Easy Treat: Monster S’mores

easy and kids will love these! monster smores!

Halloween is here! Well, almost. October flew by and I almost didn't get to share these Monster S'mores.  Even though there are only a few hours before the ghosts and goblins start haunting our neighborhoods, there is always time for an easy extra treat. Don't you agree? These literally take a few minutes to throw together, so if you're out of time but still want to serve up something festive... these should totally fit the bill. If you can handle something a little more gory - but still … [Read more...]

I'm going to fill you in on all the happenings. You might want to grab a bib before reading on, fair warning. Food trucks lined up at the … [Read more...]

Death by Chocolate Slow Cooker Dump Cake

Get your chocolate fix with this death by chocolate dump cake for the #slowcooker

Seriously, it's National Chocolate Day! Now, I would (and do) happily celebrate every single day but it's cool that there is actually a day where chocolate is celebrated publicly. It was hard to resist sharing some chocolate goodness, so I didn't. I didn't resist. I've been itching to try making a "dump" cake. Not sure if I was just living under a rock or what, but I've only recently heard about this epic idea a year or two ago. So, it was certainly about time to try one for myself and to … [Read more...]

Birthdays & Armpits. See how I’m celebrating them like a boss.

birthdays and armpits

It's my birthday today, so I feel that I'm entitled to a free pass to chat about armpits freely. Do armpits and birthdays really have anything to do with each other? Hmm it's a slight stretch. Unless you consider that we're born with armpits. Or perhaps you want to wave your hands like you just don't care on your own birthday. I surely won't be the one to judge. Aha, if you want to smell good on your big day, attention to your pits is probably imperative. That's it! I've found the real … [Read more...]
