Leftover Halloween Candy Cheese Ball

candy bar cheesecake ball 004

Next Saturday is Halloween already.   I haven't even found my Halloween costume yet, but tomorrow after work I plan on going out shopping for one. I have no idea what I want to be yet. Last year, I was a zombie and I could do that again, but usually I like to be something different every year.  Guess what I happen to be getting on Halloween as well? My new oven is being delivered that day. Yay! This week, I deleted my facebook app off my phone. I think it has been good for me, because w ...

Easy 3 Ingredient Microwave Fudge Bites

The Easiest 3-Ingredient Fudge Bites 024

Guess what?! My oven is not working anymore. I forget what day it was last week, where I was cooking some bacon in my cast iron skillet, and my burner wouldn't shut off. The only way to turn it off was to completely unplug the machine. On Saturday, I wanted some eggs and tried it again. Nope. The burner that wasn't shutting off before came right back on right away after the oven had been unplugged for a couple of days. I have an electric oven. I'm not one of those lucky people that get a gas ...

Monster Eyeball Oreo Truffles

Eyeball Oreo truffles 017

  Halloween is by far my most favorite Holiday. I love decorating. Every year, I tell myself that I need more Halloween decorations. I don't ever buy any full price though. The day after Halloween is the best time to get decorations, because they're %50 off at Spirit Halloween or just about any place where you can get decorations. I try to make my outside of the house look creepy with Grim Reepers, graveyards, and skeletons everywhere. Inside, I like to find candles, table decor, you name it. ...

Going to be putting up my Halloween decorations this week. Have you heard of this trick before? You can mix a 15 oz can of pumpkin with just about ...

Skinny No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

homemade pumpkin pie spice 022

Remember that cannoli dip I made last night? Well, I didn't feel like dipping anymore and I thought that would be a great base for a no-bake cheesecake. I ended up pulverizing a couple of graham crackers for the crust and poured the rest of the cannoli dip on top of the graham cracker crust. Voila, it's like a two-fer recipe. What a great idea, cause it turned out great. It's best to put this in the freezer for a bit so it firms up before cutting. Today, I noticed at the grocery store, that ...

Chocolate-Caramel Monkey Bread

chocolate caramel monkey bread 010

  Tomorrow is a pot luck. I have a love/hate relationship with potlucks. Everything looks so good to eat and I want to eat it all.  I don't want to eat everything cause I'm trying to watch my weight. I also like to bring something to potlucks. Most of the time I will bring something in a crock pot, but this time I'm going to bring some Monkey Bread. It gives me a chance to bake something without reducing the calories in the original recipe in order for it to be on the lighter side. Good e ...

This week has been so busy! On Thursday, my brother and his wife were up here for the funeral and on Friday I was out of town all day. I haven't had much time to cook anything at all. The Fall season is approaching really fast. I went looking at all my past pumpkin recipes on this blog, and noticed they needed major picture updating. Like these pumpkin cinnamon rolls. You can see the original pic here on this link. Pretty terrible pictures, but the new pics make me feel like I've come a long ...
