Kiss Me I'm Irish Straw Topper Craft

I am a compensated member of the Truvia network of Honestly Sweet Bloggers. Product has been provided but opinions and product usage are based on my own experiences. March is probably my least favorite month of the year. It almost always comes in like a lion as it is this year with the snowstorm on the way and it tends to forget it's suppose to go out like a lamb.

Mint Chocolate Shamrock Shake for St. Patrick’s Day

For a couple of weeks now I've been hearing buzz about the McDonald's Shamrock Shake. People are literally tripping over themselves to get in line for one, or maybe that's just my husband. Regardless, I've never ever tried a Shamrock shake. For some reason, the idea of a mint flavored milk shake just doesn't sound appealing. For me, mint is meant to be a subtle flavor in desserts, not necessarily take the star role. That said, I decided to try … [Read more...]
