In the last couple of weeks, we have found out that my husband is gluten intolerant. I have been scrambling to make breakfasts that I can cook ahead of time and freeze. I have to come up with meals that my kids and my husband will both like and they have to be easy. They have to be something I can make ahead of time. I headed into Walmart to buy some ingredients for what I hoped would be a special breakfast meal idea. I decided that a pumpkin waffle with yogurt sauce would be the perfect remedy. I will say my children loved the Yogurt dipping sauce so much that they asked me to put the rest in their lunch box with apple slices. This recipe was so successful in my home that I am sharing it with you.Continue reading
I have a lot of memories of Hannukkah growing up. You would think I would remember the gifts, but in actuality, I remember the people and the food. I want my children to grow up with the same fondness for the holiday that I have because of the food. I wanted to teach them how to make sufganiyah or Jewish doughnuts. They are easy to make, and the reward of seeing that jelly covered smile and them licking their fingers are eating them is sure worth the effort.
We spend so much time running around doing how about taking the time to just be. I invite you to make a recipe with your children that will have them take part in the Jewish culture and build a tradition that they will also do with their children.
Halloween is a few days away and if you are looking for a great recipe for your party, then you will love this Halloween Treat Mix Recipe! It’s easy to make, and oh-so-cute! My 5 year old actually chose this recipe and the ingredients! This whole recipe took about 20 minuets and made enough for a crowd. We actually bagged it up and sent it to her class for a fun treat!
Let’s brew up some magic witch potion! You can use anything you have in the frig, I used a can of sprite, Kool Aid mix, bottled water, apple cranberry juice. The trick is disguising these as creepy Halloween concoctions! For the can of sprite: I put it in a black cozy to cover the label & used a sharpie to color the top of the can that still showed. I made a little “goblin spit” label and attached it with scary eye stickers. For the Kool Aid container, I just ripped off the label & used a sharpie to write “Powdered brains”, the same for the bottled water “Bat Venom” & juice “Frankenstein’s Blood”. Tip: any flavor Kool Aid and any type of ‘clear’ pop tastes good together.
Have the kids take turns pouring each one into a pitcher, save the can of pop until last, it’ll create bubbles & a real “witches brew” finish!Continue reading

If you’re like me, Cyber Monday and free shipping help me keep my sanity during the holiday hustle at retail shops. The thought of battling the masses is mind numbing, especially when you can stay at home, have items shipped to your door and still save money! Saving and sanity, sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I recently learned that if I’d have kept that humbug attitude, I would’ve missed out some great savings and some free relaxation! Turns out my trip to Walmart was worth it in more ways than one!
First things first, when I shop at a retail store I’m efficient and frugal. To me, buying in bulk saves me from unneeded trips to the store and helps keep a little holiday jingle in my pocket. Not to mention, preparing for the influx of family makes buying in bulk a necessity! So, I ventured out to tackle my shopping needs when what to my wondering eyes should appear but an awesome opportunity to save money, buy in bulk and be rewarded with some free, relaxing entertainment!
I got my A&W®, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, Sunkist®, Sun Drop®, RC Cola®, Squirt® at my local Walmart for only $1.00! Buying in bulk and saving money, yep, can check that off the list! But wait, there’s more! By buying in bulk and purchasing at least (10) 2- liters or (5) 0.5L 6packs, I received a $5 movie credit at VUDU. This VUDU offer was so simple, just take a picture of your receipt with the qualifying purchases, create an account at VUDU by going here and submit the photo for a $5 credit! Easy peasy!
Then again, it wouldn’t be the season if there wasn’t some Grinchy intervention. It seems inevitable that my shopping list always excludes the one pertinent ingredient for my favorite cupcakes. This is the way to save the day. Did you know the A&W® Root Beer can save the day and create a fantastic treat for you and yours this holiday season? All that you need to do is pour your cake mix in a bowl and pour in the 1 1/2 cups of A&W® Root Beer. I suggest combining the ingredients until well blended. Then add them into a lined cupcake tin and bake according to the directions of your cake mix package.
1 1/2 cup of A&W root beer
1 box of your favorite cake mix
If you want to make your cupcakes a little more festive you will need:
Red Can Pieces
Eye candy or white icing and black icing
1) Ice your cupcakes
2) Apply the circular wafer near the bottom of the cupcake
3) Use a dab of icing to secure the red candy to the circular wafer (As a nose)
4) Place the pretzels on the iced cupcake at the top one on each side
5) Finalize the cupcake with the eyes
Voila! Festive cupcake for a great treat!
This holiday season leave the gray hair and the hustle to the jolly old elf himself. Head to your local Walmart and stock up on A&W®, 7UP®, Canada Dry®, Sunkist®, SUN DROP® , RC Cola® and Squirt®, make some creative treats and cherish the spirit of the season by bundling up by the fireplace with those you hold dear for a relaxing movie! Merry Christmas to all!
