Leftovers are a staple in our household but eating the same thing over and over again can get boring. With the holidays here, leftovers are bound to be in abundance. I have started going through my favorite recipes to find new ways to freshen up those leftovers from Thanksgiving. Using my leftover turkey I remade it into one of my favorite recipes, and the best part is no one needs to know it came from leftovers. My leftover turkey broccoli braid recipe makes a great dish to pass at your next potluck. As you are cooking this wonderful meal though, I’d like to remind you to please do not forget to be burn aware!
It’s easy to get distracted this holiday season, with so much going on and so much to do one simple mistake can cause a fire and burn accident.
Shriners Hospitals for Children Be Burn Aware campaign reminds all of us of simple safety tips that could save lives. They have tips and resources available that we can all check out so we’re sure that our homes and families are safe. You can even test your safety knowledge with a five-minute quiz.
Did you know during the holiday activities can increase the risk of house fires and burns due to more cooking, open flames, and decorations?
Shriners Hospitals for Children recently conducted a survey, and it revealed some habits during the holiday season that could lead to serious injury or even death.
1. Don’t leave lit candles unattended. 27% of U.S. adults surveyed admit to leaving lit candles within reach of children. 2. Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove to keep them out of a child’s reach. 25% of Americans surveyed reported that they don’t take this simple action.
3. When you’re cooking, keep a lid or cookie sheet nearby to put out a potential fire.47% of the people who took the survey skip this simple tip.
4. Water fresh-cut trees daily. 45% of Americans surveyed do not water live Christmas trees every day, even though 70% reported they knew they should. A dry tree can ignite in seconds making this one of the deadliest types of fires!
5. Keep trees away from heat sources like fire places, heaters, and candles.
6. Inspect your lights. Replace any that have kinked or frayed wires.

Kids Halloween Recipes:It’s that time of year again, the time for changing leaves, cooler temperatures, fun costumes, and pumpkins! Fall is my favorite time of year, and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so anytime I see a new fall themed recipe I must try it! This Kids Halloween Recipes: Pumpkin Fluff was SO easy to make and it is absolutely delicious. My little girl has been eating it up since I made it. It tastes like pumpkin pie (but it’s much easier to make)
I am always looking for great tasting recipes that don’t use sugar, as well as a recipe my little one can help with. I am in love with the all natural sweetener Xylitol, not only is it a great one for one substitution for sugar but it always has great dental benefits as well. The great thing about making banana bread is that it is something everyone in the family can participate in–it is just pouring ingredients mixing, and my personal favorite part, mashing the bananas! These are all things that can be fun for your little ones to do and makes it easy for them to participate. Even my little one year old loved that she got to help me mix and mash in this recipe. So here it is–I adapted a few different banana bread recipes to get to my liking, and remember any time you want to use xylitol as a substitute for sugar it is one for one, so you don’t even have to mess with different measurements. This makes it a very simple and quick substitution.
