In college I was always the girl that wanted to throw fun parties. Usually they were themed, but usually about every month my friends and I would host a party. We had gourmet build-your-own-pizza parties, all-white parties, Halloween parties, "dip yourselves in pink" parties, etc. We usually provided all of the food, and usually it was finger foods and dips, so I'm ALWAYS on the look out for some good party foods. This hot artichoke dip has always been one of my favorites. Made In . . .
I did not grow up on the coast, instead- smack dab in the middle of the country. I did not grow up on crab legs and lobster fresh from the shore, just the occasional costco salmon. SO, with that being said, I'm not the biggest seafood eater. I tell you this,to convince you, because there are MANY of you who do not like fish, or many of you who may like it but do not want to prepare it. IF you fall in any of those categories- this meal is a great starter fish meal for you. Tilapia is very mild . . .
Peanut butter blossom cookies are a classic cookie everyone knows and loves. Creamy peanut butter and a big ol' chocolate Hershey kiss in the middle. It's cookie every adult loves and reminds them of childhood. It's a cookie every child is growing to love. This peanut butter blossom cookie recipe comes from a previous contributor, Anna, of oh so. It's her Grandma Eliason's recipe and her dad's favorite cookie. It's such a special family recipe! It's quite delicious. Baking Peanut . . .
I discovered Two Loves Studio a while ago and fell in love with her photography, her style and the down-to-earth feeling her feed had. Despite being an incredible photographer she is also kind and welcoming in her instagram. I signed up for her emails- which were incredibly informed and soon she created this incredible course called Lightroom Magic. I immediately signed up for the course. Not only is it completely affordable but its SO GOOD. I know "so good" doesn't hardly even . . .
This is legit the best sweet n sour chicken recipe! It was put on this blog many years ago and I've made it countless times all these years. My husband requests it often and my kids gobble it all down. I know you will feel the same. The sauce is perfect, not too sweet and not to tangy. Pepper and onions add the most delicious flavors with the sweet pineapple. Top it on rice and it's very filling and satisfying. The best part is its simple and fast. Weeknights become so busy! We are always . . .
Disney's Ice Cream Nachos are a pretty famous item, and I have to agree they are a genius combination! Nachos of any kind give me all the heart eyes. You know what is even better? Ice cream nachos with homemade hot fudge sauce. This is the perfect dessert because you can make the hot fudge ahead of time and basically pull everything out of the pantry and freezer for your guests, not to mention presentation is incredible. You'll get oooh's and ahhhh's all around the table. It's true, it's . . .
Disneyland apple freeze drink is a popular refreshing drink people love to indulge in when they're visiting the park. I completely understand why! Who doesn't love slushes? Who doesn't love slushes that taste like caramel apples?! Disneyland's apple freeze comes with a sweet slushy bottom and a tropical whipped topping. I've really only seen one copycat recipe floating from a fellow food blogger (and the others copied their recipe) and its probably a delicious recipe! but it is loaded . . .
Something that has been on Kadee and my bucket list for this blog has been a Disney Family Dining Guide. We wanted to explore Disneyland for great eating locations (& maybe locations that are not the most well known) for families. So we sadledup and went to Disneyland! It was a HOT and crowded day and we quickly realized that we were not going to be able to explore the entire park's eating establishments. So I enlisted my good friend, long-time employee of Disneyland and trusted . . .
We are so excited for Disneyland Guide Series! Besides for where to eat at Disneyland & some really yummy copycat recipes we also want to recommend where we stayed for the weekend. We stayed at the The Anaheim Hotel. This hotel has been bought recently by a major company and they are totally fixing it up. Repairing and beautifying EVERYTHING. Everything from the grounds, to the rooms, the dinning and bar. I mean everything. And they are doing a beautiful job. Their website has more . . .
Soft caramel popcorn is my very favorite kind of popcorn. Warm, buttery, gooey, gooey soft caramel popcorn. mmmmmm. This recipe comes from my Grandma Doxey, who was such an amazing cook, we have many recipes of hers on our website. In the evenings when we were vistiting she was famous for pulling out her stir-crazy and making giant batches of homemade popcorn. Sometimes with butter and salt, sometimes this soft caramel popcorn. I always went up to the kitchen and helped, I had this recipe . . .
