Delicious (& easy) Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars

How many of you watch those recipe videos on Facebook and drool over the food but never make it yourself?  I always think I will, but alas, the posts sit in my "saved" file.

Well, this week, this beauty of a recipe came up as I was scrolling my FB feed....Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars!!  I mean, seriously??!!??  It just so happened that I was online ordering my groceries for pick-up....meant to be. Ordered the ingredients I needed and that was that. I only have a couple of days more on leave from surgery and I'm feeling strong enough to do more, so perfect timing!

The recipe was everything it good and easy!  You can find the video here:

This would make a great treat for your Easter celebrations this weekend too!

A Lump in the Road

Life has taken a bit of a detour for me of late....a bump...or lump in this the road.

A month ago today, a "highly concerning" lump was found in my left breast. After biopsy, it was found to be Stage 0 DCIS.....the best of the worst diagnosis. After much prayer and consultation, I'm scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction in 2 weeks.  Obviously, my crafting and DIY posts and projects will be a bit limited for awhile.

However, I'm still around....and I'll have plenty of time stuck at home in bed to plan some new projects!!

If you or anyone you know might find it helpful to read about my breast cancer journey, tips and hints along the way, etc., please come see me at It's a Bosom Thing @
