What’s the best part of the holidays? Having your babies help you in the kitchen! My two-year-old wanted to help me cook and I couldn’t find anything for her to do that didn’t involve a hot pan, a burning oven, or a sharp knife! I took out the crescent rolls so she could play with the dough and that’s when this fun idea came into my head. These little crescent roll messages are so fun and the perfect project for any little one. (Note: I used regular store bought crescent rolls for this.) Directions
I’m not sure what to say about this. I think the picture speaks for itself. This is my amazing guacamole served in a totally disgusting way, but I LOVE it! And the actual guacamole recipe is incredible. I actually pride myself on making excellent guacamole. You can always add or subtract (If you don’t like any heat take out the hot sauce. If you love cilantro by all means add it.) Guacamole is one of those fun recipes you can really play around with. And, the pumpkin …. Papa carved it for me. Talk about getting into the Halloween spirit! Ingredients

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I go all out. We decorate our entire house then have everyone over for a Halloween party full of yummy food, spooky treats, and a night of Trick or Treating! This is one of those spooky desserts that I have always seen, but never actually made ….. until this Halloween. Note:I served my cookies on a napkin lined platter. I used red food coloring to make the “blood spots” and I put a kitchen knife on the tray with more red food coloring. If you are serving to children obviously skip the knife!
