There is so much to love about seasonal produce, and fall is full of so many good ones. Apples galore, pumpkin and all things pumpkin spice, and also squash and lots of it. Some of the more popular kinds of squash are butternut, acorn, and […]

Upside Down Magic Viewing Party

Another new children’s movie coming out means another opportunity to turn it into an event. And I’m here to help you guys do the same. Summer 2020 is a lot different than what we are used to but we can still make the most of […]

Deconstructed Berry Shortcake

My favorite thing to during late spring and summer time is to take my kids berry picking to a few of our favorite local farms. This is my own little version of “farm to table”. We pick various berries and cherries in the morning and […]

Double Rainbow Cupcakes

Double Rainbow Cupcakes

Another year, another new birthday treat to come up with. This sweet little treat is actually a twist on a cupcake I made for my other daughters birthday a few years back. I did change it some, and ditched the texture for novelty. By following […]
