March 20, 2015: Mixed Bag Ashley Reviews: In the Mix® Spring Baking Kits + Giveaway!

I am back with some cute kits from In The Mix – focusing on some of their Spring themed kits! When I received that package of these, I knew immediately I’d love doing the Spring Chicks Kit.
Maybe I have said many times before, but I love these kits because each kit comes with everything you need (minus obvious ingredients like butter, milk, etc) – and that’s what makes things in the kitchen easier with these! You don’t have to go shopping all around looking for candy melts or a tube of orange frosting.

September 21, 2014: Mixed Bag Ashley Reviews: Halloween Baking Kits + Giveaway!

Seriously, if Halloween was a year long celebration, I’d be 100% okay with that. I love everything about Halloween – the candy, the dressing up, the Halloween specials (I grew up on the Roseanne specials!) and the awesome baking that comes with Halloween themed treats. I have seen some AMAZING creations out there. Sometimes though you may not have the time to make something completely from scratch and so having an awesome, unique baking kit on hand is the way to go this Halloween.

As a lover of the color pink and the self-proclaimed “Box Cake Queen”, I’m super excited to have partnered with Brand Castle to share with you guys how to make pink waffles. I love pancakes (and waffles) , mostly because I absolutely love pancake syrup. I put it on pretty much every breakfast food known to man. You want to know something really sad, though?  Chile, I can’t make a pancake to save my life! I tried to make pancakes and they were so thin…

February 17, 2014: Rockin’ Mama Reviews: Mickey Mouse Chocolate Heart Sandwich Cookies

One of the best things about Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday is the fact that we had an entire weekend filled with love-inspired activities.  We spent the week baking and preparing cards for our kids’ school friends, then celebrated aboard The Queen Mary with our children, which tends to be our new norm. Since Valentine’s Day seemed to sneak up on me this year, we continued baking through the weekend. I’m a bake-from-scratch type of gal and you’ll rarely see me use boxed, canned, or otherwise prepared foods.
