Picnic Tea

It was a beautiful February, mid morning, with temps in the high 70s with a wonderful cool breeze.  Where I am from this is called perfect weather. My seven year old twins were running around having a good time. On a spur of the moment I suggested we go on a picnic tea! Whoops of […]

S’more Kebabs

smore kebabs

S’more kebabs are super easy to make and kids (and adults alike) love them! They are great as a tea party favor or even served as a dish during your tea party. I personally would not make them during a tea party with small children unless you have enough adult supervision since heat is involved. It […]

Orange Hibiscus Iced Tea

Orange Hibiscus Iced Tea

Orange hibiscus iced tea is tangy and refreshing and it is a cinch to make. We had our batch ready in less than 30 minutes! Be careful when handling hibiscus tea (or the discarded flowers after you have made your brew), the red liquid can stain! Dried hibiscus flowers not only makes a delicious herbal […]

Valentine S’mores on a Stick

S’mores are a traditional American treat. They are usually made with roasted marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers. I had never heard of them until I came to the States. S’mores are a traditional “around the camp fire” type of dessert. My kids love them when they make a bonfire. These Valentine s’mores on a stick are […]

You certainly can replace the strawberries with another fruit: cherries, raspberries, blueberries, even peaches!       Strawberry Vanilla Cake: Ingredients 1 […]

I have mentioned before that around Christmas we watch “White Christmas” while eating popcorn. It is a yearly tradition. This double chocolate caramel popcorn is one of our favorites. We used to buy a popcorn called Zebra popcorn at Costco but we started to make our own flavored popcorn rather than buy it. This recipe […]

 Tea pots are not just made to hold tea, they can be work of art…elegant, dainty, colorful, unusual, and just plain entertaining. I found a lot of beautiful Spring themed tea pots (and tea kettles) on the internet and decided to share them with you. All sources for the pictures are listed at the bottom […]

Kettle Corn Recipe

Caramel Corn Recipe

My husband loves kettle corn. If we go to an event where they sell caramel corn, he buys some (or I buy some for him).  Personally, I love the look of the big ‘cauldron looking container’ most vendors use to make that delicious popcorn. I guess now that I think of it, it is probably not a […]

Double Chocolate Mint Fudge

I made this double chocolate mint fudge as a gift to family and friends for the holidays. My 11 year old told me this yummy fudge resembled peppermint bark which happens to be one of his favorite Christmas treats, so that’s a good thing. It’s rather simple to make and it doesn’t take very long. The longest […]
