Marshmallow Bird Nests

Marshmallow Bird Nests

When I saw these bird nests on one of my favorite blogs, Enjoying the Small Things, I knew they’d be a perfect activity for Jax and I. She didn’t go into details, but they are very simple to make. I highly recommend reading her blog. Her photos and words are both so beautiful and I’ve been(…)

Easy Oreo Pops

Easy Oreo Pops

These are so good and so easy! I wanted something fun to round out this year’s cookie tins that would use up some extra candy-making supplies I had laying around. I still had candy sticks and bags from making chocolates for my baby shower two years ago! Oreos are already delicious, but put them on(…)

Delicious Vegetarian Recipes

Delicious Vegetarian Recipes

Say hello to my friend Katherine, aka OpalCat! While I am off in California visiting family, I asked her if she’d be willing to share some of her favorite kid-approved vegetarian recipes on Imagine Our Life. I’ve been vegetarian for almost 20 years! My husband was as well, but has since hopped on the meat-wagon,(…)

Apple Butter

Apple Butter

I made my first batch of apple butter this weekend. I also canned for the very first time! I was sure when I headed to be that I had messed something up somehow. I’d followed all the directions, but the buttons on the lids weren’t sucked in. I didn’t realize the jars had to cool(…)

Autumn Pumpkin Bread

Autumn Pumpkin Bread

Mmm! I love pumpkin bread in the fall (and all year round!) I’ve already baked 2 batches! The recipe I’ve used for years makes either 3 short loaves or 2 full size loaves. I like to split the batter into 3 pans so I can give extra loaves away. If you just make 2, you’d(…)

Cupcakes For Two

Cupcakes For Two

When I saw this post on How Sweet It Is, I knew I had to try it! So today before making lunch, Jax and I whipped up some. I also made a mini batch of chocolate frosting. The cupcakes were tasty, though I agree with the comments that they were heavy – more like muffins(…)

Homemade Baby Ice Cream

Homemade Baby Ice Cream

You may have seen “1 ingredient ice cream” recipes before. But, I call it baby ice cream! I recently had an ice cream party for my birthday, and since all the guests were bringing babies, I whipped up a batch of this frozen banana puree for them. Two out of three babies loved it! Here’s(…)

Keeping Raspberries Fresh

Keeping Raspberries Fresh

Yum! Raspberry season! I love to throw fresh raspberries into my yogurt or oatmeal in the morning, and frozen berries are great in smoothies. But how do you keep them fresh? I was getting so frustrated when I’d by a pint of raspberries and 2 days later, half of them would be moldy. What a(…)
