I LOVE the Holiday Season! The smells…the sounds…the love. Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite Holidays that I cherish memories I have with family members who are no longer with me. With my Mom (who passed when I was 17) it is the baking. Boy did we bake lots of cookies and our house smelled amazing! With my Dad (who passed when I was 16) it was spending Christmas Eve hanging out with family and enjoying our churches Candle Light Service. Lastly with my grandpa (who passes just a few years ago) the music. I still can hear his voice singing songs.
When my Holiday Kit from Febreze that contained the Febreze Home For The Holidays Collection came I was excited as well as my son. I can not wait to put the plug ins in our house and bring back some of those scents that remind me of my holiday memories! My son can not wait to play with the Holiday House! He had a ton of fun with the fall kit!
We are going to try the Mini Apple Tarts from the recipe box in our kit. These look super simple to make and even better.. they look fantastic to eat!
Mini Apple Tarts
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2 tablespoons flour
- a pinch of salt
- 4 apples, diced
- 16 wonton wrappers
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Whisk the water, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, flour, and salt in a pot over medium heat.
- Add the apples and stir until the liquid starts to boil and thicken. Set the heat to low and cook, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes until the apples soften.
- Press the wonton wrappers into a greased mini-muffin pan. You can sprinkle with cinnamon sugar if you’d like sweeter tarts.
- Scoop the apple mixture into the wontons and bake for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!
- 2-3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (can be frozen)
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 1 jar salsa
- Place chicken in crock pot.
- Sprinkle taco seasoning on top of chicken.
- Pour salsa over top.
- Cover and cook on Low until the chicken shreds easily with a fork, about 6-8 hours.
- When the chicken is cooked, remove from slow cooker, shred with two forks and return to salsa mixture.
- Serve with flour tortillas, cheese, lettuce, sour cream and black olives.

- A colander
- 10 hard-boiled white eggs
- 1/2 cup of white vinegar
- Vibrant food coloring (we used McCormick Neon Food Coloring)
- Place several hard-boiled eggs in a colander in the kitchen sink and splash them with the vinegar.
- Drip yellow food coloring on the eggs.
- Gently agitate the colander for a few seconds to help the color spread. Let the color set on the eggs for 30 seconds.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 with up to two shades (any more and your colors may get muddy), allowing each to set for 30 seconds.
- After the last color has set, give the eggs a light rinse with water and let them drain for a minute or two. Air-dry them on paper towels.
