Are you ready for some football? I know I am! It has been a rough week for me as I have been busy with school PTA and Fundraising, but I am ready to sit on the couch today and watch football with my husband! It’s one of our favorite pastimes and I usually make something for us to enjoy.
Mistakes. We’re all human and make them, but sometimes, they really get the best of you and beat you down. Yesterday was one of those days for me. I just couldn’t get anything right! I’ve been working on a craft for the Blog and I attempted to dye something. I hung it out to dry and when I went to check on it an hour or so later, it was completely white again. The color just didn’t take so, I will have to try again another day.
Then, I decided to make my Pumpkin Spice Whoopie Pies. I grabbed my Wilton Harvest Whoopie Pie Pan and couldn’t wait to get started! The first batch rose too high, so I had to start all over. I tweaked some of the ingredients and all was well. I then began my cream cheese buttercream and it was too soft. I had just about had it! I was so frustrated with everything going wrong, that I decided to take a break and re-group. I really needed that, because when I tried the second time, I nailed it!
So, the moral of this story, is never give up. Sometimes, we just have bad moments or days and that’s totally okay. Take a break, brush it off and try again! Always.
This has been one heck of a week! Over the long weekend, we decided to re-vamp our bedroom and go with a coastal theme. What a difference a couple gallons of fresh paint and a trip to Home Goods can be! I absolutely love the new look. It’s so bright and cheery!
Over the weekend, I rediscovered my love for Rocky Road ice cream. I don’t know how we ever grew apart but I am not letting that relationship go ever again. Every girl needs her ice cream!
I officially declare Fall! This morning, on my way home from an appointment, I decided to stop at Dunkin Donuts to pick up some munchkins for my little guy. While in line, I spotted pumpkin munchkins!!! Yes, pumpkin!!! So, in my mind, if they are selling pumpkin everything before September 1st, it’s fall ya’ll!
I can’t get enough of Oreos!!! They are definitely one of my weaknesses when it comes to sweets and I don’t have the willpower to say no to all of their deliciousness. Last month, I posted a recipe for Cookies & Cream Cupcakes which received quite a response. So, I am back this month with a new recipe for you to enjoy.
In Disney’s Descendants, Beast (from Beauty and the Beast) is married to the lovely Belle and they rule the United States of Auradon, which is the United Nation and homeland to all the Heroes and Villains of Disney. All of the villains from the movies are imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost with a magical spell that has been keeping them trapped there. That is…until the villains have children of their own…
As if you’re not already salivating from my previous Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores post, I am back with more! I couldn’t stop at just one and I got totally into the s’mores last night. Literally!
Did you know that the first s’more recipe was published in the Girl Scouts Handbook in 1927? This now popular snack was called “some mores” way back when. And clearly, it’s fitting because you always want more!
I’ve decided to put a twist on popcorn for this years National S’mores Day. Sure, everyone loves popcorn with their movie, but what can be better than s’more popcorn?
This snack is everything s’mores and all you need is a good movie
…and some napkins!
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…
A few days ago, I woke up and decided I was going to cook and bake all day. I’m not sure what lit the fire under me, but it turned out to be an extremely productive day. Aside from my Blueberry Cobbler, this super Easy Monkey Bread was in the oven.
This Monkey Bread smells and tastes just as good as it looks. Lots of sweet, ooey gooey goodness and love went into this one. It is made with Pillsbury biscuits, chopped walnuts, raisins and has the perfect cinnamon to sugar ratio. I could honestly eat the whole thing in one sitting if I knew I wouldn’t suffer the consequences on the bathroom scale the following morning.
Blueberries are quite popular in our home. The kids, especially my little guy, love to put them in their cereal and sometimes, he will request them alone for a snack. It’s the cutest thing! Then again, I think everything he does is cute. Probably because I’m his Mom.
We enjoy shopping at local farmers markets. The atmosphere is so lovely and it seems to encourage my littles to eat healthier. The kids love picking their own fruits and veggies which probably works in my favor as well, because if they picked it, most likely…they’ll eat it! Whenever there is a sale on Blueberries, we tend to stock up. However, after our last trip, I think I may have bought too many blueberries.
