I hate the mess of carving, but I love the tradition and love seeing what my kids come up with. Usually by the end of it all I’m too lazy to want to fuss with the seeds and I just throw them out. I never really loved pumpkin seeds, but thought it was only fair to roast some up for my kids and let them try them.
This friendship snack mix is a great activity to get the family together and talking about their favorite things. Check it out how Liz made all of her family’s different snacks work together for an after-school bite to eat!
Hi friends, Becky here again from Bite of Delight! I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today, because it’s one of my favorite treats that takes me down memory lane. It’s creamy and delicious, and just the right amount of chocolatey. In other words, it’s perfection. Frozen Hot Chocolate is the perfect treat for a hot summer day! All the deliciousness of a warm mug of hot cocoa, but it’s cold and refreshing!
Hello OSSS readers, it’s Cynthia back again with a simple but effective tip for after school snacks.
After school snacking is something that must be dealt with quickly or it can turn into a temper tantrum in my house. My grandson comes home from school, and he is such a creature of habit. He heads straight upstairs, takes a shower then his next steps are directly to the refrigerator. And if there is nothing in the house for him, he turns into a little hungry bear. Let’s see just how easy it is to prevent that problem!
Hi there! My name is Liz and I blog over at Liz on Call. I’m excited to be part of the 2015 team here at Or So She Says! I just want to take a quick minute to introduce myself. I am a mom of 3 beautiful kiddos that are full of energy. My husband and I have been married 8 years and our family is our life.
Although we graduated from the same high school, the same year, we didn’t meet each other until 8 years later! Crazy right!?!? I was able to stay at home with our kids once our 2nd child was born and started blogging to share all the projects, recipes and crafts that I actually had time to work on while I was at home. It turned into more than a hobby and I have loved sharing my ideas with my readers. Where does the name Liz on Call come from? Well it just so happens that my last name is Call. But more than that, I think that as a mother, wife, friend, sister, church goer, woman… I am always on call to be whatever my family and friends need me to be. At Liz on Call I share recipes, simple crafts, kid crafts, gift ideas, party ideas and printables. We just moved into a new house and I can’t wait to start working on some new projects and sharing them there. Come stop and by and say Hi sometime!
For my first post here at Oh So She Says, I’m sharing a super delicious caramel cashew popcorn recipe! I absolutely love making flavored popcorn. And this recipe does not disappoint. When I was growing up my parents would take us to a local frozen custard shop and my dad would always order a caramel cashew mix. Once I tasted that, I was hooked! Since then, there has never been a need for me to try anything else. I always want to get caramels and cashews. The sweet caramel with that hint of salt from the cashews mixed with the creamy custard just can’t be beat. Since I love that combination with frozen custard I decided to give it a try with some popcorn. This caramel cashew popcorn is ooey and gooey and reminds me of going to the frozen custard shop with my family.
Hello! I’m Jana from Double the Deliciousness and I’m so excited to be here to share with you some great, easy, kid & teen friendly after school snacks. School is in full swing now & I don’t know about you, but the first thing I hear out of my kids mouths when we enter the house after school is “what can I have for a snack?”
My must-have for after school snacks is that they be quick and easy. Something that we can throw together before we get working on homework or start carpooling the kids to their different activities. I try to get/make healthy snacks throughout the week, but always make a fun sweet treat for Friday’s after school snack to welcome in the weekend!:)
This recipe is one of our favorite after school snacks, and it pleases my teenagers down to my 7 year old. Win!
Hi! It’s Jamie visiting from Prepared Housewives, here to share with you one of the most addictive snacks EVER!
Before you even begin making this, you need to think of a few friends you want to fatten up and plan to bring them some, because if you don’t, you might suddenly find yourself locked in your closet with the entire bowl (it’s happened before).
Gooey Golden Grahams & Chex Mix Recipe
You can mix in whatever you want, so it can be customized to exactly what you love! Be as creative or boring as you want, because it’s pretty much fail-proof!
Hi everyone, I’m Zainab the baker behind Blahnik Baker. I’m so excited to be sharing with you this peanut butter chocolate banana chip granola recipe as a new contributor here on OSSS! But before we talk about food, I should probably tell you a little bit about myself.
I’m a newly wed graduate student who is teaching herself her way around making delicious desserts and treats! I didn’t grow up baking like most people and had never baked before attempting to make a V-day cake for my then-fiance a few years ago. It was not the prettiest but he loved it 🙂 Since that disastrous first cake making experience, I’ve been on a mission to teach myself the basics of baking and decorating. That’s how I fell in love with baking and making special treats for my friends and family.
During the day, I work on my PhD in Neuroscience and in my spare time/weekends, I’m a bake-a-holic and shoe-a-holic! I love making easy, simple to assemble yet beautiful everyday desserts. But why am I telling you about all the desserts I make and here sharing a healthy granola? Well, while I would love to be eating cupcakes and cakes for every meal, I don’t. I try to balance my diet with healthier recipes, like this peanut butter granola, for most meals so I can indulge later.
Has anyone else noticed, besides my family, that I haven’t been cooking as much?? It’s true. I totally agree with your responses, when I asked… we need to get more recipes on the blog! Everyone suffers when I’m on a diet. Just teasin, but I’m pretty sure at least once a week my kids will say, ‘Mom, do you fit into your jeans YET?!?’ They’re itching for some pancakes! Sunday is my ‘free day,’ and my kids don’t want me to make some never-made-before blog recipe, they want their old favorites. But we’ll compromise, and I promise I’ll get you (and me) some new recipes! …ya just gotta wait until my free day. EXCEPT for this recipe, Kale Chips. I could eat this any day of the week. It’s healthy, delicious, and a great snack. Even better, I’m not kidding… kids love it.
Hello again! I’m Tanna from The Hub of our Home. I’m so excited to be back here at ‘Or so she says…’ sharing another recipe with you today, Snickerdoodle Granola Bars. These granola bar recipe is amazing! They have all the flavors of a great snickerdoodle cookie, but in a chewy granola bar form. My kids aren’t […]
I’ve been on a snack kick lately. It teeters back and forth between unhealthy and healthy. Right now, I’m leaning towards… um, something healthier than an ice cream brownie sundae, with every topping in the world. Every topping. Oh, and whipped cream. So, I actually think I’m doing pretty darn good. Cinnamon Bear Popcorn, definitely the better choice.
Anyway, the ladies at church put together and a cookbook. I love it! It’s been my favorite book because there are so many fabulous cooks in my ward, it’s fun to try out their recipes. You’ll probably be seeing a lot more recipes from there.
My little Joey is always asking to help in the kitchen. But, he is quickly run over by several older siblings who insist that they get to help too. So, yesterday while all the wild ones were out on the trampoline, I snagged Joey and he helped me mix up this super easy snack. So easy that a two year old can make it!
We just called it Ranch Snack Mix. It’s a blend of all things kids love… pretzels, Bugles, Goldfish crackers, cashews, and Ranch dressing mix.
