Chocolate Puffs

I made some chocolate puffs tonight & they were actually really good,my whole family loved them.

6 snack size Three Musketeers
6 Big & Flaky Crescent Rolls
3/4 cup melted butter

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Remove the rolls from the package & lay all of them flat. Unwrap the candy bars & place one bar per roll at the widest end. Roll them up making sure all gaps are sealed. Place them into an oiled muffin tin. Brush with the butter & bake for 10 minutes. Serve warm.

These were really rich, gooey & nom nom nommy!! They'd also be great with any candy bar I'm sure. Next time I'm going to use reese cup minis!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope all of you had a wonderful day filled with smiles, laughter, joy & lots of good food.

I have been WAY out of the blogging game for awhile & for that I apologize. Being a full time student & a full time (first time) mom hasn't left me with energy to do much of anything lately except spend time with Frost, do school work & watch TV about an hour a night to unwind.

I bought two domains back in the spring, one for my mommy blog & one for me to write about culinary school, post recipes & food related awesomeness...but I haven't got around to doing anything with them as of yet. I hope to be able to soon however...
Once someone reveals to me the great secrets of time management, lol

I would love to be able to blog every day, or at least several times a week but I tend to get easily side tracked with off-line life, so I won't make any promises I can not keep. I will simply say that I fully intend to give it my best shot & attempt to write at least twice a week.

So leave me a comment to let me know if any of you still reads my blog by telling me what you're most thankful for this holiday season!!

The Good & The Bad

I realize that my blog has been lacking a lot these past 6 months & for that I apologize. I've missed being able to update my blog & I've missed being able to read over some of my favorite blogs.

During my 8th month of pregnancy the hubby & I lost our home & have been staying with family ever since. I didn't have internet access so blogging was not an option. During that time we also lost our dog Bowser. Nearly two months later Bowser was reunited with us, only to have him get hit by a truck soon after. We've been heartbroken at all of our seemingly "bad luck" these past few months. I'm not going to go into anymore details but it has been a really tough time for us. The only thing that's keeping us going is our wonderful little (nearly 6 month old) daughter, Emberlynn Frost McConaha. She's by far the light of our life.

It seems that things may slowly be starting to get back on track for us though, my mom & I are about to start school in April. We're going to the local tech school to get our Culinary Arts diploma. We're both pretty excited about that. I'm also starting to help my best friend with some of her blog template designs because I can really use the extra cash.

I don't really have much else to say at the moment, but I promise I'll keep updating as much as possible since I have internet again! :-)

I'd love to win this nifty cell phone because of all the different brand name cell phones that I've used I find Motorola to be the most reliable & sturdy. My very first cell was a Motorola & it lasted for years wihtout any trouble.

So who knows, maybe I'll get really lucky & snag this baby! :-)
