A few weeks ago, one of my friends hosted a freezer-friendly breakfast food swap. Everyone made up a big batch of something and we split them all up so everyone went home with a stock of grab-and-go breakfasts for their freezer. It was pretty genius.
It also introduced us to breakfast cookies. And now that we’ve been introduced, we’re here for the breakfast cookies.
It’s strawberry season here! The kids and I spent yesterday morning at one of our favorite local farms picking a whole flat of gorgeous berries – so now we’re making everything strawberry.
Do you want to take bets on how many things I can stick strawberries in over the next few days?
Next up in the movie snack series: Aladdin, and this loaded hummus plate!
Aladdin was one of my favorites as a kid, so I was really excited to introduce it to the littles. It was a trickier one to plan a snack for, though, since there isn’t many food references in the movie to work off of!
Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! As the mom of two kids who treat PB&J as a food group, I knew I had to make something fun to mark the day.
These Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins are the perfect treat for PB&J day!

I’m switching gears a little bit today to bring you a fun spring treat that’s also healthy!
These fun popsicles are made with Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt – which make them a great snack anytime, especially for kids!
Did you know it’s National Peanut Butter Day? It’s pretty much always peanut butter day around here.
Honestly, I’m always baffled by how much peanut butter I buy – but I do understand it. It’s such a crowd pleaser! My kids (and husband) are happy to eat it whenever, wherever – which makes this quick and easy breakfast a family favorite.
Cranberry Orange muffins are my favorite. I love cranberry and orange together, and this time of year always feels like muffin weather. Curl up with one of these and a hot beverage and you’ve got the perfect fall treat.
These are an easy one to mix up and I love that it makes a relatively small batch – great for a small family brunch.
The flavors are bright. Orange juice and orange zest make the batter a sunny color, and the fresh cranberries add a great tart bite to these. I love these fresh out of the oven, but you can also pop them in the oven or toaster to warm up the next day and they’re also fabulous.
I’m excited to be sharing this recipe as part of Cranberry Week – now in it’s third year! See all the tasty cranberry recipes being shared today below and follow #cranberryweek on social media for more ideas all week long.
