M.E. Monday

I happened to be on my Facebook page Sunday and saw that Mary Engelbreit had posted something about her old magazine 'Home Companion'. I hopped over to her blog to see what was up.'s hard to believe that it's been 3 years since she stopped the publication! It looks like she's thinking about "giving it another shot". "So to convince a publisher and advertisers that this would indeed be a worthy endeavor, we need you to write in and tell us why you’d like to subscribe to the magazine again."

So far there are 373 responses left on her blog. If you want to see the magazine back on the shelves you might want to pop over to her blog and show your support by leaving a comment.
She has a new Facebook feed on her blog page, too. It's funny to see familiar faces there. I saw Jeanne, Christy, Dawn, and Terry that I recognize.
Much success to you Mary with the come back of your publication!

I saw the picture for these little darling on Pinterest and fell in LuRvE! A quick Google search and I found the recipe out there on the wonderful world wide web.
I made them this past Thursday night and took them in to work on Friday. Of course, they were a big hit.  I'll be nice and share the recipe. ;-) They're not too sweet...just perfect!


1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, room temperature
1 can (14 oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 can (21 oz.) cherry pie filling


PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Paper-line 24 muffin cups. Place one piece of cookie dough in each muffin cup.
BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookie has spread to edge of cup.
BEAT cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla extract in medium bowl until smooth. Pour about 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over each cookie in cup.

Pinterest Addiction...what is it?

I share with you today an excellent tutorial on what "Pinterest" is all about. I came across this informative blog this morning titled "The Blog Stylist". Bree pretty much explains in easy terms what the Pinterest site is about. A few friends have asked me to explain it. From now on I will direct them to this post.
I learned something new today from having read the post.  If you want to find out if any of your blog or website images have been pinned on Pinterest all you need to do is use this URL, replacing the with your own domain name...
You'll then be able to see where your images have been pinned to. Kinda cool...right?
