I’m pretty stoked that my sugar friend, Norene, wrote a book. Since I first learned about her blog, Party Pinching, I’ve been a loyal fan mesmerized by her cleverness and creativity. She’s like the sweet genius behind cute food!
For The Love Of Cheese – and peaches and marshmallows!!
This month I was asked to create a recipe celebrating cheese-filled entertainment recipes for Kraft Recipes. For the Love of Cheese… well, that’s the easiest thing I’ve ever been asked to do since I absolutely love cheese…. all kinds of cheese. From the stinky, tangy flavor of Bleu cheese to the creamy sweetness of Brie and even the simple Monterey Jack, I could eat it all day, every day and never get tired of it. I think cheese goes particularly well with bacon (hahaha what doesn’t?!) There are so many kinds of cheese and even more ways to incorporate it into meals. The possibilities are truly endless!
I love giving away goodies on my blog!
You can rest assure that every brand, product or book I endorse is truly because I love it. I promise you that I will never pass on to you something just because I received some sort of compensation to do so. With that said….. I am very very excited to be giving away a copy of Jenny Keller’s (AKA JennyCookies.com) Eat More Dessert book.
When I started playing with marshmallows in 2010, I did lots of research to find anything and everything that related to marshmallows. I was surprised to find there were no children’s books that included marshmallows.
Fast forward four years…. I finally found one and it is everything I wanted it to be like!!
Woohoo!!!!!!!!!! My favorite month of the year is here
February is awesome for many reasons -
My birthday, Valentine’s Day, my son Keiran’s birthday, it’s the shortest month, and I get to eat lots and lots of fancy chocolates and sweets.
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!
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:
If you’ follow me on Instagram, you know I am in love with French macarons. There’s something just exquisite about them. They are crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. You can make them in all kinds of flavors, shapes and colors. Definitely one of my favorite cookies!
I’m pretty excited about this post because I get to giveaway a copy of Gourmet French Macarons by my friend Mindy Cone! I also get to share with you one of my favorite recipes in the book Woohoo!
I’ve got triple goodies for you today……….

Huge thank you to everyone who participated. I look forward to doing lots more giveaways.
A few months back we wrote a guest post for Eye Candy Event Details in celebration of their 1st year anniversary. Well, the lucky winner was Donna O’neil and she decided to cash in her prize with marshmallow pops for her daughter’s birthday party.
The theme was “Dinosaurs” so she picked our Dino Fun designs and ask to customize it a little to fit her party.
So our design went from (left) regular dinosaur to (right) cute girly dinosaur! (more…)
