Happy Friday my lovelies!! Are you ready for the big game this weekend? Got all your appetizers picked out and game faces on? We are planning on having some friends over and obviously eating massive amounts of delicious food. Appetizers are hands down my favorite type of food to devour. So I’m making a meal based on all finger foods. But since I have a glutinous weekend ahead of me I wanted to close out this week with a semi healthy recipe for Chewy Banana Nut Granola Bars!

Do you guy’s love Valentines Day? Can you believe it is right around the corner? This is my first Valentines post on the blog since this time last year my blog was just a passing thought and not a reality at the time. I love creating recipes for the holiday’s and these Layers of Love Cheesecake Bars are no exception!! Red velvet has always been one of my most favorite flavors and obviously I would have to use it in a Valentine recipe. Read more
I’ve been told that I love rich flavors. I told that person that they have a bland palette. Lol, that person is my mother. Mrs. Bland as They Come. I don’t know how we are even related. She doesn’t like veggies or fruits besides a select few. Doesn’t like the rich flavors from a decadent dessert and certainly doesn’t like spice. We are complete opposites and I think I may have been switched at birth…on the other hand my dad and I are alike and always have been, so luckily I get to share all my yummy goodness with him.

How is it already Tuesday?!?!? I feel like I’ve been neglecting everyone! I usually like to post every day but life has caught up with me. With the kids back in school, going away for the weekend, a sick child I haven’t been able to post as much as I like. Will you still love me if I post every other day instead? I hope we can still be friends if I do that. I promise I’ll bring you lots of yummy yummy treats! Bribery at it’s best. Who can turn down treats! I know that I can’t. Want me to do something, give me food and I’ll consider it! Read more
Another Monday is upon us! And we are only a few day’s away from the official day of fall! I hope everyone had an enjoyable last weekend of summer. I got the liberty of unloading patio block with my husband. I must say I’m one hurting unit today. 170 16×16″ 40 lb blocks by hand. Yup, you better believe that his girl is SORE! But in the end hopefully replacing our side walks at our house will be worth this painstaking labor my husband put me through. Lol, just kidding it wasn’t too bad. But I definitely give mad props to all you hard-working laborers out there! That is seriously some tough work. At least my husband took me out for breakfast to repay me for my kind service. Read more
I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. It’s that time of year again, I sent my babies back to school today. I’ve been watching all you mom’s via Facebook, Twitter and blogs sending your little ones back to school for the past month and finally today it was my turn. Almost cried, but I held it back. Figured they are getting older and I can save my tears for when the little princess starts school. Luckily she’s stuck with mom for another few years. Since I’m sharing a lovely Lemon recipe today I can still pretend that it’s still summer right? Read more
So I am one of those people who get up in the middle of the night and eat. Usually I go towards sweets. I don’t know what it is, but at like 1am I wake up absolutely famished and feel like I need to go in the kitchen and find something quick that I can pop in my mouth to satisfy my hunger. Am I alone in this or are there others like me out there? Please tell me I’m not alone in this struggle, lol! These bars have been filling that late night need lately! Thank god!
Good morning all you lovely people! I am so happy to finally have my new site designed and switched over to a new host. I feel like I am coming farther as a blogger these days. Taking some seriously steps to be taking seriously. It’s been a lot of headaches trying to get everything figured out and moved and pointed and this and that. I’ve been a busy girl since I’ve done all of it by myself. Does make me feel more accomplished though, knowing that I am able to figure these things out. Read more
So I’m officially halfway through with my vacation and I have accomplished zero. I feel so bad. I haven’t even accomplished sitting on the couch and relaxing watching a movie. What is wrong with me? I keep telling my husband daily that I want to do nothing for a day and just watch movies. I guess when having kids and it being summer time that isn’t a feasible option unfortunately. Unless they want to be lazy with you, and that rarely happens in my household. Read more
