At back-to-school time, I shared some cute back-to-school pudding cups and then zombie pudding cups, at Halloween. Now that we are past the holidays and into the winter, I’m sharing how you can make some cute snowmen. If you have a winter birthday party coming up or just want a fun surprise for your little one, these are easy to make and they’re sure to make everyone smile.

Sparkling Christmas Cocktail, Mocktail, Lemon Berry Punch

Kid Friendly Christmas Mocktail

Oh my gosh its Christmas Eve! When did that happen? The Christmas season has gone by so far with everything we’ve had going on – but I look forward to a weekend full of fun and family!


We all know the holidays are a time for get togethers with friends, families and kids. Everyone always has festive drinks to serve and the kids are left out, but there are so many drink ideas for “mocktails” that are great for kids or anyone who doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages. This Christmas I made Lemon Berry Christmas Mocktails!

One Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate cake

1 Minute Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake

In September I told you about Lonestar Eggs and how good they were. They are a Texan company that is proud to be part of Texas and providing us Texans with a quality product. Since trying them, we haven’t purchased any other type of eggs. They really do have more flavor than your generic supermarket egg and the price is very similar.

A few days ago I gave a new recipe a shot, that was a little different from the regular egg recipe, so I decided on trying a mug cake recipe. The one I made was delicious and was one of my favorite combinations of flavors – peanut butter and chocolate.

This recipe couldn’t be any easier and you don’t have to make a big mess in your kitchen because it’s all made in a mug! This peanut butter mug cake uses just four ingredients and takes only 1 minute to bake. Here is what you need to do.
