Around my house we take Halloween pretty seriously. We have more Halloween decorations than Christmas, we start planning costumes in July, and we always have a big adult Halloween party. We really look forward to some rare alone time with our friends sans kids. It gives us a chance to laugh and talk without being interupted and allows us to have tons and tons of fun! My husband and I have been throwing this party for about 11 years - so we have this down to a science! I want to share a . . .
This week we showcased a few recipes that were made in a 9x13 pan. the 9x13 pan is NOT just for cake mixes and casseroles - although we are certainly not apposed to those things either! We have a haa-uge list of recipes that were whipped up in our favorite item of bakeware. This will be a great post to pin or bookmark because we plan on adding to this list going forward! Or checkout our 9x13 tag for a blog roll of all of our 9x13 recipes. Below the links be sure to take a look at some of . . .
I've had this idea running thru my head for a while now - the idea of featuring all of our recipes that can be made in a 9x13 baking dish. Everyone has one, and the recipes you can whip up in this common pan are numerous. So this week we'll be featuring some new 9x13 recipes as well as reminding you of all of our previous 9x13 recipes. This post wouldn't be complete without mentioning our favorite 9x13 pan. The Fiesta rectangle baker. I truly truly love this pan. It always washes up nice . . .
This sauce is a recipe that has been sittin' around in my cupboard for years. It's a classic, timeless perfect chocolate sauce. It's so purrrfectly chocolatey so to satisfy the cravings of your choc-o-holic needs, but not too rich for those who are *gasp* not inclined toward the chocolate things of this world. You will still be wrapped around this sauce's little finger. Top it on your ice cream. Top it on your cheese cake, make banana splits, or bottle it up and give it to your friends. (you . . .
Last day of summer, friends. THIS IS IT. I know some people are dying to bust out the pumpkins (OK, I just bought like 7 from Trader Joe's today and just set them out on my porch 5 minutes ago. DO NOT HATE ME!) and the soups and crusty breads and the holiday baking...and yes I am there too, but a little part of me is always sad to officially say goodbye to each season. So I will do so with a bang with this banging summer veggie and pasta salad! It comes together pretty quickly. . . .

We have loved pressure cooker week! We hope you're dying to go out and grab one, we absolutely love ours. We firmly believe they will save your school night dinner scrambles, so you can spend more time doing homework with your kids having Bachelor nights with the girls. As a recap, basically anything that can be done in the crockpot can be done in the pressure cooker 2-3 times as fast. you have to have liquid in the pot, so you're not going to get anything crispy in there. You can totally . . .
Over the years we have been contacted by several companies and have tried soooooo many different children dishes, serving ware, dinnerware, cups, bibs, snack packs and cups. YOU NAME IT! We've also spent our own money on trying out different brands. So I wanted to share with you the children's dishes that have made the cut in our house. The ones that work too dang well to giveaway to friends and the goodwill truck ;) and guys this is NOT sponsored. But you can shop everything on the post by . . .
I don't think there is a kid more obsessed with dinos than mine. Truly. Parker plays, eats, sleeps, and breathes dinosaurs! So when talks of his 5th birthday party began (11 3/4 months ago), we both knew exactly what would be in the works. I bought these tiny little dinosaurs for super cheap on Amazon here and thought they'd be perfect atop some simple cupcakes. I also found this green shredded candy "sprinkles" that I used as grass. We had 3-feet-tall blow-up dinosaurs, masks . . .
Peaches are one of the best fruits of summer, so we totally thought they deserved their own week. We've loved infusing them with earthy, basil flavors, sweet and spicy, refreshing and minty, chocolate and caramel, deep-fried, and of course, right off the tree! Try one of our new recipes this week, or any of our classics. Millions of peaches, peaches for me...
