I’ve got three great Snacking with Ritz recipes for you today that will have the family jumping for joy :)

Snacking with Ritz

My boys come running through the door after school starving.  Apparently they rush so fast through their lunch so they can have more time to play at recess.  I put together some fun bite size snacks that the whole family will enjoy using Ritz Fresh Stack Crackers.

First up are these fun Pepperoni Pizza Stackers.   I layered pepperoni, sliced cheese sticks and a dollop of pizza sauce over Ritz Fresh Stack Everything Crackers with onion, poppyseed, garlic and sea salt.  The boys went nuts for these!

Snacking with Ritz

There’s just something about chocolate hazelnut spread that makes my whole family smile, especially my 9 year old.  I made these fun simple snacks with him in mind because I knew his face would light up when he saw them on the table.  I used the Ritz Fresh Stack Original variety and layered them with chocolate hazelnut spread and mini marshmallows.  Simple and fun!

Snacking with Ritz

Peanut butter with apples and honey take me back to my childhood.  My mom would slice up apples after school and have honeyed peanut butter ready for dipping.  I layered Ritz Fresh Stack Whole Wheat Crackers with peanut butter, thin apple slices and drizzled honey.  Such a perfect after school snack, all three of my boys wanted seconds :)

    Tuscan Broccoli and Cheese Quesadilla

    We really enjoyed this Tuscan Seasoned Broccoli.  It paired perfectly inside the crispy quesadilla and the kids even finished the leftover broccoli that wasn’t needed for the quesadillas.

    Tuscan Broccoli and Cheese Quesadilla

    As a child, my mom always prepared our quesadillas on the stovetop so I’ve continued that tradition in our home.  You don’t have to heat up the oven and it literally takes a couple minutes each side to cook.    I love how crispy it turns out too!

    Tuscan Broccoli and Cheese Quesadilla

    Fold your tortilla over the filled half and let cook on both sides until golden brown and crisp.

    Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers come in a variety of  of seasoned, sauced or blended vegetables.  I love that I can add them so simply to many of my dinners and make a completely new recipe.  

    Tuscan Broccoli and Cheese Quesadilla

    How fun are these quesadillas?  Broccoli and cheese are a match made in heaven, I love them together in this quesadilla.

    Before, I would just whip up a quick cheese quesadilla for the boys and now by adding some Tuscan seasoned broccoli florets, I’ve got a gorgeous new dinner idea.  Hope you enjoy!

    Thrilled to share the fun we had at Universal Studios Orlando Florida for the Family Forward event!

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

    Last week we took off for the long Labor Day weekend with 2 of our 3 boys (Pax stayed home with grandma) to Orlando!  The boys got to sit in the pilot chairs.  We were off to a great start!

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

    The boys were over the moon to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios.  I could not get over how realistic everything looked!  Literally was like walking through the movie.  Love this dragon sitting on top of Gringotts Bank :)

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

    We got to try Butterbeer and Butterbeer ice cream for the first time.  Let’s just say we had our fair share during our time in Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, lol!

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

    Another highlight of our trip was getting to prepare a delicious pasta salad with our family and Barilla as part of their Share The Table program! It has been a pleasure partnering with Barilla this year to spread the word that meaningful mealtimes help families feel closer, be healthier and even appreciate each other more.

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

    There was a “Share The Table” photo booth….we took full advantage of being goofy together :)

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    Later that night we saw The Blue Man Show Group!  Oh my gosh, we loved it.  The boys were cracking up the entire show….so was my  husband and I.  Great for the whole family.

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    Saturday morning we were greeted by all of the Universal characters  and got to walk the red carpet to meet them all.  I am obsessed with photos, so this was a dream for me.  Hello, it’s Optimus Prime!!

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    Couldn’t pass up a selfie with a minion, the gang from Simpson’s and of course Sponge Bob.  Fun times.

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    Honeydukes Candy Shop in Hogsmeade was literally a dream.  The colors, the candy….everything!  Loved shopping through this place.

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    We heard so much about the giant Simpsons donut that we had to try it for ourselves.  It did NOT disappoint!

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    Cookie Dough Fudge in the middle of Hogsmeade.  Love!!

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

     

    We had a very special night at Give Kids The World.  This magical ice cream parlor serves ice cream to it’s guests morning noon and night.  What a dream :)

    Universal Studios Orlando Florida

    This was truly a dream weekend with our big boys.  We sure missed Pax, but he had fun with grandma while we were gone :)  We hope to make it back to Orlando in the near future.  So many fun memories with the family.
