Zuchinni Pizza Boats – Step-by-Step Instructions

Zucchini Pizza Boat Instructions Step 1 – Prepare the Zucchini “Boats” Cut zucchini in half length wise and scrape out any mushy seed insides with a spoon. This gets rid of some excess water so the pizzas aren’t waterlogged when done and also gives you a tidy little spot to place the toppings without having them spill over the side during […]

Zucchini Pizza Boats – Healthy, Delicious Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

The other day, I picked up some zucchinis from the discount vegetable bin at the store. They looked like they would hold up for up to a week in the fridge, so I bought them not knowing what I was going to do with them. I know the kids aren’t big zucchini or squash fans (I wasn’t either until I […]

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. Even though I grew up where we got tons of snow, I had somehow never even heard of snow cream until last week!

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.

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 […]
