HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!

Well it’s officially Halloween, one of my favorite holidays! I have been busy baking this whole entire month!  Mostly cookies and cupcakes that is. 😉

Told ya! 😉 

So, along with my baking comes costumes and halloween parties. My boyfriends aunt and uncle invited us to an 80’s Halloween dance last weekend.  And boy did we have a blast! I of course was “Hello Kitty” and my boyfriend was a big yellow banana. I also made CandyCorn Cupcakes that I brought with us. Unfortunatly I didn’t get a good photo of them since a certain someone tipped over my cupcakes in the container. You can find the tutorial here for the cupcakes though. They sure were yummy!  

Here are some pics from the event!

My boyfriend and I.

Now here’s a cute couple. 😉

I found Waldo!

We found another banna wanna be. 

An old friend and I.

Aunt Dawn and uncle Jason. Aren’t they so cute?!

Uncle Jason and I. Toga-Man is right behind us.

There’s the “Little Red Ridding Hood” and “Wolf” in the far right corner…

There are ALOT more photos, but ALOT of them are also kinda inappropriate. So, I think it’s a good idea to leave them out. hehe. 😉

Halloween was so much fun this year. But then again everything is when you’re with good friends! 🙂

Super Easy Pulled Pork!

This is just a simple recipie for an amazing pulled pork dish! While it does take about 6 to 7 hours to cook, it only requires 3 ingrediants. 

All you need is a can of rootbeer, a pound of a pork butt, and your favorite bottle of BBQ sauce.  This does require a slow cooker. Turn your crockpot/slow cooker on low and throw in the pork and rootbeer. Close it and let it cook overnight or for about 6 or 7 hours. Once its done and the meat just easily falls off the bone it should be ready. Drain the left over rootbeer and fat then shred your meat and remove the bone. Pour your favorite BBQ sauce on it and throw it back in for another half hour.

The meat is so tender and juicy it just melts in your mouth! I got this recipie from AllRecipies.

Chicken Noodle Soup

I have been pretty sick for the past couple weeks, and I swear this is the only thing that helps me! This soup is MAGIC! Well, maybe it’s because it is filled with good veggies and lots of vitamins. 😉 Either way it’s the most delicious chicken noodle soup ever. The recipie is acctually my own.

Doesn’t it look so yummy?!

Ingrediants you need:

3 cups of egg noodles

3 stalks of celery (chopped)

3 medium carrots (chopped)

1 large onion (copped)

12 cups of chicken broth

1 rottesirie chicken (shredded)

Dill (to taste)

2 tbps lemon juice

Onion Poweder

Garlic Powder

Black Pepper

Salt

First thing you do is bring your broth to a boil. Add your celery, carrots and onions and let it boil for about 20mins. When your veggies are nice and tender, add your egg noodles. Let them cook for about 5 mins before adding the chicken and your seasonings. All the seasonings I do by taste, so add as much or as little as you like. Let everything cook until the egg noodles are done. Add your chopped up dill and lemon juice and mix everything together.

Pour yourself a bowl and enjoy!

Not only is it healthy, but its the perfect cure to any cold!

Frozen Ghost Banana Treats.

After a looong week I am back! Had to wait for my laptop charger to come in the mail, which seemed like it took forever! Now I am back to my old routines. 😉

Anyways, here is a little easy Halloween treat!

These little frozen bananas are so cute! Perfect for a little snack or an after dinner treat.

Things you need:

Bananas.(cut in half)

White chocolate.

Chocolate chips.

Popsicle sticks.

Cut your bananas in half and put the popsicle stick in the cut off end. Place the bananas on wax paper in a cookie sheet.

Stick them in the freezer for about an hour or two. Once frozen, melt your white chocolate in the microwave. I used Hershey’s white chocolate chips. Dip, or pour your melted chocolate onto your bananas. Since the bananas are frozen the chocolate gets hard very quickly, so you have to move fast. When the whole banana is covered in your white chocolate place your chocolate chips on it for eyes and a mouth. Pop them back in the freezer for another hour or two. Pretty much until your little ghosts are frozen completely.

Go ahead and eat these cuties up!

Owl Cupcakes.

Posted on

How can you resist these cute little owls?!

Things you need:

-Any cake mix

-Oreos

-M&Ms or Reese Pieces

-Frosting

Mix your cake mix according to package. I used German Chocolate cake. Pour your mixture into your cupcake pan and bake it until fully done. Let your cupcakes cool for about an hour. Frost them with your frosting. I used Milk Chocolate for mine.

Divide your Oreos and place them on both sides. Those are going to be your eyes. Take your M&Ms and dip a little bit of frosting on the “M” side and place them on top of the Oreos. Then take your orange M&M and place it in the middle of the Oreos for your nose. There ya go! Cute little owl cupcakes! Simple and delicious!!

Product of the month: OCTOBER!

Posted on

Happy October everyone!!!

I have been thinking about doing a “product of the month” for a while now. You know, since I do hair and all. It might end up being “product of the week” instead though, who knows!

So, one of my FAVORITE products I use daily is the BIGSEXYHAIR hairspray. This has to be one of my favorite hairsprays EVER. It doesn’t weight your hair down, gives you the right amount of volume AND gives you a strong hold through out the day! I absolutely LOVE it!

Another reason I chose this product in particular is that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Sexy Hair donates a portion from the sale of each can to “Look Good Feel Good”. It’s a non-profit organization that helps women cope with the appearance related side effects of cancer treatments.

This has to be the perfect product to purchase this month. Not only will you love how it works on your hair, but the proceeds go to an amazing cause! I am sure ever women can relate to this post in some way or other. Just go to your local salon for the BIGSEXYHAIR products, sometimes the salons themselves also donate a percentage of the proceeds towards the cause. Give this little hairspray a try! You wont be disappointed. (Most salons carry a 7 day guarantee, if you’re not satisfied you can exchange the product or get your money back!)

There’s no better feeling then helping out a great cause. Enjoy your October everyone!
