Welcome to Leanne’s Life

  Welcome to Leanne’s Life! I’m BACK in the blogging world after several years away. I started blogging in 2005 when I went to Hong Kong as part of the Grand Opening Team for Hong Kong Disneyland. My sole purpose then was to update my family and friends on my overseas adventures. Plus, I had so much…

Frozen Yogurt Bars

I’m grateful I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. Unfortunately for me, I’m much more of a salty, crunchy, carb girl. But I still enjoy that little bit of sweetness as a night-cap before bed. My latest favorite dessert of the day is the Yasso Frozen Yogurt Bars. I’d never heard of this product…

This recipe I just “invented”…

Breakfast Casserole

I created this recipe to mimic my favorite breakfast meal, Jimmy Dean’s Delights Turkey Breakfast Scramble Bowl, which I love! Even though I’m an early morning riser, up usually around 5:30 a.m., I still don’t seem to find time to make a hot, fresh breakfast so the frozen meals were/are a perfect solution. It hit…
