Blood Orange Spooky Slush Punch

This spooky slush punch is citrus flavored and blood red- perfect for serving at Halloween parties! It is made with new Organic Stevia In The Raw®, a zero-calorie sweetener that adds a delicious sweet taste to this fun drink! 
 As a fan of the original Sugar In The Raw products, I was excited to find new Organic Stevia In The Raw available at my local grocery store! I love the convenient packets for sweetening my morning cup of coffee or adding to my bowl of cereal or sliced fruit. Each packet is only three calories, but provides the sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar (which contains 32 calories)! 

I decided to try using Organic Stevia In The Raw for this punch recipe and the end result was perfectly sweetened and spooky- just like I wanted it!

Tiramisu Cold Brew Coffee

To celebrate National Coffee Day today I am sharing a delicious Tiramisu Cold Brew Coffee recipe with y'all. I use my favorite Torani brand syrups and sauces to make this coffee taste like it was made at a coffeehouse- not my own house {haha!}.

What is Cold Brew you ask?

Cold Brew coffee is slow steeped in cold water with no heat for 24 hours or so to slowly extract the flavor of the coffee. This makes a highly-concentrated, super smooth coffee. I love adding some milk and flavor syrup and serving over ice.

Check out my easy directions below for making a large batch of cold brew at home along with my favorite cold brew drink, Tiramisu Cold Brew Coffee.
#ToraniColdBrew
Torani has been a favorite brand of mine for years! I love all their syrup and sauce flavors for jazzing up my drinks and desserts!

"Torani inspires folks to taste life one flavorful experience at time…”

Country Fall Decorating on a Budget with At Home Stores

This post is sponsored by At Home stores and BSM Media. As always, all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Fall is finally here and October is right around the corner. Now that we are officially Texas residents and settled into our new home, I am ready to decorate for the season! Fall has always been my favorite. I love it all, the weather, the colors, the food, the festivals, and the smells. So to welcome fall and celebrate our new home, I decided to take a trip to At Home.
  At Home is an amazing home decor store with "endless possibilities at an unbeatable value". They carry just about everything you need for your home from holiday decor to basic household items and gift ideas.
After cruising my local At Home store and taking it all in for a while, because they really do have EVERYTHING, I decided to purchase a few fall themed items to decorate a couple plain areas of our home. My entertainment center and my coffee break area both needed to be spruced up and At Home was the perfect place to find the fall items I love. Even better their prices are low and fit in my limited decorating budget!

Beetlejuice Slime Lava Cakes

Happy Movie Monday friends!
This month's theme Halloween and everyone choose their own favorite Halloween-themed film to create a recipe or crafts inspired by that movie. I am excited to share a recipe inspired by one of my Halloween comedies: Beetlejuice.
These Slime Lava Cakes are perfect for serving at Halloween parties, move night, or heck just because they look cool! The white chocolate cakes are big enough to share and only require 6 ingredients. The lava filling looks just like slime and reminds me of my favorite green haired ghost, Beetlejuice! 
On the last Monday of each month, a group of bloggers participate in a #MovieMondayChallenge, hosted by C'mon Get Crafty! We decide on a topic, genre, or specific movie to use for inspiration and everyone gets free reign to create something wonderful!
 If you'd like to join our Facebook group, you can request an invite here.

DIY Painted Rocks for Kids by Kids

This post was sponsored by Nabisco as part of an Integrated Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.
Fall is here and my kiddos and I are having a blast in our new state, Texas. 
As a Mom with always moving, fast growing, constantly snacking kids I try to have fun activities planned for us and, of course, tasty snacks to bring along too!

My daughters' newest craft obsession is decorating rocks and hiding them in town. This activity is fun for both kids and adults and is becoming popular all over! Some call them Kindness Rocks others call them simply Painted Rocks. You can decorate them any way you'd like and hid them just about anywhere in town. There are even local websites in most towns now where you can post pictures of your rocks and give clues so people can go on rock hunts! When they find yours they can keep them or rehide.

It really is a blast and we have now hidden and found rocks in Louisiana, Florida, and Texas! Today I am sharing with you some of our creative painted rock designs and decorating tips to inspire your little ones to join in the fun along with our favorite on the go snack to pack: TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks!
These soft and tasty snacks are available at Walmart in the cookie aisle and my girls love them!
They are cute bear shaped snacks that are individually packaged and hold up well to the heat so they are ideal for park play dates, picnics, car rides, and the beach! 
Ava likes the vanilla filled and sister Stella likes chocolate!
I love that they are  made with quality ingredients such as milk, eggs and {my fave}chocolate and they contain no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors and no artificial colors!
TEDDY SOFT BAKED Filled Snacks are Mom and Kid Approved!

Smoked Tuna Dip Appetizer

Well, we are officially in Texas but lucky for us we had a fantastic Florida vacation back home before our big move! As we always do, we pigged out dined on delicious Florida seafood our whole trip. One of our favorite seafood dishes was Smoked Tuna Dip
This trip we had the Smoked Tuna Dip at Bric a Brac and Lulu's in Destin.
Check out both restaurants. They are amazing!
My husband and Ava could seriously devour a whole bowl of this stuff on their own so I knew I wanted to make it at home!
Our traditional family dinner at Acme Oyster House in Destin.
My Uncle Bill, pie baker and meat cooker extraordinaire, is the one who shared his Smoked Tuna Dip recipe with me and it was a hit with the whole fam -including the kiddos!
Picking up some fresh tuna, shrimp, grouper, and a basket full of other delicacies we just had to have from Joe Patti's Seafood Market in Pensacola. I make it a point to stop here every time I visit Pensacola {you should too}!
