Daily Meal Plan Day 12

Posted in : Meal Plans on by : admin

After I created my Grilled Steak Salad in Daily Burn I realized that this may be just the dinner meal I needed to be able to add my Chocolate Eclairs to. And guess what, it was! I was able to create this meal plan under 1500 calories and still have 2 Chocolate Eclairs. I really

Perfectly Cooked Bacon

Perfectly Cooked Bacon
Posted in : Cooking tips on by : admin

This is one of my favorite tips that I learned from Chef Kent during my many cooking classes from him. We were making a wedge salad (which I will make later this week) and he brought out his bacon crumbles and they looked really good. I piped up and said “how do you get your

Thanksgiving Day Menu

Posted in : Featured on by : admin

I know what you’re probably thinking. Thanksgiving isn’t for 2 1/2 more weeks.  Not so at our house.  We celebrate Thanksgiving the first Sunday in November.  I started this tradition about 5 years ago after some of our kids got married.  It seemed like they were always having a tough time dividing  their day between

Thanksgiving Day Leftovers

Posted in : Baking tips, Featured on by : admin

Is there really anything better than Thanksgiving Day leftovers?  Whether it’s later that evening after the big meal has settled, lunch the next day or dinner a couple days later I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like these.  My husband isn’t a big fan of leftovers as a rule.  But turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy,

Thanksgiving Day Meal Plan

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin

Well it’s finally here.  I’ve been promising this meal plan for two weeks.  Ever since I did the big Thanksgiving Day with my family on November 7th.  This is a splurge meal plan that actually has turkey and all the trimmings but it’s still reasonable enough that I’m happy to report I didn’t gain any

Sugarless Pumpkin Pie

Sugarless Pumpkin Pie
Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin

Here I go again.  Another sugarless title when pumpkin naturally has a lot of sugar.  If you want more of an explanation to this dilemma, go to my post on sugarless cranberry sauce.  Any way I decided to still post this recipe even though I mainly just use the recipe on the can of Libby’s Pumpkin,

Hand Dipped Chocolates Made Easy
Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin

I’ve been dipping chocolates for 20 years.  In the past few years I’ve discovered a few tricks that make it a little easier.  I used to take 10 pound Peter’s chocolate bars and cut them up in small pieces and then put them in my oven at 170 degrees and slowly heat them up.  Now

True Inspiration is a Piece of Cake

True Inspiration is a Piece of Cake
Posted in : Featured on by : admin

  I think we all have some nagging inspiration that we never really plan to follow through with. For me, it has always been when I’ve seen a wedding cake, I would think to myself, ‘now that’s something I should try to make one of these days,’ and then I would go about my life

Snowman Cake Pops

Snowman Cake Pops
Posted in : Uncategorized on by : admin

This was a big experiment.  That’s probably what I like most about cooking is that you can get ideas and then try them out with very little risk.  I decided to make these after getting such rave reviews on the cake pops I made at Halloween.  I figured I could come up with a creative way to
