Savory & Sweet Popcorn Cones – A fun snack for families!

My kids are always on the hunt for snacks. As you can see on my blog lately, I have a lot of snack ideas for kids. They especially love to have a snack when we are doing family activities, like watching a movie, playing a game or going to the zoo. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and provide the same boring snack, but there are other times that I like to go all out and let them have a fun snack that’s easy to make!

These savory & sweet popcorn cones are one of those times where their snacking is made more fun! A good friend of mine actually gave me this idea– she said her grandmother would give her a popcorn mixes in an edible ice cream cone and she absolutely loved and cherished those times her grandma did that. I thought that was so sweet and such a genius idea, that I had to do it myself. She totally didn’t mind that I duplicated and added my own twist, so thank you for that Jess… you rock! read more

Honey Hunt Cookies & The Berenstain Bears Cookbook Review

I was given this cookbook to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own!

My girls are both at the age where they like to help with things in the kitchen. With some of my recipes, it’s hard to allow them to help me because I am so focused on the task at hand and wanting to get it done so quickly, so I don’t really let them help. As a mother, I definitely want them to get skills in the kitchen, because I know that’s so important! Since there’s such an age gap between the two girls, I want to be able to give them recipes that they can both do together, not only to bond with me, but with each other! read more
