Merry Christmas, from Desert Rose Lifestyles!

Hiya peeps! We are soooo excited that it's this time of year again - it's our favorite time of year!

We've been loving the Christmas music, decorations, and wonderful mood everyone has been in this year. Between the #sharingiscaring posts spreading love in the book/author community, to the acts of kindness we've seen around, our faith in humanity has been restored somewhat.

We appreciate all of you, and hope to connect with you even more from here on out!

Love you guys,

~Rose & Ken

Ken's Christmas Music!

Hey music lovers! More Season's Greetings from DRL! =)

I put up a post last week for Rose's Christmas List, with my holiday playlist. It's got a bit of everything, especially for those of you who get tired of the same old songs every year.

 In case you're new to Desert Rose Music, Ken is the official music buff. His Christmas List is even bigger than mine!

I figured his would be awesome to share, since it's got everything Rose's list does, plus country, R&B, and more!

Check it out!

Rose's Christmas Mix!!

Hey music lovers! Season's Greetings from DRL!

It's Christmas season, and for better or worse, that means Christmas music! Whether you love it or hate it, you can't get around it. May as well make the best of it, right?

 I've compiled a list of "alternative" Christmas music, including albums like "Christmas Goes Punk" and Italian Christmas.

With nearly 500 songs, it's got something for just about everyone! Especially if you get tired of hearing the same old songs every single year - I know I do!

 Feel free to browse around the list, add songs to your own, and follow it for added songs as the season progresses!

Rose's Hearty Minestrone

Hey everybody!  Rose here, and today, we're sharing our awesome Hearty Minestrone recipe on DRL!  We love soups in our house- they last a long time, are relatively inexpensive, and are fun to make.  Minestrone especially, because we put tons o veggies! :D

We haven't been able to find a recipe we like, so like many others before us, we've developed our own.  It's probably closer to a "stew" but that's ok- we love stew too!

A lot of our cooking is done without measuring everything, so while I'll put the number of each ingredient the recipe calls for, our pictures won't be exactly the same amounts.  We're also making double what the recipe calls for (freezing half for next week) so our proportions will seem really big, if you're going off the recipe.

Anywho, please feel free to check out our recipe, use it, copy it, modify it to fit your tastes, whatever, and just have fun! :D
