Finding Nemo Chocolate Orange Yogurt Parfait

Posted in DIY, and Recipes

Today marks the 14th anniversary of Pixar’s Finding Nemo! I realized this at about 9pm last night, just as I was beginning to develop a sweet tooth. The kids were already asleep and I’ve never been much of a late night muncher myself, so while I wanted to satisfy my craving, I also wasn’t prepared to indulge in anything too heavy or sugary. With that (and Nemo) in mind, I began to search my kitchen for the perfect snack…but what I found was that “grocery shopping” has moved its way up to the top of my to-do list. Luckily, I also found plain greek yogurt, a couple oranges, and some leftover chocolate chips… and thus, this grown-up sweet tooth solution (aka the “Lucky Fin” Parfait) was born.

Unicorn Elotes (Mexican Street Corn)

Posted in Recipes

Growing up in Southern California, elotes came around as frequently as the ice cream truck. Usually accompanied by a bell or a bicycle horn, a man (or woman) would come walking down the street with a whole cart full of sweet delicious corn yelling “elotes, elotes” and I’d ask my mom for a dollar and run outside to enjoy a delicious mid-day treat.

Wilderness Explorer Backyard Camp Out

Posted in Parties and Entertaining, and Summer

This post is a throwback to a fun campout we had with the kids last summer! I wasn’t blogging regularly back then, but we had so much fun that I thought it was definitely worth sharing in honor of this week’s Disney Family #DisneyWeekend theme being back yard camp out! We made our campout a Wilderness Explorer theme, because not only do we love the movie Up (and let’s face it, ALL the Pixar movies), but I had the idea of adding a bit of learning to the experience by having the kids participate in different activities to earn Wilderness Explorer “badges” (stickers) just like Russel has in the movie!

Dark Side Cookies and Bantha Milk

Posted in Recipes

We keep hearing all this talk about the dark side having cookies, so Caleb and I decided to don our matching Vader sweaters and switch sides for a day to see what all the fuss is about. And big surprise–no cookies! Lucky for them, I had a feeling this might happen so I came prepared with my own recipe for not only these chocolatey Mustafar-inspired “dark side” cookies, but blue vanilla bantha milk to wash them down! You’re welcome, Anakin.
