A Candy Castle Fortress Birthday Cake Decorated With Hershey Bars, Oreo Cookies and Kit Kat Bars!

Posted by in Birthdays, Holidays, Birthdays & Celebration Ideas

It’s about time that I showed you the Castle Cake that I made for my little guy last fall. Connor absolutely loves knights, dungeons, and anything midieval. So, it was only fitting that his birthday be a midieval theme, and of course we would need a castle cake! 

Let me tell you, 99.9% of the castle cake ideas I searched for looked complicated and more fitting for a princess than a prince. It took some determination to find a simple, scary dungeon cake. Thankfully, I found a picture of a candy castle similar to this one. I couldn’t find instructions to go with my picture, so I just used it as inspiration to make this Candy Castle Fortress! Any prince or knight would go crazy over this dungeon like castle. Scary, I tell ya!

Orange Chicken Recipe

Orange Chicken Recipe

Posted by in Main Dish, Poultry, Recipes

Sometimes, I just get a hankering for Chinese Take Out! But, my husband has peanut allergies, and has had bad experiences with the food we have ordered from some restaurants. Bummer, for us! We usually wait until Mike has a business trip, and go crazy with take out! But, in the meantime, on those nights that I  just have to have that salty, starchy, meal…I improvise. Luckily, there are some really amazing recipes out there that are a great substitute for Chinese Take Out that I can adapt to meet our needs. This recipe is quite possibly the best Orange Chicken, I’ve ever had! I’m telling you homemade is so much better than the restaurant versrion! Love this Orange Chicken Recipe. Here it is:
