A Day in the Life of a Blogger - It's not all Bon Bons and Gourmet Coffee

Have you ever wanted to go behind the scenes? To see what it's really like to be a Blogger? You wouldn't believe how many people think it's all Bon Bons and Gourmet Coffee. Sure, we do indulge from time to time, but that is definitely not an every day occurrence! Really, THIS is what the behind the scenes look like. Most days are frantic. CRAZY busy! Don't believe me? This was my day yesterday:
6:45-7:15am Wake up, get girls up, get breakfast in the oven,  tell girls to get up again and make sure they are getting dressed and they somewhat match. 7:15-7:20am Take breakfast out of the oven, plate, pour juice, make sure the girls are eating.  7:20am-7:35am Check bags, write notes back to the teachers, get coats on, head out the door. 7:35-7:55am Drive girls to school, kisses, hugs, encouraging words *GET OUT OF THE CAR OR YOU WILL BE LATE!* 8am Return home, breath for just a second then get in the shower and get dressed for the day. 9am Pick MG up from school for doctors…

Creamy Fettuccini Alfredo featuring Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter

Fettuccine Alfredo is my absolute FAVORITE meal. Every time we go out to eat Italian, there is no question as to what I will be ordering. I have always been a bit intimidated to make Alfredo sauce at home, and no jarred Alfredo sauce comes close to being good. What is a girl to do?!? Luckily, my aunt showed me just how easy it is to make a few years ago. Now, thanks toLand O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter it is even easier! All you do is add Butter, Cream Cheese and one package of Sauté Express® Sauté Starter to your pot. Stir until melted. Then simply add Parmesan Cheese and Half & Half and stir until melted. This does take a bit of time, just be prepared.
 In about 20 minutes, you will have a delicious Alfredo Sauce and you didn't even have to chop garlic! Don't get me wrong, I love garlic, but I don't always love the smell of my hands after I chop it. Plus, my girls don't care for a lot of garlic.

Top 3 Fall Fudge Recipes

Mmmm.....Fudge! I absolutely LOVE fudge! It really doesn't matter the flavor, ok so maybe peanut butter is my favorite. Followed closely by chocolate. Then Vanilla. I don't know why but fudge reminds me of cool crisp fall nights. I am pretty sure some of my favorite bloggers feel the same because I keep seeing fudge recipes fill my Facebook feed!  lol
I thought I would take the top 3 I have seen and share them with you today.
First up is this Pumpkin Pie Fudge from Sarah at Hope In Every Season. Oh man! That looks AMAZING! I love how you can see each speck of spice in the fudge. You can almost taste the yumminess just by looking at the picture!
Charlene from A Pinch of Joy shared this Candy Corn Fudge recipe last year and I just had to share it. Candy Corn is one of the best things about fall, we like to nix ours in with nuts. The salty sweet combo is AMAZING! After reading her recipe, this seems SUPER easy to make! I might whip some up this weekend, if I get a chance.
