While you can’t go wrong with a juicy burger, you can give it an amazing face lift by introducing a few contemporary toppings. Juicy grilled burgers are served on seasoned, toasted buns with a thick layer of creamy, melted shredded mozzarella. Slather them with a layer of robust pizza sauce, and topped off with a heaping helping of sliced pepperoni on top. And while the idea may seem avant garde, one bite will seal the deal that these appeal to any generation.

Butterfinger Crusted Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

We’ve sandwiched our favorite slow churned vanilla ice cream between a layer of perfectly cooked sugar cookies before dipping and crusting the sides in a layer of crushed Butterfinger bars. Homemade ice cream cookie sandwiches will never be the same. And how could they really be complete without a yummy candy crust? Butterfinger Crusted Sugar Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches are the new dessert craze.

Bacon Lettuce Tomato Waffle-Wiches

The BLT is a much beloved, stand by sandwich and we’ve made sure to honor that, but also give it a quirky update fit for the modern millennial. Fresh slices of juicy ripe tomatoes, crisp pieces of lettuce, and perfectly cooked pieces of thick-cut bacon along with a creamy herbed mayo spread and some salt and pepper for seasoning. Such a simple sandwich filling, and yet exploding with vibrant flavors. It’s all sandwiched between two toasted waffles for that ideal crunch in every bite.

Baked Spaghetti Pie with Pepperoni

Do you remember where you went or who came over for one of the biggest milestones of your elementary school life? What event you may be wondering, since at that age there are so many ‘firsts’ to choose from– your first sleep over. The youngest son finally got to have one this Fall and if you could die from excitement– he’d have been a goner. Everything had to be perfect–even dinner, so when he requested spaghetti pie (and let me know he actually meant a spaghetti pie) I knew I had to come up with something to fit the bill. He thought my idea for a baked spaghetti pie with pepperoni sounded perfect.

PEEPS Pudding Cups

Whether you love ’em or hate ’em, EITHER WAY, Peeps play an iconic role in Easter candy every year and for sure in my kids’ Easter baskets. My husband swears there’s nothing greater than a stale peep and they all look forward to seeing the newest creations every year. I thought the Hubs would lose his mind when he discovered orange cream Peeps, dipped in Orange Cream fudge a few weeks ago. So yeah, Peeps. I thought I’d show him and the kids a new way to enjoy their favorite Easter treats: PEEPS Pudding Cups!

Despicable Me ‘Minion’ Easter Eggs

The sons all love the minions. Even my teens packed the couch for the newest installment of the franchise. I’ve actually had to take the fart gun away on occasion because while living in a house of dudes I can appreciate a good fart joke (obviously, I’m the one who bought them the thing), but even I have my limits some days. Still the Minions are adorable and they made the perfect little Easter egg craft, especially for the youngest son’s little hands. He though the idea was amazing, and it was simple enough for him to execute with minimal help from Mom. Any project that he can do on his own is almost always a hit, I mean who knew that 6 was the new 16? Mr. Independent!

Snow Ice Cream

All winter long my boys eagerly watch the weather forecast and jump at the chance of snow. You’d think the first thing they would do is pull the ‘Winter’ bag out of the closet and get their bibs and boots ready. Or that they’d be scouring the scrolling bar at the bottom of the news screen for the latest in school closings. Nope. They first thing my kids do at the mention of coming snow is set out every big mixing bowl and soup pot I have on our porch. Those bowls will collect as much fresh snow fall as possible to use in their favorite Winter treat: Snow Cream. And it’s a tradition we gleefully honor every Winter, with every snow fall.
