Rice Krispies treats are kind of a tradition in my family. I feel like growing up, they’re kind of a staple. Probably because they’re super easy & cheap to make. And rarely do kids complain about them. Making a full batch isn’t necessarily hard or time consuming, but it leaves you a ton of dessert. This recipe is perfect for a quick treat or a way to use that last cup of cereal left in the box. Continue Reading

Looking for an easy cookie recipe that tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen for hours? One of my favorite tricks is buying Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix and adding in other ingredients to make them even better.
I’ve never tried the other cookie mixes, but I’m sure they’re great as well. I really like the consistency of the oatmeal cookies because they’re not super chunky. They’re more of a ground up oatmeal texture.
You just follow the directions on the bag, but add in your own mix ins to make them extra tasty. I like to add Heath/Toffee bits & mini chocolate chips. I use mini chocolate chips because they’re about the same size as the Heath Bits, giving the cooking a balanced texture.
I love them because they’re a little salty, sweet, chewy & a total crowd pleaser!
Festival season is upon us! So many awesome music and entertainment festivals coming up – starting with one of my all time favorites, SXSW (aka South by Southwest). I get a lot of questions about shows and which festivals I recommend, so I thought it would be fun to start by doing a breakdown of SXSW and my “pro tips”.
SXSW is a massive festival/conference filled with music, networking, and inspiration in Austin, Texas! This year’s event includes expanded access for all badge types with a ton of new opportunities for learning, networking, and discovery. There are a ton of different way’s to experience SXSW and there’s a ton of information online. I highly recommend starting by browsing Pinterest. There are tons of tips, recaps & ideas. But where do you begin?
