The cutest Easter cupcakes! Chocolate cupcakes decorated with chocolate frosting and chocolate sprinkles! With candy eggs in the nest!

Guys.

Easter is next weekend.

NEXT WEEKEND.

Are you ready?

I am SO not and I start panicking and then I remember how last Easter we were living in an Army hotel with all 5 of us plus 2 dogs in one room and that we somehow managed to still pull of an awesome Easter. And I feel a little better about being totally not prepared.

One thing, though, that you can always count on me for is desserts. I am fully prepared to make ALL THE EASTER DESSERTS.

Especially because my pantry is always stocked with Pillsbury baking mixes and frosting. Every time I’m in Walmart, I wander down the baking aisle to see what’s new and while I’m there, I grab a few more boxes of my fave Pillsbury mixes and a few cans of frosting. It’s so nice to have them in the pantry for last minute get togethers or just an afternoon treat.

I think instead of dyeing Easter eggs this year, I may make a ton of cupcakes and decorate those instead! Just as much fun and so much tastier!

And can we talk about how cute these Easter Nest Cupcakes are?! They are so easy – I used my favorite Pillsbury Moist Supreme Cake Mix in chocolate and the Pillsbury Creamy Supreme frosting. And then to decorate, I just place some chocolate sprinkles down in a circle shape to look like a nest and then placed some candy eggs in the center.

So cute. My kids loved this idea and were thrilled to help out with them!

Before you head to Walmart for your Pillsbury mixes and frosting, make sure you download the Ibotta app so you can save $.75 on 3 Pillsbury products! And if you need some Easter baking inspiration, check out more ways to #MixUpAMoment on the Pillsbury Pinterest board.

Happy Monday!

How’s the time change treating you?

Won’t lie, I slept until 9:42 yesterday morning.

Can we talk about how awesome it is to have kids that can pour their own cereal and entertain themselves for a little while? I feel for all of you with tiny ones.

It was also really nice to have daylight for so long! It was almost 8 by the time the sun finally faded. You know what that means?

Food bloggers are no longer cooking dinner at 2 pm! Yay sunlight!

Happy Saturday, y’all!

 

It is officially Spring Break here and we have SO MUCH going on.

Just kidding.

I’m not leaving my house again until the kids go back to school.

(Except for dog walks and coffee runs. You know, the important stuff.)

I bought so much yesterday at the grocery store just so I don’t have to go again for 10 days. The goal is to spring clean the house, take lots of naps, and watch all 57 seasons of House of Cards.

I’ve watched the first episode of that show 3 times now and I still go, “Huh?” at the end of it each time. So I’m gonna sit down and watch it without distractions and I’m gonna like it.

This week’s menu plan is going to make staying home really easy. Lots of easy meals plus a couple desserts and a delicious breakfast!

Dan Dan Zucchini Noodles – a healthy twist on the classic! Zucchini noodles, pork, and a delicious spicy sauce! 

Dan Dan Zucchini Noodles - a healthy twist on the classic! Zucchini noodles, pork, and a delicious spicy sauce!

Okay guys, I’m on a diet.

Just kidding. ha! We all know that never works out well.

But I am trying to make healthier choices these days. Because, bikini season.

Although I had a Big Mac on Sunday so…

Anyway.

I’m back to my breakfast salads and sweet potato noodles and lots and lots of turkey bacon. And I’m even giving zucchini noodles another try.

I have never liked them (I don’t really love zucchini to begin with) but I’ve found that if I put a spicy sauce on them, I love them. And they have basically no calories so, I’ll definitely take that.
