As a busy mom, slow cooker recipes are essential. This sweet & spicy marinara sauce is perfect when paired with meatballs in the slow cooker and it’s very easy to make. It can be used as an appetizer for large crowds, or made into meatball marinara sliders (or subs) for a main dish. While this Slow Cooker Sweet & Spicy Marinara Sauce recipe is a sponsored post for Farm Rich, all opinions are my own.

Minecraft is something that came into my life in full-force. I understand most of the Minecraft terminology, yet I don’t really know how to play it. Honestly, the gaming controllers intimate me these days. However, for my boys it is a completely different story. They love playing it and from what I can tell, they have learned a lot from the game.

These candy cane game ideas were written as part of my Let’s Play Ambassadorship. Let’s Play is an initiative by Dr Pepper Snapple Group that provides kids and families with the tools, places and inspiration to make active play a daily priority by building and improving playgrounds and donating sports equipment to groups in need. Even though I am being compensated, I fully believe in the initiative. All opinions are my own.

During this busy month we are stretching ourselves thin trying to get everything complete (or maybe that’s just me). Our joyous holiday season can begin to feel more stressed as we get through the motions. I suggest gathering a few friends and taking a refreshing break.

Most of the time when I am talking about entertaining and gatherings, the focus is on food and decorations. Today I want to shift gears just a little. While I am sharing a tutorial for decor, I also want to talk about an adult beverage that is also present at these gatherings: wine.

I have shared many reason why I love being in the kitchen with the family. Making memories while creating delicious recipes and treats is priceless. To continue our holiday traditions, we made this Rice Krispies Layered Holiday Tree. It’s even great for parties, gatherings and movie nights.
