Hi friends and thank you, September.

A few things | Treats We Eat (Baked + Raw)

Happy Weekend! Oodles to share with you today. If you're in the US, Happy Holidays.

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.
