Peanut Butter Chocolate Farfel Cups!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Farfel Cups!

This is the easiest and tastiest no-bake chocolate Passover treat of all time! There is nothing easier than a dump-and-stir recipe, and this is one for Passover the whole family will enjoy. Matzo farfel (broken bits of matzo that you can buy in a box or canister at the grocery store) is mixed with melted chocolate chips and peanut butter and then set in paper candy cups. The size of a mini muffin but packed with big flavor, these Passover dessert bites are as delicious as they are easy to make. In fact, this is the ideal “cooking” project for little kids.

Mom Hack: Make Frozen Cookie Dough from Your Halloween Candy!

Now that Halloween has passed, you’re probably ready to get your kids’ candy out of the house. There are lots of good places to donate, from shelters to toy stores (think The Toy Post for a $5 gift card!) to dentists’ offices to the military, but we stumbled upon this smart idea from The Baker Mama and wanted to share it. This freezable dough uses up your Halloween candy, and you’re ready for any last minute bake sale request from school – win-win!

Squash Toast – Cold Weather YUMMMMMMMINESS!

Squash Toast – Cold Weather YUMMMMMMMINESS!

As the colder weather sets in, we wanted to share this Butternut Squash Toast from local mom and nutritionist, Robin Barrie! (We know that avocado gets the most glory on a regular basis.) Toast is a blank canvas that can be topped with a variety of items.  Plus, it’s a warm alternative to a cold sandwich or salad this time of year.  Butternut squash is in season and delish right now. It is a great source of carotenoids, which benefit healthy eyes and smooth skin….yummmmm!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe!

We’re calling it now—pumpkin bread is the new banana bread. And besides the fact that it is a delicious fall treat, the beta-carotene in pumpkin (converted to Vitamin A in the body) is a true powerhouse vitamin. It boosts the immune system, promotes eye health and helps prevents sun damage! We love the recipe below from The Local Moms Network contributor Maria Provenzano because it uses ingredients you probably already have and is simple, making it a great activity to do with kids.
