Printable Christmas Planner: A Purposeful Peaceful Christmas

Printable Christmas Planner

2 Months and Counting!

 

Kasey here! Y’all I cannot believe that Christmas is 2 months away this year has gone by so fast! I am so excited to announce to you that we have revamped the Christmas Planner we designed a couple of years ago and are releasing it to you today! I so want to have as little stress in my life as possible where Christmas is concerned. I don’t want the most wonderful time of the year to come and go with regrets. But, I know that unless I make preparations now and start planning then I will end up missing out on special moments with my family. I’ll be honest planning and lists are not a normal part of my personality at all. But, with a new baby coming any day and Christmas quickly approaching I’ve got to plan ahead! You are going to love our updated printable Christmas planner. [Read more...]

Homemade Fall Candy & Popcorn Recipe

Kasey here, earlier this week my friend, Barbie, posted a pic of this amazing candy and popcorn that she and her husband made together. It was chock full of candy yumminess and I had to get the recipe!  It’s a family recipe that she has been making for years. In fact, she said her great aunt Glo taught her how to make it when she was just little in her kitchen at the beauty shop while her Grandma had her hair done. I love recipes like this, it’s such a great way to create memories that last a lifetime with your children. This is a perfect recipe to make with the kids, you can actually add any kind of candy you want (think left over Halloween candy). I have included Barbie’s instructions below.
  • First, I prep the candy I am going to put on top of the popcorn. I picked the blue M&M’s out of a couple bags of M&M’s and let the kids eat them while I crushed oreo cookies with a rolling pin in a gallon bag. I added candy corn as well.
  • Then, I popped popcorn. I use an air pop popcorn popper. If you don’t have an air popper you can pop popcorn in a paper bag in your microwave. It’s so easy and works great (how to here). Just be sure you pick out the kernels that didn’t pop either way. (I have heard of using regular microwave popcorn, but I’ve never tried it. I don’t know if the oils would cause an issue with the almond bark.
  • I think a pound of almond bark will cover about 15 quarts of popped popcorn. While it’s melting I cover a counter or my table with wax paper.
  • Once it’s melted I spoon it onto the popcorn and stir from the bottom up, adding more as I go. Once the popcorn is covered spread it out on the wax paper. Working quickly sprinkle the candy over the top and let the it sit until the it’s no longer tacky. It doesn’t take long, approx 20 minutes.
  • This is where my pictures stops, but this is really important. Melt some candy melts in a bag in the microwave, 15 seconds at a time on 50% power. Once it’s melted drizzle the candy melts over the top. It’s the glue that holds it all together. Let that sit up, break it up and turn it over and sprinkle with more candy and drizzle with candy melts again.
I love this pic of her precious babies waiting patiently for a bite. Do you have any family traditions that involve recipes that have been passed down to you? Making memories with our families is such a treasure. I personally hope my kids always remember us working in the kitchen together, creating our family’s favorite recipes.
