Cinnamon Pull Aparts

I love making bread in the Fall.  My mom always use to make us Cinnamon Pull Aparts often when we were little kids.  As I was cleaning out my freezer this week I found 3 different bags of rolls.  I didn’t want them to go to waste from freezer burn and I immediate thought of making my moms Cinnamon Pull Aparts.  I can honestly say I don’t think I have ever made them for my family.


My husband was so impressed by these bad boys!  The first thing he said after trying them was why have you never made these before!  He said its like an individual cinnamon roll.  So now these Cinnamon Pull Aparts are on my husbands radar and he is already asking when I will be making them again.  My kids on the other loved them or I think they loved the icing more!

I have always been looking for fun and new snacks for the kids to enjoy!   Because  as a kid you need snacks….actually who am I kidding we all need snacks.    So far I think this Summer has been a scorcher!  I am always on the hunt to find some cool treats for us to enjoy.  One day while we were doing weekly trip to Walmart my son spotted these Strawberry Snack Pack Juicy Gels and Snack Pack Pudding Bars.   We have not tried them before and I figured why not give them a go.

The month of March is filled with lots of Basketball games in our home.   Between the whistles blowing, shoes squeeking on the floor and the boys in my life screaming at the television I can always tell their is basketball game on.

Even though I don’t follow many of the games on television I like to know that my boys have everything they need to enjoy the games.

Skittles have always been a treat that I have always loved since I was kid,  and now its fun to see my children love them just as much as I did.  Honestly, It’s only madness if you don’t have Skittles  in your home.  So while I was watching the game with family it got me to thinking about making one of our other favorite treats along with our Skittles.  These Marshmallow Popcorn Balls with Skittles were a slam dunk in my house!    They were just what we needed to complete our game!

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner I wanted a fun way to enjoy these M&M’s® with our family and friends.   I love the bright colors that M&M’s® use with their products.    All the colors remind me of a rainbow so there is no better way to showcase them then with a rainbow!   Which is perfect for the upcoming holiday.

Angel Food Cake French Toast

While I was at the grocery store a few days ago I happened to walk past the strawberries.   The strawberries had an amazing smell.  The  kind of aroma you just know they are going to toast good!   Well I was right and the 2 year old gobbled them up..he couldn’t get enough.    Since we had such great strawberries in the house I want to make a yummy dessert to go along with dinner.   So I whipped up a box of angel food cake.   Dessert was amazing and we all enjoyed it.

With a new baby in the house we don’t get out of the house that much any more.   Especially with the cold winter weather.  So in order to keep our sanity and have fun at home, we have family game night, family movie night and just run around the house and play with every toy possible kind of night.  My favorite is family movie night.  We all snuggle up on the floor and have a nice variety of treats for all of us to share.   One of our always go to snacks are Goldfish crackers.  I thought why night turn or favorite cracker into a bowl full of yummy snacks.  This way its a win win for parents and kids.

 So drum roll please…….introducing The Ultimate Goldfish Cracker Snack Mix.   Nothing is left out and everyone is left satisfied.
