This post is an entry into the Golden Girl Granola Blogger challenge and I was given a free bag of granola for this recipe.
Last year I participated in the Golden Girl Granola recipe challenge and couldn’t wait to enter again this year! Not only is their granola yummy but I knew this recipe would knock their socks off. Golden Girl Granola began by making small batches of granola and selling it at their local farmers market which I can appreciate since we have been working our local farmers market this summer.
A little about their granola from their website:
– is whole-grain and healthful
– uses the finest, all-natural ingredients
– is locally-produced, with locally-sourced ingredients, whenever possible
– is wheat-free, and is produced in a gluten-free kitchen
– is non-GMO
– is hand-crafted in small, artisan batches with the utmost care
– is beyond delicious!
These easy granola lemon squares start off with one of my favorite recipes. The oatmeal square base is so good, it tastes like one giant cookie! Then top that with some lemon-y goodness and powdered sugar and throw in some blueberries and you got yourself a tasty treat.
Then you need to grab all the ingredients for the granola base and throw it into a big bowl and mix. Then spread it into a 13X9 greased pan.
Next stir together all the ingredients for the lemon layer in a bowl and pour over the oatmeal base.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the top is light brown.
Cover with powdered sugar and fresh blueberries and cut into squares.
This recipe is really easy to put together and you can have it in the oven in under 10 minutes.

I was at a camp for my kids all weekend and when we returning on Sunday morning, the last thing I wanted to do was think about cooking. We got an invitation to try out the Superhero Sunday lunch at the Melting Pot and Littleton. I could not have been more excited. We had never visited this place before plus I was too exhausted to think about cooking.
I thought of this place as more of a date night for my husband. I was so excited they were offering something where we could bring the kids. From the moment we arrived, we had non-stop fun. I was a little nervous since we have 4 kids and if they would get antsy staying for the entire event. But the staff did such a fantastic job on keeping them entertained and having fun things for them to do.
I will admit at one point the whole entire family was involved in a congo line and my kids even did the limbo.
Next week they are doing Fondue Fairytales. Then the next week will be Superhero Sunday again.
Here is the schedule below on those events.
When you come to either events, you dress up too. The only one we could talk into dressing up was our 2-year-old. He was in Superhero mode the entire time. I was so impressed with Wonder Woman and Spiderman who were the Superheros for the day. They signed autographs for our kids, talked to them, danced with them and took pictures. They could not have been sweeter. I really think the whole staff went above and beyond for us.
Reservations are encouraged since while we were there the whole place was packed. So check out their website here!
The Melting Pot is the original fondue restaurant where guests can enjoy several fondue cooking styles and a variety of unique entrees, salads, and unforgettable desserts. But they are more than just a restaurant; they are a unique destination offering a dining experience unlike any other. Our fondue restaurant is perfect for the everyday occasion, from a night out with friends or a romantic dinner with your special someone to a promotion celebration with colleagues.
The Melting Pot Littleton presents Superhero Sundays SHAZAM! Calling all Superheroes…bring your little hero or heroine to The Melting Pot for Superhero Sundays on their powerful patio. So get your super powers ready and join in the fun! Dress up as your favorite superhero and enjoy a 4-course fondue meal with other mighty crime fighters. Adults: $35 , Kids (4-12): $14.95, Wee-ones 3 and under: Free
Reservations Required and taken from 11:00 am until 2:30 pm. Book yours TODAY for Sunday reservation!
Of course one of the kids’ favorite part of the day was dessert time. We ordered white and dark chocolate for our table and the kids couldn’t get enough. Neither could I.
The Oreo covered marshmallows was Superman’s favorite for sure.
And this might be my favorite picture from the day. This little dude could not have had a better time!
I received a pair of shoes for this review from The Friendly Rooster but all opinions are my own.
My sister came to visit us last week. We laughed talking about how she has a son 1 week younger than mine and her’s walks everywhere and for some reason, mine runs! I think it’s so he won’t miss out on anything with his 3 older siblings. So needless to say this boy runs out of shoes quickly! I have been looking for some baby boy walking shoes for my boy.
Summit got the Run Sneaker-Toddler shoes in Brazil green nylon with lime suede trim. These are the cutest throwback shoes and he never wants to take them off. They are easy to put on and come with no tie laces which is good for this mama’s heart.
To be honest, the guy gets a lot of hand-me-downs. I looked at the shoes he wears the other day and the only shoe that was not a hand-me-down, was something his grandmother had given him. I think he loves these shoes because they are his. Also because how well they fit and how they keep him running.
This boy is so active, he needs good shoes from Friendly Rooster to keep him going.
Plus the brands that Friendly Rooster carries are all top of the line and are environmentally and socially responsible. So you can be confident in what you buy from them. To learn more about that, go here.
Plus the lovely people at Friendly Rooster are offering a sweet deal just for my readers! Just use coupon code: SWEETPOTATO15, good for 15% off your purchase. The coupon code is good 7/12/16-7/26/16. Back to school is coming soon so check out their website today.
And you can’t live in Colorado without rocking a man bun every now and then 😉
I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
I have 4 kids and it’s hard to find a toy that could entertain all of them but the new Codeapillar Kids Tech Toy did just that! It’s a Think and Learn toy that kids the kids interacting with each other and the toy. The way the kids arrange the Codeapillar tells the toy where to go and what to do so they have to think of different ways for it to get from one spot to another. It is easy to connect so even my 2-year-old could play with it with the help from my oldest.
It helps develops lots of skills in kids like sequencing, critical thinking, reasoning, discovery, memory, problem solving and experimentation. I love toys that are not only fun for my kids but help them learn. This is no dime a dozen toy, it’s truly a unique experience!
It also lights up and makes sounds to make it even more fun. It comes with 2 round discs, one red and one green. You start the Codeapillar on the green disc and it makes its way to the red one following the code you made for it with the arrangement of its pieces.
This provided hours of fun for all my kids.
You can check it out on BestBuy.com.
Now this is a real picture! Ignore my crummy floor, I just loved how 3 of my kids were all playing with this toy together.
