The Best Sweet Potato Casserole You’ll Ever Eat

The Best Sweet Potato Casserole You'll Ever Eat - mommylikewhoa.com

I am not the biggest fan of sweet potatoes. I can eat them as fries if I’ve got enough ranch, but please don’t send those marshmallow topped ones my way, because pass. For years and years I have passed on my mother’s Sweet Potato Casserole as it came my way on the assembly line of holiday foods. I didn’t think I liked them, they didn’t appeal to me. But then one year, it all changed. I just tried them. I let go of the stubbornness of 20+ years and said “Fine! OK! Here, I’ll try them!” Folks, that day, I became a lover of Sweet Potato Casserole. Something just snapped, clicked, made sense. And you know what? They were the best thing I’d ever tasted. They are sinfully delicious, and could be placed on the dessert table without fuss. They taste like a cross between sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie, but without the crust. I was hitting myself over and over for waiting so long to try them. Don’t be like me, try these now.Continue Reading

Slutty Brownie Pie

Slutty Brownie Pie - Mommylikewhoa.com

So you’ve heard of the slutty brownie right? They seriously get themselves around quite a bit. I’ve been meaning to try my hand at my own version of a slutty brownie for a long time, and when I got a chance to try Hampton Creek’s Just Cookies all natural, cholesterol and egg free, allergen friendly and sustainable brand of cookie dough (yes – you heard all of that right!), I knew what I had to do. I wanted to try something a bit different than the traditional pan, and went about my way to make a rich, indulgent Slutty Brownie Pie. It’s super easy, chocolately, delicious and a great way to use up left over holiday candy. (Leftover candy? Who are we kidding here?)Continue Reading

What I Wore Wednesday – Pearl & Clasp Review + Highlights from WICKED!

What I Wore Wednesday - Pearl & Clasp Review - mommylikewhoa.com

So honestly? This is the first time I’ve ever done one of these, but two weeks ago for my mom’s birthday we took her to dinner and to see Wicked, and I just loved my outfit and everything and I wanted to share my experience with the show. It wasn’t what I wore *THIS* Wednesday, but it was a Wednesday and I am a bit of an anarchist (just kidding). Anyway…Continue Reading

Guardians of the Galaxy Gamora Makeup Tutorial - mommylikewhoa.com

I am a HUGE nerd. Geek. Dork. Whatever you want to call me, let’s have at it. I love me some Doctor Who, and Star Wars and over here at the Blevins house we’re big fans of Marvel. So when Guardians of the Galaxy came out last Tuesday , we rushed to Walmart of pick it up on the BluRay DVD combo pack. That way we can have family movie night on the big screen with the BluRay in the living room, or the kids can watch it on DVD in their room. Me, being the nerd I am, decided that I needed to get all crafty and do some cosplay makeup for the character of Gamora. She’s got green skin, so I decided to greenify myself (again!) for the sake of art.Continue Reading

Cranberry Bliss Bar Copycat Recipe

Cranberry Bliss Bars - Starbucks Copycat Recipe - Mommylikewhoa.com

You know I love me some Starbucks Copycat Recipes – maybe you remember my Salted Caramel Bars from the beginning of the year? Well besides those delicious Salted Caramel Bars, one other favorite seasonal item from Starbucks menu are their Cranberry Bliss Bars. Seriously. So. Good. If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend them, and if you have, and love them as much as I do, now you can make your own! They taste better than the Starbucks version, and are a lot cheaper too! Starbucks sells their Cranberry Bliss Bars in trays to take your holiday parties, but seriously, it’s so easy to make your own! I love to bring these to parties because everyone eats them up and takes a few home for later. Continue Reading

ShaveMOB Stocking Stuffer Awesomeness #shavesmarter

normal_sans_back-stocking-stuffer-image

 

So I don’t know about you guys, but stockings are seriously one of my favorite things to put together. I love looking for the perfect little tokens to fill up our stockings. I get really crazy about them! I love it because 100% of the stocking is always a surprise… I never put anything in there that anyone really asked for, but everything in there is something they need. Except for maybe chocolate… I don’t know if they NEED chocolate – but we could argue that all day. It’s so funny to watch the kids say “How did Santa know I needed a new toothbrush!” or “I didn’t even know they made this! Cool!” But the hardest person to shop for, stocking or no, is my husband.Continue Reading
