Hi there!

Hey lovelies, welcome to SDB! I'm Natasha. I am a walking, talking mombie fueled by coffee. I am obsessed with shoes, all things glittery and/or sparkly, and I have an owl obsession. We talk about everything from motherhood, lifestyle, and all things inbetween. I am a mom of three kids and we reside in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks for tagging along! Now lets sit back and sip on a cup of coffee in the AM or wine in the PM and lets relax.

Butterscotch Vanilla Lava Cake

My husband wanted something sweet for dessert and kept hinting about the chocolate lava cake I made last Sunday for Valentine's Day. Instead of chocolate overload, he want something different and suggested I make a lava cake with butterscotch. He loves butterscotch almost as much as I love chocolate! He suggested I make it with a vanilla cake and vanilla pudding so I did. I will warn you that this cake looks ugly but is incredibly delicious and rich. I have linked the original recipe that I found on Pinterest here. I just substituted the chocolate for vanilla. Both are equally delicious. Here is the recipe to my husbands Butterscotch Vanilla Lava Cake.


Vanilla cake mix 
1 1/4 cups milk 
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 cup coconut oil (or canola oil)

Instant vanilla pudding mix (serving size 4)
2 cups milk 
1 bag butterscotch chips 


1. Mix together cake mix, 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, coconut oil, and 1 1/4 cups milk until smooth. Spray crock pot with Pam or other cooking spray and pour cake mixture into crackpot. 

2. Mix together pudding mix and 2 cups of milk until blended and pour on top of the cake mix. 

3. Pour bag of butterscotch chips on top and cook on high for 2 and 1/2 hours. The top layer will be sponge-like and the bottom layer will be nice and gooey. 

Enjoy, this cake is yummy but really, really ugly. I promise it's good. Serve it with vanilla ice cream.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping bye. Enjoy your day.

Crockpot Cream Cheese Chili Dip

My husbands mom makes the best dip for family functions. My husband really wanted to make her dip for today's Super Bowl game and he called her up early this week to get her recipe. Seeing as our Seahawks aren't playing today, we are cheering on the Broncos for today's big game. Here is the recipe for Crockpot Cream Cheese Chili Dip but I added my own little twist to it. I give it a nice little kick cause I like my dip spicy.


2 cans Hormel's Chili
1 can Nelly's Chili
1 package Cream Cheese 
2-3 jalapeƱos, remove seeds and chopped
1 can diced chili's


1.  Pour three cans of Chili into crock pot and add package of cream cheese. Cook on low for 2-3 hours. Stir occasionally.

2. Chop two jalapeƱo peppers and add diced chili's to dip.
Serve warm and with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
