Pumpkin Gingerbread Cheesecake Bars

Pumpkin Gingerbread Cheesecake Bars

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

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Roll

Pumpkin Roll 4

So I have officially caught the pumpkin bug! I could bake year round with pumpkin if it was seasonally acceptable (which I’m sure no one would balk at that) but I know a few people who would give the weird side eye if I whipped out a nice big pumpkin pie during our 4th of July get together. And yes, that is something I would totally do. Why you ask, well because I can! Read more

Good morning everyone. Well it is now the second day of school and it seemed to be a lot easier to get my kids up and going today then it was yesterday. I hope that we fall into this routine for a while, because I know what it’s like to try to wake kids up repeatedly with no avail and I’m not looking to have a repeat of that this year. Usually it’s a problem of them not going to bed at a decent time and not wanting to get up. I have a bedtime of 8:00 in my house, but my kids seem to want to stay up chatting until who knows when. I’m sure we have all had our little culprits, then in the morning you got the cranky sad eyed little kids who complain that they are so tired, well kid, your fault not mine. I did my motherly duty of setting and enforcing a bed time. Sheesh! Read more

Lemon Bars with White Chocolate Lemon Crust

Lemon Bars 3

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

Fruit Loop Krispy Bars and State Fair Food

Fruit Loop Krispy Bars
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!

Well another Monday is upon us, yippee. Does anyone else hate Monday’s as much as I do? I like the weekend because my who family is together and we just get to spend time with one another. It seems like during the week everyone’s schedule is so different that we don’t get to spend that quality time together that the weekend affords us. Plus Monday’s just suck, it means a start to another work week, Boo.  Read more

So I am happy to say that I have a house full of semi-well people! My son is completely over his stomach bug, woo hoo! I am so happy that as of yet I havent gotten sick. Usually I’m the first one to get sick after my kids come home with the crud. My husband on the other hand seems to be immune. That also could be because he avoids us like the plague when anyone when we are sick. Gee, I wish I could avoid everyone when they are sick, guess it comes with the territory of being Dr. Mom!

Good morning everyone. It is seriously unseasonably cold here in Minnesota the last few days. This past weekend we had our 90 degree hot and humid normal which I admittedly love. Now its only the high of like 63, what gives? This is too cold for my liking. I’m speaking more from always being absolutely freezing and not circulating the way it is. I suppose it is something that I will just have to adjust. Boo. Read more

Frosted Potato Chip Krispies

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
