So, I’ve shared our little Valentine’s tradition with you a while back, here on OSSS and also on Make and Takes. It’s just something simple that I came up with because I was still pooped from Christmas and didn’t feel like the kids needed any more toys. I decided that every Valentine’s Day we would do BOOKS. Yay, for books! But, not just books… a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt! Even though I told you about it before, I decided it’s okay to bring it up again because THIS TIME I have printable for you… cause guess what?? I just figured out how to make them the other day. Now there’s no stopping me.
So, here’s a little story. I have this sugar cookie recipe that I really love… they’re soft, chewy, and super addicting. I had a sweet reader try them, liked them, then mentioned that if I love those, I will surely love her Gingersnap Cookie recipe. Just like the sugar cookies, these Gingersnap Cookies are soft, chewy, and so amazing. I’m soooo glad she sent me this recipe! They’re definitely a new go-to.
I had a special request for this post, Indoor Activities for Older Girls, and I loved the idea! It’s so true that a lot of what is found on blogs these days are for younger kids… AND, I just happen to be the mom of 2 girls that would love some ‘older’ activities. Any of these activity ideas would be great for them to do alone, with the help of their mom, grandma, or to do with friends.
It’s ready! I’ve finally got the Christmas Gifts for Women put together. It’s been weighing on my mind, so this feels good. 😉 This past week, I’ve shared the gift ideas for kids, gifts for teenagers, and upcoming will be the final one, gift ideas for men. I hope you’re getting your Christmas shopping done […]
Alrighty, folks. If you need some ideas for Christmas gifts for teenagers, I got you covered. I have four teenagers of my own, two boys and two girls, and am already done with my Christmas shopping! Amazon wish lists come in real handy. 🙂 As mentioned in yesterday’s post… I probably only have time for […]
It’s been a while since I’ve shared gift ideas with you! With 7 kids of my own, you know I have plenty of ideas… the issue is always TIME. How can I get more of it?!? Needless to say, maybe don’t expect the usual series for two weeks. But, I think I can pump out […]
Let’s get right to the point. You want to make this. I promise. It it seriously the BEST avocado dip recipe for chips… and, it’s even better if you make it with pita chips. Yum!! So, so, so good. I don’t think I’ve brought this recipe anywhere without several people asking for the recipe. Definitely […]
If you would have asked me about freeze drying last year, I could have told you absolutely nothing. But, things are DEFINITELY different now. My freeze dryer has been running non-stop for months and months. I’ve dried everything from meats and veggies to ice cream sandwiches and cheesecake. I’ve learned a lot, along the way, […]
For the past 3 months, my freeze dryer has been running nonstop. The minute one batch is done, the next is ready to go in. I’ve tried lots and lots of different items in my freeze dryer and am frequently asked about my favorites. Without fail, I will always mention freeze dried Skittles. They’re amazing! […]

This easy raspberry ice cream recipe is what dreams are made of… and, just because it’s late in the summer doesn’t mean it’s too late to make this delicious dessert. One of my most favorite things is attending a family BBQ where homemade ice cream is being served. There’s just something extra good about it […]
