Gift bags at the store are boring and impersonal. Plus, they are usually expensive! Instead of spending a lot of money on something that’s just going to get tossed in the trash, take a little extra time to make the gift bag special enough to be part of the gift.
Growing up, I always had a night light in my room because I had an overactive imagination. I would convince myself that I was seeing all sorts of shapes and figures in my room, and the only thing that would really make me feel safe was that tiny blinking star in the corner by my […]
Even though hard copies of photos are hard to come by these days, I still enjoy making picture frames when I do have a special photo in mind. These are usually milestone photos of me and my family, or simply just random family memories that I want to hang up.
If you’re a cool mom, aunt, uncle or sibling, you have at least one slime recipe in your arsenal. I wasn’t always a cool mom and had to teach myself how to do the coveted slime kit that kids seem to be raving about lately, and I must say, it’s quite fun to make even […]
One day, I got home from work to find my dresser an absolute mess. My little ones had found mommy’s ‘paint’ and had transformed my area into a piece of ‘artwork’. Now that they’re older, they’ve taken their science experiments and art projects outdoors, thankfully.
I don’t think it would be too much of an exaggeration to say that pretty much all kids love playing with playdough. It’s just one of those seemingly universal things that all kids play with when they’re growing up. With that in mind, I’m sure you and your kids will enjoy this homemade gingerbread playdough.
I love a good cake like anybody else, but there is something to be said for the humble mug cake. In just 5 minutes, you can have dessert with minimal ingredients and literally no clean-up.
Strawberries and white chocolate–a classic combination that never fails me. When I’m feeling a little down, I make a batch of this and my mood instantly becomes a little brighter.
Technically, there’s no wrong way to make trail mix. You can add pretty much any type of nut, seed or dried fruit you want, not to mention the chocolate bits, too. However for roasted nuts, I find that some combinations and glazes are better than others. Salted is the most basic of course, but I […]
What’s in your freezer? I’m not ashamed to admit that mine is full of homemade chocolate bark because, well, why not? I much prefer homemade chocolate bark to the chocolate found in the supermarket because while it’s delicious, I’m not a fan of the long list of ingredients and all that refined sugar.
I absolutely love granola in all shapes, sizes and forms. I don’t care if it’s loaded with chocolate or doesn’t have any at all–I will still enjoy it immensely. I actually went through a huge granola phase at one point, so I know all about making A-plus granola that even the kids will enjoy.
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty picky when it comes to my waffle mix. I don’t just use any old mix for my waffles; I make sure to use real, honest to goodness waffle mix to ensure that the texture is just the way I want it: crispy on the outside and fluffy […]
This homemade oatmeal mix is my absolute favorite for breakfast. Everytime I bring it to work everyone is always so jealous because it smells amazing and is actually good for you!
