Homemade Butterfinger Bark

Homemade Butterfinger Bark

FOR.  Seriously.  Delicious.  Well, this is pretty much the same thing except in bark form.  Which basically means it’s the same thing but thinner.  Oh yeah, and easier because you don’t have to dip each individual piece.  But that also means […]

A co-worker brought these to our staff Christmas party and my first thought?  Genius!  Then my second thought?

These cute cookies have been on my “to make” list for awhile.  I thought they were so cute and they made me think of my Grandma Sara.  She would have loved these!  She loved tea and I remember, even as a kid, sitting down and drinking tea with her in her fancy china tea cups […]

Loom Band Charms

Loom Band Charms (Rainbow Loom Band Charms)

Yep, we’re hooked on Loom Bands in our house.  We’ve made more bracelets than one family ever should.  But it’s fun, cheap, fairly easy and something my kids and I can do together.  We sit on the floor in front of my iPad and look up videos on YouTube.  It’s great family time! Why are we […]

It’s the third Monday of the month.  Yeah.  That means it’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day.  It kind of snuck up on us this month.  School has started (sigh.)  Who else is running around feeling completely frazzled lately?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m okay with my kids going back to school.  But that means I […]
