From Marvel:

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in twocamps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters NOW.

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.

Stress Relief Yoga With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

I am busting to share our morning doing Stress Relief Yoga With The Angry Birds while I was on Bird Island last month!  Y’all, I do not have any bad pictures from the trip!  I was editing photos for this post and had the hardest time picking out the best photos to share the day with all of you.  Every picture I took looks just like a postcard of Hawaii.  I didn’t even use a great camera.  I used my phone for all of these photos.  Yes, it is that beautiful in Maui :D  It didn’t hurt, at all, that The Four Seasons is a gorgeous hotel with amazing native flowers blooming everywhere I turned.  Honestly, I don’t see why these birds were ever angry LOL

From culinary events and spa therapies to golf and cycling with the pros, Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea offers endless ways to make your dream vacation a reality. ~ Four Seasons Resort Maui At Wailea

Stress Relief Yoga With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

So, it happened!  I met *THE* Angry Birds.  You know what?  They didn’t seem angry at all!  Maybe it was because I made them happy, but it is more likely that Maui makes them happy.  We were ready!  Let’s get ready to YOGAAAAAAA!    I haven’t tried yoga since before my pregnancy with my 11 year old.  Yes, I’m aware, as my husband says:  “It’s just stretching”.  I can tell you, though, yoga is much more than just stretching.  I was a little nervous, but how could I be stressed surrounded by such beauty and so much fun with The Angry Birds?!  So, I did it!  I grabbed my towel, found my mat, and got ready to YOGA!

Stress Relief Yoga With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

Maui offers a stunning array of tropical landscapes (think beaches, rain forests and volcanoes) and outdoor activities, including everything from a round of golf on a championship course to a full-day excursion aboard an outrigger canoe. Also home to upscale shopping, fine dining, arts and entertainment, this is an ideal destination for a tropical getaway. To help make the most of your next trip, we asked Sam Wilhelm of the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea to share tips for experiencing the very best of Maui. ~ Four Seasons Resort Maui At Wailea

Stress Relief Yoga With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

Well, here I am!  I’m all ready to yoga with my super cool friends Enza (of Enza’s Bargains) and Marybeth (of Baby Savers).  We were ready to do this!  I even have proof!  I think they call this pose the “downward dog” (be happy you didn’t get the rear view :D )  I had a blast doing yoga on Bird Island and cannot wait to try again.  Maui is gorgeous.  I was a little sad to leave, but my kiddos were ready for me to be home and I couldn’t wait to give them giant hugs!  Being a mommy is the best, especially when you can do fun things like Yoga with The Angry Birds <3  Be sure to stay tuned, there are tons more fun adventures coming up!

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.

I Explored Bird Island With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

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

I Explored Bird Island With The Angry Birds #AlohaAngryBirds

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!

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!
