Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

There is only one word to describe this amazing concoction….. YUMMY!!!!! If you ask my husband what he wanta for dessert, it is either a cobbler of some kind or this yummy pie! It is very easy and only requires a few ingredients.

Heres what you will need:

Graham Cracker Crust
2 bars of cream cheese
1 12 oz can of sweetend condensed milk
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 can of cherry pie filling

Mix up cream cheeae, sweetened milk and lemon juice. You will want a very smooth mixture. Pour the cream cheese mixture in your graham cracker crust. Put into the fridge to firm up. When you are ready to serve the pie, pour your can of cherry filling on top of the pie. Cut your slices and serve!

I hope you find this pie to be as yummy as we find it to be!  Now  please do not blame me if you can not stop eating this 🙂


What are your Easter Traditions?

Easter is very important in our household. We are a Christian Family and Easter to us is so much more than the Easter Bunny. We love for our kids to have the memories that they will have for an entire lifetime. We make sure that our children understand that we celebrate Easter because Jesus rose from the dead and is alive. We do allow our children to believe in the Easter Bunny, my husband and I both were raised with the Easter Bunny as well.

We usually wake the kids up and have their baskets and candy on the table. This year we are totally not having any fake Easter grass. Truth be told, I hate that stuff. For one, it totally does not look anything like grass and it is just plain messy! This year we opted for pre made baskets and we are adding extra goodies to their baskets. I love having little treats for the kids. It is always a treat for me to see the kids be super excited for Easter Morning.

We usually go to church Easter Morning. It is so refreshing to hear an Easter Service. In the past, we served on Easter Sunday with our church and helped with a massive Easter Egg hunt. It was always so much fun! We will also have a great Easter Dinner.
What wilk you be serving this year for Easter? We usually have ham, mashed potatoes, corn, carrots, rolls, maybe some stuffing too. I love cooking a big dinner. It always means you will have a great meal for leftovers!

I just want to take this time to say I hope you have a fablous Easter and make memories doing whatever it is you do!

Garden Planting

I absolutely love garden time! I got my garden love from my grandparents. They always had fresh vegetables growing up and it made such an impression. Every Febuary, I get the itch. I have to start getting the dirt ready, planr and seeds and my containers. I do container gardening. With moving often, it is just smarter to grow my vegetables in containers.

This year we are growing alot of wonderful things! We are growing Tomatos, Squash, Cucumbers, Carrots, Onions, Brocolli, and lots of awesome herbs.
I am very excited because my garden is growing already and I got a few blooms already on my tomato plant! I love to see hard work grow! It is absolutely amazing. We are growing lettuce as well. Just the other night, we had home made Mexican Pizza, we like to put sour cream and sometimes lettuce on it. My daughter and youngest son are not fond of lettuce. They were the most eager to try it. It is amazing when your children are very excited to see something grow and to see gptheir hard work bloom. We ate our amazing lettuce, and it seriously was amazing!

Do you like to garden? Is your thumb green or black?

Credit Karma… Check your credit for free???

I will admit, I was a little skeptical about a site where you can keep tabs on your credit report for free. I first saw  Credit Karms on a t.v. commercial. I just thought it was another site like the free credit site. I got my new magazine of All You and they have an article about saving money, which rocks, and it mentions Credit Karma. This led credibility for me because my favorite magazine was saying it was a good site to use.

I signed up for the Credit Karma site. It was very easy to sign up. I entered my personal information, and it asked some personal credit questions. Once I passed the questions, it promptly took me to  my credit score and credit history. I will admit, my history is not pretty at all. I am actively working to get it cleaned up and pretty, it just takes work.

I would recommend Credit Karma to all my friends. It is a great site to keep up with your credit. If you can do it for free, there is no reason to pay any “free” site for it. If there is a catch, I have not found it!

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

The title should totally,make you drool! This is Mr. Smiths favorite dinner, lunch and cold breakfast! It is very easy to make and it ismyummy….. I am going to say that alot!

Here is what you need:
Potatos… I used 5 large russet potatos- peeled, cubed and boiled.
Mayo 1cup or more
Sour Cream about 1 1/2 cup
Cooked bacon bits- 2 strips cooked and crumbled or cut
Shreded cheese about a good handful! 🙂
Green onion about 2 cut up, i actually use kitchen sheers to cut this.

Easy peasy instructions to follow now..
Mix potatos that have been cooled, mayo, sour cream, cheese, bacon and green onion together in a bowl. Let the salad have some time to merry with the flavors. This will help you to have the absolute best flavor!

Again, this is very easy and it is absolutely yummy! Sorry for the measurements, I am very much a taste and season as you go cook.

Happy eating!
