How To Make Memorable Yet Easy To Make Halloween Treats
October 30, 2016

  I love Halloween and yes, I love sugar.  But candy is overrated and I'm yearning for something different this Halloween. So instead of sending candy to school, my son and I made goodies.  He's very creative and loves to make things so I included him in this project and let him help make some of the goodies.     Instead of making sugar cookies from scratch, I purchased this mix from Aldi.  These sugar cookies are to die for and you only have to add an egg and stick of butter and they're ready to go in the oven. Next, I found a really easy recipe for frosting on food.com.     These are the ingredients you will need: Vanilla Extract Milk Powdered Sugar One stick of butter Food Coloring     After I was done mixing the frosting, I added …

October 29, 2016

  This is a guest post written by Holly Hirshberg, wife and mommy to two beautiful babes, Maya and Mason.

How To Make Rainbow Pretzel Goody Bags With 3 Ingredients
September 30, 2016

  Fifth Birthdays are a big deal around here.  We are going to LEGOLAND and Disney.  My mother flew out for the big day also.  So you can imagine how important it was to my son, Henri. But the first celebration starts at school.  We had cupcakes and goodie bags.  However, I really don't like putting candy in goody bags.  Kids are so used to getting candy and I wanted to do something different.  Being  the over ambitious mother that I am, I thought I would do two goody bags.  I made one with left over toys from previous parties and one with rainbow pretzels.     You have to think quick when you have a small class of mostly girls.  At the same time you want to please the …
