Orange Cream Monster Bread

I am always so excited when I get to partner with brands my family loves. While this post was sponsored by TruMoo, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Halloween is just around the corner! I know it is totally crazy to think about it already being mid-October but here we are. We are headed out of town for a few days so I wanted to make sure our Halloween costumes were all set and maybe do a little early Halloween celebrating too with a few baking projects. We did a few but one of my favorites was this orange cream monster bread.

A great Halloween snack that is so easy to make too! This orange cream monster bread is the neatest idea for our Boo bags.

skulls-1

Hello friends! I’m Amy from Mod Podge Rocks (and DIY Candy, and Washi Tape Crafts!). I think we’re all in the Halloween mode, and I had to share a recently completed project with you that I just LOVE. I’m a huge fan of the Dollar Tree, and it’s always a fun challenge to head there and see what I can come up with. I knew I wanted to do something Halloween-related and use FolkArt Extreme Glitter, but besides that, I had no idea what I was doing when I walked into the Dollar Tree. It was SO much fun, and this skull wreath resulted.

Fall Blog Hop: Pumpkin Queso Dip

 I’m a pumpkin lover. I actually eat pumpkin all year round and not just during the fall. But, when fall hits, I start adding pumpkin to just about everything {like cookies, dips, french toast and even hummus}. My most recent pumpkin tinkering came when I was making a queso dip for an upcoming fall party. Usually I just make my world’s best queso dip {seriously, that is not an exaggeration} but I wanted to try something new. So, I made pumpkin queso dip instead.

Adding pumpkin to make pumpkin queso dip is the best idea ever.

Halloween Oreo Truffles

Oreo cookies are totally my weakness. We keep little snack packs of them around the house so they are easy to grab and eat. Of course, I LOVE almost all of the different flavors they have come out with throughout the year. Right now, the Halloween version are out and we have been eating those for our dessert. Of course, an Oreo is even better when it is made into a Halloween Oreo truffle.

These are so good and such a great idea to get kids involved in making fun Halloween treats. I need to stock up on Halloween Oreos before they sell out and I won't be able to make these truffles.

Pinworthy Projects Link Party

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a fantastic week.

I hope you’ll forgive me for not doing features this week. I saw so many amazing projects at last week’s party though. Keep them coming because I am still pinning away.

Turkey, Apple and Brie Bites

I am always excited to partner with quality food brands like Hillshire Farm. As always, even though this post was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I don’t think I’ve talked much about some of my recent changes in eating. I’ve cut out a lot bread and pasta items that I used to eat all the time. I still enjoy them from time to time but they don’t dominate my meals as much. Instead, I like to combine protein with fruits and vegetables whenever possible. It seems like I am always short on time so being able to have a few items on hand that I can grab on go is key. One of my newest favorite grab and go items are these turkey, apple and brie bites.

Only three ingredients to make a snack that is BIG on flavor. Yum!

TBT – Thai Butternut Squash Soup

Once October hits, I am a huge soup fan. I eat soup at least a few times a week between lunches and dinners. While I love broth based soups like vegetable quinoa soup and spicy sausage and tortellini soup, my absolute favorite to this day remainds Thai butternut squash soup. Back when I first shared the recipe for this soup, I definitely didn’t take pictures of it well enough to make you want to reach for a spoon and eat it. So, I thought I would try again and add it to our throw back thursday series.

Thai butternut squash soup is my favorite fall soup. It is creamy squash without the usual sweetness.

Margarita Chicken Rice Bowl

I am so excited to continue my work with Success® Rice by sharing this recipe with you that has become a family favorite of ours. As always, while I was compensated for this post, all opinions and thoughts are my own.

We are big Tex-Mex and Mexican food fans. From burritos to quesadillas, we love the flavors of lime, cilantro combined with a hint of spice. One of my favorite things to get when we go places like Chipotle is a rice bowl. I was at home one evening and really craving one so I decided to make my own version. This margarita chicken rice bowl is so easy to make and ridiculously delicious too. You may never go to Chipotle again because you’ve got something even better that you make at home!

This margarita chicken bowl is so delicious. It is like Chipotle made at home.
