I had so much fun earlier this month making blackberry cobbler for my guest post on another great blog. And when I found out that we were going with a peaches theme for our recipes this week, I knew right away that I’d be making peach cobbler this time. It’s delicious and really couldn’t be easier. And it’s the perfect time of year for peaches – the peaches that I picked up from my local grocery store were just amazing.Continue reading
Kids Play Dough Recipe- Looking for something fun to do with your kids on a rainy day this summer? How about making some homemade playdough? All you need is a few ingredients and about 15 mins and you can make your own playdough! This play dough looks and feels just like the kind you get in the store, and costs very little to make! It’s a great project to make with your kids too!
Step 1: In a medium saucepan, combine water, oil, salt, and cream of tartar. Stir and warm.
Step 2: Add in your food coloring and stir. Once mixture is warm, remove from heat.
Step 3: Add in your flour and stir until you achieve a paste like consistency.
Step 4: Once the play dough has cooled slightly, place on a lightly floured cutting board/cookie sheet and knead until the play dough has formed. Store in a tightly sealed storage container or bag and it will stay fresh for up to 3 months!

What can make pulled pork even better? How about grilled peaches? I have taken my quick to prepare pulled pork recipe and stepped it up a notch by making it a peaches recipe!
I have a couple of recipes for crockpot pulled pork and this easy recipe for crockpot pulled pork. I find that dinner is often a chore so we need to come up with ways to make it fast and fantastic. I recently went peach picking and I had some peaches to spare so that inspired this awesome recipe.
My daughter loves pancakes but some mornings I don’t have time to sit and flip pancakes. This recipe helps me mix it up and let it back while we get ready in the morning. Being able to have my daughter do some of the tasks while I do others make it twice as fast. It tastes extra delicious with the use of fresh in season peaches but off season canned peaches work well.
I was thinking of some creative kids recipes today and stumbled across a really cute recipe on Pinterest, where you made a jello mold using a can of pineapples. I will be honest, that didn’t happen. And you know what? That is ok! This recipe still turned out to be super yummy. (if not a little messy) Sometimes I need a reminder that I am not a perfect pinterest cook, and this was one of them! So I’m going to share the recipe with you, and hope you still like it, even if it isn’t perfect. All you need to make this recipe is a packet of your favorite jello and a can of pineapples!
Step 1: Make your jello according to package instructions. Open your can of pineapples and drain out all of the juice. Pour your jello mixture in the can of pineapples and put them in the fridge for a few hours.
Step 2: After your Jello has had time to firm up, take them out of the fridge and gently slide a knife around the sides of the can and pour the pineapples out. Serve cold and enjoy!
My little girl loved this recipe, and it can be a pretty healthy snack if you grab some sugar free jello!

I’ve really enjoyed being a part of LACTAID’s summer campaign. I’ve learned so much, and I’ve discovered some great new recipes! Back in May, I attended a fantastic webinar with Melissa d’ Arabian, celebrity chef, LACTAID Brand Spokesperson, and author of the NY Times best selling cookbook, Ten Dollar Dinners. The participants learned tons of information about lactose intolerance, LACTAID products, and preparing lactose-free beverages and meals.
On June 25, Melissa d’Arabian appeared on The TODAY Show, where she prepared chicken in a creamy mushroom sauce made with LACTAID Milk. Watch her awesome television appearance HERE!
This is just one of the countless delicious recipes that you can make using LACTAID products – recipes that your entire family can enjoy,whether they are lactose intolerant or not! LACTAID’s official website lists a variety of recipes, including Creamy Garlic Potatoes, Sweet Potato Pie, and Chocolate Banana Pudding Strawberry Shortcake. But I decided to get creative and come up with my own recipe using LACTAID Milk. As I posted earlier this summer, my daughters love smoothies. And I love them because they’re fast and simple – and because it’s easy to hide healthy ingredients in smoothies for picky eaters like my kids.
