Happy last day of the year!

It’s almost 1 p.m. and I’m still in my jammies, so the day is starting off slow to say the least! What are your plans for tonight? We just hang out at home. Our oldest is going to a friends house, so it will just be the younger two, some snacks and ringing in the…

Lemon poppyseed donuts?

I mentioned yesterday, that I got a new cookbook for Christmas. As I was reading through it, I saw a recipe for baked donuts. I’ve made several variations and I love lemon poppyseed, so I set out to make them. One problem, I don’t have a donut shaped pan to bake them in, and the…

Artichoke/pesto/cheese bread

In my basket of goodies from My brother’s family, I got a jar of artichoke pesto spread. I like the flavors, but not chunky artichokes, so I was happy when I opened it up that it was a smooth spread. You could use it on crackers, put some on hot pasta, but I decided to…

More Sargento Cheese Coupons + recipes

My friends at Sargento would like 4 people to get coupons to try their cheese. One thing people think of when they are trying to lose weight, is to cut out real cheese by using fake cheese, or fat free cheese. I hate cheeses that don’t taste good, or melt, and a 1 oz. serving…

Biggest Loser re-cap finale

The season finale is always my favorite part of the season. I never miss an episode, but I LOVE seeing what everyone looks like. The final three were Frado, Patrick and America picked Ada as the third person. I thought all of them looked amazing. But before that, let’s talk about the at home contestants….

It’s that time of year again…homemade kit kat bars!

I’ve been making these for many years now, and its one of my favorite things to make during the holidays. The best part is all you need are 3 ingredients: graham crackers, peanut butter, and almond bark in chocolate flavor (a candy coating chocolate). One tip: Do NOT use an off brand or cheap-o kind…

Egg/potato pancake stack

I didn’t do a full grocery shop last week, so I was faced with running to the store last Thursday to pick up dinner. And believe it or not, I did NOT feel like cooking! So, into the frozen food section I went. I ended up getting Gordon’s fish fillets and a new kind of…
