Easy Summer Salsa Recipe
Jamie here, my husband’s favorite words that come out of my mouth are probably “I think I’ll make Salsa today!” His face lights up, as do the boys’, with unadulterated joy. It’s an understatement to say that my whole family loves Mexican food – so when I make my salsa recipe, I usually do a triple batch. That way I can use it over the next few days in any other Mexican recipes I wind up cooking. Plus – it tastes even BETTER the second day…

Looking for an Easy Memorial Day treat? Don’t bother heating up the oven to bake something red-white-and-blue instead check out these ideas for Fruit Kabobs! For instance, this cute and yummy flag made of Fruit-Kabobs is easy to put together and makes a nice presentation!
All you’ll need is some bananas, strawberries, blueberries and kabob sticks! TIP: Aldi’s has their strawberries on sale for $.99 per carton this week where we live in Tennessee!
Or ty these Red, White & Blue Fruit Kabobs or “Sparklers”! This take on fruit-kabobs is extra fun for the little ones – just alternate blueberries, watermelon and mini-marshmallows on a skewer. Stick them all into half of a cut watermelon for a cute skewer-holder!
*Actually, you wouldn’t really need to cut the watermelon – you could probably skewer through the rind easily enough

Since changing the kinds of foods that we eat last year, homemade microwave popcorn has become a favorite snack at our house. I never realized how the amount of additives added to foods that I previously thought were healthy like microwave popcorn. After an afternoon of testing out different ways to make homemade popcorn I came up with a Kettle and Cinnamon Pop Corn recipe that my little ones absolutely loved. There are so many ways you can change up this recipe, but the recipes included below are our favorites. I’d love to hear your ideas! [Read more...]

I haven’t made popcorn balls in years. When I was given the opportunity to try out a cool new popcorn baller from Good Cook, I immediately said yes as I knew my kids would enjoy helping me. Also, I have learned that I can incorporate lessons on fractions and measurements when we cook together.
These were so easy to make. I started with homemade microwave popcorn, then found an easy 4 ingredient recipe for the yummy sweet “sticky” part of the recipe.
