Guest Blogger- Little Momma & Co.

We need just a bit more time to get through the amazing recipe entries. We are deciding the last few and will have them all up on Monday.  Enjoy Little Momma....is she amazing, or what?

What have we been up to this last month? Let's take a look!
.
You know I always love pulling my kids into the kitchen. Wait until you see what we've made!

We've been plagued with long Indian summers here in Texas, and not that that's a bad thing-- if you have something to keep you cool.
.
We like air conditioning, swimming pools, and frosty batches of:


Do you have a popsicle mold handy? If not, just use paper cups topped with tin foil and a popsicle stick. Voila!
.
Are you suffering a long dose of summer heat too? Make some of these!


Yogurt Pops

1 container of yogurt
your choice of fruit
¼ C milk
2-3 ice cubes
1 T honey

Throw everything into a blender, and blend until creamy. Pour into popsicle mold, or paper cups and popsicle sticks. Freeze until set.

...

I have an odd fascination with popcorn balls, so I jumped at the chance to make these:

The boys had a good time shaping them into the corn cob shape, and of course --anything eaten off of a stick is a friend of ours.

Are you a fan of popcorn balls too? Try these!

Indian Corn
10 cups of popped popcorn
1 C brown sugar
¾ C water
¼ C corn syrup
¾ t vinegar
½ C golden raisins
½ C purple raisins
wooden skewers

In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, water, corn syrup, and vinegar. Cook and stir over medium high heat until the mixture boils and reaches the hard ball stage (250). This will take about 15 to 20 minutes. Pour sugar mixture on top of popcorn and add raisins. Stir until all ingredients are coated. Using buttered hands, shape mixture onto sticks to resemble ears of corn. Serve the same day.

...

I love nostalgic baking. I love things that remind me of my childhood and make me feel like a kid again. These do exactly that:Oh my goodness, this recipe was like striking gold! My boys adored these-- both the prep and the consumption!

Do you like snails of the edible variety? Make some!

Cinnamon Snails

4 slices of soft texture bread
¼ C cream cheese
3 T sugar
1 ½ t cinnamon
¼ C melted butter or margarine

Trim the crusts from the bread slices. Spread 1 T of the cream cheese on each piece of bread. Roll up the bread slices with the cream cheese on the inside. Cut each roll into thirds.
Stir together sugar and cinnamon. Dip each roll into butter and then into cinnamon sugar (do not dip the swirly ends of the rolls) Place rolls, seam side down on a ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, or until light brown and crisp. Makes 12.

...
I have a secret crush on peanut butter. It's next in line next to chocolate, but I don't feel quite as guilty eating it because it seems healthier. Going along with the bug theme, my boys and I had a great time creating these little cuties:

I think the best part was getting to make the cocoa powder stripes and stick in the almond wings!


Honeybees
1/2 C peanut butter
1 T honey
1/3 c dry milk
2 T sesame seeds
2 T wheat germ
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Sliced almonds

In a mixing bowl, mix together the peanut butter and honey. Stir in the dried milk, sesame seeds, and wheat germ until well mixed.

Using a teaspoon at a time, shape the peanut butter mixture into ovals to look like bees. Dip a toothpick into cocoa powder and then press gently across the top of the bees to make stripes. Stick in almonds for wings. Chill 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Makes 28.

...
I always save the best for last! I found this idea in Family Fun magazine and just couldn't resist. I love miniatures, and this just seemed like the perfect project for little hands: (What child can eat a whole caramel apple by themselves anyway?)

Just use a melon baller to scoop little balls out of an apple. Add a stick, dip into melted butterscotch chips, and coat with your choice of toppings!

I loved this one so much, I made a double batch. They were fun and delicious!
.
Get your kids in the kitchen and cooking today!
