It was exactly 8:51 pm on a Sunday evening and I was sitting at the kitchen counter on the computer scrolling through Facebook.   My youngest son was looking over my shoulder and commenting on the photos.  He then looked at me and said, “Mom, are you always on Facebook?”  This made me stop and think…am I on Facebook a lot?  I didn’t think so but maybe I don’t realize how much time in a day I waste looking through Facebook.   I decided right there without really thinking to Deactivate my account.   But right before I pushed the button I did a quick search and realized if I deactivated my personal account my business account would be deactivated too.   I didn’t want that! So I made a promise to my youngest son that for 7 days I would NOT go on Facebook.   Maybe after 7 days I will be able to answer the question: What do I get out of Facebook personally?  So at that moment of 8:51 pm my son and I went to my personal page and said our farewells to family and friends for 7 days!!

Day 1:  It’s Monday morning at 6:45 am.   My husband just left for work and the boys are still sleeping.  I go to the kitchen and make myself a bowl of cereal.  I sit down in front of the computer and check my emails.   I do a check of the website for orders that may have come in over night and then I start to type http://www.facebook.com into my browser.   NOT so fast! I remember my challenge with my son.  This could be harder than I thought.

Day 2:  Wow! I am so shocked how easy this challenge is so far.  It’s Tuesday and not really missing Facebook that much.   Now I will say I am missing doing some Facebook on my business page but a deal is a deal :)  I did have one post scheduled for yesterday for my business page before the challenge was made.  So at least one post will be made this week!

Day 3 through Day 7:  I can’t believe how easy this time was for me.   After the first two days of opening Facebook out of habit I really didn’t even think about Facebook!  I am surprised how easy this challenge was for me.  Plus, I am shocked that after the second day I was out of the habit of opening up Facebook on the computer or my phone.

So what did I gain from this challenge?  Well, I realized that I use Facebook for business, which is important when you own a small business and rely on word of mouth for customers :)  Plus, the other thing I learned from this challenge is that I talk to a lot of my family through Facebook so for that week I really didn’t talk to them and I missed them!  Moving forward I am going to try not to use Facebook to waste time that I will never get back.   I told my youngest son that I would no longer sit in the evenings on my phone looking on Facebook and use that time more wisely.

I survived 7 days without Facebook.  Are you up for a No Facebook challenge?  Do you think you could live without Facebook for 7 days? Let us know how you did if you do the challenge.

Good Luck!

Tasty Treats ~ True Belgian Waffles

Tasty Treats ~ True Belgian Waffles

My youngest son just loves pancakes and waffles.   He even loves McDonald’s pancakes more :) But eating at McDonald’s for breakfast all the time can get costly and it’s not healthy for you.   I found a great pancake recipe from Food Network.  I will have to share that with you all sometime but I stumbled across this Belgian Waffle recipe that my whole family cannot get enough of and I thought I should share with you all.   They are that good and plus they are easy to make.  I make a whole batch and then I freeze the rest and just pop them in the toaster when they want one in the morning.  This recipe has that true Belgian sweet taste so you could eat them plain!  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do :)

Enjoy cooking!

snickerdoodle cookies

The BEST Snickerdoodle Cookies!

Even though I took time off from the blog because of my crazy families hectic schedule that does not mean I stopped cooking and baking.   With a teenager in the house (plus teenager friends) I seem to be baking a lot more often :)  But I don’t mind because I love it.

This recipe is one of my oldest son’s favorite recipes.  He just loves a Snickerdoodle cookie!  It’s an easy recipe and you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.  I found the recipe on Lovintheoven.com blog.   I promise you will not be disappointed.   You must add this recipe to your to do list!

Recipe from: Lovintheoven.com Blog

Yields: 16 to 18 cookies

Ingredients:

    • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
For rolling:
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars with an electric mixer on high speed. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  2. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
  3. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Preheat oven to 300 degrees while you let the dough rest for 30 to 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the sugar with the cinnamon for the topping.
  6. Take about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the dough and roll it into a ball. Roll this dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture and press it onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cookies.
  7. Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes and no more. The cookies may seem undercooked, but will continue to develop after they are removed from the oven. When the cookies have cooled they should be soft and chewy in the middle.

 

Enjoy baking and thanks for stopping by!

Tasty Treats - Easy Lemon Cookies

Tasty Treats – Easy Lemon Cookies

At My Baby Pajamas we decided to mix it up a bit.   Instead of doing a weekly Tuesday Cook Off post we decided we would post a recipe when it was a winner.   So for now on we are going to call our dessert post Tasty Treats (thanks to Jeff Fisher) and our dinner recipe post Family Feast.

So this post is a Tasty Treat for sure.  If you love lemon you are going to love these EASY lemon cookies.   My youngest son came home to me last week and asked me why I never made him lemon cookies.   I said I didn’t even know you liked lemon cookies.  Well, then he proceeded to tell me he likes lemonade and Lemonheads so he must like lemon cookies. :)  I was a little unsure about making a whole batch of lemon cookies and then my husband and I would be stuck eating them!

So I searched Pinterest for a recipe that didn’t seem too lemony and that was easy too.   I found the perfect winner.   These cookies were so easy to make and the WHOLE family loved them!! This included my older son who doesn’t really like lemon favor.   But he loved them and asked for them in his lunch.

Now I know these cookies are not totally 100% made from scratch but sometimes moms just need an easy way out every once in awhile :)

 

Recipe from Gimmesomeoven.com

Yields about 24-30 cookies

Ingredients: 

  • 1 package lemon cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • juice of half a lemon (about 1 Tbsp.)
  • zest of half a lemon (about 1 tsp.)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar for decor (optional)

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Pour cake mix into a large bowl. Stir in eggs, oil, lemon juice and zest until well blended. Form dough into small balls (about 1 Tbsp.), and drop into a bowl of confectioners’ sugar. Roll them around until they’re lightly covered. Once sugared, place on a lightly-greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 6 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. The bottoms will be light brown, and the insides chewy.

**To get a rounder, fluffier cookie, let the dough refrigerate at least 30 minutes. (You can also prepare the sugared balls of dough on the cookie sheet, and just refrigerate the sheet for about ten minutes for a similar effect.)

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did!

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

My kids love chocolate chip cookies!  Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies.   But sometimes you want to mix it up a bit and what better way than to make cookie bars.   My husband actually likes the cookie bars over cookies but everyone is different.   My boys will eat either as long as it’s chocolate chip!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it was really easy to bake.  I think it’s a keeper :)

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Easy Fruit Smoothies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Easy Fruit Smoothies

I know a lot of the country is having snowy weather and cold temperatures but here in the Phoenix, AZ area, it’s heating up.  While the rest of the country has been below normal temperatures, Phoenix AZ has been breaking records on our high temperatures.   So it’s hot and the kids are hungry after school.   Monday through Thursday after school we are in the house and back out for some kind of sport practice.  Since we are strapped for time I started making these fruit smoothies and the boys (including my husband) just love them!  I just mix all the ingredients in our Vitamix and it’s done in about 2 minutes.  Plus, it’s a healthy snack before their sport practices.

Easy Fruit Smoothies:

1 cup frozen strawberries (no sugar added)

1/2 cup frozen blueberries (no sugar added) I also have used a mix berry bag of frozen fruit

1 medium banana

1/2 cup skim milk

2 oz. non-fat Greek yogurt (or regular plain yogurt)

Add all of these items to your blender and blend. If it’s too thick, add a little water.

Feel free to add protein powder if you like.
