Kitchen “Pop of Color” Plus $100 GIVEAWAY!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Wayfair to be a part of their “Pop of Color” campaign that they were doing!

So when they asked if I would like to pick out some things that would add some color to a room in my home I knew I was on board! Plus they wanted to giveaway $100 credit to one of my readers so how could …

Texas Sheet Cake

In our family Texas Sheet Cake is a staple. It is made more than boxed brownies and is consumed faster than any cookie. My absolute favorite is a slice of Texas Sheet Cake with a scoop of homemade peppermint ice cream! (Oh great my mouth is watering…) I know I could go on and on telling different stories about this dessert but all you need to know is that it is made on the stove top, is very easy, and is amazing. Best thing you can bring to any sort of “pot luck” event.  Just trust me! (And the picture …

Homemade Soft Artisan Beer Pretzels

I have always been a huge Krusteaz fan! We use their products almost weekly. Especially their waffle and pancake mixes. So when I received a package from them I was so excited to be working with a company that I already knew was a hit in our house! As I looked through the package I noticed a box of “beer bread mix” that was one product of theirs that I had yet to try! I wanted to make something new but yummy! And then I realized that soft pretzels would be just the pair for this bread mix and boy was it …

Buffalo Chicken BLT Pitas

I feel like a lot of my inspiration for my family, life, and blog posts come as I lay in bed at night. And that was exactly what happened with this fun and yummy meal plus a few others that will be featured in the following weeks! It had been one of those long days! I had deep cleaned my house and then when my kids were home from school we had some friends over to play for a few hours. My clean house was not so clean anymore, my dinner didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped, and …

St Patricks Day Meal

It feels like all over Pinterest during this time of year is fun things to eat, craft, or decorate for St.  Patricks Day. I always pin a million things and plan to do them with my kids but rarely does it ever happen. (Hopefully I’m not the only one) I was out of town with my kids while my husband worked the days leading up to this holiday. So when I returned home I was exhausted, had a pile of laundry to do, and was trying to pick my battles. So the unpacking and laundry was set aside to make this fun …

The absolute yummiest Baked Spaghetti

Whenever someone calls, text, or emails me to ask me if I have a recipe for a certain thing and I don’t it becomes my mission to try out and create a recipe for what they are looking for. And that is exactly what happened with “Baked Spaghetti.” One of my closest friends asked me if I had a good baked spaghetti recipe the other day and I had to tell her no but just wait and ill figure out something. With a house full of young kids spaghetti for some reason is a dish that they all inhale! I …

My baby girl turned 1 and for her big birthday bash we had a fun popcorn bar featuring Kernel Seasons seasonings and movie theatre butter! We had regular popcorn, kettle corn, and caramel corn.

Either mixing flavors that should never be mixed or dumping almost the entire container of seasonings on their small serving of popcorn! I think a popcorn bar is such a fun and easy thing to offer at a party! Bonus is that you can make the …
