Movie Night Fun

My husband and I don’t really go out very much and with the cold weather here, I would actually prefer to just stay in.  Warner Brothers, Orville Redenbacher’s, and M&M’s to have  a fun movie night at home without breaking the bank.  Right now for a limited time, you can visit your local Walmart stores and find select Warner Brothers’ titles at new lower prices.  Popular DVD and Blu-ray titles are $5 and $7.88.  And while you’re selecting your movies, you can pick up some Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn and M&M’s, to help you create a fun movie night experience.

Guest Post: White Hot Chocolate Cookies by Kathleen at Yummy Crumble

Today I’m excited to welcome Kathleen from  Yummy Crumble.  She is one of several bloggers who will be guest posting here for the holiday season.  And I was instantly in love when I saw what yummy creation she had to share with us: White Hot Chocolate Cookies!  Take a look!

As the weather cools down and I start to see Christmas decorations I also begin to crave those special holiday drinks. Especially hot chocolate. Oh, my beloved hot chocolate. But…Since I live in Florida where the low in December is 75 degrees, I rarely get to sip on my favorite hot drink. So in order to have my hot chocolate everyday, I put them in cookie form! I’ve been seeing a lot of Hot Chocolate Cookies made with dark chocolate and of course gooey marshmallow, but I haven’t seen many White Hot Chocolate Cookies. [Read more...]

Aunt Jemima Waffles

 There’s nothing like hot waffles for breakfast… that soft, chewy confection with the crispy, crunchy edges drenched in butter and syrup, has always been a classic favorite of mine.  And Aunt Jemima makes it so easy a kid can do it.

Making Breakfast

 This weekend Noah made his own breakfast with just the push of a button.  Now that’s convenient!

These days, however, the waffle has branched out.  If you stroll the internet, you’ll find waffles topped with fruit, cream cheese, peanut butter, and even chocolate!  Waffles also make a great bread substitute for your bacon, egg, & cheese sandwich, breakfast casserole recipes, and more!  Recently I bought some Aunt Jemima Homestyle Waffles, and they inspired me to think outside the box (literally)  and create a recipe especially for this fall season.

Halloween Fruit Cup

Halloween Fruit Cups

 

Today I have a super easy treat that’s also healthy, yet festive for the fall season!  This Halloween Fruit Cup is made using the little fruit cups you get from the store.  You could also use fruit from a can, frozen, or even fresh fruit, but the little fruit cups work great for a single serve dessert without any measuring.  It is great for a healthy after school snack, and it is also an easy party treat to prepare.

MMs

Parties and holidays give us a great excuse to get creative with decorations and food.  But you don’t always need a special occasion to create fun and festive recipes! If you have simple ingredients on hand like M&M’s™ candies, you can turn a simple movie night into a fun-filled occasion with movie themed snacks.  Last week I used M&M’s to turn some plain ole’ sugar cookies in to some M&M’s Sugar Cookies inspired by Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier (out now on DVD and Blu-Ray).

MMs at Walmart

At our local Walmart there is an entire shelf, filled from top to bottom with M&M’s products!  Which ones doe you like?  The original and the minis are my favorites, but you could use any variety in today’s recipe.

Walmart also has a $5 off coupon for any two M&M’s products (15.4 oz or larger) and Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier DVD.  (Movie, snacks, and a deal…it’s a win-win all the way around!) [Read more...]

Frozen Raspberry Pie

Today we have our final guest post of the summer series!  Today’s comes from Amy at Joyful Daisy and she is sharing a delicious looking Frozen Raspberry Pie.  I don’t know about you, but I love pie any time of year, and this recipe certainly sounds like a dessert for all seasons!

Frozen Raspberry Pie

This delicious Frozen Raspberry Pie is a delightful mix of flavors and textures. The raspberries combined with lemon juice are so fresh, the whipped egg whites and whipped cream are so light and fluffy, and the toasted almonds in the crust adds the perfect amount of crunchiness. The other thing I love about this pie is that it can be made ahead of time. [Read more...]

Kid’s Desserts: Triple Chocolate Sundae Cake

Back to School with Cool Whip When I was a kid, I could hardly wait for an after school snack.  Often this meant stopping by to get a hamburger or ice cream on the way home from school, but there was nothing like coming home to eat a homemade dessert!  My dad used to make such yummy recipes, and he made this one chocolate layer cake that was to die for!

The Cool Whip Icing was definitely the star of the cake, so today I’m sharing this icing with you, so that you can see how adding a little Cool Whip can turn your ordinary dessert in to an extraordinary dessert! [Read more...]

Game Day Food: Roll Tide! Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits

Jello University Kit

My family is very excited for football season to be starting!  My husband has already explained to me that the television station will be glued to the SEC Network, so that if I don’t want to watch sports, I can plan accordingly and go to the next room. Haha!  But actually I really enjoy football and I especially love watching our team the Crimson Tide!  And I also look forward each week to game day food!

We usually order out or make something early that will last the day, and game day food is generally “man food.”  We like appetizers, especially chicken fingers and wings! But we also sometimes go for things like meatballs, sausage balls, cocktail weenies, cheesesticks, cheese fries, or chips and dip.  And other times we like simple meals like sub sandwiches, grilled burgers, chili dogs, pizza, and barbecue sandwiches. Yes, we do love to eat!

As much as I love all the salty and spicy goodness of game day, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t crave something sweet!  So today I am sharing a simple dessert that you can prepare to make your game day even sweeter!  I took my recipe for strawberry pretzel salad and turned it in to a kid-friendly game day treat: Strawberry Pretzel Parfaits.  And I added a little extra team spirit to the treat using Jell-O University Molds!
