Coca-Cola Black Forest Brownies & DIY Basketball Coasters Tutorial

We have a great time getting together with a group of friends every other week.  We talk and we eat.  Us ladies enjoy crafting together and the guys...well they talk and watch sports and right now they are in the thick of watching NCAA® March Madness.  So I thought it would be fun if I brought along some cans of Coca-Cola all packed up with crafted Basketball Coasters when we get together this week, along with some Coca-Cola Black Forest Brownies for us all to enjoy.

I'll start with the brownies.  They really are so simple to make.  You can see how easy it is with my Flipagram Video below.

SPLENDA┬« Sweet Swaps - Poached Pineapple with Sweet Cinnamon Syrup

poached pineapple mango yogurtIt’s no secret that I like the warm weather. My family couldn’t wait to move to Texas to get away from the cold Northern air. I’m itching for spring to make a full appearance, but it seems to be lagging behind the ‘official’ date!

So I needed to bring some spring into our home this week with a dessert bursting with sunshine, sweetness and warmth. Fresh fruit with the color of spring, bright yellow like the daffodils and tulips trying to poke their way through the ground, and some frozen yogurt to top it off.

Market Street's Apple Donation Program + Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie Recipe

What I love about shopping at Market Street is that they are invested in the communities that they are located in.  They like to know where the food they sell comes from, and they personally visit each and every Growing Partner they buy from.  In turn they also give back and from now until March 18th, for every apple purchase in their stores, Market Street will donate apples to an area food bank.

Well that just made we want to buy some apples!  And look at the variety the Flower Mound Market Street had available.

Mickey Mouse Jello Treat Recipe

Like many of yours, our family is a big fan of Disney.  Our family vacations have revolved around their parks and the Disney Cruise Line for the last 21 years, starting with our honeymoon.  So it was with great excitement when I learned that I get to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration next month!  Disney Parks & MomSelect sent me a whole box of goodies to get my party started and I know the moms and kids who come are going to have a great morning.

Candied Pumpkin Pie | Add a Homemade Touch with Marie Callender's

If I'm going to be honest one of the things I like best about the holidays is the food, especially pie.  Pecan Pie, Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie...I want..  All. The. Pies.  Here comes a moment of truth though..I'm not so good at making pies myself.  I've tried.  Numerous times.  The crust is never as flaky as I think I should be.  The filling never as dense or as flavorful.  The perfect pie from scratch, I'm of the opinion that it will take me years to master that, and I want the perfect pie...NOW!  Plus this year with our daughter being away at college, I don't want to be spending all my time in the kitchen baking - I want to spend it with her while she's home for break!

Cookies & Cream Cookies Recipe

Cookies and Cream Cookies

My mother-in-law's chocolate chip cookie recipe is legendary.  It was the one thing my husband brought to our marriage that I didn't somehow try to get rid of over the years .  He used to make them religiously, batch after batch and I was okay with that, because hey, besides always having fresh cookies in the jar, I didn't have to make them.  They became the staple item we brought to family gatherings and potlucks because everybody loved them...and everybody asked for the recipe.

Cakes Under the Influence Peaches & Cream Cupcakes Recipe

I recently was given the chance to try Wineheart Vinoleche thanks to House Party.  It's not widely available where I live and the only store in the vicinity that sold it only had the Tres Leches variety.  Not that that's a bad thing, but I was hoping to try a couple of different kinds so that we had a better idea of the flavors they offered.  The recipe card that they had to match the Tres Leches was a Peaches & Cream drink.
