My Favorite Roasted Vegetable Recipe

In an effort to be healthier, I have been trying to eat more vegetables. I generally like most vegetables. My husband, on the other hand, is pretty picky.  I grew up eating southern food and he grew up eating midwestern food. Needless to say, we also like to eat different things. Finding something we both like can sometimes be a challenge. However, my husband and I both agreed that I should make this recipe again.


My New Must Have Concealer

I might have a product problem. Okay, I know I do. For someone that doesn't wear very much makeup and usually air dries her hair, I have way too much stuff.  Shamefully, I have recently added to my collection by buying a new concealer. 

I was pretty happy with my old concealer, Benefit Boi-ing Eye Bright Compact. It works really great at covering up my mommy eyes. The Benefit Boi-ing is a pretty thick, giving me great coverage, but I have to rub it in and blend it. As I have gotten older I have realized that wrinkles do happen. They are not a myth. More eye touching equals more wrinkles. Because I am trying not to look 100, I wanted to find a concealer that did not require as much work to blend.


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.
