Harvest Snack Mix

Harvest Trail Mix 1

This Harvest Snack Mix is the perfect mix of salty and sweet. If you can get your hands on the last bags of candy corn pumpkins, you won’t regret it. But If all you can find is candy corn, that will work just the same – minus the extra cute factor. I made this as […]

Kale & Sweet Potato Mash

kale and sweet potato

This is something I would make for Oliver when he was a baby. Now it’s one of Henry’s favorite things to eat. It’s nothing fancy, just sweet potatoes cooked with kale and blended together with a little sauteed garlic (garlic can be omitted). I like to leave it a little chunky for Henry since he’s […]

Semi-Homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream

It has been a while since I’ve made truly homemade ice cream. One that forces me to dust off my ice cream maker and get to work. What I love about this semi-homemade pumpkin ice cream is that it slowly eases me back into making ice cream from scratch. Not to mention I can make […]

Grilled Cheese Sliders

It’s starting to get a chill outside that is undeniably Fall, bordering Winter. I can’t help going straight to comfort food this time of year. And now that my picky-eating-toddler is now trying new things, willingly(!!) I’m having more fun being more creative with what I put on the table. Like these warm cheesy grilled […]

DIY Charlie Brown Baby Costume

  I found this yellow onesie at H&M before one of my close friends planted the idea of a Charlie Brown costume in my head. I used an iron-on fusible paper to attach the black  fabric chevron stripe that went across the belly. I didn’t have black shorts, so dark denim shorts went in replacement. To seal […]

Spooky Spaghetti

Watching my toddler get excited for holidays as each year passes makes getting ready for them even more enjoyable. It gives me the excuse to be a kid again and play with my food. I’ve seen dyed pasta before, some made into rainbow pasta, I’ve even seen it dyed black, for an even spookier spaghetti. […]

Candied Pumpkin Apples

This is a great activity to do with your kids.  I used Wilton’s Candy Melts (in orange), small apples (I like Honey Crisp or Fuji), and candy markers to make the jack-o-lantern face.  For the sticks I used disposable wooden chop sticks that I cut in half for two dipped apples – but you can […]

Spooky Ghost Pizza

I can’t believe Halloween is almost two weeks away!  There is so much to do here at the house to get this place into full spectacular Halloween mode.  Stay tuned for more DIY decorations and crafts for the kids. Tonight I am taking a basic pizza recipe and adding a twist…I’m making a Spoooooky Ghost […]

Sweet Potato Pumpkin

What better way to celebrate Autumn then by transforming one of my favorite side dishes, mashed sweet potatoes, into a festive pumpkin. Add some savory extras to create a stem and jack-o-lantern face. Here I used black olives for eyes, a green bean and parsley for the stem and stump. Prepare mashed sweet potatoes as […]

Monster Donuts

monster donuts 5

I brought these over to my nieces and sister last week as a little surprise. My niece’s love donuts (who doesn’t?) and my pregnant sister is on a sugar-everything craving binge. Since they happen to love Halloween too, I thought this mash up of monster’s and donuts would add a little spooky fun to their […]
