Cheese Cake

This Cheese Cake is the kind my Son-in-Law wants hidden at the back of the Fridge. You have to pass a strict worthiness test to be eligible to get a piece of this one...and it is easy (coz that's all I know) and no-bake (even better)....the crust is yummy too..plate licking even..just saying.

Buffs Cheesecake

1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese softened
¼ C lemon juice more or less to taste
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 8 oz tub cool whip
                                                                                       1 tsp vanilla (optional)
Graham cracker/ginger snap crust
1 can of cherry pie filling or favorite fruit topping

My crust is made with 1/2 sleeve graham crackers crushed  and equal amount of ginger snap cookies crushed, then pour 1 stick(1/2 C) of melted butter  on top, and mix well. Then press crumbs into the bottom of a 9x13 pan & freeze for 10 minutes while you make the cheesecake.
Soften cream cheese in microwave or room temperature, then add lemon juice & beat till smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk and beat till smooth. Then add cool whip till smooth and pour into crust and chill if you can wait that long. Pour cherry or blueberry or fresh raspberry' s or strawberry's (whatever your favorite may be) on top.
Sets pretty quick.  Tastes great the next day if there's any left by then.

"Pin"spiration: Masking Tape Speedway

This was one of my very first pins on Pinterest.  I thought it looked so cool and I knew that my boys would absolutely LOVE something like this!  (I've tried to find the original source but never could.  :/ )

Thursday was Landon's 5th birthday so I thought it would be the perfect time to do it. It was such an easy project and very cheap.  I used one roll of masking tape that I got for $1.99 at Target.  On Wednesday night my husband made the tracks (and I "decorated" it with signs & trees from our train sets) so that it would be a surprise on Landon's birthday morning.  He (and the rest of my kids!) loved it and played with it all weekend long.

Chocolate Truffle Bundt Cake

Sooo Yummy but sooo Easy.....Chocolate Truffle Bundt Cake, just fill the center with the excess warm frosting. Then fill your mouth with a deliciously warm chocolate rush with  a large scoop of ice cream or cool whip on top.The day after when it is cold, just zap it in the microwave for 10 seconds & back comes the fresh baked chocolate rush again. Always a favorite at work or family event's. Sorry I am a Chocoholic enabler, see recipe below.
Whip up & pour into your bundt pan, it's prettier this way.
Cool till it is warm & easy to handle

Chocolate Truffle cake

1 Chocolate cake mix
1 small pkt. instant Choc. Pudding
1 bag chocolate chips
16 oz Sour cream
5 eggs
1 stick melted butter
1 tub of Pillsbury chocolate frosting heated (remove foil lid)

Mix by hand (it is a rather heavy dough):
Mix dry ingredients.  
Add chocolate chips to dry ingredients so they won't sink to the bottom.
Add sour cream, eggs, and butter. Mix well. Pour in greased Bundt Pan.
Cook 50 min.  350 deg.

When still a little warm, Pour 1 tub chocolate frosting that has been
heated in microwave for approx. 30-40 seconds.

Baptism Gift Ideas

Leather Scripture Bag, CTR Bubble Ring, and Princess suckers complete the gift.

Our precious grandchildren are becoming little adults all of a sudden, and we wanted the perfect Baptism gift ideas. I started reading the little blue Book of Mormons and highlighting my favorite parts, especially about the Savior. Then when I was finished, I wrote my testimony in the front cover each time I completed one. Then a fun trip to "Deseret Book", helped me find the latest gifts to add for my grand daughter, who recently was baptized. There were so many fun choices, but knowing her personality made it easy to choose. When they grow older we hope they truly realize how special they are to us and how much we enjoy their company.

Perpetual Birthday Calendar w/Printable

I love to make cards and send them out to family and friends for their birthdays and other special occasions.  But I'm the first to admit that despite my best intentions, I don't always get them sent out on time.  :)  One of my goals for this year is to do better at this.  To help me, I decided to make myself a perpetual calendar.  This is such an easy and inexpensive project and would even make a great gift for that person who has everything.

All you'll need is a 4x6 picture frame and some white cardstock.  I picked up my clear frame from Dollar Tree.  It's actually magnetic (perfect for a refrigerator!) but since my kitchen is stainless steel I picked up a frame holder for a buck while I was there. Then just print the calendar pages (you can print two 4x6 to a page) cut 'em out and slip 'em in the frame.  Easy peasy! :)

Just make sure you display it somewhere you'll see it often!  You could also tie some cute ribbon on it and hang it up.

Cricut Cards

I recently got the Create a Critter cartridge for my Cricut and I had so much fun using it to make some cute and easy birthday cards.  I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the backgrounds, added some ribbon, and cut out the critters and attached them with foam tape to give them some dimension.

I think the cute little owl is my favorite. :)

Birthday Pancakes

To make a birthday breakfast super special, all you need are two simple things: pancake mix and a squeeze bottle (I got mine at Walmart for less than a buck; an empty ketchup bottle works well, too!).

Just mix up the batter (making it as smooth as possible) and pour into the squeeze bottle. Then "draw" batter images onto the pan and there you have it -- a perfectly cute (and easy!) breakfast. For Cailyn's birthday today Daddy made her a cake, some balloons and an "8". She was so excited and it was a great way to start her birthday.
