It’s all about Buttercream today folks!
It is one of my favorite things to make, and it is not as hard as you may think. All it takes is a little patience. One of my favorite buttercream’s to make is Italian Buttercream, you can’t go wrong with it. It’s definitely my go to buttercream when I am decorating or frosting a cake.
It is not greasy, heavy or overly sweet. It’s perfect.
Let’s get started….

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.

I am a total avid youtube watcher, it’s a serious addiction. I have been following a few channels for quite sometime now, but one of my favorite channels is called HeyKayli. I just love her, she is so crafty and down -to -earth. If I was a ‘youtuber,’ I would want a channel like hers.
The other day I saw she made some non-alcoholic tropical drinks with her two kids. And I thought “I have to make those for Sophia.” Considering we only have about a month left of summer these drinks are perfect way to celebrate the season a little bit longer.

We are talking about Steak Kabobs! They are super super easy to make and really good! My mom gave me this recipe to try out the other night for dinner. And I loved them!

I was at the store the other day picking up some odds and ends, when I came across popsicle molds. So, I thought it would be a perfect week to share my Greek Yogurt Fruit Bars. This is also a much healthier version of “ice cream,” that you could even give to the kiddos for breakfast or it would make a perfect late night snack.

Do you want another excuse to fire up the grill this week? Look no further! Yesterday, for dinner my mom and I made Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs. They were delish!
I am really particular about how chicken is prepared…like extremely picky. I can thank Adrian for that one.
What you need:
1 Box KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce & Dry Rub, Sweet Honey
1 3/4 C. Pineapple Juice
4 Large boneless skinless, Chicken Breasts
1 C. Mushrooms, halved
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 C. Pineapple, diced
1 Purple Onion
- Combine 1 3/4 Pineapple Juice and 1 Pouch KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce & Dry Rub. Set Aside.
- Either cut the chicken up into bite size cubes or leave the chicken breast whole. Marinate them in the ingredients above that you set aside. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes. We did ours for about 6 hours.
- Wash & dry your veggies..and cut them up.
- Preheat your grill on high
- Assemble the chicken veggies on skewers any way you want to. Tip: The mushrooms and pineapples make good stoppers.
- Grill for about 12-16 minutes until cooked through. Tip: Brush the finished kabobs with the left over marinate.
** You can find the original recipe here on Yummly**
We marinated our chicken in the fridge 6 hours, if your chicken breasts are really thick you can poke holes in them. Like how you would to a baked potato before putting it in the oven.
We ended up using Shiitake Mushrooms, because the local little store didn’t have whole mushrooms..only the pre-cut ones.
Assembling the Kabobs!
Prior to grilling.
The rest of the marinade was brushed on the Chicken Kabobs.
Look at these beauties!
We paired ours with Oriental Rice, that my grandma Sue in Hawaii taught my mom.
What kind of Kabobs do you like?

For the longest time I have been wanting to make a homemade ice cream. When I was at Le Cordon Bleu I was taught how to make it, but it was sort of a process. Since Sophia is here..there…and everywhere within a blink of an eye, quick treats are right up my alley.
This recipe can be found at Some of This and That blog. The author did hers as a galaxy theme. My inspiration was my new Alex and Ani Unicorn bracelet, when I think of Unicorns I think tons of colors! Plus, I thought that Sophia would enjoy all the bright colors!

My entire family loves oatmeal. I prefer homemade oatmeal compared to instant oatmeal, but that doesn’t mean that if you look in my pantry you won’t find instant Quaker Oatmeal. If we don’t make instant we have Strawberry N’ Cream or Maple Brown Sugar on hand.
I am going to share with you my favorite ways to make stovetop oatmeal.
