If your kids don’t like quinoa, trust me, they’ll like these. Quinoa patties are the best thing of my 2017. Seriously! They are so so good. We can eat an entire batch in one sitting. Including my daughter, who claims that she absolutely ‘hates’ quinoa. […]

I can’t believe this slime craze is still happening. I feel like it’s been a while since it exploded, and we were really late on the slime band wagon. But we are still finding it difficult to find glue around here, because everyone seems to be buying it in bulk to make SLIME! And here we are, doing the same thing! This recipe is the best slime recipe I’ve found so far. It makes the best slime, that doesn’t lose its consistency for a long time. (As long as you keep it in an airtight container.)
And we’ve found, through trial and error, although the chunky glitter slime is nice and sparkly and has a fun crunchy consistency, we like using fine glitter better. It’s less messy, doesn’t really shed glitter and the consistency is nice and well, SLIMY.
I also love using clear glue because we can do stuff like this:
There definitely is something cool about the slime consistency. It crackles and snaps. It oozes between your fingers. And it’s kind of mesmerizing. I totally get it. I totally get why kids like it! And making it is the funnest part of all.

Sushi doesn’t have to be daunting. All you need is a little rice and seaweed, which we always have on hand. And veggies of your choice. It doesn’t have to be fancy either. I do like to make real sushi rolls, but sometimes this DIY kids sushi plate will suffice. Plus, it’s cute. Cutting food into shapes makes all the difference to a kid. My kid anyway. She loves it. What’s not to like, right?! Toddler-approved. Kid-approved. And grown-up approved. Yup, my husband eats this too.

Today, I went all vegetarian. I just chopped up some avocado, cucumber and seaweed. The rice I used a rice mold which you can find here. I also chopped up some mango for dessert. The fruit and veggie cutters you can find here.
And the rest is up to Els. She likes to wrap up the rice and avocado in the seaweed wraps, and munch on the cucumbers at the same time. The mangos she saves for last.

I’m totally reminiscing right now of my daughter’s toddler days. Especially since I got sent these cute plates from Oogaa Baby! My first time winning something on Instagram! Aren’t they so cute?? So today, I decided to make my daughter a simple toddler breakfast. Haha. And she loved it.
These plates are actually perfect for her because she’s not a fan of her food touching (god forbid) the egg touches the pomegranates. Sigh. But I love that they are BPA and PVC free, non-toxic, and you can even bake with it in the oven. I cut her toast into star shapes, gave her a side of juicy pomegranates and a perfectly cooked over easy egg.

She loves dipping her toast into the yolk. Which by the way, is the only way she likes to eat her yolk. To cut out the stars, I used a star shaped fruit and vegetable cutter.
As for the egg, I love to cook our eggs on our little 5 inch cast iron pan. Heat a little olive oil a little under medium. And then carefully crack an egg while pan is hot. Let it cook for about 4 minutes. Then flip with a spatula carefully, and cook for another minute. The perfect over-easy egg. If you want the egg cooked all the way, let it cook for an extra minute or two until fully cooked through.
I’m thinking, I’m not just reminiscing, but totally having baby fever all over again. My little girl is growing up too quickly! *crying
