Mother’s Day is almost here!
What are your plans? I asked this question in our Sucré giveaway (btw, go enter if you haven’t already!!) and looks like a lot of you have some fabulous plans to celebrate! Yay!
Last year I wrote a very emotional for me post on Mother’s Day. You can check it out here. This year though it’s going to be cheery and fun! Spring weather is finally here (after the major snow storm on the first day of May…), birds are chirping, our newly planted grass is growing fabulously and I got a peak of baby squirrels living in our backyard tree! It’s a perfect time to pack the picnic basket, filled with goodies and head to the park! And that’s just what we did!
Mother’s Day is this weekend and I have some amazing giveaways coming your way to celebrate the event! Let’s start with a box of gorgeous goodies for the Mom in your life. I recently received a box of Signature Macaron Collection from Sucré.
When I started this blog, little did I know that besides expanding my baking skills, it would also become a source of a new passion for me. A passion for food photography. I’ve always loved to shoot pictures of my kiddos, but this was something absolutely new to me. I had so much to learn.
Let’s talk about simplifying life today. At least when it comes to saving and printing recipes. I want to make your experience on Crunchy Creamy Sweet as easy and user friendly as possible so today I will show you how to easily save my recipes using ZipList!
You may have noticed a new tab in the navigation bar. It’s called Recipe Tools. The drop down menu shows: Recipe Box, Shopping List, Meal Planner and Grocery Deals. All of them are tools that will help you save the recipe you want to your recipe box, but also make shopping lists, save deals for your local stores and create meal planners from saved recipes.
Let’s use one of the most popular recipes here on CCS, the One Hour Skillet Focaccia. Note: you have to create an account on ZipList to be able to save the recipes to your recipe box. It is totally worth the time as you can find this tool on sites like Martha Stewart, Epicurious and most of your favorite food blogs. It will go with you via the mobile app making it very handy during shopping trips.

There is a squirrel family living in our backyard tree. The mom is very protective of the little ones. She will run after any bird or other squirrel that will get too close to the opening of their home. Oh, and she yells. Like at me and my Hubby. Seriously! She will make this weird, angry, I-will-bite-your-head-off kind of sound. Have you ever heard a mad squirrel? It’s scary. I feel like I have to walk on my tippy toes when passing the tree. I see the momma squirrel’s head sticking out of the tree every morning. She is just watching….. I just hope one of these days she won’t jump on my head! Eeeek!
