On the weekend, I picked up a loaf of Dempster’s ZERO bread and made my children a fun Olympic and early Valentine’s themed lunch. Children absolutely love it when food is presented to them in a … Continue reading

Making lunches fun is something that I love to do! I love to use cookie cutters and sandwich cutters to create fun shapes. I love to get creative with notes in my … Continue reading
