Why I’m No Longer Scheduling a Saturday Night Quilt Video

Five months ago, I started uploading a quilt video every Saturday night.  I didn’t miss a beat, even when I traveled.  There are two reasons I wanted to do this.

  1. I would be encouraged to make a new quilt (or continue a quilt series) so I’d have steady content every weekend.
  2. I wanted to test that weekend schedule to see how those videos would perform in youtube’s analytics.

After five months, I feel I’ve done enough to satisfy both my reasons for why I put that task on my schedule (I’m practicing enoughability, which I talk about in this post).

Yes, I’ve proven over and over again that I can provide content on a regular basis.  I think over 2,000 videos in 5.5 years speaks for itself. lol

I’ve also discovered that those videos are not performing as well as I’d like inside the youtube analytics.  I honestly think that uploading on a Saturday night is not the best time to upload.  I seem to do better with random uploads during the week… except for fabric unboxings.

Fabric unboxings seem to suck for me no matter what.  They simply don’t pay well at all.  It might be time to pull the plug on those for the overall health of my channel. Still thinking about that.

I will still be making the quilts along with designing quilt patterns. I simply will not have a scheduled night.  It’s going to be whenever I want and as often as I want.  I gave it 5 months to learn if it would work for me… and that is enough.

Cookie Dough Cupcakes Recipe – Easy 3-Ingredient Cookie Dough Hack

Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

Check out this huge selection of Betty Crocker Cookbooks!

INGREDIENTS
1 roll Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies
2 tablespoons liquid (any flavor juice or water)
2 eggs
(see my tips below)

DIRECTIONS:

1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 12 regular-size muffin cups. Let cookie dough stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.

2:  Break up cookie dough in large bowl. Add the liquid of your choice and eggs.  Beat mixture with electric mixer on medium speed just until blended.  Spoon into baking cups.

3:  Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cupcake comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.  Frost as desired.

Darlene’s Tips:  If you want more flavor, add a few drops of extract to the liquid of your choice, especially if using water. I bet you could make this with other cookie dough flavors too, so experiment!

INGREDIENTS
4 bone-in 1″ thick pork chops (about 2 lb)

2 tablespoons cornstarch
(see my tips below)

Cheesy Potato Soup – Easy Slow Cooker Recipe

Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

Check out this huge selection of Betty Crocker Cookbooks!

INGREDIENTS
1 carton (32 oz) chicken broth (4 cups)
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
5 cups diced peeled russet potatoes (about 5 medium)
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups shredded American cheese (8 oz)
optional: green onions for garnish
(see my tips below)

DIRECTIONS:

1:  Spray 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

2:  Reserve 1/4 cup broth in small bowl, cover and refrigerate. Mix onions, potatoes and remaining broth in slow cooker.  Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8 hours.

3:  Increase heat setting to High. In small bowl, beat cornstarch and reserved broth until smooth. Add to cooker and stir. Cover and heat to simmering and cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened.

4:  Stir in cheese until well melted. Sprinkle servings of soup with green onions if desired.

Darlene’s Tips:  You can add a cup of any canned or frozen vegetables to this soup. You do not have to shred the american cheese. Just buy slices and rip them into pieces when adding to the soup. You can also try topping with bacon bits and/or croutons before serving. No croutons? Pieces of  toasted bread will work.
