how to clean and shine cloudy glassware

Please, please, PLEASE tell me I’m not the only one with glasses that look like this! I opened my cupboard the other day and I couldn’t find a single “clean” glass in there! Now, I know they are clean. They went through the dishwasher, at least. But every time they went through a cycle in there, they came out a little bit worse. So how do you get cloudy glassware all shiny and clean again? It’s easier than you may think!

Hot Air Balloon Craft for Kids

Ahhhhh……Spring is in the air! I love March and April. They are absolutely the BEST months to live in Southern California! The weather is just gorgeous-sunny and warm during the day (it was HOT today!) but the mornings are cool and the evenings are perfect for sitting outside. We don’t have to use the a/c yet because we sleep with the windows open to cool down the house overnight. Along with bringing in the new season, March is also National Reading Month. The older two boys have been participating in all sorts of reading activities for school so Charlie and I spent a fun afternoon reading and crafting!

Easter pudding cups

Everything about Easter is adorable. Little girls in frilly dresses, little boys in suits and ties, baby chicks, fluffy bunnies, pink flowers and pastels everywhere…YAY FOR SPRING! And since I’m so incredibly outnumbered around here, I have to grab on to the “cute” where I can. So even though the boys were largely unimpressed, I am really happy with how these fun little Easter pudding cups turned out. Plus, as you already know if you read my posts often, I really love marshmallows.

I’ve posted about S’mores so many times on the blog, you may be getting sick of it. I can’t help it. I just love marshmallows, and when you toast them and add chocolate and graham crackers, I can’t control myself. So when I saw a recipe for No Bake S’mores Cheesecake over on Sandra’s blog, A Dash of Sanity (love her!) I knew I had to try it.

Apple Cream Cheese Pizza

Apple Pizza with cream cheese sauce

So, tell me if this sounds familiar: you wake up and roll over and grab your phone to start checking messages. There are about 50 emails in your inbox waiting for your attention. Most of them are for department stores, discount ticket sales, blogs you follow and “membership” emails. But even though you NEVER open the emails, you also never unsubscribe from them. It’s just easier to swipe and delete than go through the steps to get off the list. But every once in a while, there’s a gem in one of those emails that grabs your attention. That’s the only reason I still get daily emails from Pillsbury. Because once in a while, I see a recipe that says, MAKE ME! So I do. And this Apple Cream Cheese Pizza was one of those special recipes that caught my attention!

Peeps House: easy Easter activity

Easter peeps house activity for kids

I really had a hard time trying to figure out how to categorize this fun little Easter idea I saw on Pinterest via Yesterfood! It’s not a recipe, although it is made out of food. It’s not really a craft, because you don’t use your standard crafting supplies, even though it’s pretty enough to display when you’re done. So I came up with the overly generic term: Easter activity. I’m still not happy with it, so if you have a clever name for these adorable Peeps Houses, then by all means, leave me a note below in the comments! :) No matter what you call them, these are easy to make and they taste yummy, too!
