Lego's + Daughter + Husband = 2 hours of me time!

Bless you Mr. Lego inventor! My husband recently decided to spend a gift card he picked during Christmas on our daughter.  He but her the box above.  Needless to say everyday this week she has been playing with her Lego's and building a house for her horse.  It is so sweet to watch them connect, he was a Lego collector as a small child.  Who would have known that this pink bucket and its tiny contents would be such a hit! You can go  here and pick one up for your little builders.

Oreo Truffles

Yummy… yummy…
I made these with my daughter and they were great. We brought them to the office as a special treat and made them for her teachers for Christmas. You can find the recipe here from kraft
My sister loved them so much we made some for her baby shower, but instead of covering them in chocolate I let my niece and daughter cover them in powdered sugar and colored sugar. (The powdered sugar ones were the prettiest but the sugar absorbed the moisture from the truffle and they looked a little wonky after a few hours.) Give these a try they are super duper easy!  Valentine's Day is right around the corner, these would make a great little gift... I made at least 3 dozen from one batch.  Enough for the teachers, the office and some for the Chocoholics in my house!

Here they are right after we took them out of the fridge.

Here they are being dipped.

Yummy! With sprinkles!

I love the look of these ruffles. Super sexy and super flirty! Exclusively available at Rigby & Peller, the Platinum retro high waisted brief.

So I have been thinking… dreaming of these yummy fluffy pillows for a couple of weeks ever since I saw them on Food Networks Iron Chef America. Well here are 3 different recipes worth a shoot. All of them are from the Food Network, I think I may breakdown and make them this weekend…

This one is from my favorite Food Network star Paula Deen. This is here version, you can find the full recipe here.

This is more of a traditional recipe from Mr. New Orleans himself, Emeril Lagasse. You can find his version here.

And last but not least this is Sandra Lee's version. This is the easiest and quickest of the three, she uses ready to use biscuit dough but it still looks mouth watering. You can find her full recipe here.
