Dessert Crepes with Bananas Foster Southern Butter Pecan Sauce Recipe #IDelight

Bananas Foster Dessert Crepes with Southern Butter Pecan Sauce #IDelight

We've got less than 2 months of warm weather left for the season and quite frankly, I'm ready for it to be over. I miss the cool Fall nights, baking sweets in the oven and cuddling under a blanket with my kids on the couch. While I daydream about the coming cooler months, I'm still enjoying cooking up the occasional sweet treat for my family - sans oven. One of our favorite family desserts is crepes. They're so fun and easy to make, plus the … [Read more...]

Simply Sweet Banana Orange Cream Popsicles Recipe

Banana Orange Cream Yogurt Popsicles Recipe

This summer I've been having a blast making my kids new popsicle flavors to try each week. They're such an easy and sweet way to cool off. When you make them yourself, you also have the advantage of controlling the ingredients and cutting out on the ridiculous amounts of sugar found in some of the store bought ones. This is actually one popsicle I don't feel guilty giving my kids any time of the day, even breakfast. They look like a popsicle … [Read more...]

Pinterest Try & Tell | Beach Party themed Sand Pail Pudding

Beach Party Themed Sand Pudding Recipe

Earlier this week, my daughter Kaydence celebrated her 7th birthday with a beach themed birthday party. It started with a day of sun and fun at the local water park. That's the closest thing we have to a real beach here in the lovely landlocked state of Illinois. Actually, I take that back, when I was a kid we had a sandy beach on Lake Springfield where I would spend my summers but they closed it down years ago after an outbreak of … [Read more...]

Simply Sweet Chunky Pineapple Popsicles Recipe with only 2 ingredients |

Popsicles have become all the rage in this house since I found this super nifty popsicle mold. And with the way the kids keep begging me to try more and more flavors, I'm sure you can expect to see at least one new popsicle flavor idea every week until it gets cold out.

Chunky Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream Recipe | ©

Last week we got a nice break from the heat as some thunderstorms rolled in over the course of a few days. Not only was it a much needed break from the backyard pool, which is drying my hair and skin out like crazy, but it also gave me a chance to indulge in my favorite hobby ... storm chasing. Yes, I'm a total weather nerd. Given the opportunity, I'd probably move to Oklahoma just to spend my free time chasing severe weather. Anyways, that … [Read more...]

Caramel Macchiato No Bake Frozen Cheesecake Dessert Recipe #IDelight

June has quickly become an insanely hot month. When we're not cooling off in the pool, we're inside sweating it out until nightfall when the temperatures become somewhat bearable again. During the hot weeks like this, the only thing anybody wants to eat is something frozen! We're going through gallons of frozen lemonade, more popsicles than I can count and lots of cold cut sandwiches. I've also given up my daily hot coffee because, well, it's … [Read more...]

Partnered Post on Behalf of Finish. Every day this first week of summer vacation, our morning conversations have gone like this ... Kid - "Mommy, I'm bored" Mom - "I know honey, I'm bored too" And it replays at least twice a day with each child who can't find anything better to do than remind me how bored we all are. So I'm left to get creative and sometimes that means finding ways to get the kids to help me do boring household chores. … [Read more...]

Lightened Up Real Fruit Strawberry Popsicles Recipe

Lightened Up Real Fruit Strawberry Popsicles Recipes

It was just a few hours ago that I woke up my husband and daughter just after the sunrise to trek out to our favorite strawberry pickin' patch. It's a yearly tradition to go out there and pick as many strawberries as we can carry and bring them home to be frozen. This little basket of berries you see here is only about 1/3 of what we actually brought home. You might be wondering why in the world we'd ever need so many strawberries so let … [Read more...]
