Happy Sunday TKW Family! How’s your week been?  The past couple of weeks ours has been rather relaxing. Sometimes you have to just shut off the world and take a breath. We (all) work so super hard that often we lose track of ourselves and our needs. We push ourselves to (and through) our limits just to meet a deadline or get something done. Or maybe that’s just the norm for some. Only knowing full speed or level 10 high at a constant rate. However, at some point you’re going to burn out or worse.

We forget to look after us or put our needs last. That’s kind of what we have been doing. Well, not so much me as I can’t do much, but rather Mr. Fantabulous. About 2 weeks ago, after our sister in law passed away, Mr. Fantabulous’ brother called us and asked us to go on a last minute trip to Ocean City, Maryland for a couple of days to just get away. His heart had been broken with the loss of his wife and he needed to get away from their house just for a few days.

So us, and the Fantabulous in-laws, headed up to Ocean City for a couple of days. Overall the trip was really nice as anytime I can spend with the Fantabulous family is a blessing. I truly am blessed to have married into such a great family. Have you ever been to OC? This was a first for me. See growing up we couldn’t afford vacations like that. Our vacation was maybe a weekend trip to Sea World in Ohio for the day and then we’d all cram in a single crappy motel. I always always got the rollaway bed.

Let’s get our deliciousness on!

Happy Sunday TKW Family!  How are things in your world? So guess who just realized that Labor day is only a couple of weeks away? Yeah, this girlie. Dear God, my entire summer…wasted on this stupid shoulder surgery. Well okay it wasn’t wasted as it definitely needed done but my entire summer was spent stuck in a recliner, going to PT or to the doctors. Ugh…

So tell me about your summer!  Did you go away?  Where do?  What’s the BEST THING YOU DID THIS SUMMER? Let me live vicariously through you. Actually my summer wasn’t that bad, aside from the pain, it was pretty good. I got to spend so much time with Mr. Fantabulous that it just made us even closer (if that’s even possible). But it was nice, you know?

Tell me about your summer!

Hey TKW Family!  Happy Sunday! Dear Lord can I tell you just how horrible the weather has been here in Pittsburgh? We’re talking rain and not that itty bitty rain or those 20 minute long showers. Oh no, we have torrential downpours that last for hours. I swear at one point I was ready to build an ark. You can check out some of the Instagram pics I posted down below but man was it rough (and wet).

With all that rain we were pretty much house-bound. However, it was kind of cool as we spent time in the kitchen and watched a bajillion things. So we’ve been hooked on Naked and Afraid to the point that we’ve watched all 7 seasons AND the XL series. It’s funny as we’ll talk about how we’d handle it or what would be our one personal item we were allowed to bring. For him, depending on the location it was either a mosquito net or fire starter. Me…mine is lip gloss. LOL However I’d want some type of Swiss Army type lip gloss that had a bajillion secret compartments where it would hold shoes, a bazooka (something has to kill the creepy crawly things), an umbrella and a toothbrush. LOL

I mean the whole premise of the show is actually pretty cool. Sure it’s about survival against the most extreme elements and all, along with team-building skills but I see it as so much more. Essentially these people are conquering a fear they have albeit a fear of the dark or fear of personal belief.

Would you do Naked and Afraid?

Happy Sunday TKW Family and Happy 4th of July weekend! First and foremost, THANK YOU to those of you that serve or have served in our military. It is because of your selflessness that my family and I are free from harms way. Thank you for your service. You are loved, honored, respected and appreciated. May God bless you, keep you safe and bring you home soon to your families.

So I’m not going to lie, I kind of didn’t realize it was the holiday weekend until my girlfriend sent me a text asking if I was up to go over their house for a cookout for the 4th. Other than extreme boredom and the inability to do squat while my shoulder heals, I lose track of time. My sleep schedule is so whack it’s not even funny. I mean I’m not sometimes falling asleep until 4am and then only catnapping til 8. I blame it on the recliner.  How people can actually sleep in them is beyond me.

I wish I had more exciting things to share but honestly I don’t. Being house/recliner bound is not as luxurious as it sounds. I’ll try to help out Mr. Fantabulous as best as I can but my contribution is rather bleak. Instead I go and sit with him while he works on the house. Last week he got 4 more doors stained and hung. Oh guys you should see them!  They are absolutely gorgeous!  Once he finishes up putting up the trim and such around it I’ll post a pic. The work he does truly is amazing.

God Bless America!

Happy Sunday and Happy Birthday to me (and to all of my birthday twins out there!)!!!  How was your week?  Mine wasn’t too bad, just long. It just felt like the week would never end. At work, I received some really amazing praise and acknowledgments for all of the work I do and how everything I did for that one massive project I was one was crucial. It’s funny as I’m not one of those workers that looks for praise or stands up and says “Hey look at what I just did.” I’m there to do a job and getting a paycheck is enough. Thing is, I love what I do and it shows. But every now and then, when you’re going those extra miles, burning the midnight oil months on end and giving everything you have to make sure a project is a success it’s nice to be praised and honestly, thanked.

Last week was also a super busy week here in the TKW Test Kitchen. As you saw I posted 3 new recipes:

Buckeye Ice Cream Peanut Butter Cake Bomb
Peach BBQ Pork Bite Crostini
Caramel Infused Apple Cheddar Chicken Burgers

Now those 3 recipes, I’m telling you what guys, they NEED to make an appearance at your upcoming Memorial Day cookouts. Those Peach BBQ Pork Crostinis are insane!  Like I could eat just an entire plate of those as a meal. Then that burger. Oh, Dear Sweet Baby Jesus people! If you do not make this burger you’re committing a crime. It’s literally one of the best burgers I have ever had in my entire life. And that dessert…fahgeddaboutit. I did my Mom proud with that recipe. And if you think about it, when you make all 3 you literally made an entire meal – appetizer, main course, and dessert. You need nothing else!  Well okay, maybe some cool drinks.

This upcoming week I have lots to get done. With Goetz’s Candy Company being one of my newest clients I have more recipes I want to create for them using their amazing products. Plus I have some other client recipes as well as stuff I just want to share. This is the time when I really, REALLY need an assistant (locally I’m afraid) to help me start with video shooting and editing. But for now, I’m managing. I got this!

Spending the day doing ‘me’ stuff!
