Comfort (and a prize!!)

As the weather changes so do our cravings. The temperature is is lowering and we are searching for that one dish that hits the spot. The one dish that is what we fondly call “Comfort Food”!! Instant yum!!

But, in our day to day rush sometimes comfort food takes a little more time than we have to give. Sure you pick something up- but what’s in it??

Solution?? Look for Blake’s all natural foods in the freezer section of your local Target SuperCenter. Need more proof? Stay tuned for the testing/tasting panels views.

But wait!! I mentioned a prize!!!

The hustle and bustle

Absolutely love the Holidays!!! Yes, I know it gets crazy hectic and we wonder what were we thinking !!

And I’m one of those that has found the radio station that is already playing Christmas music!!

But, I’m not going to bypass Thanksgiving!!

Our local Maggiano’s has cooking classes for kids!!! Look for them at your local Maggiano’s , they are worth it!!

Here’s the first photos from the 2 hour event:

Premier screenings

It’s always fun to go to the movies, even better when you get free passes to a premier screening!!!

Now your all on board for that! Sometimes you get passes for a movie and you think,” if it’s good we stay, if not – eh, it was free”.

Then comes along passes for “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them”.

All I can say is WOW!! What a great film!! And if you’re a “Harry Potter” fan….. you’re going g to love it!!

Of course, I took our resident Harry Potter with me!

For the love of art

I could not imagine a world without art- could you??

It doesn’t have to be a Van Gogh or Picasso. A macaroni necklace is art!! Because it is made with love.

All forms of art “fire up” our creative juices!! Without these creative juices we wouldn’t have the everyday products and appliance we can’t live without.

Check your neighborhoods for places that offer different art classes and great prices. Kids and adults love it. The best part is you don’t have to be an expert or someone who’s had classes. Newbies welcome!!!

Over in my area we have “All Fired Up”, check them out at:

They have all kinds of specials for all ages at great prices!!

Gave it a try

Ever watch the morning shows and they have the “Steals and Deals” segments? Well, every time I do I talk myself down from taking advantage of the deal.

But, for some reason I couldn’t turn this one down.. ok it’s because it was part of “Oprah’s Favorite Things”. According to the segment she carries this in her purse wherever she goes.

It sounded so yummy! I’ll give an update once I try it!

Not forgetting Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is such a special time for family and dear friends!! We give “Thanks “for all we have been Blessed with. Both good and bad times have enriched us.

But…. I am a HUGE HUGE fan of the Christmas season!!

So, with that…. it’s time for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the malls and parks!

Sneak peek

I’m not trying to by pass Thanksgiving. On the contrary, we’ve already put the menu together and just need to pick up all the ingredients.

But…….. I couldn’t resist. Hopefully the chocolates make it to myAnnual Holiday Cookie Exchange in a few weeks.Yes, hope springs eternal!!

So the Milano Toasted marshmallow is new this season. And the verdict?? They smell fabulous and taste s’more-like. 

I would call it a light S’more- pretty good!!
