Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes

Pin It
My new recipe for you this week is a dessert.
I love mini desserts, and these strawberry cheesecakes are amazing!
A couple of weeks ago I was in the mood to bake something new.
It was a Monday, and that night we would be having our weekly Family Home Evening, so I had an excuse to make a dessert :)
(If you are unfamiliar with Family Home Evening, you can learn more about it here)
I had found a recipe on Pinterest I wanted to try, but I didn't have a couple of the ingredients, so I decided to just get the basics of a cheesecake and then make my own version.
This is what I came up with. 
I was pretty proud of myself, because these turned out so good!

Jumping Minions

Pin It
We are big Despicable Me fans over here at our house.
One of the things my son loves are of course are the minions :)
So, when I saw this craft over at All for the Boys, I knew we had to make our own version.
One day while my son and I were babystitting we made this craft with the kids.
These are their minions :)

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce

Pin It
So this is one of those recipes I pinned a long time ago on Pinterest, and since starting my goal of trying one new recipe a week, I finally tried this recipe out.
(It also helped that red bell peppers were on sale 3/$1!! Oh yeah.)
I'm so glad I tried this, it's SOOOO yummy!
This sauce is packed full of some amazing flavor!
* Update, I have made this pasta a few more times and tweaked the recipe a little. I also now add baby spinach to sneak in even more veggies. If you want to add a little more protein you can also add some cooked chicken (cut into bite sized pieces) to the noodles and sauce.

Kitchen Utensils and Bubbles

Pin It
Today I have a super fun, simple and FREE Summer activity for you.
You can't go wrong with that!
A couple of weeks ago my son and I were babysitting and it was pretty hot outside.
I didn't want to take the kids to the park, because I knew they wouldn't last long there, but we needed to get outside.
I looked around their kitchen and found a few objects I thought we could use.

Just a quick update....

Pin It
I wanted to give you all a quick update.
The blog was quiet this past week due to the fact that last Friday (Aug. 2)
That's right folks, my little guy is here!
He was 19 days early.
My water broke later in the evening on Thursday, and after 5 1/2 hours he made his big debut.
6 lbs 14 oz and 19 1/4" long.
Thanks for all of your kind comments on my Pregnancy tracker updates!
