October's Book Club: The Fault in our Stars

Last Wednesday our book club got together to discuss
The Fault in our Stars
by John Green.
This was such an amazing book, and we had so much fun discussing this book together.
One of my fellow bookies put together this month's treats.
It was absolutely magnificent.
She made homemade Stroop Waffles,
which I learned are a Dutch treat, in honor of the Amsterdam references within the book.
They were so good, and I'm hoping to make these in the future.

 A Stroop Waffle set right on top of a hot cup of coffee is perfect.
It melts the caramel in the center, and makes it soft and gooey.

If you've read the novel you will be familiar with the glasses of champagne.
It's not real champagne, it's ginger ale.
Don't worry Barnes and Noble, we're not bringing in alcohol.

 And I felt so honored that she used napkins that she had brought all the way from Amsterdam.
Isn't that neat?

And of course I had to make up some fun bookmarks.
There were so many great quotes in this books so I found a few I liked and used them.

The discussion questions we used this month can be found at,

Individual Frosting Dips

Cameron recently had her birthday.
She turned 4.
How did 4 years already go by?
So last week we took a treat to Cameron's school for her birthday.
We did this last year as well, but I did cupcakes.
And what a mess cupcakes are.
So I wanted to go a different route.
Something not as messy, and fun as well.
So we came up with individual frosting dips.
So easy, cheap, and fun for the kids to eat.

 The only necessary supplies are animal crackers, frosting (I used cream cheese frosting),
and sprinkles to add some extra fun.
Oh, and of course some small bags for the animal crackers,
and little cups for the frosting.
You could even do thematic sprinkles for different holidays.
So fun!

Monster Pops

Hey blogging world!
Today I thought I would share a treat that I made a few weeks ago.
I made these fun monster pops for my birthday celebration, 
per request of Cameron.

The Monster Pops are made out of rice krispies bars, chocolate melts, 
oreos, mini m&m's, and frosting for the mouths.
They were super fun to eat, and super rich as well.

Hope this inspires some monsterific treats.
