I am happy to be part of the 2013 Kraft Tastemakers team. This post is part of my continuing commitment to bring family friendly recipes to you that are made from things you’re likely to have in your pantry at most times.  Do any of you remember the Jell-O Pudding Pops from the 80s? I [Read On]

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes (Not made with strawberry flavoured gelatin!)

I find Mother’s Day a surprisingly difficult subject about which to write. I’ve started and stopped this post at least five different ways. I’m a mother (of five boys, thankyouverymuch) and I’m a daughter, and we’re talking about Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes, so what’s the problem? The problem is that there as many views on Mother’s [Read On]

Lemon Cream No-Bake Mini-Cheesecakes

As I type this, spring is actually, kind of, sort of, quite nearly behaving like spring. As in, there’s sunshine and a breeze instead of gunmetal grey skies and a biting wind.

Peanut Butter Molasses Ginger Chews

Sweet and Salty No-Bake Popcorn Cookies | The Croods

I can converse entirely in movie quotes and adaptations thereof when in the company of another movie lover. [Read On]

Grandma’s Snickerdoodles

My family lives, talks, dreams, plans, prepares, preaches, and eats food. We don’t breathe it, however, as aspirating food is generally acknowledged to be a bad idea. In short, we are all food maniacs. There have been a handful of time that I’ve been brought up short when chatting with people and they inform me [Read On]

Homemade No-Cook Instant Pudding Mix | Make Ahead Mondays

We are on the tail end of a two week tour of our household by the flu. The only person who has -thus far- remained unscathed is my germaphobe husband. Don’t get me wrong, I am the original Purell poster girl, but next to me, my hubby is Howard Hughes. The poor guy looks like [Read On]
