I cannot be the only non-drinker that loves watching Tipsy Bartender. He’s passionate about his work, and he always combines innovative, awesome flavors in his drinks. But I never get to try his fun recipes because, as I said, I don’t drink. But when I saw his Kiwi Margarita recipe, I knew I had to re-create it for all of my non-drinking friends! It’s too bright, too fun, and too delicious not to re-create, virgin-style! With Cinco de Mayo less than a month away, you’ll be all set with this delicious recipe.
In case you missed it, this week I am sharing a ton of ideas (over 40 of them!) for Easter ideas for teens that won’t break the bank. Seriously, if you’ve ever gone Easter shopping for a teen, then you know how challenging finding the perfect gift can be. Whether you have a writer or a comic book enthusiast, a foodie or a gamer, an athlete or a pinterest-aholic, I’ve got some ideas to share.
This recipe for DIY Unicorn Kinetic Sand may contain affiliate links.
I love kinetic sand. There’s just something so peaceful about squishing it, shaping it, and playing with it. But what I didn’t realize was that I was spending way too much on the kinetic sand at the store… making it at home in my favorite unicorn colors is easy and affordable! Kinetic sand is such a great therapeutic tool, too. My son has autism, and allowing him to play with kinetic sand while listening to me read has been a huge help to him when it comes to focusing. It’s also a great sensory tool! Here’s how to make your very own kinetic sand at home!
This recipe for stuffed mushrooms may contain affiliate links.
My mom is devastated, y’all. Seriously, her favorite Italian restaurant, Zio’s, closed their doors unexpectedly… and she didn’t even get to go one last time. One of our absolute favorite dishes to share was an appetizer… stuffed mushrooms. Loaded Italian Stuffed Mushrooms. Oh my goodness, these were good. Now, the chef wouldn’t share his recipe when asked, but he was kind enough to give me an idea of the ingredients they had in theirs, and this is a super close approximation to the real deal… but in jumbo form. See, they used baby bella mushrooms for their dish, but I’m all about the full-sized portabella mushrooms for mine.

Easter Sunday is now less than two weeks away, and we’re planning out our menu around here. Don’t expect our Easter Sunday menu to have ham or lamb or anything, though… we’ve stepped up our game with something that the whole family is going to love. Ribs. See, I don’t know about you, but I love an extra tender, extra juicy rib dinner. But my favorite Easter treat is those delicious caramel-filled eggs, so I’ve decided to have my caramel… and my ribs… at the same time. It’s not as crazy as it sounds; if you’ve ever had a honey barbecue sauce and liked it, you’re going to love these amazing caramel ribs, too. They’re sweet, they’re savory, and they have a little zap of ginger. Perfect for Easter, or for any spring and summer day…

Y’all know that I absolutely love Walmart Family Mobile. Just a couple of weeks ago, I shared all about how I invested in a smartphone for my business with Walmart Family Mobile, so I could keep rocking my business on the go, but that phone plan came with some extra perks that we are loving, like a VUDU credit every month! We decided that the movie credit makes for the perfect work break, which is why we’ve been staying intentional about family movie nights! I’ve figured out 5 foolproof tips for having the best movie night ever.

We all have Very Last First Times in our lives. A very last first day of school, a very last first time doing the monkey bars all by yourself, a very last first thing that you’re doing all on your own. For the main character in Very Last First Time, it is the very last first time she’ll ever walk on the seabed by herself. After that very last first time, she will have already done it before. It won’t be a first time anymore.
The book Very Last First Time is so packed with things you can explore and learn: amazing information about Inuit culture, how mussels are gathered, and what an arctic tundra is like. It’s also packed with information about family relationships. It discusses how to handle fear and important situations. Of course, it is also about growing up and tackling new milestones. Maybe you’re enjoying the book with your child for fun. Or, perhaps you’re rowing it as a part of your Five in a Row curriculum. You might even be tackling the book as part of a unit study. Regardless, there are plenty of fun Very Last First Time activities to do with this book!

Being from Kansas City, not much beats a good barbecue rib. Burnt ends, sure, but when it comes to ribs, around here, it’s usually barbecue. Now, I love barbecue ribs, don’t get me wrong. But sometimes I really want to take it up a few notches and to do that, I have to get spicy. That’s when these spicy-as-heck sticky ribs come in.
Why spicy-as-heck? Because you’re using a whole heck of a lot of hot sauce on them. And why sticky? Because to offset all of that spice, you have to have a little bit of sweet, and that comes in the form of brown sugar that caramelizes on the ribs and makes these stick to your fingers (in the best way… you’ll be licking them clean, trust me). You can bake these in your oven or toss them on the grill and have these spicy ribs practically falling off of the bone.
This post on Homemade Toaster Pastries may contain affiliate links.
One of my favorite childhood breakfasts was Pop Tarts. I just love something grab-and-go in the mornings, especially because I’m a reluctant breakfast-eater. I know the importance of it now, but it’s taken me years to even be that excited about breakfast. Toaster Pastries just have that awesome feeling that transports you back to childhood, and there’s something nostalgic about biting into a toaster pastry in your favorite flavor. But you can actually make a homemade toaster pastry (or semi-homemade toaster pastry) that is so easy and so delicious, you may think twice about buying the store-bought ones.

These days, it seems like there are fewer and fewer Stay at Home Moms and more moms who would consider themselves Work at Home Moms. Every day in my news feed, I see another friend promoting and rocking her home-based business, whether she is selling leggings or lotions, writing a blog, or creating handcrafted items. I love seeing the great businesses my friends are working from home, and I love when they support my small business, too, but it seriously shocks me that so many of them aren’t utilizing their smartphone data in the smartest possible way to rock their at-home business! After launching my site about 5 years ago, and after trying direct sales more than a few times over the last decade, I’ve found some really awesome ways to really maximize your business with a smartphone!
