Snickers Pretzel Mix #Chocolate4theWin #shop

Football season is just about underway!  Whether it is a club, college, high school or professional teams are practicing and getting ready for another exciting season.  My family loves to watch football. Of course football also means snacks, so to go along with our first game of the season I created this portable SNICKERS Pretzel Snack with cute little football bags.

These Bourbon Maple Sweet Potatoes are sure to be a hit at your next dinner! Creamy potatoes with a crunchy pecan topping and just the right amount of sweetness!

I had these delicious Bourbon-Maple sweet potatoes as one of my sides. Ben doesn’t normally like sweet potatoes (which is one reason I ordered them!- kidding!) but he inhaled these babies. I decided to try to recreate the sweet potato recipe for our Thanksgiving meal and they were pretty spot-on.

Classic Cherry Pie

Ever since I was five, my mother and I have always made this Classic Cherry Pie for special occasions or just dessert. I’ve never lost my taste for cherries…or dessert. This recipe has been a family favorite for years. A simple recipe easy to make for busy days.

    finished bar cart 004

    We all know that bar carts are all the rage right now and who’s surprised? Not I- even if you don’t want to use them to house alcoholic beverages, how can you not be a fan of a bit of extra storage that you can move around?!

     

    Mini Blueberry Cups

      Miranda’s favorite post came from Ten at the Table with the post “Stromboli Step by Step!”
      Saying, ” I am such a bread lover and enjoy any type of pizza/sandwich style food. This recipe is so doable especially in a hurry!”
      pinnable-stroboli-image

      Natasha’s favorite post came from Jayhawk Mommy with the post “Teaching My Toddlers Manners!”
      Saying, “I am a stickler on manners with my son. It is very important to me that he is a mannerable young man – making sure he says Thank You, Yes please, You’re welcome, Bless you, etc. I definitely see that there is a lack of children being polite and mannerable, and growing up that was such an important factor with my grandparents and parents. Therefore, I want to encourage my son to do the same. Thanks for sharing this great post!”
      teaching-manners

      My favorite post came from Jayhawk Mommy with the post “Teaching My Toddlers Manners!”
      What a wonderful post! I see so many children that have long since passed the toddler stage, with absolutely no manners and no respect, and it saddens me greatly for the state of future generations. It makes me feel so wonderful, when my own children at 12, 14, & 21, still use the manners and respect that they have been taught since birth. Thank you so much for sharing!
