This year it has been hard to “keep it normal” for the kids. For instance, we started this year off in a hybrid model for school, where they only met half the class in person and the other half they only saw on the computer. So between last year and this year, we, as a […]

I feel like you either love candy corn or you hate it. There is no in between… For me, I am totally NOT on team candy corn. But they are fun once in a while to use to make crafts. For these cupcakes, it was more about decorating them than what they tasted like. For […]

When my dad turned 75, we threw him a fun party – mostly NY themed, because that’s where he’s from. He’s not much of a sweets person, so we made him a bagel ‘cake’ with his favorite bagels from Cafe Bagel. You can’t have a NY party without some good deli items, so we used […]

With our family get togethers, I find that while it might be nice to have a home cooked meal, it’s also nice to be able to spend time with your guests, instead of being banished in the kitchen. It’s hard to think of things that everyone would like, but really, everyone in my family can […]
