Granddaddy's Garlic Lovers Clam Dip Recipe

One of my absolute favorite family recipes is my Granddaddy's clam dip.  We had it at most family get-togethers while I was growing up, and he and my Grandma always made sure to make a double batch if they knew I was going to be there (with a special portion just for me to take home).  This rich and creamy clam dip is a garlic lover's dream.  We always joked that no one would notice your garlic breath if everyone was eating the dip.  It must have been unfortunate for the one person at the party who didn't like garlic, because they would have to endure the garlic breath of everyone else!


Caramel Coffee Popsicles Recipe

As you all know through my #DinnerTonight posts on social media and my recipe round-up blog posts, I love to curate and share the best tried-and-true recipes that I find with my readers and followers.  However, this past year I have been experimenting more with original recipe development (like my Mexican Hash recipe, and others that I have shared recently).  And while a lot of the recipes I have been developing have been family-focused, I don’t want to leave the adults out of the fun.  With the heat rising here in Central Texas as we approach summer, kids aren’t the only ones who crave sweet, frozen treats!
Since coffee is life (and since Fab Everyday readers are busy people that may not be able to function without it), lately I have been trying to think of ways to play with coffee differently.  I was recently inspired by this Iced Coffee Popsicle recipe from The Black Peppercorn, and thought, how can I make something fun and summery with coffee that would also provide that much-needed caffeine kick?
There are a lot of coffee and mocha popsicle recipes out there, but I wanted to think of something different.  My love for the flavor of rich espresso coffee and salted caramel converged for the idea of making caramel coffee popsicles. 


Comparing Kia's Eco-Dynamic Cars for My Next Vehicle

Disclosure: I was hosted by Kia for a media trip to learn about their line of eco-dynamic vehicles.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  I was not financially compensated for this post.

I was recently invited by Kia Motors, along with some other digital influencers, to attend an experience to get to know the Kia brand and their fleet of eco-dynamic vehicles.  The timing of this trip was pretty ideal as I will be in the market for a new car, myself, later this year.  I have also been considering a more ecologically-conscious choice for my next vehicle, so I was eager to learn more about different options and the latest in eco-dynamic technology for vehicles.  Today, I am going to share my experience with you and this will kick off my journey to finding my next vehicle.


Birthday Party Ideas for Boys

First, I want to say that these birthday part ideas are not just for boys.  I believe that there is no such thing as "a girl thing" or "a boy thing," as all kids can like whatever kinds of toys, themes, movies, etc. that they want.  That being said, in full disclosure, I am titling this post "birthday party ideas for boys" to help people find these ideas if they did a Google or Pinterest search for birthday party theme inspiration for the little boys in their lives. 

Here are some of the fun birthday party themes I have done for my two sons over the years.  I hope you find some inspiration!
