There are so many things to love about traveling to Vermont. My family has taken many fall trips to the state and love the scenic drive with fall foliage and quaint New England towns along the way. We always talk about the Maple Biscuits we have enjoyed at August First bakery and every time we visit, they are always on the list for Saturday morning breakfast. We have been experiencing some cold and very rainy days here in Connecticut and I felt like baking something to enjoy straight out of ... Continue Reading

Snow That Mom Will Allow You To Eat: Cinnamon Chip Snowball Cookies

Excuse the interruption in your 2018 healthy eating schedule, but with all the snow days my kitchen helper and I have been dealing with it was time to get creative in the kitchen. Cinnamon Chip Snowball Cookies sounded like a perfect way to start. First, I received cinnamon chips as a Christmas gift this year. I know that sounds crazy, but since I cannot find them in any stores near me, I am forced to buy in bulk online, so it was a nice specialty item to receive for our 2018 baking season. ...

Homemade Valentine Day Gummies (+ Printables)

Valentine's day is always filled with candy, but luckily my kitchen helper's pre-school has a non-candy policy for this holiday. He recently started enjoying gummies that were provided as a special snack in this classroom, so when I started to think of a fun Valentine's Day treat for his classmates a homemade option came to mind. Strawberry is my kitchen helper's favorite flavor and although I wish I still had bag of frozen strawberries from all our summer strawberry picking trips, I ended ... Continue Reading
Sausage Veggie Lasagna

Guest Feature: Sausage and Vegetable Lasagna

Last week, we experienced a “Bomb Cyclone” on the East Coast. True to its name, it wreaked all kinds of havoc on our daily schedules, flight cancellations, road closures, and burst pipes. But some nice things came out of it too. On Tuesday, the deep freeze prompted county officials to delay the start of school for two hours. So, despite the mayhem of “Bombogenesis,” I felt rested. On the morning of the school delay, as I was writing the condensed schedule on my whiteboard, I remarked ... Continue Reading

Baking With Friends: Applesauce Oatmeal Bread (+ Video)

Quick breads are always a huge hit with my kitchen helper and when I saw this recipe for Applesauce Oatmeal Bread I knew I had to try it. It was an instant success and I have made it about a dozen times since. Not only is this bread delicious, it's a perfect recipe to make with more than one kitchen helper, which is exactly what we did during a recent play date. One of my kitchen helper's classmates was over and loves to bake as well. This recipe has a perfect division of labor, as seen in the ... Continue Reading
Soft Pretzel Bites

Snack Time Upgrade: Whole Wheat Soft Pretzel Bites

Pretzels are a great go-to snack for both kids and adults. This salty snack was first introduced in America when German residents started settling into Pennsylvania in 1710. The first commercial pretzel bakery was founded here by Julius Sturgis in 1861 and up until this time all pretzels were soft pretzels until he over baked a batch of pretzels by mistake. He found that the new hard pretzel lasted longer and could be shipped further. Pennsylvania still produces 80% of US made pretzels today ... Continue Reading
Healthier Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A Healthier Spin On A Classic: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Finding a healthier alternative to your child's favorite snacks can be tough. My kitchen helper happens to love oatmeal raisin cookies, which many would think are healthy. Although there are some healthier parts to the cookie, many of the recipes can contain a lot of sugar. I wanted to bake him the cookie that he loves, but change up some of the ingredients.  First I replaced all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour, white sugar with coconut palm sugar and the egg with unsweetened applesauce. ...

Learn How To Organize Your Pantry From A Food Blogger

Happy New Year! It's 2018 and it's a great time to organize. My first task was to tackle my "pantry". Although I dream of a walk-in pantry one day, that's not my reality at the moment.

This post will focus on just that, flours and sugars and with the help of Cambro commercial containers, you will be ... Continue Reading
