Halloween Fun--"Crazy Grape Bugs"

Happy Tasty Thursday and (almost) Halloween!

I love Halloween it's such a fun Holiday! Dressing up and treats--what can be more fun?! With the boys, I make sure everything is in moderation when it comes to treats. I know they will enjoy trick or treating and getting candy this weekend, but I want them to see a fun way to enjoy the Holiday that includes healthy practices too. The best way for kids to enjoy healthy food? Let them play with it and have fun!

Birthday Fun and Frosting Recipe

Monday was my youngest son's birthday, he turned 4! Naturally, we had to have a special treat so we made cupcakes for his party. I've been making my son's birthday cakes from scratch since their first birthday parties.

Making your own cake from scratch is not only easy, it's delicious! You know what you're eating and you can pronounce it all. That means your body recognizes it as food and it can deliver the nutrients accordingly.

So, to put my two favorite things together in a healthy recipe I can feel good about is HEAVEN. This dessert recipe whips up quickly with little energy!
