Everything You Need for Game Day

We’re Ravens fans and would have loved to see them return to the Big Game this year, but it wasn’t in the cards. We’ll still be watching the game, enjoying some yummy food, and laughing (or sometimes crying) at the new commercials.

We gathered everything you need for the Big Game! You'll find dips, desserts, decorations, finger foods, and more!

Spaceship Building and Pop Secret Space Bar Snack

Thanks to Pop Secret for sponsoring this post.

It is snowing here today (expecting up to 4 inches) and we’re spending the day inside building a spaceship. Some kids build forts, but we build spaceships and rocket ships. To go along with our spaceship building, we made a yummy snack using Pop Secret. Because you know… snacks make everything better.

Try this recipe for Pop Secret Space Popcorn Bars! #PopSecretForts #ad

While Charlie was working on building his spaceship, I got the Pop Secret Caramel Popcorn going.

Bacon & Pepperoni Pizza Roll-Ups

I have partnered with Hormel Foods as part of their Extended Family Blogger Program. While Hormel Foods provides me with material and yummy food, all opinions are my own.

This is our first month as a Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger. What that means is that we’ll be sharing recipes, getting sneak peeks at new products, and revisiting our old favorites. It was so exciting getting a giant cooler delivered to the house. Owen thought it was for him and helped me open it up. Inside we found all sorts of fun Hormel Foods products.

With football playoffs in full swing right now, we’re always up for some easy appetizers that make perfect party food.

14 One Pot Dinners

It’s already almost two weeks into the new year and we’re still in a whirlwind from the holidays. I love making dinner, but hate dealing with the mess! Sometimes by the time dinner is done, it seems there are more dirty dishes in the house than there are clean.

Today I’m sharing some dishes with you that will leave you with just one pot or skillet to clean!

One Pot Dinners that will leave your belly full and your sink empty!

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD

I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network.  No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own.  This post may also contain affiliate links.

All of a sudden I feel ridiculously old. This year The Little Mermaid is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! How is that even possible? I remember watching this movie when it first came out like it was yesterday! And you better believe I preordered my copy on blu-ray 6 months before it was released.

The Little Mermaid Legacy Collection

The CD cover and 20-page booklet include new artwork from Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios who you may recognize from Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph. It really is beautiful! And if you can’t remember the words to some of your favorite songs, the lyrics are right there in the book.
