I love Mother’s Day! This will be my second year to celebrate as a mom and I have to say it’s one of my favorite holidays. Not matter what your Mother’s Day traditions are, whether you are a mom or you have a mom, I’d like to offer up this recipe for Crock Pot French Toast that you let cook overnight and then, presto! You wake up in the morning and the slow cooker has done all the work!
This time of year is the perfect time to be outside. We are right in that sweet spot where it’s not too hot and it’s not too cold. It’s not quite time to come to terms with having to don a swimsuit but just the right time to join your friends at a local festival. With being in the thick of March Madness this time of year also means gatherings around the grill. Here’s what happened when this girl met the grill.
Now that we know the two teams competing for the whole enchilada I feel like I can really get into the spirit of the Big Game. Many of you know that I have been preparing for this game by offering up some fantastic recipes and cocktails to serve at your watch party. While some of these recipes are delicious, ooey gooey, and down right cute, they may leave out some of your more health conscience guest who my be holding tight to their New Year’s resolution diets! With today’s recipe I decided to switch to something a bit lighter without sacrificing flavor and sticking to the Big Game theme.
We Houstonians couldn’t be prouder that the Big Game is in our fair city and what better theme than giving your guests a little Houston, Texas flavor on game day. With the help of H-E-B you can Houston Tex-ify your watch party with their distinctive Primo Pick items, a lot of which are born and raised deep in the heart of Texas! Free printables to make your Houston themed Big Game Party, the biggest thing around are included in today’s post.
Maybe I was a little inspired after my recent trip to Israel. Everywhere you go there are olives. We went by numerous olive presses, olives were a part of every meal, we literally visited a place called the “Mount of Olives”. So I think it’s high time that I incorporated them into the perfect bite-sized game day appetizers to serve during the big game.
