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. Not long ago I took my girls to the 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 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.

Baked Zucchinni Sticks recipe Last month I posted a recipe for Fried Zucchini, it was well received but a few o you wanted a baked recipe instead.   The recipe varies a bit… the main difference is how I cut the zucchini and how it is cooked.

For the recipe you will need

  • 2-4 small zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Progresso bread crumbs
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive olive (to grease the pan)
Wash the zucchini and cut into quarters. I normally get about 8 spears from each zucchini.  Put in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and a light sprinkle of garlic powder.  Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top till well coated.

Then take the zucchini spears from the egg wash and roll them in Progresso Italian Seasoned bread crumbs.

Place them on a greased baking sheet.  Bake them at 425 degrees for 25-35 minutes till tender.

 Baking time will vary on oven, and size of the spears.  Enjoy!

Chicken Gravy Recipe

Have you ever made gravy from scratch before?  Roast a chicken in the oven and you will be left with drippings that are TOO YUMMY to waste.  I  wanted to share the recipe in case some of you have never made gravy from the drippings before.

This time I had about 2 cups of drippings in the bottom of the baking dish after roasting the chicken in the oven.  Pour the drippings into a large sauce pan.  If there is lots of fat skim some of it off.  Heat the drippings up, over medium- heat and bring it to a boil

In another bowl add 1 tablespoon corn starch to 1/2 cup of cold water.  Mix till all the lumps are out of the corn starch and it is well mixed… then you can slowly add it your chicken drippings.  Whisk the whole time, to prevent lumps.   Stir at a full boil for 1 minute, then turn heat off and let stand for 1 minute.  Salt and pepper to taste (chicken gravy tends to need a lot of salt).

 If you like your gravy a little thicker add a little more corn starch to your “corn starch water mixture”

BEST WAY TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES

how to freeze strawberries

One tip to saving money is to buy your produce in season at its LOWEST price point and store it for the rest of the year.  I got an 8 lb flat of strawberries  week.  I did 4 batches of jam, but put the rest in the freezer.  That way I can use them for recipes and smoothies  the rest of the year.

how to freeze strawberries

If you toss them all into a bag they will freeze into a huge mass and you will not get them separated till they thaw.  I have found the BEST WAY TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES is rather simple and can be done in 5 easy steps.

First ~ Wash and clean the strawberries, and take the green stem off.  If they are large berries you might want to cut them into halves or quarters.

Second ~ Put them on a towel to dry, you do not want them to be wet or they will stick to everything they are touching as they freeze.

Third ~ Once they are dry spread them onto a cookie sheet that has plastic wrap on it. Spread them into an even layer, and try to keep the berries from touching.

Fourth ~ Put them into the freezer, you can take them out as soon as an hour but I normally leave them in there at least a few hours to get them good and frozen.   You can even leave them in over night. They will now be hard and separated and will NOT stick to the other strawberries.  Pull the plastic wrap up and they should fall right off with no sticking. ( I did try the silicone mat and they stuck  so I recommend plastic wrap.)

Fifth ~ Place them in a freezer bag seal it shut try and get as much air out as you can.  Put it back into the freezer… and take as many strawberries out as you need at a time.  Now go make yourself a yummy treat for your hard work 🙂
