Angel Food Cake Shot Glass Dessert

I've been seeing edible shot glasses all over the internet lately and I think they are awesome. I decided that for Valentine's Day, I'd try making an angel food cake shot glass dessert. I was going to make edible angel food cake shot glasses and fill it with whip cream and raspberries. Doesn't that sound fun? Well, my idea didn't go as planned! First I went to my local store and picked up some shot glass molds. I got home and quickly discovered that you can't use these molds for baking. I went back to the store and found out that you can only get the baking shot glass molds online (at least with that store). To Amazon I went to order my molds using Prime 2-day free shipping. Then I waited... I was so excited when the shot glass molds came in the mail! I hopped online to see if there were any tricks to help with making my angel food cake shot glass dessert, but found nothing related to angel food cake. That should have been my first clue. Oh well, I'd press on through … [Read more...]

10 Back To School Planning Tips

These aren't your normal back to school planning tips though...hint, buy a bottle of wine! 1) Assess the clothes situation Go through all your kids clothes to see what they have for this coming school year. Learn that one or more of your children has had a growth spurt sometime this summer and you have to buy an entirely new wardrobe. 2) Drink a glass of wine 3) Assess the supply situation Go through the school supply list you received from your child's teacher and assess what you can reuse and what you have to buy.

7 Things I Will Not Apologize For While Being A Mom

1)  My messy house. The one room that's supposed to hold all the clutter is too full to keep the door closed. 2)  Mac and Cheese for dinner. My friends secretly feed it to their kids even though they post a deliciously healthy meals on Facebook. 3)  My flabby stomach. I didn't feel like wearing my Spanx today. 4)  TV as a babysitter. An hour of quiet time does a world of good for my attitude! 5)  Telling you to stop making me laugh. No seriously, stop making me laugh, I'm peeing myself! 6)  Yoga pants. Women who aren't moms secretly wish they were moms so they would have an excuse to wear them all day. 7)  Forgetting our lunch date. A glass of wine + lack of sleep = I don't remember anything I did or planned past 7:00 pm last night. What won't you apologize for?   … [Read more...]

What I DON’T Like About My GE® Dishwasher #spon

So far you've been hearing all the good things I like about my fabulous new GE® Hybrid Stainless Steel Dishwasher.  You've heard how much better it is than my old dishwasher, how quiet it is, how well it cleans, and all about the ins and outs of it.  Well, today I'm going to tell you what I DON'T like about it.  After all, what's a fair review if you don't point out some negatives? #1--My biggest compliant--it's large.  Not large as in actual size, but large in the fact that it holds a lot of dishes, 12 full place settings to be exact.  Why am I complaining about that?  Because now I actually have to sit and listen to military/war stories instead of washing dishes during family gatherings. #2--It's got the "clean" light indicator.  Now I can't play dumb and say to hubby that I thought the dishes were still dirty and that's why I didn't put them away. #3--It's quite.  I know I said in a previous post that I liked how quiet it is.  That was before I got stuck actually … [Read more...]
