KEIRAN’S COOKIES & MILK PARTY

Cookies & Milk party by TheMarshmallowStudio.com

My son was turning 3 and we wanted to celebrate it with a party like we always do.

However, since our new home is almost done being build and we are trying to save as much as possible, we needed to come up with a way to celebrate on a budget but not skimp on the wow factor.

I had all kinds of ideas – hot dog bar, nachos stations, donuts party, snacks and refreshments…. I finally decided on a “Cookies and Milk” party.

FUN-DUE!

Fondue Valentines_TheMarshmallowStudio4

 Although any day is a great day for some fondue fun, it seems like it’s extra popular during Valentine’s Day. Perhaps because it’s a fun way to enjoy a meal with your loved one or because it’s so versatile that you can fondue just about any type of food.  You can use it to melt cheese and dip veggies, put hot oil and fry meats or with many hot dips. Little ones, teenagers, parents, couples, seniors…. anyone can join in the fun so it’s awesome!

SLOW COOKER CHOCOLATE CHIP MARSHMALLOW COOKIE

Slow Cookier CCC_TheMarshmallowStudio

 I’ve heard of all kinds of unusual foods being cooked in slow cookers that had me intrigued. We all know the usual meals that can be cooked in slow cookers: soups, pot roast, casseroles, etc. but have you heard of cookies? I’m all about trying new things in the name of dessert so I decided to give this idea a try.  Seriously, being able to put it all together and walking away to do other things while it cooks is such an amazing concept! Whoever invented this appliance is a true genius.

{RECAP} 2013 – AN UNBELIEVABLE YEAR!

2013 TMS Recap

At the end of every year, I like to take time to look back and reflect on what was  blessings and adventures occurred during that time. I do this with my personal life and with The Marshmallow Studio. You really learn a lot about your strengths, your weaknesses and it helps set new goals for the upcoming year. For me, doing annual recaps of each year on this blogs has helped me document the growth in my marshmallow skills, and my marketing abilities. Oh and to see the progress of my photography and Photoshop skills too which have a long way to go still haha.

{PLEASE NOTE: Below each image there will be a link you can click to see the full post for that project which will include additional photos and details.}

 Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday. In my house, we really go all out. For the whole month of December we bake, we cook, we drink, we laugh, we listen to Christmas music, and we make lots of memories. There are so many Christmas recipes to choose from out there that it makes me wish there were more days in the month so I could try them all. One thing is for sure, I will be making my famous (maybe just famous in my family haha) bacon quiche for Christmas breakfast and then I’ll try something new for dessert – cake balls! Wish me luck.

{RECAP} 2013 BOOK TOUR

This post is way way overdue.

I owe you guys pictures from my mARTshmallows book tour.  Although I have already written about the major events and shows I attended as part of my tour, here are the details to the other stops that I missed.

I’m bringing you to San Diego, New York, Miami, Hollywood and Dallas.

mARTshmallows Book tour

Let me start off by saying that I am extremely appreciative of each and every single person who helped me organize my tour, came to see me, helped me spread the word, and supported me with encouragement on my pics and status updates I posted along. You guys all rock!! I am so very thankful to have you in my life. Book tours aren’t all glitz and glamour and can be very scary to take on as a self-publisher. Luckily, our was a total success!

I’d also like to thank my husband, my parents, my mother-in-law, Rocky and Melissa for helping me with the boys. I could not have done it without you!!!!

In 5 months we made 10 out of 12 scheduled appearances — WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

My friend Jasmine from Idea Event + Style is the fabulous designer who introduced me to her gorgeous art prints. Yesterday I showed you the one I loved for Fall and now I’m going to show you the one that touched my heart.
