I love baking special holiday treats for my kiddos. What I don’t love? Having creative ideas that land me 2+ hours cleaning up in the kitchen. (Tell me this has happened to you too. I’ll feel better if it has.) I recently wanted to whip up a fun St. Patrick’s Day treat, and I was thrilled to partner with PAM Cooking Spray to come up with a recipe that was delicious and left me more time to enjoy with my family (vs. standing over the sink).
What did I whip up? The luckiest donuts you ever did see!
These donuts are made with Funfetti cake mix, which means not only were they super simple to mix up, but they are also super fun! (more…)
Looking for a cute way to serve up snacks during the Super Bowl? It can’t get easier (or cheaper) than using old-school paper lunch bags! All you need to do is grab a paint brush and some white paint and in 60 seconds you can transform the ordinary bags into cute football treat bags!
Fill them with popcorn, chips, peanuts, trail mix, or pretzels. Your snack just got an upgrade! (more…)
Add a little football flair to your Super Bowl with this simple DIY. These football mason jars are easy enough the kiddos can make them (which sounds like a touch down to me!). All you need are mason jars and white tape.
The trick is to fill your mason jars with a dark brown beverage. This could be any dark soda or root beer. Also, iced tea works well. Or, if you want to make these for the grown ups, try a dark beer. (more…)
I love to celebrate with desserts. I mean, who doesn’t love a little sweet treat to mark a special occasion? Maybe it’s a birthday, a great accomplishment, or a “just because” moment, this DIY cake topper will make anyone feel extra special. Bonus: it is super simple to make!
I love how creative you can get. You can spell anything! Or use, the numbers to mark a birthday or anniversary. (more…)

With the New Year often comes new resolutions to eat a more balanced diet. Sound familiar? I think I resolve to eat better every January, but often dread the idea of ditching delicious, flavorful snacks. The good news is, delicious snacks can fit into a balanced meal plan (as in this recipe!).
These herb and sea salt sweet potato fries are packed with a sweet, herby, salty, punch and I’m willing to bet that they just might be your new favorite snack. The nice bonus, is that they are also really simple to make. Win-win. Alexia Sweet Potato Fries are all-natural and made with premium ingredients. I jazzed them up a bit but they are also perfect right out of the oven. (more…)

Confession: I’m a sucker for a great breakfast or brunch recipe. There’s just something exciting about a dish you can eat in the morning that is unusual and delicious (no offense pancakes). These breakfast tacos are the perfect recipe if you’re looking to spice up your weekend morning routine.
This time of year is more like “hibernation season” around this household. Our idea of a great weekend is starting off with a delicious meal and enjoying a family-themed movie marathon. I recently made a platter of these breakfast tacos and they were a huge hit! (more…)
