Homemade Chocolate Chip Creamsicles!

Oh summer! How I love thee! Kids outside playing. Pool is filled up. (Who cares if it's just a kiddie pool? Don't judge me.) Baseball is happening. (Course, isn't always baseball happening? I mean, they start in March and go to October...what other sport does that?!) A lot of good is to be had during summer.

One thing that is REALLY good to do in the summer is to make homemade creamsicles. (Course, it's really good any time of the year. Again, don't judge me.) Now, I don't know if there's an official definition of what goes into a creamsicle versus a popsicle. But, to my little ol' noggin, a creamsicle is ice cream based and a popsicle isn't.

Ahh...the life of a Stay-At-Home Mom when the afternoon rolls around and your preschoolers ask you "Can we have a snack?" There's the usual suspects around our house: veggies & dip, pretzels, various fruits (apples, oranges and bananas being the most popular), and popcorn.

Freezer Friendly Baked Oatmeal Cups

Breakfast is the bomb diggity. (Do kids even say that anymore?) What's not to love? But it's hard to find a good middle ground in between the ease and convenience of cereal and the heartiness of a full eggs, bacon & toast spread. This is that middle ground!

Once prepared, it's as easy as cereal, but it's as hearty as eggs. And, if need be, it's easily held to be eaten in a car or at a school bus stop or while curling your hair.

And if variety is the spice of your life, then this is also a recipe for you! Make them plain - they're delicious! Make them with chocolate chips - they're delicious! Make them with blueberries - they're delicious! There are other choices too - strawberries or diced apple pieces. Delicious! Delicious! Delicious!

In addition to delicious, they're easy to make. Just 1 bowl. Don't even need a mixer - just a sturdy spoon. Read More...
