Besides free books & money, who doesn't like food?  I know I do :)

Today i'm sharing a super easy yummy recipe that my kids force me to make often !!  I know at least one of the ingredients might make you pause but trust me, you really won't be able to tell once it's baked so just try it !!

My sister gave me this recipe and its simply called...


2 cans crescent rolls
2 apples, cored, peeled & cut into 8 slices 
(I use 4 apples and cut each apple into quarters)
2 sticks butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
(1) 12oz. can Mountain Dew

Wrap each apple slice in a crescent roll triangle
Arrange in a 9x13 pan
Melt Butter & mix in sugar & cinnamon 
Pour over croissant covered apples
Pour 1 can of Mountain Dew over the top
Bake in 350 oven for 45 min.
Sharing a second recipe just because I love to cook and bake :)
Candy Cane Fudge

2 (10 oz) pkgs vanilla baking chips
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
1 1/2 cups crushed candy canes
1 dash red or green food coloring(I left my fudge white)


Line an 8 inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and grease the foil.
Combine the vanilla chips and sweetened condensed milk in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir frequently until almost melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until smooth.  When chips are completely melted, stir in the peppermint extract, food coloring and candy canes.
Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan.  
Chill for 2 hours, then cut into squares.

Alpha favorite :)

Have you ever been asked what you like about Alpha Males?  Well I never had before but when I think about it, the Alpha Male is always the one that draws me in when I read a great book.    He's just got this unbelievable presence he exudes, one that makes you stop and take notice.   He makes me want to be the heroine just so I can have him :)  He doesn't give a sh** what others think of him and that makes him even more attractive.  He's always confident and sure about himself but even if he's got doubts, you'll never know about them.  He takes charge in every aspect of his life, dominates.  Of course the gorgeous and sexy part isn't a bad thing either.  So what exactly do you like about an Alpha male??    Well today i'd love for you to leave me a comment telling me what you like, what makes you pick the Alpha every time.  And, if you'd rather have the Beta, well tell me about that too!  Dont' forget to leave your email address in case you win!
