Why are we experimenting with rice krispie treats? Another one bites the dust…with the flu and we’re bored. Being stuck at home is tough when only one is sick so we decided to experiment and created an easy, yet delicious dairy … Continue reading →
We did a little tweaking and combining to find a recipe we really enjoyed. Not only does L like these but they are filling so it’s a great on-the-go snack. 2 cups Arrowhead mills all purpose baking mix, gluten free … Continue reading →
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner for my gal but we love it. It was Steve’s idea I have to admit. He melts a bowl of goat cheese just enough so it’s spreadable but I just … Continue reading →
Like all parents, I am always searching for (relatively) healthy, QUICK, breakfast options for the kids. I find a recipe for pancake muffins and altered to fit our needs. (The original called for syrup…not in this house.) It was SUPER … Continue reading →
We experimented for a few hours until L finally was super satisfied with the following recipe. 3 Cups Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk 1/2 Cup Coco Powder 1/4 Cup Pure Chocolate Chips I brought the milk to a gentle boil and … Continue reading →
There are many reasons for Damn-it Steve and this is just one small thing. While it seems like I’m just being nit-picky, it truly is time consuming and messy these jelly rolls.
I work on Wednesdays so that lovely day has been deemed “Daddy Fun Day” which simply means “little rules apply day.”
Once again my clever husband has entertained the kids with his new lunch invention of the Jelly Roll. What is a Jelly Roll?
Each girl gets 2 pieces of bread and a roll pin. They roll their bread out super flat, however since they aren’t strong enough to get it Daddy flat, I have to step in and help.
Then they cut off the crusts. The girls with knifes doesn’t bother me- they are butter knifes and they have been spreading their toppings on toast for a year now- it’s that they end up cutting most of the bread off. It leaves a mess and is wasteful.
Next they spread jelly out. This is uber messy; like purple syrup. And in case you didn’t know this is a syrup free home.
This is fine if time permits but usually it doesn’t so I am stuck with the task. It is great because they always eat them and I’ve tweaked the recipe so we leave the crust on; I try to roll with the crust mostly inside so they don’t see.
