Cool App, Great Service and Good Food with BJ’s Restaurant Dine in Order Ahead

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and BJ’s Restaurants, but all my opinions are my own. #DineInOrderAhead #pmedia  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Y'all, I am such a nerd. I get so excited over things that make my life easier. Having five kids, my life seldom seems easy lol. If I could just find that clothes folder and the put away machine, I'd be set! :)

Cranberry Cashew Bark

Looking for a super simple snack to throw together? Cranberry Cashew Bark has you covered and it's OH so delicious.

Treat yourself now, or save this recipe for later, because it's never too early to plan Christmas treats. Cranberry Cashew Bark is the perfect sweet to add to your holiday baking and candy making list. Just look at the gorgeous color of those Craisins!

Since I like to try recipes out ahead of time, I mixed up a quick batch of bark to snack on. Let me tell you... it was good. So good in fact, that the next day when I went to grab another piece I made a sad discovery: it was all gone!

We have been super busy planning our backyard renovations for this Summer. Part of our first phase is adding the pool. We've finally broken ground on it (if you follow me on Instagram or other social media, then you have probably seen some pics). My family is making every moment count as we plan and execute these renovations. We have been excited with each new step along the way. I'm sure this will be the start of many great memories in our new backyard.

Taco Rice Recipe

Hi all! Remember me? Emily from Nap-Time Creations?
We love Mexican food!! Living in Hong Kong one of the only things I miss {besides family, of course} is good Mexican food. I try to make Mexican recipes at home, but its just not the same as a really good authentic restaurant... there are a couple of good ones near my parents and I always look forward to visiting them while visiting my parents. Today I'm sharing a Taco Rice Recipe which you probably wouldn't actually find in a Mexican restaurant, but the flavors are really good anyway!
Taco Rice Recipe- sure to be a hit with the whole family. Make each plate to your liking..

Nutella Banana Cinnamon Rolls




 Welcome back to Foodie Friday!  
Where every 2nd Friday of the month I, Sandra from A Dash of Sanity, will be sharing one of my favorite recipes with the friends of Love Bakes Good Cakes.

Are there any other Nutella addicts out there?
Come on, raise your hand, I know you are out there.
I seriously have a Nutella problem, I feel like you can add it to anything and it will taste better! Seriously.
This cinnamon roll recipe was inspired by my son, Aiden, 11 years old, who asked me to make toast with Nutella and bananas, a lethal combination of goodness.
