Homemade Fortune Cookies

Homemade fortune cookies ready to enjoy

This recipe for homemade fortune cookies takes a little patience but is less difficult than you think. Homemade fortune cookies has been on my bucket list for a long time. And now that I started making them, all I can think about are occasions to make them again. They’d be great for a classroom Valentine’s […]

Ted’s Montana Grill Lunch Menu Review

Ted's Montana Grill Canyon Creek Burger

When I was invited to enjoy lunch at Ted’s Montana Grill and enjoy lunch on them, you know I couldn’t wait to bring Little Miss and check out their Bolingbrook location.

Slimming Hairstyles To Make Your Face Look Thinner

Create a high bun for a slimming hairstyles idea

It’s winter so I may not have been following the diet and exercise plan I mean to for awhile. I’ve gained a little weight and even worse (for me), I’ve lost the tone I had, and that can be depressing and demotivating. Nope, instead I’m focusing on finding slimming hairstyles to give myself a self-confidence boost […]

Ninja Coffee Bar Review {Plus Two Minute Mocha}

Enjoying the Ninja coffee bar

My Ninja Coffee Bar review contains my own opinions. Ninja Kitchen provided me with a unit for review, but I was not otherwise compensated. December was an ugly month for me. I was working almost nonstop, and that doesn’t count the obligations to family and friends (which I am happy to have) getting ready for […]
