My Fight with the scale

Oreo Peppermint Truffles

Pretty aren’t they? At our family Christmas party, one of our cousins brought Oreo Truffles. Ummm, hello….where have they been all of my life? I ate ohhh, 5 too many. I knew I had to make them ASAP. She told me the round about recipe, but I decided to add a little zip. I added […]

Well Hi there.  Cute, aren’t I? I’m easy to make too. Yep, I was here on this blog 2 years ago. The chic that writes this blog is too lazy to make something new this year. She claims she is too busy, but I am glad to show my cute little face again. It’s nice […]

COFFEE..COFFEE..COFFEE. Need I say more? I literally could not function without it. If you have been reading my blog since the beginning, I have been singing the praises of coffee for years.

Peppermint Pretzel Bark

Bark is so easy to make and it’s perfect for Holiday parties or just any day of the week really. However, it is quite dangerous to have laying around the house. It is cut in such small pieces, that you just walk by, pick one up and pop it into you mouth. Well, if you […]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Norwegian Salmon for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Do you love Salmon? I know I do and so does my son. I think salmon is the perfect fish for those who don’t necessarily like fish because it is not a “fishy” tasting fish. […]

for not being blogging…I really do. Aside from being knee deep in some professional recipe deveolpment. I’ve been unplugged from the world for 8 days. No phone, no internet, no email..NOTHING. It was dreamy!! We were galavanting about the Caribbean(Bahamas, St.Thomas and St.Marteen) on the largest cruise ship in the world, The Royal Caribbean’s Allure […]
