For my Mini Happy planner I used left over pieces from kits I had previously used.  I am trying to use up all my leftover kits so I am not wasting them.   I think it came out cute.



Then for my Recollections Spiral planner I used a kit from XoMama Plans on Etsy.  Her shop link is below.   I just love the butterflies in this kit.

Parmesan Baked Pork Chops

Hi Guys, Another amazing recipe for you to try.  This is simple and amazingly good.  Just a few ingredients is all you need.  For those of you on a budget, all of these listed ingredients below can be found at your local Aldi.  I hope you try and enjoy this recipe.

These pork chops came out so crunchy and I didn’t have to fry them.



4 bone in or boneless pork chops

1 cup parmesan cheese

1 ½ cup panko

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste


Pre-heat oven at 350 degree

Using a zip lock back put the pork chops in the bag and then add in the listed seasoning and coat the chops well.  Let the chops marinade for at least one hour or overnight if you can.

Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum and spray with cooking spray so chops don’t stick.

Place the panko and parmesan cheese in a dish so you can begin to coat the pork chops.

Take each pork chop and dredge it into the panko parmesan cheese coating and shake off any access. Place on aluminum lined baking sheet. Continue process until all the pork chops are coated.

Place the baking sheet with pork chops into the oven and let cook for about 30 to 45 minutes depending on your oven.

When pork chops are done remove from oven and serve with a side.



Chicken Stir Fry (Is What’s For Dinner)

Hi guys, this is one of many of my go to easy meals.  All it takes it about 30 minutes to make which is great for when I come home from work and want to fix some quick and delicious meal.   The recipe is listed below and is also found under my Main Dishes menu.  We make this in several variations depending what I have on hand, but it is always delicious.



1 package chicken flavored Ramen Noodles

1 lb boneless chicken cut into strips

1 cup of fresh pea pods

¼ cup of carrots thinly sliced

1 cup bean sprouts

½ cup soy sauce (or to taste)

2 tsp sesame seed oil

1 cup broccoli


Marinade the chicken with 1 table-spoon sesame oil and 1 table-spoon of soy sauce.  Let marinade for about 30 minutes to 1 hour if time permits.

Set seasoning packs aside from the Ramen soup.  You want to cook the Ramen soup noodles per the package directions, maybe slightly under.

In a large wok or skillet add about 1 tbsp of sesame oil, stir fry the chicken for 5 to 7 minutes until no longer pink and cook through.  Then add in the vegetables and stir fry those for 3 to 4 minutes, but still have crispness to them.

Drain the noodles and then add them to the stir fry along with the seasoning packs, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil.   Stir all ingredients until well mixed, and then serve.

Serves 4 to 5


Cinnamon Sugar Bites (Just 4 Ingredients)

Using the same pan with the bacon droppings add in the ground beef to the pan.  Then add in the onion, garlic, salt and pepper along with the burger seasoning.  Cook beef until no longer pink.  Drain any access fat from beef.

While beef is cooking peel and slice potatoes into ½ inch thickness.  (I used a Madeline)
