Shamrock Potato Stamp

By Nicole. How’s that for an Irish sounding post title? Here’s how you can make everything a little luckier with a simple potato. Ready?Just grab a standard potato, the larger the better so you have plenty of room, and a sharp paring knife. Cut the potato in half and decide your shape size.

St. Patrick's Day Skewers

Photography by Jylare. Today we put together a super easy fruit and veggie skewer with accompanying dip recipes. They are as tasty and healthy as they are simple and quick to whip up! We’ve found that most kids (not all) will eat even the most offensive of vegetables (they’re looking at you, broccoli) if there’s a tasty dip nearby, even if those dips are two ingredients or less! So, here’s what you’ll do: Grab all the green fruits and veggies you have on hand. We used kiwi, green apples, and green grapes for the fruit skewer. Then for the veggie skewer cucumber, … Read more
