Celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day with Entenmann's + Giveaway

Boy, is it hot here in Phoenix! We hit 121 degrees the other day.  But there is still a couple of windows of time during the day that we can sneak out; early in the morning and around dinnertime.  Of course, there's nothing like a yummy cold treat when we are in the back yard, whether we are out there for bounce house water fun or a barbecue! Summers are what we look forward to all year. And we always have something cold to cool us down. Ice cream desserts are out favorite.  We also love Entenmann's donuts, especially the chocolate.  So, we combined the two to make delicious donut ice cream sandwiches.  This is a really simple recipe that the kids can enjoying making …

10 Fun Ice Cream Desserts

July was National Ice Cream Month, and although I'm a few days late, it's never too late to eat ice cream, especially here in Phoenix! It was 121 degrees yesterday. We hit a record this month! If I could eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner I would. I'd have a Pop Tart Ice Cream Sandwich for breakfast, Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwich for lunch, Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich for dinner and Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich for dessert! No, I'm kidding. That's not healthy at all but a girl can dream, right? Ice cream is my favorite dessert to eat.

Essentials for Back to School During Covid-19

Thank you to any retailers who sent me pro I have never written a back to school list where I had to consider remote learning as well. Homeschooling during Covid-19 may be a breeze for some parents who have home schooled already but not me! It's a lot to take in. Even with school just two weeks away, I am still uncertain of how things are going to be and what we will need for back to school during Covid-19. We have been buying more disinfecting wipes and taking safety measures when we leave the house like wearing face coverings. We will do remote learning for the first 3 weeks so there is some wiggle room for school supplies. But there are certainty …

We found some kid's indoor activities when school abruptly stopped due to Covid-19. The kid's got bored staying at home all summer and we had to find more creative things to do indoors. I found some fun creative crafts for kids on Etsy to try like a Lip Balm Kit, Simply Sensory kits to spark creative play, Kids sewing kit for little ones to learn to sew, Kids Easter egg stained glass craft kits, and Kids butterfly + dragonfly stained glass suncatcher kits.

How to Make A Strawberry Victoria Sponge Cake

I love a good sponge cake with a cuppa.  I am a "Brit" as they say.  But I'm half British and half Greek and while I do like some of the British food, I tend to lean on enjoying Greek food more. Unless we are talking about cakes. I love British cakes. So, when I find a British dessert that I love, like a Strawberry Victoria Sponge Cake, I share it.  I feel like I would be doing my readers a disservice by not sharing it. This is the best recipe for a Victoria Sponge cake, I promise you. Also called a hot milk sponge cake; it is one of the easiest and tastiest cakes I have ever had. The Victoria Sponge …

Easy DIY Greeting Cards

Who doesn't love getting a greeting card? Lately, I've been getting crafty and and decided to make DIY personal greeting cards for people I care about.

Instead of using paint to color sticks, use OOLY Brush Markers. Folding the flowers …
