Chex Granola Bars

Chex Granola Bars

Homemade granola bars are easy to make and they are great because you get to control the ingredients! I have been making homemade granola bars for years. Yes, you can buy a box in the grocery store, but homemade ones are so much better because you can control the ingredients and make them just the way you like them. Now, I am not saying these […]

I took pictures of this peanut butter free muddy buddies, aka peanut butter free puppy chow, months ago, but never shared it.

Enjoy Life Seed and Fruit Mix

My family was recently sent a few bags of Enjoy Life’s Fruit and Seed Mix to try. Now, I will admit that trail mix type food is not something I really miss. There are times like when traveling that it would be nice to have, but it was not really something that I craved. However, when my daughter with the peanut, tree nut allergy opened […]

Lemon Buddies

In our house we seem to go through more snacks during the summer than we do during the rest of the year. Does anyone else have this problem? There is something about playing hard outside, working in the garden, the kids swimming, and just the general business of summer that makes my kids think they are starving all the time. I usually offer them healthy snacks like […]

Homemade Chocolate Covered Raisins

My kids are almost always hungry, especially my eight year old son, so I am always trying to find snacks that are healthy and  inexpensive to make. Does anyone else have this problem with kids and snacks? These homemade raisins don’t exactly fit into the healthy category, but they are semi healthy, and are better than sitting down to eat a cookie or a handful of potato chips. And […]

Apple Nachos

This recipe is adapted from an Apple Nacho Recipe I saw in a recent Taste Of Home magazine. However, I really adapted the recipe and made it much more simple. The original recipe had you making your own caramel sauce, which you could do, but I took the easy way out and opened a jar of caramel topping and my kids never knew the difference. […]

Gluten Free Nut Free Snacks

It can be very challenging to find gluten free/nut free snacks and desserts that kids enjoy. Not only are they hard to find they are expensive to buy. I have found the best solution is usually to make them at home. By making it at home I not only save money, but I know that it is safe to eat. Caramel Chex Mix is a favorite snack […]

Easy Guacamole

My husband has been telling me for a while that I should post this recipe. I kept telling him that it is not really a recipe. I told him that this was so quick and easy that no one would care about how I do this. But every time we ate this he would ask, “Have you posted this?” I finally realized that he thought I […]
