Follow Me Through The Looking Glass to LA #ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent

Who wants to follow me Through The Looking Glass next month as I fly off to Los Angeles to the Red Carpet event for Disney’s Alice, Through The Looking Glass?  I could not be more excited to take all of you along as we explore the world of Alice!  I have to admit, I “squee’d” a bit, okay a LOT when I got the invitation from Disney.  This is going to be the red carpet event of the year, and OH MY GOODNESS, Johnny Depp!  Did I mention Johnny Depp?  Then there’s P!nk!  P!nk will write and record an original song for the film and you can get a behind-the-scenes look at P!nk’s cover of “White Rabbit” in this featurette.

Follow Me Through The Looking Glass to LA #ThroughTheLookingGlassEvent

While I am in LA,  I will also attend a special press day for the In-Home release of Zootopia (available on Blu-ray and Digital HD on 6/7) where I will interview members of the creative team behind the making of the movie including Directors Byron Howard & Rich Moore and Raymond Persi (Story Artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios and the voice of “Flash”) and get a chance to step into the recording booth and voice a character from the film!  To say I’m a little bit excited about this whole trip would be the understatement of the year!  This is going to be so much fun and I could not be more excited to share it with all of you :D

Easy Classic Tres Leches Cake

Easy Classic Tres Leches Cake

Easy Classic Tres Leches Cake

I am going to share my favorite Easy Classic Tres Leches Cake recipe with you today.  My family loves tres leches cake, but they are very picky about who prepares it.  With all of this milk, it can be tricky if you leave it sitting out too long.  If you’ve ever had a tres leches cake that was sitting out too long, then you know exactly what I’m talking about LOL  We never buy them from the store.  Sometimes I’ll order them at a restaurant if I’m very familiar with that restaurant.  If you make this fresh at home, though, it is super easy and tastes amazing!  If you love a sweet, moist cake with a light icing, then this is going to quickly become one of your favorite cake recipes.  You can add fruit to the top of the icing too.  Strawberries are a favorite topping around here.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Easy Classic Tres Leches Cake

Gather your ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 + 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2  cup (1 stick) softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1  can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1  can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
  • 1  cup  whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy (whipping) cream

Get to baking:

  • In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, and vanilla. Mix on high for about 3 minutes. The batter will become pale and thick.
  • Sift together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture and butter to the egg mixture and mix on low until just blended.
  • Pour batter into a 9X13  baking dish that has been greased and floured.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a fork inserted in center comes out clean.
  • While the cake is baking, blend the three milks together with a wisk in a medium bowl.
  • Carefully remove the cake from the oven and place on a heat proof surface.  While the cake is still warm, poke the top of the cake with a fork.
  • Pour half of the milk mixture over the entire cake and let it get absorbed. Once the milk is absorbed, slowly pour more milk on top of the cake until no more milk can be absorbed.
  • While the cake is cooling, whip the cream and 1/4 cup of sugar with a mixer, until fluffy.
  • Once the cake is cool, spread whipped cream mixture over the top of the cake.  Garnish with cinnamon.
  • Enjoy!

I Explored Bird Island With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

I am so excited to finally start sharing with all of you my amazing trip to Maui, Hawaii, where I explored Bird Island with the Angry Birds!  This was the most amazingly beautiful trip I have ever been on!  Bird Island is such a majestic and magical place and I just can’t wait to take all of you along on the journey.  One of our first stops in our exploration of Bird Island was Maui Tropical Plantation.  Just the view driving up to the plantation we had a  breathtaking view of the plantation with Maui mountains in the background.  I could not wait to get out and explore this beautiful plantation.

I Explored Bird Island With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

Our narrated TRAM TOUR offers a unique educational opportunity to learn the origins and harvest techniques of Hawaii’s commercial fruit crops.

I Explored Bird Island With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

As I explored the island, I came upon the this beautiful “gear pond” just outside of the Mill House Restaurant.  The gear pond had a breathtaking view of the plantation and mountains with huge rusted gears as a backdrop!  The views were amazing.

Maui Tropical Plantation is also home to Maui Zipline Company.  Maui Zipline Company is Maui’s newest and most family friendly zipline course! This zipline course zips over the tropical plantation’s beautiful landscape of palms with a gorgeous view of the mountains in the background.   There are five side-by-side ziplines and they range from 300 to 900 feet.  I had so much fun watching the Angry Birds get ready to zip!

The picture below is one I took of the Manilla palm they have at Maui Tropical Plantation.  The Manilla Palm is also called the Christmas Palm because of the color of the fruit.  They become bright scarlet and will stay that color during the Christmas season.  This palm is small in size compared to other palms, but grows to about 15-25 feet.  These palms are found growing naturally in the Phillipines.  ~ Maui Tropical Plantation

This was such an amazing day and the perfect way to celebrate The Angry Birds Movie.  I could not think of a better way to help these birds deal with their “anger issues” and calm before the big release of their movie on May 20!

I Explored Bird Island With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

About The Angry Birds Movie:

In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry.

The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Inside Out), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), as well as Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, next year’s Ghostbusters), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project, Neighbors), Hannibal Buress (Broad City, Why? With Hannibal Buress), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black), Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, screenplay by Jon Vitti, and executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.

Fun and Easy Mexican Street Corn

Fun and Easy Mexican Street Corn

Fun and Easy Mexican Street Corn

If you like corn, at all, you are going to LOVE this fun and easy Mexican street corn!  This is one of those dishes that I do not get to make often enough.  Every time I make it, I wonder why I waited so long to make it LOL  This Mexican street corn is so super tasty.  You can even cut it off the cob or use drained, canned corn in place of the corn on the cob and make a dish to take to family gatherings.  You will not regret making it.  We make this on the grill too.  The instructions are the same for the grill, except we usually take it out of the foil after it is cooked and let it get a little seared by the grill.  Mix it up and make it yours.  This is so much fun to make!  I hope your family loves it as much as we do <3

Fun and Easy Mexican Street Corn

Gather your ingredients:

  • 5 ears fresh corn, husked

Spread:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic
  • Juice from one lime or 1 Tbsp of lime juice

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (most recipes call for Cotija cheese, but we prefer Parmesan)
  • 1/2 tsp teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 wooden skewers

Get to cooking:

  • Pierce the end of each clean ear of corn with skewer (I break these off to about 4 inches before doing this).
  • Wrap each ear of corn in foil and place directly on the rack of an oven preheated to 400 degrees and bake for 20 minutes.  You can now (carefully) unwrap the corn and cook for an additional 5 minutes on each side to “brown” the corn if you prefer.
  • While the corn is cooking, mix the ingredients for the spread in a small mixing bowl and set aside, then combine the ingredients for the topping and set aside.
  • Carefully remove the ears of corn from the oven and place on a large platter.  Spread the spread all over each corn cob, then sprinkle evenly with the topping.  Serve while hot.
  • ENJOY!

Maximize Energy and Save Money This Earth Day with LG Studio #bbyed

Are you ready to maximize energy and save money this Earth Day with LG Studio?  Earth day is just around the corner and Best Buy is celebrating with an amazing Earth Day Sale!  In just a few days, on April 22, we will be celebrating mother Earth.  We have been looking at new refrigerators and are in love with this new line from LG Studio at Best Buy.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they save energy too!  Sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it in the end to save money, but these brands speak for themselves.  Energy efficiency at it’s best will definitely save us money.  With three rapidly growing kiddos, I know we won’t go wrong with this collection.  I guess this is a good time to tell my husband we need a new dishwasher too!  Maybe we can get them all at one time with this great deal!

Maximize Energy and Save Money This Earth Day with LG Studio #bbyed

Thanks to recent improvements in insulation and compressors, today’s refrigerators use much less energy than older models. With an ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator, you can maximize your energy and dollar savings without sacrificing the features you want.

Slash your energy bills.

ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators are about 9-10 percent more energy efficient than models that meet the federal minimum energy efficiency standard.

Replace your old fridge for bigger savings.

An estimated 170 million refrigerators and refrigerator-freezers are currently in use in the United States. More than 60 million refrigerators are over 10 years old, costing consumers $4.7 billion a year in energy costs. By properly recycling your old refrigerator and replacing it with a new ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator, you can save between $35–$300 on energy costs over its lifetime. Use the ENERGY STAR Savings Calculator to find out exactly how much money you’ll save by replacing your existing refrigerator.

Protect the environment.

ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators use less energy and help us reduce our impact on the environment. If all refrigerators sold in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified, the energy cost savings would grow to more than $400 million each year and 8 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from 750,000 vehicles.

The New Trailer and Poster for TMNT: Out Of The Shadows #TMNT2

Oh my goodness, my kids were a little too excited to see Casey Jones make an appearance in the new trailer for TMNT: Out of The Shadows!  If your family loves Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles like our family does, you have to show them the trailer for the new film.  We were checking it out just as they were getting ready to walk out the door to school and, I’m sure, it will be the talk of the fourth and fifth grade today (after all of their school work is done, of course).  You know, I kind of have a soft spot for these guys myself.  They’re a lot of fun to watch, but also the MUSIC!  Oh my goodness, the soundtrack of the TMNT films are always the best mix of today’s music with the 90’s hip-hop I love.  So, gather your kiddos (and their friends) and take a look at the trailer.  You’ll be happy you did!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:  Out of The Shadows is in-theaters June 3, 2016!

Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to theaters this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongsideApril O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.

Stock Up On Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

Stock Up On Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart.  All opinions are 100% my own.

Stock Up On All Of Your Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

Have you heard of the Stock Up Save Event going on at Walmart?  Spring doesn’t have to just be about cleaning.  This year Walmart wants it to be about stocking up! You can enjoy savings all month long just by heading to your local walmart or visiting stockupsave.com!  You will get big savings on your family’s favorite brands like Bounty, Tide, Pampers, Charmin and so much more.  Right now, when you stock up, you can save even more by checking out rewards from P&G with the Ibotta app!  I have been using Ibotta on my smartphone for a while now and absolutely love it!  It is free and super easy to use.

Stock Up On All Of Your Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

I love getting packages from Walmart, especially when they have a special savings event going on.  This means that I have one less trip to the store with three kids in tow.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love shopping in the store at Walmart, but for getting everyday essentials, home delivery is the best!

I am able to get all of my family’s favorite brands all from the convenience of my couch.  I love saving money, to the extent, I use coupons every chance I get.  The awesome thing is that you can often find coupons to pair with these great sales and save even more when you go in the store.

Stock Up On All Of Your Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

I’m not sure how Walmart knows, but there are some brands my family just refuses to budge on and Charmin is one of them.  Charmin is the softest and never clogs our septic system.  With three kids in the house who are not always the best at cleaning or flushing, Charmin is a life-saver for this mom.

Stock Up On All Of Your Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

Razors are another item that we don’t budge on.  Our oldest daughter had epilepsy when she was younger, which left her with permanent hand tremors.  The handles on these Venus razors are the only ones that help her grip and don’t leave her with cuts on her legs.  My husband is also very particular with his razors.  These Gillette Mach 3 razors are perfect for his sensitive skin.

Stock Up On All Of Your Summer Essentials And Save With Walmart #StockUpSave

Dawn y’all!  Dawn is a must!  I really do not see how people survive without it LOL  It is the only dish washing detergent we will use.  My husband loves to use it to wash the cars and dogs as well.  Dawn is the all-around cleaner for our house.

Stock up for your family at Walmart.com:

​You can stock up on these great products at your local Walmart, or online at stockupsave.com.

Laugh Like A Girl With Jacky Ha-Ha #HAHABookClub

Laugh Like A Girl With Jacky Ha-Ha #HAHABookClub

This post is sponsored by BSM Media.  All opinions are 100% my own.

hahabookclub

If you enjoy having fun with your daughter; you are going to definitely want to laugh like a girl with Jacky Ha-Ha!  Do you ever sit down with your daughter and a good book.  I mean, a book that isn’t for school or learning, but just for having fun?  I can tell you that every book I have ever read “with” my children has actually been me reading “to” them.  That was not the case with Jacky Ha-Ha.  Hannah, my youngest of three children has always struggled to read, which means that she has never found any joy from books.  Jacky Ha-Ha was so different for us.  We both felt an immediate connection to Jacky and could just hear her in the classroom!  She is hilarious!  All of her jokes, pranks and antics will have you and your daughter rolling!

jacky haha cover

About Jacky Ha-Ha:

In his new middle grade novel that debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, James Patterson introduces his hilarious new heroine, Jacky Ha-Ha, a class clown who makes people laugh with her so they can’t laugh at her.

With her irresistible urge to tell a joke in every situation–even when she really, really shouldn’t–twelve-year-old Jacky Ha-Ha loves to make people laugh. And cracking wise helps distract her from thinking about not-so-funny things in her life, like her mom serving in a dangerous, faraway war, and a dad who’s hardly ever home.

Brand New Trailer For The BFG #TheBFG

Brand New Trailer For The BFG #TheBFG

I am so stinkin’ excited to share the latest trailer for The BFG, which includes new, never-before-seen footage of the BFG (Big Friendly Giant). Until now, we haven’t seen what is really happening with the Sophie and the Giant.  Although the trailer doesn’t give us all of the answers, it sure does paint an amazing picture of this wonderful film!  My kids have all read the book and are anxiously awaiting July 1, when they can go see one of their favorite books hit the “big screen”.   The film, which is directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the best-selling book by Roald Dahl, hits theaters everywhere on July 1st!

Brand New Trailer For The BFG #TheBFG

From Disney:

The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The BFG” to life. Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s “The BFG” tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. “I think it was kind of genius of Roald Dahl to be able to empower the children. It was very, very brave of him to introduce that combination of darkness and light which was so much Disney’s original signature in a lot of their earlier works like in ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Fantasia,’ ‘Snow White’ and ‘Cinderella,’ and being able to do scary, but also be redemptive at the same time and teach a lesson, an enduring lesson, to everyone, it was a wonderful thing for Dahl to have done, and it was one of the things that attracted me to want to direct this Dahl book,” says Spielberg.

The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell.  He is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.

New Clips and Featurette from Disney’s The Jungle Book! #JungleBook

New Clips and Featurette from Disney's The Jungle Book! #JungleBook

I have  two new clips and a new featurette with never-before-seen interviews from the cast and filmmakers including Jon Favreau, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, Idris Elba, Sir Ben Kingsley and Scarlett Johansson from Disney’s upcoming live action The Jungle Book to share with you!  There are so many reasons why I cannot believe April is almost here!  Of course Disney knows how to make tax day a LOT less taxing with a trip to the theater to see The Jungle Book :D  I don’t know about you, but it will definitely take the sting out of sending off my taxes.  Not to mention how excited my kiddos will be to finally get to see the film they have been anticipating every since they found out it was in the making last year!

“The Legacy” Featurette

From Disney:

Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito as the voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. The wild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.
