A Pampered Birthday Party...

Yesterday we celebrated Israel's 2nd birthday, which is actually today. We had a blast at Westmonte Park in Altamonte. Great weather, a few friends, lots of food/treats to keep everyone happy in the park made for an awesome day!
It is such a blessing to be able to celebrate with him and our children who are all healthy and thriving. It really makes me appreciate life, when I read stories of others who have a child(ren) the same age going through medical issues. A friend of a friend has a 2 year old who was just diagnosed with Leukemia and is undergoing radiation. God has been so good to us, and he will continue to be. Please pray for them, the Lord knows just who I m speaking of no names necessary.

On a lighter note, I didn't realize how hard it could be to throw a two year olds party. Thankfully, with my new Pampered Chef business and tools, the only hard part was keeping the birthday boy out of all the goodies/snacks.

2 of 3 layers in Brownie Pan
cookie dough, oreos, & brownie batter

Finished products no cutting and lots of crunchy gooey brownies
I had to make a few oreo stuffed Chocolate chip good!

Used our Fruit & Cheese cutter for the pineapple chunks and the large Collapsible bowl for fruit and dip tray!

The dip was a Pampered Chef classic, Fluffy Peanut butter dip...learned that one needs to be on ice or it breaks down. Its really easy to make too. It calls for:
  • 1/3 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup whipped topping
  • 1 6-8 ounce cup of Vanilla yogurt
Whisk the Peanut Butter and Yogurt til blended, then fold the whipped topping in.

Any of you long time Pampered Chef fans will appreciate the Chillzane...
 Overall, a good time was had by all! Here's one everyone including me will enjoy!
The Birthday Cake!
Tell me who's face do you see?

Batter Bowl Elmo Cake
Well since I know your having a hard time figuring it out I'll tell you.
Its supposed to be Elmo. 
Can you say "Pintrest Fail"! 
I never said I was perfect, but my kitchen is pampered with lots of tools to make life easy.
Next time, it'll be better, not! 
Til next time...Be Blessed!

Not perfect...

Trying to be perfect in an imperfect world is insanity. Some days it takes everything in me to "do something". I don't know about you, but I was trying to do everything right, and please everyone and that took a huge toll on my sanity.

I'm so thankful that I don't have to take on the weight of trying to be perfect.
 I can do all things through Christ. 1 Phil. 4:13

In this venture of having a home-based business with Pampered Chef, I am going to do all things to glorify the Father, and not strive to be perfect. Everything I do won't be right, or perfect, but it will honor God.

I am so excited about whats in store, and I know it won't necessarily be easy, but it will be worth while.

Now that I've said that, in total transparency, I don't understand some things about business and people. Through the years I have supported various friends and friends of friends and now it seems like not many of them are as supportive. I know Pampered Chef, isn't a business for everyone, but doesn't every one eat? Don't most people cook at home? And if they don't, why not?

In my quest for health and financial freedom, it only makes sense to eat at home. Growing my own foods is my goal. In the meantime, I am going to bring my family closer by cooking and eating more homemade foods, and help others do the same.

The kids love helping out in the kitchen, and I appreciate the help. One day their spouses, will appreciate the lessons and love for cooking they all have.

Now that I'm done that rant!
Where do you stand?
Are you trying to be perfect like I was
Do you prepare homemade meals?
Do your grow your own foods?

Help me get my garden started, I know how to grow people, but plants and vegetables, not so much!

Now she's Kooking!!!!!

I haven't posted much about cooking since this blogs inception! But you know GOD had a plan. When I started writing, I never thought in a million years I'd have my own Pampered Chef business. That I'd be "kooking" for a living. But in the grand scheme of things HE knew where he would take me. And here I am.
This is Three Cheese Garden Pizza, made using whole wheat dough, mozzerella, parmesan, and colby-jack cheeses, tomatoes, zuchinni, onion, mushrooms, garlic and a little olive oil. Talk about simple and delish! My word you've not lived till you tried this pizza. Pampered Chef makes it super easy to make using the Bar Pan, Simpler Slicer, Garlic Press, Cheese Grater, BBQ Baster, Santoku knife, and Cutting board. Don't believe me try it out and see.
