Cooking Camps, Afternoon Tea & Super Bowl Snacks!

In my house, we only watch the Super Bowl for the commercials and we always make sure there are a ton of delicious snacks surrounding us. While it’s going to be hard for me to part with the warm temps and beautiful beaches here in Jamaica, it will be nice to curl up on my own couch. Distance makes the heart grow fonder! If you’re looking for something fun to do before the Super Bowl, the afternoon tea at Vanille is high on my list, but I’m also super pumped to hear about cooking camp at Whole Foods – Zelda will love this!

Mark your calendars for the Cupid Dance at Kidville next weekend, it’s the perfect way to get your littles in the Valentine’s Day spirit. If you’re heading south, Houston has the most adorable ice skating rink (without the frigid temps) and they have a killer lunar new year’s celebration. What is your family doing this weekend? Tell me in the comments below.

Whip Up Super Bowl Snacks: If your crew loves food and football but has no interest in dealing with the craziness at restaurants, have your own party! We’re craving mini pizzas, Crock Pot tacos, pico de gallo, veggie chips and stuffed cobb salad burger sliders.
