My favorite part of holiday meals is dessert. Well, honestly, isn’t that EVERYONE’s favorite? I like to try new desserts so that’s what I always sign up for at our family meals. And Pinterest is the world’s best place to search! I typed Easter desserts into the search bar and BAM! there were hundreds of ideas to pick from. They are bright and cheery and full of spring flavors. I started pinning them all to a secret board (I didn’t want to annoy you with my zillion Easter pins all at once) and then I decided I would collect my favorites into one post and share them with you! Remember, if you want to pin a particular recipe, then click-through the link to that post and pin from the source. If you want to save the whole collection, please pin away! Happy Easter!Read More
Please, please, PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one with glasses that look like this! I opened my cupboard the other day and I couldn’t find a single “clean” glass in there! Now, I know they are clean. They went through the dishwasher, at least. But every time they went through a cycle in there, they came out a little bit worse. So how do you get cloudy glassware all shiny and clean again? It’s easier than you may think!Read More
Ahhhhh……Spring is in the air! I love March and April. They are absolutely the BEST months to live in Southern California! The weather is just gorgeous-sunny and warm during the day (it was HOT today!) but the mornings are cool and the evenings are perfect for sitting outside. We don’t have to use the a/c yet because we sleep with the windows open to cool down the house overnight. Along with bringing in the new season, March is also National Reading Month. The older two boys have been participating in all sorts of reading activities for school so Charlie and I spent a fun afternoon reading and crafting!

Everything about Easter is adorable. Little girls in frilly dresses, little boys in suits and ties, baby chicks, fluffy bunnies, pink flowers and pastels everywhere…YAY FOR SPRING! And since I’m so incredibly outnumbered around here, I have to grab on to the “cute” where I can. So even though the boys were largely unimpressed, I am really happy with how these fun little Easter pudding cups turned out. Plus, as you already know if you read my posts often, I really love marshmallows.Read More
I’ve posted about S’mores so many times on the blog, you may be getting sick of it. I can’t help it. I just love marshmallows, and when you toast them and add chocolate and graham crackers, I can’t control myself. So when I saw a recipe for No Bake S’mores Cheesecake over on Sandra’s blog, A Dash of Sanity (love her!) I knew I had to try it.Read More
So, tell me if this sounds familiar: you wake up and roll over and grab your phone to start checking messages. There are about 50 emails in your inbox waiting for your attention. Most of them are for department stores, discount ticket sales, blogs you follow and “membership” emails. But even though you NEVER open the emails, you also never unsubscribe from them. It’s just easier to swipe and delete than go through the steps to get off the list. But every once in a while, there’s a gem in one of those emails that grabs your attention. That’s the only reason I still get daily emails from Pillsbury. Because once in a while, I see a recipe that says, MAKE ME! So I do. And this Apple Cream Cheese Pizza was one of those special recipes that caught my attention!Read More
