Kids love eating and making these fun Jell-O rollups!
This time of year is a great time for fall crafts. (Obviously!) Like making these glitter leaves. Or a leaf wreath. Or, a fall leaf painting with Q-tips. Or stained glass votives. Doing these fall crafts just BEGS to have an accompanying fall treat, doesn’t it? I thought so, too. Something that reflects […]

Jolly Jell-O Roll-Ups



These Patriotic Pops are a super easy treat to make - wet marshmallows, roll in dry Jell-O, and put on a sucker stick!
It’s always fun to have food that ‘matches’ an activity that you’re having. A red, white, and blue treat is wonderful to serve on  the 4th of July — or any other patriotic holiday for that matter. These red, white, and blue patriotic pops fit that bill. Aren’t they cuties? I think so. And are […]

April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. Celebrate it by serving some to your family!
Tuesday April 12 is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. Huzzah! What a great national holiday. I thought that I would let you know about it in the event that you would like to celebrate it with your grandkids. It probably won’t garner quite the same excitement with your grandchildren that […]

A Sweet Easter Treat


I know that some of my recipes that I have shared here might not be considered too healthy. Like the Nutella recipes I recently shared. My Soda Pop Cake. The easy to make hard tack candy.  And all of those gooey popcorn recipes. I almost get a sugar high just […]

Quick and Simple Hummus



Use this recipe to make crepes served with Nutella.
February 5th is World Nutella Day. Since Nutella tastes so divine, this holiday should rank right up there with Christmas. And birthdays. Maybe rank even higher. What do you think? I am here to encourage, insist, assert, and maybe even demand that you do something on this day with your […]

You've just GOT to try this super easy cake that uses only 2 ingredients -- a cake mix and soda pop!
Cooking is a great activity to do with grandchildren. They learn so much — fractions, measurements, how to follow a recipe. (And of course self-control because they have to wait until the food is cooked so they can eat it!) I have a recipe that is super, super easy to […]

Super Easy Soda Pop Cake


Enjoy making this simple recipe for old fashioned hard tack candy. You're kids will love making and eating it!
Growing up, we made old-fashioned hard tack candy. My two favorite flavors were cinnamon and wintergreen. Mmmm, mmmm good! Fast-forward (quite a few years). I made this recipe for our kids. Then, when I started making gingerbread houses, I used this recipe for the windows. And of course I always […]
