Samsung ST150F Point and Shoot Camera

$120, goodbye $1000+ DSLR on my wishlist.

Why buy a camera that costs more than some cars when you can have the best and easiest way to snap great pics at a fraction of the cost? #SmartShopping

*I’m loving the WiFi feature!!!




Homemade Frapp’s in a Frapptaculous New Blender!

It’s no exaggeration, I’m in love with Starbucks Frappuccinos. It’s a family trait…


Paige and Mom, Hyatt Regency St. Louis Riverfront October 2010

This morning I tried out the ice crushing feature on my new blender. It’s powerful and pulverized every ice particle it came in contact with. Here is the frapp recipe, I used Starbucks Mocha coffee and whole milk in mine. Simply amazing! Make sure to double strength the coffee as the recipe states or I’m sure it would be Crappuccino.

A visual…


The cup is very important to the authenticity 🙂

I’m so pleased with the effortless results and quality that comes with this pan

My first cheesecake experience wasn’t perfect and needs lots of tweaking but the right tools make it delightful!

I used this recipe, I never follow directions correctly,(don’t let your cc sit for 5 hours, pop that sucker in the freezer)I do my own thing, when you are almost 41 years old you realize that it’s perfectly acceptable and should be encouraged.

– I used a sugar cookie mix for the crust, omitted the egg and which was a good choice because it didn’t puff up but should have only used 2 tbs. of butter/margarine so it would have been a more crumbly crust.

-Dairy ingredients should always be room temperature before baking but the excitement of a new kitchen tool overtook me!

-Kitchenaid’s are powerful, over mixing is easy to do, trust me!

It was so much fun I’m already planning an Oreo version:)
