Favorite Thing: EZ Squeezes Refillable Pouches

Hi friends!  I have a new favorite thing that I wanted to share with you.  The best $9.99 that I've spent in a while.

My baby loves to eat (or rather suck on) baby food pouches.  However, they're a little pricey, but it's the only way that my baby will eat baby food.  He won't eat it on a spoon.  My local grocery store was out of my favorite cheap brand for almost a month and I was sad.  Then I saw these refillable pouches online and bought them.

They are a hit with all my kids! 

My four year old took one filled with homemade applesauce to preschool for his snack. 

My second grader took a pouch filled with yogurt to school in his lunchbox. 
My baby has enjoyed applesauce, pureed bottled peaches, yogurt, baby food from a jar, and some oatmeal in his pouch and we've only had them for two days. 

I'm excited to find more things to put in the pouch.  My 9 year old that doesn't like applesauce or yogurt would love a pouch filled with pudding at school. 

The pouch has a Ziploc-type opening on one side and the other side has a gusset, so it opens wider.  They are really easy to wash and can be put in the dishwasher.

Well worth the money for a package of 3.  I got them on Amazon.

What would you put in a pouch for your kids?

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
