Hummingbird Cupcakes

29 Aug

For my grandmother’s birthday, I made Hummingbird Cupcakes (No hummingbirds were harmed in the making of this ). The first time I had Hummingbird Cake was at our English Tea Party last year and it was so good! Hummingbird cake has crushed pineapple, shredded coconut, mashed bananas and chopped walnuts mixed into the batter with a little bit of cinnamon too! Since this cake is a little sweet, I chose to use creamcheese frosting on these cupcakes. In a large cake slice, this cake can be a little too much. Cupcakes are the perfect small serving and you don’t feel too full afterward. Have you ever tried Hummingbird Cake?

Back to School

28 Aug

My little girl starts Kindergarten today. I promised myself I wouldn’t cry. One thing I know that I don’t have to worry about is lost jackets!

Martha Stewart makes these great labels! No sew clothes labels! These great stickers last 20 washes and I don’t have to worry about losing jackets and sweaters this school year!

These labels work very well for uniforms. Every Friday is spirit day for my little one and you can bet every other kid in her class will have one of these sweatshirts… now hers will easily be found! Here’s to the start of a new school year!!

Who’s Hot?

13 Aug

Who loves this Summer weather? With temps well over 100degrees in many parts of Sothern California, we are finding ways to beat the heat!!

Pool time is awesome, but sometimes a nice cold treat is just as sweet!

You could try Yvette’s Mango Ice Cream here!!

Make your coffee on the rocks here!!

A kid’s favorite, Chocolate smoothies here!!

Since it’s too hot to get the oven and burners going, we are planning on sandwiches with cold pickles on the side for dinner and chilled watermelon for desert!

How do you keep cool under the sun?
