Valentine’s Day peanut butter cookies

Valentine's Day peanut butter cookies
(February 13, 2014) Yesterday I got those Peanut-Butter and Chocolate Heart Cookies from Mama Miss in my inbox and right away I knew I had to make them. For every holiday we give something homemade to our chiro that saved my life (she really did) and I knew those were “it”. Now we hunted high and low (ok, it was one store) for heart-shaped chocolates, but could not find any, so we settled for some Cadbury Buttons and used little heart sprinkles to make them more “Valentine-y”.

(Feb. 12, 2014) We’ve played in cloud dough several times before but not since we’ve moved back to Calgary.  This time we made it to go with the 12 month challenge/series we are part of, which is a new sensory dough a month for a year! So we added a few elements this time ;)

Jamaica – Baked & fried festivals

Baked Jamaican festivalsAround the World in 12 Dishes(February 3, 2014) Yah-man – we are traveling to Jam-eh-ca (must be Canadian, no?) and having ourselves some festivals! No, we are not celebrating or partying, but one of the Caribbean island’s favourite snacks, which often are served either as a dessert or as a side with some ackee and saltfish or many other uses. We had seen these on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, so we went out to search for an actual recipe and you have no idea how hard it is when all you get is information about festivals of different kinds that happen to take place in Jamaica… If you, though, want to make it a Jamaican party at your house, here are our colouring placemat and passport for the island!

Valentine’s Day cornstarch decorations (with glitter)

Valentine's Day cornstarch decorations (Jan. 4 & Jan. 10, 2014) After Christmas was done we decided to keep one of the small trees out and decorate it according to the different holidays or seasons going on. Our first holiday after Christmas is Valentine’s Day! Our first craft for our tree had to be what I saw on the NurtureStore around Christmas time, a DIY clay heart bunting! I just loved the look of it and knew I had to find some reason to try it, this was the first chance I had to do so.

Inside out spaghetti meatballs

Spaghetti Meatballs w2(October 9, 2013) Have you asked yourself before, how can I take spaghetti and meatballs, one of the most classic of combinations in food, and make it even better? Well you may have not, but we figured that we could take it one step further and fully unite them into one – the Inside out spaghetti meatballs. Unite, you ask? Yes, by putting the spaghetti INTO the meatball! Sounds crazy? Maybe, but it works and it is very easy and very tasty to boot!
