More on that in a later post with LOTS of pictures!

I hope that you are all getting into the groove of school, its taking some getting used to over here!! I have teamed up with some AWESOME Indiana bloggers for a Dog Days of Summer Dollar SALE!! Check out all of the goodies below and stay tuned for some vacation picture, SLANT box reveal and the first 3 weeks of school!!

Cooking Up a Great Year



 
I am so excited to be a part of this AMAZING blog hop! The giveaway is awesome! I kinda don't want to share it with you guys because I want to win it myself!!

I love cooking with my kindergarteners it helps with many academic skills and allows us to have some fun.
 

On Fridays we make a little snack, eat it then write, and draw about it. We call it Foodie Friday, I was inspired by Kindergarten Smorgasbord. Our snacks are based on what we are learning about that week. Here are some of the snacks that we made last year.





 
I get lots of ideas from Pinterest and tweak them to work in a classroom setting. Check out my Fun Kid Foods Board on Pinterest.
 
 
 
 
If you would like to start Foodie Friday in your classroom here is a great FREEBIE to get you started Cooking Our Way Through Kindergarten can be done whole group or as a literacy center after you make the snacks.

Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals

I am so excited to announce that I am joining forces with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you a new collaborative blog called Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals! With this blog, there will be approximately forty teachers sharing their excellent work in what we are calling a Dollar Steal!

What is a Dollar Steal, you ask?  Each day, one of my bloggy friends will be sharing a post about one of their products.  In their blog post, they will share a link to their product where you can purchase it for only $1.00.  Now here's the catch, you'll have to act fast because their sale will only last for THREE days.  After the three days, you can still grab their fabulous product, but it will be at it's original price.


I would love for you to hop over by clicking the button above and follow our new blog through email or Bloglovin in order to ensure that you catch all of our deals in a timely manner.  We are also giving away a $25 TeachersPayTeachers Gift Certificate.  You can enter by following us!!!

Thank you for joining me on this new and exciting experience.

Back to School BBQ Blog Hop






Can you believe its time to go back to school already?? This summer has gone by so quickly!
Back to school means back to a routine for most of us. No more staying up until midnight or sleeping in until noon. As much as I will miss the freedom of summer time I am excited to meet my new kiddos and get back to a routine! I can honestly say I haven't been the best cook this summer. Its just my husband and I and without a schedule our eating habits have suffered! Most nights its raid the fridge or granola with almond milk.



 One of my favorite tired and true recipes comes from Plain Chicken, she always has the most delicious and quick recipes. These Crescent Pepperoni Roll Ups are so fast and so yummy for those nights when dinner is the last thing of your mind. The best part about this recipe is how versatile it is. I have used ham, turkey and bacon in place of the pepperoni and I have used different cheeses.



Now for a little giveaway I am giving away a copy of my newest product Healthy Foods Write the Room.
