This week we made another Halloween treat. We decided on ghost cupcakes. If you can pipe frosting on a cupcake, you can make these.
We make a lot of Halloween treats in our house. These adorable pudding graveyards are a Halloween dessert that is easy enough for those of us with little to no culinary artistic ability.
As is often the case, I got this recipe from my mom. These only require a few steps to throw together and have the best culinary combination ever imagined: chocolate and peanut-butter. As my three-year old would say; “Yum-O!”
I generally only use cake mixes to make cookies, but I saw a recipe similar to this and decided since I’m trying to keep my girlish figure, plus have my cake and eat it too, I’d give this recipe a try. I was very surprised with how moist and rich these cupcakes were.
Those of you with kids in school know how hectic mornings can be. Mom and Dad are trying to get the kids dressed and fed and the kids are trying to find time to play with every toy they own, all before it’s time to leave for school. It’s pure chaos. In our home, we’ve come up with a method that helps us provide our kids with a good, nutritious breakfast without taking a lot of time.
Last night I prepared to make dinner by looking at my list to see what I’d planned for that night. I’d written “Sesame Chicken Noodles.” Confused, I pulled out my collection of most commonly used cookbooks and my list of handwritten recipes, hoping to find one entitled, “Sesame Chicken Noodles.” It was nowhere to be found. The problem was, my taste buds were all prepped for said dish and I couldn’t be satisfied with a substitute. I decided to come up with my own version.
Last month, my mom made Minnie Mouse pillowcase dresses for her young granddaughters. I personally think my daughter is really cute. But my daughter in this dress… it was a cute overload. She got away with more that first day than usual. Here is how to make a Minnie Mouse pillowcase dress in my mom’s words.
A few weeks ago I went to an event for families and was asked to bring treats. For some reason, I have a lot of friends who have kids with allergies. I was tasked to find a gluten-free, peanut-free, dairy-free, egg-free recipe. Luckily, I knew how to make these awesome popcorn balls. Did you know popcorn is gluten free?
A favorite family pastime in our home is lightsaber duels. But since dueling your child with a large plastic stick is generally frowned upon, we made some safer lightsabers. These are also great for a Star Wars birthday party. Plus, they’re cheap! Each saber is around $0.50.
