Drunken Berries or Drunken Cassie?

All day while at work all I wanted
was fruit. 


Then when thinking about making homemade pizza for dinner I 
thought of these!!! 

Recipe: Drunken Nutella Berry Tartlets!

1 package of sheet pizza dough
about 1 cup frozen berries or fruit(microwave
for 1 minute and pour over alcohol of choice
until its kinda soupy)

What I did was: First I microwaved my frozen berries in a bowl for about 1 minute. I then poured SkinnyGirl Margarita over them so that they were swimming in it. Next, I cut the pizza dough into squares to fit my pan(24). I placed them in the circles. Next I spooned in Nutella with my (clean) fingers in each cup. (Hubs doesn't like berries so i put more nutella in his). On top of the ones
without berries, i dabbed a little honey in them for sweetness. I then put my berries in each cup along with a little of the juice. I also poured a little juice in the hubs' too. 

They looked like this:

Then after preheating the oven to 350 (My pizza was in the oven so I just kept it at that)
I then put my tarlets in on the top rack. I think they were in there for about 11-13 minutes. 

I took them out when the tops of the dough was brown. 

Use a mini spatula or if you don't have one a small fork to get under 
and lift them out. 


Cooked they looked like this:
I served them on our heart plate!:) 


While we had date night on OUR couch,
eating homemade pizza
with the dog at our feet

Bad Mom: Good Mom

For anyone who reads this, 
I've been a BAD MOM. 
I'm sorry i've neglected you. I make sure to read my favorite blogs of course,
but when it comes time to write mine, eh, i find some more blogs to read. 
Well I am BACK! Or at least trying to. 

Here at the Kimler Residence we have stayed pretty busy. Mostly busy with our
Lucky for me, she was labor-free but cute nonetheless. 

Imagine you and I meeting for coffee, hot tea or perhaps a nice glass of 
Pinot Grigio,
You ask me what I have been up to, hows the hubs, what's life like these days and then you
ask about the girl that wakes me up every am for her potty break or at night time when she wants to be cuddled. I show you these!

Enjoy my friend!

 *While we eat dinner, she sits pretty on her (safety) blanket and waits for us to finish eating. Such a good girl

 * This is me snuggling with the hubs and she wants to join, You'd think she'd be an over sized canine like feline. I promise, she's 100% Canine.

 * I do Laundry and ask her to sit and this is what she did. Sits right behind me while I fold our laundry. Then i throw a favorite toy of hers, and stupid mommy, she jumps right on top of the nicely stacked clothes. Oh Well, no need to cry over spilled clothes right?

 * Our beauty of a girl. She LOVES her balls, and any toys. We are teaching her colors and shapes of her toys. I know i know... colors and shapes? Yep. Next we are told to teach her her numbers by using flash cards. Line up here for our Kahuna to do your next years taxes. Much kid Much Kid. (I hope)

 *Around the holidays I was pretty sick, first with a nasty kidney infection, ER visits, multiple doctor's phone calls, and EXHAUSTED. This is the product of me sick and Kahuna comforting. Not to mention I then had the stomach flu for a few days.

While I was sick with my very painful, uncomfortable and not enjoyable kidney infection
we were looking in the market for a new car for me
as working with clients in and out of my car, that being a two door
almost made it impossible for my 
limbs to stay attached. 

Each time a client got in and out of my car, I would have to 
help them out. 

Say 6 clients throughout the day,
in and out
of 3 stores each
 one with a walker,
three with bad backs
one with a knee brace
and one who is just well...mobile.

Yep, that weight on my shoulders and back were getting old. 
Don't worry, my wonderful Chiropractor was able to reap the benefits of 
my job/car.

I found what I'd call, if I were to have one. 

So we drove to Cedar Rapids, 
me sleeping in the passenger seat, and my lovely hubs driving
to trade in my sweet Cavalier (flip flops and all :( )

For this BEAUTY. She's not BRAND new
( Come'n smart bloggers. Two twenty-somethings, new (old) house, two student loans,
Type-1 Diabetic, medical bills, LIFE

But she is new to us and we LOVE her. 
Meet My HHR!!

We had a great holiday with both of our families. We are so blessed to have so many that love and care for us. Who help us in so many ways, and who love us regardless. 
I know this is belated, but we hope you all had a GREAT new year and hopes
that 2011 Bring MANY MANY more great moments.
