Making Hawaiian Shaved Ice at Home!

It's a beautiful weekend here in Southern California. During our nightly reading, in one of our Hawaii stories, we'd read about how much we enjoyed eating Hawaiian Shaved Ice. 
Ian - Can we please have shaved ice this weekend? 
I think we can arrange that buddy.

A Flamin' Hot Cheetos Popcorn Taste Test Comparison

It's time for another Cheetos Popcorn Taste Test. Earlier this year we compared the regular Cheetos Popcorn to Crunchy Cheetos. This time we're firing things up a bit and trying out the Flamin' Hot version, along side both Cheetos Flamin' Hot Puffs and Cheetos Flamin' Hot Crunchy. It's going to be a hot one today!

The color of the day is definitely Flamin' Hot Red.

Making El Pollo Inka at Home!

Tonight we're recreating a Southern Californian original. El Pollo Inka is a Peruvian restaurant, started in 1987 in Lawndale California. Theresa and I end up going here a lot for their lunch specials to break up our work day. Their food is pretty delicious, so I think I we're going to take a shot at recreating it at home!

Alli gets burned

Phew! Well it's not always sunshine and rainbows.
Sometimes things go wrong too. Thankfully she's back home and feeling better. Good thing Alli is a tough cookie.

Pizza at Home - White Sauce Garlic Chicken and Spinach pizza

Happy Sunday! As it has been for the last few months, Sunday means pizza day at our house. And I've been attempting to make a new style of homemade pizza every week! Tonight we're changing thing up from our usual red sauce pizzas and going with a white sauce pizza. The toppings I most associate with white pizza are chicken and spinach, so that's what I'll be making tonight. Let's hope it's delicious!

Saturday Morning Cereals - Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros

We've got another round of cereals coming up and they all have to do with Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Before this, I really didn't know that there were all that many flavors. For our first cereal, we're having Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros! Since we like to taste it along with something, let's have it with homemade Churros!

Here's a look at the front of the box. Looks like it's Cinnamon Sugar Crunch!
