Milk Bar's Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookies

I really like Milk Bar... but I don't live or work in the city anymore so I haven't had anything from there in years. Cut to this weekend... I'm shopping at Target and I see a display of Milk Bar cookie mixes!

I have a thing for fun unique baking kits... I have tried a Crumbs cupcake kit, a Fatty Sundays do-it-yourself pretzel kit, and even a cake pop kit from Sweet Lauren's

I purchased the Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookie Mix and I was surprised at how well they turned out! They actually tasted like the cookies I used to get at Milk Bar!
 Toasting the cornflakes

They are loaded with butter so you get that great browned butter flavor, then the crispy cornflakes give you a crunch and the marshmallow gives the cookies a great chewiness. 

Bold statement alert... I think this is my favorite kit so far!

Now if I could only get Milk Bar's cereal milk at Target...

New Grape Taste Test

I was feeling like I was the only person who hadn't tried the new Cotton Candy grapes... I couldn't find them anywhere. A friend would tell me they just found them at Whole Foods... but then I would show up and by the time I got there they were sold out.

I was finally able to find them at Fresh Direct! My husband and I decided we wanted to try the other new grapes as well, so we ordered 3 kinds and had a taste test this weekend.

I love cotton candy... but was disappointed by the Cotton Candy grapes. While they did have a strong cotton candy smell... both myself and my husband didn't think they tasted like cotton candy. The Cotton Candy grapes weren't crisp and they had a funny aftertaste. 

The Flavor Promise grapes were very good and my husband liked them the best out of the 3 we tried. They were very sweet & crisp.

My favorite were the Moon Drop Grapes! They were sweet and the shape was very cool.Moon Drop grapes are longer than regular grapes. I think they would be a great addition to a cheese platter.

Barbecue Birthday

We celebrated my husband's birthday over the weekend! It was pretty low key but I thought I would share a few photos.

He recently mentioned that he wanted a charcoal grill and an alert went off in my head... this would be a great birthday present!

I love the classic Weber grill and decided to get him the blue Weber Performer Deluxe from Crate & Barrel because it would give him a prep table/work surface.

I found these fun grill themed birthday cards at Hello Lucky and I Loot Paperie .

And his birthday cake was homemade... a blue grill to match his gift!

Grill shaped mylar balloon!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband!

Mini Baby Bunting

My friend's baby shower was today! I put together a diaper caddy gift for her. She register for the Munchkin diaper caddy and I filled it with baby powder, wipes, diaper cream, baby wash and diapers from The Honest Company. I made a little banner with bakers twine and paper straws to personalize it.

I love the Honest diaper prints... so fun!

Can't wait to meet baby girl Dziomba!

I fell head over heels for the first car I ever bought. He was an adorable limited edition 2003 Chromaflare GLX VW Beetle in Cyan/Purple. Yeah that's right... he was a color changing Beetle! He looked different depending on the light or the angle you looked at him.... Turbie was beautiful!

My Turbie parked in the Meadowlands near Metlife stadium.

I named my car Turbie because he was a turbo Herbie. I loved my Turbie but sadly it was time for me to part ways for something more reliable. I never ever would have thought I would have been so attached to a car, but I really was.

I think that it is pretty common to be attached to your first car. My car stood out, so everyone saw it. When I sold it and started driving my new car, every one asked me where my car was and I sadly told them I decided to get a new car. And that would spark whoever was talking to me to tell me about their first car and they would light up when they talked. Usually the stories had the same theme, their first car wasn't practical because it was a two door or because it was an extreme gas guzzler but everyone had memories of their first car just being so much fun.

I have a new more practical car now and I do love it but my first love will always be my Turbie.

Thanks for the memories Turbie!

Kentucky Derby 80th Birthday Party!

My mom and my 3 aunts threw a Kentucky Derby themed birthday for my Grandma this weekend... and it was EPIC! They went all out, the party was a DIY masterpiece. 

Held at Niagara Frontier Country Club in Youngstown, NY...  the invite instructed guests to wear the best derby attire and ladies were told to wear their hats!

Posters of horses, famous jockeys were hung on the walls.

A few of the posters.

A photo booth was set up and the kids loved it!

Beautiful horseshoe cake with red roses from The Village Bake Shoppe.

The spinning musical flower birthday candle was a big hit!

Dessert table had homemade bourbon balls, horse shaped sugar cookies and cupcakes!

My Aunt Connie made this giant horseshoe!
Guests were given a rose lei to wear during the party.

 Lots of games were played and prizes included wine, mint julep kits, the game Hold Your Horses and movie night gift baskets.

The horses that adorned every table were generously donated by 4 year old little Miss Natalee. My Aunt Connie just added the roses!

This was such a fun day and it was wonderful to see so many people come out to celebrate my Grandmother!
