Chocolate Chip Cheese Cake Recipe

 I saw this video on Facebook featuring this recipe here and thought WE CAN MAKE that dessert! Oh my this Cheesecake recipe is AWESOME!! I will say after making this I prefer to just use the Cookie dough for the crust and not sprinkle it on top. Feel free to make it how you prefer because either way it tastes delicious!
 What you will need:
1 18 oz roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough 
8 oz cream cheese softened 
1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1 egg room temperature 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper or non-stick foil. Set aside. Spread a little more than half of the cookie dough onto the bottom of the baking dish and press down firmly creating an even layer. Using a stand mixer or hand held mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in the sugar and beat until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour the cheesecake filling over the top of the cookie dough base. 
  Sprinkle the remaining cookie dough over the top. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until fully cooked. Let cool completely before cutting into bars. We placed our in the fridge which helped set the cheesecake!
What is your favorite Cheese Cake??

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studio Orlando, Florida

 If you are a Halloween lover like me you may have seen Haunted Houses at Universal Studio Orlando, Halloween Horror Nights advertised. I wanted to give you my opinion because after a visit I have been itching to go back and experience them again! I would suggest getting your tickets online and arriving at Universal Early. This is a VERY popular event.
When traveling I always try and find a great hotel close to the events I will be experiencing. I usually search for hotels with: "Airport/attraction shuttle", "Complimentary breakfast" etc. This trip I stayed at the beautiful Magic Moment Resort! Palm trees, friendly staff, affordable price and it was conveniently located near Universal Studios and Disney!
I don't care how many times I walk into the Wizarding World...each time is special! When you go to the Halloween Horror Nights the Wizarding World is open. I will say it is pretty neat walking around at night time. Just be aware it's popular so crowds do tend to flock in the stores.
Before the sunset may of the workers are dressed up in character. Honestly, it was rare that they would break character (props to them). Most will not stand for a photo it can be known to happen. This particular capture (above) happened after I was taking with my friend and turned to see why he hadn't answered me. This lovely fellow was standing next to me in his place. We both had a good laugh about it but I'm sure my son might have wet himself (he HATES being scared).
 We rated each Haunted House setup in the park based on a "Scare rating". I usually do not "jump" because while I love the idea of being scared (sort of) I rarely jump because of it. When I did I would fist pump the workers and tell they "got me" (three times in total for the night, thank you)! In 2017, my Scare ratings of the Haunted Houses - were as follows
 1. Blumhouse 
2. Dead Waters 
3. Scarecrow 
4. Ashh Evil
*Again these were based off props, cast, details and if I person all got scared or not.
**Hive- was not even rated on my list...
If you visit I urge you to Play this little Scare rating game with your friends. I think it really makes you appreciate all the work that goes into these Haunted Houses and everyone can have fun discussing their experiences! 
Do you enjoy Haunted Houses??

Let's Host Holiday parties with the new LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator with Craft Ice

Fall time is casually coming to the Northern states and I am busy preparing for festive parties. After owning my home for the last 14 years it's time to upgrade my appliances to fit our lifestyle. We headed to our local Best Buy and found this beauty, LG’s InstaView™ Door-in-Door® refrigerator. It seriously has everything I need to become the ultimate home entertainer! I'm talking dual ice makers with Craft Ice™ that automatically create crushed, cubed and LG’s exclusive slow-melting round ice on demand (pictured above), for upscale, craft drinks at home - helping beverages taste their best longer.
I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card to help facilitate my review.  I was not required to give a positive review, all opinions expressed are my own.
Buying new appliances can be so overwhelming while in store. I recommend doing your research beforehand. Also check appliance features. Here are some we loved about this new LG fridge:

INSTAVIEW DOOR-IN-DOOR The LG InstaView™ design lets you see inside your refrigerator without ever opening the door—simply knock twice on the unique glass panel Offering quick and easy access to favorite foods, the popular Door-in-Door® design gets even better with an adjustable bin that fits snacks and drinks of all sizes Bin glides smoothly up and down and locks into place with minimal effort 

CRAFT ICE LG brings one of the hottest beverage trends home with the Craft Ice™ maker that automatically makes batches of slow-melting round ice—without the work No more messing with expensive and time-consuming molds that only produce one or two at a time A game changer for home entertainers, Craft Ice™ opens a new world of high-end drinks and keeps your soft drinks, lemonade and iced coffee tasting their best Additional ice maker on the door produces traditional cubed or crushed ice LG’s exclusive round, slow-melting Craft Ice™ - helping beverages taste their best longer 

FRESH INNOVATIONS Keeps produce fresh up to 2X LONGER* Only LG offers 3 innovative cooling technologies that work together to extend the life of fruits and vegetables and help keep all foods fresh and flavorful Linear Cooling maintains consistent temperatures within 1°F of the setting Smart Cooling uses digital sensors and an array of vents for total cooling control Door Cooling + delivers blasts of cool air that reach all areas of the refrigerator
