Cookie Dough Cheesecake S’mores
I have a question for you. Do you have a cleaning service that comes in a couple of times a month to clean your home?
If you follow my blog, you’re well aware of the fact that Eric and I BOTH work from home. And yes, we’re still married despite the fact that we’re together pretty much 24 hours a day. Minus time at the gym and Target runs.
Despite the fact that we’re both home a lot, we have a lovely cleaning crew come in every other week to clean our home.
It’s not that we’re super messy people. We’re really not.
Okay, sure my closet could use some love and Elle’s toy room looks like a mild tornado ripped through it, but the rest of the house looks pretty clean most of the time.
In fact, I have a little cleaning to-do list that I complete every morning before I do anything else – even before I have my first cup of coffee.
It’s a good way to accomplish something first thing in the morning, which totally sets the tone for my entire day.
And let’s be real, if I’m trying to work while sitting in a messy house, I’m going to find 25 reasons to put the work off until it’s all in order.
But, I also hate to deep clean things like showers and baseboards.
The reason I’m asking this is because I recently saw someone on Facebook looking for recommendations for a house cleaner and while most people were ultra helpful, others took very judgy ‘tudes.
Asking questions like, why don’t you clean your own home?, or I have a full-time job, 3 kids and I still manage to maintain a clean house, blah, blah blah.
You all know that I’m very much a “live and let live” sorta girl, and I’m certain even my mom did a double take at Eric and I having cleaners come to our house when we’re here all day.
But the truth is, just because we’re HERE doesn’t mean we aren’t busting our butts doing something else. This blog is a full time job, and Eric has two jobs; teaching and running his drone business.
Would we really have to go rent office space somewhere else for the people on that thread to think our cleaning crew is justified? That’s just crazy pants to me.
Plus, I gotta be honest. I’d much rather spend quality time with Elle than scrubbing my baseboards clean. I am more than happy to hand that job off to someone that WANTS to do it.
One of the things I’m busy doing? Creating new recipes for you guys, day in and day out.
Just in case you’re new here, I’ve been working with Campfire® Marshmallows for the past few years to create some amazing marshmallow recipes.
We’ve got tons of delicious dishes and desserts from the past couple of years, and so much more planned. I can’t wait for you to see what we have planned for the rest of the year.
These Cookie Dough Cheesecake S’mores? Pretty dang ridiculous.
The cookie dough cheesecake bars recipe has actually been on my site for years, but I thought I’d kick ’em a notch and turn them into s’mores!
You know cheesecake is my favorite thing in life, and topping these sweet bars with a delicious chocolate square and gooey toasted marshmallow is just magic.
We ate them around the fire pit last week when it was actually warm enough to be outside past 8:00 PM. I almost had Elle convinced to try one, but then she realized there was cheesecake involved and backed away.
I’m not gonna get over the betrayal of her hating cheesecake anytime soon, you guys.
So, hit me with it. Are you okay with house cleaners no matter the situation? Or are you totally judging me right now?
Either way, try the recipe. You’ll love me again once you taste these Cookie Dough Cheesecake S’mores, I promise.
