Bunny Paw Print Cookies

 

Bunny Paw Prints Cookies Easter

Since Easter is coming up soon, my kids and I decided to make a treat together that we could eat and also that we could share with others. We made these Bunny Paw Print Cookies and they turned out so yummy! Plus, the cookies were so soft, and they had just the right amount of icing to make them taste declicious. And my kids really enjoyed rolling the dough into small balls and making the indents on the cookies after they were baked.

 

The recipe to the Bunny Paw Print Cookies is below, but here are a few tips: Once you make the dough, you’ll use a Tablespoon measuring spoon of dough and roll it in a ball to make the foot of the paw print. Then make three toes by using a teaspoon measuring spoon and rolling 3 separate teaspoons of dough into balls. Place the three small dough balls next to the large dough ball on a cookie sheet. (I only placed 6 paw prints per cookie sheet.) Using two fingers slightly flattened the larger dough ball. This will help it bake more evenly. Continue rolling out balls of dough for the paw prints until all the dough is gone.

Bake the cookies at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes, no longer. Remove from the oven and immediately use a Tablespoon measuring spoon to make an indent on the foot of the cookies by pressing down and a teaspoon measuring spoon to make an indent on the toes of the cookies by pressing down. Then use the icing recipe below to add icing to the indents.

 

They turned out really cute! Here is the recipe how to make Bunny Paw Print Cookies:

Navajo Tacos and Indian Fry Bread

 

 

I love eating Navajo Tacos, also known as Indian Fry Bread. I especially have a lot of fond memories eating them on campouts. And after I eat one or two Navajo Tacos (because they are so good), then I always eat another one with honey butter on the fry bread. It is delicious! If you have never had honey butter on Indian Fry Bread, then you need to try it!

7 Make Ahead Freezer Meals

make ahead freezer mealsI love having make ahead freezer meals on hand especially on busy days when I don’t have much time to make dinner. If I have easy dinner ideas I can pull out of the freezer, this saves me from running to the store at the last minute or going to the drive-thru to purchase fast food. It takes time to plan and make freezer meals, but in the long run it saves you time and money.

I’ll admit that when I was planning out a week of freezer meals, I thought I would have time on one day to get all these freezer meals completed. Well, guess what? Life happened, and every day when I was trying to do the freezer meals, I would make one freezer meal and then that’s all the time I had. So I’ve learned that for me and my crazy schedule, I can only plan to make one or two freezer meals a day. And since most of the freezer meals make a double batch, I usually used one of the freezer meals for dinner that night and then I froze the other one. So for those of you busy moms like me, try only doing a few at a time like I did.

I really love this Broccoli Cheese Soup. It’s one of my favorite soups! Years ago, I made a broccoli cheese soup and I’ll admit that I didn’t love it, so I didn’t try making a broccoli cheese soup again for a while. Until recently, I tried a new recipe and I loved it! In addition, all my kids love it. My little boy loved it so much that he had two helpings of this soup before I could even sit down to eat. So this Broccoli Cheese Soup is one you’ll want to add to your family-friendly recipes. Here’s how to make the Broccoli Cheese Soup:

The Best Orange Pineapple Party Punch

Orange Pineapple Party Punch

Since I was a young child, I remember my mother making this Orange Pineapple Party Punch for holiday parties and special occasions. I always loved helping her mash the frozen punch into a punch bowl and stir in the soda. And we loved when she made it because it is delicious! I now make this for my family, and every time I make it, my little kids keep asking for more to drink because they love it too.

This punch is perfect for so many occasions throughout the year such as holidays, family parties or during the summer when it’s hot. We have even used this punch for family wedding receptions many times.

The Best Gingerbread House Frosting (Only 3 Ingredients)

gingerbread-house-frosting-final

One of our traditions as a family every year is to make gingerbread houses. The kids have so much fun decorating the houses themselves. Rather than purchasing a gingerbread house kit, I purchase graham crackers and make this Gingerbread House Frosting below that is seriously the best frosting that holds the graham crackers together and keeps the candy on the houses. Plus, it’s only 3 ingredients! Since holiday candy can be expensive if you purchase a lot of different decorating options for the gingerbread houses, the way I save some money is to choose and purchase a few holiday candies and then use leftover candy from Halloween or other holidays.
