Celebrating Winter Blog Hop! Free Printable!

     I wish I could tell you that my house has wonderful touches of winter decor right now, but that would be a fib. Well a half truth. My winter decor is out (of the boxes), not placed in the right spot, and I have about 10 Christmas tubs that need to go up in the attic. Somehow the month of January has just escaped. Where has it gone? Hopefully I can get the house put back together before the weekend is up.

     Despite my lack of decor, I was able to create a fun printable for my house and I wanted to share it with all of you!

Tailgating Texas Style
Tailgating Texas Style!
    If you’ve been a regular reader of my blog, you might know that I live in a college town. When you live in a college town, you learn about tailgating really fast! Our family loves to tailgate. We also like to have parties at home for the Big Game. Today I’m sharing with you my recipe for Tex Mex Hot Wing Enchiladas. These are so easy to prepare because they use something so easy to find— Tyson Hot Wings. You can find these at your local Walmart in their deli section. They come already flavored and piping hot! I usually get the Tyson hot wings with bones and General Tso’s wings to serve regularly and then a batch of bbq or regular boneless prepared wings to make these fun enchiladas. They are fast to assemble and are usually a big hit. I hope that you will be able to use them for your next tailgate or game time party!

Laundry Room Ideas Inspiration Mood Board

Things have been quiet around the Hoff household lately. The new year started off with a bang, and then shortly slowed down when I had another kidney stone. I've been stuck in bed with pain meds and a heating pad. I've had a ton of ideas floating through my head though, and wanted to share them. I'm starting off with my Laundry Room Ideas & Inspiration Mood Board. We have a small laundry room and I really need to focus on making it an organized laundry room. I have lots of laundry room ideas, so it was great to put it on one board. I used Polyvore, which is great for room design ideas. So with out further ado, here is what I came up with:

A quick and easy dessert featuring healthy yogurt, pineapple, and cookie crumbs. Don't have time to make a healthy dessert or any dessert? There are no excuses now! This pineapple parfait only takes 5 minutes to make! Now that's a quick dessert! The recipe also comes with a free "Do Not Disturb / Pampering In Progress" door knob hanger so you can eat your dessert in peace! #MullerMoment #CollectiveBias #ad #pineapple #quick #easy #desserts #yogurt

     When my kiddos were young, my husband often caught me hiding in the pantry snacking on anything sweet I could find. We still joke about the time he came home to find me holed up in the pantry. I had a ripped bag of chocolate chips in one hand, and I was using the other to shovel them in (as he put it - “like an angry badger”!). I’ve come a long way since that desperate day. Friends, there are quick and easy desserts out there! There are also healthy options out there. I wish someone back then would have told me that it’s okay to want a time out from the stress of being a mommy. It’s okay to want 10-15 minutes of peace and quiet. To be a better mom, sometimes I need to take the time to fill up my tank in order to keep the mommy van going!  Today I’m sharing with you a quick and easy dessert that anyone can make (your kiddos could probably make it for you!). It features refreshing pineapple, crushed cookie crumbs, and one of my favorite yogurts, Muller yogurts. The yogurt I’ve used for this recipe is from their “Ice Cream Inspired” yogurt line. If you can't find them in your stores, be assured, they are coming soon. It is so good on it’s own! I love to have it as a midmorning treat, or a late night snack. When I feel like jazzing things up a bit, I go for this fantastic quick pineapple dessert! For all of my lovely readers who are looking for a sweet escape, I highly recommend it! It takes less than 5 minutes to make, and I’ve included a free printable door knob sign that can let everyone know you can not be disturbed, as you are enjoying your pampering time!

Downton Abbey High Tea || Starbucks Inspired Blueberry Scones

A melt in your mouth recipe for blueberry scones. Inspired by Starbucks in house version, this blueberry scone with hints of lemon and a crunchy sugary top will delight everyone. Serve during High Tea, or just as a mid afternoon snack. Perfect along side tea or coffee, or as a stand alone blueberry dessert. You won't believe how easy these are to make! Never made scones before? Never fear, this includes a step by step tutorial on how to make scones. #HighTea  #blueberries #Starbucks #scones #dessert
 There in nothing more quintessentially England than High Tea. The British love their tea. Whenever I serve tea at my house, or host a brunch or breakfast, I love to have scones on the menu. If you haven’t had a scone before, it’s a bit different. It’s not a biscuit, but it’s not a muffin. It’s a lovely buttery, crisp, flavored sweet bread in a smaller roll size. My favorite is blueberry. I modeled this recipe off of Starbucks in house version which features lemon and blueberries and a crunchy sugary topping.  Scones should not require too much work, but some recipes are more complex than others. I tried my best to bring you a fast, easy way to make your own scones. They are a perfect blueberry dessert, a great treat for friends, a wonderful snack to accompany your mid morning coffee, or like I show you here— perfect for a Downton Abbey inspired High Tea.
