Healthy Homemade Avocado Lemon Salad Dressing Recipe
We are finally having some beautiful spring weather here. When we have nice weather I eat a lot more salad.  I tend to eat the same salad combos but like to mix it up with different salad dressings.   This smooth and creamy avocado dressing is pretty amazing. I like it on green salad, pasta salad or even a corn and bean salad. Hope you enjoy it too.
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 a clove garlic
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (red wine vinegar works too)
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • salt/pepper to taste
Blend everything in a blender or food processor  until smooth and creamy. Add just a bit of water if you would like the dressing a little thinner. I do! Then adjust the salt.
This makes about 1/2 cup or so (give or take). Depends if you like it a little thicker or not. It should last 2-3 days in the fridge – the flavor changes a bit.  Of course you can double the recipe and adjust it to your taste if you tend to like it more or less with the acidity of the lemon/vinegar.

Cinderella Party Ideas, Princess Bark, Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party Cinderella Magical White Chocolate Bark

Princess themed parties are a common occurrence in our house since we have 3 girls. I took my girls to the new Disney film Cinderella. They LOVED it, and I did too. My 7 year old has already informed me that she would like a Cinderella princess themed party for her 8th birthday party. SO it is time to start gathering ideas (easy ideas are my favorite lol) so I will be ready for her birthday in a few months.

For more ideas be sure and follow our Cinderella Party Ideas  board on Pinterest.  You might also like our Frozen Party Ideas post if you have Disney Frozen fans in your house.

cinderella barkSupplies Needed:
• Light Blue Candy Wafers
• Bright Blue Candy Wafers
• Bright White Candy Wafers
Blue Sixlets
Silver Pearlized Sugar Sprinkles

Other Supplies Needed:
Wax Paper
Microwave Safe Cup or Bowl
• Mixing Spoons
A Cookie Sheet

Cinderella Party Ideas, Princess Bark, Have Courage and be Kind, Recipe DIY ideas for Disney Princess themed Birthday Party treat ideasDirections:

1. This step not necessary but makes clean up SO much easier. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper with the wax side facing up.
2. Get 3 bowls to melt your chocolate in, you will want to melt them in different bowls. I guess you could wash the same bowl 3 times… it is up to you.
3. Choose which color will be your “base” and melt that one first in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted.
4. Pour your melted chocolate onto your wax paper and spread evenly across the wax paper using a spoon to make a nice thick base layer that is even thickness across.
5. Melt your next color using the same method in step number three. BUT instead of spreading it you will now drizzle this color on top of your base color so the base color can still be seen.
6. Repeat step number five using your final color of candy wafers. HURRY on to the next step as you chocolate still needs to be warm in order for the balls and sprinkles to stick.
7. Place your blue sixlets on top of the melted chocolate. If your chocolate hardens, the sixlets will not stick.
8. Sprinkle your silver sugar sprinkles over the top again ensuring they stick to the chocolate.
9. Place the cookie sheet into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours until the chocolate has completely hardened.
10. Once it is cool, take the edge and snap a piece off.  OR you can use the backend of a spoon to break the chocolate bark into smaller pieces.

Great LAST MINUTE treat idea for Easter Weekend! If you need more ideas, be sure and follow our Easter Pinterest Board. Peeps In the Dirt Pudding Cups, with OREO Dirt.  Quick and Easy Easter Dessert #Peeps, #Easter, #Pudding, #Oreos

If you need a QUICK and EASY treat idea for Spring or Easter then make sure you save this idea for Peeps Pudding Cups, Planting Carrots In “Oreo” Dirt. My kids were SO EXCITED when they saw these!

Peeps In the Dirt Pudding Cups, with OREO Dirt.  Quick and Easy Easter Dessert #Peeps, #Easter, #Pudding, #Oreos

You will need

  • Pudding Cups
  • 1 oreo of every cup (crushed)
  • 1 Peep for every cup
  • Starbursts (orange)
  • Rips Candy (green)

Carrot Cupcakes, perfect for Easter or Spring parties, Easter Cupcakes, #Carrots, #Cupcakes, #easter

First step is to make the candy carrots.  They are MUCH easier to work with when they are warm.  I heated up a rice bag in the microwave and set them on it to get them warm.  You could microwave them for a few seconds but you need to be VERY careful cause the hot candy can burn you (that is why I went with the rice bag method).

Cut your Starburst in half. Flatten the top of one end and make the other end pointed. On the flattened end add some green Rips, wrap the flattened end around the Rips and then roll the whole thing to form a carrot shape. Peeps In the Dirt Pudding Cups, with OREO Dirt.  Quick and Easy Easter Dessert #Peeps, #Easter, #Pudding, #OreosCrush one Oreo for every pudding cup, I put them in a bag and smash them with a soup can.  Open your pudding cups, place a Peep in the middle of the pudding cup. Sprinkle the crushed Oreos around the peep and then add the candy carrots.  Simple and easy Easter or Spring time treat that will make your kids smile! Enjpy
