  • Getting ready for Easter

    Date: 2014.04.14 | Category: crafts, parenting | Response: 1

    The kids are getting old enough that they REALLY enjoy doing messy crafts and seasonal crafts and crafty crafts.  And I’m always dragging my feet thinking… I hate messy crafts!  Easter isn’t about eggs and chicks and bunnies!  The prep work… the clean up… I’m too lazy!

    Anyway, this weekend we did two (yes!  TWO!) Spring/Easter crafts and it actually wasn’t even awful.

    The two older kids and I dyed Easter eggs- they particularly enjoyed the trick where we drew on the egg with a crayon first and then the picture was revealed when we dyed it.  We made an egg with each kid’s name, I drew a few bunny faces, Katie made a happy face and some polka dots.  They turned out cute!  Once the eggs were dry, all three kids enjoyed adding stickers to the eggs.

    All three kids also really enjoyed making little pretzel chicks.  We had some orange colored “chocolate chips” leftover, so we melted those and then I poured them over pretzel twists.  We added orange and black sprinkles to make beaks and eyes and legs.  This little endeavor turned out messier than I expected, and the chocolate hardened too fast to decorate them all, and James kept picking his up before they were hard and dripping orange goo everywhere, and blah blah blah.  One or two turned out cute and the kids were happy and they were pretty yummy, so I guess in the end it was a success.

    PS- happy April 14 from sunny Colorado!

  • Chris’ Yummiest French Toast

    Date: 2011.07.21 | Category: recipes | Response: 0

    Chris makes THE BEST French Toast I have ever had.  Seriously.  Hands down.  And it turns out he has a secret ingredient.  Are you ready?  Coffee Mate.  Yes, as in the creamer.  I know it may sound funny, but you have to try it to believe it.  It is so good!

    1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread
    6 eggs
    3 TBS Vanilla or Vanilla Caramel Coffee Mate
    2 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp cinnamon

    Heat electric fry pan to 350.  Mix eggs with creamer, vanilla and cinnamon.  Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture to coat and then place in fry pan coated with PAM.  Cook until lightly brown then flip and cook until the other side is brown.  Serve warm with butter, syrup, peanut butter or powdered sugar to suit your tastes!  Leftovers refrigerate and reheat well- if you have any!


  • Crescent Roll Quiche

    Date: 2010.09.12 | Category: recipes | Response: 4

    8 eggs

    1 can cream of mushroom (or other cream of soup)

    1 cup shredded cheese

    1 cup diced ham

    1 cup chopped spinach

    1 package crescent rolls

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×13 baking dish and spread crescent rolls in bottom.  Mix all other ingredients and pour over crust.  Bake 1 hour 10 minutes or until eggs are set.

    (The crescent rolls give this quiche a wonderful buttery flavor and the cream of mushroom soup adds a nice richness too!  You could easily add more eggs and ingredients for a thicker quiche to serve more people, just increase your baking time accordingly.)
