Easy Walking Tacos {Tailgate Food}

Easy Walking Tacos from The Cards We Drew

We had a tailgate this weekend, so of course I was trying to think of yummy and easy tailgate food ideas to serve to our friends. My family LOVES Mexican, but I couldn't think of an easy way to make them finger foods for our guests! Then I remember the idea of the Walking Taco that we got at a local amusement park, Cedar Point. So I ran out and picked up all the fixins' needed for easy walking tacos!! Here's the easy steps: Basically you take a small individual bag of Doritos, crush it up, and open it. In the bag of Doritos you layer lettuce, cheese, sour cream, taco meat, hot sauce, and any other taco toppings (like jalapenos or black … [Read more...]

Evenflo Symphony™ LX Carseat Review

Evenflo Symphony Car Seat

I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own. Having had my second child now, I feel like there are a lot of things I've done differently this time around than things I worried about with our first. For example, I realized that you don't necessarily need every baby item out there to effectively parent a child. As a new parent it's easy to become overwhelmed and think you need that exer-saucer and this bouncy seat...that bottle washer and dryer...this wipe warmer. We had it all when we had our son and quickly realized that as long as we had diapers, wipes, blankets, bottles, and the … [Read more...]

Superhero M&M’s Muddy Buddies

Red White and Blue Muddy Buddies

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #HeroesEatMMs #CollectiveBias My son is a HUGE superhero fan...it's something he's never really outgrown and he still loves all the Marvel heroes especially Captain America, Iron Man, and Spiderman. So when the new Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier DVD was released last week, we rented it Friday night, settled in and enjoyed a little family movie night. With family movie nights, we usually do something simple like pizza and then a treat after...so I made these yummy Superhero M&M's Muddy Buddies to celebrate Captain America's … [Read more...]
