Orange Pushup Smoothie

So I'm crusin around in blog world, not doing anything productive, and I find this blog MOMS CRAZY COOKING. I found there was a linky party so I signed up! The 7th of every month is a new cooking challenge. This month is Smoothie month. I found this recipe at Averie Cooks, made it and now I'm going to share it.

                                                       Orange Push-up Smoothie                 

1 can of Orange Juice Concentrate, slightly thawed

1 cup of milk (I used half n half, you could use nut milk, cream, soy milk, etc.)

1/2 cup of sugar (I added sugar and ended up putting in a whole cup because it wasn't sweet enough for me)                                                       
3 tablespoons of vanilla (the recipe calls for 1/2 a    teaspoon but I couldn't taste enough vanilla so I      added a lot  haha)                                                  
                                                                                    2 cups of ice or to taste                                         
  1.  Put all the ingredients except the ice into your blender and liquefy.
  2. Add the ice. Blend.

Shes checking out all the people at grandma's house.


attempt #1 of Lucy and me...

Yay! Finally got a decent one... and its pretty darn cute!



Its summer and s'mores are perfect summer food! However not every person has the space or time to build a fire in their backyard to make this amazing treat... I HAVE A SOLUTION! I'm going to tell you how to make s'mores in the oven :) this is the perfect snack after school, right before you throw the kids in the car for ball games, birthday parties, or even just good ole family time.

What you will need:
Hershy's chocolate bars
Graham Crackers
and marshmallows

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.


2. Prepare your cookie sheet. Place parchment paper onto your cookie sheet so you won't  have to clean up as much of a mess later.

3. Break the crackers in half so they are squares. Place them onto the pan like so:

4. Put a marshmallow onto each square facing up like so:

5. Place pan in oven for 5 minutes.
6. When they come out of the oven the marshmallows should be puffy. Using a butter knife push the marshmallow down. Put 3chocolate squares on each marshmallow.

7. Place the top cracker onto each s'more. Place back in oven with the oven door slightly opened. Be sure to watch your s'mores. This is just to melt the chocolate. 
Take the pan out and you can eat your s'mores! Enjoy!
