Starlight Starbright Style Show


Hey everyone,
I know you are all planning to attend the 2nd annual Hope Village Style Show. We had a real blast last year, and this year will be even better! But, I have to warn ya....last year we sold out 3 weeks before the show and tickets are selling even faster this year. Guess what, you can buy your tickets right now on this blog through the PayPal storefront. Just choose how many tickets you want and follow the paypal process. We are only selling general admission tickets on the storefront because most of the runway tickets have sold out...told ya so.... Don't miss this great fundraiser...help support Hope Village.....see ya there.
Oh, I all most forgot...after you buy tickets for yourself and all your friends, give Heather a call at 281-400-2011 and let her know the names, so she can assign tables. You can also let her know if you want us to mail the tickets or hold them at the door.

Calling all Cooks

I know that we asked for recipes last year for the new cookbook, which really is underconstruction; I need more recipes! I specifically need appetizers, salads, side dishes. But please send me your favorites! Here is one of the recipes......Just a sneak peak of whats coming.


1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
3 cup fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in 8 x 12 pan. Sift together flour, 1 cup sugar, salt and baking powder, and then blend with milk. Pour mixture over melted butter. Spread peaches over this and sprinkle with other cup of sugar mixed with the cinnamon. Bake for 1 hour. Crust will magically appear and cover entire surface of cobbler. Serves 6

Wow...that sounds delish!
