Low Fat Mexican Manicotti

Low Fat Mexican Manicotti
2 cans fat free refried beans
1 pkg taco seasoning
14 to 16 manicotti shells uncooked (whole wheat if you can find them)
2 (16 oz) bottles/cans green taco sauce
1 cup low fat mozzarella grated cheese

Stuff mixture into uncooked shells. I use a plastic baggie with a cut corner. Then squeeze the mixture in both sides of the manicotti shell.

Lay stuffed shells into a 9X13 pan. Mix the green taco sauce with 1 bottle of water. (Use one of the bottles the sauce came in.) Pour sauce over manicotti, cover with foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from heat and sprinkle with cheese. Put back in oven until cheese is melted without the foil this time.

Garnish with green onions, olives, tomatoes, and cut up lettuce.
Happy Cooking!

Valentine Brownie Pizza


We are huge pizza lovers and have passed this pizza loving gene on to our kids!  When we thought it couldn’t get any better, we found pizza in a brownie form! Are you kidding…shut the front door!!  Our 2 favorite foods in one recipe!  :)  Doesn’t get any better than this!  You will love this fun brownie pizza for your Valentine parties.  Get your kids involved  by letting them add their own pizza toppings.
Valentine Brownie Pizza Recipe
The brownie crust is our Fudgy Brownie Recipe.
Brownie Pizza Crust Ingredients:
8 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt
Grease 2 pizza pans (12 or 13 inch pans).  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Melt margarine. Stir in cocoa.  Mix sugar and eggs in mixing bowl.  Stir in margarine and cocoa.  Add vanilla, flour, and salt. Spoon half of the batter into  the greased pizza pan.  This recipe makes 2 brownie pizzas.  Cook one pizza at a time.  Bake 17 minutes.  Let cool completely.
Frosting Ingredients:
1 pound powdered sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk
Red food coloring
Combine frosting ingredients and mix well until smooth. Add enough food coloring to get your frosting as dark as you want it for your pizza sauce. Frost cooled pizza. Don’t go all the way to the edge so that the brownie will show for your pizza crust. This will frost both pizzas.
Pizza Toppings:
4 ounces almond bark (shredded)
Mini Oreos

Make and share holiday memories with the FREE OneDay App!

A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to one of our favorite free apps:
The OneDay App.


Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 12.38.20 AM

We received so many positive comments and emails about how much you loved this app that we wanted to share with you some of the upgrades and changes that have happened with the app since that post.

First of all, this app is currently still FREE, so hurry and download the app today!


Now, with the holidays right around the corner and Halloween just days away, I know that most of you are going to be running around like crazy with final preparations and making sure that everything is ready for the perfect holiday season. But really, isn’t the holiday season a time to make some special memories? Holidays were always my favorite time of year and now with this app, it’s easy to record those memories in a matter of seconds.

Let me quickly explain what the OneDay app is all about . . .

OneDay is a free app that you can download on your phone or tablet. And I promise- it’s incredibly user-friendly.
There are many different themes for different ages (from babies to grandparents- they’ve got you covered!).

First, decide what you want your “story” (a.k.a. recorded memories) to be about.


Depending on which story you chose, you will be prompted with the question to ask the person being interviewed. Push the red button to start recording.


After you are finished recording the answer to the question, push the red button again to stop recording. Click “save” to keep the short video (or delete it and do it again . . . as I have done many times!).


You can continue to record more questions or you can save this story for another day to finish later. When I have made these videos, I usually ask 3 or 4 questions in a row . . . I figure that I have my child’s attention and that I had better take advantage of it while I can!


Once I feel like I have enough content, I exit out of the questions and click play. It takes a couple of seconds to stitch them together and add some music, but within less than a minute, you have a little piece of today that you will cherish forever! The best part about this app: it’s so easy to use. You don’t have to do any editing or have a degree in graphic design- the app does all of that for you.


From here, you can email the video to family and friends, upload the video to YouTube, share it on Facebook, or do anything else with it that you would like to. It really doesn’t get any easier than that!

And just in time for Halloween, they have released a couple of new Halloween questions . . . you can check out me asking my son those questions here:

My favorite video was the one I made with my 2 year old daughter –  she has watched me make a couple videos of each of her older siblings and wanted to get in on the action. Of course, it wouldn’t work to ask her questions, so I quickly browsed through the different stories available and noticed that there was a section for babies and toddlers. They were simple and sweet and there is an option to flip the camera around so that she could watch herself while we recorded her. Anyway, her darling video is one of my favorites (is there anything better than a happy, clean baby fresh out of the tub? I think not!):


The holidays are incredibly busy, but there are so many magical moments that you won’t want to miss – this app will help you record those special memories and have them forever. And since the app is completely free, you definitely will want to add it to your phone or tablet!

*At this time, this app is only available on the iPhone, however, the Android app is in development and testing and is expected to be released in early 2015! We will keep you posted. In about two weeks, you can sign up on their website to be on an email list to be notified when it’s released.
