Dairy Queen Needs To Worry!!

We’ve flipped the calendar to June now, but Mother Nature is still not co-operating!  It’s cool and windy and grey and wet and disappointing! But here at Sweet Times Two, we’re just going to pretend it’s warm and proceed with some summertime recipes.  Today, I’m going to share with you two variations on a simple […]

Lunchlady Peanut Butter Bars

Recipes for these bars are all over the internet and they don’t vary much from one recipe to another.  I have to admit that I was first attracted to the recipe because “Lunchlady” was in the title! What is a lunchlady anyway?  We didn’t have lunchladies when I went to school nor when I was […]

More from the children’s baking group

This month, our group of volunteers met again with our budding bakers to create some tasty treats.  These kids have really improved over the course of our sessions and we have the pictures to prove it! This yummy morsel is a re-make of the traditional pineapple upside down cake.  By turning it into a cupcake, […]

A Page From the Past

Is it spring where you live?  It sure looks like spring here!  Bazinga…don’t you love that word…Mother Nature fools us again!  We had snow on Sunday and we’re back to winter coats and tuques and mittens!  The only good thing about this weather is that I can squeeze in one more comfort cookie before all […]

A Gift Mom Will Actually Use

This is the best craft I’ve come across in a long time!  Thank you, Pinterest! I did it with two fourteen year-old girls, but I’m sure it would be suitable for crafters of almost any age (with parental support for the young ones).  It looks like tie-dyeing but without the mess!  Where was this idea […]

Momofuku Cookies

What a sloppy looking mess on that cookie sheet!!  I’m not ashamed to post this, though, because the other photos of this cookie that I found on the internet are just as bad!!  Why then would I even bother to try these cookies out?  Momofuku is quite the trendy restaurant in NYC and now here […]

Baking Bedlam!

Baking bedlam…14 children, 7 adults, one kitchen!  Yet, we managed to produce three pans of yummy bars to share.  The hands-down winner was Oreo brownies chosen by our volunteer, Victoria.  Victoria has the uncanny ability to come up with kid-friendly treats to bake month after month.  I was surprised when she told me that she wasn’t […]

Bragging rights

This is just a short post to brag about the beautiful wreath made by one of the girls that I mentor.  We purchased the material at a dollar store, and I simply supervised the work.  She is so creative and talented.  I’m lucky to work with her.

An “Egg”cellent idea!

Today’s post is a first for Sweet Times Two: a craft.  I used to be an avid crafter and then I moved away from it for a bit.  Our daughter’s wedding last summer brought me back to my crafting roots and I’ve been back at it ever since.  This craft is very simple, but the […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

The calendar says that spring is here and that Easter is just around the corner.  It’s too bad Mother Nature isn’t co-operating.  Can you believe the snow again this morning?  Snow or no snow, Easter IS coming.  I decided to make an Easter confection with one of the young ladies with whom I volunteer.  We had […]
