While watching The Addams Family with my littles this past week, I knew I had to make Frankenstein cupcakes as a pre-Halloween treat. They turned out exactly how I envisioned and the kids were ecstatic to eat them!

These PEEPS® Rice Krispies Treats Pops are a fun and easy Easter treat for everyone to share!
We love Rice Krispies Treats and actually purchase them in bulk (don’t judge me). The kids love them and to be quite honest, if you look at the ingredients; they aren’t all that bad. I wanted to make something fun for the kids this Easter and thought, what better way than to pair my favorite PEEPS® with my Rice Krispies Treats! You like that rhyming technique? Skills.
Happy New Year! I know I have been a little disconnected lately, but I promise it’s been all for good reasons. I spent some much needed time with my family over Bunbun’s “winter” break. Although there is no such thing as winter here in South Florida.
Thanksgiving has always meant so much to me. I have fond memories of our family being together around the table and sharing memories. I could listen to them laugh for days. It’s just pure happiness! I miss those days. They would be hectic, but we were together and that was the best feeling for me growing up.
Things have changed over the years. Everyone kind of does their own thing now and smaller groups of us get together to share the holiday. With everyone being in different cities and states, it definitely puts a strain on our big family gatherings.
Wow! I can’t believe we are less than a week away from Halloween already! Bunbun has decided to be Frankenstein this year. I’m not quite sure where this idea came from, but I find it cute. Her class did an activity for Halloween called, “Guess Who I am?”. The kids drew a self portrait of themselves and described what their favorite things are from Halloween. Such as favorite activity, candy and/or treat. Then they write what they will be for Halloween and the others guess who is who. Bunbun’s was a dead giveaway for me when I noticed it on the bulletin board. Her self portrait was a girl with pigtails, colored green, with stitches on her face. I knew it was Frankenstein!!! Or as she labeled it; “Franken Girl”.
It’s National Dog Day and I rewarded Sophie with her very first BarkBox! BarkBox is a monthly subscription box for dogs that includes lots of goodies for your fur baby, tailored to his/her size. Each box usually includes treats, a chew and a toy. Each month, Bark Box chooses toys, healthy treats, and toys that are sure to keep your pup entertained. Should you want to entertain your dog more frequently than once a month, you may also want to look at the likes of different DogeToys toy review articles so you’re able to keep up to date with everything new that your dog could enjoy around the home, garden or on a walk. You can have a little look at the treat selection as different treats can be more suitable for different dogs. For example, if your dog is a border collie/pitbull mix, a more meaty treat would be suitable rather than a corn based treat (source).
The boxes depend on the size of your dog and since Sophie is over 50lbs., she received the Big & Bold box. Each BarkBox is $29 a month, or $19 a month with a 12 month subscription. You can also add an additional premium toy for an additional $9 per box.
Happy National S’mores Day! I’ll be honest, I had no idea that the snack had an entire day dedicated to it but I’m not complaining because it’s one of my favorite parts of camping! My family and I all love going camping and we always try to go on a camping trip at least once every 2 months because it’s a briliant way to bring the family together. While we do look on campingfunzone.com to find the best gear we should take with us, we also make sure we pack enough s’more ingredients to last us the trip because it’s not camping if there isn’t s’mores! But the American camping tradition definitely goes beyond tents and sleeping bags. Everyone loves a good S’more in the winter, but who says you can’t indulge year round?
I’ll be posting two yummy recipes for you today and maybe even something a little special to go along with it…
