ice cream sandwich sparklers!

This will not come as a surprise to you–the Hungry Kid loves a little sparkle. The flashier, the better–as far as she is concerned, and this summertime treat certainly fits the bill. The mom in me–read practical–likes these treats because the cupcake liners & ‘handles’ keep little hands clean (or, cleaner), and the mini-size of…

the famous burrito blanket

Necessity is the mother of all invention, or so they say. That certainly is the case with this DIY–my Hungry Kid loves Mexican food. But throw a burrito her way–and forget about it.

After a week jam-packed with rehearsals, auditions, and memorization my sweet girl made her acting debut tonight as the lead actress  as Sofia, in the play ‘Sofia the First’. It was an unbelievably sweet evening–one full of great successes, new friendships and the budding of a great love of the dramatic arts. An evening with…

what dad really wants for father’s day.

It should come as no surprise that the hungry kid also has a hungry dad. And, while hungry dad likes to eat–most foods really–hungry dad really likes bacon. I bet your dad does too. Because, the fact is: most dads do. And most moms, most kids, most grandmas–most humans like bacon. That’s the really great thing about this…

DIY tutorial: Fruit Roll-up Diplomas

I mentioned yesterday that Hungry Kid is ‘graduating’ from Kindergarten later this week. While I confess I had visions of mortar boards, black gowns and pomp & circumstance, I settled for these cute (and edible) ‘diplomas’. They were a hit!

Today she celebrated Very Important Person day at school–which led me, Hungry Mom, to prepare snacks for the students and parents to enjoy during the celebration. I don’t know about your kids, but when Hungry Kid has something exciting happening…
