Rudy’s Recipe: Roasted Starbursts

So we talked on Facebook about how my daughter and I roasted starbursts last week. Had a few people ask how we did it … so I thought we’d throw that up on the blog for you.

Roasted Starbursts

You Need:

  • Roasting skewers (long ones are best so you’re not too close)
  • Bag of starbursts (you could get just the individual sleeve of them, but we needed more) 🙂

Make ‘Em:

Unwrap starburst. Push onto skewer until it goes through the other side. It gets pretty bubbly and slides around so make sure it’s pushed through there good.

Hold over the fire for about ten seconds or so. I lost count. We roasted ours until they started to bubble and changed into a deeper color. Remove from fire and let cool to the touch. They’re ooey, gooey and crunchy. Which is an interesting combination. Outside gets crunchy and inside is gooey.

What’s your favorite flavor? Ours was pink and red. Yum!







Panning for Gold!

Trying out the new gem mining equipment!







Thar’s gold in them thar hills!

New gem mining equipment has arrived. I’m so excited; I feel just like an old prospector. Where’s my hat and pick ax? Oh, and my pan?!

We think you’re going to love the new additions!







Rudy’s Recipe: Snow Ice Cream

We’ve had our share of the white stuff lately … though not as much as other areas see on a regular basis. One thing I remember from snow days at home is my mom making snow ice cream. Thought I’d share that recipe!

Snow Ice Cream

You Need:

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • Roughly 8 cups clean snow (or shaved ice)
  • Sprinkles, optional

Make It:

Whisk sugar, salt, vanilla, and milk in a large mixing bowl until combined. Add in your snow. You need around 8 cups, more or less depending on the consistency of the snow.

Once it’s stirred in you want an ice cream type consistency. So add until you achieve that. Should be fluffy and easy to scoop. Not runny!

It melts fairly quick so serve it up! Add sprinkles if you like.

*Eat snow at your own risk. If you’re worried, use shaved ice. And for goodness sake avoid yellow snow! 🙂







Camping Books for Kiddos

My little girl, who just turned two this month, loves to read. She also loves to come with Mommy when I work during Halloween Weekends. I think she really just loves the treats and golf car.

I’ve been searching for fun camping books we can  read to get ready for the season. Wanted to share a few that I came across … they’re in no particular order. I’ll let you know later if they’re “Addison Approved” or not. 🙂

Camping Spree

  1. A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee by Chris Van Dusen. Mr. Magee and his trusty dog, Dee, are enjoying a peaceful camping trip when all of a sudden they find themselves plunging down a mountain and teetering on the edge of a huge waterfall! How will they find their way out of this slippery situation?
  2. OLIVIA Goes Camping by Alex Harvey. Olivia is super excited to have her best friend come along on her family camping trip. However Francine is not a huge fan of the Great Outdoors and is less than excited about the mud, the bugs, and the idea of sleeping in a tent. It’s up to Olivia to help Francine get in touch with her inner nature lover in this funny story that’s based on an episode.
  3. Just Camping Out by Mercer Mayer. Love the “Little Critter” books. Little Critter’s little sister goes on a daredevil night of camping in their backyard-and even spends the night in the tent all by herself.
  4. S Is for S’mores: A Camping Alphabet by Helen Foster James. Next to baseball and fireworks on the Fourth of July, nothing else seems as American as the family camping trip. From what to pack, where to go, and what to do when you get there.
  5. Curious George Goes Camping by Margret & H.A. Rey. George tries to be helpful, but he of course just ends up upsetting a nearby camper. As he’s hiding in the woods, he meets a forest creature who catapults the mischievous monkey into a chain of even more outrageous events!
  6. Toasting Marshmallows: Camping Poems by Kristine O’Connell George. Everything that happens when you go camping can be an adventure, from getting dressed inside your sleeping bag on a chilly morning to meeting a moose to sharing secrets in a tent at night.

If you share any of these with your kids let me know what you, and they, think!
