Can you freeze yogurt? That’s a good question! Here’s the answer. Question: Can you freeze yogurt? There are some screaming deals on yogurt this week in my neck of the woods.

When I can I try to make dinnertime match the theme to help reinforce some of the things that our kids are learning.

Years ago I found this great book at the library called Too Many Pumpkins. It tells the story of Rebecca Estelle, an elderly woman who, as a result of living in the Depression, hated pumpkins.

I made a big batch of these this afternoon. Popped them in the oven and then headed across the street to the park with the kiddos. What a nice snack to come home to! My big boy (almost 12) loved the independence of coming home by himself to check them and pull them out of […]
