Making Cake Pops Happily Blended

Just before Christmas I went out shopping with my Mom for presents and while we were at JCPenney’s we happened upon their kitchen area where cake pop machines were on sale. I exclaimed, “oh my gosh, Ki wants one of these so bad” and it was a sealed deal, my Mom took a peek and for only $15 it was a steal of a deal. Miss Ki was about to open up a cake pop machine and cake pop mix on Christmas Day. It took us awhile to actually get to use the cake pop maker, but finally we made […]

Making Smores by Campfire

If you are a fan of graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate then you must make a habit of making your very own smores by campfire. First you need to collect one roasting marshmallow stick per person. Next you have to have a person equipped to handle fire, start a campfire.  Laying the wood in such a way as shown in image, make sure to roll up balls of newspaper in the center to assist in making the fire start easily. Since the sticks have been collected and the marshmallows are ready to be melted, all you can do now is […]

Shari’s Berries Giveaway Just in Time for Easter

Easter is coming and what should arrive at your house for the love of your life? Shari’s Berries of course! These berries are so delicious and appropriately sized to be a wonderful gift to that special someone this Easter season. My family received some chocolate cherries and strawberries to taste test. It seemed as though the chocolate covered strawberries were the favorite choice over the chocolate covered cherries for the three year old and nine year old. My personal favorite and my five year old sons personal preference were the chocolate covered cherries, because they were just more our style. […]

Tis the Season for Chocolate and Peanut Butter Combined

This month was Peanut Butter Lovers month but let me tell you what, nothing goes with peanut butter like chocolate. Yummy, delicious chocolate. I used to love peanut butter cups as a child, I would put a hole right through the middle of them and eat around it like a donut. I handed down this tradition to my children who do the same thing with their peanut butter cups. I love the idea of creating a peanut butter, chocolate pie to eat on Thanksgiving day with the family. Sweetness is my weakness on certain holidays and well sometimes once a […]

Easter is Coming

SO what do you all do for Easter? Do you have any travel plans? As Easter nears I realize more and more that our family never really has done anything. I want to say that some of my older relatives get together for a nice dinner, usually a ham dinner but really all we do here at our house is search for the Easter baskets that the Easter bunny left behind and hid through out the house. The day is just another day for us, even though I am aware of what Easter truly is, we just haven’t ever done […]
