Easy Chocolate Syrup Recipe

Easy Chocolate Syrup Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

My husband and I were recently sharing favorite food memories, and he told a story of how when he was little, and had dinner at his grandmother's house, he'd get to go into her refrigerator, pull out the chocolate syrup, and pour it all over his vanilla ice cream all by himself. He was so proud of himself and the ice cream tasted so good.

He said a lot of times it got super messy, but his grandma didn't mind. Aren't grandmas great?

Do you have Star Wars fans in your house? I do. Both my husband and daughter are crazy about Star Wars and are anxiously awaiting Star Wars: Episode VII.

I created a fun Star Wars dessert table, which I'll be sharing in a future post (with free printables), but in this post I wanted to share how to make a Stormtrooper marshmallow. This is much easier to do than it looks.

How To Create A Taco Bar + Free Taco Bar Printables

How to Create a Taco Bar | CatchMyParty.com

If you read my blog, you know I'm a huge fan of DIY bars at parties -- s'mores bars, champagne bars, cupcake decorating bars, etc. -- so to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the start of spring, I thought I'd do a post (and throw a little party) on how to create a taco bar, and then I'd give away some free taco bar printables to help you style your own party.

I know a taco is a very personal thing. I like mine with chicken, guacamole, cilantro, cheese, and beans, but no onions. My husband thinks onions are a must, as well as pork. So I called my taco bar, the "Bar of Happiness" because everyone looked joyous creating exactly what they wanted.

Garlic Chili Pita Chips

Garlic Pita Chips Recipe delicious! | CatchMyParty.com

Now that spring is here, and it's time to think about casual entertaining, I wanted to make some quick and easy chips with some serious "kick."( If you had my husband who pretty much drinks hot sauce, you'd understand the need for these.)

I made these garlic chili pita chips to pair with RO*TEL’s Rockin’ Guac and Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas. The combo of flavors makes me think of sitting by a pool on a warm day, hanging with friends, and having an awesome time.

Sweating Next to David Duchovny

They say that your yoga practice changes as you change. I used to think that meant that as you got older, you just couldn't do the cool poses anymore and yoga wasn't fun. It was like yoga for moms, God forbid. But now that I am getting older and I'm a mom, I'm starting to understand what this really means.

If I were to be completely honest, when I started yoga in my early twenties, I did it mostly for the sweaty workouts, the ego boost (watch me touch my nose to my knees), and the trendiness of the whole thing. I started taking class in Santa Monica, CA, the epicenter of trendy.

Cake Batter Mini Cheesecake Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Check out our funfetti cheesecake recipe perfect for spring! CatchMyParty.com

I love cake batter anything -- cake, cookies, milkshakes... The flavors remind me of birthday parties when I was a kid. Plus I think they look so colorful and festive.

So when we were coming up with an idea for a fun spring dessert using Philadelphia Cream Cheese, I immediately thought... cake batter cheesecake!! Plus, we just got this new mini cheesecake pan that I read good reviews about, and I couldn't wait to try it out.

Cinderella Dessert Table Treats

Cinderella Birthday Party Dessert Table Treats | CatchMyParty.com

I took Lainey, my daughter, to see the new Cinderella movie last week and we both loved it! It was true to the original movie, but seeing it with live action characters, made it feel even more real. We were totally swept up in the drama and romance.

With all the excitement around the movie, we are definitely seeing more Cinderella parties being added to Catch My Party.
