It has been a while since I told our story, but my son is Gluten Free. It makes eating fun kid foods a little more challenging but not impossible. He love fried chicken with a “handle bone”…I just have to make it. This recipe is super simple, and not much different than typical fried chicken. […]

Homemade Rainbow Chip Frosting

Homemade-Rainbow-Chip-Frosting

Oh the things you learn. Betty Crocker used to make Rainbow Chip Frosting in a tub to go with their Rainbow Chip Cake.  Do not try to compare this to Pillsbury’s Funfetti.

Lemonade Syrup

Lemonade-Syrup

Whenever we go out to eat my kids order lemonade. They judge restaurants on the quality of their lemonade. LOL The fountain stuff doesn’t cut it. Chick-Fil-A gets major bonus points for their fresh squeezed lemonade. They LOVE IT! Mom’s lemonade also gets 2 thumbs up, but I don’t stand in the kitchen squeezing lemons […]
