Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookie Bars

29 Jan 2018 In: Recipes

The perfect soft & chewy cookie recipe that can feed big crowds at your next potluck, block party or family reunion.

*side note, please disregard the christmas decor in the background, YES thats when I made them. Yes it has taken me this long to post this recipe… Don’t Judge Me!*



















I am always looking for a recipe that will make large quantities sometimes– especially when I bake.  I feel that when I bake something I need to make sure to have enough for not just my own greedy family but also for my co-workers (which are like family), my sister (the one who lives down the street from me), and friends.

If you think about it that’s quite a tribe right there!  Of course the majority of the time they ALL are always asking me to bake something…anything.  They don’t care as long as its sweet, delicious and satisfying.

Reality Check, Please!

15 Jan 2018 In: Thoughts

*This post was published in 2009 and I wanted to bring it back with a few updates and tweaks*

Did you know that diners spend an average of 109 seconds looking at a menu?

I know that when I go to a restaurant I love looking at a menu and seeing what is offered from drinks to appetizers, to entree’s and of course to my favorite desserts!

While I was reading The Food Network Magazine, I came across an article written by Beth Shapouri which I found quite informative and I knew I needed to share it with you all.


Restaurant Menus are designed to make you eat lots and spend more.

Try and catch some of these sneaky tips the next time you dine out… You’ll be amazed at what you will notice now! Read the rest of this entry »

2018, year for SUCCESS

2 Jan 2018 In: Thoughts

2018 is here!

For so many that means a new year resolution.  A new goal. A new start.

For me it means a new word.  A word that I will focus on all year, and make happen.  This year 2018 means SUCCESS!  Success in so many aspects in my life.  Business wise, Family wise, Health wise. Faith wise.

If you are still thinking about what you want 2018 to be for you keep searching for an answer.  Never stop dreaming for what you want or working to attain your goals.

“If you can dream it, then you can do it!”– never forget that!

Take a few moments and thing about what you see in the next 12 months.

Let me know what your word for the year is?

Having a soon to be teenage girl (she is 12 about to be 13 in a few months… but really going on 25), shopping can be a pain in the you know what!  KK is a girlie girl but also just at the age where she’s branching out… she loves makeup, music, hanging with her friends, singing, acting, musical theatre (drama queen to the max), and fashion.

Turkey week is here…

21 Nov 2017 In: holidays

Thanksgiving is a few days away and I am so excited.  Thanksgiving is my all time favorite holiday… I don’t know if its because of all the food we eat and make (which probably is the reason) BUT… I love the smells, the feel of the holiday, the colors and coming together with family and friends and being thankful of one another.

I start preparing my Thanksgiving meal weeks in advance and have a countdown of when to prep items and purchase as well.  This year my husbands family is coming in town and we are all gathering at my in-laws house.  We set-up our Menu weeks ago and of course we all claim what we are bringing for extravaganza, because we always have more than enough food and PLUS nothing is better than Thanksgiving leftovers.  I love Thanksgiving so much that because I’m not hosting it this year I am making a small turkey for us to have for our house so I can do so many things with after…

Here’s a handy guide for food to have (whether your making it all or having others bring) to go by if you are hosting Thanksgiving at home:  Read the rest of this entry »

Crescent Breakfast Ring

2 Nov 2017 In: Recipes

This crescent breakfast ring will become everyone’s favorite weekend breakfast choice!

If it was possible to live on carbs alone I think I would do it?  of course the ultimate ending answer would be that I wouldn’t end up being 500 pounds if I did…

I remember my mom would make these crescents rolls with cheese inside and bake them.  They would be the absolute best things to eat for breakfast before school.  I make the same things for my kids. Read the rest of this entry »
