Have you ever made cake pops? I’ve made them a couple of times and I think they’re pretty much the cutest things ever. I mean who wouldn’t love cute little cake balls on sticks? However, I’ve always been a bit intimidated by the more intricate designs – hello, cute rose cake pops. I’m kind of a perfectionist, so I want things to be picture perfect and if not, this girl would end up redoing them over and over again. And let’s face it, ain’t no one got time for that.
Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having an amazing week! Because I adore and appreciate you guys so much, I’ve collaborated with some of my favorite bloggers for another fantastic reader appreciation giveaway!
If you’ve read MBA for a little while, you know that I absolutely love my Blendtec blender. We use it almost every single day to create delicious smoothies, milkshakes, soups and so much more. It’s honestly become the workhorse in our kitchen and is definitely the most used countertop appliance. Shhhhh don’t tell our stand mixer!
Halloween just got a little cuter with these neon-hued, super silly decorated monster cookies.
I don’t do scary – nope, not this girl. I can’t even watch the Walking Dead for longer than 5 minutes without nightmares for days. And I’m pretty proud to say that I’ve made my way through a ton of haunted houses without ever opening my eyes. In high school, I had a pretty solid game plan of strategically positioning myself in line and latching onto the person in front of me. Worked like a charm.
Snickers Caramel Apple Salad is a deliciously sweet dessert that’s perfect for Fall. Snickers candy bars are combined with Granny Smith apples, cheesecake pudding, whipped topping and salted caramel sauce – grab a spoon and dig in!
A couple weeks ago, we took Elle on her first trip to the apple orchard – complete with apple picking, hayrides, kettle corn (the best I’ve ever tasted) and loads of family. And guess how long she stayed awake? About 20 whole minutes. Basically it was enough time to place her face into a wooden pumpkin cutout for photos, take a brief hayride to the orchard, and snap a few more photos of her picking apples. I consider this a total baby victory.
