DIY Nursery Art

My son is obsessed with Toy Story. Enough so that we had to do a Toy Story party for his 4th birthday. I’m saving the party planning details for a later blog post, but the cupcake tree I made deserves its own post. And here is a closeup of some of the aliens to give […]

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Chicken

Ingredients in Slow Cooker

My picky toddlers gobbled this up, so this meal is a win for me! The best part is that it requires less than 5 minutes of prep before it goes into your slow cooker. I would have loved to make my barbeque sauce from scratch, but I was short on time on a weeknight. So, […]
