Tuesday Tips with C-Dub!

Hey friends! I decided to join along with the Crayon Wrangler's brand spankin' new "Tuesday's Tips" blog hop! It's a spin off of her "Lessons Learned" posts!

Today's topic is: Cooking with Children

-If you cook with children, you're a better mom than me.
-Letting a small child crack eggs will certainly result in a crunchy ending.
-If "crunchy" is what you're aiming for, let them crack away!
-Cooking with small children will result in many deep breaths and totally frayed nerves.
-Totally frayed nerves are cured only by chocolate.
-Chocolate chip cookies with a mysterious crunch are not quite the remedy you were looking for.
-Next time, you'll just do it yourself.

There ya go! Join in and have some fun!!

  1. Ha! My kids love cracking the eggs. I thank Grandma for teaching them this trick. My favorite saying when I'm cooking with the kids is "I am NOT grandma!"

  3. Hey there! It has been awhile :) I think I've fallen off of the blogging earth! I hope you're doing well!

    This cracked me up! I don't have a ton of patience for cooking with my kids, but I'm working on it. The more I get them involved the less work I have for myself, right?! :)

    Take care! Hugs!

  5. Haha...I can't wait for the next lesson. I don't think I would mind slightly "crunchy" cookies if that meant someone was providing me with cookies. Just sayin :)

  9. This is a cute new meme:) Letting my 3-year-old crack eggs scares the bejezzus (sp?) out of me. I am a total germ-a-phobe. I leave that teaching lesson up to her Nana, and E. cooks breakfast with her each chance she gets:)

Coming soon...

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!


Crock-Pot Fajitas

You!
Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Tonight.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post first...you know...so you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
