July 10, 2012 TV Segment – Popsicle and Flip Flop Cupcakes

My daughter made her TV debut this morning with me on News Channel 8 This Morning Show with Jennifer and Bill.  They made her feel right at home.  Check out what we made.  A few ideas were found at Party Pinching.


Popsicle and Flip Flop Cupcakes to Make With Your Kids

Today is about cute cupcake ideas that I found over at Party Pinching.  When I saw these I knew I was going to make them.  They are super easy and your kids (probably 5 and up but you be the judge) can make them with you.

We’ll start with the popsicles.  How cute are these?  Do you remember the popsicles that come two to a bag and they were connected and you had to share with your sister? 


Simply made with Mike and Ikes Candy.  Or should I say just Mike’s or just Ike’s?  Did you know they split up?  Love how on this box Mike has Ike’s name crossed off.  I’ve seen them advertised on TV with Mike crossed off and Ike’s name all kept together. 

Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Muffins

Wipe that drool off your face.  I know these look good – that’s what I’m here to tell you.

That and I’m going to boss you around a bit. 

Trust me.  My younger sisters know what this is like and I haven’t bossed them around in awhile so you will just have to bear with me on this.  I’m going through bossing withdrawal.

Quick Summer Meals Contest – Crock Pot Country Pork Ribs


Here it is.  Week 4 of the Quick Summer Meals Contest and you will not be disappointed with this winner – I promise. 

Unless you don’t like ribs.  Then too bad for you and more for me!

My family was a bit skeptical of the sauce on these ribs.   We like ketchup but in smaller quantities and this sauce has a lot of ketchup.  But to OUR surprise, it didn’t taste ketchupie at all.  And the best part – I was able to put the sauce together in less than 10 minutes and that includes getting everything out AND putting it away again.  So this recipe was in the crock pot in less than 15 minutes and on its way to becoming dinner for the night.
