EASTER BUNNY MARSHMALLOW WREATH

Easter Marshmallow Wreath by TheMarshmallowStudio

I’ve been wanting to design an Easter wreath with marshmallows for a long time. I finally had the chance to this year. I couldn’t just make a round wreath with eggs thought… I had to have the Easter bunny make an appearance in it!

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.}

PICTURE PERFECT CAKE

A family that bakes together, stays together!

DSC_0179

 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.

TheMarshmallowStudio.com-5

I begin to write this post as I’m sitting on my porch sipping on a warm cup of coffee topped to the tippity top with Pumpkin Spice Mallows……

If you follow me on Instagram you already know by now how much I love Fall. It’s my favorite season of the year. It’s when the weather cools down, I get to wear light sweaters, bake more, eat pumpkin everything, decorate my house in my favorite warm colors and gear up for the upcoming holidays.

BAKE, FROST & TOP – THANKSGIVING CUPCAKES

Bake, Frost and Top - Thanksgiving must cupcakes

There is a huge number of sweets and dessert recipes to make for Thanksgiving but I like to stick to a classic that is sure to be a hit with little ones and big ones alike. They’re easy to make, easy to serve and they taste delicious. Pre-made individual servings for your guests to grab and go are essential when you have lots of family and friends over  and you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen serving everyone or to have an ever growing dish pile up in the kitchen.

SPOOKY-LICIOUS HALLOWEEN PARTY FOR KIDS + GIVEAWAY

Halloween entertaining with KRAFT Giveaway

Halloween is such a fun holiday for kids and adults alike. Above is a photo from last year’s Halloween. My family and I dressed up as the s’mores family. I made the costumes from felt! My boys love getting dressed up and playing pretend. They also enjoy helping me cook and bake when I’m making pumpkin recipes, ghoulish treats and other Halloween themed goodies. I believe it’s very important to get them involved in the kitchen so they can learn to be independent, improve their fine motor skills, as well as expand their cause and effect comprehension. It’s a win-win; they help me, they learn and they have fun!

Halloween entertaining with KRAFT Giveaway

I recently received a wonderful package filled with awesome goodies at no cost to me from my friends at KRAFT Recipes. The sweetest part of it was that I would also be able to give one away to a lucky reader of my blog. I love when I get to spread the love and share great products I enjoy with you all. Here’s a list of the cool products that I received and will be included in the giveaway package:

MY FAVORITE FALL TREATS!

Trail Mix Crispy Treats with Drizzled Salted Caramel by TheMarshmallowStudio

Oh Fall, how I love thee! Although we are still a few weeks away from Fall, having September finally here gets me all excited for what’s ahead. September is when the weather begins to cool down and we start prepping for the holidays ahead: Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. My boys recognize this time of the year with lots of pumpkin and apple desserts. This month is also when the days start to get shorter. It’s hard to stay energized through the evening when it gets dark outside early.
