Homegating Made Delicious with Loaded Baked Potato Pinwheels Appetizer Recipe

potatoes pinwheel appetizer

Cool fall weather and football are my husband's favorite part of the season. It gives him a good excuse to pull out the grill and hang out on the couch for hours enjoying his favorite sport and finger foods. Personally, I love the homegating experience because it usually means I don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking. I can simply pop one of our favorite Red Baron pizzas in the oven and whip up some hot appetizers. One of our … [Read more...]

Give the Gift for the Man Who Has It All – Beer of the Month Club


This post brought to you by Great Clubs. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Food Family & Finds. When it comes to gift giving, I always find it's the men in my life that are the hardest to shop for. My dad was always picky with no real wants or needs and my husband is even more mysterious. He's not the type to drop hints which leaves me forced to play the guessing game. That usually involves me writing down a list of his … [Read more...]

Andes Mints OREO Cookie Balls Recipe

Andes Mints OREO Cookie Balls Recipe

Lately my kids have been absolutely obsessed over cookie balls. They're like a cake pop only way more delicious because they're made with OREO cookies.

Rather than use a tablespoon or guess at how much cookie dough I need, I use my digital kitchen scale. I just plop a hunk of dough … [Read more...]

Ghirardelli Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Earlier this year when our family went on vacation in the Orlando area, we stopped at Downtown Disney (my favorite place on Earth!). Among the shops I spotted the Ghirardelli store which is shelves of chocolate, on top of chocolate on top of even more chocolate. Chocolate lovers dream right there! As much as I wanted to buy every darn thing in the store, I settled on a rather large tube of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate drops. They're like a … [Read more...]

Cherry Surprise Sugar Cookie Cups Recipe #IDelight

Cherry Surprise Sugar Cookie Cups Recipe

There are a lot of reasons to love the holidays. When I was a little kid, it was all about decorating sugar cookies with my mom. When I was a teenager, it was all about the presents under the tree. Then, when I became a mom, it was all about the time spent with my family. I started to appreciate the simplicity of what it is to be a child during Christmas time. I didn't have to worry about the decorating, the cooking, holiday shopping and … [Read more...]

On the Christmas Wishlist – Despicable Me™ Fireman Minion Stuart


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. It was about two weeks ago when the catalogs starting arriving in our mailbox. You know, the ones chalk full of every toy imaginable that sends kids into "I want! I need!" mode. Ours were no exception. It didn't take long before each of our three children had a Christmas wish list that was a mile long. Among all of the wish list items were some of the … [Read more...]
