Homemade granola bars are easy to make and are a great treat to have on hand. You can vary the add-ins like raisins, chocolate chips, or nuts, but the basic recipe is still the same. I was inspired by the special edition Red, White, and Blue M&M’s to make these Patriotic Granola Bars for a […]

Patriotic Oreos

With Memorial Day and the Fourth of July coming up, I’m thinking about the stars and stripes, the freedom we have in America, and the sacrifices it took to get those freedoms. I’m so grateful to live in a place with so much freedom, even if I do think America is taking some things to […]

Two Peas in a Pod Cupcakes for Twins

I recently had the honor of making cupcakes for a twin baby shower. My idea for the twin baby shower theme was “Two Peas in a Pod”. Cupcakes are my specialty and I’m known for making the best buttercream icing around in my circle friends. I often try to make shaped cupcake cakes, but since […]

Sundae Fundae Back-to-School Party

Letting the boys take ownership of the party planning was a great lesson in responsibility as they chose ice cream toppings, made invitations, and even helped set up for the party. I loved watching them make decisions and compromises with each other. But most of […]
