Thank you to Chex for sending supplies and goodies for these Chex Mix muddy buddies recipes.

Next week my SIL and brother go to see if they can find out the gender of their baby.  I’m looking forward to knowing if it’s a boy or a girl so that I can start shopping for adorable baby clothes!  It also makes planning for a baby shower a little easier, if you’d like to decorate based on the gender.

"It's a Girl!" & "It's a Boy!" Baby Shower Muddy Buddies Recipes

Muddy Buddies has always been a hit at any of the parties I’ve been to, and when you mix in pink or blue candies, it also makes a great snack for a baby shower.  Fill cupcake liners and use them as a place setting at the guest tables, or place bowls filled with it on the food or dessert tables.

A few weeks ago I shared with you a Mom-to-Be Mother’s Day gift idea as a way to share the announcement that my sister-in-law Abby and my brother Sam are pregnant with their first baby.  I am so excited that I’m going to be an Auntie, as I have a lot of great memories of doing fun things with my aunts.

Bubbles celebrated her 4th birthday back in February.  I had big plans of sharing the entire thing with you at that time, but we were all sick both prior to and following her birthday, so sharing the details kind of slid to the back burner.

One Bowl Elsa Doll Cake Tutorial for a Frozen Birthday Party

As she’s getting older now and definitely has her own opinion on things, I let her choose her own party theme this year.  We looked at some different options online and in the stores, and in the end she (unsurprisingly) chose a Frozen theme.  And once we had decided on Frozen, I knew I wanted to try my hand at an Elsa cake.

Easy Family Dinner + Skillet Cornbread Recipe

Since marrying a southern boy I have been doing my best to learn more southern cooking.  One of the first things I made sure I learned was how to make cornbread, as he likes it with almost anything.  And because everyone said it was the “real” way to do it, I learned how to make a skillet cornbread recipe.

Easy Family Dinner + Skillet Cornbread Recipe

A homemade skillet cornbread recipe is great because it only takes about five minutes to mix up and then you toss it in the oven.  Then about twenty minutes later you have golden brown cornbread with those crispy edges and crunch bottom.  So, so delicious. Continue reading »

Lately I have been in the mood for my Mom’s Taco Salad.  It’s a great recipe (I’ll share it with you all one of these days), a little different than a traditional taco salad.  It’s not hard to make, but it does take a little advanced planning.

This Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe has all the yummy flavors of a taco on one plate. No big shell needed, just add a few crushed tortilla chips to give you that nice crunch.Thank you to Lunchbox for sponsoring this post. Words & opinions are my own.

I was trying to decide what to make for lunch recently and after going through all the cabinets, fridge and freezer, I realized that I had everything on hand to make tacos.  Which meant that I had everything I needed to make the Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe from the Kraft Recipe Hub.  Hubby likes taco salad, also, so I decided to whip this recipe up for lunch.
