Sweet Treats Thursday

Welcome back to Sweet Treats Thursday!
I’ve got a few quick things I want to talk about before we get to the party today…
(always, right?)
1) I’ve got a personal favor to ask. If you’re interested, scroll to the bottom of the post after linking up!
2) Congrats to Krista Wood for winning the Silpat Giveaway!!
3) I’m thinking about opening up Sweet Treats Thursday to everyone– crafts, non-sweet recipes, tutorials, etc… what are your thoughts? If I do, should I create two separate link ups– one for sweets, one for everything else? Or just combine it all? Change the name of the party?
4) Last of all, and best of all:

Manage your shopping list and search for recipes from across the web at ZipList.com

There’s a brand new feature at Something Swanky! I’ve partnered with ZipList to bring you the easiest way to save your favorite recipes and create shopping lists on the web!
Have you noticed the Save Recipe button I’ve added to my posts? Just click that button to save it to your ZipList recipe box along with recipes from their other fabulous partners (like Cookies and Cups, Tidy Mom, Skinny Taste, Alli-n-Son, and so many more)! 

All of the recipes you save will be stored in one place, and you can easily generate a shopping list from those recipes with one simple click!
My favorite feature? The app for your smartphone or tablet. I love it!
I save my recipes, make my shopping list, and it’s all with me at the store on my phone!
Plus– the app is free! Just search for “ziplist” in your app store.

I’m so excited for all of you to be able to use this feature on Something Swanky!
Check it out on my new nav bar!
Time to party!!
Last week’s Click Pick: S’mores Pizza by French Press
My Picks:

1. Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake by Michelle’s Tasty Creations
2. Strawberries and Cream Cake by Six Sisters Stuff
3. Cheesecake S’mores Danish by Inside BruCrew Life
You guys are awesome!! Party on!

Ok, now for that personal favor I mentioned…
One of my little brothers is a Senior in high school.
He’s dealt with learning challenges his entire life– ADD, OCD, etc.
School hasn’t been easy for him. Life hasn’t been easy for him.
But he’s found a way to function– and even excel in many areas of his life, including academics– by using music therapy.
For his senior project, he made a video about the merits of using music therapy as a way to cope with learning disabilities. I think he did a great job, and I’m just asking that you take a moment to view it!
He needs this video to get lots of hits for his project– so take a second to check it out!
Thanks a million!!!

  1. You are the bomb diggety for sharing my s’mores danish!!! Thank you so much for the love!!!

    I like having a party that has more things. It helps me not miss out on so many fun other than food posts. And I don’t think you would have to change the name that much. The other link ups are bound to be “sweet” as in awesome!!!

    So is ziplist compatible with blogger? Because I signed up for a few months ago and then wasn’t sure what to do next. Surprise surprise:-)

    Thanks for hosting!!!

    • I haven’t had any problems with it so far! You just click on the save button… I don’t think blogger really makes a difference. Have you had any problems?

    • LOL! I just set up an account…I wasn’t sure what to do next. But honestly does that surprise you any? We both know how computer challenged I am!

  2. So glad your brother found music to brighten his days and strengthen his spirits! Love the video!

  3. Love your party, love your blog! So much yummy, haha:)

  4. Thanks so much for hosting another party
    If you ask me – I prefer 2 link ups – one for sweets and one for everything else.

    There is nothing like music to brighten even the darkest day :)

  5. Thanks for hosting such a delicious party! Today I am sharing my Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls! Have a GREAT week! —Sheryl—

  6. I checked out ziplist before recipage and it said it wasn’t compatible at the time with blogger. Do you have to transfer each recipe individually into ziplist? I don’t think I would look forward to doing that again!!

    Thanks for hosting. I say more at the party the merrier!

    • They did everything for me. I had to go back in and manually add the Save Recipe button– but only because I wanted to since all of my posts aren’t recipes. If you don’t ask to do that, they’ll give you a code for your HTML that will automatically be inserted in all of your recipes.

  7. Thank you for hosting and I love ziplist, it makes everything so handy.

  8. I love the idea of a desserts only party. I just never have any desserts.:( So, I would love to be able to put other things up, but in a separate list, I think.:)

  9. Thanks for hosting!! I’m your newest follower:) I think it’s up to you~ if you want two categories or not, but I tend to have many non-dessert posts too. Come say hello sometime at http://stellabskitchen.blogspot.com

  10. Thank you so much for hosting!!!

  11. Thanks for hosting Ashton, as always. As long as you keep doing this fabulous party, I’m good with it being anything! :)

    Now I’m curious about ziplist. I’ll add that to my list of things to do. Ha!

    I watched the video…and I shared it on my personal FB, hope that’s okay? :)

  12. I love that you have a desserts-only party; I think that’s what makes it unique.
    Your brother did an amazing job on the video!

  13. Love all the desserts here! So fun! Thanks for hosting!!

    I’ve shared your video on my FB and Google+ page.

    Thanks and have a great weekend!

  14. You are the BEST!! Thanks for the feature, the party, and all the extras! Headed out the door for school carpool – will watch the video when I return. My son suffers with adhd and several other learning issues – music is amazing:)

  15. This video is great, but it posts the whole blog when I try to share it on my Facebook page. Is it someplace where I can share just the video? My daughter is a psychologist and a musician and music has always been her “safe place” when she needed it.

    • Never mind … finally took an extra minute and found the link on the actual video. It is now on my Facebook page. Blessings to your brother. I am so glad he found music.

    • This is Cooper, thanks for watching the video and for sharing it!! So many people don’t know about expressive art therapy, I hope the story of Jesse will illustrate to many people the power of the arts.

  16. Thank you for sharing this video!!

  17. Thanks for the giveaway!! I’m super excited to use my Silpat!

  18. I think you should open it up to at least non-sweets. I have lots of non-sweet recipes that I can’t share here! Sad. Thanks for hosting!

  19. Thanks for sharing the video. Music has such extreme powers, and I’m glad your brother was able to benefit from it. I have shared this on my FB page!

  20. Hi Ashton! Here to link up Birthday {Pan}Cake!!!

  21. Thanks so much for hosting Ashton :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Thank you so much for hosting, I have shared the link on my personal Facebook page.
    Have a great weekend.

  23. I linked up for the first time and am now headed to pin some recipes! I love the video and shared it. I have two sons with ADHD and one of them also has an anxiety disorder. I love anything that raises awareness that these kids often just need an outlet. The video was very professional!

    • This is Cooper, i’m so glad you liked the video!! I hope your sons find help through the arts like the boy in the video did. If you could do me a huge favor and email, facebook, etc. the link to the video to everyone, that would be absolutely amazing. THANK YOU!! :) youtube.com/watch?v=LMcr_i_oYNA

  24. My preference would be to keep the sweet treats party and add an additional for everything else.

  25. I watched the video and it was great! What a shame that some schools are doing away with many of the arts. Everyone learns differently and this video poignantly points this out. What a wonderful program, especially for those with difficulties learning the traditional way.
    Ashton, I think it would be fine if your linky party was all-inclusive, but if that’s the case I would change the name to make it clear that the party is not just for desserts.
    Thanks for hosting the party!

  26. Very good video…great program. I hope your brother gets a good grade on his project!
    Thanks for sharing

  27. Thanks so much for featuring my Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake! You made my day. It is super delish and easy to make :) Thanks for hosting another great link party. Have a fabulous week.


  28. Great job Cooper! That is an amazing video. I will definitly be sharing it with all of my facebook and twitter followers!
    Ashton thanks for hosting another great party!

  29. Clicked on the video, and good luck to your brother! Way to shine a light on that subject! Thanks for hosting the party, too!

  30. i’ve linked up my orange cranberries scones, thks for hosting :)

  31. Ashton,

    Thank you for hosting!

    I appreciate it,

Sweet Treats Thursday

Hi all! Glad you made it to Sweet Treats Thursday!
It has been a craaaaazy week here. And I am really ready to see what you brought for dessert!
But, first, I have kind of a sad announcement to make.
Those of you who were following my Naptime Stumble Posts probably saw this coming about 10 miles away– I will be discontinuing my very pathetic attempt to unravel the mysteries of Stumble.
So sorry to drop that project! But I’ve just had too much going on blog-wise to add that head-scratcher to the mix. If anyone else decides to figure it out, let me know! :)
Ok, now on to the good stuff.
I’ve decided to add an additional feature to the party each week– a “Click Pick.”
I’m sure you’re all already familiar with this linky term.
A Click Pick is the linkup with the most views, 
and I’ll feature the top one each week based solely on how YOU click!
So without further ado….
Last week’s click pick was:
The Best Frosting the Pioneer Woman’s Ever Had linked up by The Traveling Spoon.
My pick features this week:
Ooey Gooey Homemade Snickers Bars by Flour and Friends:
I always think “gooey-ness” is so frustrating as a photographer, but it’s got to be my absolute favorite thing as a viewer.  It’s like you can taste it…
Valentine M&M Samoa Blondies by Six Sister’s Stuff:
(these have been following me EVERYWHERE this week!)
Oreo Crust Mix {Heart Munch} by Crazy for Crust (who else??):
This changed my life… and I’m being totally serious.
No. Seriously.
You can find the old featured button on my buttons page! 
Sorry I still haven’t updated those to my new look yet :/
Party time! Play nice, please:
2. Try to stumble and pin some of your fellow linkers!
3. Hire me to re-design your blog. You must do this to link up.
…ha. Just kidding :)
Party on!

Please visit my Party Page for a more complete index of Link Parties.
If you host a regular link party, please add it to my Party Page!

  1. I have shared High Tea Lemon Cookies. Thank you for hosting!

  2. Whew, already hired ya! As for stumble, I have tried everything, yet I have no idea how to get “stumbled” consistently. I seem to have more viewers from pinterest though…
    Anyways, have a great week, thanks for hosting!

    • I know. That’s kind of what pushed me over the edge into finally just giving up worrying about stumble– Pinterest seems to be better quality, more consistent traffic. And I like using it WAY better anyway!

  3. Omg!!! You featured me! :) so ecstatic right now I just text my Mom, who is also a blogger! You just made my day, thank you so much!!! Thanks for hosting these amazing parties every week..ugh you are the best!!!

  4. Thanks for hosting! I never tried stumble – glad I didn’t!!

  5. I was so thrilled to see my frosting on your blog – it fits in so well with the color scheme ;) Thanks for featuring it!

  6. Gosh all those other features look so good. Thank you so much for featuring my Oreo Crust Mix. I’m glad it changed your life. It changed mine too. :)

  7. Those blondies have been following me all week too…must be a sign I need more blondies in my life:-) As for stumble…I still can’t figure it out. I like pinterest way better!!!! Thanks for the fun party!!!

  8. Hi Ashton
    I’m sharing today my “Cherry Coffee Cake with crumb topping”
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful party, and hope you have a great weekend

  9. Today I’m linking up my Portobello Pizzas and Banana Bread Muffins. Drop by Fusion Fridays at jennifercooks.com and link up your goodies! Thanks so much for hosting!

  10. Thanks for hosting !:)

  11. All your features look mouthwatering…I can go for one or two or three of those homemade Snickers bars right now.

    Thank you so much for hosting. I am sharing my Chocolate Hazelnut Torte with you today….hope you enjoy it.

  12. Ashton, you are so clever! I love the photos of the football fudge! Gorgeous! Thanks for the party. Not Your Ordinary Agent
    Not Your Ordinary Recipes

  13. Thanks for hosting the party! I wasn’t able to find your button page though, so sorry I was not able to add your button. I did add a link to the post though :)

  14. Thank you for hosting! I just love to see all these desserts!

Sweet Treats Thursday

Happy Sweet Treats Thursday, everyone!
I’m hoping you’ve noticed the design changes around here.
And I’m hoping you like them.
{And I’m kind of hoping you’re not looking too closely yet– still a work in progress…}
After months and months of changing my blog design over, and over, and over again– I’ve finally come to the realization that I love blog design. 
I’m a slow learner.
So I closed my eyes,  took a deep breath, and opened a Blog Design Etsy shop! I’m pretty excited about it. I’ve been dying to tell you– but I wanted to try and get a new design on this blog first.
I only half-way succeeded in waiting. My design still isn’t quite done. 
But I’ve never really been good with secrets for very long.
And I’m doing more than designs– 
I’m going to be offering blog start-up and blog clean-up consultations!
No worries! I’ll still be here, just the same– maybe just a little bit more distracted than usual.
You may notice a little less text– which I doubt you’ll mind ;)
Anyway, stop by the shop and check it out! 
I’m really excited to share it with you :)
And I’d love to sponsor a few giveaways, so let me know if you’re interested.
Let’s move on to desserts, shall we?
Features from last week’s party: 
Chocolate Fudge with Nutter Butter Crust from Crazy For Crust
Turtle Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies from Mrs. Fox’s Sweets
Deep Dish Snickerdoodle Cups from The Domestic Rebel

Great job ladies! I’m working on a new featured button, 
but feel free to grab the old one from the “buttons” tab at the bottom of my sidebar!
Let’s go over some rules:
1. SWEET TREATS ONLY! (unfortunately, this does not include: shrimp, pasta,  taco seasoning, or that portable art studio from last week. Ahem.)
2. Link to specific posts, not your main page.
3. Share the love! Pin and stumble other posts!

Please visit my Party Page for a more complete index of Link Parties.
If you host a regular link party, please add it to my Party Page!

Sweet Treats Thursday

Have I ever told you that I say ‘Dude’ a lot?
I always allow myself to write my posts with the word “dude” throughout– just so it sounds more natural. And then I have to go back and delete them all out of the post.
Because if I didn’t… I think I’d sound ridiculous.
I absolutely, under no circumstances fall into any sort of demographic that can (stereotypically) use the word “dude” and sound cool.
Anyway. That was an extremely long tangent.
Especially when all I really wanted to say was:
Dude. I am tired.
I hosted a cookie swap/pampered chef party tonight and I am out of any more holiday energy.
Seriously. That was the last of it, I’m sure.
Ok. Here are the features this week :)
The links were all so fabulous and festive last week I could hardly choose!
But I did. And here they are:
Reindeer Noses to-go by Munchkin Munchies. I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE cookies in a jar. LOVE.

Oatmeal Milky Way Brownie Bars by The Sweet Swiper. Are you kidding me?
Red Velvet Peppermint Crinkle Cookies by Cookin’ Cowgirl. I think these are just so perfectly festive.
And Reese’s Nutter Butter Cookies by Shugary Sweets. Ah-mazing!!
These posts are all going to be pinned and stumbled tomorrow morning (after a full night of sleep)!
1. Link up as many DESSERTS as you want (specific post, not main page).
2. Play nice- go pin and stumbler some other linkers.
3. Button-grabbing is good.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my Oatmeal Milky Way Brownie Bars…..they were a huge hit! I’ve brought a bunch of stuff this week…..it’s been a busy week in my kitchen!

  10. hehe – I say ‘dude’ a lot, too. Well, really just to my husband (for some reason, we always call each other ‘dude’) but sometimes it gets out of hand. My husband accidentally called his mom ‘dude’ a few weeks ago, so we’ve been trying to cut back! ;) This just makes me like you (and your awesome blog!) even more, dude!

  11. Hi Ashton, thanks for the party. everything looks way tempting!! I posted some oreo christmas mice. Have a good one andi

  12. Thanks so much for featuring my reindeer noses to-go! I hope my Rudolph Nose Pops aren’t redundant:)
