It’s St. Patrick’s Day and it was a very busy day for us. First I made this super festive breakfast for Landon, Shaun & I, then we went to see Yo Gabba Gabba! Live! Let The Sillies Out. It was
fun awesome! Anyways, I found this recipe online a few days ago and decided to modify it to my liking. I’d link to the original recipe if I could find it again :-/
Just like my Luck O’The Irish Crispy Treats, it was really easy to pick the marshmallows out of the box of lucky charms. You don’t need very much for this recipe, though. I used packaged pancake mix. I know many moms, including myself, don’t always have time to make breakfast from scratch.

I got creative again in the kitchen with Shaun. Yesterday we made Luck O’ The Irish Crispy Treats. Which are rice crispy treats for St. Patrick’s Day (It’s almost impossible to blog with a toddler on your lap, I just put ‘Valentine’s Day’ lol) Anyways, this one was exciting for me because I got really creative. Sure, you’ve seen tons of green rice crispy treats for St. Patty’s Day, but have you seen them with lucky charm marshmallows?! This might seem kinda time consuming, but honestly I was able to pick out half a cup of marshmallows in just a matter of minutes. It really wasn’t that hard at all.

Okay I know it’s not a very kid friendly snack, but I wanted a funny name for it And if it helps, there’s no poop in it
Anyways, so this recipe was really easy. I had Shaun help make it, but that’s because I needed pictures – and seriously, this boy needs some hands on experience in the kitchen. It would be a wonderful “project” to do with your kids as well, as long as you are the one handling the hot, melted chocolate. Also, this recipe DOES contain nuts, but you can easily alter the recipe. I also have a few tips to make this a cheaper, easier recipe. Okay, enough rambling, as always…
Okay, so this weekend I had a friend over and we decided to have a few cocktails. I mostly wanted to do it for my Green Challenge this month. However, the first drink we had was horrible. It was so harsh going down and couldn’t imagine requesting someone to drink it. So we mixed and matched a few things and tried it different ways. Okay, it wasn’t even that hard, I just removed one of the vodkas. The taste is really sweet and the sour apple is wonderful. It kinda reminds me of a Jolly Rancher. Anyways, after the second…or third drink, we started thinking about names for it. Thus, The Mantis was born. Haha. Anyways, this is an adult beverage, not meant for children, no matter how much like candy it smells. I’m going to list exactly what I got but you can purchase different brands, if you prefer.
So remember the other day when I posted a recipe for my Cupcake-tinis? Well I still had a lot of batter leftover but didn’t want to waste it. So I decided to make toddler friendly St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes – let’s face it, Landon and a glass martini glass isn’t a very good combination. Anyways, so this recipe is very similar to the cupcake-tini recipe, with a few differences. So I’m just gonna start from the beginning.
Right before Valentine’s Day, I heard on the radio of a tasty treat called a cupcake-tini. I had no idea what it was or how it was made, but I knew I wanted it. So, I did some Googling, and found some tasty recipe for alcoholic drinks – not what I was looking for, but definitely a bonus!
Anyways, after some more Googling I felt confident enough in my research that I could make these cupcake-tinis, without a recipe. Lucky for you, I wrote everything down as I went, so I can share it with YOU!
Now this recipe is for a St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Cupcake-tini, however, you can make it with any cake mix – chocolate would be wonderful for a date night
