Marzetti and House Party.Fun

**House Party has a new name it is now #RippleStreet.com

On my last post I told you I was picked by Houseparty.FUN to be a host for #Marzetti dressing. This was my first party for Houseparty.fun and it was all new to me.  

Who and what is Houseparty.fun you ask?  I'll give it my best to tell you.

They are a company who picks you to host a home party.  But it's not your typical home party.  Nope, your not selling a thing.  All they want from you is your thoughts and feedback on the products/brands by their sponsor.  It starts with Houseparty.com sending you a party pack.

 The Party Pack 


Inside the Party Pack 

My party pack included from my sponsor Marzetti:  insulated  full-size grocery bags, packs of wonderful Marzetti recipes cards and $1.50 coupons for each of my guests. For the host they sent me eight coupons for free bottles of Marzetti dressings for my guests to sample.  Then they sent two Salad bowls, one for the host and one for a guest.  All this was in my party pack that was delivered ahead of my party.   

The Goodies 




I picked a fall harvest theme for mine, set up a salad bar with the Marzetti recipes on display for my guests to follow and sample the wonderful dressings.  We had a dessert bar and then we played a holiday game with the harvest-colored wrapped salad bowl. I handed out the Marzetti bags which I had embellished with a harvest-colored ribbon and tossed in two style ink pens.  It was full of non-stop laughter which started at three in the afternoon and did not end until quarter to seven.

All I had to do is host the party; and then fill out a survey that Houseparty.com sent to each of us. Talk about a no-pressure house party!  It was that simple. 

I can't wait to attend or host another houseparty.fun home party. I hope you take a minute to check them out.

Heirloom Confections - Sponge Candy

With Michigan getting hit with it's first major storm of the year, I thought it was a great time for some heirloom confections.  Yes, Sponge candy also known as Honeycomb candy, whichever name your family recipe was handed down by.  This is a sweet, crunchy, honeycomb-texture treat withhints of delicate toffee and molasses flavor. You can leave it plan or dress it up with chocolate which is what  my niece and I did for a Valentines day treat.  

You can find many recipes online or in your heirloom recipe books.  They only vary by dark or light corn syrup and white or dark brown sugar.  If you use the dark corn syrup or sugar you get a deeper toffee/molasses flavor. Whatever you choose this confection only has four ingredients and is super easy.

1 cup (white or brown) sugar 1 cup (light or dark) corn syrup 1 tablespoon Distilled white vinegar       1 tablespoon baking soda (Sifted)

Bunny Tail Treats

Since the first day of March I've had my nose pressed to the window looking for signs of spring. Alas, it's Michigan; we've had three days of snow.  Finally, my patience paid off.  I'm happy to report that our spring flowers are poking out of the ground with a few blooming in the sunshine now.  Our neighborhood wildlife is on the move and visiting our yard.  Among them are a few bunny families, which inspired me for these Bunny Tail Treats for Easter.

Another fall bake sale of sugar cookies and Frankenstein pretzel fingers for St. John's fall festival.
