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

Snack time is probably our favorite time of each and every day around my house. The kiddos are constantly asking for a snack, so that means that I have to have plenty on hand at all times. I would say that most of my grocery budget goes towards crispy, crunchy snacks, and I am sure I am not the only mother in the world who feels that way, amiright? 🙂

crunchy popcorn mix #crispycomeback #adOne of our favorite snacks is homemade popcorn. I purchased a stovetop popcorn popper and I absolutely love it! It makes the most tasty popcorn in a short amount of time. Not to mention, it’s cheap! This go around, I wanted to spruce our popcorn snack up a bit with a variation of flavors, both salty, sweet and crispy, so I made this popcorn mix that is DELICIOUS! I have always loved putting M&M’s® in my popcorn, and thought adding it to this concoction would be perfect! read more

Cruncy Protein Balls #QuakerUp #LoveMyCerealI am going to be completely honest with you all here…. 2014 has kicked my behind! For me, life has been 100 times more hectic since bringing our 3rd little blessing in the world at the beginning of the year. Now don’t get me wrong– I am COMPLETELY happy and blessed, but adding a third child in the mix did quite a job on our  schedule, my energy, and more. Now that he is almost a year old, I am starting to feel back to my normal self (I also just recently had surgery to remove my galbladder, so I know that doesn’t help the craze that is my life, but it is what it is!), and  starting to get in a routine that works for all of us. read more
