Logitech Keyboard and app image

I love tech gadgets, and what I love even more is a device that helps me connect all my tech devices together! That’s why I was excited to check out the Logitech Harmony Smart Wireless Keyboard. The Harmony Keyboard is not your ordinary keyboard! It actually consists of several separate pieces. The box includes the Smart Keyboard, two USB connectors, the Harmony Hub, an IR transmitter wire, power adapters and more!

logitech harmony keyboard

The Harmony Smart Keyboard helps make data entry easier for TV-connected Internet and home entertainment devices. Before we had the keyboard I had to hunt and peck for the letters with my Roku remote. It was slow tedious and time consuming! With the Logitech keyboard I can type in information just like I would on a regular keyboard! So much easier!

Logitech Keyboard front angle

Harmony Smart Keyboard makes watching and enjoying movie downloads, live streaming TV and movies, even watching You Tube on the TV right in our living room easier than ever! We’ve been using it for the last week or so with our Roku box. I have to say this is a really cool keyboard! It makes it so easy to enter text on internet-connected entertainment devices. All I have to do is touch the “Movie” Activity button walla! I’m in business! It also has integrated DVR and set-top box controls. I can even control playback and the volume from the Logitech.

I just followed the simple instructions to sync everything up, even my Android phone! It took a little while to set up, and I recommend reading through the entire instructions before you start. You can use the keyboard with your smart devices, like the Roku, Xbox360, Playstation 3, AppleTV, your PC, or MAC. We’ve been using the Logitec keyboard with our Roku box, but my son has an Xbox360 so I’m sure we’ll be trying it with that device soon!

I love the idea of this keyboard, and having all of our tech devices connected together, and so easy to operate with the touch of a few keys!
The Logitech Smart keyboard available now exclusively at Best Buy where it retails for $149.99.

Easter Nest Brownie Bites Recipe

I love all the super cute Easter nest ideas this time of year, and you all know I’m a big fan of brownie bites, so of course I had to combine them! Add  a little green icing and some Easter egg candies (like Hershey’s, or Jelly Beans) and you’ve got a super cute Easter or spring treat idea!

Easter Brownie bites

Easter Nest Brownie Bites Recipe
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 24
 
Ingredients
  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups butter cream icing
  • green food color
  • candy eggs like Hershey’s or Jelly Bean
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350`F.
  2. In a 3-quart saucepan, combine the semi-sweet chocolate and oil and heat over very low heat until melted. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. In a another mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs and vanilla until blended. Add in the chocolate mixture. The remaining dry ingredients should be slowly sifted in, and mix until combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into a mini cupcake pan sprayed with no stick cooking spray.
  5. Bake the brownie bites for about 15 minutes at 350?F, or until the batter just starts to pull away from the edges of the pan.
  6. Let the brownie bites cool for a few minutes in the pan, then gently press a chocolate covered cherry candy into the center of each.
  7. Let the brownies cool before you try to remove them from the pan.

I love these because they’re super easy to assemble! Once the cupcakes are baked, you just need to color the butter cream icing with green food color.

Add the icing to a pastry bag, with a Wilton 1M or another large star decorating tip attached to the end. Swirl the icing around from the inside out to make the nest.

Add a candy egg to the top of each nest and add them to your spring or Easter dessert table for a fun pop of color!.

Delicious Sunday Brunch Recipe Ideas

This is a sponsored opportunity with Foodie.com. As always, all opinions are my own.

I remember when I was growing up, we always went to my grandma’s house for Sunday brunch! We would get up in the morning on Sunday, go to church, then head over to grandma’s to spend the day! I remember hanging out and playing with my cousins, and some of my aunts who weren’t that much older than me, but I also remember the food! There was always a delicious smell coming from the kitchen while my grandma was cooking our Sunday meal.

Delicious sunday brunch recipes

I thought I’d put together a collection of recipes reminiscent of that Sunday brunch we used to have growing up. You can check out the whole collection at Foodie by clicking on the widget image below, or flip through and check out your favorite recipes right here:

I’ve included a couple egg casserole recipes. Egg casseroles were a staple for Sunday brunch when I was growing up, so I’ve included a couple that look and sound really delicious! I also have some French toast, and French toast bake recipes in my collection. Many of these recipes you can make ahead, or even the night before and just pop them in the oven about an hour before you’re ready to serve.

Of course I’ve also included some delicious recipes just to hit that sweet spot for dessert after Sunday brunch, including some muffins, cookies and our very own chocolate covered bacon cupcakes. You’ve got to have plenty of bacon for a brunch, right? Yum!

These recipes would be perfect for any Sunday brunch, but especially for Easter Sunday, which is coming up fast! Or maybe for a yummy Mother’s Day Sunday brunch in May? Or any other special occasion to get the family together on a Sunday morning!

Do you have a family Sunday brunch tradition?

Send Birthday Wishes With A Fun Video eCard from American Greetings

This post brought to you by eCards from American Greetings. All opinions are 100% mine.

My son's birthday is coming up in a few weeks! When he was younger he was a big fan of the cards that sing to you when you open them up. He's a teenager now, and he'll tell you he's too cool for that kind of thing these days, but deep down he's still a big kid at heart.  We've gone to Cancun the last couple years, so I thought the Slice Of Paradise card would be perfect for him! It was super easy to create the card. I just clicked on the one I wanted and put in the personalized info, like his name, my name, etc.

Then I clicked preview so I could check out the video ecard I created, and laughed my way through! This is so fun! Once I previewed it I hit send and we all watched the card together. We had so much fun bopping along with the coconuts and lemons. Hah! 

Video eCards are super cool because you can even send them on the day of the event via email, through Facebook, or direct to their phone via text message! If you almost forgot a friend or loved one's birthday they don't need to know, just slip into the American Greetings website and create your card. It's quick and easy, and you can craft the perfect personalized message. The best part is you can even attach a gift card to your American Greetings eCard. Check out this fun video eCard. 

American Greetings offers a 7 day trial membership, and 3 very affordable plans: $3.99 monthly, $19.99 for a yearly membership, or $29.99 for a year. 

Have you ever created your own video eCard? It doesn't even have to be a special occasion! You can craft an eCard just to let a friend or love done know you're thinking about them! You can Learn more at the American Greetings website.

You can also find out more information and check out cool card ideas if you like American Greetings on Facebook or follow American Greetings on Twitter

We cut out the mask on the back of the Twix.

New Spring and Summer Line at Dollar General

This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am so ready for spring! With spring, of course, comes warm weather, shorts, short sleeves and bright colors! This year I had a chance to check out the new spring line at Dollar General. I was in our local store today, and I found some really cute spring clothes that didn’t break the bank! Check out everything I got for just over $50!

I picked up a new workout outfit so I can get out and walk this spring. I love the pink and black! They also had this same outfit in green and black. I had a hard time deciding which one to pick. I may have to go back and pick up the other one!

I also picked up 2 super cute crinkle tops. One in white and one in yellow. I love the butterfly on the back of the white shirt! It’s fabulous!

Here it is close up in more detail. I love, love, love this shirt! I can’t wait to wear it in a couple weeks!

These two tops will look super cute this spring and summer layered with a light sweater or with a white tank underneath. I scored a pair of black capris that will go great with either of these tops. We’re heading to the beach for a week this summer, and these two tops will also work well as swimsuit cover ups!

The last piece I picked up was a little black summer dress. It will also go great by itself, or with the capris. This spring I can wear it with a light sweater, and it will be great for that trip to the beach as a swimsuit cover up, or even to wear out for an evening on the town.

Dollar General had some super cute clothes for kids including these adorable camouflage flip flops for little boys. I just wish my son’s feet were small enough to fit in them!

You can even shop apparel online and check out Dollar General’s spring and summer line.

Change Up Your Spring Decor With The @Kmart Semi Annual Home Sale

This is a sponsored post. I am a Kmart blogger, though all opinions are my own.

I love the promise of spring and change, and I also love to change up my home decor in the spring, even if it’s just small changes! Nothing livens up your household (and your spirit) like a newly decorated home. It makes everything feel fresh and new.

This spring, I’ve been hearing things like ‘grey is the new beige’, ‘blue is in’ and ‘light wood finishes are back.’ I don’t like to decorate my home with the latest trends, but I do like to keep it updated and fresh. Cue Kmart’s Semi Annual Home Sale! Winter has wreaked havoc on our house! It seems like we were stuck indoors for months! My house feels like this one: Take Back Your Home Video. Endless snow days this year and lingering holiday décor has kept the house in a bit of a turmoil. Now that spring is around the corner, it’s time for a change! What do you think? Are you ready for a change too? I think it’s time to take back your home!

At the Kmart Semi Annual Home Sale, you’ll find major savings on décor and furniture for your bed, bath, living room and kitchen. Like this double recliner I think will go perfect in my living room!

From bright colors to fresh finishes, you’ll save on everything you need to take your home from winter blues to stylish in spring. And with the points you’ll earn on redecorating, you’ll be able to redeem them on next season’s decorating trends (whatever they may be)!

You always leave cookies for Santa, but what about the Easter Bunny? Do you have an Easter Bunny snack mix to leave the Easter Bunny when he visits your house to leave Easter goodies?

  • 1 C. Annie’s Bunny Graham Snack Crackers

Instructions
  1. Combine the mini marshmallows, graham snack crackers, and the Jelly Beans and store in a large Ziploc type bag or airtight container for up to 2 weeks before Easter.
  2. When Easter comes take out your bunny snack mix and put it into a small decorative bowl or add them to silicone cupcake liners.
  3. Place them out on the night before Easter for the Easter Bunny to snack on while he’s hiding the eggs and Easter baskets.

This snack mix is yummy, so you might want to double or triple the recipe and hide some away to save it for the Easter Bunny! If it all gets eaten, that’s OK! It’s super easy to make more!
