Mini Mexican Chocolate and Dulce de Leche Cream Pies

Mini-Mexican Chocolate and Dulce de Leche Cream Pies at
Hi guys!  I love me some cream pies.  I blame my mom, really.  She makes the MOST delicious banana cream pie with home-made -- like, actually made from scratch -- vanilla pudding. I drool just thinking about it.  Did y'all even know you could make your own pudding from stuff you probably already have in your kitchen?  And it's really pretty easy, and tastes soooo much better than the instant kind?  I'm tellin' you.  So when I saw the delicious new Coffee-mate Latin flavors -- Mexican Chocolate and Dulce de Leche -- at the store a little while ago my mental wheels started spinning.  Could I actually use Coffee-mate to make cream pies?  The answer is YES!

Etched Feather Drinking Glasses

DIY etched feather drinking glasses at
Hi guys!  I have been super excited about today's project for a while now.  I was given the opportunity to try out the new Dremel Micro 8050 and share my opinion with y'all!  I can't even tell you how long I have wanted to own a Dremel rotary tool.  I look at them every single time we go to the home improvement store, which you might think would be a strong enough hint for my dearly beloved to get me one for Christmas or Mother's Day.  But you'd be wrong.  Good thing I waited!  The Micro 8050 is the most “brilliantly powerful” and precise cordless rotary tool that Dremel has ever produced and is fully compatible with all Dremel rotary tool accessories.  As soon as my new Dremel showed up on my doorstep, I began using it on every different type of surface you can think of.  The Micro 8050 can cut, carve, engrave, sand, grind, sharpen, clean and polish.  Believe me, you will be seeing quite a few Dremel projects on my blog now!  Far and away my favorite thing I made were these Etched Feather Drinking Glasses.

The Swiffer Effect is REAL!

Hi guys!!  Do you love these Swiffer commercials as much as I do?  I'm convinced that Brent and I will be the Kaufmans in 40 years -- him drifting off like Morty as I ramble on about how much I like this or that.  They are really entertaining commercials, which you can't often say.  But I always watch TV commercials with a healthy dose of skepticism, thinking the products can't possibly work as well or look or taste as good in real life.  So I was thrilled -- and very pleasantly surprised -- when I got a couple of those big green boxes on my door step so I could see for myself and share with a friend.

Strawberry Sandwich Cookies

Strawberry Sandwich Cookies at
Hi guys!  I had a free afternoon last weekend, so of course I took the opportunity to bake up some yumminess for my family {while watching a Lifetime movie -- don't judge}.  One of my favorite easy treats to make are cake mix sandwich cookies.  There are a million different flavor combos you can make.  They're like the poke cake of the cookie world!  {Mmmmm . . . poke cake . . . next time. }  I usually resort to the classic Oreo version -- chocolate cookies with vanilla frosting -- but this time I wanted something a little different.  That's how these strawberry sandwich cookies were born.
