Woof Yeah – Pup-Peroni is helping me share the deliciousness of tailgate season with my pooch! #woofyeah @Pup-Peroni #ad

The air is crisp, the pigskin is getting tossed around, and the grill’s getting fired up! For me, there’s no better feeling than grilling tender, juicy steaks for my buds during a football game. The succulent smell’s got my belly grumbling and my pooch’s tail wagging! 
Seeing as how he’s one of my best buds, I wanted to find a way to celebrate the deliciousness of meaty grilled filet mignon and bacon with my favorite four-legged friend.  
So we picked up Pup-Peroni's new Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavors treats and brought them to the tailgate party for our pooch. And I’m glad we did – you should have seen their reaction. They could barely contain themselves as they wagged, jumped and yelped all at the same time. These treats had us high-fiving in no time!  
Pup-Peroni treats are no joke - they're made with delicious real angus steak and bacon flavors that our dog absolutely loves. Plus the soft, chewy texture gets their tail wagging! I think I enjoy giving my girls these Filet Mignon & Bacon Flavors treats as much as they loves eating them! There’s nothing like sharing my favorite part of football season with my best friend. Woof Yeah!
No matter how you celebrate your "tail"-gate this season, you and your pooch will be saying ‘woof yeah’ to the tasty flavor of Pup-Peroni Filet Mignon & Bacon treats! Check out this fun ‘Woof Yeah’ video to see what your pup is really craving. 

Have you had the chance to share the satisfying moment of undeniable deliciousness with your pooch? Has it resulted in a high five like it has between my pooch and me? I hope so!

Homemade Elliott from ET #Halloween Costume #ETPhoneHome #Elliott

We like to make homemade Halloween costumes every year and this year my son will be Elliott from ET! It is a pretty simple costume to make and looks amazing! You will need the following items:
  • Red Hooded Shirt 
  • Bike Handlebars
  • Wire basket or plastic milk crate
  • White sheet or towel
  • Plush ET toy
  • Zip Ties
  • Bungee cord
First off we zip tied ET to the metal basket.  Then we took old bike handle bars and zip tied it to the basket.  Wrap a sheet, blanket, towel around ET to keep him hidden.  Attach a bungee cord around the basket and place it over your head.  This way it hangs nicely in front of you!

Pumpkin Inspired Graham Cracker & Peanut Butter Pops #Recipe #Halloween

These graham cracker pops are adorable to present for the Fall season and are incredibly easy to make!  They are perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving or any Fall get together!

Graham Cracker & Peanut Butter Pops

  • 1-1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 to 12 standard-sized crackers)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (about half a cup)
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1.5 cups orange candy melts
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Lollipop sticks
  • ¼ cup melted chocolate
  • Green icing
Yields: 15 to 20 1-inch pops

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, cream cheese and peanut butter. Mix until you achieve a fairly sticky consistency. If you feel like your mixture is still too dry, continue adding peanut butter, one tablespoon at a time.
  2. Roll graham cracker mixture into one-inch balls and place on your lined baking sheet.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave your candy melts for about 30 seconds. Stir in coconut oil and microwave for another 30 seconds.
  4. With the help of a fork, dip and coat your graham cracker balls in the melted candy. Let them set on your lined baking sheet.
  5. Place a lollipop stick into each graham cracker ball. With the help of another lollipop stick (or a toothpick), carefully dab on some melted chocolate at the end of the lollipop stick (the end that meets that graham cracker treat).
  6. Using a piping bag, pipe green icing on top, giving them a “swirly” shape – these will act as your pumpkins’ leaves.
  7. Place in the refrigerator until set (about 20 to 30 minutes). Enjoy!

PBS to Air Anne of Green Gables Starring Martin Sheen on Thanksgiving Day

The classic Lucy Maud Montgomery story of a young girl’s life on Prince Edward Island, L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES (watch clip here), will air on Thanksgiving night, Thursday, November 24, 2016, at 8:00 p.m. ET (check local listings).  Following the two-hour revival the same night is POLLYANNA, the film version of the 1913 best-selling novel by Eleanor H. Porter.
“We are excited to bring both ANNE OF GREEN GABLES and POLLYANNA to our viewers on Thanksgiving evening,” said Beth Hoppe, Chief Programming Executive and General Manager of General Audience Programming, PBS. “These two films are great examples of the quality, family-friendly programming PBS strives to provide during the holiday season and all year long.”

L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES tells the story of Anne Shirley, a precocious young girl taken from an orphanage and placed in the care of the uptight Marilla Cuthbert and her brother, Matthew. The conservative Marilla has a profound effect on the adventurous Anne and creates a journey of learning and personal engagement that has resonated with generations since L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908. The book remains an iconic work of Canadian literature and has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.
Directed by John Kent Harrison and based on the original script by Susan Coyne, this adaptation, filmed in Canada, stars critically acclaimed actor Martin Sheen. Sheen – who has appeared in blockbuster films such as The Amazing Spider Man and The Amazing Spider Man 2, and played the President of the United States in the multi-Emmy winning series “The West Wing” –portrays Matthew Cuthbert, one half of the brother-sister couple who care for Anne Shirley.
Additional cast members of L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES include 14-year old Ella Ballentine (The Captive) as Anne Shirley, Sara Botsford (“E.N.G.”) as Marilla Cuthbert, Julia Lalonde (“Catch a Christmas Star”) as Diana Barry, Kate Hennig (“Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould”) as Rachel Lynde, Stefani Kimber (Remember) as Josie Pye, Drew Haytaoglu (“Looks Just Like the Sun) as Gilbert Blythe, Kyle Gatehouse (Source Code) as Mr. Phillips and Linda Kash (Cinderella Man) as Mrs. Barry.
L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES will be available on DVD from PBS Distribution: ShopPBS.org; 800-PLAY-PBS, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The film will also be available for digital download.

L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES was produced by Breakthrough Entertainment in association with Corus Entertainment’s YTV and the author’s granddaughter, Kate Macdonald Butler, who served as executive producer.

PBS’ Thanksgiving programming also includes POLLYANNA, which tells the story of a girl who moves in with her embittered aunt after her father passes away. Soon, she charms everyone in the village she now calls home – all except her cold-hearted aunt who, despite her vast wealth, refuses to see the brighter side of life. Aunt Polly treats Pollyanna more like a stranger than a relative. When tragedy strikes, Pollyanna’s sunny outlook induces her aunt to confront the past and embrace the promise of happiness. POLLYANNA premieres Thanksgiving night, Thursday, November 24, 2016, at 9:30 p.m. ET (check local listings) on PBS.

Mitch Albom's The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto: A Novel is #Free for your #Kindle!

Score the newest book from Mitch Albom for free!  The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto: A Novel Kindle Edition 
 Print List Price: $25.99
Kindle Prince: $0.00 
Mitch Albom creates his most unforgettable fictional character—Frankie Presto, the greatest guitarist to ever walk the earth—in this magical novel about the bands we join in life and the power of talent to change our lives.

In his most stunning novel yet, the voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, young Frankie Presto, a war orphan raised by a blind music teacher in a small Spanish town. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to Amer
ica in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six precious strings.
But Frankie’s talent is touched by the gods, and his amazing journey weaves him through the musical landscape of the 20th century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll, with his stunning talent affecting numerous stars along the way, including Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Carole King, Wynton Marsalis and even KISS.

Frankie becomes a pop star himself. He makes records. He is adored. But his gift is also his burden, as he realizes, through his music, he can actually affect people’s futures—with one string turning blue whenever a life is altered.

At the height of his popularity, Frankie Presto vanishes. His legend grows. Only decades later, does he reappear—just before his spectacular death—to change one last life.
