Peanut, Peanut Butter…

Posted by on Sep 4, 2014 in Savory, Treats, Tutorials, Uncategorized | 1 comment

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! Hope you have all been having a FANTASTIC week!   It’s been a busy but good one here! I mentioned in my last YouTube video, that we have started eating clean in our household.  This started with me, and trickles to everyone living here because I am the mom. So, anyway- one of our favorite things is peanut butter, but so many companies add sugar or salt or a million other things.  Even the “Natural” brands aren’t always good either.  I am really wanting to be aware of what is going into my body and the bodies of my family. So, I picked up some unsalted peanuts today at the grocery store and decided we would make our own peanut butter, together. Here’s me and Grayson “Gru” leaving the grocery store. (side note: his...

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  I’ve missed a few days here– I took a little girls trip to Vegas & then we have been battling a yucky cold around here.  I am still a little hoarse, but on the mend! It seems like everyone is getting a cold right about now, so something must be going around for sure! We had a lot of fun in Vegas, but I was glad to get home!   Here is a picture of my friend, Sarah and I before going to see Jersey Boys. (Remember me talking about Sarah–she had a baby the same week I did and we crafted this pretty mobile for her little girl) Anyway, Jersey Boys was amazing!  Definitely see it if you have the opportunity.  We had dinner at Mon Ami Gabi which was so delicious, a...

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! Today is my little girl’s first day of 4th grade.  Jaxen won’t start school until Thursday, so I have a few more days home with him….and Grayson, well he won’t start school for a long while.  He says, he just wants to stay home and snuggle me forever and I am okay with that! Anyway, like every year- I make my kids a card for their first day of school, and here is the one for Alexis. Whether she saves these cards or not, is hard to know.  But, I know this blog will still be floating around in cyberspace.  So…. Alexis, I am so proud of the young lady you are becoming.  You are beautiful on the inside and out.  Your kindness and willingness to help others would make any mother proud.  I...

Autumn Wishes Mix

Hi everyone and Happy Monday!  Hope you are having a lovely Fall! I wanted to share something that was a HUGE hit at our house this past weekend.  I even made enough to share with some friends, and they loved it too! I made this Crunch Peanut Butter Mix from Betty Crocker last Fall, but for some reason I am the only one who remembers it.  (Maybe, I didn’t share?)  Anyway, this time around I had my daughter help me- and everyone helped munch on it! It is truly addictive! I did change the recipe a little from good ol’ Betty, but not much. 8 cups Golden Grahams cereal – (the whole small box)  4 cups Cocoa Puffs cereal- (half the box)  4 cups thin pretzel sticks  2 cups Reese’s Pieces (the whole bag)  2 cups dry-roasted peanuts  24 oz white almond bark, chopped  1 cup...
