Stuffed Mini Corn Muffins

Thinking of a way to get rid of, I mean use up,  hot dogs leftover from the birthday party for the the twins, I decided to make corn muffins.  Then, thoughts turned to the chili I had leftover to top the hot dogs.

Cinnamon Roll Bread

I'm making this Cinnamon Roll Bread for the twins' birthday breakfast.  It is such a fun way to eat cinnamon rolls.....slice and pull apart!  And, just perfect for this morning when we are running around getting ready for their birthday party!  So much to do...so much to do!

Easy DIY Cupcake Toppers

My twins are turning 7!!!  Planning their party just gets more detailed with each turn.  I needed to find cupcake toppers for a class party and couldn't find Angry Birds anywhere.  At least, yesterday afternoon when I searched a few stores.  I decided I would make my own.

Candy Popcorn

I didn't find out until a day ago, that my 5th grader is having a Valentine's Day party!   They have a field trip on Friday, Valentine's Day, that and I just assumed 5th graders didn't celebrate since my son thinks it is babyish to exchange cards.  Awww, where does the time go?  And, just when did my son think he is too old to celebrate?!  As a last minute contribution, I am making Candy Popcorn.  Made with flavored gelatin, it is a breeze to put together, taking literally minutes to make.  It is so colorful and full of flavor, certain to be welcomed by his friends when they open their treat bags.

Blueberry Muffins

I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow!  When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago!  I suddenly feel antiquated....  These muffins are easy to whip up,  slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries.  Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.

Black Bean Salsa

Who doesn't love snacking?  I know we do and we do it often!  There is just something about eating with hands. Hand reaches to chip, to salsa and dip, to veggies (a least one son's hand does) to hungry mouths that await anxiously.  Snack, snack, smack!  Yes, that was my boys! They tend to get a little overzealous with chips and snacks and anything they can make a loud, mouthy sound with.  I love my boys..but let's keep it quiet, okay?  This lip smacking Black Bean Salsa was just another noise in the bowl app, awaiting my hungry boys.  I adapted the recipe from a can of Bush's Best Black Beans!
