For a Tea-Rific Teacher {Gift Idea}

http://makingmemorieswithyourkids.com/category/teacher-appreciation-gifts/

Last year both of my kids were in middle school.  Between the two of them, they had 12 teachers.  Twelve!  Needless to say, Teacher Appreciation Week was a tad stressful for us, trying to come up with ideas that were cute but didn't break the bank.  I thought this idea was perfect!  You could make it as "fancy" as you wanted to depending on the cup you buy and what you fill it with.  And who doesn't love tea? I printed out the free printable tags from Everyday Savvy.  Aren't they cute?  Use any … [Continue reading...]

I Scream You Scream Teacher Gift Idea

https://www.iheartnaptime.net/ice-cream-free-printable/

I am always looking for great teacher gift ideas to give to my kid's teachers and my co-workers.  I believe that it's important to say thanks to the people who are teaching our children.  Don't you? Teacher Appreciation Week begins May 7th.  Have you thought about gift ideas yet? I saw this idea over on I Heart Naptime and loved it.  Who doesn't love ice cream? I printed out the tags on heavy cardstock, taped a Cold Stone gift card on the front and put them in cellophane bags.  Viola!  Perfect … [Continue reading...]

Lucky Charmers - St. Patrick's Day Cookies

I’m kind of in love with the magazine Family Fun.  For years it’s been delivered to my door and I love looking through all the crafts and recipes.  As my kids get older I’m finding most of the crafts are for younger kids, but the recipes?  I don’t care how old my kids are.  Fun […]

Chocolate Dipped Seafoam Candy

Seafoam or Honeycomb Candy

Have you ever heard of Seafoam Candy?  It seems like a beach thing here in Oregon.  Everytime we go to the beach and to the candy store, we buy Seafoam.  It’s delicious and crunchy and, if made right, melts in your mouth. We decided we wanted to give it a try and I’m super glad […]

Scotcheroos Millionaire Nuggets

Scotcheroos Millionaire Nuggets

Chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch makes this dessert one of our favorites! This recipe is similar to the Chex Scotcharoos we made a while back.  We decided to use crispy cereal rather than Chex cereal and we dipped them in the chocolate mixture.  (You can never have too much chocolate.  Am I right?!) We found […]

These cookies are surprisingly delicious.  And by surprisingly I mean, people […]

Outrageous Chicken Nacho Cheese Dip

Outrageous Chicken Nacho Cheese Dip

Chips and Dips are one of my weaknesses.  They are comfort food to me and if I let myself, I could eat them everyday for lunch or dinner.  I don’t, of course.  That would be crazy.  But sometimes I wish I could. A co-worker brought this delicious dip to one of our potlucks and I […]

Chocolate Covered Snowball Cookies

Chocolate Covered Snowball Cookies

Like I wrote in our Pumpkin Spice Snowball Cookies post, these delicious cookies are called different names: Mexican Wedding Cookies, Russian Tea Cakes or Snowball Cookies.  Regardless of what you call them, they are delicious and a family favorite of ours. When I saw Dorothy’s post over on Crazy for Crust I about fell over.  […]

Chocolate, Caramel and Graham Cracker Toffee AKA: Christmas Crack

Christmas Crack or Graham Cracker Toffee

This recipe has a lot of different names.  The one that I see the most is Christmas Crack.  The definitely an odd name but it makes sense after you try this “candy”.  You won’t want to stop eating it.  It’s deliciously addictive!  In a good way, not a bad way. This is a fantastic “candy” […]

Soft Peanut Brittle

Soft Peanut Brittle

I go through baking phases.  I’ll get on a kick where all I want to make is brownies – lots and lots of brownies.  Then it’ll switch over to cookies and I make all sorts of different cookie recipes.  Right now I’m in my candy making phase.  I want to make candy (and eat it!)  […]
