kohlsThank you Kohl’s for sponsoring this post/review

I love to entertain, having people over for a holiday such as Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Birthday’s and more. Any reason to get people together, have a nice meal and a few drinks is a perfect day to me. An element of entertaining that can be stressful is decorating the area just right. So I was excited to give Kohl’s a try in getting the room and table set perfectly. If you have not shopped at Kohl’s you are missing out, not only do they have a LARGE selection of beautiful items, they also have amazing sales that you can pair with coupons to score some great deals which will allow you to use Kohl’s as your one stop place to shop for all your table and seasonal décor. Here is a view of a some of the items that they have available for Spring in the home décor.

Kohl's ShelveAfter looking up and down the isles I decided to go with one of the beautiful pieces/patterns from the Food Network décor.

Kohl's Shelve 2This Garden Party I thought would be great for the whole Spring and Summer season!  Perfect for Mother’s Day brunch, Birthday Parties and more. Another thing that I really loved about this pattern is that it also comes in towels, napkins, potholders and more.

Kohl's 5After selecting new table linens I knew that I needed new dinner plates, salad plates and bowls. So I went over to the Food Network section and was so excited to find these beautiful Acrylic dinning items. Perfect for indoor or outdoor which is great for this time of year. Also with kids in the house and at the events its nice to not have to worry about them breaking my good stuff.

Once I got everything home and started to set the table I knew that I selected the perfect combination. Everything went well together, made a beautiful table which we used for Mother’s Day brunch and more.

Kohl's 1It’s so great to know that I can head to Kohl’s and get everything I need to make a Very impressive table with little fuss!  I am in love with the Home Décor section at Kohl’s and strongly encourage you to check it out next time you are hosting an event at your home. I received so many different complements on my table. I can’t wait for the next season to come around and do it all over again!

Must Have Nursing Bra by Nizo Wear – Serenity Nursing Bra

nizo-logo-small2Thank you Nizo Wear for sponsoring this review/post

I remember being a new mom and trying to find the most comfortable way to nurse my newborn. Its hard for a new mom to learn how to do it, and be comfortable doing it, or at least it was for me. I struggled finding a nursing bra that was comfortable and provided an easy way for me to feed on the go. I wish I had known about Nizo Wear at the time. They have a few amazing options perfect for nursing moms. Here is a little about Nizo Wear from the company website:

Nizo Wear nursing bras were inspired by the real-life experience of the company’s founder, Nicole Zoellner. When Nicole became pregnant with her son, she eagerly read all the materials her doctor had given her about the benefits of breastfeeding. She happily anticipated the feelings of serenity and bonding that nursing promises mother and infant.

Then her baby arrived, and Nicole discovered something distressing: Sometimes, breastfeeding hurts. For her, it was downright agonizing.

After a lot of searching for the best advice Nicole could find was to use warm compresses before nursing and cold compresses afterwards.But nobody could give her any tips for how to make the whole thing practical!

I received the amazing Serenity Nursing Bra:

serenityproductshot_smallI could not wait to get the beautiful Serenity Nursing Bra home and see how wonderful they are. The bra showed up so beautifully packaged. It would be perfect to give to a new mom as a baby shower gift or a new mom care package.

bra1

While unwrapping this beautiful package I could not wait to see and feel how wonderful this beautiful bra was going to be. The package really added to the excitement of this product. Here is what I found inside.

bra2Isn’t it beautiful?  For a nursing bra I was so excited to see something that looks and feels so comfortable. It also has some amazing features to make nursing easier, such as the unhook able straps, supported body and comfort. The snaps are easy to unhook.

Bra3

And really having this feature is a must for nursing moms. As you can see it allows to easily feed or pump without having to undress too much.

bra4
Overall I was very pleased with this nursing bra, and priced at $29.99 I would suggest getting a few to insure that you always have one to put on while you are nursing. These are a lifesaver. The comfort is amazing, the material is soft on the skin and really provides you the comfort yet support that you need.

Marbled Vanilla Mocha Cupcakes

Recipe by: Sara DeLeeuw, www.myimperfectkitchen.com, March 2014

 

Ingredients:

  •  1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 5.3 oz container of plain Greek Yogurt (I used Chiobani)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons strong black coffee

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with your favorite liners, plus an additional two liners on a separate pan, as this recipe will make approx 14 cupcakes.  Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter until the solids are completely dissolved.  Let it cool for a few minutes.
  4. While the butter is cooling, in a medium bowl sift together the flour baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
  5. When the butter is cool, pour it into the bowl of your stand mixer.  Add sugar and mix until well combined. The mixture may look gritty at first, but don’t worry, it will smooth out as you add other ingredients!  Add egg and mix for 1 minute.  Add the yogurt, milk and vanilla extract to the bowl and beat until well combined.
  6. Slowly incorporate flour mixture in the batter and combine until their are no lumps.  The batter will be very thick.
  7. Transfer 3/4 cup of the batter to a clean bowl.  Mix in cocoa powder and coffee until well combined.  The chocolate batter will be even thicker than the vanilla portion.
  8. Scoop approx 1 TBLS of vanilla batter into each pre-lined muffin cup.  Top with a small scoop of chocolate batter, then add an additional scoop of vanilla on top until all the batter has been used.
  9. Insert a butter knife into the center of each cupcake and twist gently to swirl the batter. If you’d like you can bake them without swirling the batter, which will give you a nice layered look to your cupcake.
  10. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 18-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting!

YIELD:  14 cupcakes

 

Chocolate Espresso Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Recipe Courtesy of Desi Massei, [desi]gn cakes & cupcakes, March 2014

 Ingredients:

  • 5 Large egg white, room temperature
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 4 sticks unsalted, room temperature butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled

 

Directions:

Combine egg whites, sugar, salt, and espresso powder in a heatproof bowl of a stand-alone mixer.  Whisk ingredients together.  Set over a pan of simmering water (double boiler). Whisk constantly by hand until the mixture is warm to the touch, and when rubbed between finger tips is smooth (sugar and espresso powder has dissolved).  Attach the bowl to the mixer and whisk (using a whisk attachment) together gradually beginning with low to high until stiff but not dry peaks form (they should be glossy). Once peaks have formed, SLOWLY add in butter, 1-2 tablespoons at a time until all is added.  Add in vanilla and cooled chocolate, then whisk until combined.  Switch to the paddle attachment and continue to beat on a low speed until the air bubbles are eliminated (approx. 2-3 min).  Add to piping bag & pipe with desired tip.
