How would you like to be among the first to set out on an all-new colorful adventure through the magical world of Candy Land? With fun, new lands to explore and fantastical characters to meet, Candy Land has been redesigned for an even sweeter experience.

Travel down the rainbow path on a journey of discovery through enchanted lands filled with sweet surprises around every corner. Create delicious treats at the Cupcake Commons to deliver along the way, participate in a thrilling snowboard race down the Ice Cream Slopes with the Duke of Swirl, take a relaxing train ride through Gummy Hills and climb to the top of Chocolate Mountain. Be sure to make friends with Gramma Gooey, Lord Licorice, Princess Frostine and Princess Lolly of Lollypop Woods throughout your adventure, as you race to meet King Kandy at the grand entrance to the Candy Castle.

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this game for our family to try from Hasbro and My Blog Spark. We played it today and it was just as much fun as the original!!! The game board has been completely re-done and there are new challenges and characters to the game. And here comes the great part!!! Hasbro and My Blog Spark want you to have the same kind of fun so they are ready to give one of you a new Candy Land game of your very own!!!!

All you need to do to win and let me know when you first played Candy Land? Make sure you leave a way to contact you and only 1 entry per person please. I hope you will find as much enjoyment in this game as our family did!! Perfect for family game nights!!!
Good luck and this will end

Sherpards Pie

This dish gets a bad rap from a lot of people. I am wondering if those of you who aren't fond of it, are that way because of the mashed potatoes on top. I've talked to my mom about this and that is her reason for disliking this dish. She likes the mashed potatoes, but it's something about mixing them with everything else. Not sure. Well I hope you try the way I make it and reconsider. BUt hey, if you just don't like it, then I can totally respect that. There are things out there that I feel the same way about.....

Easy Shepards Pie
  • 1 pound stewing beef that has been cut into small bite size chunks (or you could use ground hamburger, turkey sausage, etc)
  • 1 16oz bag frozen mixed veggies
  • 1 1/2-2C left over or freshly made mashed potatoes
  • bbq sauce of choice (will only need about half the bottle)
  • 3/4 C shredded cheddar cheese (optional for topping)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Brown off the meat but do not cook all the way through, It will finish cooking in the oven.
Add bbq sauce to liking and add the veggies (I added them right out of the bag-if you do this cut back on the amount of bbq sauce you use or it will result in a very runny pie).

Place all ingredients (except potatoes) into a casserole dish. Top with potatoes. Top with the cheese and then add some paprika for color.

Bake for about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Let sit for about 5 minutes before eating

Best served with biscuits but feel free to eat it with whatever your family likes!!

Don't you just love give a ways! I know I do!!! Here's another chance for you to win something!!! Read on!

Gathering the family around the dinner table to enjoy a home cooked meal is a great way to unwind, but there aren´t always enough hours in the day to prepare an entire meal from scratch.

To find a delicious side dish that´s easy to prepare and tastes homemade, look no further than Betty Crocker´s® Boxed Instant Mashed Potatoes, which are made with 100% real potatoes.

With a just-like-mom´s taste, Betty Crocker Boxed Instant Mashed Potatoes go from stovetop to table in just eight short minutes. Based on a scratch recipe, the Homestyle Creamy Butter variety will have your family thinking you spent hours in the kitchen the next time you serve up a hearty helping. If you prefer an extra kick of flavor, give the Roasted Garlic variety a try. And with two pouches in every box there´s plenty to go around.

Be sure to try the Au Gratin flavor variety, too! For more information, visit, and be sure to follow Betty Crocker on Twitter and "Like" the Facebook page to keep up with all of the latest news on your Betty Crocker favorites!

We are HUGE fans of mashed potatoes in this house and these tasted just like homemade to us. We really enjoyed the garlicy flavors the best but they were all fantastic!!!! Please go out and try them and judge for yourself!!! Really yummy!!!!! (My husband could eat them as a meal!!)

I am pleased to offer another wonderful pirze pack brought to you by the fab people at
Betty Crocker through MyBlogSpark.
