Tropical Berry Fruit Pizza

Fruit and Pizza usually isn’t a favorite combination of mine. I am more of a meat lovers with some mushrooms girl but when you consider turning the pizza crust into a sugar cookie then i am all game! I am a huge lover of fruit and a even bigger lover of sugar cookies. In our family when it is your birthday you get to pick what the whole family eats for Sunday dinner. Everything from the sides down to the dessert. Fruit pizza has been my dessert pick for about 2/3 of my birthdays I would say. My mom usually …

Lego Love and a Lego Birthday Party

Lego Love and a Lego Birthday Party

Legos are every moms dream. Well at least they are my dream toy! I was having a conversation with my cousin the other day and she asked me how I do it all with two crazy young, high energy boys at home. I told her one word…legos. My sons went from only sword fighting and throwing axes and shooting nerf guns and bow and arrows at each other to sitting down together and playing legos quietly. Legos allow my sons to be creative and use their imagination. Two things that I value highly in my home. Although my boys are …

A SPECTACULAR Peter Pan Party!

How to Throw the Perfect Peter Pan Party! With my sons birthday only a few weeks away it reminded me that I have yet to post his past two birthday parties. Honestly I think it was my very favorite party that I have ever thrown. My kids have always been suckers for Peter Pan, Captain Hook and Tinker Bell. Peter Pan is almost always the first ride of the day when we go to Disneyland and is usually also the ride with the longest wait time out of the smaller kid rides. But we go on it over and over …

Ninja Turtle Party

Ninja Turtle Party

Throwing parties has been in my blood since I was a young girl! I loved having parities, helping my mom throw parties, or throwing parties for my friends. And as I have become a mother I have enjoyed putting extra effort into my kids parties. The themes chosen have mostly been their own choices (which is not always my favorite) but I have made it what they want it to be! After I went to IFBC in Seattle last month I have been deciding what direction I want to take the blog. I have been wanting to expand my horizon …

Halloween Food Ideas

Halloween Food Ideas

I feel like with Halloween food it is all about getting a good visual ideas of fun and festive Halloween foods. Here is a collaboration of a few Halloween foods that I made last year! Most of them aren’t much of a recipe but just a vision. So if you have any questions or need any more info let me know and I will send it on over to you! Halloween is one of my favorite times baking in the kitchen with my mom. Majority of these dishes come from her. We have our annual “spooky dinner” the Sunday before …

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip

I am the biggest buffalo fan you will ever meet! I love it on anything and everything! So when my mom made this dip for our “Oscar’s” party I had to have the recipe!

I feel like when you are throwing a party or something it is always good to throw in a good yummy crockpot recipe that doesn’t take too much time when you are trying to get everything else done! Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Dip 3 Tablespoons …

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Thank you everyone who enter the Wayfair giveaway! The winner is…Melissa Moore! Congratulations and enjoy your $100 to Wayfair!  Spinach and artichoke dip is my absolute favorite. I will go to certain restaurants just for their dip even if I don’t care for their main dishes as much. It beats any dip out there for me…which is dangerous.  This dip was no exception! Creamy and delicious! So when I received a large box full of food should taste good chips I whipped up some of this dip and sat down and ate it all! haha I know I am pathetic. Then of course …

St Patricks Day Meal

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 …
