Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world. Now that the heat of the summer is on, the heat of the oven is now off! That however, does not mean that there will be no more cooking or baking in the Blake household. Nope, it just means that the outdoor grill will be used more often and if the desserts don’t come from the freezer they will definitely be no-bake options.
So just in time for the weekend and in celebration of Father’s Day, this is today’s Foodie Feature
No-Bake Mini Strawberry Cheesecakes made with Reddi-Wip.
I used a box of Jello No Bake Cheesecake mix, fresh strawberries and Reddi Wip to create this easy breezy satisfying no bake dessert.
Following the directions on the box I mixed the Graham Cracker crust with butter and sugar, then using a spoon pressed a little of the mixture into the bottoms of 12 muffin cups.
In a bowl, I poured in 1 1/2 cups of milk then added the filling mix, whipped on low for a minute and then on medium speed for another few minutes until thickened.
Topped each Graham Cracker Crust cups with filling and refrigerated uncovered for an hour
Washed, cored and sliced several strawberries to top each mini cheesecake but not before first topping them with some whooshes of Extra Creamy Reddi Wip. I love the sound it makes coming out of the can and love even more the fact that there are only 15 calories per serving, so I added 2 servings of real cream to each!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!
I was recently featured on the website “Fabulous After 40”, and chosen as “Glam Gal of the Week”, (click the link to read in case you missed it.)
I was also selected along with two other ladies who we weren’t afraid to wear the color red after the age of 40. The red sheath dress that I was wearing was received from eShakti as a product review. Sheath dresses are my favorite styles and even with the the change in weather they will remain forefront in my closet.
In today’s outfit I am wearing a color blocked sleeveless sheath dress from Avon. I gave the outfit an edgier look with the pleather jacket thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill), studded booties and stud and spike accessories.
Remember when I purchased this Spike Necklace/Earring Set on my birthday at Rugged Wearhouse for a $1.00 on clearance?
Stud & Buckle Booties – Ross
House of Dereon Bag – Burlington Coat Factory
Last Friday I also wore a color block sleeveless sheath dress purchased from Ross with a pair of suede over-the-knee boots and long knit sweater.
These pictures were taken at at Camera’s Etc in Newark (pardon the drunken eyes)
I believe these rhinestone embellished boots were also purchased a few seasons ago from Ross.
As you can see, I have no intentions of putting away my sleeveless sheath dresses anytime soon.
How about you, what are your wardrobe items that you’ll wear in any season?
I was inspired by Transatlantic Blonde in wearing footless tights with a dress, and they were purchased at Target.
Today I am linking up with What I Wore Wednesday with The Pleated Poppy, come on over and meet some new bloggers.

Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!
Recently, I read an article that had suggestions on the products that you should and should not buy at your local Dollar Stores. I agreed that buying party supplies and paper products was a good idea and with not buying toys which may contain high levels of lead. Purchasing cleaning supplies saves money, but I only buy name brands because some of the others are watered down which makes them a waste of money.
The only statement in the article that I did not agree with was that food items should never be purchased. Granted there are some items in a Dollar/99 Cents store that shouldn’t be purchased because of it’s obvious non-compliance with FDA’s regulations, however, there are a lot of products that I would and have bought at Dollar Tree stores.
The state of the economy has forced us all to be more frugal but my sons are trying to eat me out of house and home! They are always snacking and can easily polish off a large bag of chips in one sitting…wonder where they got that from (lol). Therefore, I am always on the hunt, usually with coupons in hand, in search of snacks that they will eat and be satisfied without breaking the bank.
That’s where Dollar Tree comes in, and it has always been my “go to” store for snacks, even when the boys were small, it was the place to stop before going to the movies. Not all products are sold in all stores and I was surprised with what I found in their freezer section, taking note that packaging was clearly marked Made in the USA, (The Bronx, NY, Altoona, PA, Pennsauken, NJ and Rancho Cucamonga, CA). There are many name brand products made specifically for non-grocery type stores as evidenced by their sizes, however, the quality remains the same and manufacturer’s coupons are accepted.
