Sized-down treats have been all the rage in my kitchen during the pandemic – fewer get togethers mean fewer mouths to feed – and I am so excited to share my current favorite! This cheesecake is the perfect size for a small celebration – and it’s made in the Instant Pot!
A creamy chocolate cheesecake is topped off with fluffy peanut butter frosting and dotted with mini chocolate chips. If you’re a cheesecake lover, you will just love this!
It’s one of the questions I’m asked most frequently these days. I don’t want to jinx anything by being over confident, but so far? I think we’re nailing it.
Sure, there are plenty of frustrating moments. And moments I wish the kids were both in school and I could go to the bathroom without anyone calling for me. But there are so many moments I love and I’m so grateful to be experiencing.
Hands up if you’re trying to make back to school fun!
I know there’s a lot of stress around school this year but I’m trying to celebrate the kick off of another year of education – especially because we’ll be doing this one at home! Yup, we’re officially homeschooling this year.
Not having to go back on the school’s schedule – or with the school’s community – definitely makes things different this year, so I’m making an effort to incorporate some new traditions and treats. And what’s more classic than a cookie bar?
Don’t have an ice cream maker? You can still make fabulous ice cream at home. This no-churn ice cream is so decadent!
This creamy, dark chocolate ice cream is dotted with chocolate chips and a raspberry swirl. My son dreamed up this flavor and it sounded just perfect! I had to make it a reality for today’s virtual ice cream social.
We are knee-deep in strawberry season here and, honestly, it’s one of my favorite food seasons! We’ve already been picking twice, and I’ve put up a batch of jam and a batch of pie filling. We’ve been eating strawberries every day – and I’ve been trying some new strawberry goodies.
These strawberry scones are an adaption of my favorite savory scone recipe. They’re not too sweet, and absolutely perfect with a cup of tea. And, they’re my kick off recipe for this year’s #BrunchWeek!
Do you call these muddy buddies? Puppy chow? Something else?
Around here, we just call them delicious! But, for real, everyone in the family loves them. And I love that this small batch version is the perfect size to whip up for movie night or family game night .
This is also a recipe that’s great for the kids to tackle! Bigger kids will be able to do nearly all of this solo – but there are things that even the littlest kids can help with!
While it definitely won’t be a “normal” summer here, we’re planning to keep up the tradition of patriotic cookouts for Memorial Day and the 4th of July – even if it is just the four of us. I love hanging on the deck with a spread of red, white, and blue food and since it’s social distancing approved, I’m leaning in!
Whether you’re celebrating with just your immediate family or you’re able to gather with extended family and friends, I’ve rounded up some fun red, white, and blue-themed food options for you!
