A fun way to wake up on Halloween is to some homemade Halloween pumpkin Pop-Tarts like this one! Use fun Halloween cookie cutters (ghosts, bats, pumpkins) to create a whole assortment. They're flakey, pumpkiny, and sweet. Let's face it, I'm a sucker for cute Halloween treats!

Who's ready for football? My husband loves college football, so of course, my eight-year-old daughter does, too. They're already planning their "game time," their special time together on the couch watching their favorite teams.

While they're watching -- which is so cute to see btw, because my daughter doesn't understand the game -- I'm usually fixing snacks.

Don't you want to just eat these guys up?! The best part is they're super simple and quick to make, and your kids can help, too.

I'm in charge of my daughter's school Halloween party this year, and I think she and I will be making a couple dozen very soon.

My daughter and I just finished reading the entire Harry Potter series together. It took us a whole year. Every night we would take turns reading. What a journey it's been, both in terms of the story, and for us. It was like for a year we shared our own special magical world with our own language and our own inside jokes.

So now that we've finished the books, we decided to watch the movies together as a family. (My husband had read the whole series earlier.) It's given us a new way to enjoy Harry Potter, and there's so much for us to talk about and debate as we compare books to movies.

Check out my newest video with Mode Media on how to create pasta two ways -- one for adults and one for kids.

My daughter is the pickiest of eaters, so I'm used to modifying recipes. These two recipes satisfy our whole family, but don't take a ton of time.

It rained last night. No, it poured, and I was delighted. I went outside to smell the smells and soak it all in. I didn't care how wet I got.

I'm on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina. We're visiting my family who live in the middle of the woods.
