Fruity Pebbles on What?

img_6315

You might be thinking…what is this? I would be…if I wasn’t the one writing this post. Just a little bit of honesty….BUT…if you thought what on earth are those Fruity Pebbles covering…then you might be a little shocked if I were to tell you it’s chicken…yeah that’s right…chicken.

Who Knew!

Last weekend I invited my cousin Jess over for dinner; along with her oldest son Parker and hew newest addition Jace for some… (hold the phone)…Fruity Pebble Chicken. I thought this would be a fun dinner for the kiddos…colorful…and chicken fingers…need I say more.

So last night we adventured into the world of Fruity Pebbles Chicken Fingers.

Initially, I was very skeptical..the thought of Fruity Pebbles on chicken just honestly did not sound very appealing by any means. Just yuck..right? So, to keep it from being a completely disappointing meal if that was going to be the case…I also made just plain old regular Chicken Fingers. You know just in case…

But

I. Was. Surprised.

Shocked. Even.

Because.

They Were Delicious.

They were like eating a a very mild Honey Chicken, a slight sweetness…but not gross…

Just Perfect.

So if you are looking for something fun to feed the kids or want to try something out of the ordinary…Fruity Pebbles Chicken Fingers.

Food for Thought..I want to meet the person that thought “put Fruity Pebbles on chicken.”

Sophia’s First Homemade Pie

SAMSUNG CSC

Sophia is my little helper in the kitchen. No matter what I am doing she always ends up helping me out, and I LOVE it. It only seems to be natural that she enjoys being in the kitchen as much as I do, she comes from a family of cooks and bakers on both sides. It’s in her blood. I hope she continues to enjoy it as she gets older.

She always drags a chair over to the counter (like a foot away from where I am standing). Not matter what, as soon as I stand in front of the counter within seconds I have my Sous Chef!

Sophia climbs up and says “help..help..mama…peas,” with her big green eyes. It melts my heart every time…I mean..whose wouldn’t?

Hocus Pocus Inspired S’mores Pops!

It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus!

“BOOOOOOOOOOOOK!” That is what was going through my mind as I was making these late last night.

If you have ever seen the movie Hocus Pocus with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy then you will certainly recognize Bette Midler’s “one-eyed spell book.”

This recipe originated from a website called Delish. Since I am a huge Hocus Pocus fan I knew I had to make them.

How to Make Confetti Balloons!

SAMSUNG CSC

Sophia’s birthday was Confetti theme this year, so I knew that I wanted to have Confetti Balloons all over the place. To be honest I was not quite sure how to go about making them. So, after doing a good amount of research I found it was going to be easier and much more cost efficient if I did them myself, rather than ordering them. Or have someone do them for me.

For the confetti I cut up old tissue paper that I received from prior birthdays, baby showers, holidays..etc. Many party stores that I contacted that have done Confetti Balloons for customers in the past do not recommend using the glitter confetti. Due to the balloons popping once helium is injected into the balloon.

Confetti Party

Sophia is officially TWO! This past weekend was her Confetti Birthday Party! I had a ball planning this party. A few months back I wasn’t not sure if I was going to have a theme except “Birthday Party.” Thrilling I know.

Until one very late night on Pinterest I came across a cake that I loved and became my inspiration. I made the cake above, this cake was my inspiration that I found on Pinterest.

Banana Yogurt Bites

SAMSUNG CSC

Today I am sharing with you another healthy recipe that I enjoy myself, especially when I am on the go! I wish I would have known about this recipe when I was in school, it definitely would have made eating breakfast a lot easier. Since I am not typically a breakfast eater this would be perfect to have on hand.

Yes, we are using more Greek Yogurt!!

What You Need:

Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt (or any flavor or brand)

1 Banana (or two..or three..depends on how many you want to make)

Blueberry Crumble Granola with Flaxseed (any kind of granola you want)

Wax Paper

Container to put the Yogurt Banana Bites in to freeze

What To Do:

  1. Peel your banana, cut it up in nice thick slices. Put your yogurt & granola in a separate bowl.
  2. Cover the bottom of your container with the wax paper.
  3. Take one slice of your banana and cover it with the yogurt. (not to heavy).
  4. Then roll it is the granola. If there is to much yogurt on the banana, then granola will roll off.
  5. Set it on the wax paper in your container, continue to do the same for the rest.
  6. Once you have coated all your bananas, put then in the freezer for about 6 hours or overnight.
  7. And Enjoy!

**Please note: if your granola is to chunky, put it in plastic bag, hit it a few times with a rolling pin…don’t make dust!**

The Blueberry Crumble is my favorite, if you can find it at your local grocery store..try it out! What did I do with the left over yogurt and granola? Around 11pm when I was working I mixed everything up and ate it…it was heavenly!

All ready to go in the freezer! I let mine sit overnight.

The next day! Be careful, they are frozen and really cold!

These would be great to give your kids as they are running out the door to catch their bus or even an after school snack.

If you make these..show me I would love to see how yours turned out! My snapchat, instagram and twitter is Sarah_BellaLife.

Have a fantastic day!
