Oscars Party food

this post is sponsored by Blog Meets Brand and M&Ms and I was sent free samples to try but the recipe and opinion is 100% my own

What is your favorite part of watching the Oscars??? I love love LOVE the dresses (are you really that surprised?)! This year I can’t wait to watch Neil Patrick Harris, he’s seriously so much fun to watch. So I’ll be sitting at home (comfy in my PJ’s, wishing I was in a ball gown) watching and enjoy some themed PARTY FOODS!

How to make your own Turkey Stock

Have you ever made your own turkey stock? Every time I’ve made a turkey (and I’ve made a TON of turkey’s) I’ve always thrown away the carcass with a bit of a guilty feeling, but making my own sounded like SO much work, and what the heck would I make with Turkey Stock? Now of course I love cooking with Broth’s and Stock’s so I know EXACTLY what I’ll make with the stock! AND it’s SO easy, and fits naturally into the FEAST clean up.

Homemade Croissants

Here is my last recipe, Croissants, I made this year for our Blogger Thanksgiving! The FULL roundup with links to everyone will be posted tomorrow!

I have been making homemade croissants for years. I remember the first time I made then, about 7 years ago, I was so worried that they simply wouldn’t work. I mean they seem SO complicated! But in truth they are really SO easy, but a bit messy. There is simply a lot of waiting! Do a few steps, wait, do a few steps wait…. etc… But when you break one open they are SO worth it!

homemade croissants are actually super easy to make, just a little time consuming, but totally worth it.
