When the temps dip below 70 for one day, I start to decorate for fall! Every year, I swear I won’t buy any more pumpkins! And every year, more and more cute pumpkins come out!!
If you are like me, you are constantly in a hurry before school starts to get the kids out the door to be on time to school! I have been making a few things head of time this year to help our mornings run smoother! Lucy and her friend were the chefs for these make-ahead egg cups! They had a ball making them!
Now that the school has started (or will start soon) for most of us, it’s time for some easy breakfasts that you can make ahead of time to make your mornings run smoother! Over the years, I have finally perfected this granola! I have tried several recipes and finally mixed them together to make one my family LOVES! We even have it for desserts some nights!
I started making this recipe this year for the kids! It is our spin on French toast – without any eggs! The kids love the taste, and I love how fast I can make these in the morning!
For thirteen years, I was an elementary teacher. Eleven of those years were spend teaching first grade! Every year at the end of the school year, I did a math scavenger hunt with my kids! Since I have such a big Teacher Tribe and Mama Tribe, I thought I would share this resource with you to do with your kids! Some of it will need to be modified since we are not in school, but I hope you find it helpful, and it gets your kids outside and having fun!
Briton requested a few oldies but goodies for dinners this week! So…. I busted out the photo album that holds all of our favorite recipes! It was kind of fun to glance back at recipes I made throughout the years! We landed on “Sausage Rolls”, and I realized that I had never made these for the kids! So while 90% of the time, we try to eat healthy, it is fun to splurge 10% of the time on a recipe like sausage rolls!! The kids absolutely loved these and can’t wait to have them again!
During this extra time at home, I have been looking through all of my recipes and making some that I haven’t made in years! I remember Briton having these cookies in his lunch in high school when we were dating! These are filled with simple ingredients that you probably have on hand, and they are a family favorite! And yes… even though I don’t like chocolate, I still make them for my chocolate-loving family!
I have had several requests for a closet tour! So I am sharing my tips and tricks on how I keep things organized! I hope it gives you some fresh ideas!
When Briton and I first got married, his mom gave me a recipe book filled with all of his favorite recipes from growing up! Since we are all home more, I have been looking through the book and finding some of our favorites that I haven’t made for years! These frosty strawberry squares are such a refreshing dessert! Ironically, I had never made them for the kids! We made these this week, and they have been a HUGE hit!
