Edible Peeps Houses

When I looked outside this morning I saw something I haven’t seen in about 2 or 3 months, sunshine! What a beautiful site! The sunshine got me in the mood to make a fun Easter Project to share with all of you! My daughters absolute favorite Easter (or really, any other time of year) candy are Peeps! What’s not to love about a sugar covered marshmallow in cute little shapes right!?

So over the weekend we made these super cute Edible Easter Peeps Houses that would be perfect for a fun and easy Easter Project to make with your kids. My daughter had a great time making (and eating) her Peeps House! Lets check out how to make it:

Here is how to make these DIY Edible Easter Peeps Houses:

You Will Need:

  • Peeps!
  • Graham Crackers
  • Frostings
  • chocolate (or jellybean) eggs
  • Shredded Coconut
  • Green food coloring

First, you will grab your gram crackers and break them in half. You will need 6 piece total. Using your frosting construct your house. (1 for the bottom, 2 for the sides, 1 for the back, and 2 for the top).

Next, When your house is complete it will look like the one above. Let dry. before messing with it. (Trust me, if you get impatient and try to add stuff to it before it’s dry it will fall and make you really sad.)

Then, pour some of your shredded coconut into a bowl and put a few drops of green food coloring into the bowl and mix. This will be the grass for your peep to sit on!

Finally, Sprinkle some “grass” on the bottom of your peeps house and decorate with candy eggs, and of course don’t forget to add your Peeps! Don’t they look cute!?

Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Easy and so delicious banana nut bread recipe. You can make this in the oven or even in the pressure cooker. It's a moist banana bread recipe that's so delicious kids love it!

My daughter begged for a huge bunch on bananas last week, with promises that she would eat every single one of them. Well, 6 days later, guess what? We had 4 very ripe bananas left, that were not going to get eaten. I hate wasting money so I had to think of something to do with them! It occurred to me that I have never tried to make banana nut bread! 

Now I have to admit something, I am NOT a baker. I don’t have a fancy mixer (although I do stare at them longingly in the store..) and I love my cakes from a box. When I looked up banana nut bread recipes a lot of them called for “cutting in cold butter” and other things that just weren’t going to work for me, and I got to thinking that it probably doesn’t for a lot of other people either, so I wanted to share this Super Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe with you guys! It takes about 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes in the oven, that’s it!

A super easy to make banana nut bread recipe that everyone loves. It's moist and not dry. This banana bread recipe can be made without nuts for people with allergy.

Homemade Liquid Hand Soap

We are constantly using handsoap in our house. It seems like every week I am replacing the one in the bathroom and kitchen.

Since I love the Bath and Body Works foaming handsoap this added up very fast. So I switched to buying the large refill container but I could only find the foaming refill at Target. This too added up cost wise and so I figured I would try the dollar store. Well it turned out to really dry out our hands so I was spending the saved money on lotion.

Determined to find a way to have my foaming soap at a cheap price, I searched the internet and decided to make my own handsoap.

Homemade Liquid Hand Soap

I had saved 2 of my foaming soap dispensers so they were ready to be reused. The best part is that it only requires bar soap and water. I prefer scented soap so I used Yardley Lemon Verbena soap. The soap was on sale at Kroger for $1.00 each so the total cost to make this was $2.00 for 160 ounces of soap (approximately 20-8oz liquid bottles or 80 bottles of foaming)
