Patriotic Star Garlands



It’s almost the 4th of July, Independence Day in the United States! We have been having a lot of fun with red, white, and blue to celebrate!

Friday Pie-Day: Mango Pineapple Pie



This was one of the more unique pies we have made for our “pie of the month” tradition this year. It was tropical, very flavorful, and rather easy to make. (I need to start rating them by level of difficulty… this was probably 3 or 4 out of 10.)

Monday Meals: Chicken Noodle Soup



There’s a sickness circulating in our house right now, so I thought it appropriate to post this recipe, even though we eat it year round, no matter what our state of health! My mother actually came up with this back in the days when she had 4 little girls running around under her feet, so you know it has to be quick and easy and pretty cheap.

Princess Days: Pocahontas



It's time for another family princess day! And what's "just around the river bend"? 





It’s Pocahontas, of course! A rather weird, transcendental movie, but a musical Disney classic nonetheless.




Our family had a lot of fun with this one, despite all the inaccuracies between the title character and her historical namesake.

Nutella Brownie Bites



I have blogged about brownies before, and as great as those were, these are in a league of their own. Like the aforementioned brownies, they are quick and easy, but they are made of Nutella, so they have their own unique flavor!




There are really only 3 essential ingredients – Nutella, eggs, and flour – but my source added vanilla and chocolate chips too, which I was quite happy to go along with!

Friday Pie-Day: Pineapple Paradise Pie



Put on your tropical shirts and get your tastebuds ready for this beauty – pineapple paradise pie!




We made this in 2011 as our pie of the month. (Aren’t my grandparents adorable?)




You don’t need many ingredients, and it is not very labor-intensive. But it is quite yummy!

Friday Pie-Day: Fresh Strawberry Pie



Here is a very simple recipe for a fresh summery pie! Unfortunately, this was our June pie of the month way back in 2010, so the pictures aren’t that great, but it’s super easy to make!
