Kids Just Want to Have fun with a Recipe BOOK!

Hi Friends! Welcome to my blog! You have probably just popped on over from visiting the talented Shelley's blog.

I have made a Snack Cookbook to celebrate back to school! This has been so much fun for my son and I since he is taking home economics this semester! It is a wonderful way to spend time with your kids! We look forward to filling this book with all our favs!




I made this book from manila file folders and cut it using the From my Kitchen cartridge along with the design studio and the gypsy. I used my bind it all for the cover.


Our first recipe is Puppy Chow. One of our "all time" favorites. You have to give this one a try for sure!




Next is a recipe for cinnamon crisps using a mickey mouse cookie cutter. This is great for all you Disney lovers and sooo fun for the kids.



Next for some blog candy! I will be giving away a set of our new The Charmed Life Scrappy Mom's Stamps to one lucky winner. If you are a follower of my blog and leave me a comment after this post you will be entered to win. I will draw the winner on Monday morning!


Thanks again for joining us! Please head back over to Jess's
blog here

Hope you all had a great time!
