Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake Bars

Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake Bars


It’s been a while since I have made cheesecake anything.  I had a couple packages of cream cheese about to expire so I wanted to use them up and I had a good idea of what I wanted to do with them.  Peanut butter and chocolate is one of those combos that just go well together.  It’s a match made in heaven and it certainly rings true in today’s dessert!

Kielbasa Pasta Bake

Kielbasa Pasta Bake

Happy Easter!  I hope you all enjoy your day with family and take time to ponder the wonderful life and Atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ!   You all aren't sick of pasta or dinners by now, are ya?  I kind of went on a dessert strike so that I wouldn't go crazy.  It's much easier for me to plan new dinners and blog them, than use all of the precious hours in my day baking and photographing desserts (even though that's more fun), plus I was eating way too much sugar.  So if you haven't noticed, I have a dessert post in-between a couple of dinner posts, just to keep it balanced.  It's good to have new dinner ideas though, right?  I hope so!   … [Continue reading...]

Herb Crusted Chicken with Tomato Cream Sauce

Herb Crusted Chicken with Tomato Cream Sauce

I am incredibly excited to share today's recipe with you all!  When I saw this recipe over at my friend Aimee's blog, I knew I had to make it!  I am part Italian, my maiden name is Venezia.  My great grandparents came to the United States from Italy.  I can't say that this dish is an authentic Italian dish, but it's definitely similar to Americanized Italian, like Olive Garden.  We loved this dinner and will most definitely be making it again!   … [Continue reading...]

Ham and Cheese Pasta Bake

Ham & Cheese Pasta Bake

Easter is coming up in just a few short days and you might end up having leftover ham.  Well, this dinner is perfect for that, and I freaking scarfed it down.  It's delicious!  Last year we made Grilled Ham & Pineapple Kabobs for Easter, which you can also use leftover ham in.  Alternately, you can try my Ham & Broccoli Braid or Cheesy Potatoes & Ham Casserole with your leftover ham.  Cheese and ham go really well together. ;)   … [Continue reading...]

KitchenAid Mixer GIVEAWAY!

5QT KitchenAid Mixer Giveaway April 14th - 18th, 2014

It's always a good day when there's a giveaway involved!  I am not going to lie, I have two mixers in my home.  My Kitchenaid and my Bosch.  I use them for different things.  My KitchenAid is perfect for frostings, cake batters, whipped cream and other small batches of dough.  My Bosch is the only thing I use for breads and I love making big batches of cookie dough in it, but they are both amazing kitchen appliances!    Today I am teaming up with several of my blogging besties, and together, we are giving away one KitchenAid 5QT mixer!!!   … [Continue reading...]
