Create Your Personal Christmas Wonderland With Oriental Trading #OrientalTrading This is a sponsored post from Oriental Trading. All opinions are 100% my own. Okay y’all, I’m going to go ahead and tell you; I am not super crafty.  I am, probably, mediocre when it comes to being crafty.  I have decided to start coming out of my comfort zone and dabble in some crafts.  I have shared a few over the years, but never really felt like that was my calling.  Well, Oriental Trading just lit a fire in my

Chocolate Candy Cane Reindeer

Chocolate Candy Cane Reindeer Every year, my kids and I make candy for the holidays.  This year we kind of have a candy cane theme going and started off with these chocolate candy cane reindeer.  These were so much fun and easy peasy to make.  Hannah has been “recreating” them with her own ingredients since we made them.  Mostly, she is just looking for a reason to eat Nutella LOL No, we didn’t use Nutella in these creations, but she has, somehow, found a way to make reindeer with her

Easy Churros Pinwheel

Easy Churros Pinwheel I have been creating some super fun pinwheel recipes lately.  With the Super Bowl quickly approaching, I love finding a great game day trend and getting super creative with it!  Since we love foods with a southwest flavor around our house; I thought this would be the perfect time to experiment with a churros pinwheel!  Well, first try, and they’re perfect!  Yes, I really mean perfect.  If you’re a fan of churros, or pinwheels, or chocolate; you’re probably going to fall in love with these amazing little

Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels

Pepperoni Pizza Pinwheels These pepperoni pizza pinwheels are so super easy to make!  You can switch up the ingredients and change the crust to match your, personal taste.  We love the versatility of this recipe.  This recipe is really the foundation for any pinwheel you want to create.  I used pizza dough for this recipe, but you can use crescent rolls, puff pastry,  biscuit dough, really anything you want.  Experiment on your own and get creative.  One thing I have learned about all pinwheel recipes is that you need some

Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Pinwheels

Easy Strawberry Cheesecake Pinwheels Oh my goodness y’all!  These strawberry cheesecake pinwheels are the result of me experimenting with a few recipes and trying to find something new and fresh for our Super Bowl party.  I wasn’t sure how these would turn out since pinwheels don’t always do great in the oven.  These strawberry cheesecake pinwheels turned out perfect!  You could replace the strawberries with your favorite fruit.  I would imagine they would taste great with peaches, blueberries, apples, or really any fresh or canned fruit.  I used strawberries because

5 Reasons You Need to Visit The Baton Rouge Symphony #BRSO We were recently given the opportunity to visit the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra for their Home For The Holidays performance.  I can sum up our evening in three words:  “Oh…my…goodness!”  The entire experience was perfect.  We have never been to Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra nor have we been to the River Center during the holidays.  This experience was nothing short of magical.  From Santa Clause sitting at the entrance of the theater to the beautiful musical performance of the

Creamy, Slow Cooker, Hot Chocolate You are going to love this creamy slow cooker hot chocolate recipe.  We love, love, love hot chocolate around our house.  Sometimes we wimp out and buy the powdered hot chocolate at the store, but usually we make it from scratch.  It is so, easy peasy to make it from scratch too!  our recipe changes depending on what ingredients we have on-hand, but this is the recipe we use most often.  This recipe calls for cocoa powder, but you can also use bakers chocolates or
