I know it's a hard to believe but it can be a challenge to get the munchkin and my husband to scarf down healthy food. No one else has this problem right?? As a result I'm always on the lookout for good-for-you recipes that are easy to make and have my guys asking for more. These black bean & sweet potato taquitos are an example of one such recipe. The munchkin and my husband actually played rock-paper-scissors for the last taquito.
This morning we took the munchkin to see Disney's 'Frozen' and if you're on the fence about this movie it's definitely a must see. From brave heroines and fun side-kicks, to catchy music and positive messaging, we all loved this film. I'd say it ranks right up there with the best of Disney's movies.
With just the right amount of sweetness, these cookies have a wonderful chewy texture thanks to a generous amount of semisweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate toffee bits. I pretty much guarantee you won't be able to eat just one.
It's the day after Thanksgiving and my husband is off from work, which means this morning he had time to make one of our favorite breakfasts: caramelized apple pancake. The munchkin goes nuts for the cinnamon-sugar glazed apples atop a fluffy pancake - because really, who wouldn't?
With Thanksgiving just a few days away I thought it'd be fun to share some things we've been doing to get the munchkin thinking about thankfulness. Gratitude is a big concept and it can be a little abstract for young kids, but there are still simple ways to get them thinking about the blessings in their lives.
