No Bake S'Mores Cheesecake Bars Recipe - RecipeGirl

My son Brooks ( made these No Bake S’Mores Cheesecake Bars, and they are totally and completely addicting!!!!  You don’t have to turn on the oven at all for these unless you want to toast the marshmallows a tiny bit.

Piggy Bank

Speaking of my kiddo… he just graduated from 8th grade and received this gift from his Grandma:  it’s a Car Savings Piggy Bank!  She started things off and put some cash inside for him, but now he has two years until he turns 16 and will be able to “help” in the purchase of a car.  Isn’t this a cute idea? 🙂


This is a pretty funny read >> I Went Paleo and Now I Hate Everything.


Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer

Since our puppy joined our family last Christmas, our very light carpet has taken quite a beating.  I thought for sure we were going to have to replace it completely.  I was going to just get the carpets cleaned, but honestly it’s kind of a hassle.  So instead, I invested in a moderately priced steam cleaner:  the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Power Washer.  I was totally taking a chance by reading the reviews, etc… but I’m so glad I bought it!!  I invested 3 hours of my time to thoroughly steam clean our family room carpet with my new gadget, and the carpet seriously looks brand new.  I wish I had taken before/after photos because the results were remarkable.  The amount of dirt that ended up in the water tank was shocking.  It’s work… but it’s cheaper than hiring someone to do it.  Next up is our stairs- they’re a mess too!

    Oh my gosh!  I saw those Creme Brulee Almonds too!  I resisted the purchase though.  Did you try them?  Must I go back and get them?? And by the way..your son rocks!  I can’t wait for my kids to start making me treats like that 🙂

    I so enjoyed the cookie story even went to the origin of the cookie recipe.
    I have been on diets since I was 4 years old and sometimes you just need a good laugh and from what I have heard over the years is that the healthiest people eat from all food groups.  They just don’t eat processed food or sit around very often.
    Thanks for sharing this one!
