Oh another good movie weekend. I have been waiting for this one to come out. The previews for it caught my attention!
I went to see “The Way Way Back” this past Friday night. I LOVED it. It is funny, sweet, sad and exciting all at the same time. Plus you get to see Steve Carell in a whole new light.
Plot: 14-year-old Duncan’s summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and his daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.
Starring: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph, Amanda Peet and Liam James.
PLEASE go support this movie! You will not be sorry.

As always, let me know what you think.
I hope you all had a good weekend! It always goes so fast.
I saw a good movie this weekend. So good, that I have to tell you all about it.
It is a little Indie film that premiered to great ratings at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It was filmed in Ohio.
Plot: Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by the attempts of his single father, Frank (Nick Offerman), to manage his life. Declaring his freedom once and for all, he escapes to a clearing in the woods with his best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), and a strange kid named Biaggio (Moisés Arias). He announces that they are going to build a house there, free from responsibility and parents. Once their makeshift abode is finished, the three young men find themselves masters of their own destiny, alone in the woods.
This movie is funny and entertaining. The boys cast in their roles are FANTAASTIC. Patrick’s parents are amazingly funny and so awkward.
I highly recommended going to see it if it is in a theater near you. Let me know what you think!

I find so many recipes on Pinterest. This one I made with my niece, Riley. So easy and so good! Perfect around the holidays!
Mint Chocolate Chip Bark
Makes one 8×8 pan | Preparation: Line pan with wax paper
14-18 Andes Mint, chopped
5 oz dark chocolate
8-10 chocolate wafers
7 oz. white chocolate
1-2 drops of green food color (dip toothpick in food color)
1.Chop Andes Mint Candy and set aside.
2.Place dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl over (not on) simmering water and stir until melted. Pour melted chocolate into 8×8 pans, using an offset icing spatula smooth out chocolate until an even layer is achieved. Place chocolate wafers on top and gently press it into the chocolate. Place pan in refrigerator for 5 minutes for chocolate to become slightly harden.
3.Place white chocolate in a heat proof bowl over (not on) simmering water and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Dip toothpick or skewer in green food coloring and then dip it into the white chocolate; stir to combine.
4.Remove pan with chilled dark layer and pour melted white chocolate on top. Using an offset icing spatula smooth out chocolate until an even layer is achieved. Sprinkle chopped Andes Mint Candy on top and return the fully assembled bark to the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes or until bark is fully set.
* If you don’t have Andes candy available. Nestle’s mint chips will work just as well.
* To add a crunchy layer of texture I used these chocolate wafers from Nabisco, if those are unavailable where you are chocolate graham crackers or cocoa pebbles will work just as well.
* To color the white chocolate, I used Americolor’s Electric Green, but any green will work. Just make sure that you start slowly with the color by dipping the end of tooth pick or skewer into the food coloring then into the melted white chocolate. Don’t squeeze the food color directly over the chocolate or you may end up with a blob of color that will result in a deep green instead of a soft mint green.
