Mini Rice Krispie Treats Ice Cream Cones

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Rice Crispie Ice Cream Cones

Here’s a cute idea for treats or for a child’s birthday party. The ice cream cones are teeny, tiny – about 1-.75″ tall (Joy Kids Cones from Walmart).

A cookie scoop or small melon baller is used to form the ice cream from the Rice Krispie mixture, then drizzled with melted almond bark or candy melts.  To make the cones more stable, you can put some candy in the cone, then use the candy melts to “glue” the scoop to the cone.  See tutorial at Cute As a Fox.

20 Birthday Questions as They Grow

Monday, May 21st, 2012

20 Birthday Questions to ask as Your Kids Grow

As soon as children start talking, they are full of questions and usually, adults are doing all the answering.

A fun idea to do with your children is to ask them questions as they grow. Starting at age 3, and then every year on their birthday, ask them the same 20 questions and see how their answers change over the years!

This would make a great video as a collection of the answers each year to see how they’ve grown and matured. You could also take photos and make a book with your favorite photos and their answers through the years.

20 Questions on Your Birthday:

1. What is your favorite color?

2. What is your favorite toy?

3. What is your favorite fruit?

4. What is your favorite television show?

5. What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?

Summer Strawberry Pie Recipe

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Strawberry Pie Recipe

I love this Strawberry Pie recipe my mom makes. The filling is so good I could make a dessert of it poured over vanilla ice cream and topped with sliced strawberries.


1 pie crust shell, baked (9 – 12 inch pie pan)


  • 1-1/2 c water
  • 1-1/2 c sugar
  • 4 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 small box strawberry jello
  • 2-1/2 qt strawberries, fresh (or more!!! for taller pie!!)
  • Optional whipped cream or Cool Whip for topping or serve with vanilla ice cream


  1. In a saucepan, whisk together water, sugar and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  2. Add the strawberry Jell-O and whisk and stir until well blended and jello is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool (don’t let it get set, just cooled).
  3. Wash the strawberries, pat dry, remove the hulls. Depending on how you want your pie to look, cut strawberries in half  or leave them whole. Gently fold the strawberries into the Jell-O mixture.
  4. Pile the strawberries up in the baked pie shell to look like a hill.
  5. Refrigerate at least an hour.
  6. Serve as is or top with whipped cream, Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.
