Buffalo Chicken Wraps


I’ve gotten to where I really like buffalo chicken…hot wings (boneless) – not sure why, maybe my taste is changing??

I saw this on Pinterest thought it would be fun and easy.

I put my chicken in the crockpot before I left work work (frozen bag), left it on low for about 8  hrs.  When I got home I shredded it, added Texas Pete hotsausce – and put it in a gallon ziplock bag (too cool, and for easy access)

I set up a little assembly station – I added cheese to mine, and I also used egg roll wrappers instead of won tons (bigger).

For serving – I used ranch dip….and DUNKED away!!!

These were really good, and there are many many possiblities!!!

Crockpot Mashed potatoes


I LOVE mashed potatoes, and thought this would be pretty easy – and it was.  I did change some things though.


I cubed up my potatoes (put them in the crockpot raw) I used water instead of chicken stock (I didn’t have any).  I did cook these on high for about 4 or so hours, but I think if I was working that day, I would do them on low for longer hours.  I think it would be the same🙂

I also didn’t have cream cheese :-(  so I did not add that.

5 lbs of potatos (cubed)….smallish pieces

1 1/2 cups of water

salt to taste

cook – 4 hours on high


Add in’s

sour cream – I used a half of a container

CHEESE – cheeder/colby – as much as you like mmmmmmm

Bacon (because bacon makes everything better)

These were good and tasty….very very easy to do.  I WILL be doing this again!

White Queso Dip


Oh….you know what I’m talking about – that yummy cheesy goodness you get at a Mexican resturant!!  I love the stuff, I always order some to go with those crispy chips they give you.  It is SO good. 

I saw this, and though could it be, will it be just like what we are served?!?!?

Oh yes my friends…it is – it’s just like what you get at the resturant.  It is smooth and yummy…..and can be reheated!!!

  • 1 1/4 lb block White American Cheese (Land O’Lakes brand preferred), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup diced green chiles
  • 2 pickled jalapenos, chopped
  • 1 ounce pickled jalapeno juice
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • pinch of cumin (optional)

Toss all ingredients into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stopping to stir after every minute. The mixture might seem watery during the first few stirs, but should come together as a nice runny dip after all the cheese is melted.

Serve immediately as a dip with tortilla chips or as a sauce over your favorite Mexican dish.

*Recipe Note: White American cheese is found at most deli counters in your local grocery store.

*Reheat Instructions: Store any leftover cheese dip in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until creamy and hot.


That special day!


It’s been a while – it’s been a little hectic my way.

For Valentine’s day – I did something a little special for my hubby.  I had been planning on it for a while, but waiting for the right time.  I thought about Christmas…but what better day than that LOVE day right?

I took a deck of playing cards – printed out reasons or things why I loved him.  I laminated the sayings (because I’m the laminating queen).  I printed out our picture a serious on the front and a goofy fun one on the back.  And wrote ” a few things I love bout you”.

I was so excited about this – I put a lot of thought into it, added some funnies in there as well because he and I like to joke and kid too.

This was a FUN special project.  He really really liked it.


B’Que Bacon Sliders


I first saw this on Pioneer Woman (love her blog), and made these a while back.  I made them again last night – they are very easy, and very yummy.

I did change it a little….but not much.  For best results I used my broiler pan, which she does as well……LOVE THESE!!  SO many possiblities!

  • 2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Pepper Or Other Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce  
  • Liquid smoke
  • 8 strips Thin/regular Bacon (a Pack or 2)
  • ¼ cups Barbecue Sauce
  • 8 slices (shavings) Cheese: Cheddar, Jack, Etc. (I used colby pepperjack)
  • 8 whole Dinner Rolls (or Slider Rolls)


Combine meat with all seasoning ingredients. Knead with hands to combine. Form into small-to-medium sized balls.

Cut slices of bacon in half lengthwise. Wrap one half around ball of hamburger, pulling slightly to keep taut. Smooth to secure seam. Repeat with other half of bacon, ending seam in the same place.

Place patties, bacon seam side down, on a baking pan with a drip tray sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Press gently on each patty to flatten as much as you can without squeezing meat out of the edges. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes to firm.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.    Preheat to 350

Brush each patty liberally with barbecue sauce. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bacon is cooked to your specifications.

Remove from oven and lay a cheese shaving on each patty. Serve on a roll with your choice of toppings/condiments.



I have really been loving all the cute little girl hair styles that I have been finding around the pinning world……

SO cute for Valentine’s Day!  So easy to do – you can easily add a ribbon to it!!  You just make your pony tail….flip the hair back through – divide.  You can braid or not braid – your choice!!



I love shoes, but what doesn’t right??  I really do have an obession……it’s bad – I have a LOT of shoes!  I just cannot help myself :-)  My hubby actually got me these…and I love them.

I feel a little on the sassy side when I wear them😉
