Baking those cookies!

I had to giggle a ton when making cookies tonight with my three daughters. Delilah, my toddler, knows the general idea behind making cookies and was totally excited to get in on the fun. The only problem? she didn’t want to wait to mix everything together. She grabbed a spoon and went straight to scooping

I have been really missing having an oven to bake in. My stove and most of my families house hold items are in storage. 🙁 I found a Black & Decker 4-Slice Toaster Oven on sale for almost 50% off the near 40 dollar price tag. I had over 15 dollars in gift cards for

Before I could even start making breakfast my husband starts making buckeyes! I wasn’t sure exactly what they were and he was like “I use to love you!” all jokingly.  So he shows me a picture of what they look like and to me its a round peanut butter cup. I helped him mix the
