Looking for Fathers Day breakfast ideas? I think it is nice to wake Dad up Sunday morning with a hearty, delicious breakfast (and a cup of joe with the morning paper of course!). In our house, we have narrowed down the menu to 4 of his favorites. However, we just might end up making a couple because we can’t decide!
-French toast and fruit skewers via cakeface (kids love assembling these!)
Looking for something fun to do on St Patricks Day morning? Well, if you want to do more than a Lucky Charms treat for St Patricks Day food, consider this greenpancake recipe!
Nothing fancy here, simply add green gel food coloring to your favorite pancake recipe. Cook as normal, stack em’ up and serve!
Hostess Tip: You can always make pancakes ahead of time and freeze. Since St Patrick’s Day is on a school/work day this year (which are really busy mornings in our home!), I made these up and put them in the freezer. Then, all I have to do is pop in the microwave for 2 minutes and serve.
Looking for a simple cocktail to serve your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? Or just something decadent to try yourself? You’ll love this simple Chocolate Martini.
-3 oz Chocolate Raspberry Vodka (I used Godiva)
-Raspberries for Garnish
*Swirl chocolate syrup in the martini glass and place in the freezer. this lets the chocolate set up so it doesn’t mix in immediately when you pour in the vodka. Once set, shake vodka over ice and strain into martini glass. Garnish with raspberries.
So I was tweeting away last night about making these rainbow cupcakes ….well I wanted to share the finished pictures with you all. We are going to deliver these to our neighbors today wishing them a luck St. Patrick’s Day. If you are looking for a last minute treat– these are simple. I even had everything to make these rainbow cupcakes right in my pantry!
See how bright these are? I used plain white cupcake liners. And made these flags using my computer and a toothpick.
I couldn’t resist a close up!
They look so cheerful all in a row, don’t they?
What about on a tray? I got this great green tray at target for only $2.50, score! Here is a better look:
See, great tray… right?
Need I say more? Make someone lucky today and make these bright cupcakes.
*note: I did not have a box of white cake mix so I used this scratch recipe….really, really easy and taste so much better. I will never go back to the box.
I got so much interest when I posted these on our Facebook wall, that I decided to share them here as well.
Want to make your family smile on a Sunday morning? Serve them up a cheerfulbreakfast surprise, rainbowpancakes! They are simple to make. Prepare your favorite pancake batter as usual- then divide it amongst separate bowls and add food coloring to each bowl (I used 5 colors here but you could use 6 colors in the rainbow). Then, cook like normal!
