Dye-Free Sprinkles Smash Cake

I still can’t believe that Gemma is one! This year, just like the past 9 with Kenya and Chloe have gone way too fast. Knowing that Gemma will most likely be my last first birthday celebration, I’ve been looking forward to doing something extra special for my baby girl. We invited over tons of family and a few friends to help us celebrate our sweet angel.

I wanted to make the biggest, best, tastiest smash cake ever seen. If you’ve never seen or heard of a smash cake, it’s the cake given to a baby on her first birthday to SMASH and eat at will. If you’ve never been lucky enough to watch a baby do this I highly recommend it as it’s the funniest and cutest thing ever! I may have gotten a bit carried away spending countless hours writing and testing recipes for her special day. Weeks before her big day I started researching different smash cakes and realized that many were made with tons of food dyes which just didn’t seem right for feeding to a baby, so I came up with a few...

Pancake Tacos

Pancake Tacos

Do I have the only kids who would rather eat with their hands than with a fork, knife or spoon? Especially when they’re ravenous they will come to the kitchen table and dig right in grabbing food and inhaling it as fast as possible. There are some foods that seem like they should be eaten with utensils, but they’re honestly a lot more fun to enjoy using fingers like chicken nuggets, pizza balls and especially many breakfast foods.

I’ve gotten to the point that I won’t even put out silverware in the morning when I’m making waffles, french toast or even pancakes as the kids prefer it when I fill little dishes with maple, honey or fresh raspberry syrup for them to dunk right into saving me the trouble of washing anything other than their plates.

I love it when they get extra creative with their food creating new ways to eat what seems like a straightforward food. Kenya hadn’t been feeling great a few weeks ago and was sticking to the BRAT diet: bananas, rice, applesauce...

Paper Bag Popcorn

Paper Bag Popcorn has totally changed my life! That may sound a bit dramatic, but when I think back to how much money I’ve spent over the years on microwave popcorn that comes only 3 packs to a box I’m sure it would be a hefty number.

Paper Bag Popcorn from weelicious.com

I grew up with a mother who had a big bowl of popcorn waiting for my brother and I after school every day as our snack while we did homework and watch TV. To this day popcorn is one of my favorite snack foods no matter the time of day. While I love popcorn made in a pot over the stove, there are days I don’t have the time and resist cleaning yet another pot, so I reach for the pre-packaged variety in the box.

My husband, who I lovingly refer to as the food police came across an article pointing out the fact that microwave popcorn bags have BPA in the lining of the microwave bags, so I started making this version. This paper bag popcorn recipe couldn’t be any easier to make and is really fun too. Watch this paper bag popcorn video to learn my...

Back To School Breakfasts from weelicious.com

We’re one week away from summer being over (WAH!) and school being back in session. While I’m looking forward to a more regular schedule during the week, I’m sad for all of the late summer mornings of long leisurely brunches (a better word for eating a massive breakfast after getting to sleep in late). Most mornings we’ve been waking up, playing boardgames and then making our way to the kitchen to cook up crepes, french toast or smoothies.

A few of the recipes on the list like Happy Eggs, Berry Delicious Oatmeal and homemade Egg McMuffins we’ve been making for years while others like Acai Bowls and Avocado Toast are simple meals that have become new weekly favorites.

Tips for Safely Keeping Germs Away + Seventh Generation Giveaway

Tips for Safely Keeping Germs Away from weelicious.com

How do you keep babies and kids safely away from germs without being that overprotective crazy parent? It’s not easy! Should we expose or protect our kids from all of the germs that lurk around them? This list of tips for safely keeping germs away from your kids should be a good start to deciding which precautions you take to keep your kids as safe and healthy as possible all year long.

Tips for Safely Keeping Germs Away from weelicious.com

1. Wash those little hands: kids, especially babies and toddlers have their hands in their mouths all day long. They crawl all over the floor, pick up anything they can find and then suck their fingers or eat with their hands ingesting whatever germs come their way. One of the easiest ways to limit exposure is by washing their hands. As early as 4 months old I washed my kid’s hands with hand soap so germs are easily rinsed away.

2. Clean toys frequently: you may not realize it, but your kids toys collect germs from all of the play they get day in and day out. To say they’re a bullseye for...
