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!
Spring is upon us and the festivities are underway! Have you gone on your first Easter Egg hunt of the year yet? Have you prepped your kids’ Easter Baskets? If not, check out this easy recipe and include these yummy treats for your little ones.Continue Reading
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.
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.
I’m here to confess my love for cookies and cream; It’s kind of an obsession…
Cookies and cream ice cream, Hershey’s bars, milkshakes, cheesecake, you name it; I’ve tried it. Oh, yeah! Fried Oreos. Goodness, I love those too!
But let’s talk cupcakes. It’s no secret that I love cupcakes too. They are so much fun to bake, frost and decorate. The possibilities seem to be endless! I had been thinking of these for a few weeks now and finally found the time to give them a go.
Can I just tell you how yummy they are? They have an Oreo at the bottom, Oreos in the batter and are topped with a yummy cream cheese frosting and of course, Oreo cookie crumbs. The best!!!
It’s a cookie overload and you have to make these!
My good friend over at Young at Heart Mommy told me about Zevia a few weeks ago. So, I decided to give it a try and I was amazed at how great it tasted. We are loyal Whole Foods shoppers so I was excited when I found it on one of my most recent shops. I purchased a few 6 packs and decided to see what our friends thought at Bunbun’s Birthday Party. Since then, I have only been drinking Zevia when I am craving those crisp, refreshing bubbles of carbonation. What makes it even better is that it is GMO free, clear of any coloring, all natural, zero calories, no artificial sweeteners, and the best one….NO SUGAR! Which means I don’t have to say no when Bunbun or my little guy ask for some. Total Win!
My obsession with cannoli filling is something fierce! We can’t even go to an Italian restaurant without ordering them. And for some reason, I think the kids may actually love them more than us. Sure, Publix sells them pre-made. It’s just not the same! It took years for me to finally find a place that makes them the way I remember them tasting as a child. Oh Gosh! Just thinking about them makes me salivate. I literally licked the bowl on this one…
