Chocolate Covered Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

A delicious twist on oatmeal raisin cookies. Chocolate adds a nice slightly bitter balance to them.



Ever get weird cravings? Like all of a sudden all you can think about it one food, for days on end? For me it always seems to happen when I'm trying to get healthy. I've always had a sweet tooth. I blame my dad, who fed me ice cream at only 3 months old, lol. This time my craving came from talking about movie theater candy. As a child I'd get Glossettes chocolate covered raisins when we went to the movies. 



 I ended up getting a huge bag of chocolate covered raisins on my last trip to the bulk store. Anyway, I decided that I wanted to make something with them. So I did a search and came up with tons of ideas. Brownies, blondies, cookies..... these cookies from Sally's Baking Addiction quickly caught my eye. I love oatmeal raisin cookies with chocolate chips in them, so why not just use choco covered raisins? I pretty much followed the recipe to a T, except for only using 1/2 tsp cinnamon, rather than 1 1/2. I did bake them a bit longer though, since they didn't seem baked through after 10 minutes. These cookies are FABULOUS! Just ask my cat..... who seriously tried photobombing  my cookie shots for this post, LOL. She's never done that in the whole 5 yrs I've been blogging, so you know the cookies are awesome! The kids really loved them too. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. They'll have you reaching for a second and a glass of milk!

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
