Easy Snow Cream Recipe Cooked with Eggs

With Snowmaggedon upon us, I’m seeing all kinds of people post about making Snow Cream on Facebook.

Sample Weekly Grocery Store List – Healthy Food Ideas

Everyone who knows me knows that I love to save money. In fact, I have a slight coupon addiction.

Peanut Free Snack Ideas for Preschoolers

This week I have to buy snacks for my daughter’s preschool class. Every time I go to the store for this, I don’t have a plan because I can’t seem to remember which items have peanuts in them and which ones don’t.

Quick Breakfast Ideas for School Days

So far, my husband has taken them to school more than I have simply because it’s only 1 mile out of his way to work, and preschool starts around the time that he’d normally be leaving […]

I never seem to get around to it, probably because I’m intimidated by the thought of choosing the right fish and proper coating and cooking method, coming up with the right toppings, and finding the time to make it in the evening when my kids […]
