Halloween Candy 100 Calories or Less

Happy Halloween everyone! Halloween is such a fun holiday whether you have kids or not. One thing I try not to do, but always seem to, is to indulge in the candy. It’s only once a year, right?  This year, I thought I would take a different approach. I didn’t purchase my Halloween candy until the very last minute so it wouldn’t be sitting around for my kids or me to be tempted. Also, I did a little research to find out which types of candy have 100 calories or less. While doing research, I found such cute candy merchandise such as this adorable M & M’s Dispenser.

Brie-Mushroom Burgers

For Memorial Day weekend, I want to share one of my favorite burgers: Brie-Mushroom Burger. The first time I made this, my kids were a little leery of the Brie and mushrooms. When they tried it, they were hooked. This is a great way to get your children to eat mushrooms and try new ingredients. If you’re grilling this weekend for adults, you will definitely enjoy this burger with a cold beer (or glass of red wine). Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Rice Krispy Easter Eggs

Okay, so this post is attributed to my daughter, Leigh, and her friend, Ellen. She spent the night with Ellen a few weeks ago and made these awesome Rice Krispy Easter Eggs. They were googling a fun Easter project, and they found this great idea from Family Fun magazine. She called me and said, “Mom, you must come take a picture of this to post on your blog.” At first, I was like, “Huh?”  When I arrived at Ellen’s house, I realized how right Leigh was. These are adorable, fun and a great Easter treat idea for kids. As you notice from my picture, Ellen didn’t have any Easter colored M & M’s, but any colors will do. Happy Easter!
