Birthday Cake Fudge

This is a favorite of a dear friend so I make it for her every year.


1/2 cup unsalted butter

2 cups granulated sugar

3/4 cup full fat sour cream

1 tsp. salt

12 oz. pkg. white chocolate chips

7 oz. jar marshmallow creme

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup dry white cake mix

Sprinkles for decorating


Line an 8″ square pan with aluminum foil with non stick cooking spray. In a heavy sauce pan over low heat, add the butter. Stir constantly until the butter melts. Turn the heat to medium and stir in the granulated sugar, sour cream and salt. Stir constantly while making the fudge. Cook until the fudge reaches 235° on a candy thermometer. Stir in the white chocolate chips and marshmallow creme. Stir until the fudge is smooth and combined. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the vanilla extract and white cake mix. Mix until well combined.  Pour into the prepared pan and decorate with sprinkles.

This amazing exoskeleton is helping people with paralysis walk again

This sounds very promising. I am not able to exercise right now because of the baby, but before I got pregnant I used a standing frame. It’s a device that holds me up in a standing position and exercise. It’s really important because bearing weight on my legs reduces the risk of osteoporosis and muscle wasting. This seems like it would achieve the same result, but it would be more fun to actually walk somewhere rather than just standing in place Gazelleing.

Not Rotisserie Chicken

Rotisserie chicken is very convenient,  but sometimes it’s hard to find one that is gluten and msg free.  Thankfully is very easyto make in a crockpot and cheaper as well.



1 whole chicken

1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons paprika

1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder

1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme

1⁄2 teaspoon dried basil

1⁄2 teaspoon white pepper

1⁄2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper

1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons olive oil



Rinse chicken and pat dry. In a bowl, combine spices and rub over entire chicken. Rub part of it underneath the skin as well, but try to leave the skin intact. Place it in a greased or lined slow cooker and drizzle olive oil evenly over the chicken. Cook on high for 3–31⁄2 hours or on low for 4–5 hours. Save the carcass to make chicken stock later.
