Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cereal Treats

Oh mylanta.  My friends from General Mills, sent over a box of Limited Edition Strawberry Cheerios to me the other day.  After staring at the box for 10 minutes with excitement, we decided it was necessary to whip up something chocolate-related, to go along with them.  You know, because chocolate covered "strawberry," just makes sense. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cereal Treats Using the Cheerios to make a similar "rice krispy treat," they turned out exactly like we had hoped. We loved the idea of making them as "pops," so they were even more fun to eat! Simply insert a popsicle or sucker stick...

Remember my banana bread recipe that went viral on Pinterest?  On average, we probably make this about once a month in our home.  My kiddos eat about a banana-a-day, but somehow we always end up with bananas that are a little too brown to eat by themselves.

Vintage Christmas Party

Oh how fun this Vintage Christmas party would have been.   Yes... I said, "Would have been." :( One of my kiddos came down with a fever a couple of days before our annual Santa Night Party this year.  Unfortunately, his little body can't handle fevers like some others can.  He's one of the not-so-lucky ones that suffer from febrile seizures.  The morning before our party date, he once again had a seizure, and once the craziness calmed down... I immediately sent out notifications to our friends, letting them know that we had to cancel the party for this year, so we...
