In case some of you haven’t been watching the national weather, it’s HOT here in Texas! Since our family seems to get caught up in Murphy’s Law more often than not, it’s really no surprise that not only did it work out that we moved here smack dab in the middle of July, but that there would be a heat wave going on too! The other day it soared up to temperatures where the heat index hit 108!
I am SO excited that the weather is finally nice here, and I’m ready for outdoor entertaining and picnics.
Fortunately, Fisher Nuts has once again teamed up with Food Network Chef Alex Guarneschelli, a regular judge onChopped, to offer you a fresh twist on spring recipes, like Strawberry Crostata with Walnuts, Green Bean and Almond Salad, and Baked Clams with Walnuts.
A couple of years ago we needed to invest in a new TV (okay needed is sort of an over the top word for a TV, no one NEEDS a TV, but you get what I mean…). My husband always on the forefront of technology decided we should get a 3D one. Back then it was quite a risky thing to do because no one really knew if this ‘at home 3D thing’ would take off, you could hardly even buy any movies for it then. Although we paid quite a bit up front for it, over the past few years it has actually saved us a lot of money because we rarely go to the movie theater anymore.

There’s nothing more welcoming than to walk into a home and have it smell like fresh baking. It doesn’t just #TemptYourSenses but it also is comforting. It’s a well known tip to bake often when your home is on the market, as the scent seems to make potential buyers more easily feel like the home could be theirs.
It’s a good thing then that I received a couple of Renuzit Tempting Indulgences in the mail to use at home, because we are currently trying to sell it! With scents like Crème Brulee and Chocolate Covered Cherries lingering in my home,
This is an easy to make fondue that is kid-friendly too! It’s so fun to eat foods with chocolate fondue and makes a decadent treat for dessert!
Without a doubt my favorite part of the BlogEats conference was the Blogger Recipe Challenge.
We were divided up into 4 teams by choosing spatulas with numbers on them and given a mission to make a holiday dessert using any or all of the following Kraft Foods ingredients; OREO Cookies, Planters Peanut Butter and/or Jell-O Chocolate or Vanilla Instant Pudding.
We have a saying in our home; “There is never enough cheese”. If a recipe calls for cheese, I always add ‘just’ a bit more! If a recipe doesn’t call for cheese…you’ll often find me adding some! We like having cheese with our cheese! We like parmesan cheese as a topping on pizza and noodles, but there are so many more ways to use new Kraft Parmesan Cheese Seasoning Blends.
