DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD is out on Digital now and on Blu-ray 11/19 #Giveaway #doratheexplorer #doraandthelostcityofgold

Explore a new world of family-friendly adventure when DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD out now on Digital  and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand November 19 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
 
The Digital* and Blu-ray releases boast a wealth of fun-filled bonus features, including hilarious bloopers, deleted and extended scenes, a look at Isabela Moner’s transformation into Dora,  a tour of Dora’s Jungle House, and more!  Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD is the perfect film to enjoy over Thanksgiving and “a treasure for the whole family” (Greg Russell, NBC Detroit).
Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner, Instant Family) for her biggest challenge yet – high school. When her parents mysteriously disappear while searching for the Lost City of Gold, Dora must swing into action and lead a group of ill-equipped high schoolers on a wild quest to save them. Hold on for a high stakes mission as Dora and her new friends navigate the jungle, outrun treasure hunters, and solve ancient puzzles to unlock the mystery of the fabled city.
DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD also stars Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria, and Danny Trejo.


My kids grew up watching Dora and Diego, so this was a must for family movie night.  It brought back so many memories from their childhood! It has so much humor and at times makes fun of the cartoon.   Totally funny when Dora looks into the camera and says "can you say...", just like in the cartoon!

It has such a great message for kids, it is okay to be different, to stand out...you shouldn't have to change to fit in.  My kids are 14 and 12 and enjoyed the movie as well.  It is a nice wholesome family film, whether you are a fan of the cartoon or looking for a fun movie for family movie night, then this is it!


Check out these fun activity sheets:

Use that leftover Candy Corn to make Homemade Butterfingers (3 ingredients)


Every year after Halloween there is always an abundance of candy corn on clearance.  This past year I picked up a number of bags to try my hand at making three ingredient butterfingers!   These are relatively easy to make and taste so good.  I actually prefer them to the real butterfingers!    Even if you did not stock up like I did on candy corn, you can still buy it online and at bulk stores!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • chocolate almond bark or chocolate chips for covering.
Instructions:
  1. Melt candy corn  on the stove top on low heat (constantly store so it doesn't scorch the pan).
      
  2. Add the peanut butter  and continuously mix together until it becomes thick and difficult to mix.  Will almost look like play dough.
      
  3. Place mixture on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.   I pressed it into the pan so it was about  1/4 inch think.
  4. I then took a pizza cutter or knife and cut it into the desired shape.  Let it cool and harden.
  5. Melt your chocolate once the mixture is cooled.  I melt mine in a mini crock pot, so it stays hot and is easy to dip. Dip each piece in chocolate, and set it on wax paper to set.

Pumpkin Roll Bars #recipe


I made these bars this past week and they were a hit. I looked a few pumpkin roll and bar recipes and came up with this one!

Pumpkin Cake
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin
1/4 cup water
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tspground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Cream Cheese Filling
12 ounces cream cheese ( 1 1/2 bricks), softened
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg

Directions for cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. I used a glass baking dish. 
  2. In your KitchenAid mixer, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, pumpkin, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and water until well blended. 
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; slowly add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix until well blended. 
  4. Spread about 2/3 of the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Reserve 1/3 for top.
Directions for cream cheese filling:
  1. In your KitchenAid mixer beat cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. 
  2. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over the pumpkin batter. 
  3. Pour the remaining pumpkin batter over the cream cheese batter and spread out as evenly with spatula.
  4. Use a table knife to swirl together the cream cheese and top layer of pumpkin batter. 
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the center of the pumpkin batter springs back when touched. 
  6. Cool completely in pan. Chill and cut into bars.  Best if served cold
  7. . I placed in my garage since it is so cold and they were chilled.
