Easy Microwave Caramel Corn Recipe

Easy Microwave Caramel Corn Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

My daughter and I just finished reading the entire Harry Potter series together. It took us a whole year. Every night we would take turns reading. What a journey it's been, both in terms of the story, and for us. It was like for a year we shared our own special magical world with our own language and our own inside jokes.

So now that we've finished the books, we decided to watch the movies together as a family. (My husband had read the whole series earlier.) It's given us a new way to enjoy Harry Potter, and there's so much for us to talk about and debate as we compare books to movies.

Watermelon Cupcakes for Summer | CatchMyParty.com

It rained last night. No, it poured, and I was delighted. I went outside to smell the smells and soak it all in. I didn't care how wet I got.

I'm on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina. We're visiting my family who live in the middle of the woods.

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?

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.
