Scrapbook Pages

I've been so crazy getting ready for Christmas and my trip to London, but I really wanted to scrap, so I set aside a few hours and got these pages done. I hope to get a few more pages done this weekend in between baking and wrapping presents

Baked Pork Chops with Loaded Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This was a great dinner and these pork chops were perfect since Kyle loves shake and bake and this was a better version of it. I got thin cut pork chops at the store so they didn't take long to cook at all. Here's the link to both of these recipes

NYC At Christmas

I love living close enough to the city to go and visit often. I love seeing all the lights and decorations around Christmas and all the holiday markets to shop in. Of course we always pick the coldest day to go in and this year it was snowing, and it was a cold, wet snow. Here's some pictures of our night in the city

Tortellini Skillet Lasagna


This was a wonderful pasta dish and was great to use my homemade sauce with. I bought sausage for this and cut them open to use for this meal. We are lucky to have a great local market that I got fresh tortellini and mozzarella from. Here's the link to the recipe

Ham and Potato Chowder


This is a perfect cold weather food. I added some carrots to this because I just love them and I had them around the house so figured I'd put them in. Here's the link to this quick soup that is delicious

Carrot Cake


Made this cake for my moms birthday since she requested a coconut icing carrot cake. Tasted great and I toasted the coconut in the oven and put it on the sides of the cake. Here's the link to this wonderful recipe

Scrapbook layouts and Card

 Made this Christmas card for the holidays, simple card, but I love the tearing

 I've had this paper for awhile and didn't know what to do with it, so had these instagram pictures printed and had the perfect idea for the paper

 Love the gold scrapbook items lately so had to use it for a layout about me
