Easy Baked Egg Rolls Recipe

I have never made egg rolls before but I do love eating them.  I guess I never like to deep fry things at the house and never realized there was an easy baked Egg Rolls recipe out there that you can improvise the proteins.  This is truly an easy baked egg roll recipe as the first time I made them, I had my daughter and her friend roll them up as we were in a rush to get dinner on the table.  The second time I made them for a party and changed up the filling since I purchased the wrong container of Tofu at the store.  Get ready for Chinese New year, roll up several for Game Day or just make some for dinner as these Baked Egg Rolls are sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Improving You Indoor Lighting and GE Lighting Home Makeover Sweepstakes

This post about improving your indoor lighting has been brought to you by GE Confluence.  All opinions are 100% our own.

Recently my husband has been investing in LED bulbs for our home. I have noticed a huge difference in the overhead LED he has swapped out.  My photographs have actually improved where before I had to turn off the lights and find as much natural light as possible.  Since they are a little pricey, I thought I would show you the difference of adding a Reveal Bulb light instead of a regular light to improve your indoor Lighting at a minimal cost.  Keeping reading to the bottom of this post to learn about the GE Lighting Home Makeover Sweepstakes.  Only a few more days to enter

#AD Game Day Buffet Ideas Using Deli Wings


This shop about Game Day Buffet ideas using Deli Wings  has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GameTimeHero #CollectiveBias

Are you hosting an event this Sunday for the Big Game?  Maybe you thought about it but you don’t have time to cook.  We are sharing Game Day Buffet Ideas using Prepared Deli Wings.  Yes prepared chicken wings from the deli.  I am not biased about wings but having a husband from Buffalo, NY things can get a little hairy.

When we were first married he prepared some wings at the house and it stunk up the house for a few days.  We later got a deep fryer (outdoor kind) and he prepared wings outside for a big game a few years ago.  However, my puppy decided to lick all the oil he left outside and what a mess that became.  Needless to say the only chicken wings coming into this house for now on, are prepared wings.

Super Bowl Recipe : 2 Ingredient Queso with R0*TEL & VELVEETA

This post about 2 ingredient Queso is brought to you by RO*TEL & VELVEETA . The content and opinions expressed below are that of close to home.

The first time I was introduced to queso was in college where I lived with a girl from Texas. We had an off campus house and were throwing a party. She plopped a can of RO*TEL tomatoes (never seen before) and some VELVEETA (familiar with) into a bowl and microwaved it to into a cheesy but spicy bowl of goodness. The result is what I would call the ultimate College recipe.

We are so excited to be hosting another Disneyside party this year.  For the most part we will be keeping with the same theme but we are still awaiting our box of goodies so that will change.  I have started making our DIY Mickey Mouse Invitations  but thought we would add a few new decorations into the mix.  After making this Valentine’s Day Wreath I got a touch of the crafting bug and created this Mickey Mouse Wreath for under $5. It took less than an hour and it is simple but screams MICKEY.
