Easy bedroom organization for kids

April Fool’s Day – Lasagna for dessert


This is by far the funniest dish. It was quite delish I might add!! This prank dessert was pretty involved- I won’t lie. It took some time to prepare.  No cooking or baking — just many layers of yummy goodness to make it look legit. We loved this as a family. It makes quite a…

April Fool’s Day – Cupcakes for dinner


Can you imagine the look on my kiddlets faces when we served them cupcakes for dinner?!?!  They looked at us all cross eyed.  My kiddlets knew we were cooking dinner and dessert at the same time.

Making sushi at home is quite easy. Its just the preparation that takes up all the time. Also cooking the rice takes a bit of time. But once you have everything ready, putting it together is quite simple. We used a mat just like this. You can find it here – Bamboo Sushi Mat with…

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

My family is a huge french onion soup fan! Almost every where we go- out to eat, we generally want to find out if they make this soup. We tease each other who is going to eat the cheese off the soup bowl if we are sharing. We decided enough is enough. We need to…
