Does this Insecurity Make me look FAT? and a AWESOME Giveaway!!

  I remember in Jr High thinking, Why am I here?  I am nobody, but a nerdy, curly haired, big glasses freak.  Thinking what is my purpose?  Letting my insecurities and self doubt totally get the best of me.  Yes, I have come along way since then, but I still let those insecurities get the best of me all the time.   The title of this book says it so well exactly how we feel when those times creep in.
I feel very fortunate to have gotten my hands on this book, but only as a loaner.  It is a new release by a brand new author Michelle Wilson with an official release date of  December 30th. Although you can order it now here as an early release.  It says it is a preorder, but they are shipping them out now.  
Isn't the cover so adorable!!  
The first sentence had me hooked..
"Every day women are bombarded with temptations, demands and decisions on the outside and troubled by unrealistic expectations, doubt and fear on the inside"
How often do you find yourself in that situation?  My hand immediately goes up.   I feel it all the time!  This book is so good.  It will have you laughing and crying, reflecting and pondering as she takes you through life stories that you can totally relate to while teaching you how to important you are and how to deal with these pesky insecurities and self doubt.  
Some of the things she addresses are:
Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms?
The laundry doesn't cry when it's not folded so why should I?
Can I be confident even if the elevator calls me fat?
This fun easy to read book is AMAZING!!  It is both humorous and insightful. A must read for all women.  I am ordering my own copy and You can order your own copy by clicking here.
Because I LOVE IT SO MUCH.. I have personally purchased a copy that will be signed by the author for one of you my AMAZING and INCREDIBLE Readers!!
To enter follow the directions below:
GOOD LUCK!
The author Michelle Wilson is truly beautiful inside and out.  I have watched her quietly come to the aid of others on tons of occasions in self less service and being the recipient of that service myself many times.  She is an amazing speaker and teacher. I have watched her spend many hours, hard work and sleepless nights working on this book. She is proof you can make your dreams a reality.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
