Meal Plan Monday


It’s rare anymore that I blog about food. Since getting married, becoming a stay at home mom and the little’s in school. There is so much going on in my life right now but I’ve managed to spit this post out for you!

Fall is here and it’s my most favoritest time of the year (Yes I said favoritest). Chilly weather, fall colors, pumpkin everything and comfort food. It’s officially time to say good-bye to summer and I can’t wait to welcome fall and its wonderful scents.

What I love most about fall are the warm rich desserts fresh from the oven that are devoured by my hungry esophagus. I rarely think my digestive tract minds either.

I’ve decided to start a series of post where I share an item, “favorite” from my meal plan, for yours.

These Oreo cookie bars can be made many ways. However, I argue that my way is best. Just kidding.

I do hope you try these. Tuck them away at least. For that obnoxious moment when people invite themselves over. Arrgh. You know you have them.



1 package of cookie dough enough to cover the bottom of your pan (8 oz)

1 package of Oreo cookies

12 oz. Cream Cheese, thawed

1/2 cup of sugar

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

Line a 9 x 13 pan with foil

Spray your baking sheet with cooking spray

Spread the cookie dough on the bottom of your pan and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins or until fluffy and golden

Remove from the oven and cool. Place Oreo’s on top of cookie dough while cooling (when firm enough) and press a little for the cookie to push down into the dough.

Prepare filling by mixing the creamed cheese, sugar, vanilla, and egg and pour on top of the cooled cookie crust.

sprinkle on top some crushed Oreo’s and a few chunks of Oreo’s and bake for 35-45 mins.

Remove from oven and cool completely.

Please Let me know how these turned out for you!



Homemade Cherry Pie Bars

Who doesn’t love a great dessert??

I don’t think anyone can actually answer that with a straight face. In fact, if I could eat dessert everyday I would..but don’t tell my boys!

I’m always so busy these days so I am always looking for something good to prepare that’s easy and yummy. I’ve found a keeper for my list of “dessert crack.” Yup, this is one you’ll put down and think about every second until you pick it back up. So good you just might slap yo mamma. But please don’t. LOL!
