Lori and I tried a recipe from the ALEX Kid Concoctions book and we wanted to share!

Just in time for Halloween, here is how to make Swamp and Snake Dessert:

You will need:
1 cup of pre-made vanilla pudding (we made a larger quantity and served ours as dessert for the whole family)
3-4 drops of green food coloring
Gummy snakes or worms
Crushed vanilla wafers

1. Mix the pudding and food coloring in a bowl until well blended.
2. Spoon the pudding into a dessert dish.
3. Sprinkle the top of the pudding with the crushed vanilla wafers.
4. Add gummy snakes or worms and serve.

Lori had fun stirring, scooping and, of course, tasting her wormy dessert! EWWW!

Fun in the Kitchen

My mother was an amazing cook – so amazing, in fact, that she held baking classes in our kitchen. I loved to watch her in action, whizzing from cabinet to tabletop, whipping up this, stirring in that, chatting away like the hostess of a cocktail party.

There’s a new book out by ALEX called Kid Concoctions: Weird Wacky & Wild Stuff You Can Make At Home! written by John E. and Danita Thomas. It is filled with all sorts of easy-to-make at-home concoctions. What kind of concoctions you ask? Things like slime, paints and even toys that kids can make on their own using everyday household items. I have the book and tried out the Super Sidewalk Paint with my girls.
