The Cutest Peanut Butter Owl Cookies Ever

Owl Peanut Butter Cookies: An easy fall themed cookie that is great for kids to help with and they'll LOVE eating! Aren't these Peanut Butter Owl Cookies, a hoot! Pun, VERY intended of course...

Sweet & Salty: Pumpkin Seed Recipe

I had never had any interest in roasting pumpkin seeds, until my youngest came along and literally eats anything & everything "crunchy." Combine it with a fun activity to do with the kiddos? Golden. Pumpkin Seed Recipe I adore this recipe, because you can make it salty or sweet; depending on the mood you're in! If it were just for me?? I'd probably put a little chili powder on them, to give them a little "kick." But if kiddos are partaking in the snacking, boiling them in sugar instead of salt, and topping with cinnamon and/or brown sugar, may be more up their...

Caprese Grilled Cheese

Remember the other day when I made chili at the drop of a hat because I had family coming over that evening? Well... I gotta say...

Yeah, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (or fried peanut butter and jelly) usually accompanies the chili in our house, but with family coming, I wanted to mix it up a bit. You...
