In the kitchen again :)

I'm slowly trying to get back to my cooking self and not become totally dependent on Lean Cuisines. So last night I was back in the kitchen for another casserole-y dish. This time Corn Pudding.

One of my brother-in-law's birthday was yesterday and we had a "dinner party." I will use the word dinner loosely because even on a Tuesday night they PAR-TAYED!

Of course me being of the lamer variety...I went home probably as the party was cranking up (I was sooo sleepy).

Anywho, for those of you that actually try some of the food I post on my blog, thank you! And for my cousin C.N. I am sure you and the hubby will enjoy this.

I only make this for crowds and haven't tried a smaller version but it's so good you won't want a smaller version! Adapted from Cajun Corn Pudding on www.foodnetwork.com.
I use frozen corn...and frozen onions and bell peppers (time savers).

My mess of a counter of ingredients...I vary slightly from the recipe

The wet stuff...

I think next time i will start to cook the bacon first...as it never gets crispy this way

Mix it all together and what do you get? Ding Dong! (Sorry, childhood flashback)


I used an aluminum pan so I didn't have to worry about clean-up/getting my pan back. Placed the pan on a cookie sheet

I forgot to take a picture before I left home, so this is after transport in the flimsy pan

This recipe has been a hit every time I've made it and I've made it several times in the past few months. When I went to fix me a little more it was all gone. Go figure. I don't even know if my BIL actually got some and this was one of his presents from me!

I didn't list the ingredients because I vary slightly from the recipe and I don't use precise measurements. this is truly a dish to make your own.

I add a handful of Monterrey cheese and I like the color that red bell pepper adds (didn't have any this time). It is truly a delicious dish that is awesome with hot wings. If you try this recipe, please come back and let me know what you think!!

Happy Eating!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
