We feel really lucky to be contributors over at Real Housemoms, Aubrey has been wonderful to work with and has really helped our little blog along since we joined her team. This month happens to be our fearless leader’s birthday and since all of her contributors are scattered across the country we couldn’t be there to celebrate with her so we all got together to throw her a surprise virtual birthday party!
For the party Melinda and I made these simple Glam DIY Wine Charms because everyone knows it isn’t a party without wine, and the birthday girl deserves a little bling on her special day.
Our Caramel Apple Cupcakes recipe is made with fluffy yellow cake with real apple pieces filled with caramel marshmallow fluff.
We’re back for our second month of our Monthly Ingredient Challenge. This month’s ingredient was apples. Melinda and I thought about it a lot and we settled on caramel apple cupcakes. Who doesn’t love caramel and apples together? Add them to a cupcake and you have a pretty awesome dessert. Continue reading →
These Leprechaun Cookies are a fun and easy treat for St. Patrick’s Day!
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and this weekend Melinda and I worked on a simple, but super cute, treat for her to send to school for her son’s class. These St. Patrick’s Day leprechaun cookies made with Nutter Butter cookies were what we came up with and I’ve got to admit I’m kind of in love.
Do you have a love and hate relationship with cooking? I do, but these Must Have Kitchen Items make being in the kitchen a littler easier.
Now a days you can’t turn on the TV without seeing a cooking show. Seems like everyone is a chef or wants to be. Thankfully with everyone wanting to be Martha Stewart or Gordon Ramsay, there are so many useful items to make that a reality. Cut prep time in half or the guessing game of whether your meat is cooked to the proper temperature with these kitchen must haves.
These Chocolate Chip Oreo Muffins are easy to make and the best part is they taste like doughnuts!
I am all about using boxed mixes to keep things simple and jazzing them up with some add-ins to make them my own. This month I was looking for a quick treat to make for the kids and I came up with these Chocolate Chip Oreo Muffins. As you can imagine the end result was delicious! I mean really, Oreos, chocolate muffins and chocolate chips, how much better could it get? Continue reading →
We show you how to make your own DIY Wood Photo Backdrop for blog projects and food photos in a few simple steps!
We’ve been meaning to make some wood backdrops for our blog photos but we weren’t exactly sure where to begin so we kept putting it off. Last week we finally decided to just do it, I wish we hadn’t waited so long! The wood backgrounds were so easy to make and we are loving the look of them in pictures! Continue reading →
We made a delicious meal with Campbell’s® Sauces as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are 100% our own. #CampbellsSauces
This slow cooker recipe for Winter Beef Stew with Campbell’s® Slow Cooker Sauces is perfect for an easy dinner on a cold night.
It’s slow cooker season and I love it. Nothing is better than putting some meat and one of Campbell’s® Slow Cooker Sauces in the slow cooker before you head out of the door in the morning, and coming home hours later to the smell of a fully cooked dinner!
This easy DIY Copper Frame is made with copper fitting and wood dowels and takes less than 10 minutes to put together!
This year Melinda and I joined a few different groups for monthly challenges, where one person picks an ingredient, or in this case an item, and we have to make something with it. Today we’re sharing our first project from the Monthly Home Depot Gift Challenge (in no way associated with Home Depot we just love their stuff!). Continue reading →
This is the BEST Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe around. Creamy cheesecake, chocolatey crust and a beautiful raspberry sauce. What’s not to like?
Melinda made us a raspberry cheesecake and this week we’re sharing the recipe over at Real Housemoms. It’s Melinda’s mom’s recipe with a few improvements made by us and it really is the best. The tart raspberry sauce goes perfectly with the creamy cheesecake and the rich chocolate cookie crust. Now I wish I had more :(. Make sure you go grab the recipe, you don’t want to miss out on this one!
From appetizers to dessert we have planned out two meal plans for a romantic Dinner for Two.
Just a few more days until Valentine’s day and if you’re like me you still haven’t figured out what you’re doing. As fun as going out to dinner sounds it’s such a pain on Valentine’s day, I’d much rather stay home, cook dinner, and watch a movie. I sat down today and started planning out what I want to make and I thought I’d share two different dinner for two meal options, just in case you’re a little behind like me ;). Continue reading →
