Easy Holiday Recipes: Easiest Cheesecake Ever

The holiday season is upon us and if you are looking for a dish that not only wows them but is also quick and easy, this easy cheesecake recipe is a dessert lovers dream. I used to prepare it using the Diamond peppermint chocolate nut graham cracker pie crust.  OMGgggggggg... so good BUT the company no longer makes this variety ( insert super sad face) but any graham cracker crust will do. I typically use two packages of cream cheese in my cheesecakes but this recipe only calls for 1 package of cream cheese which means you can splurge and get the good stuff 😉 The recipe is just 4 ingredients, the graham cracker pie crust plus any special add-ins like chocolate chips, crushed peppermint candies, nuts or whatever you like.  A few minutes in the oven and tada you've got the best-est dessert ever. Let's get to it. Ingredients : 1 egg 1 tsp. vanilla 1 pkg. cream cheese (room temperature) 1/3 cup sweetener (I use Splenda, but you can use sugar) 1 graham cracker pie crust Add-ins:  C

It Doesn't Take a Genius Book Review

Summer Camps are re-opening this year and It Doesn't Take a Genius by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich is a great read to get the kiddos hyped for Summer. Emmett and his older brother Luke have always been "Batman and Robin," though they're quick to bicker about who's who. Spending the summer at a historic Black summer camp seems like a wonderful adventure for the two to share, but since Luke is there as a junior counselor, he seems to spend all of his time being everyone else's big brother, and ignoring Emmett.  As Luke seems to be moving on to new adventures, Emmett struggles in unexpected ways, especially in swim class and the "It Takes A Village" entrepreneurship class. Without his brother to turn to for support, Emmett works to build a new crew of "superfriends," who'll help him plan something spectacular for the end-of-camp awards night and celebration. Along the way, Emmett learns that no matter what, there can be many ways to defi

Bedtime for Baby: The Last Tree

Once upon a time a group of friends were seeking a place to call home. The desert was too hot, the valley was too wet and the mountain was too windy.  Then they found the forest. It was perfect. The leaves gave shelter from the sun and rain, and a gentle breeze wound through the branches.  But the friends soon wanted to build shelters.  The shelters became houses, then the houses got bigger.  All too soon they wanted to control the environment and built a huge wood wall around the community. As they cut down the trees, the forest becomes thinner, until there is just one last tree standing.  It is down to the children to find a solution. Our Thoughts:   This is a story of awareness.  Truth can hurt sometimes but author Emily Haworth-Booth shares the reality of what has happened as mankind continues to build bigger and taller.  Albeit a tad grim, the story shows what happens when the people realize the error of their ways and make changes for the betterment of all.  Author Emily Haworth

Bedtime for Babies: The Greatest Show Penguin

Disclosure:  Many thanks to our partners at MM Publicity for sharing this book for our review. The Greatest Show Penguin      Poppy the Penguin comes from a long line of circus performers. Many skills have been passed down from penguin to penguin. However, Poppy soon decides that performing in the family circus is not for her, as she prefers to feel calm and in control.  But the hardest thing is not juggling, or riding a unicycle--it's telling her mum that she doesn't want to perform any more. Her bravery is worth it when Poppy discovers a better role--organizing and coordinating the whole show. And what a show it turns out to be! This tale of overcoming shyness and lack of confidence is both a funny and sensitive parody of the record-breaking movie The Greatest Showman, and a celebration of girl power! Our Thoughts: The Littlest One LOVED this book!  It's perfect for new readers and full of vivid watercolor graphics and a message too.  Young readers will enjoy Poppy's
