Crock Pot Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

Are you ready for a bit of comfort food straight from the crock pot?

I hear everything is better with bacon so we made Crock Pot bacon macaroni and cheese to test this theory. And after multiple taste tests by my dear husband just to make sure he truly enjoyed the recipe… :-) he agrees! Bacon does make this recipe even better.

He tells me it is a hard job some days but he will keep doing it. …

Cranberry Lime Cocktail Recipe

Can you believe we are only 10 days away from Christmas Eve! EEK!

This year it feels like the days are flying by quicker than usual for me. I am pretty sure it was just Halloween like a week ago and Thanksgiving yesterday. How in the world is it already time for Christmas and New Years!

My brain is spinning faster than I like to admit and I am running around like crazy trying to get ready for the holidays. The lovely folks at Microsoft decided to help me out this year and sent over the Nokia Lumia 1520 that has my new personal digital assistant Cortana already on the phone.

They figured I could use all the help I could get and Cortana could help me keep my head on straight. I have been meaning to make a new holiday cocktail this year so I asked Cortana for some ideas using Cranberries.
