Peanut Butter Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

I am thrilled to partner with Orajel™ Kids to share my thoughts on childhood tooth health. As always, while this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have a GIANT sweet tooth. Like I think my whole mouth is nothing but sweet teeth because I crave sweets all the time. My children, especially my daughter, definitely inherited my loves of sweets. Now that she also loves to be in the kitchen, we do make a lot of treats together. Right now, her favorite is rice krispie treats but, of course, I had to change them up a bit so we made peanut butter nutella rice krispie treats in addition the regular ones.

Pinworthy Projects Party

Happy Friday! My how the weeks go by so quickly these days. I guess the holiday on Monday definitely made the week seem even shorter. I’m trying to squeeze in as much sunshine time as I can before it gets too hot so I’ll keep this short and sweet.

Let’s start off with features!

Blueberry Mojito

Blueberry Mojito | Blue Crab Martini

Summer is just about here, and you know what that means? It’s mojito season!

Traditionally, mojitos are a rum based drink made with fresh lime and mint leaves. But summer fun calls for breaking tradition from time to time and that’s just what this month’s cocktail is all about!

Hi everyone, it’s Christin from Blue Crab Martini and I’m back with another delicious drink recipe that’s sure to whet your whistle on the hot summer days ahead. Rum, fresh berries, more rum, crisp mint, and did I mention rum?? The Blueberry Mojito is a fresh and flavorful drink that’s sure to cool you down when the mercury’s on the rise. [Read more…]

Hidden Vegetable Chocolate Smoothie

I am excited to partner with TruMoo to bring you this recipe. As always, even though this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have a family who struggles to eat vegetables. My son will eat 3 avocados a day if given the opportunity but won’t touch a piece of broccoli or any type of squash. Although he tries to set a good example, Mathlete isn’t much better when it comes to eating his vegetables. So, I try to sneak them in by making things like a hidden vegetable chocolate smoothie.

DIY Chicken Wire Message Board

Pin

My husband has been asking to build a garden full of fresh vegetables for a long time now. I have always been in favor, but we could never find a place for it. After thinking on it for awhile, we found a spot in the front yard and Matt got to work.

He up-cycled old pieces of wood, our wonderful neighbors gave us some dirt that was left over from their front yard project, we bought some chicken wire to keep the deer out. Then we all went and picked out the fresh, organic veggies….beans, watermelon, strawberries, lettuce, cucumbers.

Oh, I can’t wait to have strawberries and lettuce!

And as Matt was walking around the perimeter of the garden putting up the fence, I noticed that there was going to be left over wire.

The wheels started turning and I knew I would be putting that to good use.

So I searched the basement for an unused frame and made a few Miner adjustments. “Lettuce” get to work, shall we? Sorry, I couldn’t resist!

Happy Memorial Day! We are getting ready to celebrate with a get together with a bunch of close friends. We’re hosting and taking care of the burgers, hot dogs and drinks. I wanted an easy cocktail that I could make on a larger scale for the group. We were picking up Cokes for the party so I decided to make a three ingredient Sangria, called Rioja Libre, for the adults to enjoy.

Cheesy Sausage Crescent Ring

This post is sponsored by VELVEETA® . All opinions are my own.

During spring and summer, we tend to get together with friends for weekend brunch a lot. Heading outside during the nice morning weather for a meal together is one of our favorite ways to reconnect and just have some relaxation time in the midst of the hustle and bustle of shuttling kids to activities and taking ourselves back and forth to work. I like to make my recipes for brunch easy so that I don’t spend a ton of time in the kitchen. A recent favorite, a cheesy sausage crescent ring, has only a few ingredients and is so easy to make.

Did you celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day at school this year? We did and there just aren’t enough ways to thank our teachers for all they do for our kiddos and our families. We try to find little ways to say thanks with little bouquets stealthily picked on the walk to school or a coffee card once in a while. So as the year winds to a close, I wanted to present a homemade gift that sends a fun message. Here’s my Teacher Appreciation Gift of a DIY Soy Candle. I’ve added a fun little message related to light to really drive it home!

I love goat cheese. You may remember a little strawberry goat cheese creation I shared recently and I have to tell you that appears on our table weekly now that strawberries are in abundance at the farmer’s market. Know what else goes amazing with goat cheese? Roasted tomatoes…especially when you use it to create a roasted tomato goat cheese pesto pizza.
