I don’t know how it is where you live, but it’s a whole school week off here – sandwiched between two weekends. That’s nine days! As a kid in New Jersey, I remember only having a long weekend for February break. Although it’s possible we always had a week set off for it, but used more than our allotted snow days. That would not surprise me at all! Here, we have already used so many snow days – and have had two feet of snow fall in the last two weeks. It’s a winter wonderland in Northampton!

And it’s supposed to be 63 degrees by the end of the week. What?? April vacation is usually full of road trips and adventures, and inching our way into warm weather activities – or at least the ones that open in New England before Memorial Day. I have less time now for work, but more time for books, fireside snuggles, breaking up endless sibling bickering, and trying my hand at new kid-friendly recipes. We decided to work some magic with Eggo Buttermilk Waffles, as well as a new one to us.

Kellogg’s® Eggo® Chocolatey Chip Waffles.

You see, we just got some delicious news. Eggo Waffles now have colors and flavors from natural sources. The no artificial flavors, and the colors from natural sources pertains to the full Eggo® product line at Walmart. So off we went!

A trip to Walmart with two kids in tow. I tried to win a stuffed monkey in the crane machine, but lost. Usually, I win!

We’ve been Eggo Waffles fans since Scarlet could speak! I wanted to make a recipe they could enjoy for breakfast (in Des’ case), for lunch (in Scarlet’s case), and for snacks, dinner, dessert, etc. The delicious new news about the colors and flavors from natural sources is too good to resist for a family that can never run out of Eggo Waffles. They are just like the ones we make at home – still made on waffle irons – but larger ones! My kids ran to pick out old and new favorite flavors.

When we got home, we got out the ingredients to make Eggo Waffle Pizzas. I think the sky is the limit with the toppings but I tend to buy a few different kinds of fruits, pumpkin seeds, jam or jelly, peanut butter, and yogurt.

I think making them peanut butter AND jelly is an awesome breakfast, lunch, or dinner option. My kids didn’t want peanut butter, so I made the yogurt the star of the show as the “cheese” of the “pizza.” Assembling is almost as much fun as eating.

Only almost, though!

Delicious! I added some freshly squeezed orange juice to the mix, and almost felt like it was spring or summer with all the warm weather fruits. We enjoyed a snack together out on the deck. We were wearing jackets, but it was still nice enough for a picnic. It makes me so excited for spring and summer (and even fall) because of being more on-the-go. Although, it just makes us more creative in the winter. What I love about Eggo Waffles is that there is no end to their versatility and fun. Finding out the delicious new news was just icing on the cake – or toppings on the waffle pizzas. I love making these.

Three 20-Minute Appetizers For Your Holiday Party

These three 20-minute appetizer #recipes are perfect for any occasion, and to rock your holiday season! Also, enjoy a #Shutterfly #Offer #SavorTheMemory #ad

My parents had their annual holiday party at the farm over the weekend.

holiday party

It was the first time in EIGHT years that we had made it to one of their “famous” parties. Maybe I should say infamous, because they generally end with my dad blasting AC/DC as loud as it can possibly get – until it doesn’t sound like music anymore – and then the generation above me (and below) rocks themselves to sleep. It rocks, so to speak, and I’m happy to say that after all this time, my parents still party like the best of them! After the party we went to a friend’s wedding in PA.

holiday party

Back to the party, though! It was our first holiday party of quite a few this December and I was in charge of beverages. I LOVE being in charge of beverages. Then I can go and charm my parents and their friends with these beauties:

We had such a nice time, until well after midnight, and one of my parent’s good friends asked to use my phone camera at the end because, as he said, “These are the beautiful moments that matter. These are the moments you want to remember.”

Here are my five favorite party photography tips:

#1 – Try using props. People will know exactly what to do with them! I promise.

(Photo Booth Fun!)

#2 – Take portraits at parties. You will see such intriguing sides of people – having fun, letting go, and being in the moment. If they’re having a good or bad night, it will show. Either way, it makes for poignant memories.

(Taken at a wedding)

#3 – Get candid. It can be tricky to be truly candid because once people see your camera, they may change their behavior or demeanor. Sometimes, I just work with that. Often, I creep around and get as sneaky as I can!

#4 – Look for action shots. Eating, drinking, dancing, laughing. My favorites!

(Sorry there’s so much.. me in here)

#5 – Observe, get those details, and have fun! You never know what’ll you see.

These are the moments that matter, and this is the reason I became a photographer. It all started when I was on the school bus as a little girl and I admired how the sunlight came into the bus and lit a classmate’s eyelashes. I’ve always been someone who notices details. Whether you’re behind the scenes, or in front of the camera, Coca-Cola and Shutterfly have a deal for you!

And I did promise you three party recipes, right?

#1 – Cheesy Pigs in a Blanket Appetizer:

This one is a favorite and it’s easy
You’ll need puff pastry, hot dogs, and sliced cheese
Roll out the puff pastry and cut into six or so squares
Add a slice of cheese to each square
Add a hot dog to the end of the square
Roll up the square, the cheese, and the hot dog
Cut into three equal pieces
Bake in a preheated oven (at 400) for about 17 minutes

#2 – Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus:

This can be made year-round, whether on the grill or in the oven
You’ll need 1-2 packages of bacon, parmesan cheese, and 1 bunch of asparagus
You’ll need salt and pepper and toothpicks too (grilled version)
