15+ Blender Dessert Recipe Roundup and a Blendtec giveaway

I’ve mentioned before my husband’s love of our blender!  He’s always making smoothies, who isn’t.  But I use my blender for all sorts of other foods.  So then I wondered what other people were using their blenders for!  It’s AMAZING how many OTHER recipes there are out there, not just smoothies, soups and dressings.  So today I present you with 15+ (I’ll be adding to it as I find awesome options) blender DESSERT recipes!

FoodFightWrite Food Blogger Conference Giveaway

I love blog conferences, in fact I have been to over 18! Each one is different and some I’ve repeated, some I didn’t. I’m always searching for conferences where I can learn something I haven’t already or meet people I haven’t already. I have yet to find a food conference I’m in love with so my plan is to try out a few over the next year.

TSRI Sizzling Summer Retreat – Scottsdale AZ

I had the most amazing summer. The kid’s and I had a family reunion in The Outer Banks, I took the Reader to Disney for her 13th birthday and of course our weekly trips to Lagoon. BUT out of all of that the most relaxing, inspiring and rejuvenating trip of the summer was The Sizzling Summer Retreat that Donna and Chad of The Slow Roasted Italian threw (follow #TSRIsummer to see more fun).

I have loved the amazing opportunities blogging has brought into my life and this one was unexpected and such a treat! This food bloggers retreat was hosted by the FireSky Resort in Scottsdale AZ. I had never been to a Kimpton hotel before so I wasn’t sure what it would be like, yowza! It was perfection.

Comfort Weighted Blankets

As a mom I’m always trying to find ways to help my kids with their difficulties. Every mom does, right? My kids just happen to have Aspergers so their difficulties are different than the average child.

Part of the issues for kids on the spectrum is sensory issues. Touch, taste, smell, sound and site. They are more sensitive to one or all of the senses. Computer boy has been overly sensitive since he was a baby. We had a few years where we couldn’t even touch his hair without him freaking out. Sound and light have always been a problem for him. We used to travel with his sheets because he couldn’t stand the feel of anything else.

I’m a Timeless Classic – giveway – closed

Blue Nile provided me with the necklace pictured below and are providing the giveaway in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love jewelry, is there a woman out there who doesn’t?  But we all have our own style, right?  My husband is too nervous to buy me anything because he know he’d get it “wrong” (can jewelry BE wrong? yes, yes it can) SO when Blue Nile approached me to try out there new “Leave nothing to chance” app I jumped at it!
