Sweet Frog

Sweet Frog

I absolutely love going to Sweet Frog with my mom. If you’ve never been it’s a frozen yogurt place with a massive topping bar. It’s all self serve, the frozen yogurt regularly changes and the prices are reasonable.

Some of my favorites~

What’s Cookin’ in Js Kitchen?

What’s Cookin’ in Js Kitchen?

My family has owned and operated a local restaurant for four generations. I order dinner there nearly every night and as any person who eats at the same place over and over again sometimes one gets bored of chicken, fish, burgers and pasta…I try to eat healthy too so chicken and fish get rather boring. It’s nice to spice things up every now and then which is why I’m so lucky we have a chef there who is imaginative, creative and so nice that he always cooks meals special for me. All I have to say is “can you please make me something”…His response “sure, what do you want”…My response “Surprise me” and I have never once been disappointed by any surprises. His cooking is phenomenal and I always crave his cooking….Below are some of the special dishes he has created for me which are not on our menu.

Easter Peep Centerpiece

Easter Peep Centerpiece

First, I planned on making this Easter Peep Topiary that I saw on Pinterest…for my nieces’ first birthday  (Easter themed)

Two words for you…

EPIC FAIL!

The problem was those things are top heavy so it didn’t matter the kind of base I had, how much hot glue I used to what size styrofoam ball I used I had the same result. 

The other problem was the peeps refused to stay on the toothpicks. 

However

Since I had several boxes of Peeps I needed to do something with them so I made something much easier and I was pleased with the results and the kiddos loved it.

I feel like there may be an easier way to figuring out Peep Trees and I’ll probably try again. Considering my niece’s birthday falls just a few days before Easter I feel like we’ll have plenty more opportunities.
