Ok, we all love bad boys but they are not all BAD and sometimes BAD is OK. You just need to find an Enchanted bad boy.!!! Let me explain the difference. The Enchanted bad boy is ok looking, not over the top. He is fun but can sit down and have a conversation that is interesting and he doesn’t just talk about himself or brag but he also has some depth. He has charisma and he knows how to use it but he’s not deceitful, that would be a very bad boy not to be confused with an Enchanted Bad Boy.

Now I can hear you all saying if he has charisma he is going to be a dick. Not true! If you really define what charisma is, it is being comfortable in your own body and having knowledge of what a woman likes to hear, knowing how to court a woman and look into her eyes with an expression that will make her melt because he feels it too or he would not pursue her then. If he did pursue her then he is not a bad boy, he is a dick.

So you see the problem is not with the men it is with women’s perception of what women think they want and what they should want. So women, if you haven’t figured it out yet go to counseling!

Now me.... I find the men vamps and the werewolves HOT. That is my kind of Enchanted bad boy. He knows how to talk to women, can have an in depth conversation, but can be a bad boy in the bedroom. Anybody out there a True Blood Fan???? The Chicks are going to start having True Blood parties and we will keep you updated on the latest. Join us....WE all like to do something BAD, once in awhile!

The BAD BOY. *sigh* I can't help myself sometimes. I mean really, I'm the Vintage Girl. I'm supposed to be a good girl because my mom raised me to be good but when a bad boy crosses my path I melt like an ice cube on hot asphalt! This vintage girl suddenly turns into a smitten girl! What IS IT about these men that draw us in? Their charisma? Their ability to smooth talk their way into any situation? Their looks? Heck sometimes they don’t even have to have the looks. They know just what to say, how to say it and who to say it to or should I say who to target? Us girls love it because for that moment there's an undeniable hot passion and who doesn't love passion?!

Now see, the trouble is, I'm a Gemini. I get bored easily and I need to be kept on my toes and when it comes to those sexy bad boys who act like they wouldn't give you the time of day, it's a CHALLENGE, There's this sick thing inside of me that LOVES a challenge and I’m on that like there’s no tomorrow! What I want to know is if there's a bad boy out there that can keep me on my toes but be the honorable chivalrous man a girl really needs at times.

Okay, Spicy so you're saying i need counseling? Am I really gonna change at 44? Are they really gonna change? We all know it's hard to change a man. My mother always told me to accept a man the way he is because he aint gonna change. So, either I decide to accept the good and the BAD or continue with my search for the perfect bad boy. I could be 85 years old before that happens! Maybe I need counseling to help me accept a man, good and bad for all he has to offer if that's what I like or maybe I will forever dream about the perfect bad boy and end up being that crazy old cat lady in the old Victorian house with tons of funky lawn accessories. I DON’T prefer the latter.

I do, however, agree with Spicy Chick that having a True Blood party will be loads of fun!   Maybe stir up a few True Bloody Mary's, some popcorn laced in red pepper flakes and watch a True Blood marathon!

Yes, even Vintage Chick has a bad side.

Help me....I think I've fallen in love with my s'more

S'mores aren't just for kids anymore.  Try The Enchanted version and you'll never go back!

Here's the secret recipe...

Sit under a full moon...
Take an extra-dark chocolate biscuit cookie (such as Petit Ecolier...the kind with chocolate on one side of the biscuit)...
An evenly toasted marshmallow just starting to melt on the inside...
And a glass of your favorite red wine...

Place the toasted marshmallow on top of the chocolate side of the cookie so the chocolate melts to perfection.  Take one bite of your s'more, chew for a moment, take a sip of your red wine and enjoy the ecstasy.  

So what do you think?  Try it and let us know!

A Moment in Time is that word again.  Our lives revolve around the word "time."  As a famous person once said, "it's the dash between the years that count."  The one we all know for sure is when the dash started, the day we were born, and what none of us knows is when the dash ends.  Sadly, for some of us, it's a very short dash and for others, the dash keeps on going like the Everready Bunny.  In that dash are precious minutes which evolve into 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks in a year, you get the idea.  It all begins with the first minute of each day and how you choose to spend those minutes. The old adage, one day at a time, is so true.  How about one minute at a time?  Live for the moment, in the here and now, because for some of us tomorrow never comes and when tomorrow does come, you can say I took "this moment in time" just for me.  That is the beauty in following the 13 steps each have no regrets.

My friend, Helen, took these incredible pictures of "this moment in time."

Introducing the 13 Steps to the Path of Enchantment

You might be wondering how the steps came to be. Well, it was a typical crazy day and I was being torn in many different directions. So, I decided to stop and take a moment for myself and work on something that I wanted to do for a change.

What really sparked it was when Apprentice Chick was having a tough day and she asked me how to live an Enchanted Life. She asked "How do you live it when things around you are going to pieces?" Good question. The answer is really quite simple,  It starts by making time for me.

I sat down at my computer and the list just flowed out of me. It was like something that I had known for so long but never really put into words. I thought of the things I try to do to live an Enchanted Life. Despite the tough days and the tough situations that we go through, there is always a silver lining. Not only is it in how we choose to "see" it, but more importantly its in how we choose to "act" upon it.

We believe that by implementing these steps each and every day into our daily lives can be our guide to living that Enchanted Life. So, join us on our journey and share with us how you get through those tough times.

There you go. This is how the 13 Steps came to be. Vintage Chick fine tuned here they be.

Nonnies Cooking from the Heart

Some say cooking is a chore.  Some say cooking is too stressful.  Some even say cooking takes too long to get to the end product, but for Italians cooking comes from the heart!   That’s where Nonnie’s cooking came from.   Nonnie was an extraordinary cook whose family took great pleasure in her lovingly prepared meals. A meal was not complete without a fabulous dessert and there were always cookies in the cookie jar.  She believed sitting down and eating meals together (which we might add is something that seems to have gone extinct) was the bond that brought families together on top of enjoying GREAT food and come on, ya gotta love food!

A quote from the book Eat, Pray, Love said it best... "I love my pizza so much, in fact, that I have come to believe in my delirium that my pizza might actually love me, in return. I am having a relationship with this pizza, almost an affair."

And this relationship has no drama!  Nonnie’s recipe box is filled with recipes from generations past.   In fact, the Enchanted Chicks have decided to attempt to cook some of these coveted recipes every now and then and share with all of you.  We can only try to cook as well as Nonnie did.  We know it won’t be exact because Nonnie’s heart is like no other!   So…welcome to Nonnie’s Cooking from the Heart.   We know you'll love the first one, so stick around!

Personal comments from the Chicks:

Spicy Chick:  One of my favorite recipes of mom's was her Wonder Cake!

Sassy Chick:  I loved grandma's ginger cookies the best.

Vintage Chick:   I couldn't get enough of her tea cakes!  The dogs loved 'em too.  Lol!

Apprentice Chick:   Hands down...the Wonder Cake.
