Yogurt Dip for Kids

Nature Box Snack with Yogurt Dip

So, tonight is the Trunk or Treat at our church which means that tonight is the night when the sugar high begins, and that lasts until all the candy is gone … some time in the New Year. You know how it goes, Halloween officially marks the beginning of the sugar season. We go right […]

Easy and Inexpensive Weeknight Chicken

Easy Weeknight Chicken

Since we’re talking about some of our favorite grocery store finds this week, I thought I’d share my go to recipe for when company is coming, but I’m short on time. I started making this years ago after reading a recipe in Southern Living Magazine. Over the years it has evolved, but it remains one […]

Ginger Pumpkin Soup

Roasted Pumpkin Soup

Am I the only one who could eat soup every day of the week and twice on Sunday? If my little kids weren’t so messy we would eat soup a lot more often. I just love that for relatively little effort, I get a delicious and healthy meal. This soup takes an hour and a […]

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Pumpkin Ice Cream

When we first started talking about pumpkin week, we wanted to come up with a bit of a twist. We decided that a little pumpkin pie ice cream … ahem … pumpkin gelato is just what October ordered. In fact we were going to get all fancy and title the recipe Zucca Gelato, but I […]

Perfect Pumpkin Muffins

Super easy and yummy pumpkin muffin recipe

I know perfection is in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to pumpkin muffins, I’m pretty sure these are perfection. Not only is the recipe amazingly easy and kid-helper friendly, the muffin itself is everything a muffin should be. Not too dry, but still a little crumbly; pumpkin-y without being all “PUMPKIN!” […]

Witches Brew Party


Yesterday we showed you the invitation and shared the printables for our Witches Brew party. Today we thought we’d show you a few photos from the party itself! Amanda, Sarah and I hosted this party together, which meant we had guests that knew one of us but didn’t know everyone coming to the party, so we […]

Apple Cider Donuts

Apple Cider Donuts | Handmademood

We are ending apple week with a delicious treat. Have you ever tried apple cider donuts? If not, we have something amazing for you! These donuts are baked, which makes them a lot healthier than the deep fried version. These are pretty much the perfect treat for Fall. They make a great after school snack, […]

Dulce de Leche Candy Apples

Candy Apples | Handmade Mood

When we started talking about what we wanted to feature during apple week one of the first things we decided on was the candy apple. We wanted to do something a little different from the melted caramel version (although I love that version!). As we brainstormed different flavor ideas, an opportunity came to create a […]
