    This or That Challenge

I have to make it my own in some way or another and this recipe is no different. This Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup came out of a lot of trial and error and is the combination of about 3 different recipes. To some, recipes are strict instructions but to me, they are the foundation for inspiration to create my own flavors. I love to take pieces and parts from different…

    Breast Cancer Awareness- What to Do and What Not to Do

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to help spread awareness, I want to share some information about this disease that takes so many lives each year.

It doesn’t matter how large or small, I can worry over it like my life depends on it. I have just always been that way. In school, I worried that people didn’t like…
