Peanut Butter & Honey Krispie Treats

Peanut butter rice krispie squares - no bake, 7 minutes, and always a hit!

There’s a blanket on my couch that I’m very protective of. I bought it on a whim at Superstore last year, and ended up spending most of the first two weeks of nights with Jack under it on the couch. There was something about the softness of that blanket hitting us that calmed us both […]

Peanut Butter & Jam Oat Breakfast Bars

Peanut Butter & Jam Oat Bars from

It is truly astounding how much I hate babysitting. I love my own children with an intense, unending, smothering love and literally never get tired of the blessing of getting to stay home with them. But, schedule me to be in a room with 10+ children, such as in our church nursery, and I literally […]

Saturday Sweets: Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Squares

Who doesn’t love Rice Krispies? Ooooooo, OOOhhh, oooh, pick me, pick meeee!

It was just going to be one of those unassuming days at Zellers, soon to be officially Target. I just needed a buggy to cart around little b and the spoils of what was going to be a large shopping trip. Turns out that their buggies need to swallow a loonie in order to be […]

Saturday Sweets: Calico Squares

There are few things that make me crazier than hair in my dishwater. Tell me I’m not alone in this? I do not have a dishwasher at my disposal, and I actually don’t really mind doing the dishes, but, when there is a hair in the water, it gives me the heebies in the very […]
