Sprinkled Sunshine


March Madness

Hi all!

If you are reading this, then you probably saw a post from me somewhere inviting you to fill out a bracket for March Madness.  There was a time when I watched college basketball regularily, but that has dwindled down over the years.  That does not mean I don’t still enjoy it  when I have the time, ESPECIALLY during March Madness!

So, if you are interested in joining a pool, I created a pool titled Sprinkled Sunshine for fun through CBS Sports and anyone is welcome to request to join as well as participate in the small contest that I’m running alongside it, provided you meet the following:

  • You live in the United States
  • You are over the age of 18
  • You submit your bracket selections on http://www.cbssports.com for the Sprinkled Sunshine pool by 10 AM CST on March 15, 2018

Provided you meet the above requirements, at NO PURCHASE necessary to you, you will be entered into my small contest that I’m running simultaneously with the tournament.  The winner of the Sprinkled Sunshine pool will receive a boutique style game day shirt.

You will be contacted within 15 days of the completion of the tournament to confirm desired size and mailing address. You will receive the shirt within a month from confirming information with me.

How do you get in the pool?  There are 2 options:

  1. Like the March Madness instagram post on the Sprinkled Sunshine instagram account and direct message me your email address.  Comment “done” on the post once you have done so.  If you are comfortable leaving your email address with your comment rather than direct messaging that is fine too.  OR
  2. Contact me through this blog page (there is a contact option at the top of the home page) with your email address and comment “done” on this blog post.

Once you have completed one of the above options, you will receive an email invitation from me to join the pool and submit your bracket.  Note: One of the above options must be completed by 8AM CST on the 15th to allow time for me to email you an invite.

Please also note that my mini contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered, or associated with Instagram and by entering you agree to release Instagram.

That’s it folks!  Let me know if you have any questions and let the madness begin!

Somebunny Loves You

Yep, I do have 2 affiliate links in this post to show you where you can purchase items which means if you decide to click on them I will get a small commission at no charge to you.  Glad we got that outta the way :-).

Silicon baking molds have quickly become a favorite in our house.  In February it was a mini heart conversation mold (see more about that here) and now that it is March we’re naturally using a mini bunny mold. I’m not sure what it will be for April, but I’m sure I’ll think of something!  My mother-in-law gave me my first set of larger hearts and stars a couple of years ago and we’ve been hooked since.  We make almost all of our muffins in them.  They come clean so much easier than a regular pan which maybe is something only a sloppy baker like me has issues with?  Anyway, we love them…I mean look how cute they turn out!  Cute coffee mugs are a favorite here too!

Easter Bunny Blueberry Muffins

So, when we made these we were out of eggs…again.  We go through eggs in record time, I’m the main culprit.  That being said, I wasn’t specifically looking for a vegan recipe but that is what I started with.  Check out the Wacky Blueberry Muffins (Naturally Vegan) recipe from Go Dairy Free and if you wanna be like us, add a little bit of honey (but not if you are Vegan!) and vanilla to the mix.

Bunny Baking Mold My helpers :-). They get so excited to help me in the kitchen and I’m holdin’ onto that as long as I can!  Little boys sure have a special place in their momma’s heart.

Looked away for a second and one of my little helpers got a little ambitious on his own. He looked at me and said “Sa, Sa” = sorry :).

He’s also the one that kept sneaking the “bad muffins.”  Note how earlier I said I was a sloppy baker -I totally overflowed these molds but it was easily fixable in the end, just shaved the extra muffin tops off with a knife and you can’t even tell.
