Cactus Banana Pops


Happy Friday!  I shared in a post earlier this summer that we're having a very flower filled summer and "a cactus" feels like a fun way to round it out. I think eating should be fun, don't you, too? When sharing today's treat, I feel like it should be tagged, "Are you ready to play?" 

Join us to create together or set the kids loose for making on their own and make CACTUS BANANA POPS. Since it's Friday, I thought it was a perfect way to get this weekend going!

3 cheers for Edible Art (that's on the heathy side, too!) and creating together.

Surprise desserts in the shape of a cupcake


"Burger, Burger, come and get your hamburgers, here!" 
Ready for some yummy fun? Today, we're sharing Sweet treats: Hamburger Cupcakes."  

These Hamburger Cupcakes made their way into our house "via the boys" but, now, but we've cooked the idea to make Dad a "triple decker" treat. We're planning to add this to our "Papa Picnic" this coming week.  Is it Father's Day near you?

These Hamburger Cupcakes were much easier to make than I ever imagined and they look so much like the real thing, it's  astounding.

Simple Skorpor Recipe



Today, I'm sharing a Classic Swedish Breakfast or Treat: Cinnamon Skorpor.

I have to confess: this is a 1/2 recipe, 1/2  trick;  but it works perfectly for delicious Skorpor when feeling short for time (or not, because they're always good.)

DIY FELT YEAH BANNER



"Y-E-A-H,  June!"

"Y-E-A-H, Graduates!"

"Y-E-A-H, Visitors"

"Y-E-A-H" for so many things!

June's making us feel all happy and has brought so much action already.  We've had multiple uses for this expression and these banners. What started off as "just" banners became Graduation Cards when I realised that I could make these to fit neatly in an envelope with confetti and a tag.   (I love dual purposed cards, don't you? (like these + these)  

There is no sewing here so these can be whipped up in 5 minutes. Jump with us below and we'll share how you can make these, too!

POPSICLE ART IS THE BEST KIND OF ART



Hi friends,

Who knew that popsicle in your freezer could be the canvas for your next masterpiece? Delicious, nutritious, and so cute to look at – they’re the yummiest ways to unleash your inner artist!

I’ve always said (and I’m sure I’ll say it again) that I have a very hard time distinguishing between the kitchen and the art studio. When we first started making these delicious Coconut Popsicles, I looked at them and all I could see were blank canvases! As I was wracking my brain, trying to figure out the best way to turn these little treats into something more creative, I thought that it would really be a shame to add any thing artificial. After playing around a bit with different ingredients, we quickly noticed that concentrated fruit juices work wonders as watercolor popsicle paints. Cute, colorful, and endlessly creative – I can’t wait for you to see (and taste) them for yourself!
