Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Eggs Recipe

Disclosure AffiliateChocolate Chip Cookie Dough Eggs Recipe

Where are my chocolate chip cookie dough fans??? I LOVE it and especially this type of dough that doesn’t include eggs, so you don’t have to worry about any danger from eating it – except maybe a few extra calories! This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Eggs Recipe is a fun treat to make and, if you want to make them year round, just go ahead and make the easier-to-form circles or balls instead and go ahead and dip those. And if you like these, be sure to also see our Copycat Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs recipe. Between the two of these you will have lots of yummy chocolate egg treats!

Easy Easter Basket Pie with Marie Callender’s

Sponsored Post DisclosureEaster Pie with Marie Callender's

Whenever we get together for holiday meals with the extended family, it’s always a potluck type meal. Each family brings a dish or two and the combined efforts of everyone all adds up to one delicious and FUN holiday meal! Part of the fun of our get-togethers, is that no one really plans who will be bringing what. So sure, that means that sometimes two people will bring meatballs – but at least they are each different recipes!

One of my favorite parts of these family get-togethers are the desserts. There will always be different types – from the simple to the fancy. No matter what the desserts, the special touches that make them stand out are always appreciated.

This year I’m letting Marie Callender’s give me a hand to make a special Easter dessert without a lot of effort on my part. Marie Callender’s has nine different cream pies that are waiting in the freezers of retailers nationwide for us to add a special ending to our holiday meals.

Marie Callender's Cream Pie Easter

I let my hubby choose the pie this time and he selected the Chocolate Satin Pie. I’m glad I let him make the decision, because I couldn’t decide between this pie, the Turtle Pie and the Coconut Cream Pie. They all looked so good! For the candy, I just headed to the Easter aisle and grabbed some of our favorites. To create the handle of the easy Easter basket pie, I grabbed some wire-edged pastel colored ribbon.

Creating the pie was the fun part! The chocolate rabbit took his place in the center of the pie and then I played around arranging candies around the “basket”. For the handle, I just taped the edges of the ribbon underneath the pie plate. Easy peasy!

Easy Easter Pie

Now comes the hard part. Do I put this back in the freezer and bring it to my Aunt’s house on Easter like I had planned, or do we eat it for dinner tonight? I think I’ll go with eating it tonight. This was so quick to make that I can easily swing by the store to pick up another Marie Callender’s Cream Pie and create another one (or two) for Easter.

You can find out more about Marie Callender’s Pies on their web site and on Facebook.

Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure Fun

Universal Orlando Resort Disclosure

Universal Studios Florida and Universals Islands of Adventure

To be honest, before I went to Universal Resort Orlando two weeks ago I really didn’t know much about it AT ALL. When I was invited on the trip I immediately went online to see what it was all about. I knew the basics that there were rides and movie-themed things and that was basically it. When I went to their web site, I saw Minions – cool! I saw Transformers – cool! And then I realized, THAT IS WHERE THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER IS – – AWESOME!

Dragon Diagon Alley

Needless to say, I started getting very excited and the trip itself did NOT disappoint. And yes, my initial excitement about The Wizzarding World of Harry Potter with Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida and Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure was well justified. It feels just like walking through the pages of the books. I was amazed at all of the small details they have implemented to make such a magical experience.

Universal Harry Potter Collage

I think that Diagon Alley is my favorite. I loved walking through the streets and seeing all of the shops from the book like Ollivanders wand shop, the Magical Menagerie, Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes and Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions. A gigantic dragon looms over Diagon Alley and occasionally comes to life breathing fire. Beneath the dragon is the goblins’ Gringotts bank. The lobby of the bank is just beautiful and filled with goblin bankers hard at work. This is the entrance to the Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™ 3D thrill ride that takes you through the bank’s underground vaults. One thing I loved about this and many of the other Universal Rides is that they make waiting in lines a fun experience with cool surroundings and interesting things to see, hear and watch.

Gringotts Lobby

Goblin Bankers Gringotts

From Diagon Alley we jumped on the Hogwart’s Express to take us to Hogsmeade at Universals Islands of Adventure. The train ride is not your boring old monorail – it is an adventure in itself. At Hogsmeade you can wander the streets of this wizarding village and even try Butterbeer! From the description I heard (basically like butterscotch) I didn’t think I was going to like it, but still wanted to get some just to taste it. It was really good! I ended up drinking the whole thing.

Hogwarts Express

Butterbeer

After refreshing yourself with a Butterbeer, you can make your way up to visit Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry itself – home of Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride experience. On your way to the ride, you make your way through the classrooms of Hogwarts we all know well from the books. This is an amazing ride that has you soaring through the air and really feeling like you are flying! (As a warning – if you get motion sick easily, this may not be for you. I don’t want you throwing up and blaming me!) If you are able to ride, it is an amazing experience.

Universal Studios Florida and Universal's Islands of Adventure

Of course there was so, so, so much more to enjoy at Universal Studios Florida and Universals Islands of Adventure besides Harry Potter. Some of my other top favorites are Despicable Me Minion Mayhem where you become a minion on the 3D ride (another example where waiting in line is SUPER fun!), Revenge of the Mummy (which may be the coolest ride ever) and TRANSFORMERS: The Ride-3D where you are right in the middle of the battle between the Transformers and the Decepticons.

3D Rides Universal Studios Orlando

There are lots of choices for coaster fans too. I loved the feature of being able to choose your own music to listen to while riding the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit. There are all genres to choose from. I ended up choosing KC and the Sunshine Band. There is also the super fast The Incredible Hulk Coaster that basically shoots you out at the beginning at a SUPER high speed!

Universal Roller Coasters

I have to say that I am just touching the tip of the ice berg of all there is to do at Universal Studios Florida and Universals Islands of Adventure. There are lots more rides, including rides for the little ones or those who like a little less “thrill” – like the High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride. And there is just so much to look at, from Springfield, the home of the Simpsons, to cool photo op spots – the actual DeLorean from Back to the Future, movie set streets, and a ton more.

DeLorean

I can’t wait to go back to Universal Orlando Resorts in September to see everything I missed and relive my favorites again. Take a look at the Universal Orlando Resort‘s web site. You will be amazed at how much there is to do and see.

My Puerto Rico Top 5 MUST DO List

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Puerto Rico Top 5 MUST DO List

One of my very favorite vacation spots is Puerto Rico. And, if we are talking about vacation spots in the US, it’s at the top of the list! What? Puerto Rico is in the US? Yes, it IS! That’s why it is easy to visit with no passport or currency exchange required.

We love visiting Puerto Rico not only because of its beauty, but also because there is so much to do. Whether it’s a trip with just me and my hubby or with the whole family, we always have an amazing time. Whenever we visit, I always wish that our vacation was longer because there are so many places we like to visit all over the island and never enough time to spend as long as we would like in each.

DSC_0507

And not only are there beautiful and exciting places to visit, the atmosphere of Puerto Rico is so inviting with friendly people and amazing food. They all combine to make a 5-star vacation experience.

It was very difficult to narrow down my suggestions, but if you’re heading to Puerto Rico for the first time, here are five of my MUST visits.

Castillo San Felipe del Morro

Castillo San Felipe del Morro – San Juan The San Juan National Historic Site is made up of Castillo San Felipe del Morro, Castillo San Cristobal, most of Old San Juan’s city walls, the San Juan Gate and Fort San Juan de la Cruz, which is across the entrance to the bay. While I highly recommend making time to visit all of it, if you are pressed for time you cannot miss El Morro. It is a fascinating step back into time to the rule of the Spanish and the extreme efforts that went into fortifying the entrance to the Caribbean. Besides exploring the fortress itself, we love to spend time on the extensive grounds, which are just perfect for flying a kite.

El Morro Kite Flying

El Yunque National Rainforest El Yunque is the only tropical forest in the United States. It has over a dozen different hiking trails, at differing levels of ability. It’s GORGEOUS there! There is green everywhere you look (not surprising for a rain forest) and beautiful waterfalls. One caution is that there is a lot of walking involved, so be prepared. On our trip last year we had a 5-year-old and a senior citizen along and it got to be a bit much for them, but for everyone in between there are easy trails for most abilities. Be sure to also stop at the Visitor Center to learn more about this amazing habitat. See more in this video narrated by Puerto Rican actress Roselyn Sánchez:
 

 
Isn’t it amazingly beautiful? It’s easy to see why it definitely fits the description of a five star World Class destination!

Parque de Bombas Ponce

Plaza de las Delicias – Ponce The southern region of Puerto Rico is also known as Porta Caribe (Gateway to the Caribbean) and is home to the city of Ponce. At the center of the city is Plaza de las Delicias, a classic old-world town square. In the square you’ll find Parque de Bombas – the city’s iconic red-and-black fire station (now a museum), a beautiful cathedral, and the fountain of lions. If you’re lucky, you’ll be there during one of the many festivals when you’ll find music and entertainment and tents set up to sell amazing street food and handcrafts. One thing you can NOT miss is a stop at King’s for ice cream. Seriously, you MUST go to King’s!

Arecibo

Arecibo Observatory – Arecibo Arecibo Observatory is the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope. You may have seen it in the movie Contact starring Jodie Foster, and based on a novel by astronomer Carl Sagan, or in the James Bond movie GoldenEye. There are exhibits that tell you about the history of the observatory and plenty of other info for science enthusiasts. Even if you’re not into science, it’s worth a visit for the amazing views alone. One of my favorite parts of visiting Arecibo is the drive to get there along winding roads through the countryside. While you’re near Arecibo, you should also visit Camuy River Cave Park. Believe it or not, I have yet to visit the Camuy caverns, but I vow to see them on our next trip as I have heard so many good things about them.

Isabela Puerto Rico

Northwest Coast – Isabela I love this area of Puerto Rico. The landscapes are gorgeous with its rocky coastline. If you love to take ocean pictures, your camera will be going crazy here. While not the best beaches for swimming, they are great for enjoying the sun and sand and watching the waves, which are popular with surfers. The area is also known for its Paso Fino horses. Horseback riding in Isabela on the beach and through the forest is something I wish I could do much more often!
