Crescent Cinnamon Rolls!

A delicious breakfast, and you don’t even have to go to the airport! It seems to be general knowledge that you should bake cookies if you are trying to sell a house.  The smell of baking cookies evokes a feeling of home.  If you ask me, though, you would be better off making cinnamon rolls….

Unique Blogger Award!

Have you ever had one of those days?  You know the type: nothing seems to be going right, you are in some sort of unidentified funk, and everyone around you notices… I have felt that way for a couple of days.  I feel like I need sunshine, but it’s been to sweltering outside.  But sunshine…

Watermelon Pineapple Ice Pops

So simple…. and so delicious! You guys.  Seriously.  These ice pops…… Ok, so it’s summer in the American Midwest.  If you aren’t familiar with Midwest, let me clue you in.  It’s hot.  I mean, HOT.  Now, I know we’ve got nothing on Arizona or New Mexico in the heat department, but they cannot compete with…

Sunbeam Igloo Snow Cone Maker

The other day, Michelle had an idea.  It was a great idea.  Snow cones. I love snow cones!  When we were in college, there was a snow cone place near campus called Ice Deli where I was regular customer.  Any time it was a nice day, I would strap on my roller blades and head down…

Cherry Blueberry Ice Pops

Who knew cherries and blueberries could be so good? We just got back from a family vacation to the western part of Michigan (specifically Grand Haven and Muskegon).  The kids had a blast.  I’ve been to Lake Michigan before, but I had forgotten how beautiful that area is. Two things Michigan is well-known for are…

Mint Melon Ice Pops

Beat the heat of summer with homemade refreshment! “Daddy, can I have a pockidle?” This is something I hear on an almost daily basis. Maybe some day they’ll learn how to properly say the word “popsicle,” but I’ll enjoy the adorable mispronunciation while it lasts! We always have ice pops in our house (and almost never Popsicle…
