EZ Chicken Parmigiana

EZ Chicken Parmigiana So we all know I'm not Italian lol However, I love Italian food. I mean, who doesn't, right? I haven't been much of a cook in the past, more of a baker, but I want to expand my horizons. I saw a really good recipe for this Chicken Parmesan a few years ago and I have adapted it to my taste Since we are empty nesters, I now cook for two on a regular basis. And by regular basis, maybe once a week HA! Adjust the recipe as you see fit. You will need  2 boneless chicken breasts about a cup of breadcrumbs one jar of your favorite marinara sauce 24 oz. ( I prefer this one)  Bertolli's a cup of grated parmesan 4 slices of swiss cheese foil butter or olive oil baking pan Preheat oven to 450 degrees Pour 1/2 jar of marinara sauce into shallow bowl and stir in the grated Parmesan and breadcrumbs. Mix thoroughly.  Cut chicken breasts (butterfly) in half to make them thinner. Coat chicken breasts with olive oil or melted butter. Dip chicken breasts into marinara

DIY Eyebrow Lamination

Easy DIY Eyebrow Lamination Happy Sunday friends. Since I've been recovering from a recent medical ailment, I have been trying out different products and I will share with you my results.  Also, you can see video of my reviews on my youtube channel and IG reels.  You can find the links over on the top right there>>>>>> What is eyebrow lamination, you ask? It is like a perm for your eyebrows. If you have unruly eyebrows, like I do, this is the process for you.  It will make your eyebrows lay flat and point upwards so you can better style them.  I advise to do this process first, then go have your eyebrows shaped by a professional.  So this is the product I used: Eyebrow Lamination Kit The kit comes with everything you need and easy to follow instructions. It is very inexpensive vs. going to a salon. I have had this done at a salon when they were having a special, and I think I paid around $60. You can see the full video here: Basically you apply the product to your

Super Easy Fall Wreath (Pottery Barn Knockoff)

Hello friends, I hope you are starting to cool off wherever you live. Here in Texas, it's still super hot. Nevertheless, it is now September and by golly I am going to MAKE it feel like FALL, at least inside.  Now, being a full time working woman, I rarely have time to craft anymore, but lately I've been feeling inspired.  I was on the Pottery Barn website and I spotted this super cute wreath. But then I saw the price! Yikes! This gorgeous wreath is about $149 and you can find it here  if you want to spend that kind of money. I wanted to recreate it. If you are like me, and you like simple crafts, then this is the craft for you. Ain't nobody got time for all that jazz, lol and by jazz, I mean complicated! So here is the list of items you will need: 18 inch grapevine wreath (found at walmart) 1 cream colored flower stem (found at Dollar Tree) 4 cream colored berry sprays (Dollar Tree) 1 mini berry garland (Dollar Tree) 4 cream colored mini craft pumpkins (Dollar Tree) Glue g

Date Night-French Cooking Class

Date Night-French Cooking Class Happy weekend everyone! We were busy kicking off my birthday weekend! Woohoo!! And even though I am getting older, I like to go out and celebrate in style! My husband and I made a promise to go out every month and try out fun things together.  Last month, we went to a Murder Mystery Theatre Dinner. I'll tell  you guys about that at a later time.  Yesterday we went to a French cooking class in Dallas at Sur La Table.  The meal we prepared was ratatouille, a French torte and a raspberry souffle. As part of the class, you receive a 10% discount on any purchase.  You can bet I took advantage of that :) Anywho, both  my husband and I were impressed with the layout of the kitchen, the chef and the meal itself.  You can BYOB (we forgot :/) and you will work in a team of 4.  However, our table only had the two of us as the other pair cancelled at the last minute.  The chef explains everything step by step and underneath your table you have trays with all the

Weekend Spring Trip-Galveston, Texas

It's been a minute! But I am back. So much has happened in my life from the last blog post.  I have to tell you guys all about my move to my small cottage home, my journey from living a life in an unhappy marriage, the dating scene and finally finding love.  But for now, here is what happened on my impromptu weekend trip.  I needed to get away really bad. From working WAY too much at my new job (that I landed during COVID) to the regular stresses of being a working mom to a high school senior (how did THAT happen?!) You guys, I NEEDED this trip!  So I booked my hotel on the Hilton Honors app because I am a member :) then we decided to head out early on a Friday morning. It was an easy 5 hour drive from Dallas.  I mainly wanted to visit this cute little store on the Strand called The Witchery It has such a good vibe y'all. You must check it out. They had some crystals, books, and even a couple of rooms for psychic readings. Whether you are into that or not, you have to admit it

Finding Your Place in this World

Hello friends! Today I am going to share a story that involves my son. With his permission I will share what he has been through in the public school system and how home schooling and finding his place in the world has changed his life.  My son, Aaron, is an actor. Ever since he was a child, he loved entertaining others. I sent my son off to kindergarten an excited and happy boy, but slowly I started to notice a difference in his attitude.  He would come home saying to me that he was "stupid" or "slow". He related to me how he was often doing his work at recess while the other kids played. This, of course, broke my heart. After meeting with his teacher, and year after year, the same thing would happen, his father and decided to home school him. This was not an easy decision as I worked a demanding career outside the home. But we made it work. We slowly started to see a change in our son. He was reading and enjoying learning again. I was getting my son back!
