Taking a Vacation to Move...

Good Morning everyone! 
I wanted to give you all a heads up that I will be taking a vacation/break from blogging for a few weeks while we finish getting settled into our new home. Life with moving and two toddlers really has my hands full and the moments I do have free I need to spend that precious time with my kiddos and my husband. I hope you all have a great rest of the month and I hope to see you back in a few weeks!

Take care,

Cheesy Ravioli Recipe

Today I am sharing this delicious and VERY simple Cheesy Ravioli Recipe. This is great for those nights that you need to cook dinner but must do it fast!

1 package refrigerated raviolis (about 9oz)
1/2 Red bell pepper chopped small
4oz Chives and Onion cream cheese
1/2 cup frozen peas
Parmesan cheese to top

Cook raviolis as directed on package, drain pasta reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
Cook peppers in a skillet on medium heat for about 5 minutes, add peas and cook another 2-3 minutes. 
Add 1/3 cups of the reserved water to the pan and add the cream cheese.
Constantly stir until the cheese is melted, if the sauce is too thick add more of the water. Let simmer 2-3 minutes then pour over the raviolis and ENJOY!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Kraft Fresh Take Cheese & Breadcrumb Mix

I wanted to share with you today my latest find.. I discovered these Kraft Fresh Take Cheese and Breadcrumb mixes at the grocery store and had to try it and I must say I loved it and will be buying them again!

The process is simple, easy and fast, which with two toddlers, is the kind of dinners I like to make. So all you need is chicken breast, but you can use fish, chicken thighs etc. and the Mix. 

The directions are easy. Open the package of the mix and tear down the center between the cheese and breadcrumbs, mix the two together, then take your meat and you can either wet it with water or dip it into a beaten egg then dip the meat into the breadcrumb mix. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 28-30 minutes at 375 degrees. Then ENJOY!

The chicken turned out so delicious and the whole family enjoyed it. I will for sure be trying this again soon and in the other flavors as well!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Making My First Minky Blanket

I am so beyond excited to share with you all today my first ever minky blanket that I made.

I wanted to have a blanket made for our daughters big girl bedroom using this fabric that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. Once I received the fabric in the mail, I washed it and laid it all out on the floor to see how big I could get it... I then realized I could probably sew it on my own since it was a basic triangle. So I turned to Pinterest of course to find some tips on working with minky fabric and I was even more excited when I realized it was totally do-able for me. 

I purchased 2 yards of each of the fabrics and laid them on the floor with the right sides facing together. 

I trimmed the minky fabric to match the size of the cotton fabric since it was a lot wider.

Then I went around and pinned the two together like crazy.. about every 1.5-2 inches

Next I sewed a seam around the entire blanket leaving a 5 inch opening for turning the blanket right side out.
Once I turned the blanket out I then pinned the blanket again every 1.5-2 inches because I wanted to make sure it was held together well. Lastly to finish it off I did a stitch around the entire blanket. 

In the end I literally jumped up and down for joy that it actually turned out so well! I am beyond excited how it looks and I cannot wait to see it in our daughters big girl bedroom and hopefully be able to make more of these blankets again soon!
