Brooklyn Smorgasburg


This food event has been on my bucket list for a long time, was amazing, loved everything we had. I didn't get a picture of the wonderful ice cream sandwich I had - had a homemade cookie with salted caramel and coffee ice cream. We also got iced coffee from 2 different vendors, Kyle had stuffed octopus, took home salted caramel peanut butter from another vendor, got a slice of oreo red velvet cake for home. If you're ever in the area you have to check this place out, can't wait to go back.

 Smore bars and bacon maple cupcakes from Butter and Scotch

 Gorgeous view of the city with the perfect weather today

 Scotch egg, haven't had one since London and loved this one, can't wait to try another version they have on our next visit. This was lamb with a yogurt sauce.

 Shrimp teriyaki balls, so good,

 Hibiscus mint soda, so good

 Soup dumplings, have been craving these for so long and so glad I saw a vendor with them.

 Ramen noodle burger, the longest line of the day, but worth it

 Hawaii Poke, one of our favorite foods from Hawaii so glad to find some locally. They fly in the fish from Honolulu

Cinnamon Apple Bagel French Toast


I used mini bagels I picked up from our local bagel shop for this recipe. I was full with just 1 mini bagel. Since we had company this was a perfect quick breakfast that looked a little fancy also. Here's the link to the recipe

Italian Sausage Tortellini

 I used ground sausage for this because the supermarket I went to was out of regular italian sausage. I also added some carrots to my sauce since I had some to use up from another recipe. This was a wonderful dinner and I even had leftovers to take to work the next day for lunch. Here's the link to the recipe

Garlic Parm Chicken Stuffed Shells


I love Italian food and this was a great way to use chicken I took out for dinner since the weather got cooler and rainy so wasn't really grilling weather. I picked up some fresh mozzarella for this. The sauce on this was so amazing. Here's the link to the recipe

Greek Salad

I love that the weather is getting warmer and making different salads to go with dinner that we grill. This was a great salad and I love the dressing that was included. Greek salad is one of my favorite salads and I love olives so had to make this salad as one of the first for grilling season. Here's the link to the recipe

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Balls


I saw these on The Chew which I always record since I work during the day. These only took minutes to put together and are a great snack when you are craving something sweet. I got the chocolate chips at Trader Joe's and I love the use of the oats in these. These are a great mid morning snack while I'm at work and can't really sit down and eat and need something quick to eat while doing my tasks. Here's the link to the recipe

My Scrap Room





I love my scraproom. My comfy chair was a great online find and the shelves I got on sale from Target and Michaels. I also have a closet with shelving to store other items. The birdcage is a decal I got from Pier 1 Imports. Princess usually keeps me company relaxing on the chair while I scrap.
