Tips-y Tuesdays: Last Minute Tips

Sometimes I go to make a recipe and think I have all of the necessary ingredients but then forget something. This seems to happen a lot lately. Almost like I’m sleep-deprived? Hahaha. Well, anyway, it’s not like I have all of the time to just run out and pick up what I need when I realize it, so I have learned to be flexible.

Fudgelet and Chiplet Adventures (part 2): Assorted Big and Small Kid Activities with a Bin

Sometimes I come up with activities that are designed for the Chiplet but then the Fudgelet wants to do them, too. So, you can decide for your kids if these are suitable for your 1-2-3-4-5 year olds.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Seeking Flavor

I actually haven’t been making as many new recipes as of late. With us traveling this summer, and then getting ready for the start of the school year, I’ve been sticking with more of our regular flavors. Also, I did lots of grilling these past few months. Lots of the same marinades/recipes for that since we like them and can only get them for part of the year.

Our second to last every other month update for the Chiplet because we have his 2 year update and that’s it for half a year. Speaking of, I am done doing updates for the Fudgelet on here.

Topic-Changing Thursdays: The Fudgelet is 5 Years Old!

If you want to, feel free to go back in time a bit…whether it is 1 year ago, 2 years ago, 3 years ago, or 4 years ago. Because now, we are at 5 years old! I do believe it a bit more, especially comparing the Fudgelet to the Chiplet. Sometimes I look at him and it’s a feeling of “whoa you really look so much older” and it is exciting that he is a kid and not a toddler or baby anymore.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Curiously Successful

Sometimes I make recipes and want to try making them again not because they were completely satisfactory but because I am curious about how they turned out. This is a bit hard to explain, but basically the recipes are not overly complicated/weird, the end result is edible and potentially pleasant, but there is something not quite right which might require further experimentation.

Let’s start with donuts!
