Wed Wednesday // Farm Wedding

llama wedding picture
If you know me, you know I love Llamas. As I’m planning my wedding, I literally can’t think of anything better than having a llama there! I found this image (my favorite pin of the day) on Style Me Pretty, and photographer Robyn Van Dyke captured it so beautifully!  I can’t believe my wedding is around the corner, there’s so much to do, and I’m so glad that Gregg and I are taking our time, and enjoying the process.

Wise Words // Stop Complaining

stop complaining

Do you ever have to stop and metaphorically slap yourself in the face for complaining? Well, give yourself a pat on the back neck time for recognizing it, and making a change. We can complain about a situation for countless hours, but it probably wouldn’t do much good. We can make a choice to handle our annoyance/frustration/emotion in another way. I’ve been dealing with a sticky situation for some time now, and when I find myself getting frustrated, I start thinking about the wonderful things in my life, and how this little thing can’t affect that, I won’t let it. (Okay, maybe I’ve let it bring me down a couple of times, but I’m learning!) And yes, you’re totally allowed to cry about it, but don’t let it ruin your day!

Happy // Reasons To Be

I have a lot of reasons to be happy. I decided it’d be worth spreading the joy, and sharing some of the things that make me happy. I’d love to hear what makes you happy!

I’m starting this series very cheesecake, with Pharell Williams and Despicable Me. That movie, and that song make me want to get up and dance. How cute are the minions?! That’s just one reason why today can be great, because cute things like minions exist!

Life // Passover Matza Crack

Sugar and Type Matza Crack This may be the easiest recipe ever, and I still managed to screw it up on my first try. I’m pretty notorious for not being the best cook in my family, but I’m definitely getting better!

Ingredients/materials:
2 Sheets of Aluminum Foil
1 Baking Sheet
4 Sheets of Matza, you can use the extra for “matza pizza”.

Sugar and Type Matza Crack

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2) Lay pieces of matza on a baking sheet. I used wax paper to keep it from sticking, and that was the worst idea ever. Don’t use wax paper, use aluminum foil.

3) Heat the carmel sauce in the microwave for about 15 seconds, and spread across the matza. Use a rubber spatula to spread it evenly.

4) Place the carmel covered matza in the oven for about 10 minutes – keep an eye on it, because it can burn easily. It’s ready when you see the carmel bubbling.

5) Remove from the oven and place chocolate chips on top, the chips will soften, and you’ll be able to spread them out with a rubber spatula. If you decide you need to add more chocolate, but it’s getting cold, just pop it back in the oven for about 2 minutes.

6) Once the chocolate has melted and is spread out evenly, pour on the toppings! I broke mine up into sections, some had heath bar, some had almonds, a little had sea salt (Omg, sea salt + carmel = heaven) and some had coconut! This is one of those “grab everything delicious in your pantry”, since it’s sweet and salty, I’m sure you’ll find plenty of ideas.

7) Once you’ve got your toppings on, place the tray in the fridge for about 15 minutes, so it hardens.

8) Take it out of the fridge, and break it up into sections for everyone to share, and demolish.

SO easy right?! I hope you enjoyed it!

Life // Our Passover Sedar

Sugar and Type Passover
Happy Passover! Yesterday I shared my first ever DIY for passover! If you’re not sure what Passover is, you probably didn’t watch the Rugrats as a kid. But lets be serious, Passover is a jewish festival that commemorates the jews freedom from Egyptian slavery.  The festival lasts for seven days. In my parents house, these 7 days consist of delicious leftovers from our Sedar held on the first night. Monday night, my family gathered together at my parents house, and had a really nice Sedar. You’re supposed to drink 4 glasses of wine, and my family likes to sing covers, and play “Jewpardy”. There’s even a point where the “kids” (we’re NOT too old to play) look for the afikomen, which is a piece of matza hidden in the house, and it’s always a riot, we tear the house apart. Matza is unlevened bread (think crackers), and we eat this for the 7 days to remember the journey the jews went on when they left Egypt. They didn’t have time for the bread to rise, and so Matza was born. My families holidays are about delicious food, and spending time together, and we had a lot of fun. Look how fun our table turned out! I’m swooning over the black, gold and white china.I found the cups at a garage sale and bought all of them to match my mom’s China – she flipped! Her plates are all mismatch, they’re so fun. Sugar and Type Passover Sugar and Type PassoverSugar and Type Passover Sugar and Type Passover

If you haven’t tried Matza, try it covered in chocolate! I’ll be posting a delicious recipe soon! How fun is this depression glass my mom put her tulips in?
