Stranger Things Eleven Sugar Sprinkle Art

Who's your favorite Stranger Things character? I made this Stranger Things Eleven sugar sprinkle art because I've been a fan of the Netflix show ever since the beginning! As an 80's kid there are so many retro references that I love, but the story itself is amazing. Check out the video below!

Last month I revealed how our family goal this year was to spend more time traveling together. Not only have we already started working towards that goal, but we are celebrating taking our first trip together! For my son's 9th birthday we headed off down the road to Dallas, Texas. I will talk more about that in a minute, but first I want to share about how we celebrated after the trip.

The birthday trip was amazing, so amazing in fact that we did something that we've never done before. We made some fun cookie art as a family to talk about how the trip went, and what our kids' favorite parts were. You see, part of what spurred this goal on was realizing how important it is to experience moments together. So, we thought, why JUST experience the moments, when we could take time to celebrate them as well? That is where the idea of the horse cookies came from. They will forever be linked with our trip to Dallas. If you want to make horse cookies with your family, keep reading to the end!

Popover Pancakes Recipe on the Grill

What? Pancakes on the grill? How in the world could that be possible? This Popover Pancakes recipe is not only one of my kids favorite meals, it's also easy to make on your BBQ when you don't want to heat up the house on those hot summer days! This is an old family recipe that I first experienced shortly after my wife and I got married. My mother-in-law gifted us a binder full of recipes that my wife grew up with, but we recently improved it when we found Nellie's Free Range eggs! Their rich flavor is about the only thing that could take these pancakes to the next level.

Easy and Fun Fruity Watermelon Snack Recipe

Sunday, June 23, 2019


My kids love fruit, especially during the summer. So I thought it would be fun to take their watermelon to the next level by stuffing it with other creatively shaped fruit! It's so easy to do because I just used star and heart shaped cutters to perfectly create each shape. The trick is to slice the watermelon, and all of the other fruit, close to the same depth. You can see exactly how I made this healthy fruit snack recipe by watching my video below!

3 Unbeatable Ways to Top Your BBQ Steak For Father's Day!

When it comes to Father's Day in our family, the big question for us is always where to eat. We could go out to a restaurant, but then we would have to deal with getting the kids ready, waiting for a table, paying a premium price for food and service, and then gambling on whether the meal we order is actually going to live up to expectations or not. Dads hate being disappointed like that, especially on Father's Day. This is why we came up with a way that you can grill your favorite steak and then top it in these three unbeatable ways!

3 Unbeatable Ways to Top Your BBQ Steak For Father's Day!

The best part about these ideas is that you can pick up all of the ingredients at your local ALDI store, so you are getting a premium deal instead of a premium price like you would with going out to eat. Dads, you will love this next part. You can now use Instacart so you can have someone deliver your groceries to your door like the BBQ King that you are. Why should you have to climb in your car at all on Father's Day? Let the food come to you so that you can show off your talents at the BBQ.
