No Bake Cheesecake Recipe

A friend on Facebook sent me a recipe for a quick and easy no bake cheesecake recipe. I decided to make it for dinner last night. Here are my results after eating :)

This recipe is super easy and fast to make.
1 8oz brick of cream cheese
1/3 cup of sugar
2 tbsp of Jello ( I used strawberry) or you can use some kind of juice such as lemon
8oz of whipped topping

Mix everything together and put in a graham cracker crust.  It was ready to eat within 15 minutes. My family loved it and it didn't last the night.

I was amazed at how good these felt. The pair I choose was lace trimmed. They felt so good it was like wearing nothing. I honestly loved the fit and the feel of these. It was way better than wearing those ugly bulky pads that are so irritating. I am going to have to have more of these. I liked the not having to worry about minor accidents that happen when you sneeze or cough. Let's face it, for most women, as we age and have children, incontinence become a part of life. I have tried the pads but they are so bulky feeling :(. I tried the undergarments but it was like wearing a diaper. Even those ones that are supposed to look and feel like underwear don't. Those were so fragile that I ran my fingernail through them. Wearever really is underwear that fits great and helps with leaks.  I like that they are washable so you can use them over and over. They come in a wide variety of styles so you can choose whatever suits your personality. I am so glad someone came up with this idea. Best of all, the great people at want to give you a chance to find out for yourselves. Enter the giveaway below to win a pair of your choosing.  Ends September 30th at 11:59 pm. You will have 48 hours to answer my email or I will choose another winner. US only

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Peanut Day and the Elvis Sandwich

Peanut Day is celebrated each year on September 13 across the United States. I was born in Georgia so I take my peanuts seriously :) I remember once in the Plains area seeing just fields and fields of peanuts. Peanuts aren't really nuts but are legumes. They are also cholesterol free.  I love any sort of peanut butter flavored sweet and I am very fond of peanut noodles. Not long ago I was a Kroger and had a clearance on their brand of peanut butter. I bought 13 jars and we are down to about 4.  I love peanut butter sandwiches with either jelly or banana on them. I haven't tried the Elvis sandwich but I keep saying I am going to.  Here is the recipe for anyone who wants to try it out

Elvis Sandwich
2 slices bread
2 slices cooked bacon (cut in half)
2 tablespoon peanut butter
1 banana peeled and cut into slices
soft butter

take a slice of bread and spread the peanut butter on it add the banana slices. Top it with the cooked bacon. Put the other slice of bread on top. Coat the outside of both slices of bread with butter and fry in a skillet until the bread is toasted and the peanut butter melts. Its about 2 minutes a side.

Garcinia Cambogia Review #garciniacambogia

Thanks to Tomoson I was able to review Sonoma Nutrition's Garcinia Cambogia. I have heard about this product for years but haven't tried it. I know that as of yet, there still isn't that magic bullet that will just miraculously cause weight loss but for me, this product worked great. I would take 2 pills before breakfast, and 2 again in the afternoon and I wasn't constantly snacking. My appetite was down at meal time and I have been eating a lot less. I think as long of you combine this supplement with a sensible weight loss plan and moderate exercise that it can give you that little extra to help you out. When I am dieting my biggest issue has always been snacking too much.  I will keep using #garciniacambogia because it worked for me.

Clinically Proven To Work

Revolutionary research has shown that Garcinia Cambogia provides the following benefits:

- Increases weight loss by 2 to 3 times what a person would lose with just diet and exercise alone
- Blocks fat production and turns fat into glycogen, which helps burn fat
- Suppresses appetite and curbs cravings 
- Increase lean muscle mass
- Increases serotonin, leading to less emotional eating, improved mood, and better sleep
- Reduces cortisol, the stress hormone, leading to decreased belly fat
- Decreases bad cholesterol and promotes healthy cholesterol 
- No side effects

Formulated For Maximum Weight Loss

Doctor recommended guidelines specify that HCA is absorbed better with mineral salts such as Potassium, Calcium, and Chromium. 

Some manufacturers are saying that Calcium and Chromium prevent the absorption of Garcinia Cambogia, but it is actually the opposite that is true. Our formula is specifically designed to increase the bioavailability and efficacy of HCA.
