 You can click on the pictures to enlarge and read the recipes.  The recipes are courtesy of BETTY CROCKER :)

 Before putting in the oven.....
 After.....I also subbed Cheddar & Jack cheese instead of using the parm.I think Parmesan would be excellent, I just know my family would prefer the cheddar better :) It smelled amazing out of the oven.

I served it with rice and burned brussell sprouts ;)

My vanilla collection from Bath and Body. If you have known for any considerable time, you know my go to scent is VANILLA.  I switch it up a lot, and I will share my other scents in posts to come.... but this is what I am using today. I layer them, to get a nice scent throughout the day. That is the key, “layering”

It’s a beautiful picture I have hanging in my newly painted dining room.
I still can’t believe I did it.
