Monster Cookie Recipe

A few weeks ago, I was at Whole Foods looking for a delicious treat to pack in my lunch.  In the bakery some really big cookies caught my eye. First I thought about getting the chocolate chip cookies, but then I saw the Monster Cookies. I really love oatmeal cookies and these have chocolate chips in them instead of raisins! How could it get any better? Needless to say the Monster Cookies were a big hit. I loved the cookies so much I decided to try and make them myself.


Favorite Facial Serum

Earlier this year, I wrote about my experience using the Clinique Redness Solutions. I am still loving all of the products and plan to continue using them.  My face is significantly less red after staying on the system.  To improve my skins texture and help fade acne scars, I decided to include a serum in my daily routine.


Bacon Vegetable Quiche

I love to keep my refrigerator stocked with fresh vegetables.  It makes whipping up a healthy dinner or snack a breeze. I made this lovely quiche with the vegetables I had on hand.  At the request of my husband, I threw in some bacon and swiss cheese too.

Normally, I avoid turning the oven on during the summer because it is just too hot. In order to keep from heating the house up too much, I cooked this in the morning on one of the cooler days of the week.

The quiche turned out delicious. My husband really liked it, even with all of the vegetables!


No Roll Egg Roll

With temperatures rising to almost 100 degrees, the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven or stand over a hot stove for a long time. This recipe can be made in under 30 minutes and only requires the stove top.


Clinique Redness Solutions

I have never had great skin. I was that kid that started breaking out in 5th grade.

As I have gotten older my skin started to turn red. There seems to be nothing I can do to reduce the redness. I have tried many products in the past with no luck. I eventually just decided to give up.

Recently, I decided I was going to try and reduce my redness again.

I started by doing a lot of research on redness reducing skin products. Ultimately, I decided to try Clinique. I chose Clinique because of the price as well as the number of positive reviews.


Hello Fresh Review

I have seen so many advertisements for meal delivery services. Hello Fresh, Plated, and Blue Apron to name a few.

As a stay at home mom for a four month old, I don't have as much time as I would like. Getting in a shower is hard enough some days, much less planning meals and going to the store.

In my Martha Stewart Living, I had a coupon for Hello Fresh. I decided to give it a try.


Diaper Bag Essentials

Taking a baby out requires carrying around a lot of gear. What I pack varies depending on the outing. However, there are some items that I consider to be essential diaper bag items.
