Mozzarella and Spinach Stuffed Chicken

Image
I was looking through Pintrest and came across a recipe for Pepper Jack and Spinach stuffed chicken. I thought the recipe was super easy, and sounded good except for the fact I don't like pepper jack cheese. So I thought I would give it my own twist.
Here is what you will need
1pkg Tenderized Chicken Breast1pkg Frozen spinach (thawed)1 bag Mozzarella CheeseItalian Bread CrumbsSalt and pepper to taste. Foil Baking dish        


First rinse your chicken, tear off a piece of foil that would cover the chick.
lay out a thin layer of bread crumbs and place the seasoned chicken breast on it.

Place some mozzarella cheese and spinach in the center of the chicken breast. Here why I choose to use the tenderized chicken. You want to pull the edges of the chicken around the spinach and mozzarella, as you are doing this you will pull the aluminum full around it until it forms a ball. Place the chicken in the foil in a baking dish, and bake for 45 minutes. After baking take the chicken out of t…

Surprise Visit, Meet Jingle Bells

Image
We have adopted a new tradition, I have seen these litttle guys every where, and decided it was my turn to hop on the ban wagon. Our elf is brown skin with brown eyes and is a girl.

The girls have named her Jingle Bells, because that sound reminds them so much of Christmas. This tradition is about a family adopting the elf, and the elf watching over the kids and reports what she sees back to santa.

Everymorning the kids will wake to see Jingle Bells doing slilly things. So Keep watch every day to see where she ends up!
This is going to be so much fun!!

Oh How Time Flies

Image
This time 6 years ago I got news that changed my life forever. I say it changed my life forever because it gave me such a different outlook on life. This change made me a better person, and made my strive to not only to do better for myself but for the life I was going to be in care of. The day I found out I was going to be a mom I knew there were going to be sacrifices made, some were going to be easier than others. As I reflect over the past six years I can honestly say I'm proud of myself. I have overcome so many obstacle and found a balance for us. I know this wasn't done alone and wasn't possible without my loving husband. We have been blessed to have each other to lean on for support and guidance, along with our family and a handful of friends. I realized that there is so much more to life, and even more that I still have to learn.    Picturs done by Love Story Photography

Last Minute Fathers Day Gift ::Microsoft Office 2010::

Image
As father’s day quickly approaches, we try to find something we know our Dads don’t have. If your Dad is like mine, they own every tie made, they have all of your baby pictures in special frames, and has a backup for every tool in the house. Why not try and step out of the box this year and surprise your dad with Microsoft Office 2010? Microsoft Office can be used for business or home, and includes Word, Excel, OneNote, Powerpoint, and Outlook. 
If your Dad is a business man or in charge of keeping track of the family finances Excel is a perfect program for him. With excel you can get track of your monthly budget, as well as doing your taxes. There are simple templates that you can follow to help out.

The Mommy Diaries: How I'm Surviving Parenting without Killing Anyone

Image
I was offered the chance to review a copy of “The Mommy Diaries” by humorist Dallas Louis. When I first read the title I had to admit, this is how I often feel at times. So I knew this was going to be a good read. I have two kids three years apart from each other, and I feel like a tornado has hit me at the end of each day. After hearing what the Author Dallas Louis had to go through, I couldn’t imagine having three kids all born within 26 months of each other.

What do you get when you mix a crawling toddler, a screaming baby, and a sudden craving for pickles and ice cream all over again?
Sheer panic, for starters.
After having three children within 26 months (none are twins), Dallas Louis’ life has been a non-stop circus. From nearly getting kicked out of Disneyland after her youngest tackled Cinderella, to being on a first name basis with her family orthopedic surgeon, Louis’ children and home life are a constant source of material – enough to fill her new book,The Mommy Diaries: How …

The Kickstarter Campaign

Image
First time children’s book author Nick Dazé, is in the final days (63 hours to be exact) of his campaign to raise funding to independently publish his children's book Roger Nix President at Age Six.  The story is about kindergartener Roger Nix, an ordinary boy: Roger loves kindergarten, playing make-believe, and hanging out with his imaginary friends (a baby donkey named Jack and a baby elephant named Abe). But when he learns about the plans of Old Man Plee, a perennial presidential candidate, to shut down schools and send kids to work in factories as an austerity measure; Roger decides to run against Old Man Plee as a defender of “school and summer vacation, learning and imagination”. Of course Abe and Jack are there to help him every step of the way. Nick Daze and his incredible Kickstarter campaign(http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/787960356/roger-nix-president-at-six)have already raised nearly $22,000 and only has $8,000 more to go in order to put the book into production. …

The God Box ::Book Review::

Image
When we walk our spiritual path in life, we all find our different ways to communicate and get our thoughts and prayers out. We struggle with everyday stress and feelings of helplessness and anxiety. How do we find the strength inside ourselves to give it up to God and let go?

Mary Lou Quinlan's mother Mary Finlayson found the key inside herself. She found a way that helped her lift her burdens and prayers that she carried with her from day to day. She used her God box as a release of everything she needed to get out. Instead of dwelling on a prayer or something she worried about, she would write it down as if she was releasing this burden off her shoulders.
This books takes us on the journey of Mary Lou Quinlan discovering her mother all over again. She was close with her mother and knew her better then she knew herself. And with the help of her mothers' God Box Mary is able to see that her mother was more then what she was perceived to be. Being the strong unbreakable mother w…

The Game of Life zAPPed Review

Image
I had an opportunity to review Hasbro’s The Game of Life zAPPed edition. Hasbro has found a way to bring a classic game into the world of electronics. The Game ofLife zApped edition allows you to interact with a game in a whole new way. It uses the free Game of Life zAPPed app from the iTunes app store that allows for a whole new interactive experience during the game. 



This game is played as the original; the biggest difference is your Ipad takes the place of the plastic spinner in the middle or the board. Your Ipad takes the place of the plastic spinner that used to sit in the middle of the game board.  You still have the same cars and the  pink and blue pegs that are used as players. With the Ipad app when you lad on a zapp spot you can unlock mini games, funny animations or clips from “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. With more interaction with the game you will never want to stop playing it. This game has been a big hit with my family and I would recommend this to anyone that is lo…

My Girl's New Paradise

Image
My daughters are growing and starting to show their own personalities and I wanted to do something for them that would last longer than the usual toy.  Something that will help them come into their own and really fit their own personality.  So I decided to decorate their rooms to fit their personalities and their likes. From the start I knew this wasn’t going to be an easy task. So I sat the girls down, had them pick several colors they liked, then one color that was their favorite. The favorite color is the color we choose to fit the décor around.  Nikyra being the girly girl she is pinked pink as her favorite color. And not just any pink, it had to be a bubble gum pink.  Janae wanted a dark purple almost the color of a grape.  So my husband and I ventured out to Lows to find the right paint colors we chose Pink-Flutter for Nikyra, and Simply Purple for Janae. It took us a while, because we had to find a color that worked best with the lighting in the girl’s room. Since we use energy …
