Philly Cheesesteak Lasagna by PinchMeTwice.com

As 2015 comes to a close, I thought that it was very important for me to reflect on the progress that my blog has made. When I first started PinchMeTwice, I was using this blog as a way to push myself to cook at home more, as well as monitor the progression of my baking and cooking skills.

Prior to starting this blog, I would eat out way more than I should, and I packed on the pounds as a result. 3 months after this blog began I started my journey to lose weight. And although many of the recipes I post are not exactly healthy, cooking at home has allowed me to monitor my food intake better, as well as lose almost 40lbs this year. I would encourage anyone to make the effort to prepare their food at home instead of getting take-out, because it is well worth it.

I just so happened to come across a simple recipe and I decided to give it a try. I was about 8 years old and so I don’t remember much, but I know that somehow the cookies I made came out super moist and decadent.

This year I decided to participate in the 5th annual Food Blogger Cookie Swap. After making a donation to the Cookies For Kids foundation you are assigned 3 other bloggers to send cookies to. Reminiscing back on my childhood, I chose to make these Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies.

Jambalaya Pasta from Orleans Seafood Kitchen

This past weekend, my best friend Nikki and I went on a trip to Houston, TX. Our motivation for visiting was mainly to check out the vibe of the city, as we both are considering relocating to this area. We were able to dine at a few eateries, and everything we had exceeded our expectations.

I was starving after being an hour behind schedule due to a delayed flight. Nikki was already there because we took separate flights, and had already secured the rental car. So in my hunger I immediately wanted to go to Frenchy’s Chicken.

This Thanksgiving is going to be pretty low-key for my household. My husband and I have been non-stop busy for the past few weeks, and we both decided to just enjoy our holiday at home. No traveling or house hopping — we’re just going to take it easy. I’m going to be making a meal with only a few dishes and I decided to make what I call a Sweet Potato Pie Cheesecake for our dessert. I made this cheesecake early so that I can share it with you all.
