Candy Corn Construction Paper Craft


I have a super cute, festive and fun craft to share with you today! It's so easy, too! I created a candy corn template for you to print (you can find the link below) and everything else is affordable and easy to find. My 3 year old daughter had so much fun with this and was so proud of herself when she finished! I hung it on the fridge so we can enjoy it all season long :)


Supplies:
Yellow, Orange & White Construction Paper (1 sheet of each should be enough for 2-3 candy corns)
Glue Stick

Directions:
Print off however many candy corn templates you would like to use.

Tear the construction paper up into small (but not super tiny) pieces.

Run your glue stick over the candy corn and put each color where you want on the printed template.

{Starbucks Copycat} Pumpkin Scones


I've been pretty much obsessed with Starbucks Pumpkin Scones ever since they first started having them every Fall. Yes, I'am one of those Pumpkin obsessed people as soon as it all hits the store shelves, but I will say I do have my limits, Pumpkin Spice Pringles? No thanks. These scones are something special though. They are just the perfect Pumpkin treat in every way. Every time I've tried to get my hands on one at Starbucks since they've been back I've failed. I guess everyone else loves them too. Since I was having no luck I decided to make my own! These are just about spot on and are now going to be my favorite Fall treat to make at home. If you're having no luck getting them at Starbucks like me, or if you just love to bake yummy Pumpkin treats, make these to enjoy asap!

How-To: Oven Smoked Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches


These sandwiches were the bomb. Seriously SO good. They have a distinct flavor that I don't think we could have achieved if we hadn't cooked them alongside Mesquite wood chips. My husband and I recently experimented smoking 2 different meats, 1 on our grill, and 1 in the oven and they were both major successes. So if if you love the taste of smoked meat, but don't have a smoker - you CAN still do it at home! I will share the grilling method soon as well, but for now, read on and get to smokin' ASAP!

Mexican Grilled Chicken


As Summer is coming to an end, it is actually more enjoyable to grill out here in Texas. Lucky for us, we can pretty much grill out year-round. I love to make my own marinades or anything we grill, and this is one of my favorites. It's so simple and easy to throw together, and tastes incredible on chicken. I also have done steak this same way for fajitas, and it's out of this world. I bet you have almost everything for it already on hand, so next time you want to switch it up - give this a try!

Spicy Chicken Parmesan Meatballs


Awhile back Olive Garden came out with these new chicken meatballs, and my husband tried them and fell in love and I'm pretty sure he's gotten them every time we've been there since. I usually have a taste every time because they are that good! I've been wanting to re-create them at home for awhile, and finally got around to it. They were awesome! They tasted very similar and went so perfectly with the sauce we chose, which you can find on my blog here: Tomato Cream Sauce. Give them a try!

m&m Chips Deluxe Sugar Cookies


Happy Friday! This is a great easy and simple cookie that everyone should have in their arsenal. They are soft, yet chewy, and super buttery tasting. I love how light in color they are, it really makes the m&m's stand out beautifully. Give them a try soon!
