Sweet Creations Candy Mold and Spatula from Good Cook!

Spring is here spring is here its the best time of the year..........first thing you think of when you mention spring is cleaning, flowers and Easter! Easter is just around the corner and for many of us moms we have to decorate and make a feast. I personal am not a baked good's person, I love candy! and what better candy then chocolate!



I have here (see pic : )  a Sweet Creations Mold from Good Cook along with adorable Spatula Good Cook which says Hop into Spring! So what to do with my Sweet Creations mold, and adorable spatula????

I have decided to take the things I like best and mix them up to make my own fun treats for Easter.

What you need:

2 bags of butterscotch chips
1/2 a bag of coconut
1 bag of pecans
1 bag of marshmallows
1/3 a bag of vanilla wafers
butter (use what you need I personally used a bar and half)


So I started by melting my butterscotch chips both bags in a pot, which place some butter in pot to help melt chips and keep them from sticking to pot.



Next I poured my sticky melted butterscotch into my Sweet Creations Mold from Good Cook and let it cool while I placed my marshmallows into same pot I poured the butterscotch from and started letting them melt once almost melted I added half a bag of coconut, and 1 full bag of chopped pecans into the marshmallows, after all is mixed take it and pour it onto your butterscotch that's  in the mold already. Spread it out with your  adorable Good Cook spatula. As it is cooling smash up some vanilla wafers in a ziplock baggie. Spread the wafers over the marshmallow mixture, I used my hands and gentle pressed the wafers down. Put the whole creation into the fridge let sit for about a hour. After a hour check to see its stiff and if so pop out and enjoy.

Here is my final product:




Another I thought of and did:

2 bags of chocolate, (whatever kind you like)
2 bags of marshmallows (again any will do)
1 bag of pecans (any will do)
1 bag of caramels or caramals : )

Take the chocolates melt one bag pour into mold, let cool.
Melt the marshmallows, and caramels mix in nuts, pour on chocolate, let cool
Finally take the last bag of chocolates melt them pour onto mold let cool
Pop out finished product, cut or break however you wanna get your pieces apart and enjoy!

The whole point of the Sweet Creations Mold from Good Cook is to have fun and enjoy what your doing, fact is most anything sweet mixed with sweet is gonna taste great, also I learned that all ingredients can be changed example: if something calls for a cup of water you can use milk, applesauce or so on, remember replace liquid with liquid and solid for solid and in the end it should all turn out great.

The Sparkle Egg 

 Easter is coming, and Sam loves Easter! But this year, he is upset about a lie he told his parents. Even though he apologized and they forgave him, Sam can't shake the feeling that he is a bad kid for what he did. Meanwhile, his parents help him make a special Easter craft called a Sparkle Egg. His mom tells him to write anything he feels sorry about or ashamed of on a piece of paper and put it inside his Sparkle Egg. On Easter morning, when he opens his Sparkle Egg expecting a surprise, Sam finds that it is empty! His parents explain that because Jesus died and rose again, we are forgiven. Like the tomb that first Easter Day, Sam’s egg is empty—and Sam’s wrongdoing is completely forgiven. Once he accepts this forgiveness fully, Sam realizes a truth: we can sparkle and shine with God’s light when we let God’s gift of grace into our hearts. This touching story will strike a deep chord with readers of all ages, and the Sparkle Egg tradition will help readers and their families grasp the totality of God’s perfect grace.

Rilakkuma Bear and Book!




Japanese Rilakkuma is becoming a hit with the youth of America.


I got this adorable plush Rilakkuma Bear with a hidden storage in its back, my daughters like to sneak in candies, coins and other things when we leave to go to the store. The Rilakkuma is a well known brand in Japan and is making its way into the homes of american children.



Check out this board book from Rilakkuma, your child can learn to write and read Japanese! The words in the book are printing in both English and Japanese the book is very well illustrated kids will enjoy reading.

My daughters like to hold the bear while my older sons read the books to them its something they look forward to every night. Rilakkuma is a great brand and product. Check out all the great gear by clicking here.


Some interesting info on Rilakkuma.

Rilakkuma (リラックマ Rirakkuma?, a combination of the Japanese pronunciation of relax and the Japanese word for bear) is a Japanesecharacter designed by Aki Kondo, produced by San-X in 2003.
Rilakkuma and Tarepanda, another San-X character, have been described as "huge hits in Japan" by The New York Times. As of May 2010, Rilakkuma ranked as the fifth most popular character in Japan in a survey of the Character Databank.[1]

The San-X company puts staff members under obligation to create one cute character per month. Aki Kondo (also the creator of Okutan to Dannachan) saw a TV show about dogs. She wished to own a pet because at that time she was very busy working and hoped for a more relaxing life. 

Rilakkuma is an embodiment of her wish.[2]

I have had many Airhead moments one I remember was when I was in high school and I road the bus, it was always dark out so one day I had fallen asleep around like 4pm woke up at about 6:30pm in a pure panic because I was running late for the bus I got dress proceeded to head out when my mom caught me and told me it was 6:30pm not am. That was a fun Airhead moment : ) Now that I am adult I still have my own share of moments my kids get out of school at 2:45, and I get a call from the school at 3pm saying they are still here I was like okay not knowing it was Wednesday and they got out at 1:45pm whoo another Airhead moment. The list continues as I am sure others out there have their own stories to tell, so sit back grab yourself a Airhead from the local store and tell us your story.

Each box of General Mills is back in its old school package with a twist of new in the back the Honey Nut Cheerios shows how over time Buzz became a  3D character.


Cheerios a well known family brand I don't know if I know anyone who has never tried. Cheerios is the King of toddler food, almost all moms feed their kids cheerios. Cheerios has been around for 1945 wow that's some time for it to be a well known name. Cheerios continues to grow strong with new flavors yearly it seems.



Lucky Charms now this cereal I have many memories most of them trying to sneak out the marshmallows and hide the cereal, my dad catching me and making me eat more of the cereal, while he had my marshmallows.  I still like to purchase Lucky Charms and eat just the marshmallows, I pawn the cereal to my kids. : ) My guilty pleasure lol. Lucky Charms has been around since 1964.


I wasn't even thought of yet when this cereal came out : ) but it became our house hold favorite. Honey Nut Cheerios has been around since 1979 still as sweet as ever. I treat my kids to Honey Nut Cheerios often its still the great taste of Cheerios but sweet which what kid doesn't love sweet.


Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which in my time had a baker on it cheerful guy but now its those "crazy squares" which are cute commercials with them eating each other cause they are so good. I love every bit of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, dry or with milk. I love at the end of the bowl you have a sweet milk left to drink, yum. Cinnamon Toast Crunch has been around since 1984. I was only a year old guess my mom must had feed me it often because this is one of my favorite cereals.


Finally  1994 Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs was introduced, I remember this real well, I was 11 and it was one of the first cereals we bought when we moved into our new home, it was my treat basically for moving without to much complaint. The commercials where parents and kids saying REESE'S?!?!! FOR BREAKFAST???!?!? like wow candy for breakfast..but general mills gave it a great taste and still made it beneficial to eat in the morning.  Reese's Puffs still is great and makes a great snack for kids at school or when on the go.  Some fun facts about Reese's Puffs click here.

All these cereals you can find at your local Target, along with many other retail stores. Look for the new "old" Retro boxes of these and more of your favorite throw back cereals from General Mills.

Mimi's Cafe now offers All You Can Eat Free Kids Pancake Dinner!




No skateboarding in the house. No jumping on the bed. No sugar before bedtime. Sometimes being a kid just isn’t easy. And in a world of constant “no’s,” hearing “yes” can make all of the difference. Which is why Mimi’s Cafe is rewarding children right now as a part of their new “Come Back to Mimi’s” promotions.

The next time your child visits Mimi’s Cafe, he or she will get a special invitation back for all the free pancakes they can eat on their next visit.*


As of this week, kids who are dining with their parents (or any other adults) will get a flyer at the end of their meal, inviting them back for an All You Can Eat Free Kids Pancake Dinner, available to children under the age of 12 with an adult purchase of an entrée of $10** or more.  Which means that on their next visit, while the adults are enjoying Mimi’s classic comfort dishes such as Mimi’s slow-roasted pot roast, crispy Fish & Chips, and creamy Artichoke Chicken Penne, kids will get to indulge in their favorite breakfast-for-dinner treat! (For children who don’t love pancakes for dinner, Mimi’s will treat them to another delicious kid meals, such as chicken fingers or mini corn dogs).

  

But Mimi’s likes adults, too, so they’re being invited back, too -- with a special $5 off their next visit, which will be found at the bottom of their guest check.

So, whether you are young or old, the next time you visit Mimi’s, be prepared to get your very own special invitation back.  Because Mimi’s can’t wait to see you again!
