If you are looking for a delicious slush, look no further. This recipe is so so yummy! It has a perfect balance of pineapple, lemonade, vanilla, and ice all slushed together in a blender. This drink is great for parties, BBQ’s, or even just for family dinner/dessert. When I first tried this slush I was blown away.
My good friend called me and said that she had a giant zucchini from her garden that I could have. I was so excited and grateful as I love garden zucchini. I drove over and sure enough it was over a foot and a half long! So, I got out my mom’s moist and delicious Zucchini Cinnamon Sugar
My friend Rachel and I love to have dinners together with our kids who are about the same ages. We sometimes have difficulty getting them to eat their veggies (my kids probably more so than hers). As a result, we try to get creative with making vegetables taste better. She came upon this recipe, and we gave it a
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Stop & Shop for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Pizza has always been a favorite food of mine. Ever since I was a little girl I have just loved it! I like all kinds of pizza from thick crust to thin crust, marinara and
When I lived in Taiwan, it was hard to find anything sweet. Apparently they just don’t eat sweet stuff because even the McDonald’s ice cream had no sugar in it! One day my friends and I found a shop that made creamed slush and used real fruit concentrate as flavoring which made them sweet. My favorite was Passion
Summer is fast approaching and we love cold drinks, juice, and slushies. Today I took my kids’ favorite new juice–Mott’s® Apple Cherry Juice–and blended it with some ice. I put it in a few cups with color-changing straws. My kids have been going crazy over the sweet frozen goodness of this simple treat. (Admittedly, I have also
Easter is such a lovely holiday. I enjoy the spring temperatures, the budding flowers, and the rebirth of green in nature! I appreciate the time I have to contemplate Christ and his Messianic mission during this holiday. Easter baskets and egg hunts are a favorite—especially now that I have kids. I love to see them excited
My friend has been making these Resurrection Easter Dessert Rolls for years. She taught me how and told me I could share this amazing recipe and object lesson with my readers. I showed my son and his friend the marshmallow and told them it represented Jesus Christ. He was laid in the tomb (Pillsbury® Butter
I’ve always loved the Original Rice Krispie Treat Bars. They taste amazing—but quite different from homemade rice krispie treats. Although I love both homemade and blue bar treats, I’ve never figured out why the blue-wrapped treats tasted so different from the homemade recipes I would make…until recently. By luck, I decided to make the standard Rice
I am on a high-protein diet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a dessert now and again! When I eat something sweet, I try to balance it with a good amount of protein. I feel like I can stay on track better when my desserts are filled with protein—as they keep me full longer.
When I lived in Taiwan and taught English, I had some really amazing dipping sauce and none have ever compared since… until I found this recipe. You can basically dip anything in it and it is delicious. From pot stickers to wontons, dumplings to lettuce wraps and more. You can also pour it over rice and/or
I’ve never used fondant until last week. And to be honest I have always been a little scared to try it. But I decided to give it a whirl when I was out shopping for my daughter’s first birthday and I found this multi pack of different colors of fondant on sale. It wasn’t nearly as
This banana bread recipe has been in our family for over 50 years. It is so moist, simple, quick, and delicious. In under 15 minutes I can have the banana bread baking in my oven and making my home smell delicious. When topped with fresh butter, it is craving worthy! Directions 1. Preheat oven to
I helped throw this Little Peanut Elephant Baby shower found here and my friend made the most delicious cupcakes (I photographed them below). The frosting is literally the BEST vanilla bean frosting I’ve ever had. I holds its shape nicely for frosting cakes and cupcakes, yet is super soft and smooth when eating. It even
