Easy Christmas Treats For Kids

Easy Holiday Treats  Holiday Treats you can make WITH your kids  My kids love being in the kitchen with me! Especially my 5 year old daughter. I can rarely be in the kitchen alone. If they see me in the kitchen they pull up a chair and want to help! So making snowman and other fun holiday treats I almost always have helping hands which translates to not always perfectly placed items or precise lines. But in return the memories of being in the kitchen together! Here are a few of our families favorite holiday treats! Snowman Donut Snowman Reindeer …

Milk and Cookie Shots

When I think about New Years Eve recipes I wish it was some glamorous thing! But as a mom of 4 young kids New Years Eve is more about banging pots and pans, blow horns, family friendly food, and trying to make it until the ball drops! So when asked to create a New Years Eve recipe these cookie and milk shot glasses came in mind! These can be filled with all kinds of stuff and are fun for the entire family! My kids (and a few neighbor kids) went crazy over these! Milk and Cookie Shots  1 box Krusteaz …

Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Pie

I obviously have a hard time letting pie go after Thanksgiving. But as much as I enjoy a good slice of pie I enjoy a good slice of freezer pie even more. My kids feel the exact same way! I also love pairing a good freezer pie with a yummy cookie crust. And nothing pairs better in my mind than chocolate and peppermint to celebrate the winter holidays! I let my son be the first taste tester of this pie and he said it was the better after school snack ever! And is now going to be a staple at …
