This shop and my Angry Birds party ideas have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. Opinions are mine, but the angry fun can be yours! #AngryForSavings #CollectiveBias

We’re kind of big fans of Angry Birds around here.  When she was around three, Bubbles was sitting with Daddy while he was playing Angry Birds on his phone.  She reached down and after a few minutes was successfully passing levels like a pro.

How to Host the Ultimate Angry Birds Party for the Whole Family!

Because Bubbles starts school next week we’ve been trying to pack as much extra fun into the last week or two of summer.  I had wanted to take her to see the Angry Birds movie in theaters but we didn’t get the chance.  So I decided we’d do an at-home Angry Birds movie party instead!

Trying out new restaurants was one of my husband and I’s favorite things to do when we were living in Florida.  There were so many so close to us that we tried to get to one new place every other week or so.

Mellow Mushroom has fun decor unique to each location, like this fun Churchill Downs-inspired decor at the Middletown, KY location.

There are a lot of great ones to try here in Louisville, too; Louisville is quickly becoming known as a real foodie town.  But between having a baby and moving to the edges of the city we haven’t had a chance to try as many new ones as we’d like. Continue reading »

This shop and my trifle recipe & milkshake shooters have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions, photos and recipes are mine alone. #GameTimeMVP #CollectiveBias

Over the weekend I spent some time working on more of my menu for game day.  When I’m trying something new, or even just a variation on something I make often, I like to give them a trial run to ensure they work out the way I think they will.  No one around here minds needing to eat some of the same things twice, I promise.

Game Day Recipes: Butterfingers Peanut Butter Cups Minis trifle recipe & milkshake shooters with DiGiorno Cheese Stuffed Crust 5 Cheese Pizza #GameTimeMVP

I’ve been kind of loving the ButterFinger Peanut Butter Cups since they came out, and when I saw the new ButterFinger Peanut Butter Cups Minis at Walmart not that long ago an idea started to form.  My Mom makes an amazing chocolate trifle with crushed up candy bars.  I thought it would be perfect to replace the candy bars with chopped up ButterFinger Peanut Butter Cups Minis so I picked up a bag to bake with (as well as a smaller bag to snack on).

This easy game day appetizers shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PreparetoParty #CollectiveBias

Over the last few years I’ve shared a lot of tailgating and Big Game recipes with you all.  I married a football guy and he converted me to a football gal (though I do still like watching the commercials).  With the Big Game just around the corner I thought I’d share a little of what we’re working on this year.

Easy Game Day Appetizers and Party Ideas for the Big Game #PrepareToParty

When I entertain on game day I generally like to go cute but simple.  I want food my guests can enjoy without missing a play, so either something they can hold or something that they can snatch for a single bite before yelling at the TV (that does happen in other houses, right?).

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This #NewFavorites shop on pizza party ideas for basketball games has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser.

So, it’s March.  And while March means lots of things – the onset of spring and my birthday, for example – it also means one other major event.  College hoops tournament!

Now, here in Kentucky college basketball is a Really Big Deal.  One of our colleges actually has the most wins over like the last five decades.  People here live and breath it all season, but especially in March.  Local businesses even close down and send employees home just to watch.

Pizza Party Ideas: Pizza Pick Pennants for Your March Hoops Party #NewFavorites #shop

For me, it’s the perfect excuse to have friends and family over to watch the basketball games on TV.  And because I love a theme, I’ve been putting together a few pizza party ideas to share with you all.  Pizza is a convenient food to share with guests, plus it’s easy for everyone to eat while jumping up and down and cheering.
