I was asked by Nutella to show how I like to "spread the happy." What a cool assignment. I'm a big believer that happiness is contagious. Just watch a group of kids laughing, and you'll quickly notice your own smile (or even laughter). It's just that easy.
So for Memorial Day, we were invited over to our friends' house for a BBQ. I love bringing homemade desserts to spread some happiness, so this year I made homemade peanut butter cookies and sandwiched them together with a dollop of Nutella. Do you know "cookie" is a happy word? It makes you smile when you say it. Just try it.
With Cinco de Mayo just a few days away, I wanted to share an easy cookie recipe perfect for the occasion... enter my yummy lime margarita cookies! These cookies have the tang of lime juice and the kick of tequila. What's not to love? I gave some of these cookies to my friends and they raved about them!
I love cooking in summer. All I have to do is throw something on the grill, add a simple marinade (or not) and whatever I cook, typically ends up tasting good. And for entertaining, it's such an effortless and casual way to go. Plus, I like that it usually gets messy, which I think just adds to the fun. I always make sure I have plenty of napkins available.
Charred smoky flavors make my mouth water. To me, there's nothing better than the smell of grilled food -- from steaks to hamburgers to shrimp to chicken to veggetables... and even fruit. That's why I loved compiling this collection of grilled dishes from Foodie.
We were given a basket of goodies from Kraft and asked to come up with our own recipe. How fun, especially when the basket contained two of my favorite ingredients.... chocolate and marshmallows!
I knew instantly I wanted to make cookies. But sometimes it's hard to add marshmallows to cookies because when you bake them, the marshmallows can sort of evaporate.
We were asked by Kraft to add our spin to one of their spring dessert recipes. So here's our take on their Luscious Lemon Poke Cake. Instead of "poking" the cake with holes to get the Jell-O flavor inside, we decided to create a cupcake with an actual Jell-O filling surprise inside! I can't wait to serve these to guests to see their reaction!

We created these cheese mice for our post about what to serve at Grumpy Cat's 2nd birthday. These cheese wedges are super cute, super kid-friendly, and super easy to do!
If you've been reading our blog, you know that we've been brought on by Friskies Party Mix to help plan Grumpy Cat's 2nd birthday, which is being held in NYC on April 29th. We racked our brains trying to come up with foods she might like. Now we need your help in deciding what to send to her big birthday bash!
There is nothing better than a "girls night in," hanging out with girlfriends (preferably in pajamas), binge watching a show, eating something decadent, like greasy fried chicken, and drinking something delicious.
I was asked by Trop50 to incorporate their raspberry açaí juice blend into a yummy drink.
