Today I’m over the moon to be sharing another fabulous batch of the best rainbow-inspired recipes, crafts, and activities that you and your kids can eat, make, and play! Last year, we had 100+ ideas linked up featuring posts on ways to learn about, explore, play with, and eat rainbows – can you believe it? I’m still going […]

{Live} Grilled Cheese: A Childhood Favorite All Grown Up

May 23, 2012 in All Posts, Parenting, Sponsored Posts

One of my distinct childhood memories is climbing out of the club pool from swim team practice at 7 years old, and so looking forward to eating a warm, gooey, grilled cheese sandwich, in my still-soaked competition suit with a beach towel wrapped around my shivering shoulders, while the sun beat down on my chlorinated […]

{Play} Best of Kids’ Rainbow Art, Eats & Activities Blog Hop

April 24, 2012 in All Posts, Play, Toddler Activities

Like I admitted to in our Rainbow Squares Activity post, I’m slightly rainbow-obsessed. In my angst-y teenaged years, I used to be an all-black lover, shunning all shades of the color spectrum, but I’m one hundred percent over that dull phase now. When we first tried doing rainbow activities, Jane did her own thing. One […]

{Bake} Buttery Brown Sugar Blondies

March 20, 2012 in All Posts, Bake

Now, of course I like my baked goods, but this Blondie recipe was a bit too much for my tastebuds. I’m still posting it for you because some of you might be able to handle all the buttery, sugary goodness even if I can’t.  Plus, I like to post my baking experiments, even if they’re […]

{Bake} Easy Shortbread Family Cookies

November 11, 2011 in All Posts, Bake, Celebrate

We visited one of my friends and her sweet newborn baby girl this week and brought these shortbread cookies – one for each member of her new family of five: This recipe (adapted from Gourmet’s) is so easy you won’t even have to break out the mixer.  Dress them up with royal icing clothing or […]

{Bake} Ten Minute Meals | Pasta Frijole

November 4, 2011 in All Posts, Bake

Sometimes I seriously struggle with getting dinner on the table for Hubby and the kids.  While Sam will eat anything, Hubby will eat anything except vegetables, and Jane will eat only vegetables except legumes. And me, well, I eat everyone’s scraps (although I’m supposed to dieting). This super easy Pasta Frijole has been a life-saver. […]

{Bake} The Outlaw Mom (TM)’s Apple Crumble Cheesecake With Caramel Sauce

October 20, 2011 in All Posts, Bake

I’m so excited to be taking The Improv Cooking Challenge with Lady Behind the Curtain this month!  October’s challenge:  a baking or cooking recipe using this month’s two featured ingredients – apples and caramel. If you know me, you know that I loooove caramel apples.  So naturally, I thought of making them for this challenge […]

{Celebrate} Easy Valentine’s Day Cake

February 12, 2011 in All Posts, Bake, Celebrate, Toddler Activities

We made this cake for Hubby’s birthday, but it’s just as easily a Valentine’s Day cake. First, we greased and floured a heart-shaped Wilton pan, which you can easily find at Michael’s or online. One trick to avoiding Crisco-hands is to scoop out the vegetable shortening in a paper towel instead of directly onto your […]

{Bake} Favorite Buttercream Frosting Recipe

February 12, 2011 in All Posts, Bake

This is the BEST buttercream frosting recipe I’ve come across and it’s the same one my mom used for all of my birthday cakes since the ’70s.  It’s my mom’s recipe, but I’m pretty sure it’s basically the Wilton recipe.  This frosting is easy as pie and takes all of 15 minutes.  You’ll love it! […]
