It's been sooooo long since I last posted!! I honestly do not know how stay-at-home mom's do it...really, this is way to hard for me...trying to take care of the little man, get him fed, to nap, and clean up after him, do laundry, eat myself, get a shower, brush my teeth!, and try to attempt to get dinner on the table by seriously exhausting!!! and....not to mention, doing it ALL on about 4 good hours of sleep??? You people are crazy!!! LOL, I can't wait to go back to work all ready, it's going to feel like a vacation!! HAHAHA, ok....anyway, my friend Jenn told me about this recipe and I honestly couldn't remember the ingredients when she rattled them off to me, so I searched for it on This is super easy, and delicious!!!
