i am crazy like that

a bit from our easter week...
we had a cookie decorating party with our friends... school friends, ballet friends... it was total mayhem, but we loved it. 

we made easter bags and treats for the easter party at school
bunny crackers, of course and egg cookies were on the menu
  we hunted for eggs... 4 times
 i made some decorations 
 how did i make it?  
jelly beans, stick, styrofoam ball, glue gun, 1 hour and a small bucket
hot glue the jelly beans to the ball, stick the stick into the ball and set up in the bucket {i used homemade playdough to stand it up}

 i covered the bucket with paper to match
 used the same paper to top these mason jars and filled each with candy 
{although i should have glued the lids shut... i couldn't keep my hands out of them}

so, i am crazy like that... i glued every little jelly bean onto that ball and invited 13 kids over to frost and decorate cookies... all for the joy of my children and to see them smile so big.  it was a fun week.


homemade frozen yogurt

it is starting to get warm around here, which makes us crave frozen treats.  
who doesn't love the local frozen yogurt shop?  my budget doesn't.  not only is it expensive, but we have a peanut and treenut allergy that tends to make me a little nervous.  who can truly enjoy a treat with the kids with one hand on the epi-pen?!
like many of our foods - it's best for us to go homemade...
  here is where it doesn't get any easier... 2 ingredients  

32oz. plain yogurt {organic fat free is best, greek is even better}
3/4 cup sugar

whisk together and chill before pouring into the ice cream / frozen yogurt maker.  we use a simple cuisinart ice cream / yogurt maker.  yum.
