Family Fun Friday is all about connecting as a family. We feature great ideas for family fun, and things to help moms get things done so they have more time to spend doing what they love to do – be with family!

I have the joy of featuring posts related to family approved recipes. You know, those recipes that your family will likely say “yum!” to. Cooking 3 meals a day 365 days a year can seem daunting…but I know that all of your great ideas will help us all in this task of feeding our families healthy meals they will enjoy eating. So, thank you in advance for linking up and using your gifts to encourage others!

Each co-host will also share her favorites from the party on her blog for the following week’s party which just increases your chances of being featured. Each featured post will be pinned by the hostesses so be sure to link up your best!

Featured Bloggers:

This week I’m featuring some a whole family of delicious desserts. I don’t know about your family, but in mine, we all like different types of desserts. My daughter will always choose chocolate and my older son, he will go for something vanilla or a big slice of apple pie. My husband, low sugar desserts are his thing and our little one, he is still deciding but seems to lean toward cupcakes. So, if your family is like mine, then this group of features is for you! Hop on over to Happy and Blessed Home to view features on Family Fun and over to Everyday Family Living for more family friendly features and also over to Early Bird Mom for features on Saving Money in the Kitchen.

First, for my 2 year old, I am featuring these Mini Carrot Cupcakes from Organizer by Day. Really, not only my son will enjoy these, but me also since I tend toward something other than chocolate as well. These cupcakes are not only pretty, but also look moist and delicious!

Next, for my daughter, who usually goes for the chocolate, also happens to enjoy a sweet treat in the morning, I featured this amazing looking Orange Twist Coffee Cake from That’s My Home. I think my whole family would welcome this tasty creation for breakfast!

Also featured, are these Pralines that can be made in the microwave. If you are looking for something quick and easy, here it is! I added these for all those families who are looking for something quick and easy to satisfy their sweet tooth (or teeth!) :). The Tiptoe Fairy has made something really delicious looking here!

Next, the name alone makes it clear why I chose these. Chocolate Oreo Sprinkle Donuts…and they are baked! This is one for my son and my daughter…since these donuts by Love Bakes Good Cakes also contain oreos, they will be enjoyed by both of them. They are really pretty too!

Also featured, Valentine Red Velvet Brownies. We are all fans of these sweet treat. And, it is all dressed up for Valentine’s Day! Perfect! Great job Kleinworth and Co!

Last, and certainly not least, Easy Tres Leches Cake. This one is for my son and anyone else who leans toward vanilla desserts. This cake from A Mother’s Shadow looks moist and delicious and easy as well! Try it out!
