Diva Delight: Red Stamp

It seems these days there is always someone getting married, having a baby or just needing to celebrate themselves. I have absolutely no problem with that and love any reason to toast my diva-rifc friends. Earlier this summer, I stumbled upon the folks at Red Stamp, who offer amazing customer service and fun products. I always get rave reviews from fellow party goers. Who doesn't love that! Check them out the next time you need to be stylize your posts and tell them the Diva sent ya!

Bread Baker's Challenge: Recipe 3

As many of you know, I'm a big time fan of cream cheese and anything that goes with it. It should come as no surprise that I heart bagels. My all time favorite is the Asiago Cheese at Panera. I just love the cheesy goodness slathered with loads of cream cheese. Well this week's bread challenge recipe didn't disappoint. The challenge was to make a plain white bagel, but I veered slightly off course with cinnamon raisin bagels. I'm a big fan of using golden raisins in lieu of the brown shrunken kind. They just plump up better and plump they did with this recipe. These holes of bread genius were great plain or with cream cheese. Next time, I'm going to try and get the exterior a little more crisp, but other than that they were a hit! I've also found an alternative recipe: Jalapeno Cheddar, so watch for that update. Up next: Brioche!

Side note: Mr. Diva was off with the camera, so sadly, you'll just have to take my word that these looked and tasted delicious!
