Fresh Strawberry Crispy Treats

Bunny Poops & Bunny Tails!

Do-it-yourself snacks for those Easter baskets! Fill snack-sized plastic zipper bags with 1/2 cup cocoa puffs for “Bunny Poops”, or 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows for “Bunny Tails”. If you’re buying a fresh bag of marshmallows, you may want to spread them out on a paper plate and let them air-dry for about 30 minutes; they tend to clump together in sticky lumps if you put them in the zipper bag too fresh (learned the hard way).

B-MO Valentine! (with Printable PDF)

If you haven’t already guessed, we love Adventure Time! So, (like the crazy person I am) I suggested to Gunner that we use the papercraft Beemo from the Cartoon Network website that he loves so much. He said, “Yeah! And we can make him red!” … and it all spiraled from there.

Recipe: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

My mother got this recipe many years ago from a childhood family friend of my father’s named Mina Newton (one of those “like an Aunt, but not really” situations). I’ve never been a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but these are so soft and chewy and tasty that I can’t resist! These are my husband’s favorite, so I usually double the recipe to make enough to last a while.

Recipe: Pickle Wrap Dip

My most favorite contribution to parties and get-togethers! My mom used to make pickle wraps for when her-side-of-the-family would come over to our house at Christmas. If you’ve never had a pickle wrap, I feel very sorry for you. This dip is basically chopped up pickle wraps, and although it’s not quite as good as real pickle wraps, it is a great and tasty time-saving substitute that everyone seems to enjoy.
