Springtime always likes to dazzle us with new blooms of colors and scents....captivating some of our sleepy senses into a fresh awakening. The cleansing of April showers motivating a cascade of blooming flowers is never more present then this time of the year and it affords us the motivation to start enjoying some of the longer days ahead with new passions and inspirations. Also, with Easter soon upon us, we hope you'll take a moment with a lil' extra prayer for those who've had some challenging times or fill an extra Easter basket with some spring flowers and deliver to an elderly neighbor or friend. Take passion and enthusiasm from the new spring season and aspire to enjoy all the colorful simplicity it has to offer and then pass it on with the same enthusiasm. Grab an umbrella and take a stroll amongst the gardens of new colors with a smile.....Spring does help refresh one's spirits and can generate a multitude of inspirations!

Kozy Clutter has also been inspired to jump into the new springtime season with adorable items capturing fresh colors, themes and whimsical flavors of play with our new seasons bears and bunnies....all hopefully adding just the perfect fresh colorful whimsy to the imagination. We've put together oodles of cuddly spring teddy bears and bunnies just patiently waiting to help bring a lighthearted smile and a few "ouu's" and "ahhhs"! And, as the spring season progresses...other new items are always being added and we hope you'll take a moment and peek in on some of the new and ongoing items being added. We strive to handle each item you purchase with exceptional individual care and try to make that purchase an extra special lil' gift you've afforded yourself. If your purchase is a gift for someone else....then we want it to be something they'll remember you for with caring gratitude. Our goal is to make your internet shopping experience delightful and convenient....so relax, kick off your shoes and enjoy your visit with us.

Happy Spring and take care

Chicken Pot Pie Pockets
(From Chef in Training)
(Prep: 15 min / Cook: 20 min / Ready in 35 min / Makes 4 pie pockets)
8 oz cream cheese
4 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 cups cooked & shredded chicken
     {I usually buy a rotisserie chicken & shred it up}
1/2 cup peeled, cooked and diced potatoes
1/2 cup peeled, cooked and chopped carrots
1/4 cup cooked and chopped celery
1 box refrigerated Pillsbury Pie Crust
*(Optional white sauce for topping)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half and half
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
In a large microwave safe bowl, combine cream cheese & butter.
     Microwave in 15 second intervals until slightly melted and
     and able to stir until smooth.
Add onion powder and garlic salt to cream cheese/butter mixture
     and stir well.
Add chicken, potatoes, carrots and celery to cream cheese
     mixture. Stir until well combined
Unroll both sheets of refrigerated pie crust dough. Cut each of
     the round pie crusts into quarters.
On one quarter of pie crust dough, put 1/4 of cream cheese/chicken
     mixture (about 3/4-1 cup). Place a second quarter of pie crust
     over the top (make sure it lines up with bottom quarter) and
     pinch seams to seal off. You can flute the pie crust edges for
     a prettier look.
Repeat until you have four (4) pie pockets. Cut about three small
     slits on the tops of each pie pocket for breathing.
Place on a greased cookie sheet (At this point you can freeze the
     pie crusts. Pull out when desired from freezer and place on
     greased cookie sheets and let sit for about 10-15 minutes before
     cooking. Then continue with remaining directions).
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until tops are golden
*(Optional white sauce for topping)
Melt butter in saucepan, add flour and stir to combine to form a
     roux. Once you have your roux. Add half and half (or milk) and
     stir constantly until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir in
     garlic salt and onion powder until well combined.
