Share-A-Chef Wednesday

Hi Everyone! I don't know about you guys but the weather here in NY is HOTT! So this week consisted of a lot of inside activities and blogging has been one I have been super busy with! This week I will be sharing a chef that I actually found on a newly discovered blog! Her name is Samantha and the name of her blog is Five Heart Home . Samantha is a wife, proud mama, a first born, and a Type-A Perfectionist. She has been blogging since her first child and she admits that she is not a big talker but she loves writing. I was actually searching for recipes on Pinterest and I stumbled upon her site. After browsing through her amazing blog I discovered her German Potato Salad recipe. I was hooked from then on and I immediately wanted to get all the ingredients. So I hope you all go over and check out Samantha's blog and tell her I sent you! 
What are you guys cooking this week?

German Potato Salad Yield: 4 to 6 servings With warm, tender red potatoes and a sweet, tangy dressing …

Tuesday Ten: Date Night Ideas

Hello there....As the summer reaches it's midpoint I begin to think about my Fall Schedule and everything that I am already committed too! Subbing and working on my masters is going to keep me pretty busy. So for this week I wanted to talk about fun ways to incorporate Date Nights into our already busy, or soon to be busy schedules! I feel like our lives are so hectic sometimes that it is hard to actually commit to time outside of our regular day-to-day routine. This is why it is so important to not only set time aside, but to make your time together worth it! Date Nights don't have to be all the bells and whistles, just a time to connect, and enjoy one another! So, I have gathered ten fun ways to enjoy your next date night.....

1. Take A Walk The husband and I have been doing this on a daily basis since I am home more often this summer! It is a great way for us to talk about our day and to discuss things in our lives! We always have the best conversations during our wal…

Share-A-Chef Wednesdays

I am so excited to share this recipe with you all this week because it is definitely going to be on repeat  in my kitchen. This week I am sharing a recipe from Sandra Lee, an Emmy-nomiated expert in all things kitchen and home. Sandra creates memorable meals, lovely homes, and creative crafts and shows how to entertain in the easiest and most perfect way! She is the host of The Food Network's "Sandra's Money Saving Meals", in which she helps viewers make delicious, budget-friendly meals using fresh ingredients.  She also stars in another show "Semi-Homemade Cooking", also on The Food Network. Sandra is a well-known philanthropist and has a strong commitment to charity and community service. As of 2012, she  has launched several lines of home and garden products. Her home products are entitled, "Sandra By Sandra Lee". This week I will be featuring her "Chicken Cutlet Sandwich with Herb Mayonnaise". 
I hope you enjoy!

Someone New: Interview with Jordyn from The Fairy Princess Diaries

Recently I had the opportunity to interview the very sweet, Jordyn. She is simply one of the nicest bloggers I have met since I started blogging a few months ago.  I actually met Jordan via Instagram, check her out here, during the #JadoreJune challenge. I was so excited that she was able to connect with me and do an interview. I am so grateful for meeting her and following her along in her own blogging journey!


Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog?
Hello! My name is Jordyn, I'm a girly-girl introvert with a love for daisy chains and hopeless coffee addiction. My blog The Fairy Princess Diaries is a compilation of introspective reflection, fashion and retellings of my awkward life. It's generally written with Taylor Swift playing softly in the background and an copious amount of caffeine in my blood stream.
Describe how did you first get into blogging?
I had transferred schools and was honestly feeling really lonely living in a new city with a very oppre…

Tuesday Ten: What I'm Grateful For

As I begin to look back at this year, thus far, and remember all the different circumstances I have been through, I started to realize just how much I am grateful for. The hubby and I have been through a difficult time and we are slowly working through it. This, among other things, has allowed me to really think about the people in my life and the things that I am grateful for. So I wanted to take this week's Top 10 and discuss all the things that make this girl feel truly grateful!

1. My Amazing, Supportive Husband

2. My Favorite Companion

3. Being Called Auntie

4. Our Home Town

5. My Health 

6. My Relationship with my Father

7. My Sister

8. My Education

9.  My Family

10. A Great Hair Stylist
