Is everyone ready for Halloween tomorrow? There's this huge uproar currently because tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy, rainy day and people are wanting to switch Halloween to Friday. I mean when I was younger and it rained on Halloween my dad would drive me house to house - you just manage. Don't be changin the date of Halloween people!

I've gotten all my bags of candy ready in this cute little black Halloween bucket. Funny thing is...nobody ever visits me, I am in an apartment complex. Looks l...

Anyone sick yet, like me? This major change in weather has my immune system face planted into the ground! While trying to get in all my vitamins and veggies over the weekend, as I binged watched movies **motionless**on the couch, I was craving something hearty. And this whole roasted chicken was, IT. I am never too pumped working with whole chickens because it skeeves me out just a tad but really, it's one of the easiest things to cook and so simple! 

I wash and pat the chicken dry before wo...

What is it about soup in the colder, rainy days? Because I don't know about you but soup never actually "fills" me up but boy do I craaaaave a bowl of hot steamy, gut warming soup as soon as my hands start to become cold on the reg. And what better than a classic french onion soup.

I NEVER used to like onions, maybe it was just a "kid" thing. My parents would put fried onions in everything imaginable when I was just a child and I always thought they were icky! I was around late teens when I start...

Ahh, hello October.

What does one eat during the month of October? Pumpkin EVERYTHING. And with these crisp mornings rolling in, what pairs well with a nice cup of hot coffee or tea? Scones.

Scones are so underrated. They are cute, flaky, rustic and you can do anything you want with them -and by that I mean, the flavors and toppings are just about endless. Scones are the ultimate morning biscuits, they are known for their dry-ness so you don't even have to worry about over baking. So to me, this i...

guys, it's giant pretzels and mugs of beer season. 

& what I really mean by that is, Oktoberfest is happening! Oktoberfest is a 16 day festival running from late September to first week of October. With so many things happening like music, games, amusement rides, beer tents....and so many things to eat like smoked sausages, roasted meats, sauerkraut, cabbage, and of course...pretzels.

Oktoberfest officially starts when the Mayor taps the keg and its then ON. With a 16 day drink fest there are...

Chicken Parm is just one of those things you can't say no to, but you can easily destroy when making from scratch...in my opinion. The sauce has to be just right...the chicken has to be super seasoned and the right thickness and cooked to a crisp, the mozzarella has to be super fresh and gooey, the pasta can't be over cooked.... But when you throw chicken parm ingredients onto a pizza it's like all the rules are out the door and it just is instantly GOOD. or is that just me?

Now this isn't j...

The cheesecake bars that forever changed my LIFE!

So...here is THE story.

So, I was making these bars for a "reveal party" and BOY WAS I EXCITED! My boyfriend (Tyler)'s - sister (Jackie) is pregnant, having her second child, and this party was for her! Tyler told me about this party 3 weeks in advance, it was to take place this past Friday (Aug 30th) at her house. He told me to pick any dessert that I wanted and of course I pick cheesecake! How can you go wrong?

Jackie and her husband and their lit...
