Dessert You're Craving Now: Bread Pudding (Video)

Bread pudding is exactly what we're craving to warm our chilled bones and add a touch of sweetness to our lives. Women have been on to the merits of bread pudding since the 11th century when they used stale bread scraps to make the earliest versions of this gooey treat. Watch Chef Cheryl Dent in the KD101 test kitchen whip up a modern version with vanilla butter sauce, raisins and pecans that will get you through these cold winter months. Waste not, want not!

The Target Busy Family Project

 Put a New Spin on Breakfast at Target!

We all know that breakfast is an important start to your family’s day, but all too often, it’s rushed, hectic, and…monotonous.  So what can be done to make breakfast a little more delightful and fun? Target and Platefull Coop sent me several items to get creative with a make a fun and delicious breakfast.

Target Busy Family Banner

Cereal with milk and fruit is our typical breakfast.  I love the idea of spicing it up with Nutella and peanut butter.  Both are huge hits in our house.  Granola bars with peanut butter or Nutella on them are spectacular.  The oatmeal is great when it's super cold outside on days like today. 
See all the fun stuff we got from Target?  The Nature Valley Protein Granola is my favorite new food.  We haven't ever had it before and now we will always keep some in the pantry. 
 I didn't know that Nutella had single serving packs, they are really a hit here too. 

Trix cereal has always been a family favorite.  We also enjoyed the new Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch.  Both are yummy and filling too!

Grandma Hoerner's Big Slice Apples snacks go great in the oatmeal.  They make it sweet without adding sugar. 

Our favorite afternoon snack is a granola bar with Nutella or peanut butter on it.  Sometimes we put raisins on top and call them bumps on a log.  A great way to sneak in some fruit.
Starting February 16th you can find special ideas and savings at

Frozen tots get a major overhaul in this recipe for made-from-scratch tater tots featuring Parmesan and garlic (and only three other ingredients!). Okay, sure, tater tots aren't exactly the most highbrow of foods. But, just because they aren't the fanciest doesn't mean they aren't delicious. We all (hopefully) have had at least one perfect batch of tater tots -- golden, crispy, and seasoned to perfection. >>RELATED: How To Make Potato Gratin Without a Recipe ...Read More

Eyes Wide Open by Ted Dekker

Eyes Wide Open

by Ted Dekker

A Novel

My name is Christy Snow.  I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.  I'm buried in a coffin under tons of concrete.  No one knows where I am.  My heart sounds like a monster with clobber feet, running straight toward me.  I'm lying on my back, soaked with sweat from the hair on my head to the soles of my feet.  My hands and feet won't stop shaking.  Some will say that I'm not really here.  Some will say I'm delusional.  Some will say that I don't even exist.  But who are they?  I'm the one buried in a grave.  My name is Christy Snow.  I'm seventeen and I'm about to die.

First in the newest series from Ted Dekker, a master of suspense, whose books have sold 9 million copies, Eyes Wide Open is a raw adrenaline rush from the first page to the last.

About the Author

Ted Dekker is a New York Times best-selling author of over thirty novels. Heralded as a "master of suspense" by Library Journal, Dekker has sold millions worldwide, establishing himself as one of the most widely recognized author brands. Dekker was born to missionaries and grew up among cannibals of Indonesia, and his peculiar upbringing gives him a unique perspective outside the cultural bubble, allowing him the freedom to share provocative insights in his fiction. He resides in Austin, Texas with his wife and children. You can find him at and

I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book to review.  I have to say it was a page turner.  I couldn't put it down.  I read the entire book in one weekend.  I loved it.  I haven't read Ted Dekker's work before but I am now a huge fan of his writing.  The book is excellent.  I hate predictable stories and this one is super suspenseful and never predictable.

Hulaburn DVD Review

I love to workout at home so when I saw the commercial for Hulaburn I had to get it.  I emailed the company and they were nice enough to send me a copy to review so I could share my findings with you my readers.  This morning I popped the DVD in and got started with this fun new workout.  I didn't put on shoes just got a big glass of water and hit play.

The DVD starts out with a warm-up and instructions for the basic moves.  The instructor Kahealani takes you through each of the moves slowly and demonstrates them.  She gets you moving and grooving right from the start.  After we go through the moves one time slowly then we add the arms in.  The moves are simple and quite effective at getting that core stronger and more fit.

After you get the moves down then you are able to start the different phases.  There are four phases and then a cool-down.  This workout is a lot tougher than I expected it to be.  There are countless lunges and squats.  Each exercise is separated by the hulaburn signature moves.  I was sweating and had a hard time getting through to the end.  Even though it is difficult it's fun and I can't wait to do it again.  I know that I am going to be sore tomorrow.  I will take a day off tomorrow and then come back to this workout on Saturday.
Kahealani (ka-hey-a-loni) has created this special training style calling it a fusion between hula and contemporary fitness techniques.  It seems every workout concept out there has been created by men for men.  There are a few differences in men and women in case you haven't noticed!  Most notably hips!  What would it be like to combine those amazing hip movements from real authentic hula with a heart pumping workout?  The results have amazed even me. 

Right now you can get free shipping on your order with the code - freesusn this code will work from now until Saturday.

Just go to and order use that code upon checkout to get free shipping.

End Your Cravings, Eat Well and Live Better

Remember the old Lays® Potato Chips slogan “Bet you can’t eat just one”?  Psychologist Rhona Epstein says we all have foods that can trigger overeating.  Food Triggers shows how to work with your body chemistry to gain total freedom from such impulse eating.
A licensed psychologist and certified addictions counselor, Epstein brings insights learned through her own battle with addictive eating to deliver tangible action steps to overcome eating issues.  It is written for people who are currently battling an unhealthy relationship with food.  Food Triggers is full of practical applications from Scripture, genuine compassion and true stories of struggle and success.  This book helps readers understand that addictive eating is a physical, emotional and spiritual problem that must be addressed on all three levels in order to achieve true freedom.  Food Triggers isn’t just another diet book; it is truly a food addict’s roadmap to the Promised Land—the land of success, peace and total freedom.

I have recently lost over 100 pounds.  I struggle on a daily basis to keep from overeating.  I realize that I am triggered to eat when I feel sad or stressed.  Boredom is also another big trigger for me.  Also I know that if I eat sugar then I am attracted to more sugar throughout the day.  I think that food is the hardest addiction to overcome because you have to eat.  But with God anything is possible.  This book will help the reader identify their own triggers and it offers a way to gain freedom from those impulses.  I am very impressed with the book and I highly recommend it.
