Cold and Flu Season is in full swing… my kiddo has already had his fair share of sick days this year, and it’s just miserable. That said, I have a few tried-and-true cold and flu season tips that will help your child feel a little more comfortable during their illness.
Ah, Christmas break. It’s upon us, isn’t it? And that means finding ways to keep the kids busy (and out of the gift stash) until Christmas. It’s the perfect time to bring out the DIY supplies, though, and get crafting! This fun craft serves a dual purpose, though– kids can DIY these rain sticks, then use them as musical instruments to calm down, or to sing fun carols as a family.
A couple of weeks ago, I gave you a little sneak peek at my biscotti and promised it was coming soon… so I hope you’re ready, because here it is! I recently signed up for the Food Blogger Cookie Swap, which is basically like this really fun cookie exchange with awesome bakers from across the country. Since I needed cookies that would mail well, I decided to experiment with some Biscotti. And here’s the great news– this biscotti? It’s crazy easy.
Disclosure: I received a copy of This House Needs a Mouse for review. All opinions are my own.
I’m a sucker for a good children’s book. So when I heard the synopsis of This House Needs a Mouse by C. Jeffrey Nunnally, I didn’t expect it to be quite like it turned out. I expected a story about a mouse, and, yes, I got that for sure. What I didn’t realize was that the book was about family, and that’s a topic I can definitely get behind.
As dip week comes to a close soon, I’ve saved my best for last, guys. Really– this is a hearty, delicious dip that could almost be considered a meal instead of just an appetizer. I challenge you to find anyone who doesn’t love a bacon cheeseburger (and finding a vegan doesn’t count!) There’s just something about it– the bacon, the ooey-gooey cheese, the juicy beef patty. But bacon cheeseburgers are just not easy party food… however, a bacon cheeseburger DIP, now, that’s another story.
I love tiramisu. It’s delicious. It just tastes fancy. There’s something about that blend of coffee and cream and everything delicious that makes my mouth water.
But it’s also kind of a pain in the butt to make. All of those layers! Don’t worry, though– you can totally serve the best tiramisu ever, without really serving tiramisu. With this easy tiramisu dip, you’ll give your guests (or yourself!) all of the flavor without any of the work that actual tiramisu requires.
Looking for an easy dip that will be a stunner? Want to make sure no one else will have the same dip as you do? This Raspberry Black Bean Dip is spicy and sweet, and it’s a perfect fit for any party, but it’s so simple that no one will believe the minimal effort!
Christmas… New Year… The Super Bowl… it seems like for the next three months, everyone is going to be slammed with parties, get-togethers, and other activities that require sustenance. After all of the slaving away in the kitchen (or the last minute invites), you may need a go-to dip that takes minutes to make. But that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice taste. This southwest corn dip fits the bill of easy AND delicious.
We’ve all been there. It’s Christmas time, and we want to send cookies to a friend, but there’s always that fear that they’ll get there crushed. And you don’t want that– picture perfect cookies are so much better! So how do you ship a cookie without fancy supplies like bubble wrap or packing peanuts? Well, there are a few great ways to do it!
