Escape from the Isle of the Lost Summary

Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos may have once been the baddest of the bad, but their wicked ways are (mostly) behind them—and now graduation is almost here! But before the seniors can don their custom-designed caps and gowns, courtesy of Evie, they’ve got an epic plan to put into action.

There are tons of villain kids on the Isle of the Lost who are eager for their chance to come to Auradon Prep—even Celia, Dr. Facilier’s trickster daughter, wants in on the deal!—and Mal’s crew is using their upcoming visit to the Isle to help make it happen. But Auradon’s biggest threat is still at large… Trapped on the other side of the barrier, Uma is more desperate than ever to get her long-awaited revenge against Mal. When she discovers an underground lair belonging to Hades, god of the underworld, Uma realizes she’s found the perfect partner in crime. Together, they can defeat Mal, bring down the barrier, and escape the Isle for good. Mal and Uma have a score to settle, and they’ll come face to face in an explosive underwater battle that could determine the fates of Auradon and the Isle of the Lost once and for all.

Spoon several tablespoons of vanilla frosting into different small microwave safe bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring in each bowl to get your desired sea blue colors.

Microwave each bowl for about 30 seconds to heat the frosting for donut dipping.

Sherlock Gnomes Donuts and Juice

I’m a HUGE fan of garden gnomes and have just made the cutest Gnome Donuts to celebrate Sherlock Gnomes a fun, family friendly movie in theaters March 23. The trailer looks adorable and full of action, teamwork and adventure. What a perfect movie to see during spring break! I can’t wait to see this film since it inspired these fun, easy to make no-bake gnome donuts and juice! After sketching several ideas for gnome donuts, I feel like I know these movie characters inside and out. 

They’re on a mission to bring every gnome home. After a string of garden gnome disappearances in London, Gnomeo & Juliet look to legendary detective Sherlock Gnomes to solve the case of their missing friends and family.

Those tiny red gnomes in the movie poster are so cute! I couldn’t wait to turn them into donuts and especially excited to create an edible Juliet. She’s my favorite character for sure! I think they turned out ADORABLE. Wouldn’t these donuts be so cute for a woodland themed “Sherlock Gnomes” party?

I love creating fun food for parties! These small Sherlock Gnomes toys show you just how bite sized the donuts are, making them the perfect snack for kids. I added colorful drinks to the bottles to serve as their outfits, but you don’t have to serve these on small bottles. They would be just as fun all alone on a plate.

How to Make Sherlock Gnome Donuts

First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients. Scroll down and print the recipe for a list of all ingredients you will need. I used Glazed Hostess Donettes for the donuts and Reese’s Puffs cereal for the noses and ears.

Gnome Hats

Cut paper into about 3”-4” squares and shape into a funnel with the bottom a little bit larger than the width of the donut. Secure with tape and trim to fit.

 

Juliet

To make Juliet, add chocolate frosting to a decorating bag with a petal decorating tip attached. Pipe on Juliet’s hair. Stick two mini chocolate chips into the donuts sideways as eyes. The curvy tip should look like eye lashes. Add a tiny dot of white icing to a candy lip and place on the donut.

Gnomeo

Squeeze some white icing into a small bowl and add a few drops of yellow. Mix well. With a knife, add yellow icing onto a donut for his hair. Attach a piece of cereal with icing as his nose. Insert two mini chocolate chips for eyes. Pipe on his beard with white icing.

Cut the edges off of a piece of cereal to make his nose. Attach with icing. Insert two mini chocolate chips for eyes. Pipe on his beard with white icing. Add cereal ears and chocolate sideburns. For Sherlock’s hat, cut a curved portion out of the front of the hat and bend. Place on top of donuts.

An easy Dill Pickle Dip Recipe perfect for any party! If you love dill pickles, you will find this rich and creamy appetizer addicting.

The Best Dill Pickle Dip!

I could eat dill pickles all day, so this amazing dill pickle dip is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at a party. There is nothing better than my family’s homemade refrigerator dill pickles, but you don’t need to make your own pickles for this amazing dill pickle dip. Just get your favorite brand of dill pickles, mince some fresh dill and parsley then mix them all with a few more ingredients for the perfect dill pickle dip!

I personally love dipping crispy waffle potato chips into my dip, but you could also serve with your favorite vegetables for a healthier version. For this recipe, I used low fat ingredients to balance out the calories in the chips. Not that it really matters, because I would probably eat this entire plate of chips if it was in front of me!

Dill pickles and potato chips are seriously one of my all time favorite savory snacks together. This dill pickle dip brings both of my favorites together making it very hard to resist for sure!

How to Make Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix

Of course, you’ll need Chex Cereal! I’m so addicted to Wheat Chex that I always have some in the house.

How to Use Bacon Safely in Chex Mix

I used bacon seasoning in place of fresh bacon. Since bacon needs to be refrigerated, I didn’t want to chance my Chex Party Mix getting soggy in the refrigerator.

If you want to use fresh bacon in your recipe, be sure to eat the Brown Sugar Bacon Chex Party Mix within two hours after cooking the bacon.

Omit fresh bacon if giving as a gift or serving at parties where it will be out for hours. Any bacon flavored seasoning will work. I found some bacon and chives seasoning at my grocery store and it turned out fabulous!

I Love Chickens

My love of chickens started when I got my first pet chickens around the age of four. Here I am with Chicken Little and Chicken Big! I was SO EXCITED! ha!

Chicken and Baby Chick Cupcakes! Cute Birthday Cake Idea - Amy Locurto with chickens

Forget the pet dog, I was all about the pet chickens. Somewhere, there are photos of me swinging and sliding down my 1970’s swing set slide holding Chicken Little. ha!

Since I can’t have chickens now, I get my chicken fix and fresh eggs by visiting my Aunt Tricia in Oklahoma and her pet chickens! We love chickens so much, we even started a new Facebook page, Chickens are Fun. If you are a chicken fan–> click here to join the fun!

Combine my love of cute party food and chickens, and you have these adorable mama chicken and baby chicken cupcakes.

I asked Pamela to create these cute treats for us and think they turned out so adorable! I love the mama chicken, but the baby chick cupcakes made from mini cupcakes are my favorite. I hope you enjoy these fun party treats!

How to Make Chicken Cupcakes and Baby Chick Cupcakes!

These cute chicken cupcakes were made for a friend who raises backyard chickens. Her chickens lay the most beautiful eggs in shades of blue, green and brown, so I asked if I could trade her some fresh eggs for cupcakes. There was of course no hesitation!

How to Make Chicken and Baby Chick Cupcakes!

Here is what you need to get started:

  • Vanilla cupcakes, regular and mini sized
  • Buttercream frosting
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Toasted coconut
  • Chocolate chips, regular and mini sized
  • Fruit chew candies (Starbursts or something similar.)

How to Make Chicken and Baby Chick Cupcakes with coconut. Easy birthday cake ideas.

Bake a batch of regular sized cupcakes and mini cupcakes. We used a vanilla cake mix to save time, but if you want to make a fluffy white cake from scratch, try this–> white cake recipe.

After the cupcakes cool, frost your cupcakes with buttercream icing. Either make a batch of your own or buy a few cans of frosting. We used natural (non colored) vanilla colored buttercream for the regular sized cupcakes and light yellow colored frosting for the chicks. You might like this lemon frosting (it’s amazing!).

How to Decorate Chicken Cupcakes

While the frosting is “wet”, dip the sides of your cupcake into toasted coconut making sure to get all around the edges. Here is a simple tutorial on how to toast coconut yourself.

Fruit chews are the perfect candy to cut or mold with your hands to create orange and yellow beaks and red combs. Use regular and mini semi sweet chocolate chips for the eyes.
