Kids aren’t the only ones who dress up and have fun on Halloween. It’s a fun holiday for adults, too – and costumes are just the beginning. Dressing up and going to a Halloween party with your adult friends while the kids are out collecting candy is a great way to relax and channel your inner child. The right Halloween snacks and drinks make every Halloween party even more fun. It’s better than trick-or-treating for candy and gives you a chance to feel like a kid again. [Read more…]

We’re so excited about this Thanksgiving Food Crafts Collection! Before we get to that, let’s have a little history lesson. An EASY history lesson!
In 1621, Thanksgiving was much different than it is today. Thanksgiving was a harvest shared between the new colonists and the Indians in America. It was a celebration of a successful harvest. Today we celebrate it in remembrance. It’s a fun time and these treats and crafts below are a great way to show our spirit! I love some of these as Thanksgiving party foods or decorations and they are super easy to make! Take a look below and enjoy! From Sisters Know Best to you and yours, Happy Thanksgiving! [Read more…]

I usually make a large amount for a party but below is a potato salad recipe for a few people that serves 4-5. [Read more…]
It’s the dead of winter here in Maine. Yup, everything “garden-y” is dead. Kind of depressing unless you buy fun green veggies and make amazing salads that encourage thoughts of warmer times to come. Enter in Kale Salad!
Years ago a friend had given me some kale from her garden. Oh, goody I thought. Then I was embarrassed not to know how to eat it — cook it? chop it? steam it? add to soups? Absolutely all of those things can be done with kale! I haven’t forgotten the kale chips that are all the rage now, but it’s not something I have done — yet.
This version of kale salad is best enjoyed the following day. The kale will soften some and the flavors will meld into a deliciousness that is worth the wait. Trust me! [Read more…]
This tutorial is to learn how to make cream cheese and black olive penguins. They are the cutest and easiest fun with food project I’ve ever done! I made them with a 13 year old and she was blown away by the cuteness factor! We also made an igloo cheese ball for them. Our part guests loved the idea, the cheese ball igloo was yummy, and the penguins… well, no one ate them because they were just too cute!
As Bill from the Wayward Wanderers travel blog pointed out, it’s not very often people are going to search for “How To Make a Cheese Ball Igloo” especially for cream cheese and black olive penguins, but it is a needed tutorial.
We decided to do this for game night at our house and it was a big hit! It just so happened we had a snowstorm the same day so the wintery theme of this project tied together perfect! This was one of my favorite projects to make and I hope you enjoy it also! [Read more…]
