Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Nothing says “Welcome Fall” like the appearance of the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks.   It’s one of my all-time guilty pleasures but  my poor kids just don’t understand why we have to wait in line for Mama to get one every Friday morning once the weather starts to cool down.  I decided to give them a little taste of what pumpkin spice is all about… I mean, espresso and milk shouldn’t have ALL the fun!

{Back To School} Oatbars


We just had our parent orientation for Pre-K which starts next week.  On the agenda – Pack a “healthy” snack for your child every day.  I’m pretty sure that doesn’t mean a liquorice stick or vanilla wafers, so here’s what I’ve got in store.

I rarely get a recipe posted on the same day that I actually cook a meal and this is the first time I’ve ever posted within the same hour of making something, but oh my! these waffles are sensational and totally warrant the expedited delivery to you.
