Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs with Honey and Sprinkles

Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs by HappilyBlended.com #foodie #recipe

One evening while taking care of dishes with my six year old son beside me going through our kitchen drawers, he found a gingerbread man cookie cutter. K-man was curious, wanted to know what it was. I explained what it was and immediately he was hoping for me to make some cookies shaped like gingerbread man. Sadly. I had not the ingredients to do that. What I did have was an idea! I told K-man that the next morning, when I make his scrambled eggs, I could use this cutter to try to make Gingerbread Man Scrambled Eggs. He was […]

Honey Maid® Grahamfuls Are Delicious

My family was able to test out Honey Maid® Grahamfuls not that long ago and well the boxes didn’t last that long.  You can choose from three varieties; Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Chocolate, or Banana Vanilla Creme. My kiddos much preferred the Peanut Butter & Chocolate ones, then they ate up the Peanut Butter ones last but not least the Banana Vanilla Creme was gobbled up. Honey Maid® Grahamfuls are a wonderful addition to any lunchbox, made with real Honey Maid graham crackers and 100% whole grain while also containing real honey these are certainly Mom approved. At least […]

If Only the Big Bad Wolf Was Real…

My three year old son is obsessed with the big bad wolf, if you ask him he will tell you he “isn’t scared of anything, not even the big bad wolf”. Then he will proceed to tell you that he will just punch him in the face. This kid has a mouth on him the size of Texas, no joke. Since he will be in preschool soon, hopefully, I am working on figuring out how to properly redirect his amazing imagination with a less mouthy touch. It’s. not. working. yet. The other night I needed to cook dinner because the […]

My Little Baking Boy

My first born and only daughter is a fabulous cook, well baker. That girl can bake way better than me, it’s always a joke that if someone is going to make one of our family member’s birthday cakes that Miss Ki better do it for Mom will end up ruining it. It’s the fun joke around our home, and yes I can laugh at myself so it’s all in fun! My second born is a stereotypical boy, has zero interest in the kitchen and that’s just fine by me. He excels in other areas, but my youngest child, a boy, […]

The Cool {and Quick} Way to Make Pancakes for Multiple Kids

I must admit I take full advantage of looking like a “cool mom” most mornings when I wake up to cook the kids pancakes on a weekend or before school starts. The reason I look like the “cool mom” is because I take what some may say to be the lazier approach to making pancakes for three kids, or if on a weekend when my daughter has a friend over, four kids. I first make sure to purchase some of the Bisquick pancake mix, this time I chose the Bisquick Complete type of pancake mix, where you add just water. […]

Tis the Season for Chocolate and Peanut Butter Combined

This month was Peanut Butter Lovers month but let me tell you what, nothing goes with peanut butter like chocolate. Yummy, delicious chocolate. I used to love peanut butter cups as a child, I would put a hole right through the middle of them and eat around it like a donut. I handed down this tradition to my children who do the same thing with their peanut butter cups. I love the idea of creating a peanut butter, chocolate pie to eat on Thanksgiving day with the family. Sweetness is my weakness on certain holidays and well sometimes once a […]
