Savory & Sweet Popcorn Cones – A fun snack for families!

My kids are always on the hunt for snacks. As you can see on my blog lately, I have a lot of snack ideas for kids. They especially love to have a snack when we are doing family activities, like watching a movie, playing a game or going to the zoo. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and provide the same boring snack, but there are other times that I like to go all out and let them have a fun snack that’s easy to make!

These savory & sweet popcorn cones are one of those times where their snacking is made more fun! A good friend of mine actually gave me this idea– she said her grandmother would give her a popcorn mixes in an edible ice cream cone and she absolutely loved and cherished those times her grandma did that. I thought that was so sweet and such a genius idea, that I had to do it myself. She totally didn’t mind that I duplicated and added my own twist, so thank you for that Jess… you rock! read more

taco salad with a twist #shop #mybrotherssalsaGrowing up, it seemed like every time we had company over, my mom always made a huge bowl of her famous taco salad. It was always a party favorite and was always requested by friends and family for my mom to make, especially around holidays and birthdays. Her taco salad has always been a favorite of my brother’s as well, and even today, she makes it for him every year for his birthday. It’s a light, yet filling meal that’s great for any time of the year.  Now that I have a family of my own to feed and friends to invite over and parties to attend, her taco salad is always my go-to when I want to make something for a lot of people, since it’s so easy to throw together! My husband loves when I make it, but always asks for me to kick it up a notch with the taco flavor,  sooooooo………. challenge accepted! 🙂  When I saw this variety gift pack of My Brother’s Salsa at Sam’s Club, I knew it would be perfect for my husband-taco-salad challenge. Woot! read more
