Have a Very Merry UnBirthday with an Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday!

Have a Very Merry UnBirthday with an Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday!I have always loved Alice in Wonderland, both the books and the classic Disney movie. My daughter and I decided it would be a lot of fun to host a Mad Hatter Tea Party for her birthday. It is a lot of fun to create a party from a theme that is not "in" or "popular" or "new." Parties like these make me stretch my creative muscles and I won't [more]

Captain America The Winter Soldier: A Must See! #CaptainAmerica

Captain America The Winter Soldier: A Must See! #CaptainAmerica   Captain America The Winter Soldier is the number 1 movie in the nation and the film with the largest April box office! And for good reason too.

Get Ready to Celebrate Easter with Hershey’s and Win! #BunnyTrail

Easter is a time to remember love conquers all and family is the most important gift ever. It is also a time full of traditions and memories that make us smile. As a child, I remember looking forward to winning the Easter egg hunt at my grandmothers, yes I said winning..reigning champion in fact. I also enjoyed decorating Easter eggs and showing off my artistic skills with those wax crayons that never like to cooperate! Easter morning we would wake up to our baskets filled with a stuffed animal and goodies.

As a mom, I have continued the traditions of my childhood and added a few new ones. The kids and I love decorating Easter eggs. Last year I decided not to buy the kits but to try my hand at making my own natural egg dyes. We had a lot of fun testing out the “ingredients” and seeing what colors we could come up with.  And since the wax crayons never work, I mean who thought that was a good idea they always run and smear! But I digress… The kids and I decided to leave them blank and just enjoy the cute colors. 

Natural Egg Dye

The other thing everyone young and old loves are those special Easter treats. Hershey’s has been starring in my Easter baskets for as long as I can remember. My favorite was always the REESE’S Peanut Butter Eggs, like touch them and I hurt you love them. My husband grew up looking forward to the REESE’S Pieces and JOLLY RANCHER lollipops. My kids are just chocoholics and prefer plain HERSHEY’S KISSES.

Until now though, I did not even think about Easter recipes using Hershey’s candy. Chocolate may or may not last very long around me and therefore recipes are nonexistent. Hershey’s new site Celebrate With Hershey’s has a lot of delicious looking recipes using their candies. We are planning to make these Easter Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies. You can also find recipes for breads, brownies, cakes, cupcakes, pies, and more!

Hershey's Thumbprint Recipe Easter recipe

look yummy right?

Hershey’s also has a lot of ideas for making Easter great on their site: Celebrate With Hershey’s. The kids and I really like the Hershey’s Kisses Brand Milk Chocolate Kritters Craft. It is easy enough for my 4 year old to make with a little help and my 7 year old can design her butterfly as wild and imaginative as she is.

 These will make cute table decorations for our family dinner!

Miss Piggy Gets a Gown Designed by Vivienne Westwood! #MuppetsMostWanted

Anyone else ever been jealous of a pig? How about a muppet? I know I am, after seeing this gorgeous gown donned by Miss Piggy. Yes, the trendsetting, diva commissioned Vivienne Westwood to design her wedding gown as well as other costume pieces for her new movie The Muppets Most Wanted. The wedding gown is a Vivienne Westwood couture Long Ivory Court wedding gown, with corset detailing and paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorised with an ivory tulle veil. As you can see below, absolutely beautiful! 

MUPPETS MOST WANTED

 

In an upcoming issue of US Harpers’ Bazaar, Vivienne Westwood sits dow in an exclusive Q&A about designing this gown. Click here to read the story www.harpersbazaar.com/misspiggy. I wonder what it was like working with Piggy!

Miss Piggy was quoted saying “Vivienne Westwood is fabulous—just like moi. When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie “Muppets Most Wanted,” she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog.” Sounds like the Miss Piggy I know and love. I cannot wait to see her and the rest of the Muppets in action this March!

The major and most important question is…

Will we finally see Miss Piggy and Kermit walk down the aisle?! Find out March 21st when The Muppets Most Wanted hits theaters everywhere!

Celebrate National Pancake Week with Greek Yogurt Pancakes Featuring Stonyfield!

February 19-25 is National Pancake Week, and who doesn’t like a big fluffy stack of steaming hot pancakes? And did you know that yogurt can make pancakes healthy and even more delicious too? Last month I came up with a whole wheat pancake recipe using Stonyfield Greek Yogurt. It was my first time using yogurt to make pancakes and they turned out great. This time, I wanted to add a topping that was not only good tasting but also good for you.

To celebrate National Pancake Week I changed up that recipe a bit using Stonyfield Strawberry Greek Yogurt and added a Stonyfield Plain Smooth and Creamy based topping for them.

I changed up my original Whole Wheat Greek Yogurt Pancakes and used Stonyfield’s Strawberry Greek Yogurt instead of their Black Cherry. Equally as yummy! This time I made a yogurt based topping for my pancakes using Stonyfield Plain Smooth & Creamy Yogurt.

Stonyfield Yogurt, Maple Syrup, Vanilla Extract, and Cinnamon with organic fruit makes the best topping for pancakes I have ever tasted!

  2. 1 cup of whole wheat flour (or any flour of your choice*)

Instructions
