About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

So many recipes...

Can you tell that I've been cooking and baking lately? I've been posting a lot of different recipes to share with you. I will only post recipes on my blog that I have actually tried and like. I just finished catering a Christmas party for my husband's work clients and it was a huge success. My menu consisted of the following:

Chicken Bacon Wraps
Meatballs with an amazing homemade sauce that I whipped together at the last minute
Spinach and Bacon Quiches (I cheated and bought those from Costco)

Super Sausage Dip
Spinach Cheese Dip
French Onion Dip
Spicy Ranch Dip
Ranch Dip

Ham Cheese Ball and Crackers

Peppermint Oreo Cookies
Coconut and Cherry Bonbons
Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Everything was a hit and it's a huge compliment when people go up for 2nd's and 3'rds and then ask for your recipe. I was completely exhausted by the end and I'm still recovering from all that work but overall, it was a lot of fun trying new recipes. I'll post the spinach cheese dip recipe tomorrow along with the coconut and cherry bonbons.
