19 Aug 2014 In: Recipes



Excuse me while I scream a little bit….  AAAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

School ‘s back…  Can you believe that?  Where has the summer gone?  I think I actually saw summer hop on a plane and FLY by.

Yesterday marked the day I have a 7th grader and a 4th grader… That’s crazy, along with that a 7 month old.  That means that dinner has got to be easy and stress free.  Here are a few of my favorite back to school recipes that I think will make dinner a little easier for you.

Happy back to school time all! :-)

You see Juju plays soccer and its pretty much year round.

Now I can admit he definitely has had a few weeks off at the beginning of the summer to just veg out but now he’s back in the swing of things with practices through out the week and games on the weekends.  This just so happens that when games are early in the morning on a Saturday Mommy dearest needs her morning juice… aka COFFEE!

Now there are those whom like their coffee just black with nothing added to it.  Now in my opinion that’s kinda boring and dull.  Now in these parts we are far from boring and dull… 

Mama loves some Coffee-mate creamer with her coffee, or what my sister-in-law likes to say is “you want a little coffee with all that creamer?”

Mmmmm creamer…… Read the rest of this entry »

WINNERS HAVE BEEN CHOSEN.  CONGRATS TO

Picture 2 Picture 3

This summer has been H.O.T… HOT!!!

I mean I understand I live in Florida and this weather has been a little cooky, I mean its so hot during the day you you could probably boil an egg outside and then in the afternoon early evening it rains… I know, cooky.

During the summer we take so much advantage of going to the pool or the beach, and just lounging by the water.  Especially in this heat we have been cooling off in every possible.  We always invite our neighbors and friends to join us, I mean we all have kids the same age and plus us mom’s need some girl time also…

When hanging by the pool we spend a couple of hours together so we always pack a picnic lunch I mean these  kids eat non-stop during the summer. You know, you agree with me… So when I was asked to sample these new Starburst™ Sorbet Bars I was all on it.  I mean who as a child didn’t like Starburst the candy, and now in frozen form, it was a no brainer.

Red Velvet Pizookie

28 Jul 2014 In: Recipes


Red Velvet Pizookie

Have you ever wondered who was the first person to think of combining the makings of a pie + a cookie??? 

I know this crazy combo created the delicious and sinful dessert we all know as the PIZZOKIE.

Now you know around these parts we are serious fans of cookies, and pies, and desserts, and pretty much anything sweet.  And we can’t forget my obsession with all things red velvet… I’ve shared with you all my delicious creations of a Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie (which is just like a pizookie), but now I stepped it up a notch… RED VELVET PIZOOKIE with not only chocolate chips, but white chocolate chips too.

 

Red Velvet Pizookie 3

You can stop drooling now!!!! :-) This red velvet pizookie can be made in less than 30 minutes and enjoyed and devoured in less than 5.  Serve right out the oven with scoops of vanilla ice cream and see if you don’t get kids who live down the block knocking on your door for a slice.

I don’t know about you all but in this house we drink a whole lot of milk.

Did you know that 1 out of every six families in the US struggle with keeping food on the table for their families and that 1 in 5 Central Floridians struggle with hunger each day.  I know for many of us we get so per-occupied with our own lives that we forget about others who are truly struggling out there… even in our own backyard.

Food banks nationwide are trying to help.  Second Harvest Food Bank is one of these local organizations that are trying to help those families in need. Through their distribution of food in to more than 500 nonprofit partner agencies in six Central Florida counties, people who are in need of  just a little help are given food they need for themselves and their children.  Unfortunately, the one thing needed is Milk!

This year, FlBlogCon has partnered with the Florida Dairy Farmers to spread word about the Great American Milk Drive, to help raise awareness and funds for the single most requested food staple: milk.

4th of July with CK Mondavi

30 Jun 2014 In: Sponsored


Summer is here and the grill is getting fired up.  For the last few weeks we have been out of town visiting family in Atlanta but are home now and 4th of July is just around the corner.  I love this time of year because I find myself grilling out as much as possible.

 

4th-of-July-Burgers

From burgers to hot dogs, to shrimp and chicken kabobs to grilled corn and lots of grilled veggies pretty much anything that can grill I will try and throw it on…Heheheh

I remember as a child every 4th of July we would always spend the day by the pool, with family and friends, fireworks and always lots and lots of Food! This year we were invited to potluck block party in our neighborhood, or what we like to call “the hood,”  trust me if you saw the amount of kids that lived in this neighborhood you would be amazed.  The kids are so excited to hangout and just act crazy with each other and we are just thankful for having great neighbors.

Summer is in full effect and that means kids are going to bed late and sleeping in later.  Of course having a baby in the house means I am left out of that equation, but definitely trying to make up for it in the day.

Now having a now 5 month old, sheesh can you believe he’s 5 months already… where is the time going???  I remember when I shared with you all that I was expecting…

Any way back to the topic on hand, having a baby means my consumption of coffee has definitely increased ten fold.

What can I say coffee is my vise.

With this heat I have to switch it up from hot to cold sometimes.  I mean sitting on the porch drinking a nice cold iced coffee sometimes is the best thing in the mornings.

Seattles Best Coffee

When I was asked to participate in Seattle’s Best Coffee® at Publix Campaign.  You see earlier this year Seattle’s Best Coffee® released its first ever House Blend.

This coffee is made from high quality Latin American, arabica beans.  I knew I had to share with you an iced coffee recipe that would sure to be your new favorite coffee drink.

Cakey Donut Holes

9 Jun 2014 In: Recipes


cakey donut holes

Donut holes are the perfect bite size treat that I can just pop in my mouth.  I mean who doesn’t love donut holes!?!

The bad thing though is that because they are so small I find myself making up excuses as to why I can eat so many of them…

“Their so small another one won’t kill me!”

Does any of that sound familiar… :-)

 

IMG_1794

These cakey donut holes have the consistency of cake, hence the name and then they topped off with a sweet confection sugar glaze.  I think the glaze has got to be one of my favorite things… just be aware, fingers will be licked!

Now don’t get me wrong I am still a lover of soft pillowy donuts that melt in your mouth, but these cakey donut were tasty to try out and the kids loved them… but I’m starting to think these kids will eat anything that’s sweet.

Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats

What is it about rice krispie treats that make you feel like a kid?

Maybe its the gooey marshmallow crispy crunch you get in every bite.

Or maybe it’s the sticky sweet let me get all 10 fingers stuck togetherness that does it.

 

Rice Krispie Treats

Whatever it is it’s just G.O.O.D!!!!!!

I remember as a child my aunt would make these for every function my grandmother would have over at her house.  I just remember how I would always steal one when no one was looking and then eat another when they were served.  I could never get enough and I just thought that they were the best dessert ever.

 

Rice Krispie Treats

Now all grown up I can totally understand why kids all ages can become mesmerized by these tasty treats…

So tell me do you feel like a kid when you eat rice krispie treats?

Fettuccine Alfredo

25 Apr 2014 In: Recipes


fettucinni alfredo

A big bowl of creamy Fettuccine Alfredo is like comfort in a bowl.  This dish is sinfully delicious and can be made in 20 minutes or less. I love creamy pastas.  I love all kinds of pastas but Fettuccine Alfredo is such a classic that you can never turn it away when its made for you.  It’s one of my kids absolute favorite dishes for me to make them. 

You can either make this dish meatless or  with chicken, bacon, mushrooms, or veggies. Fettuccine Alfredo is a great way to show how a few ingredients can be the most divine dinner meal ever. 

If you don’t believe me then try for yourself.
