Red, White, and Blue, Cheesecake Cake

redwhiteandbluecheesecake 050

Whenever I attempt to use food coloring in baked goods, my colors are off it always seems. The red in this cake doesn’t look like the red does on the American flag and the blue doesn’t look as bright. I kept on adding more coloring to the cake batter to see if that would help,…

The Moscow Mule

creamy alfredo with bacon and peas 032

It's Friday and do you know what Fridays are for? Drinking! Memorial Day weekend is finally here and tomorrow I am going to the lake cabin after my Mom gets off work. Hopefully it doesn't rain. Tonight, I'm going to make a Red, White, and Blue Cake to bring there and I hope everyone has a fun weekend. I blame my brother for getting me addicted to this drink. The last 3 times I've been over to his place, he's always asked me if I wanted a drink and he will give me a Moscow Mule.  After trying ...

Creamy Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

creamy alfredo with bacon and peas 011

Bacon, peas, and pasta in a hot tub full of creamy bacon-y alfredo sauce. That's whats for dinner tonight folks. Drop your dinner plans today, go to the grocery store, and get all the ingredients to make this now. Or.... you could always just go tomorrow and get the ingredients. It's almost 7pm here, and by now I would assume most people would have eaten already. This is one of the most amazing alfredo sauces I've had in awhile. Why? Because the alfredo sauce is cooked in leftover bacon that ...

Warning!!!!  Please consult your health provider before eating this french toast. May cause your blood sugar levels to sky rocket.

See why I told you to consult your health care provider? I had to get rid of them some how didn't I? Then to top that bread off you dip the french toast in the custard and then the graham ...

Cheese Curd Burger

cheese curd burger 004

This weekend went by so fast and can you believe next weekend is already Memorial Day weekend?!  Does anybody else find it weird, that Memorial Day is a week early this year? I'm so used to it being the last weekend in May. It's been so shitty cold and rainy here lately. Today, there was sleet. I kid you not. In the middle of May for crine out loud. It's only in the 30's and it better start warming up again. Since Memorial Day is this coming weekend, everybody will be getting out their grill and ...

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies 021

I have to back up a couple weeks here on these cookies. The grocery store here has some of the best oatmeal raisin cookies I've ever had in my life. 2 weeks ago, someone let me try them. The cookies are so soft, cinnamon-y, and they have a maple glaze on them. They literally melted in your mouth. The only sad part about them is,  that they come in a plastic container of 12. No way in hell am I going to buy a package of 12 cookies,  because I'll just sit there and eat them all. Everyday f ...
