It’s a big week in our house! We are very excitedly gearing up for the October 2nd Blu-Ray/DVD release of Avengers: Age of UltronThat’s right, we are a family that lets our Marvel comics geek flag fly, and fly high. Luckily, I was born to a father who knew how to raise a child right. He routinely took us to the comic book store and shared his collection with us. Now I get to share the same thing with my kids.

In honor of the upcoming October 2nd Blu-Ray/DVD release of Avengers: Age of Ultron I decided that we needed to get some movie snacks in place and costumes to wear that were worthy of the greatness of the movie. Enter my edible Thor hammers and the Vision’s Protein Power Smoothie. Good for you snacks that are better than candy any day. 

So to make all of this happen I headed to my local Walmart store and stocked up on MARVEL Avengers string cheese, MARVEL Avengers grapes and MARVEL chewy granola bars in the grocery section.

Then I took a walk to the other side of the store and snagged the kids some fun Halloween costumes to wear on family movie night this weekend.That’s right, be jealous because I will be watching my Blu-ray copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron with not only the Hulk but Thor  and Captain America too.

If any of you have seen the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie at the theaters then you know that Vision can do something that nobody but Thor can do. That’s why I decided to pair Thor’s hammer in snack form with a power packed protein smoothie that kids will love!

To make the hammers I simply paired Marvel Avengers chewy granola bars with MARVEL Avengers string cheese. Placing a toothpick through the middle, lengthwise of the string cheese and then through the narrow end of a granola bar half is all you need to make these everyday snacks into something fun.

The smoothies are packed with flavors kids love with an added bump of protein to keep their energy going so they can be superheroes too.

So what do the movie snacks look like finished? Well, take a look…

Southern Comfort Cocktail a Real Crowd Pleaser

ABC Family's Young & Hungry Food Blogger Challenge

On Sunday, Father’s Day, we received our second challenge in the Young & Hungry Food Bloggers Challenge. We needed to make a video for a recipe inspired by a dad in our lives. I was a little late in getting mine up and entered for voting but that’s because I was on vacation with the two most important dads in my life, my father and my husband. We did a huge family vacation at my parent’s vacation house in Wisconsin Dells with my parents, siblings and our kids. It was nice having everyone together. My dad took all the guys out for drinks to celebrate Father’s Day and that is what gave me the idea for Challenge #2 and I am so happy with the inspiration because it lead me to create this Southern Comfort Cocktail.

Southern Comfort Cocktail #YoungAndHungry

On our way home from Wisconsin we stopped at a large strawberry farm and took the kids strawberry picking so I had a huge heap of fresh, sweet and tasty strawberries. I knew these would be perfect to add into my cocktail. I also wanted to make it a bit citrusy so that it gave you the feel of a nice cool refreshing drink on a hot day but with a kick to it. I decided to go with Southern Comfort as the alcohol to the cocktail because my husband is a whiskey fan but my dad drinks only when we all get together so he can be a bit of a light weight. Southern Comfort is perfect since it is a whiskey based liqueur. All in all I love the way it came out. The fruit and juices help to cut the whiskey flavor some but there is enough whiskey for the drink to pack a punch. I also like that you can make this drink by the pitcher to share with your family and friends at your next get together.

ABC Family's Young & Hungry Food Blogger Challenge

 

In “Young & Hungry,” two worlds collide when Josh (Jonathan Sadowski Sadowski), a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Emily Osment), a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh’s aide ( Rex Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position. With the help of her best friend Sofia (Aimee Carrero) and Josh’s housekeeper (Kym Whitley), Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love.

Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment (Hannah Montana), Jonathan Sadowski ($#*! My Dad Says), Rex Lee (“Entourage”), Aimee Carrero (“Blue Lagoon: The Awakening”) and Kym Whitley (“Animal Practice”) with Annie Potts (“GCB,” “Designing Women”) as a recurring guest star. The series is executive produced by Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum (“Two and a Half Men”), CBS Television Studios, Relativity Television, Jessica Rhoades (“Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure”) and Ashley Tisdale (“High School Musical”). The pilot was written by David Holden (“Accidentally on Purpose”). Gabi Moskowitz, a San Francisco based food blogger, of BrokeAssGourmet.com, contributed to the development of this project.

Young & Hungry premieres on ABC Family on Wednesday, June 25th, at 8/7 p.m. CST
