Quick Bagel Bites

I am always on the hunt for something quick to make on those busy days where you have to work late or your just way to tired to actually make something fancy. Bagel bites are something that I have eaten since I was a kid. I would always see the bagel bites commercial on tv when I got home from school so my brother and I were so excited to eat them as a snack when my mom finally caved and bought a box from the frozen section at the grocery store. Since then I have upgraded and now make my own quick homemade version of the frozen treat. It’s not as fast as opening the freezer and placing the frozen treat on a baking tray in the oven, but it’s still quick and equally as delicious. All you need are english muffins, my favorite are from Trader Joe’s, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and all of your favorite toppings.

Ingredients:

  • English muffins
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Tomato sauce (any brand will do)
  • Black olives
  • Garlic salt
  • Red chili flakes

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut each english muffin in half (one muffin makes two bagel bites).
  3. Before I put the sauce on each half of muffin, I like to sprinkle so either garlic powder or garlic salt onto each muffin for some add flavor.
  4. Spread about a spoonful of sauce onto each muffin half.
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top.
  6. Now the fun part, toppings!! You can add whatever toppings you like. I prefer olives, a little bit on onions, and sometimes I will add pieces of pepperoni or pancetta.
  7. Once you add your desired toppings place in the oven for 10 mins or until all the cheese as melted.
  8. Enjoy!

I hope that you enjoy my quick treat for those days that you just need something simple!

Hair straightening brush

How many of you have seen this device floating around the internet over the past couple of years? Well I finally decided to bite the bullet and try it out. Surprisingly I actually liked it, minus the off putting chemical smell that comes from this particular version that I bought from Amazon. If you want perfectly straight, frizz free hair, then this is not the device for you, I would suggest getting a flat iron. My favorite is the CHI, I have been using mine since high school. This straightening brush is for more natural looking straight hair with a little more volume than a flat iron would give. I find that it takes about the same time to do my hair if I use this device or if I use a flat iron. I have curly, wavy, frizzy mixed hair so this device is perfect for me when I want my hair to look more put together.

One of the things I like the most about this device is that you can control the temperature. Some people find the automatic heat settings on devices too hot, and with this you can us a higher or lower temperature setting based off your personal preference. The one negative about this is that you can get close enough to straighten out your baby hairs, and mine are curly so I have to use the flat iron as well.

Overall I don’t think that this is a device that you need to run out and purchase, especially if you already own a flat iron, but if you are looking for something new or if you had wanted to try this then I don’t think you would be disappointed with your purchase.

Here is the link to the one I bought but there are so many versions out there. I advise you to look at review on amazon before you pick one to buy! hair straightening brush

Happy New Year!

I know! I Know..it has been a million years, but I am back. I hope you all had an amazing 2017 and start to the new year so far. One of my major resolutions for 2018 is to start blogging again. Life got the best of me last year, and between moving and facing new challenges in my life I just lacked the inspiration and time to blog. One of the things I like to do at the end of each year is to reflect on what I can do better or be better at in the next year. For me one of the things that I really missed doing was blogging, because it was a way for me to create and share as well as show my creative side, and a fun way to write and interact with the world.

So hears to all of us doing our best to fulfill all of our resolutions for the years as best as we can. I know that life happens and sometimes it can be hard but if we push through we can achieve all of our goals! Cheers to the new year and I hope you all have a great 2018!
