Holli says: Nope! Nothing yet. I'm in the process of starting a business with my cousin and we're in process of working out details, so stay tuned!
Q: What do you do when you aren't at work? How do you spend your "free time"?
Holli says: I love to go junkin! Garage sales, thrift stores, etc. and buy things to "repurpose them". I also have a Harley that my Honey and I ride quite a bit.
Q: Tell me something good!
Wow, where to start. i don't like to cook much but I'm all about desserts and dips. A blogger friend of mine Jules from A Beautiful Day introduced me to a dip this year called Shiner dip.
Shiner beer is brewed here in Texas. I'm not really a beer drinker, but dang this dip is awesome! I've made it almost every other week, no kidding, for parties, potlucks, etc. that's been happening lately.
I prefer to make it the day before you need it so that all the flavors can set in overnight in the fridge. You can get the dip on the internet by typing in "Beer dips".
This makes a large batch which is perfect.
You need 2 pkgs of cream cheese blocks, softened, a bag (2 cups) of shredded cheddar cheese (I use sharp cheddar), a pkg of dry ranch dressing dip, a can of Shiner Beer (whatever beer you have, but use a full-bodied beer, nothing light). Mix it all together while slowly pouring the beer in. I used less than a can of beer but it was enough to add flavor. Refrigerate and eat it with Frito's scoops.
Then the dessert I love that I got from Pinterest was homemade Turtles.
Grab a bad of round pretzels, a bag of rolos and some pecans. I spread the pretzels all over a cookie sheet, then add a Rolo to each pretzel. I put in the oven for about 4 minutes to get them soft. Right when you take them out of the oven, slap a pecan in the middle while good and melty. They are so awesome and quick. They didn't last long
Now I'm hungry and need to go make something yummy to snack on...maybe some Homemade Turtles!
So, you've got to know Holli a little bit here, please go visit her blog Holli's Hoots and Hollers and make a new friend!
Kim, thank you for featuring me today- You're a sweetheart.
