Emergency Information free printable to give to people taking care of your child with food allergies.

Safe Play Dates with Food Allergies

This week, I made you something for Make It Monday! It’s a free printable that may help your food allergic kiddo when faced with a medical emergency on a play date.

My son, D-Man, has severe food allergies, he is an anaphylactic, and he has a social life. He is in kindergarten, goes to birthday parties and on play dates. Yes we protect for his safety in these situations, but we let him go to the parties and friend’s houses. I cannot decide if we are less fearful for his safety or just more prepared to handle his food allergies. I don’t think my husband or I could say that even a year ago.

Spaghetti squash is a perfect substitution for pasta, with added toppings it becomes a vegetable lovers dream meal!

Tomato Sauce with Zucchini over Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is something that my husband, Mr. P has been talking about for about a year. He loves spaghetti squash. I thought I was a traditionalist and only wanted to use pasta for my pasta dishes. The last time I had spaghetti squash I was probably in high school and have been avoiding it ever since. Boy was I wrong, and Mr. P was right (yep I actually admitted being wrong, write that down honey it doesn’t happen every day). The spaghetti squash turned out so delicious this is definitely going on my recipe repeat list! Continue reading “Tomato Sauce with Zucchini over Spaghetti Squash”

Homemade makeup remover and cleaning pads made from an upcycled flannel pajama. To reduce waste, save money and look cute.

Homemade Makeup Remover & Cleansing Pads

Happy Make It Monday everyone! I made my own makeup remover and cleansing pads this weekend. I came around to this little craft by happenstance. Do you ever forget that you tossed your flannel pajamas in the dryer again! Now the pajamas are all shrunk unevenly and uncomfortable to wear because of the shrinkage.  I was trying to think of what to do with them. The flannel still felt awesome but the material didn’t fit right.

Mushroom, spinach quiche is an easy breakfast egg dish that is super simple and versatile. Great to have ready on those hectic mornings.

Mushroom & Spinach Quiche

This weather, 10″ inches of snow today. It’s mid March and winter is not quite over here in Wisconsin, that means snowpants weather isn’t over either. I love winter except for getting out the door with the kids in their snowpants and boots and extra bag for inside shoes. I decided to make some golden brown quiche to have to reheat for the hectic mornings. It’s easy to throw together and to reheat for a warm egg dish for breakfast on these cold mornings.

Homemade and removable piano seat cover to add some color and style. Protecting a family heirloom from your children as well. Easy sewing tutorial with pictures.

Piano Seat Cover: Homemade & Removable

We have the most charming piano. I learned how to play on it when I was young and possibly someday at least one of my children will also learn how to play on the piano. Currently they enjoy using it to bang on the keys. Also to me and my mother’s dismay they enjoy driving their cars, dancing their figures, and landing their airplanes across the piano bench. We’ve tried to throw a nice colorful mat over it, but it slips right off. Occasionally with a small boy along for the ride!
