Boozy Baja Blast Recipe

If you crave Mountain Dew Baja Blast, but like a little kick to your drink, you’ll love this Boozy Baja Blast Recipe! With only three ingredients, this will be another summer favorite!

Plus, you have to grab a cute cup from DIY With The Wears for all your drinks too.

Lately, all I’ve wanted to drink is Mountain Dew Baja Blast. It’s just so refreshing and tasty. I love to get it during the summer when I go to Taco Bell.

But, I wanted it without going to Taco Bell. I knew I had to find a way to make it at home.

With only two ingredients for the regular DIY Baja Blast, it was super easy. Since I do enjoy a boozy drink or two in the summer, I decided to add a third ingredient too.

Here’s all you’ll need:

  • Mountain Dew
  • Blue Powerade
  • Key Lime Vodka
  • Ice

First, fill your cup up with ice. I swear certain drinks just taste better ice cold.

When mixing the Mountain Dew and Blue Powerade together, try to make it 75% Mountain Dew and 25% Powerade. This is the most perfect mixture and tastes just like Baja Blast.

Then add a shot of your vodka to top it all off.

It’s an easy drink to make and tastes so good. I love that I get one of my favorite drive through drinks at home!

Cran Raspberry Punch

Springtime is heating up and refreshments are needed. This Cran Raspberry Punch is fun twist on a vodka cran, but can be made for littles too!

Mila and I LOVE making punch. I feel like we’re constantly making and drinking it. For all her parties, I throw a themed punch together. Now with holidays and different seasons, I think it’s so fun to make something for them too.

Since spring is here, I wanted a light punch that Mila and I both would love. She is obsessed with cranberry juice; which I’m happy for that. We also both love raspberries so a combination of the two was a must. I always like to be able to make punches or different drinks with the capability to add some type of shot too. This reminded me of vodka cran, just with the extra sweetness of punch.

Here’s what you’ll need for this Cran Raspberry Punch:

  • Raspberry Sorbet
  • Cran Raspberry Juice
  • Raspberry Seltzer Water
  • Shot of Vodka (optional)

To make this drink, you just need to add this in either a cup or a punch bowl. When it’s just Mila and I, we just make them individually.

Personally, I start off with the raspberry sorbet. Then I’ll add the juice and alcohol for the adults. After, I like to finish off with the seltzer water. It just makes it foam up a little better. The seltzer water somehow mixes it all up perfectly too.

You could garnish with fresh raspberries or fun shaped ice. I feel like the cup I used in the picture is a whole garnish. It’s from DIY With the Wears.

Then, enjoy!

Nut Free Bunny Trail Mix

Easter is almost here. Hop on over to check out this Nut Free Bunny Trail Mix for Easter Sunday or a fun after school spring snack.

Mila and I LOVE trail mix. It’s such a yummy and easy snack… but I can’t eat nuts. Instead of missing out, I’ve found a few staples of a mix I love.

Not only are they yummy to snack on, you can easily store snack mixes to enjoy for the entire week. It makes snack time SO easy!

One of the best parts of having a great mix is adding seasonal snacks to enjoy.

Here’s the ingredients of our latest spring mix:

  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Pastel M&M’s
  • Bunny Marshmallows
  • Chex Mix
  • Jelly Beans

Anytime I make nut free mixes, all you have to do is throw it in a big bowl. You can mix them up a little bit and you’ll have an amazing snack.

Sometimes we also like to add sprinkles as well!

One fun way to serve these is to use different shaped plates or big jars. It just adds a little more magic. The Dollar Tree always has fun containers and plates. That’s where I found this bunny!

Hopefully your friends and family will love this Easter snack mix!

Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip

If you want to bring the best dip to holidays and parties, you’re going to want to make this Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip. With only four ingredients, it’s easy to make and so tasty.

The best part about this dip is it can be festive for every holiday and party.

This week is a big one for Mila and me. Not only is Easter on Sunday, Mila turns FOUR on the fourteenth! That means we have a lot of places to be to celebrate. We actually just had her birthday… which I want to write a post about…where this dip was a huge hit. This Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip is definitely worth celebrating!

Here’s the only four ingredients you need:

  • Funfetti Cake Mix
  • 8oz Cool Whip
  • 1 Vanilla Pudding Snack Pack
  • Sprinkles (I use different ones depending on the event)

Another awesome part of this dip… you only need one bowl. Add all of these ingredients in a bowl and then mix them together. Once it gets to a creamy consistency, it’s ready.

I always add extra sprinkles on top. For Easter and Mila’s birthday, I added a spring sprinkle mix. When I made it for Valentine’s Day, we put heart sprinkles in the dip too! Whatever you’re celebrating, you can add so many different sprinkles in and it changed the whole mood of the dip. Plus, who doesn’t love sprinkles?

Then, you can either spoon to your serving bowl or keep it in the mixing one. Just make sure to put it in the refrigerator for about twenty minutes. In that twenty minutes, it will really fluff up and become extra delicious.

While you’re waiting for the Funfetti Dip to cool, get your dipping items ready.

Our favorites for this dip are vanilla wafers, graham crackers, strawberries, grapes, and green apples. Actually, green apples are our number one, but it’s good to mix with the others too. I’m definitely excited to trying more dippers.

If you try this Simple No Bake Funfetti Dip, comment your favorite dipper or what holiday you used made it on. I love this recipe so much and know you all will too!

Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast

If you’re looking for a new breakfast recipe for this Easter, you have to try this Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast. You can easily make it in regular squares or spice it up for Easter morning.

On Easter morning, we have the same routine. Wake up, find our Easter basket and eggs, and then eat a big breakfast before all the festivities of the day! It’s important on holidays to make sure to get food before everyone gets together and plays. That’s why I’m always on the hunt for recipes that Mila will love.

Since I love french toast and Mila’s into strawberries (I mean, me too if you remember last summer), this seemed like a perfect one to try! It combined all of our favorite flavors in one bite! Who wouldn’t love that?

I had most of the ingredients on hand, but if you’re wanting to try this recipe out, here’s what you’ll need:

For this Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast recipe, it’s made similarly to regular french toast… besides the stuffed part!

The strawberry cheesecake stuffing consists of mixing cream cheese, vanilla, a pinch of sugar, and strawberries in a bowl. I mashed the strawberries a little bit to get the flavor consistent throughout the cream cheese. Then spread the mixture on one of the slices of bread. Next, put another piece of bread on top.

If you’re making your french toast with cut outs, this is the time to do it. We used different Easter shapes! No matter if you’re making it fun or traditional, make sure to press the sides down so it doesn’t all escape!

Now it’s time to dip them. Make a mixture consisting of one egg, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of sugar. Dip your bread in the mix. I make sure to add extra cinnamon every time.

After it’s coated, place on a hot pan that’s coated with butter to cook.The Strawberry Cheesecake Stuffed French Toast is done when both sides are brown and toasty.

Once it’s done, I’ll add maple syrup and sprinkles to top it off. Sprinkles make everything better.

Then enjoy!

We loved this tasty breakfast and I can tell we’ll be trying different flavors to stuff our french toast with. I think using the Easter cut outs made it even more fun and festive.

Baked Reuben Sliders Recipe

If you’re looking for something easy and delicious to make for St. Patrick’s Day, you HAVE to try these Baked Reuben Sliders.

The one food I always crave around St. Patrick’s Day are reuben sandwiches. They have so many good flavors and are such a comfort food.

Last year was the first time I’ve made them at home. Usually I’ll order out, but they were easy enough to make. Since we always like to change it up and everyone loved the Chicken Parmesan Sliders Recipe, I knew these classic reuben sandwiches needed a twist.

Let’s just say… it was another instant hit in our house. I think this means we’ll have Baked Reuben Sliders all year long. A total win for me and my cooking time!

I’m sure I’ve convinced you enough to try with just the picture. Here’s what you’ll need to make them for your family:

  • Corned Beef
  • Baby Swiss Cheese
  • Thousand Island Dressing
  • King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls
  • Sauerkraut
  • Butter
  • Italian Seasoning

Before I begin… I did not add the amount I used becuase it will probably be different for your family. For Mila and me, I bought a half pound of corned beef, a pack of baby Swiss cheese, a can of sauerkraut, and one pack of King’s Hawaiian Rolls. We had enough for leftovers, but that’s what worked for us!

First, preheat your oven to 350° F.

While that’s preheating, slice your Hawaiian rolls across the middle leaving a top and a bottom. You won’t want to pull the individual rolls apart. Before putting the rolls on a cooking sheet, coat the bottom of the sheet with melted butter.

Then, put some butter on the bottom rolls. Place the bottoms of the rolls in the oven for around three minutes. This will toast them and not make the bottoms soggy when you’re eating.

After it’s toasted, pull them out and start assembling.

First, put thousand island dressing on the rolls. Then add the corned beef, sauerkraut, and baby Swiss. Before putting on the top part of the buns, I added an extra layer of thousand island dressing.

Next, add the top of the buns. Brush melted butter and Italian seasoning to the top.

Place in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes. You’ll know when they’re done when the buns are golden brown and the cheese is all melted.

Then enjoy all the goodness!

These Baked Reuben Sliders are so good. The sweetness of the King’s Hawaiian Rolls just elevates the taste. Plus, it makes them so much more shareable too.

You can pair these with different sides like French fries or a salad (since we always eat salads here). But make sure to pair with a tasty St. Patrick’s Day treat or drink. I’ve shared a few that you can choose from:

Lucky Charms Dipped Oreos

What’s better than regular gold? Gold you can eat and you’ll love the taste of these Lucky Charms Dipped Oreos.

This simple recipe can easily be done for an after school snack or whenever you have a quick five minutes to make some magic. You can even enjoy it with yummy leprechaun milk, which your kids will love even more.

Mila and I have still not saw the leprechaun playing tricks in our house. Our Pete the Cat book told us the only day you can catch one is on St. Patrick’s Day so we’re getting all our leprechaun bait ready.

We’re working on our leprechaun trap to set out the night before St. Patrick’s Day too! Hopefully that’ll do the trick.

This little recipe here was supposed to be leprechaun bait, but Mila decided it would be better suited for little girls. So, she just ate them instead. I can’t say I blame her!

For another magically delicious treat, you’ll need:

  • Golden Oreos
  • Lucky Charms
  • White Chocolate

The first thing you need to do is melt your white chocolate. I used the microwaveable kind because it’s way easier and quicker for us. Just make sure you microwave in small increments and stir frequently.

After it’s all melted, dip your Golden Oreos in the white chocolate and set them on wax paper.

Before the chocolate is cooled, place Lucky Charms on them. I did it randomly and in between coating the Oreos. The chocolate seemed to cool off pretty quickly!

While you wait, you can make some leprechaun milk to enjoy with your Lucky Charms Dipped Oreos.

All you need to do is add some green food coloring to milk and enjoy!

Mila was very pleased with these and did not seem to want to share with the leprechaun in our house. It was a fun little snack that only took a few minutes to make.

Easy Leprechaun Parfait

If you’re in the midst of leprechaun hunting this year, you might be able to tempt one with this Easy Leprechaun Parfait.

With only a few tasty ingredients, your little ones won’t be able to resist the temptation of trying this magically delicious treat.

Mila is on a full fledge hunt for a leprechaun before St. Patrick’s Day. The one in our house has already turned all our milk green and is hiding things of her’s. We have a few tricks up our sleeve to capture him.

One tasty way we came up with was getting our leprechaun to try a tasty parfait. Of course filled with all a leprechaun’s favorite things…

Here’s what you’ll need to charm a leprechaun with this treat:

  • Lucky Charm Cereal
  • Vanilla Pudding
  • Food Coloring

The first thing for the sweet treat is to have littles separate the Lucky Charm’s cereal and marshmallows. Mila loves doing this and sneaking a few to eat too!

While they’re doing that, put green food coloring in the vanilla pudding. Of course leprechauns LOVE the color green. Mix it up until it’s consistently green. I tried to make it a lighter green, but it all depends on the amount of food coloring you put in.

Once you and your little are done, it’s time to start layering.

Our layering went like this: cereal, pudding, cereal, pudding, marshmallows. Personally, I think it was a pretty good decision.

The best part was, Mila was super excited to try this since it was for the leprechaun. She ate SO much for it, but left a little bit to catch one. They’re small anyways!

We’ll keep you updated on our catching adventure… until then, you have to try this sweet treat.

Easy 3 Ingredient Beignets Recipe

If you’re looking for a fun and tasty was to celebrate Mardi Gras, try this Easy 3 Ingredient Beignets Recipe.

You’ll have the taste of New Orleans in twenty minutes.

We like to celebrate everything in my household. It just makes life a little more fun. In this case, it made it a little more sweet too!

Before I go on, I want to share that I originally saw this recipe on Instagram: @lorafied. It looks like a fun and recipe I knew I needed to try with Mila. I’m so glad I did that I had to share with all of you.

Here’s the three ingredients you’ll need to let the good times roll:

  • 1 can of biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar

First, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 375 F.

While your oven is warming up, get out your canned biscuits. I always love the way it pops and just expands instantly. It brings make so many childhood memories!

Then, cut your biscuits in small pieces. I just did a cross section in mine to make four bites per biscuit.

Next, melt your butter. Put biscuit bites in a bowl and coat them with butter.

After they’re covered, pour the sugar all over them. I took my hands to mix them up and make sure all sides were covered. Move them to a plan after they’re all good.

At this point, I added some colored sugar to make them a little more festive for Mardi Gras.

Place them in your oven for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to flip your little beignets half way through too! You’ll know they’re done when they’re a beautiful, golden brown.

You can either dust with powder sugar or enjoy them as is!

We loved how our sweet treat tasted. Plus, it was such a fun way to talk about Mardi Gras with Mika while she did a mini activity too.

Hopefully you can get to make and enjoy these beignets for Fat Tuesday!


If you’re looking for a fun creative piece for Mardi Gras, take a look at what Mila and I did last year. I guarantee your child will love the art and beignet combo!

Chicken Parmesan Sliders Recipe

One of the biggest sports days of the year is coming up. You’ll have your friends and family cheering for you when you bring these Chicken Parmesan Sliders to your Super Bowl party.

After you have these once, you’ll easily want to keep making them for easy week night dinners too.

My family watches the Super Bowl every year. It’s a tradition that I love, even though I’m in it for the commercials and half time show now. Instead of just buying chips and drinks, I made one of my favorite meals into handheld sandwich.

Before I go into how to make this, I’d highly suggest doubling this recipe.

It goes FAST!

But, you’ll score a touchdown with this meal by getting these ingredients:

  • Chicken Nuggets
  • Hawaiian Rolls
  • Pasta or Pizza Sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese (I used shredded)
  • Parmesan
  • Butter
  • Italian Seasoning

First, cook your chicken nuggets or tenders as directed on their bag or box.

While they are cooking, slice your Hawaiian rolls across the middle leaving a top and a bottom. You won’t want to pull the individual rolls apart.

Before putting the rolls on a cooking sheet, coat the bottom of the sheet with melted butter. After the chicken nuggets are cooked, put your oven to 350.

Place the bottoms of the rolls in the oven for around three minutes. This will toast them and not make the bottoms soggy when you’re eating. Trust me, it’s a much needed step!

When it’s toasted, it’s time to assemble the sliders.

Place a chicken nugget on each roll.

Then, coat them with pizza or pasta sauce. I personally like the taste of pizza sauce better so that’s what I chose to do!

Next, either sprinkle shredded cheese or place mozzarella slices on your sliders. I probably put way too much cheese on mine, but that’s the way I like them! It makes it more satisfying to pull apart after they’re cooked too.

Place the top half of the rolls on top. Add melted butter mixed with Italian seasoning and garlic over the rolls.

Cook in the oven for 18-20 minutes.

Once they’re done, allow them five minutes to cool down before eating.

I love the simplicity and quickness of this recipe. Mila and I both loved it and I know the rest of my family will too.

If you have any left over, they taste great as leftovers!

These Chicken Parmesan Sliders will definitely be in our dinner rotation for a long time. I hope they will be for your family as well
