Dulce de Leche Churro Sticks

We are back with recipe #2 from Chelsea's bridal shower!

I am a sucker for anything remotely caramel flavored. When I saw Cookies & Cups post a recipe for these churro sticks I was pumped! I thought this is something a little different for the shower.

This recipe is pretty simple and the possibilities are endless! And honestly, who doesn't like anything rolled around in cinnamon and sugar?!? 

Dulce de Leche Churro Sticks
1 box of refrigerated pie crusts
1/2 can dulce de leche
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 sticks butter, melted

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

I floured my counter and rolled out both pie crusts. 

Then I took about half my can of dulce de leche and spread out all over one pie crust. 

I covered the first pie crust with the second and used my pizza cutter to cut strips.

I then placed the strips on my baking sheets and used a fork to seal the edges of the sticks.

I baked them in the oven for 20 minutes until they were a light, golden brown. 

While they were baking I mixed my granulated sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.

When the sticks came out of the oven, I had to use my pizza cutter to cut off a little dulce de leche that leaked out and burnt. Ooops.... No harm done! You just have to roll with it in the kitchen.

Next you brush each side of each stick with melted butter and roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Set on a baking rack to cool a little bit, but these are great eaten warm or at room temperature!

If you don't like dulce de leche, you could fill these with Nutella, caramel sauce and diced apples, peanut butter, whatever your heart desires! Or just bake the pie strips and roll them in cinnamon sugar!

Until next time,

Date Night Jar

The Hubby and I have been together 8 years. The one thing we have consistently argued over for those 8 years is the question, "What do you want to do?"

I consider us to both be intelligent adults, but when that question comes out of the other persons mouth its like we become fools and have no thoughts.

Our common answer is "I don't know" or "I don't care". 

Well I found something to fix that problem. Our date night jar!

I saw the idea on Pinterest (where all ideas live of course) and decided it was an inexpensive, crafty solution to our problem.

All you need are Popsicle sticks, markers, a jar, and your list of activities you want to use.

Both the Hubby and I brainstormed ideas in the categories of free dates, cheap dates, more expensive dates, and plan ahead dates.

Here is our example list:

Making the list was the hardest part. There are a lot of online links for date ideas. Just cater your list to your tastes and preferences!

This doesn't really requ…

Songs I am Obsessed With Right Now

Maybe I am the only person, but when I hear a song I like on the radio I kind of get obsessed with it. I just want it to come on all the time! Or I go home and YouTube it over and over!

Here are a few of the songs I love right now!

This song by the Chainsmokers is awesome. It has such a great beat and it's always on the radio right now!

Dan and Shay are a great country duo, but From the Ground Up is such a beautiful song. I absolutely love it.

Florida Georgia Line has never put out a bad song. It took me a few times for me to get into this one, but I really like the song. It's another I love to sing when it comes across the radio (which is quite a bit).

I hope you enjoy your day! 

Until next time,

Mixed Feelings for Sure...

I am not one to post much about politic things. I think it's best just to keep my mouth shut about how I feel about politics, because it just starts arguments between friends.

Well Donald Trump will be our 45th president. I have so many mixed emotions about this...

I am scared for the possibilities that he brings with no experience. I am scared that the people who got out and voted were fueled by hate, not change. That they were scared because they are getting left behind by technology, scared because people with education are bypassing them for more opportunities, that social norms are changing and it's not acceptable to them.

I am scared that people think it's okay for Donald to have mocked a disabled reporter, to have said demeaning things about women and it be okay, to be openly hateful to people of other cultures and that being considered American pride.

I want a world for my daughter to be kind, accepting, understanding. We are not all the same, we have different opportu…
