If you have kids and have a hard time getting a healthy breakfast in them before school, let them choose or create a favorite flavor and help you make them ahead of time. Great boost before or after exercise. Make ahead convenience. A complete meal in a glass. I honestly can't drink a whole 2-cup serving at one time.

I love how Sangria can be super informal, like fruit punch. This beverage conjures up images of laid back beach days or casual back yard cook outs. Here are are two super simple variations of Sangria that anybody can make and enjoy! Plum and Grape Red Sangria, makes one large pitcher. Needed: 2 bottles of red wine (any kind you prefer), 4 cups juice (I used pomegranate, but you could also use grape or blueberry), 4 sliced plums, 3-4 handfuls sliced grapes and a few cubes of watermelon. Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. White Raspberry and Citrus Sangria, makes one large pitcher. Needed: 2 bottles of white wine (any kind you prefer), 3 cups orange juice, 2 sliced oranges, 2-3 handfuls of white raspberries.

You can add any kinds of fresh fruits you have one hand, so feel free to experiment. Weekly Deals & Frugal Recipes Archives - Romance on a Dime. Hello everyone!

We are a handmade candy shop that specializes in hard candy with images or words inside, the perfect candy for weddings, parties and special events. When did Papabubble begin? Papabubble was founded in Barcelona in 2004 with the goal of bringing back the charm of hand crafted sweets. How is Papabubble candy made?

Summer Fun Jars

For the Mudpuppy giveaway she commented: "So this summer me and the kids made a summer fun jar so I don't have to be as creative everyday. Each week they pick out an outing, a food to make, and an activity to do at home and we make sure we do all three that week. " Crystal I LOVE, love, love your idea! This approach to summer fun works really well for us. Blissfully Domestic -
