Besides decor, fashion and DIY I’m really big on finding recipes. It’s my go to for most! I even followed a turkey recipe for my very first turkey this year! It was actually easy and good. I wanted to share some of my favorites with all of you! Especially right now that we are going to parties, potlucks and having holiday get togethers. I have a little bit of everything and all I’ve made more than once! I’ll link them Here!I’m telling you these are a hit in my house! Especially the blueberry banana bread!

Brunch ideas

Brunch ideas

Hello My friends! It always feels so long when I write. Only a week but feels like more. We survived spring break over here. I know some kids are still out. My kids are back at school. Of course the week goes so fast. I was busy, David my oldest had practice still so our days were still school like. And Breaker just likes to be home, Lol. I’m cool with that. Unless you are out of town, it’s so busy everywhere. The cool thing is we only have about a month in a half left of school and summer break starts. We have a few trips planned. Nothing big this year, We are hoping for next year to visit the hubbies motherland, Yucatan. We really want to do a family trip and to visit Tulum. So putting it out there in the universe that this family trip will happen next year!

So Today’s Post is Brunch ideas. I put together a Brunch for Easter. It was a smaller group, so I was doing all the cooking. I wanted it to be easy, pretty and delicious. I didn’t want to be stuck in the kitchen or cooking that morning. I love to enjoy my own parties. I found most of my ideas from Pinterest. Pinterest has been my jam for 8 years. I actually found a lot of bloggers I follow now from pinterest. So it’s my OG source. You can follow me also on Pinterest. I try to pin fun stuff all week.

I went with an easy decor I love simplicity I mean hello, Style Sencillo (simple). I went to the LA flower mart and I already had in mind what flowers I wanted. Made the trip easier, The hubs was happy about that.I whipped up some easy arrangements! Watching my mom for years making arrangements kinda helped out, It’s not hard and actually very fun. I bought white linen last year before christmas from LA, It’s honestly a good investment to buy your own linen rather than renting. I bought some linen square pieces from Joannes fabric and tie dyed them to get a boho look. I used a tan color tie dye. For my first time alone I think they came out pretty good. I actually want to get some linen napkins and do them a nice grey color tie dye.

For food, Ok this is the fun part. I wanted to find easy recipes that I can prep the night before, I found all of them on pinterest which makes this easy, I’ll link the recipes. Not pictured, First was an Egg casserole, Came out delicious.Also not pictured, Second was a french toast casserole, also great. I made some mini egg, bacon and cheese croissant sandwiches and some mini cuban sandwiches. All were great and prepped the night before. I just placed all in the oven when guest arrived.  I also got some fresh bagels and cut them in half so it wasn’t so overwhelming. I put together some yogurt parfaits, with granola and coconut on the side. The mini bowls for parfaits are from party city. I placed some strawberries and orange slices for a touch of fruit. Big sis bought some mini glaze donuts from krispy kreme, that was a hit! Super easy and don’t forget the mimosa bar! Happy brunching.

Till next post.

Halloween treats

Halloween treats

Hello My friends! Hope you all are doing well! I can’t believe October is almost over, Like seriously! Once Halloween passes by, all the other holidays come knocking hard! I don’t even want to think about christmas shopping! I think online shopping will be my friend this year.

I wanted to share some cute little treats I found on Pinterest! I wanted to make something for Breakers class that wasn’t so much candy. When I saw these I knew I had to make them. I did change it up a little. But still basically the same. Here’s the original link from Pinterest. 

This is what you’ll need and how to make these cute little Frankensteins!

Supplies you will need. Play-Doh, I got the small size not the smallest they have but smaller than the original size. But you can use the bigger ones if you’d like. Some Rolo chocolates, green felt, some googly eyes, sharpie and glue gun. I purchased the play-doh and Rolo candies from target, the felt and googly eyes from Michaels.

For one treat you will need this, one play-doh tube, 2 Rolo chocolates, 2 eyes, measure the green felt so you cover the tube of play-doh and cut into a strip. Lastly your sharpie for the mouth.

Once you have all the supplies ready, glue the felt around the tube of play-doh, glue the rolo candies on the side, the googly eyes have adhesive so you just have to pop those on and draw the mouth however you’d like. Doesn’t have to be perfect. Wallah you have these cute little Frankenstein treats for the littles. They will love these. I even had Breaker help make them so he can be excited to give these out to his friends at school.

I love Pinterest for all my craft ideas. I love to re-create and change it up to be my taste. Our kids get so much candy so I wanted to give something fun.

Hope you all liked this post, If you re-create them tag me in a picture on Instagram. Would love to see. Till next post!

Wishing you all a safe and Happy Halloween! From my family to yours!

Chocolate chip cookies!

Chocolate chip cookies!

Hello Ladies! My first Post for December! This is my version of 25 days of Christmas,LOL! All of December I’ll have holiday post. I hope you all checked out my easy holiday makeup look! Next week I’ll be giving all the last minute shoppers a gift guide for everyone on your list! And I have some really fun chic Holiday looks coming as well! So stay tuned and give me a follow!

Today I have my very first Blog recipe. I’m planning to do more of these, So let me know if you all will like this! I love to cook and bake but I don’t really do recipes that call for so many ingredients. I’m the type that if I find a recipe I look at the ingredients, if i don’t have 90% of them I won’t make it! Most of my recipes if they aren’t family traditions, I find them always on Pinterest. This one I’m about to do is from Pinterest that I found over 4 years ago. Shout out to Barely adapted from Anna Olson food network Canada for sharing it on Pinterest!

So if you’ve ever tried a chocolate chip cookie recipe and your cookies came out looking like flat pancakes or hard as a rock. Don’t fear I got you! This cookie recipe will not disappoint. You will have Mrs. Fields looking cookies in less than 30 minutes.

Ingredients:

3/4 c. unsalted butter softened

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. granulated sugar

1 Egg

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 c. all purpose flour

2 tsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. chocolate chips ( your preference milk, dark or even peanut butter)

Directions:

  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer or regular bowl with electric mixer, Cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add Egg and vanilla and blend.
  3. Mix in flour, cornstarch,baking soda and salt. blend and mix in chocolate chips.
  4. If you have a cookie scoop or tablespoon drop dough onto baking sheet. Remember to always use baking spray or what I like to use is parchment paper, way easier and less mess.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown on edges. Note the tops will not brown and no longer than 10 minutes.
