Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies

I found this recipe in a Christmas Cookie Cookbook about 8 years ago. Since then, I have misplaced the book, but the recipe is soooo simple that it's still one we make every Christmas. It's certainly a great year round recipe and perfect for kids to help with!

Here's what you need:

1c. peanut butter
1c. granulated suger
1 egg

That's it! You can double or triple the recipe for bigger batches. The 1-1-1 ratio makes about 30 cookies (1 tsp. sized).

Cook at 350 for about 12 minutes. One note: you'll need to press down the cookie because it does not spread.

A few of our favorite variations include rolling the cookies in sugar before putting them on the cookie sheet, adding a Hershey Kiss, and mixing in chocolate chips. Some things I haven't tried yet but I think would be lovely and yummy are a candy coating drizzle or dip, using chunky peanut butter, and adding sprinkles.

What would you add to this super simple recipe?

And by the way, I intended to have a picture fo…

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees. Sleigh rides. Visits with Santa.
And it all starts with the Santa Dash for Cash - a 1K "fun run" in which all participants must wear Santa gear! The run is TOMORROW and when you register at www.wassaildays.com you will receive a Frisco Santa shirt, a Santa hat and at the end of the run you will receive a stocking full of goodies including Wassail Cash (the official currency of Wassail Days that can be used at local restaurants and retailers) and a FREE pass for a ½ hour of tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill.

Holiday Heads-Up Part 2

Well, I've done a little more reading and little more shopping since my first holiday post.

I'm convinced that to make it through December 31 debt-free, you absolutely MUST have a plan! Have you been to the stores that are playing Christmas music already?!? I want to not like it, but it's hard when that Christmas-y feeling makes you feel so good. And, it makes me feel like shopping for gifts, new decorations, ingredients for favorite recipes... the list goes on.

So on my most recent trip to a national chain craft store, I'll confess to you that I didn't have a plan. I had a few scraps of a plan floating around my brain, but no solid plan for what I was looking for or who I was shopping for. But, at times like these I do tell myself one thing: if it's not on sale, you don't need it. And so I began my  quest for gifts and goodies for the holidays. Maybe I should have left my wallet in the car, but I still think I made out okay.

If you're family, you may w…

Holiday Heads-Up

It seems like it wasn't that long ago that I was a young bride browsing the shelves of a certain mega-bookstore in Fort Collins, Colorado. B.K. (before kids) my hubby and I would spend hours milling around the bookstore reading the dust covers, paging through table of contents, and rummaging in the bargain bin for our next read.

It was more his hobby than mine, but even then I loved to find a bargain! On one such outing, I stumbled on a book that would forever change my spending and my holidays. Debt Proof Your Holidays by Mary Hunt is just a little book, but it has big ideas that can change your entire outlook on the upcoming holiday season.

And if you're like me (I'm guessing many of you are), you're already thinking about Thanksgiving straight through to Christmas and dreaming about the things you'll give, what you'll cook, the parties you'll host, and the events you'll attend. The "problem" is it all costs money and it all takes time! And …

Card Game Tip for kids

We love to play games as a family. With the clocks turned back and the days turned shorter, more than ever were thinking about indoor activities that don't involve turning on the TV or sitting behind a computer.

One of our favorite games is Uno (close second place includes Old Maid and War). But we quickly found out that little hands have trouble holding all those cards! So, in honor of shorter days and family time I wanted to share this great little trick I discovered.



Save an empty egg carton and flip it over. First, cut off the lid - you won't need that part. Then, cut slits in each round egg-shaped compartment. Now cards can be held in place with no hands! Make one for each little person and they can be easily stored in a game closet or cabinet. (I think I originally saw this idea in an issue of Family Fun magazine, but don't remember for sure who to credit.)

Hope you enjoy many fun, family nights together this fall and winter!

Cake Pops for the Home Baker

This is the tale of birthday treats with a twist. The twist is good, but the twist comes with some serious side notes. And here they are.

Pros:
No worries about how the cake turns out. You're just going to smash it to bits anyway.Recipe is super simple: one baked cake, one can of premixed frosting smashed together in a bowl, a few bags of candy coatingEasy to eat for kids - less mess than cupcakes, brownies or cakePerfect treat for easy transportFun, fun, fun!! Cons:
Super simple meets super messy! Making balls by hand was a m-e-s-s!Getting those cake balls onto sticks was easy enough, getting them to stay... not so much.Maybe it was just me, but it took much more candy coating to frost these than I expected which turned out to be the biggest expense.Individual wrapping was necessary for taking them to school (in my opinion). This also added to the expense.Bottom line: It would have been much cheaper to buy something than to bake these. On the other hand, they probably wouldn't …

The Hermit Crab Is...

Dead.

It's probably been weeks, but I didn't have the guts to look.

My daughter brought the matter to my attention yesterday and since the hermit crab belongs to her little brother she was very concerned about his reaction. To tell you the truth, I am too.

That's why I'm staging the scene to make it look like the hermit crab is still alive. Rest assured, I've disposed of the carcass and sanitized everything that remains. And now the waiting begins. It's possible that it's been a couple of months since little brother has played with the hermit crab, so it's likely that it could take him a couple more months to discover what I already know.

On the other hand, he might notice tonight. I realize I'm not necessarily prolonging the inevitable... unless it's not inevitable.

Here's where my motherly instincts may be running amok. Is it possible to never admit to the death of hermit crab? If he does ever realize that the hermit crab is gone, might it…

Littleton In The Fall

The coolers days have me thinking about what I'd love to do with my kids, my friends, my hubby, or maybe even all by myself (gasp!) in the days ahead. Here are a few on my list:

#10: Dream about holiday dinners and slow-simmered meals while browsing the shelves at Savory Spice

#9: Bringing a blanket and sipping on some apple cider (BYO) while the sun sets at Sterne Park

#8: Stopping by the Bemis Library on Sat, Sept 18 for Animal Adventures with Safari Sally

#7: Making plans for a night out with my man, or best girl friend, at JaJa's Bistro

#6: Now that the crowd has passed, taking a trip by Sniagrab for some cool weather deals

#5: Walking around Clement Park and gazing up at the snow capped mountains

#4: Enjoying the "$100 or Less" art show at the Depot Art Center and Gallery

#3: Stopping by Lola's Sugar Rush to tempt myself with some pre-Halloween treats

#2: Enjoying the festivities at this year's Harvest Festival and Pumpkin Sale at the Littleton Historic…

Here's Some Progress: The Pillow Question

I hope everyone is enjoying the great Denver area deals, but I have something else on mind this weekend.

Pillows.

Maybe you've had the same question too: How long?

How long is the life of a pillow?

According to an article written by Kelli B. Grant at Yahoo Finance (Feb 2007):

PILLOWS
Replace after: Two years
Why: Pressure on the pillow as you sleep causes it to flatten, and develop uncomfortable bumps and lumps, says GHI's Huddy. To test if your pillow still has life in it, she says, fold it in half and rest your hand on top for 30 seconds. Then let go. "If the pillow pops back, it's fine," she says. If it remains folded, it's time to buy a new one.

Life the Green Way, a blog out of Birmingham, shares similar information:

"Sleep experts recommend replacing top-quality pillows every 2 to 3 years and never using a cheap pillow for more than a few months at a time.
It is also important to note that although people get fitted for shoes and clothing, they …

Slicing Watermelon in 2011

Apparently, I've been needlessly torturing myself with my old school watermelon slicing technique. To tell the truth, I just didn't know any better. It's a shame, I tell you. It's a real shame.

My go-to magazine, Sunset, has set me on a better path once again. And I just have to share. (Thank you, Sunset. What would I do without you?)

If you don't have a delicious, juicy watermelon sitting on your counter top just imagine. That bulging globe of goodness is just waiting to be sliced into! But where to start?!? If you are like I was (last week), you would get the biggest knife you own and slice that baby right now the middle. Then, you'd lay it on it's flat sides and cut into quarters, then slices... it's not a bad technique if you want to serve your melon with the rind on.

But, if you're making a fruit salad, cutting into chunks for kids, or cubing to make a beverage, then you need to hear about my "new" favorite" cutting technique!

"The Payoff"

Heelys Product Review

We surprised our little man with a pair of Heely's for his 6th birthday last week. He couldn't have been more excited - sneakers with wheels? - what could be cooler than that??

It's been about a week and he is still trying to get the hang of them. Our strategy is slow and steady. A few minutes each day trying to help him to find his balance and figure out how to position his feet. He wasn't so hot on roller skates this summer either, so I'm not too surprised it's taking him a while.

First stop in the training process was the Heely's website for a demo and tutorial video that was helpful. It gives you the basics, but is definitely geared toward teens and adults.

Here are my thoughts:
Great for kids who are already prolific skatersOlder kids and teens will catch on quicklyHeely's quality is top notchI love that you can take out the wheels entirely and wear as regular shoesThe styles and colors to choose from are impressiveBe sure to become a fan on their…

What Is Nu Val?

Maybe you've noticed the newest numbers lingering near the price of the foods sitting on the shelves of your grocery store. This one simple number gives you huge insight into the nutritional value of the products that you choose for your family to eat! Hence the name "Nu Val" - and the good news is that Nu Val was formulated by independent medical and scientific experts - so you know you're getting the whole story.

The Nu Val number takes into account a wide range of nutritional factors and uses a scientific formula to calculate the exact nutritional value of foods. The higher the number is, the greater the nutritional value of the food. I noticed the numbers for the first time this week in my local store. I was purchasing tortilla chips and noticed that the blue chips had a significantly higher number than the white or yellow chips. A friend had told me recently about the new system so I started checking out the other items I was purchasing that day. Not all items i…

Dinner and Dirty Dishrags

I'm writing this post to pacify myself.

Monday night we had a fantastic group of people over to our home for dinner. This is by no means an unusual  occurrence (as I'm sure our neighbors would attest). Generally my house is picked up and ready for guests to arrive. There may be a few leftover dishes in the sink from finishing up meal preparations, perhaps a stray toy disregarded in the excitement of the arrival of a friend. And I assure you that even if I had cleaned the toilet just an hour before I expected guests to arrive there would no doubt be a little dribble around the bowl from a certain young man.

This is the stuff of life.

But as I was cleaning the kitchen and all was quiet after a night of good food and roaring laughter - I saw it. The dishrag. I had quite mindlessly retrieved a "fresh" dishrag earlier in the day. It was an old one that had been used one too many times to clean off the patio furniture and should have been introduced to some bleach (which I…

Idaho Springs: Quick, Easy, Fun

Most of us with (or without) kids have stopped in Idaho Springs on our way to and from some other mountain destination. Is it taking a leap to guess that you stopped in to eat at Beau Jo's? I don't think so.

Last year we took a chance and made Idaho Springs our final destination. It was accompanied by a drive up Mount Evans, a soak in the hot springs, and yes, dinner at Beau Jo's. This year, we opted to check-out the town and spend most of our time letting the kids swim at the Indian Hot Springs.

Now the first thing you need to know is that you can get a pretty amazing deal if you spend the night at the Indian Hot Springs. The second thing you need to know is that their website makes them look like a way nicer place than they really are. With that said, if you stay in the "lodge" (not the "inn") and stick to the swimming pool only, I think your family will feel pretty comfortable. If you're up for having an interesting experience, you might consider…

Camping with Kids in Colorado

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you might remember that about a month ago I was very excited about our first camping trip of the season. I was planning all of the details to make the trip go smoothly, create some fun memories, and give myself some room to relax. Although naturally nothing went as planned, I can honestly say that memories were made.

Golden Gate Canyon State Park is said to have some of the best tent camping in Colorado - I concur. This is just one reason why you can't just pack up the car today and hope to find a spot tonight. Reservations are almost a necessity and when you're going with kids you just can't take the risk of driving around trying to find a camping spot (fyi, we made this mistake for the first and last time about a year ago).

To me, Golden Gate is the perfect location for several reasons, not the least of which that it is close to home (less than an hour and a half from south Denver) and because it is a state park has plenty of wel…

So Much To Do, So Little Time (to write about it)

I've been taking a lot of time to do take advantage of summertime here in Colorado.... the last three weeks have been an awesome mix of over-night adventures and local kid activities. This week, I'll be highlighting a few of the things we've been doing, but for now...

Here's a quick rundown of all the free activities to take advantage of in Littleton:

Tuesdays at 2pm in June: Bemis Public Library has programs just for kids each week

Wednesdays from 10am - 3pm: Farmer's Market at Aspen Grove  (bring some money to buy local or just enjoy the sights and sounds!)

Wednesdays at 7pm: Concerts at the Littleton Historical Museum on the lawn through the end of July

Wednesday evenings: Aspen Grove Family Movie Nights through the end of July ( BYO blanket & plan for a movie under the stars - better for families with older children)

Saturday June 25 is Great American Backyard Campout night! - Get the neighbors together for a fun night right on your block!

You Know You're Not Overprotective If...

... this is your 8-year-old ...

Extreme? No. Couponing? Yes!

For about a month I've been working on returning to my former way of grocery shopping. Since about the time my oldest was born, I started clipping coupons as a rule for shopping. It pained me to ever pay full price for anything I purchased, especially at the grocery store.

Bargain shopping became a way of life. For example, my hubby would ask me what we were having for dinner to which I would respond "whatever was on sale this week!" This rule was particularly important with meats. Once I saw what was on sale in the meats department, I would try to plan the rest of my meal around it. Sure, pork loin might sound good, but if it was full price we'd be eating something else.

Over the last year or so our schedule had changed considerably and forced me into making smaller and less frugal shopping trips. I slipped into the routine of buying whatever sounded good and picking up items on a whim because I wasn't sure when I'd have time to get to the store again (or wa…

Merle's and Juice in the City

It's time to start thinking of some great places to hang out this summer. If you can combine good food and good friends with a great atmosphere, you can be sure you've got a fun memory in the making!

Merle's of Littleton has been one of our favorite spots in Old Littleton since it opened just a few years ago. This fun corner restaurant on Main Street has some of the best food in town. Live music can be heard during the summer months and you can find that listing HERE when they post it. The menu is full of fantastic flavors that will keep you coming back. You simply have to try the fried pickle chips - yum!!

And thanks to Juice in the City, you can get your Merle's for 52% off!! The offer is good for $25 worth of food and drinks for just $12 - and you can purchase more than one. Don't miss this great deal and the chance to sit on the rooftop with amazing views of the Rockies. Or sit down stairs on a warm night while the garage door walls are open - true story! (Fun …

A Golden Opportunity

The little town with a big heart: Golden, Colorado!

There is something for everyone in this treasure of a town that's closer than you think. Or, closer than I thought. For years I thought of Golden as this far off town with a big brewery. But from south metro Denver you're just a quick spin on C470 away from downtown Golden. In less than 40 minutes you can be a world away from the every day.

Kids will love exploring and you'll love a chance to relax and soak in the beauty and history. Start with a stroll along Clear Creek and enjoy the sculptures that tell a story of the land. You might even get to watch the kayaking crowd practicing on the creek.

 Part of the History Park on Clear Creek
Then head into Golden Sweets for a scoop or two of delicious ice cream (local, I believe) or try their delectable selection of candy! Yum!

If a cup of coffee and a cozy place to sit is more your style, then try the Windy Saddle where you can let the kids hang-out in the small kids room whil…

A Sigh, But No Tears

Today as I was picking up my son from preschool, I noticed a mother calling to her child. The little girl was no more than 2 years old and the mother was firmly calling to her from about 10 yard away, "You need to come here right now. It's time to pick up your brother!"

As luck would have it, I was passing the little girl at the exact moment that she responded to her exasperated mother. Her response? "No." She said it very plainly and matter-of-factly. She had no intention of moving from where she was unless properly prodded by her mother. And the wise mother that she surely was chose not to let the situation escalate, and instead promptly closed the distance between herself and her child and swooped her up into her arms and proceeded into the preschool.

I sighed and smiled as I watched this brief interaction.

I see these vignettes of motherhood every day as I walk the halls of both my son's preschool and my daughter's elementary school. The scenes chan…

Easter Services

I noticed there were a lot of page views lately from my post last year for the Easter Service at Red Rocks. Click here for the updated link for this years service.

I saw too that there is a sunrise service this Easter at Clement Park & Cornerstone Park presented by Horizon Christian Fellowship. More details can be found HERE.

And of course, our church is going to have some great Easter activities. Find out the details for Calvary Baptist in Englewood at TheCalvary.org.

A Promise to Myself, I Couldn't Keep

Sometimes I wonder who is actually running my life. Maybe you've felt like this recently. I make small and seemingly insignificant choices about how I spend my time that somehow add up to insanity. School, work, play ... it can all a wild ride from sun up to sun down. The good news is, I do know who is running my life and He knows the desires of my heart.

So the promise I couldn't keep was one I made to myself about 2 weeks ago. I promised I was going to be the writer I wanted to be and start writing/blogging everyday. I've done it before, I could easily do it again! It's been about two weeks and still nothing. Which makes me wonder about the real desires of my heart.

We can save that for another post.

I do love writing and interacting with all of my friends online! It's a wonderful challenge to think of new and interesting things to share. It's entertaining to communicate stories of life "in the trenches" of motherhood. And I write what is on my mind…

Photo of the Week

I got a good laugh when I saw these three pairs of shoes sitting side-by-side at my back door yesterday. I had to share the picture!

Rain galoshes, snow boots and flip flops - all of which were legitimately worn within 24 hours for various forms of weather. Give a shout if you had summer and winter shoes rubbing soles this week!

Art Week for Spring Break

Monday morning the paints came out. Everyone was still in their pajamas, but creativity was on the rise just thinking about an entire day with nowhere to be and nothing scheduled to do!

One six-foot collage later I knew exactly what our theme for the week would be: Art!

Tuesday was a trip to the arts and crafts store for a few additional supplies: more brushes, water color paper, palates, and canvases. The day also included a trip to the library to procure a litany of books on the subject of art. Although the two trips took a considerable portion of the day, we still ended the day with new art on display.



First, we poured over the lovely pages of the children's art book that sample art throughout history. My daughter was particularly fond of the Matisse style paintings. I renewed my love for Degas. My son found his inner cartoonist.


Our goal is to end the week with a more permanent work - one on canvas - that will be displayed in our home for years to come! I will report back.

Staycation Success!

For those of you waiting on the promised report on our recent "staycation" let me apologize for the delay. That may be a window into how things went after taking 3 days off from the daily grind.

Even thought it took a little extra work getting back into the swing of things, I will gladly share that our staycation was perfect! Thursday afternoon until Sunday afternoon was the time frame for our at-home getaway. As I mentioned before, this could be a great experiment for families looking ahead to spring break in a few weeks. There is no reason you can't have a little vacation even if you are just staying at home. With some planning, you'll be on your way to some fun and relaxation!

Here's what we did:

We kicked off with pizza and games on Thursday night. Simple. Easy. Fun.Girls (mom and daughter) had a sleepover. Boys (dad and son) had a sleepover. (Ie. slept together in different rooms - beds full of stuffed animals!)Friday morning included a trip to Lamar's Do…

The Staycation Experiment

Spring Break is on the way and we won't be going anywhere. Truthfully, most families I know aren't taking any special trips for spring break. So, what do you do for a week at home?

The "fad" of staycations has fallen off the radar, but the idea remains a valid one: how do you have a relaxing, interesting, or exciting break from the norm while staying at home?

I've decided to do a a little experiment with our long weekend. Can we feel like we are getting away without really getting away?

Here's the plan:
No phone or email. I think it will be most important for the adults of the group (ie. mom and dad) to really take a break from the everyday.No chores. For kids and parents, we'll be taking a break from the "have to do's", but this will mean doing some extra time on the front end to make sure there aren't chores staring you in the face while trying to have fun. Eating out. Since there's no money being spent on travel expenses I thin…

Waving the White Flag

I could be just hours away from surrender.

The story begins in October of last year. I sat across from my daughter and shared with excitement that she could choose any activity she'd like to try this school year. Whatever she wanted to pursue, she had a promise that we would fund it and be committed to it on one simple condition: she needed to see it through.

Swimming became the activity of choice and we began our weekly trips to the local recreation center for lessons. Our common goal was that she would progress through the last three levels needed of lessons so that she would have all the skills she needs to be on a swim team this summer. We are entering the final level of lessons and there is only one problem: I'm over it.

After about six weeks, she was over it. At week 18, I'm ready to wave the white flag and surrender. I don't want to argue about going to practice. I don't want to schedule around swim lessons. I don't want to drive back and forth to the re…

Another Month Gone?!?

I almost didn't believe my computer when it showed that it has been almost a month since I posted! How is it possible? Where did the time go?

If you're reading this, my guess is you know the feeling. Since my last post we've had croup in our house along with at least three other viruses. We had Valentine's Day and a l-o-n-g President's Day weekend. We have been to several birthday parties and hosted out of town guests. It's also Girl Scout cookie time, so we've got that in the mix. (It took me about 3 hours to warm up after a very chilly cookie booth sale outside of our local Safeway grocery store on Monday!)

So long story short, I know exactly where the time went. It was spent doing what mom's do. I went to basketball games and swim lessons. And even though I spent my fair share of time behind the computer, it's difficult to squeeze in those extra few minutes to do "my thing."

It makes me wonder about the things we give up to be a mom. So…
