I tried my hand at homemade marshmallows!  They weren’t all that hard to make, even without a candy thermometer, but they were messy!  This is a project for a neat cook, someone who cleans as they go and uses metal utensils instead of their fingers.  I am a messy cook, and it sure made a big mess!  

I don’t think these are exactly good for you, they are pure sugar after all (with some gelatin), but they sure do taste good!

And they look good!  Do NOT ask why we have Christmas tree marshmallows…I suppose it was because I let the kids choose shapes.

super relaxed…

Larger than life!

I’m happy to share the recipe, and the marshmallows, just ask!


Kenan got the chance to burn off some energy at a local gymnastics club during the week Shana was away.
Sorry about the bad pictures, but I forgot to bring the camera on viewing day!




Shana just returned from her first week at sleepover summer camp! She loved it and had a great time. She learned all the rules and kept telling us: “those are the rules!”
Sorry for the short blog post but we forgot to bring the camera both at drop off and pick up!
