Homemade Pizza Pockets

Pizza pockets are easy to make at home. My family liked the sausage & mushroom-filled pockets and the spinach & three cheese-filled pockets but you could use whatever filling you want.

French Vanilla Ice Cream

There is something about homemade ice cream which is simply the best. Fortunately, making ice cream is so easy these days. You can stir the ice cream to reach your desired consistency. A word of warning, though: if you take a bite while it’s at milkshake or soft-serve consistency, you may never finish stirring it. It’s that good.

Strawberry & Blueberry Lemonade Popsicles

Making homemade lemonade with fruit purée was such a hit with my family that the natural progression was to turn the strawberry and blueberry lemonade into popsicles. Making popsicles is easier than you think and allows you to control the amount of sugar in them.

Chicken Dumpling Soup

One of my grandmother-in-law’s specialties was Chicken Dumpling Soup. Dumplings come in many forms and there are many countries and cuisines that have some form of chicken dumpling soup. From what I can tell, these dumplings most resemble those found in Hungary and Poland.

Natural Easter Egg Dyes

Appreciate the vivid colors and natural beauty of fruits, vegetables and spices: dye your Easter eggs with everyday foods rather than boxes of chemical colorings. This is a great family project and learning experience. Though it will take a little more planning than your basic Easter egg dye kit, I think you will find the extra time well worth it. Even though I’m a “grown-up,” I felt a child-like excitement watching the eggs turn colors in bowls of cabbage, spinach, blueberries and more!
