Well my niece is now allergic to just about everything under the sun so we have had to modify the way we cook when having family get togethers. Soy, rice and potatoes are all on the list. When you start reading labels, you quickly find just how much soy, rice and potato is in EVERYTHING! Thank goodness for Coconut Oil. I decided to do some sweet potatoes as our side and used coconut oil to fry them up. She ate them plain but I kicked ours up a notch! Check out my Coconut Fried Sweet Potatoes with Apple!...
Why is it everything is better on a stick? Put fruit on a plate, your kids ignore it… put fruit on a stick and you are the best mom ever! So why not step it up one more notch and not only put it on a stick but freeze it too! So many fruits can be turned into fun popcicles, but Frozen Watermelon Pops are by far my favorite and the prettiest too. Freezing brings out the sweetness and it is just so refreshing. Your kids will eat these up real quick (or mom can use them as ice cubes in her cocktail…Shhhh)!
I recently had a chance to try and review (and to give away) some Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil. I have many friends who have tried this and have been raving about it, so of course, I jumped right on board and ordered up my sample. Wow!

Christmas is fast arriving and so is the kids Winter Break. We need all the help we c an get keeping the kids occupied, so we are always looking for easy crafts that can be done by the kids. This personalized sleigh craft is so much fun for even the young ones and so easy too. Not to mention uber cheap.

Maybe you did this as kids. Decoupage? Well, we did it as kids but I just thought of it as gluing paper, lol! So today, once again, I am applying the skills I learned in Elementary School to a more sophisticated project. A decoupage reindeer craft that is both easy and fun. You can even get your kids to do this one for you!
