This is my very first time making it, in my whole life...lol. Two of my kids enjoyed it. DH said that I needed more sauce and cheese. I was having second thought actually before putting it in the oven. I was looking at it and thinking that maybe more sauce and cheese will be needed. Sure enough I was right all along. Since this is my very first time making it, the next time I'll make sure there are plenty of the sauce and cheese on it. No more store bought or ready to eat pizza for us. Now, time to work on my cinnabon...lol.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Werever Products Inc. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have posted about outdoor kitchen a long time ago but this post is not about the way we cook in the olden days. This is how we can use our outdoor space for our kitchen, extending our living space out. I do love the idea of extending the living space out but when you live in the cold North like me, you can only enjoy this a few months a year. However, I can enclose the outdoor kitchen and make it all season and can be use all yearlong. I do love the idea of having a grill in my kitchen and have grilled food all year round; they are much healthier than any other method of cooking, in my opinion.
All the materials are built with solid marine-grade polymer and back with lifetime warranty. They stay looking new with maintenance free outdoor cabinetry. They are easy to put together and withstand temperature changes. You can call or email them with your customize detailed design to fit your needs. Remember when I say extending living space outdoor, you can also have an outdoor tv cabinet. You don’t need to wheel it in and out. Your TV will be protected with the same materials as your outdoor kitchen. They offer free shipping on orders over $1,500 in 48 U.S. states. Put your own outdoor kitchen yourself from Werever Outdoor Products.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Club House. All opinions are 100% mine.
I only started hosting Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner when we bought our house. Before then we always go to my sister in law’s house for these occasions. I never cooked turkey or ham before then either. I am not very fond of turkey or chunk of ham, but I will eat them just for these occasions. Before the first event in our house, I had to buy a whole chicken to practice with. I followed every direction and the chicken came out perfect. I was pretty proud of myself getting it perfect for the first try. And yes, I have been cooking holiday dinners from then.
I brought the gravy in a can and just add water stuffing because I don't want a messed-up. The gravy and stuffing are still not perfect until today. I just learn about using the pan drippings from gravy tips video at Club House Gravy. And guess what; I will use the drippings from this day forward. Holiday is very stressful enough and I don’t need to stress out about cooking. It is very easy to make, if you can read you can make this. This is a very nice video for people who will make Christmas dinner for the very first time.
Furthermore, while you are checking their website, stop at the newsletter sign-up and contest entry to get a chance on winning the Gravy Gift Pack.

You offer people a dark side that is very hard to resist.

Ads are very powerful tools to get messages across, to make the difference in this world. Those who can afford it will have a wide variety to choose from. If I can afford it, I will use myJones custom soda to educate the public about our government. This will not be a gift but a handout for the public in every gathering. Each can or bottle will have messages in them, telling what is wrong and right in our society. With every different variety comes the different message. And the flavor I will use is Buko, this is not well known but everyone knows it as young coconut.
I will name it simply “Buko soda” and it comes with different variation. The picture above will be part of the logo along with a tropical scene. The flavors will come from anything we can use the Buko for. For example, Buko pie is very popular right now in my country and that will be one of the flavors. Furthermore, regular flavor will be the first one, with the message “Natural Is the Best”. Have you ever tasted buko before? They came naturally carbonated and best for cleansing our system. Moreover, if you want something customize as a gift check myJones for yourself. A really great gift for soda lovers out there.
Now that I discover Hershey chocolate cake, I will never go back. I always make chocolate cake with chocolate icing. And it has usually gone the next day. We are done with a birthday for this year, and I am not making one again until May for my DD. The image below is our DS having his 9th birthday in the beginning of December.
How about that krueger shirt...lol?
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Wheat Food Council. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have used whole wheat flour in some of my recipes in this blog. The consistency is a little heavy, but it works the same. I have used it with my sugar cookies and dinner rolls recipes. Remember I mentioned before that I wanted a grain grinder before? Yes, it would be nice to grow my own and grind it myself. My parents grind their grains when I was little, and I think it’s the best way to be healthy. However, there a lot who don’t have land to plant something and rely on their local grocery store for everyday needs.
I am talking about wheat because I wanted you to visit “How Wheat Works”. They are running an interactive program to educate us on how wheat gets to our local grocery store. You can virtually plant wheat, each of four phases takes a few minutes to complete. For each participant, the Wheat Foods Council will donate two pounds of flour and up to 90,000 pounds to Operation Homefront, a non-profit organization that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their family. Not only we can learn how to grow wheat virtually, we also help people in needs. This program is also being extended to youth through www.wheatfoods.org.

Now that you have some hot cocoa, here are some cookies fresh out of the oven. I think we need to wait a little because it's kinda hard to pick it up when it's this soft. I like it best when they are chewy after cooling down. Please help yourselves to have some energy I mean cookies while shopping for Christmas present. And don't forget to grab some hot cocoa to keep you warm.

So, who got everything they wanted for less during the Black Friday sale? I’m sad to say that I didn’t because I don’t have the gut to be in a very crowded store. We shopped online instead of driving around and looking for nice deals. Plus, I hate the traffic on Black Fridays.

I was thinking going to bed early tonight and good thing I didn't. Whew! Here I am thanking the traffics for my bandwidth exceeding and today I only have 10 visits. Aya-yay, please don't get mad, my brain was very tired yesterday...lol.

Then I will make coordinating linens from table cloths & runners, napkins, towels, placemats and straight to my kitchen from oven mitts, and pot holders. My whole dining and kitchen area will be so colorful on every Thanksgiving and Christmas alike. That would be too much work changing and rearranging everything but I think it will be worth it.
Everyone will praise the way I decorate every bake Food and my kitchen. But then again, I might have to take some classes about food decorating before that happens…ha ha ha. It is so nice to dream about things I wanted to have. That all I can do for now and I am happy that I can still do it. I think most housewives dream of having this stuff in their kitchen. Don’t you?
