Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast

Vanilla Brown Sugar French Toast #kidsinthekitchen

Breakfast for dinner is like the greatest idea ever. No one ever moans and groans about that. The thought of gooey syrup or loaded up eggs makes everyone in our house smile. One day this week when my dinner plans fell through we went to plan B, French Toast. But we gave it a spin […]




Double Chocolate Candy Bar Milkshake #TruMooTreats

Double Chocolate Candy Bar Milkshake #TruMooTreats

The candy is about to roll in. Trick or Treating is such a big deal with my  kids. It’s like a competition who can get the most candy. What they don’t seem to understand is they visit the same houses so the quantity is the same. Then when we get home everything goes into one […]

Skeleton Key Shadow Box #craft #upcycle

There was a time recently that I had a little obsession with skeleton keys. Rob got me a really pretty necklace a couple years ago through Etsy and I started collecting them from vintage shops and flea markets. So I had a collection of keys. Now what.

DIY Refrigerator Letter Magnets #kidsinthekitchen

DIY Refrigerator Letter Magnets

My kids are older so we’ve passed the stage of singing letter magnets on the fridge. We still have lots of magnets but we’ve upgraded to ones that have memories, are handmade and do double duty (like hold the school menu). Those “classic” primary color letters don’t really fit our style anymore. What does a […]

When particular holidays and seasons creep up it gets my creative mind going. Halloween is one of them. I love everything about things that are fun scary not gruesome scary. Sugar skulls are part of the Day of the Dead celebration in the Latin American and Mexican culture where family and friends show remembrance for those […]
