de wafelbakkers

Today we have a cute little food art idea for you! We typically don’t have a lot of time in the mornings but our kids always, always appreciate creative gestures like these, so we found one great shortcut to help make this fun project doable. Frozen pancakes! We’ve loved a good frozen waffle for years, but had never tried a pancake — these are De Wafelbakkers and were perfect!

SUNSHINE:Pancake Art

Sliced oranges and nectarines with an orange infused syrup. To make the syrup simply bring 1 cup of your favorite maple syrup and the zest and juice of two oranges to a boil on the stove. Reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes and enjoy!

Pancake Art

Take two large buttermilk pancakes and one small. Cover the first large in chocolate hazelnut spread. Cut the second large pancake down the center and set on top the first with a triangle of the Nutella showing. Layer thinly sliced strawberries and top with halved blueberries. For the head, slice a mini pancake in half and top with cake decorating pearls.


Pancake Art

This panda is one large pancake and two mini. Taking Nutella spread on one halved mini pancake for the ears, and spread on tear drop shapes with blueberry eyes onto the large. Take one more mini for the nose and spread on a nose.




This one is a savory pancake! Taking your favorite tzatziki (a yogurt and cucumber dip, we love Costco’s!) to one large pancake. Then top with thinly sliced cucumbers. Totally refreshing and tasty, and a great lunch option! Even better with sliced turkey.

Thanks to De Wafelbakkers for helping execute this quick ideas! You can find De Wafelbakkers in most major retailers in the frozen breakfast aisle (find a store near you here.) Just look for these:De Wafelbakkers

oakwood homes progressive dinner

With all of us in the same zip code we always like an excuse to hang out together while supporting local businesses and their endeavors and somehow calling it work. Life’s funny sometimes isn’t it? Today’s quick recap was a fun night out with Oakwood Homes which is a local builder that is popping up everywhere. They had us tour their homes in South Jordan which might be the prettiest place to build a home we’ve seen in awhile. Way to go South Jordan! Here’s some of our favorite aspects of the homes we peeked in at.

FIRST! Each of their main floor living spaces had these wall to wall windows. So stunning!! Oakwood Homes

You can also see they have really open floor plans, loads of space for gathering and hosting and luxe additions at every turn. This might be more of their awesome Interior Designer’s job but they used color so well in each space we toured. Dramatic, deep, vibrant hues that make the spaces feel modern and inviting.Oakwood Homes Oakwood Homes


Everything felt on trend but not trendy. Nodding to the styles that home builders are wanting but not over the top where it will be dated in five years.

Our favorite part of any work event, the food! While we snacked away on a summer BBQ Stuart Edge the magician entertained us. Blew our minds really. We’re trying to talk him into our next kiddos’ birthday party. He’s GOOD! Photo credit to @alyciagrayce of Crowley Party.

Oh Joy To The Rescue!

Last week Jenna was able to attend the launch of our friend Joy Cho’s collaboration with Band-Aid brand! We have a special place in our heart for Joy for many reasons, but when our blog was in it’s infancy she opened up her home and let us film her family for our Small Fry Films series. We were such a baby blog and for Joy to support us and work with us on that project has always solidified her in our minds as a friend.BAEph6s85-3O4wU_X1gAFbKlghq2T9Dt5Z4Kdiy-tk0

Since that filming Joy has taken over the world with her flawless collaborations and her Band-Aid brand collab is no different. As if your children couldn’t love Band-Aids more–these fun and quirky designs are enough to make you yearn for a scraped knee.suzvk26EmzGXmpkDlS3oOxzL-QHQJmva_uX45v_oJo0,mFyWjR2k6UO5PpZ7Fpa3IGOJsmSt92oR58U5mBJs1o4
