I was at Sam’s Club the other day and bought a huge case of Capri Suns for kid lunches. When I got home, I pulled one out for me to drink. Then, I got to thinking, wouldn’t this be a tasty treat with some alcohol mixed in? So that’s what prompted me to make some Capri Sun-gria as I like to call it.
My absolute favorite Capri Sun flavor is Mountain Cooler, even when I was a kid, it was my fave. It’s full of berry flavors like raspberry and blackberry, so I thought it would be perfect to mix in for a delicious sangria. (more…)
What have you been working on? We had some big bad ice and snow days down here in Texas. My kids were out of school for 2 days, but it’s actually snowed every day down here since Sunday. Crazy! Tonight it’s supposed to snow even more.
We went sledding down the driveway in laundry baskets and made lots of yummy food including this Bubblegum Poke Cake! Check out the recipe HERE!

I still think of myself as a kid sometimes. You know why? Because one of my favorite flavors is Bubblegum. I like to make bubblegum flavored desserts. I’ve made bubblegum cupcakes, ice cream, cream slushes, and even fudge. Ever since I found those frosting creations mix in flavor pouches, I will probably make bubblegum anything.
The other day I was grocery shopping and my 4 year old found bubblegum flavored gelatin mix. We both knew we had to buy it. I just didn’t know what exactly we were going to make with it. I didn’t want to make just plain ol’ gelatin. How boring is that? So, I was looking for a recipe for something involving soft drinks the other day and saw this amazing cherry cola poke cake. Then, it hit me! Bubblegum Poke Cake would be perfect with the bubblegum gelatin. (more…)

I’m always looking for easy, scrumptious meals for my family. I don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen because we’ve got fun activities like sledding down the driveway to do! My kids love Chef Boyardee, and it’s a perfect meal for a hot lunch when school’s been canceled like it has for the last couple days.
It’s been sleeting with freezing rain since Sunday afternoon. School is closed today for the weather. The kids are thrilled for their instant 3-day weekend. My dear sweet husband, Nate, is going to attempt to drive to work. I think he should stay home. We’ve already heard reports on the radio that the freeway overpasses are frozen over in the direction he’ll be headed. I’m hoping I can convince him to stay home.
We live up north of the Dallas/Ft Worth area, so we usually get the bad weather much worse than the rest of the area. One time, we were basically trapped at home with about 4 inches of ice along our entire steep driveway, and both our cars are always in the garage. It took both Nate and me 2 days to scrape it off, and the kids were out of school for an entire week.
Last night, with the sleet coming down and freezing outside, it was perfect weather for a steamy bowl of stew. It was a last minute idea, so I didn’t have all day to simmer a stew on the stove. But, I’ve got a deliciously hearty recipe that you can make in a flash for dinner one night. It takes just minutes to prepare. You can simmer it for just a few minutes and it’s ready to go. (more…)
