Tasty treats...who doesn't love them??


Good Monday morning everyone!!! Do you get stressed when you are told you need to bring something for a party/event completely last minute?? I know I do, but there is one thing that NEVER fails and is always a sure hit...Reece's Peanut Butter Cup cookies! Can you say delish??? 

I just recently pledged KAPPA DELTA, and this past weekend for our new member retreat we were told 24 hours in advance to bring a baked good...sooo, I knew this would be a sure hit! Plus, who doesn't love easy treats that everyone thinks are ah-mazing?! This fast and simple recipe is guaranteed to hit the spot at your next party or just if you're feeling generous for your roomie/hubbie/kids (which they can take to school in that cute Monogram Chick lunchbox)

Ingredients/supplies:
  • Reece's miniature peanut butter cups (I just recently experimented with the white chocolate, too)
  • Mini cupcake pan
  • Mini cupcake wrappers/papers (get creative with the designs)
  • Peanut butter cookie dough
    • 1 tube = about 36 cookies
Instructions:
  • Line your pan with the wrappers

Drink in style :)

Hi, everyone! Just wanted to say how much I love our tumblers...especially during this hot, summer season. It's 16 or 24 ounces (your choice) of a quick and cute way to have a sip of your fav drink! Not to mention personalized to your liking, but it is also sweat free and that's always a plus! Our tumblers are double-wall insulated, so you can avoid all of those annoying sweat rings on your desk at work or the coffee table at home. And on the plus side, now you don't have to worry about getting your drinks mixed up. Whenever you get home, just give them a quick hand-wash and reuse as much as you'd like! I'm warning you that they are hard to stay away from and quite addicting! I need one in every color!

You purchase the mug only once, and order as many inserts as you'd like! We also have a pink stainless steel mug with your choice of color for the vinyl monogram.

Good afternoon chickadees! We are thrilled to announce that we have a new chick on our team, Kelsey!

Simple Saturday Morning Breakfast

I love lazy Saturday mornings! Almost as much as lazy Saturday mornings, I love breakfast, specifically fixing breakfast. My weekday mornings are hectic...I'm one of those annoying chicks that hits the snooze button a minimum of 3 times. I get my tail up with exactly 47 minutes to shower and make myself runway ready {a feat with unlimited minutes!} so needless to say, most weekday mornings barely consist of coffee and yogurt. So, when we have a lazy Saturday morning I like to fix breakfast.

I had some left over sausage in the fridge (from my first attempt at meatballs with spaghetti) and I always have crescent rolls on hand, all I needed was some cream cheese--bingo! I had that too! This concoction comes from my sister, Kiki, who loves breakfast as much as I do, specifically, sausage.

Without further adieu...

Kiki's Simple Sausage Crescents

1/4 lb sausage
1/2 block cream cheese
1 tube crescent rolls

Brown sausage. Mix in cream cheese. Use pizza cutter to cut crescent rolls in half. Add spoonful of sausage mixture to "fat" end of crescent and roll up. Continue this until all crescents are used. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
Enjoy!

**EDIT. I apologize for the picture issues, and them being out of order, blogger for iPhone stinks!**

Easy Breezy Cinnamon Roll "Cups"

As much as I don't want to admit this, I've become a real adult.  I've been a pseudo-adult; the pay my taxes & insurance kind of adult, for quite some time now.   But I've crossed over, entered adulthood in a real, official, get up early on the weekend kind of way.  Those of you with mini's are scoffing right now, you're no strangers to pre-dawn Saturday mornings, but hang with me.


Just because my internal alarm goes off before 7 o'clock every-freaking-day-of-the-week does not mean that I'm turning into a morning person.  I struggle to make these early hours my finest.  It does mean that Saturday mornings necessitate breakfast.  Previously, not a meal I typically visited on Saturdays.  I was much more of a late brunch kind of chick.   Since I can be found shuffling around the house with one eye half open, breakfast is best when made easy.

Enter my friends Pillsbury and Demarle.  It is no secret I'm a snob when it comes to the kitchen, I like nice kitchen tools, judge me, I'm okay with that.  You don't have to be a kitchen snob to make these tasty little "cups" you can use your metal muffin pans.  You could probably even add cute little mini muffin cup liners and be way cuter than me.  I'm okay with that too.

To make these super easy Cinnamon Roll "Cups" cut each cinnamon roll in half and press into the mini muffin wells.  I baked mine for around 8ish minutes.  I'm a glutton for punishment so I popped those fiery hot little cups out immediately and slathered on the icing.   They were delish as I lingered over them along with my coffee and Pinterest early one Saturday morning.

Much like a real adult might do.

New Year, New Look, Same Chick!

Wow!  I don't even know where to begin!  Since the last post, so much has happened.  The holidays, of course, came and went in a flurry and then January 12th came.  This was a day we anticipated and prayed about for so long.  A day we knew was coming, a day we had no idea what would hold, a day we knew our Father held in His hands (not unlike every other day).  It was this day, January 12th, that Mama Chick, had a brain tumor removed.

It all started 7.5 years ago.  Six weeks before Dr. Chick and I got married.  I remember where I was exactly, when I got the call.  My mom's call, telling me that her doctors had found a brain tumor.  Events unfolded and we learned that she had a meningioma; a benign tumor in the lining of her brain.  The plan was simple:  an MRI every 6 months to monitor the tumor and pray that it doesn't change.

Fast forward to October.  The MRI showed growth, the MRI showed fluid, the MRI did not show good things about the tumor.  It was time, the neurosurgeon said, to remove it.  Time to remove the tumor that sat in my mama's head, attached to the lining of her brain, just above her olfactory nerve.  The risks were many and we spent 3 and a half months praying, trusting, believing that all would turn out well.  We spent those months praying that the Great Healer would prevent loss of taste and smell as well as that He'd preserve her life.

January 12, 2012 was nothing short of a miracle and Mama Chick came out of surgery with her sense of taste and smell as well as a keen awareness of who we all are and what she'd been through.  Just 48 hours after surgery she was dismissed from the Neuroscience ICU to recover at home.  She was sporting 39 staples that ran from in front of her left ear through her hairline, ending with 2 stitches at her hairline above her right eye.

this is day she came home.  48 hours post brain surgery!

It has been just over a month since the surgery and her progress has been amazing!  Our Honey is here with us, just as fabulous as she was prior to January 12th.  We have so much to be thankful for and praise Him daily for faithfully seeing us through such a scary time.

this was taken last weekend!

So, now that I've brought my chickadees up to speed....what do y'all think of the new look?!  Amid the holiday's and Mama Chick's surgery, Monogram Chick received a make-over.  I love the new colors and site set-up!  Did you notice that even our "chick" received some freshening up?!  She's prep-tastic in her pearls, don't you think?  I mean, honestly, ever chick needs a little something special around her neck, right?

What's your favorite thing you've been wearing around your neck, these days?!
