Feel the Fun Texture Game #Giveaway Ends 4/1 #SMGN

This is a giveaway that really speaks to my Montessori background. You are using the stereognostic sense to determine the textures hidden within the bin. This means you’re using your whole hand and even arms, not just your fingertips, to determine what some of the objects are. It’s similar to the Montessori Mystery Bag. And it’s a lot of fun to play with kids. My friends’ son has a version of this and we still play it even though he is seven. 

So keep on reading to find out more about the game. Read the review from Michigan Savings and More. And then you can enter the giveaway below. Best of luck entering and thanks for stopping by!

2 Easy No Bake Tropical Fruit Pie Recipes

A tropical fruit pie may be just the thing you need to satisfy that craving for something sweet as you dream of warmer days and sitting along the beach or poolside. I have to admit that I would also love a little adult beverage with an umbrella in it while I having these dreams, but a good dessert would suffice. And can’t we say they are relatively healthy because you’re getting your vitamin C and all of those antioxidants in the pineapple?

What’s best about these tropical pie recipes is that they are super easy to make. They don’t require a lot of prep work. You just need to buy a graham cracker crust (unless you’re going to make your own). The ingredients are just stirred together and poured into the crust. No baking required! The beauty comes when you pull them out of the refrigerator, slice them up, and then garnish them.

No Bake Tropical Pudding Pie


  • 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple with juice
  • 8 ounce can of sliced pineapple, drained
  • 1 package of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 8 ounce container of sour cream
  • 3 Tablespoons of sweetened coconut
  • 8 Maraschino cherries
  • 1 graham cracker crust


Pour the crushed pineapple and its juice into a large bowl. Add the sour cream and the dry vanilla pudding mix. Blend with a spoon and pour into the graham cracker crust. Top with sliced pineapple, cherries and coconut. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

No Bake Whipped Tropical Pie


  • 1 large container of whipped topping
  • 15 ounces of crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup of sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ cup of lemon juice
  • 1 cup of chopped pecans
  • 2 graham cracker crusts
  • 16 maraschino cherries with stems


Starting with the whipped topping, mix the ingredients together, stirring to blend. Pour into the two graham cracker crusts and refrigerate until ready to serve. Slice and sprinkle each piece with a few pecans and a cherry.

Homemade Salsa Verde Recipe

A fresh batch of salsa verde is the perfect accompaniment to all kinds of meals from breakfast to dinner, from eggs to enchiladas or chicken. Stir it into your soup or chili for a flavorful kick or serve it as a dipping sauce with tortilla chips. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination and this salsa verde recipe is quick and easy to make. It’s done in well under an hour and this batch is enough for about four to six people. Double or triple as needed! You can also put the extra in the freezer for later, but I doubt you’ll have a lot of leftovers.

(I do have a couple of affiliate links in here for products that I think you’ll find useful as you’re preparing your salsa verde. If you make a purchase through one of these links, I may earn a small commission to help me earn a few pennies toward supporting my websites, at no extra cost to you.)

What is salsa verde?

You’re probably most familiar with a more “traditional” salsa, which is usually red in color thanks to its tomato base. It can range in heat from a mild to a spicy flavor. Verde is Spanish for green. As you can see, most of the ingredients in this recipe are also green in color. The base is tomatillos.

Ingredients for salsa verde:

Salsa verde is quick and easy to make with these fresh ingredients.

You should be able to easily find all of these ingredients at your local grocery store. When the weather permits, though, I highly recommend checking out your local farmers markets to get the freshest and tastiest ingredients. Or you can even grow them in your own garden! You’ll need the following:

  • 1 lb tomatillos
  • 2 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 3-4 cloves fresh garlic, peeled
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 c fresh cilantro leaves (Use less if you have the “soap gene,” of course.)
  • 1/4 c fresh lime juice
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 T. honey (optional)
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

How to make salsa verde:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat.
  3. Husk the tomatillos and cut them in half.
  4. Arrange the halved tomatillos in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, along with the whole jalapeno peppers and garlic cloves. Drizzle them with olive oil and gently toss to coat.
  5. Place the baking sheet of vegetables in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are tender. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for several minutes.
  6. Once cooled, cut the jalapenos in half and remove all of the seeds.
  7. Transfer the roasted vegetables to a blender or food processor.
  8. Add green onions, cilantro, lime juice, ground cumin, and oregano. Pulse the ingredients until they are combined, but keep the mixture somewhat chunky.
  9. Add honey for sweetening if needed. Salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve immediately or freeze for later.
