I’m in charge of snacks for the party after the parade. I know with kids there are lots of food restrictions […]




Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Butterscotch Cookies #kidsinthekitchen

When fall rolls around the tastes for snacks and treats change. When it’s time for dessert its usually fewer requests for ice cream but more for gooey brownies. After School Snacks are now warm or spicy or sometimes a little of both like these oatmeal raisin butterscotch cookies. With a big dose of cinnamon and […]




Sweet & Spicy Garlic Chili Chicken #recipe

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #kidsinthekitchen

Afterschool snacks tend to be healthy and on the small side so they don’t interfere with dinner.

I honestly think these are better than traditional […]
