Blog Recap & Pretty Pintastic Party 10.16

I’m so glad you stopped by my weekly Blog Recap & Pretty Pintastic Party 10.16.  Before we get to the party, let’s take a look back at this week’s posts.

I created the cutest black and orange not-so-spooky OREO Owl Cupcakes.  The cupcakes are made from 2 ingredients – a cake mix and one can of Fanta Orange soda.  Then the tops are swirled into homemade chocolate ganache and OREOS are used to make big owl eyes.  This would be a fun project for the kids, too.

OREO and Fanta Orange - Spooky Halloween

To go along with the cupcakes, I made Jack O’ Lantern Juice with orange sherbet, Fanta Orange and pineapple juice.  It’s a refreshing drink for kids of all ages.  You can find both recipes here.

I received a water testing kit and tested my tap water to see if it was safe to drink.  I was holding my breath when I took the plunge and ran all the tests.  You can see the results here. I also joined  Vanity Fair® Napkins and shared 5 reasons to take back the table.  You can take the pledge to eat dinner together as a family, too.
