Miss You Like Crazy Giveaway!

Just in time for Take Your Child to Work Day on April 24th Tanglewood Press is proud to announce the release of Miss You Like Crazy! It's a cozy story that offers comfort and ways of coping for kids whose moms have to work outside of the home. On behalf of Tanglewood Press I am pleased to offer you

Walnut and his mom agree that it would be fun if he could go to work with her, and they fantasize about the adventures they could share. While they realize that scenario can't always happen, Walnut's mother assures him that he is always on her mind, and together they come up with ways to have a physical presence for each other even when at work or at school.
Working parents know that in spite of time away from home, their children are never far from their hearts and minds. This light-hearted story provides parents an opportunity to reassure children on their importance in busy parents' lives. 

On behalf of Tanglewood Press I am pleased to offer on lucky reader a Miss You Like Crazy Book, a 5x7 Mommy and Me frame, and a keychain photo holder as pictured below.

Triple Delight Cake Recipe!

I love baking! My husband loves it when I make good deserts! You know the saying a way to a man's heart is through his stomach!

I made up this yummy light and fluffy cake Pictured below!

It's very simple to make! 

1 box of Angel Food Cake
1 container of strawberries
1 container of blueberries
1 container of raspberries
1 tub of cream cheese frosting
1 small jar of fudge topping
1 small jar of caramel topping

Make the Angel food cake according to the box. Spray pans with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter into 8 or 9 inch cake pans. You don't need a lot of batter in each I just make sure it's equal among all 4 cake pans. Bake it for 20 mins at 350 degrees. Loosen cake while it's hot. After cake has cooled. Place one layer of cake down add sliced strawberries all over. Then heat the cream cheese frosting till runny about 30 seconds drizzle it over the strawberries then place another layer of cake on top. Drizzle cream cheese frosting on that layer and then add blueberries and drizzle a little more icing on top of them. If you don't drizzle some of the frosting down before the blueberries tend to roll off. Then add the next layer of cake and place sliced raspberries on top. I slice them down the middle. Drizzle with cream cheese frosting. Then add the last layer of cake. Heat the toppings in the microwave to make them runny. I drizzle the fudge and the caramel over the top. Top with a strawberry if you want. :) Cut and enjoy! I always have half a tub of frosting left and of course plenty of the fudge and caramel topping to do another cake. 

*Disclosure: This is my personal recipe if you share it please give me credit. Thanks!*

Sorry for the MIA

As a with a lot of you, I have been super busy with the holidays! It is always crazy at my house being a mom of 8 kids. 

Both my sons got their first deer this year! I will have to post pictures! Then my precious little Savannah decided to start crawling the Sunday before Christmas and cut her first tooth.

So, we have been having fun with a mobile baby and teething! Oh the joys! Once she started all that she been pulling up with everything. I really am sad she is growing up so fast! 

Just last week my oldest son got his permit. Which makes me sad as I remember the day he was born like yesterday! I don't feel like I am old enough to have a child driving. 

But it's all apart of growing up. Boy have the years flown by. 

I just wanted all my readers to know I haven't disappeared. Right now I have been dealing with 2 sick babies. So, I do apologize for not posting as much but family does come first.

Pictures to come soon as well!
