What’s up with moms not getting baby showers after the first baby? I guess that’s a thing, but I think ALL pregnant moms deserve to be celebrated, whether it’s the first baby or the tenth. I have one friend in particular, Jennifer from This Crunchy Life, who is expecting her third baby this summer, and I definitely want to do something fun to celebrate her newest addition!

Easy lunchbox ideas that include lots of fresh fruits and veggies are a mom’s best friend, especially if they don’t require any heating up at lunchtime. The obvious go-to solution is a wrap or roll-up. They’re easy for little hands to pick up and eat, and they’re just plain fun when cut into swirly spirals.

The only problem? I stink at making wraps. Continue reading

It’s #ProjectEnvolve time again! I can’t believe it’s time for Mission 5 already. As usual, we’re still talking about ways to cut energy usage each month and reduce your electric bill. But this month, all I had to do was sit back, relax and let the PE team take care of the heavy lifting! They sent a building analyst over to my house to do a Home Energy Audit. You might be wondering what that is (I didn’t know either…) Continue reading

10 Creative Ways to Use Peeps #Peepsonality

This post about Easter crafts featuring Peeps was brought to you by…Peeps! I received samples to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and 100% honest.

Peeps

You might be surprised to see Peeps popping up here on my page. Yes, we’re a dye-free household, but there’s no denying that some foods – especially seasonal ones – can have tons of nostalgic value. Nothing reminds me of my Dad and my childhood Easter celebrations more than a pack of brightly colored marshmallow Peeps, and honestly it just wouldn’t be Easter without them! So, what do we do? We get crafty!

How to Make a Dye-Free Pink Ombre Cake

I’m a little behind. My baby girl’s first birthday was over a month ago, and I still haven’t written a thing about it here! I’m blaming the snow that threw off our party schedule for 3 weeks.

I did post some photos, though, and I got more than a few questions about her pink ombre cake, so I thought I’d share how I made it. So many parents are avoiding artificial food dyes these days, and it’s so important for us all to know that giving up those chemicals doesn’t mean we have to give up the fun of a brightly colored birthday cake!

For my wee one’s first, I settled on a pretty pink cake in graduated ombre tones, colored entirely with the juice of a beet. Here’s how to do it (it’s easy!) along with some of my favorite cake decorating tips that I picked up throughout my years as a cake decorator. I hope you find them helpful!
