Campfire Chicken and Broccoli Pockets

Campfire Chicken and Brocolli Pockets

This is one of those recipes that you can make at home in your oven and is delicious.  Or you can make this outside over a campfire and it's to die for.  Doesn't all food taste better when your camping?  I think so.  Case in point - I'd never eat a hotdog at home.  But cook one over the campfire and I'll eat it. I make the filling at home.  That way I don't have to do all the clean up while we're camping. Line the bottom of your pie iron with cresent dough. Add your chicken … [Continue reading...]

DIY Waffle Postcard Tutorial - Fun Things You Can Mail

No, that's not our Saturday morning breakfast, it's a postcard.  Yep, a postcard!  But not the flat, semi boring, postcards.  This is like a big, 3D, super cool postcard.  And yes, you mail it just like that. When we made our Slice of Birthday Cake postcard I knew I wanted to make more fun things to send in the mail.  So we did.  We made Beach Bottles and mailed Easter Eggs.   We even made Ice Cream Sandwich Postcards.   There are so many different ways you can send some love via the USPS. … [Continue reading...]

Chocolate Caramel Twix Rice Crispy Treats

Who doesn’t love a good Rice Crispy Treat?  And when I say good, I mean homemade, not store bought.  The store bought Rice Crispy Treats taste so artificial to me.  I know what you’re thinking.  Artificial?  Yes, artificial, weird, waxy.  But homemade?  Pure deliciousness!

Campfire Brownies

Are you a camper?  I assume everyone goes camping so it always surprises me when I hear people say they don’t.  Being out under the stars with the smell of trees and a campfire are like therapy to me.  When my kids were young I took them camping because it was something we could do […]

DIY Fire Starters

Summer for me and my kids means camping.  Lots of camping!  Unfortunately this year it’s not happening.  When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I wasn’t sure what the future would look like, and how I would feel this summer.  So I cancelled our camping reservations and figured we’d stay close to home this summer.  […]

Oatmeal Rolo Bars

After over three months of not baking, I’m back!  Sorry for my absence.  I’ve been dealing with some health issues and baking was just too much for me. In April I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  It’s been a turbulent couple of months, to say the least.  I’m tired… all the time.   And for some […]

Highlight of my Year - Printable Gift Tag

I’m sure my co-workers think I’m a dork always giving them gifts with puns on them. You know, the “donut you know how much I care about you?” or the “Here’s to a germ free year” gifts. They make me laugh so they’re stuck with them. And working in a school kind of gives me […]

Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

My kids love chewy chocolate chip granola bars.  They’re easy to put in their backpack or lunch and it doesn’t really matter if they get squished a little.  They’re still delicious. So why not make them?  Homemade is just so much better than store bought in just about everything.  Well, except clothes.  I’m not making […]
