Saturday Night Sugar Fest

I wanted to share a recipe with everyone.....but it comes with a warning.  These are so deadly sweet and delicious.  Don't be scared by the ingredients, trust me, you will want to make these over and over and over again.  Thanks Pioneer Woman, you rock.

Apple Dumplings

2 Granny Smith apples
2 cans of crescent rolls
2 sticks of butter (unsalted)
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 small can of Mountain Dew or Sprite (8 oz.)

* Peal and core apples.  Cut apples into 8 slices each.  Roll each apple slice in a crescent roll.  Place in a 9x13 buttered pan.  Melt butter in a small pan then add sugar and barely stir.  Add vanilla, stir and pour over apples.  Pour soda around the edges of the pan.  Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or Cool Whip.  Spoon some of the sweet sauces from the pan over the top.  Enjoy.  Go into a sugar coma. 

 If you try these let me know what you think.  They were a huge hit last night at my house!

2 Great Products!

So the first one helped me get through my first few months of Pregnancy. It is Mommy Bliss, Morning Sickness Magic. It didn't totally take all of the nausea away, but it definitely helped ease it and made me much more functional. I've heard of the Preggie Pops or some other stuff, but I don't like hard candy and so these worked great. They are all natural and have folic acid, ginger, B6 and Raspberry or something in them. I highly recommend at least trying them to see if they help. If you are pregnant that is. You can get them at BabiesRUs for about 10 bucks.

Product number 2 I discovered this week. My hair stylist recommended it. I have really fine oily hair and cannot go without washing it everyday. I have tried to 'train' it, but have had no luck, it still in greasy and stinky by the end of day two. I had heard of Dry Shampoo, but never taken the time to go buy it. Until last week that is! Who can resist a product called 'Rockaholic Dirty Little Secret Dry Shampoo.' I mean not only is it Rockaholic, but Dirty Little Secret, it couldn't be better!!! It is made by TIGI and let me tell you it is AWESOME! Really truly I love it. It completely solves my problem and now I can go an extra day without having to wash and blow dry! Being Pregnant and hot makes that an extra bonus. Give it a whirl. I found it at a beauty supply place for $18.95. Worth every penny!
