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. 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.
We're trying to cut down on carbs at our house. I'm always looking for delicious, healthy recipes to make, where I don't even notice the lack of carbs.
I love quiche, so instead of adding the crust, I poured my egg mixture into individual ceramic dishes, baked it, and came up with this low carb quiche with bacon and cream cheese.
This week, lots of stunning parties were added to our site, including a fabulous carousel birthday party! What a fantastic way to celebrate a little girl's first birthday.
My favorite parties this week include the gorgeous carousel first birthday party, an awesome Minions birthday party, a stunning mermaid birthday party and an creepy glam Halloween dinner party. Check them out below...
It's a rainy, gray day, so I'm excited to share my favorite cinnamon apple raisin bread pudding recipe.
This bread pudding is so warm and moist. It's like biting into a fluffy, sweet, cloud of apples, raisins, and cinnamon. Plus, I topped it with a drizzle of Nutella just to give it a slight hint of chocolate. So scrumptious!
Who's ready for football? My husband loves college football, so of course, my eight-year-old daughter does, too. They're already planning their "game time," their special time together on the couch watching their favorite teams.
While they're watching -- which is so cute to see btw, because my daughter doesn't understand the game -- I'm usually fixing snacks.
If you want to be happy, just try my peanut butter Nutella cookie recipe! 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 , 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. It's the hard "k" sound. Just try it.
