Family Tips

One of the best things you can do is spend alone time with the person you love. A great example is a fun camping date night – even if it’s on the floor by the TV. Add a two person sleeping bag and a great tin foil dinner over a campfire or oven and you will always remember it! Whether it’s the fall cool weather or spring flowers – a great date night will really bring you closer together!

Healthy Halloween Recipes, Monster Eye Salad, Easy Halloween Recipes, Halloween treatsThis is such a simple idea but my kids LOVED it.  We had Monster Eye Salad as a side for dinner tonight and they gobbled it right up.   Funny thing is, is it is just a NORMAL salad, with a few candy Eye Balls  on top.  We did cut and put all the “circle shaped food” on top to play up the eyes.  But other than that is was just a normal green salad.  Hope your family enjoys this idea  as much as mine did.Healthy Halloween Recipes, Monster Eye Salad, Easy Halloween Recipes, Halloween treats

Banana Ghost Pop, Healthy Halloween Treat Ideas, Halloween snacksI made these Banana Ghost Pops for my kids yesterday, there where a total hit. The kids loved them. They were fast and easy to make too! All you do is peel the banana, cut it in half.  Stick a straw in the bottom.  Cover with Wilton Icing to make it look like a ghost… or just make strips to make them look like a mummy.  Add Wilton Candy Eyeballs and you are done :)
