Easy Edible DIY Pudding Paint

I was trying to come up with a gift to give my husband. The very first thing that popped in my head was a painting!!!! This was a fabulous idea… there was only one issue. My child puts EVERYTHING in her mouth! I wasn’t about to let her paint with store bought paints.

Cinnamon French Toast

Most mornings, I barely pull it together to pour some milk and cereal into a bowl and then there is THOSE mornings… You know? The ones after getting 6 full hours of sleep the night before.

Homemade Organic Applesauce and Apple Juice

When I set out to make my daughter’s baby food I had no idea how much I would enjoy it. She’s completely off purees now and I still miss it! I never built up a large stock of baby food in the freezer just so that I could spend that time in the kitchen peeling, baking, steaming, boiling, and blending.

Guinness Braised Corned Beef & Cabbage With Bonus Recipe

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, which has me feeling all things Irish. It is nearly impossible to go out and drink bright green beers with small kiddos, so now we celebrate as a family with all the Irish eats. As an old Irish Proverb says, “laughter is brightest, where food is best,” and I couldn’t agree more. I’d much rather sit around the table eating a great meal with my family, opposed to a day out on the busy downtown streets. And this meal really is the best! I combined some Irish food favorites with Guinness to create a Guinness Braised Corned Beef With Cabbage recipe. Guinness has such a deep and rich flavor which pairs perfectly with corned beef!
