Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Chips

Apples and Pumpkins are the epitome of Fall.  I have been searching and searching for an apple recipe to try and I decided to go back to this guy.  Apple Chips have been on my mind for a few months now, but I’ve been so afraid to try to make them!  Why? Because you have to leave them in the oven for so long!  Our house would turn into a sauna and with our erratic schedule, I’d probably have to stop baking or worse…forget about them!  It started to cool off a few weeks ago and I had a bunch of days off from work, so I decided to finally give this recipe a try.

Super Quick Oreo Halloween Treats

I have a super quick and easy Halloween treat for you today.  It’s so easy that your little one can help you make it, and if you flub up no one is going to know the difference. So quick, that if it’s midnight and you forgot to make something for your kids Halloween party tomorrow, this would be your saving grace. PROMISE!

It’s not midnight, but my son’s Halloween event for school is tomorrow.  With me being sick, I procrastinated.  I am on the other hand a super type A person, and I needed something cute, creative, and yummy.  Something that would wow everyone.  Yes, my friends, I am…THAT mom.

I had seen variations of these treats online for some time now, and they seemed easy enough for me to accomplish, so I dove in head first, no recipe.  That’s right friends, NO RECIPE. Continue reading

Island Eats: Via Gelato

Ice cream is probably my dessert weakness. I’ve never really cared for pies, cakes, cookies, or cupcakes, but ice cream…I can never turn it down!  When I was pregnant, I swear I used it as an excuse to eat a bowl every night after dinner, for that I paid two fold.  I got gestational diabetes, and my son is addicted too! (well, sugar in general).  I promise, I was a good mom and I tried to keep anything sweet out of those tiny little hands and mouth, but the sweet tooth is strong in my family.  My mom, aunty, and sister are ALWAYS eating something that can and will rot your teeth, it was no wonder that one of his first experiences with cake was with my crazy family!
