Cooking Craze

Posted on

Something amazing happened this week.  I made dinner TWO nights in a row!  AND the dinners were new recipes!  Yep.  It’s Ok.  I’ll wait while you catch your breath.

Are you breathing again?  Good.  My family is still in shock. 😉

Maybe you do this too? – Pin a ton of yummy recipes to your Pinterest boards and never make anything.  That’s me.  You’d think I like to cook if you saw my food boards.  The truth is I hate to cook.  Hate it.  It’s not really the effort to cook, it’s thinking about what to cook.

So what did I cook you ask?  Sunday night I made this…

TWO TIMIN’ PASTA BAKE

1 box penne pasta

1 (15 oz.) jar Alfredo sauce

1 (24 oz.) jar Marinara sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

You can get the directions here.  It’s super easy and very yummy.

Monday night I made this…

Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup in a Slow Cooker

You can get the recipe and directions here.  (Please forgive me if this is not the original source.  I’ve seen this recipe in so many places.)

The soup was a definite hit because my son said “This is pretty good”.  A true miracle, believe me!

I know my friends and family are thinking right now “WHO ARE YOU?”  Well, I like to shake things up a bit.  I can be wild and crazy.  But I do think cooking for the third night in a row might be going a little too bonkers.  I will have to see if I think the family can handle it. 😉

Nutella Hiatus

Posted on

That feeling of true happiness…I am addicted to Nutella.  Seriously.  When I’m stressed out… A spoonful of Nutella.  Chocolate craving?  A spoonful of Nutella.  Happy or sad?  A spoonful of Nutella.  Walk by the jar?  A spoonful of Nutella.  Why am I gaining weight?  I have no idea! 😉

I can’t buy it anymore though.  I will eat the whole jar within a week.  Or less.  My favorite breakfast, snack and sometime dinner is whole wheat toast with peanut butter and Nutella on top.  It’s fabulous!  But I’m on a Nutella Hiatus for a while.  I must be strong.  I must have Hubby do the grocery shopping so I won’t be tempted!

But that’s not stopping me from sharing these yummy looking recipes I’ve pinned over the past year.  I haven’t made these recipes, but the pictures say it all.  Please, if you try any of them and I’m still in my Nutella Hiatus, tell me they’re horrible.  Be kind.

These aren’t all the recipes I’ve pinned.  If you want to take a look at even more crazy delicious looking recipes, check out my Nutella Pinterest Board.  Enjoy!

Favorite Vodka Drink Recipe

Posted on

Happy Friday!  Today I’m going to share with you my favoritest alcoholic drink.  🙂

My friend, Janet, introduced vodka and tonic drinks to me, made with citrus flavored Vodka.  They are indeed yummy!   My Hubby liked them too, and started making them at home.  

Then we ran out of tonic!  Did my Hubby panic?  Did he run around the house screaming “why oh why?!?”  (oops, sorry, that was me.)  Noooo!  He decided to use what we had instead… Fresca.  Oh my goodness!!!  It’s even yummier than the tonic!  Hubby upped it a notch and served it with a slice of orange.  (Hubby says to squeeze the slice of orange into the drink to get the right taste.  Then you may add a slice to the side of the glass to get the “look”.)  Genius I tell you!  I married an absolute genius! 😉   This drink is so refreshing and delicious!  And Fresca has zero calories!  It’s like HAPPY on a diet! 

Drink carefully and enjoy!
