Friday FaVes- a book, some recipes and a decorating Blog

Sharing with you some Friday Faves! Happy Weekend Everyone!
My dad gave all of us  this book for Christmas. Its one of those books that is life-changing. It is easy to read and so convicting!
These Cream Cheese Squares are so good and easy! Adding a little bit of cinnamon and sugar to the top would make these even better for my sugar-lovin' boys!
Twirly Whirly Pizza Roll-Ups. This is one of those recipes that you might want to wait until your husband is out of town! Or if your lucky like me and have a husband who LOVES pizza, then this kid-friendly recipe is for you. Look for the recipe here on one of my favorite blogs.

Myron and I love to have Mexican on most Saturday Nights.  Its just a great time to have chips/dips, quesadillas, and try out a new mexican recipe while watching football the boys play!  This dip, "Paula Deen's Touchdown Taco Dip", is so awesome! My aunt first made it and we love it! ---its super easy,too! (We do NOt add all of the extra ingredients in the pic to our dip--so don't let that scare you off!)

Cheese (enough to cover the top)

One of my new Mexican Recipes (that I will share soon) is from my newly-wed sis, Jen. She has been cooking up a storm and lets me know when she finds a good recipe. This one is a keeper.
Doesn't it look good! Its not your typical "mexican" taste--so comforting and good!!
Look for it soon---
