I personally have a good credit score and doing my best to keep it on the right track so by the time we are ready for our house purchase, we won't be much worried with our mortgage. Building it up is not that hard because I only spend what I need and what I can afford to pay. This is one key to get perfect credit scores.

I love holidays for one sole reason, baking. On Christmas its tree shaped cookies and platters, Thanksgiving is turkey and pie and Halloween it is candy and delicious cookies! This year I went all out for my baking session, I set up an old Halloween movie on one of the channels from ExpertSatellite local channels list, bought a bottle of wine and took out 10 cookie sheets! My husband never seems to want to indulge in this fall activity with me but I happen to enjoy it very much.
I always make a tray of ghosts, 2 of witches, 2 of goblins and the rest pumpkins. While the cookies are baking I mix up two batches of orange and yellow frosting for the cookie toppings. Once the cookies are fully cooked I add a light coating of frosting and a pinch of sprinkles for decoration. The cookies always turn out fabulous and truly tasty. Next year I think I might switch to either cupcakes or pumpkin seeds. I heard pumpkin seeds are quick, easy and very delicious! Although my husband might not like the switch, I think it is time for one!

Getting my daughter into the kitchen to help cook healthy, fun meals are so important to me. The time we spend together is so special, and being able to teach her new and innovative recipes I have gathered is just another perk. Recently, I was watching a wonderful cooking show on satellite TV from www.bestchoicetv.com/directv-programming.html and found a new recipe for us to try together. The result was a fantastic, fresh and healthy dessert the entire family loved. My 5 year old daughter face lit up as her father and grandfather praised her wonderful cooking abilities. It was wonderful to see the pride and self-esteem we had created in her together, through some kitchen bonding, raspberry sorbet, whipped cream and fat free vanilla pudding.
First, I had my daughter help me take out a carton of raspberry sorbet. We let it sit and thaw while we talked about her day at preschool and discussed the new colors she was learning about. We compared the pink shade of the raspberry sorbet to her favorite pink stuffed piglet. When the sorbet was soft, we spooned it into a foil lined loaf pan. We then mixed together a 12 ounce container of whipped cream, the fat free vanilla pudding and one cup of milk until it was thick and frothy. We then spooned the mixture over the top of the raspberry sorbet and placed it in the freezer for three hours, or until it was firm. My daughter and I then removed the dessert, turned it over so the foil side faced up, peeled the foil wrapping off, and voila, there was a beautiful raspberry dessert. We topped with additional fresh raspberries and served it after dinner. It was a hit!
