Your New England Patriots are back in the big game! (I feel like I’m not allowed to say the S* B* words for some weird reason. Like the copyright police will come take away my computer). I have to admit that while I am a fan, I’m generally equally excited about the food as I am about the game. Here’s a round up of gluten free goodies I’ll be serving at my Super party.

My precious baby boy turned 7 this week. That’s insane. I have a 9 year old and a 7 year old! My son is obsessed with Minecraft and I wanted to do something Minecraft inspired for his cake. There is a bad guy in Minecraft called a Creeper. He looks like this:
One thing I love about Minecraft is that everything is made out of squares, so the images are pretty easy to replicate. My first idea was to make some green frosting and some black frosting and then frost the cake in the image of the Creeper. See how abstract that sounds? It’s because I couldn’t figure out A) How to make black frosting and B) how to frost those shapes. I had actually almost given up and bought a boring store bought cake when my eyes fell upon the Hershey’s kisses my kids got for Easter. Hershey’s Kisses are dark brown, almost black. All I had to do was line em up in the shape of the Creeper face on top of the green frosted cake. So not difficult! Here’s how it came out:
Pretty, cool, right? My son loved it and asked for it for his “friends” party next week, too. Plus, it’s a box of Betty Crocker, a tub of frosting, green food coloring and Hershey’s Kisses. Somewhere south of $10, I would guess. A cheap store bought cake is north of $20 and if you want a fancy pants cake from a bakery, that’s like $40 plus. I love the money savings, but I really love the feeling of having created something special for my son.
But, wait! That’s not all. I also made this:
This Mexican Casserole from Allrecipes.com was delicious. Perhaps a little too delicious as I ate three pieces at 10:00PM on Saturday night. Oops. If you like Mexican and you need a quick and easy recipe, give this a try!
I like quiet faves like last week. It let’s me concentrate on The Challenge.
Have a Happy Weekend!!
I was a little all over the place this week. So, not really any rhyme or reason to any of these. They only all fit into the “I love you enough to pin you” category. So here you have it:
I’m making MILLIONS of these and stashing them all over the yard. Best thing ever, yet.
I’ve been meaning to try this and I happen to have some bulbs that I saved from some rogue wild turkeys.
This bracelet is no longer available :-(. But here are some really pretty Kate Spade Bangles. (These are affiliate links. If you click one and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission at no cost to you!).
Nothing really needs to be said about that. Just look at it and sigh.
I love these colors together. So springy.
This is a wreath I can get on board with. I already know how to make those flowers. Consider it done. Maybe.
I love this room, but especially the rug.
I need a new spring jacket. This is on the top of the list.
I have a mirror somewhere in the depths of the basement of the garage and this is happening to it. You can run, but you can’t hide mirror.
This is a pouf I can get on board with.
Rug love. I find so many that I love, but I never buy any. Why? Why? Just do it already!
This is either the most fun ever, or a death trap. Thoughts?
These look so Easter-y to me. Yum.
And the fun stuff:
