How to Make and serve Chicago Style Hot Dogs is so easy you really shouldn’t tell anyone how little effort you actually put into the meal.  {{smiling}}  The great thing about this Recipe is that you can serve it for lunch or dinner and it looks really appetizing.   Plus, it is quite filling and a great way to add protein to your meal.  If one hot dog isn’t enough for someone, well, they can have more than one!  Easy Peasy.  I’m a huge fan of avocado, so I’ve added it to my recipe creation that was sponsored by Hillshire Brands™  as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.  I’m pretty sure Chicago-style hot dogs don’t really contain avocado.

If you are a Safeway shopper, you’ll love to know that Hillshire Brands™ has several products that can help you add protein to your meal, like Hillshire Farm Smoke Sausage, Jimmy Dean Sausage, and more.  Don’t rely on hot dogs alone.

We have this love in our house of Tres Leche desserts. The love might stem from the fact that we always eat Tres Leche OUT. I never make it at home, so it’s a special treat. However, this week that all changed and to tell you the truth, I’m not positive that’s a good thing. I decided to make a modified recipe of one that was created by Little Inspiration {that should be illegal it’s so delicious, by the way} and I’ve pretty much been in heaven ever since. I made several modifications, but,the biggest was to use International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer for Evaporated Milk in the Tres Leche. It’s just sinful to combine 3 types of milky goodness with pumpkin in a cupcake and hope to not be completely addicted. However, if you want to serve a cupcake that will have your family or guests swooning, this Fall Tres Leche Pumpkin Cupcake recipe is for you!

If you love Chicken and Hot Sauce, you are going to adore this recipe for making Texas Pete® Sultry Grilled Chicken.  Made with either boneless chicken tenders or thighs, this grilled chicken recipe uses Texas Pete Hot Sauce as an ingredient, not a condiment, insuring that your recipe is memorable as well as tasty!  The chicken dish has to marinade for 48 hours, so you need to prepare ahead, but the grilled results are worth it!

I just love the holiday season, don’t you?  I love that with all of the holiday baking and shopping and prep, I have time to think about and share my favorite things.  I LOVE seeing what other people LOVE too.  So, I hope you’ll share your favorite things with me as well!  This year I’ve found a few fun items that have made me life better….and here they are……

My 5 Favorite Things

kindle paper white 1.  Kindle Paper White ~ I have an iPhone and an iPad, so when my husband bought me a kindle paper white, I wasn’t sure that I would use it as much as I do.  However, it was LOVE at first use.  It is the perfect weight to hold so my hand never falls asleep holding it, and best of all, I can read books outside.  During the summer, this was a life saver as I read by the pool all the time.  Plus, it has a 3G connectivity so I can search for books wherever I am.  Did I mention that the battery lasts weeks? hudson jeans

2.  Hudson Jeans ~  Everyone needs a pair of Hudson jeans.  This particular pair is great year round because they can be worn with heels as shown, with flip flops to dress down, and with boots in the winter.  Plus, the pocket in the back doesn’t have a flap so you can stash your phone if you are going somewhere without your purse!

lollia{photo credit:  Lollia}

3.  Lollia Bath Products ~ Lollia has a few different fragrance lines and the thing I love most is that each piece is exquisitely designed.  I mean, even the soaps have packaging that looks so beautiful you almost don’t want to unwrap it.  Each piece is different in each line, too.  Want luxury bath products that smell lovely and look gorgeous?  Then this is your line. Keurig Mini Brewer 4.  Keurig® MINI Plus Brewer ~ We are LOVING the brewer for Hot Chocolate and other hot beverages!  My kids love being able to pop in the K-cup and have a cup of hot chocolate in a minute.   I like that it’s compact.   minted 5.  Personalized Stationery ~ I ordered my Christmas Cards from Minted this year (they sent me a code so that I could get 35 cards) and I fell in love.  The items at the online store….oh.my.stars.  So many options.  Such quality.  So easy to order.   They even have custom photo backdrops.  {{so cool}}

What are your favorite things?

Silver cowboy boots are hot for Fall, and in case you are wondering how to wear them, I’m here to help.  You don’t need to be Miranda Lambert to rock a great pair of boots with flair, you just need the right attitude and accessories.  I’m a big fan of fun and flirty and silver boots are just the ticket.  Be prepared to be noticed, but in a good way.

Silver cowboy boots country outfitters

Wondering about the new silver boots trend?  You can see more here.  And, if silver boots aren’t your thing, be sure to check out all of the boots available at Country Outfitter, because there are a ton, and they are gorgeous.

How to Wear Silver Cowboy Boots

Silver cowboy boots country outfitters

In order to rock silver cowboy boots, I think you need denim, bracelets, layered necklaces, and sass.  It’s a secret combination that you cannot go wrong with.  {{smiling}} Plus, it’s a look that can go from city to country, daytime to night and is sort of ageless, although it does look better on the younger crowd.

Silver cowboy boots country outfitters

Silver cowboy boots country outfitters

I am a minimalist and live in an urban area and am not a huge fan of too much bling, so my tips for not over-doing the silver boot trend might be helpful.  First of all, Do Not, and I can’t stress this enough, do not wear with sequins or other sparkly items of clothing unless you are going somewhere where you want ALL EYES ON YOU.  I’d recommend neutral, SOLID pieces so as to draw attention to the wow factor on your feet, not overwhelm the senses all over your body.   And lastly, have FUN with your boots, just don’t over-do it.  {{big smile}}

What are your thoughts on this seasonal trend?  Are you ready to grab some silver boots and sass?

About the Pink Ribbon Bagel

Menu_BagelPinkRibbon

The Pink Ribbon Bagel was “born” in 2001 when Sue Stees, a Panera franchisee in Oklahoma and breast cancer survivor began researching ways to raise funds for other women battling cancer.  She experimented in the kitchen and the ribbon shaped bagel was born.    Since then, more than 9 million bagels have been sold and over $2 million has been raised for breast cancer charities across the country.

The bagel is shaped like a ribbon and made with cherry chips, dried cherries, cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar.  {{sounds delicious, right?}}

This year Panera wants to really make a push to raise money for breast cancer research and beat their previous records.  It’s SO easy for us to help!   

There are over 65 Southern California bakeries offering the Pink Ribbon Bagel this month, so be sure to pick some up for your friends, family and self!  {{smiling}}

The Pink Ribbon Bagels are available today, so be sure to go check them out, and mark your calendar for the 10th  {that’s the day to really make a difference!!!}}}
