S'Mores Anytime!

I love camping and no camping treip would be complete without making S'Mores. But sometimes I crave a S'More with all of it's graham cracker goodness, gooey marshmallow and melted chocolate at home. So for these cravings a family member introduced me to the Microwave S'More's Maker. Here is the rundown this great gadget:

  • Make up to 2 S'mores in the microwave in 30 seconds or less.
  • Unique water reservoir ensures even heating all around.
  • Handy "arms" prevent s'mores from falling over while cooking.
  • Mix and match to create your own one-of-a-kind treat.
  • Dishwasher safe
  • BPA free

  • Make S'More out of your day!

    Waiting on Wednesday! (12)

    "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we can't wait to get our hands on...hosted by:

    This book is from one of my favorite authors, Lisa McMann. I can't wait to start this new series!

    CRASH (Visions #1)
    by Lisa McMann
    Expected Publication Date: 01/08/2013
    Publisher: Simon Pulse

    From Goodreads:
    Jules lives with her family above their restaurant, which means she smells like pizza most of the time and drives their double-meatball-shaped food truck to school. It’s not a recipe for popularity, but she can handle that.

    What she can’t handle is the vision. Over and over, Jules sees a careening truck hit a building and explode... and nine body bags in the snow.

    She has no idea why this is happening to her or if she’s going crazy. It hardly matters, because the visions are everywhere--on billboards, television screens, windows--and she’s the only one who can see them.

    But it’s not until the vision starts coming more frequently, and revealing more clues, that Jules knows what she has to do. Because now she can see the face in one of the body bags, and it's someone she knows. Someone she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember.

    Waiting on Wednesday! (11)

    I can't wait to get my hands on this book! Cinder was great and I am anticpating the same for Scarlet!

    Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2)
    by Marissa Meyer
    Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
    Expected Publication date: 02/05/2013

    From Book Buzz on USA Today Books:

    Marissa Meyer reimagined Cinderella as a teenage cyborg mechanic in her debut novel Cinder earlier this year, and with her new follow-up Scarlet, Little Red Riding Hood is a firebrand from France.
    Due out in early 2013 from Macmillan, Scarlet is the second book in Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles young-adult series. Cinder reappears in the next futuristic tweaking of a familiar fairy tale — as does Prince Kai, the evil lunar ruler Queen Levana, and a heap of intergalactic intrigue.
    Debuting in the new book, however, is Scarlet Benoit, a young French woman who enlists the services of a street fighter named Wolf when she finds her grandmother, a former military pilot, gone missing.
    Two more fairy-tale fantasies will follow Scarlet, including Cress (2014), Meyer's take on the Rapunzel legend, and the Snow White-inspired conclusion, Winter (2015).

    This book appeals to me beacuse I always love a good zombie story, and this one is mixed with a love story. Can't wait!

    Alice in Zombieland
    by Gena Showalter
    Publisher: Harlequin
    Publication date: 9/25/2012

    From Barnes & Noble:
    She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave.
    Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
    Her father was right. The monsters are real.
    To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.
