P&G Stock Up And Save Event At Walmart + GIVEAWAY

The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G.

Spring isn't just about cleaning out the clutter and starting fresh. It's also the season to save and stock up on household must-have items. Shopping for those everyday products we use on a daily basis is a necessity and at times a bit pricey. Once you fill your cart with toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning products you have already made a dent in your pocket. Now is the time to take advantage of the Walmart Stock and Save Event where you can get your favorite P&G products for affordable prices through the month of April. If there is one thing you can never have too much of it's toilet paper. There is nothing worse than running out of that essential and we've all experienced the anguish of reaching for an empty roll!

Salted Caramel SNACK ATTACK Brownies

I'm a sucker for sweet and salty desserts, nothing new. They are easily my favorite thing to create and consume even though I have been trying REALLY hard to behave myself lately. With the exception of a small piece of pie on Easter I have been sugar-sober for over a month now. That's a long time for someone that enjoys baking weekly and has a sweet tooth that could kill.  I have still been actively working on my "baking bucket list" checklist and today I finally made salted caramel sauce from scratch. What took me so long? This stuff is incredible! Sweet, salty, creamy, and gooey - now that's inspiration. Easily a future addiction.

Sparkling Strawberry Floats For Spring

This post has been facilitated by Zevia but my love for the fizzy drink is all my own!

Did you enjoy your Easter? We sure did. I survived the food induced coma from last weekend and am ready to soak up the rest of Spring. The weather has been beautiful here in Florida. For once it isn't unbearably hot, humid, and raining. We've been spending much more time enjoying being outside while winding down after a long day at school. If your kids are anything like mine then the first thing they do when they walk through the door is request a snack before they start homework. Toodie's preference is always vanilla ice cream with chocolate powder sprinkled on top. Apparently, this is "healthy" because ice cream is made from milk and milk comes from cows and cows are animals that live on a farm. The logic of a little person. This is not exactly mom's idea of a nutritious snack even though it looks as yummy as it sounds.

Marshmallow Easter Egg Cupcakes

Spring is in the air and I love absolutely everything that it entails. With Easter being a mere six days away I have been busy stuffing eggs with candy, putting the finishing touches on Toodie's basket, and thinking of a few treats to make for our family get together on Sunday. Like the majority of the holidays, my mom leaves the dessert table up to me and that's a lot of pressure. I must make something special!  This year I wanted to keep it simple and thought these colorful cupcakes would be an adorable after dinner dessert for all ages to enjoy. Topped with vanilla buttercream frosting and chocolate covered PEEP® marshmallow eggs- these cupcakes will make your dessert table sparkle and shine!

Savory Sweet Potato And Egg Breakfast Hash [GIVEAWAY]

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Eggland's Best in participation with their "Chief Egg Officer" contest.

Breakfast is said to be the meal of champions but I prefer my my morning favorites other times of the day. In fact, there are many instances in which I have turned down a big juicy steak and baked potato for a cheesy omelet. I think I've always been that way too. I remember diving into the box a cereal everyday after elementary school and eating a big bowl most nights for dinner when I was pregnant. The whole concept of breakfast only as a morning tradition quickly faded away. How can you blame me? Eggs, bacon, hash browns, pancakes, waffles - the list goes on - are some of the yummiest foods out there!

REESE'S Peanut Butter Basketball Cupcakes

Game day grub has been a popular topic on the blog lately and now that we're in the middle of basketball season I have an excuse to create another festive treat to please my favorite fans. After preparing this savory dip I needed something sweet to counteract those spicy flavors. Creamy peanut butter and milk chocolate is one of my favorite combinations. Truthfully, you can't really go wrong with these two on their own or together. You can create so many different desserts with these two classic ingredients but my favorite would be using them to spruce up a good ol' cupcake.

An Easter Basket Fit For A FROZEN Queen

When I think of Easter there are a few things that come to mind: baskets stuffed with surprises, egg hunts in the backyard, and coloring hard boiled eggs with the family. As Toodie has gotten older this holiday has become much more exciting each year. We've been able to create our own traditions and make long lasting memories that she will always cherish. When I was her age my favorite part of Easter was waking up to the one-of-a-kind Easter basket that my mom would put together each and every year. I was an only child and she always out did herself. Of course, at the time I thought it was the Easter bunny but at some point I kind of caught on. When she started including makeup and gas gift cards I had a hunch she was the one behind these incredible baskets.
