My kiddos (especially my 4-year old) LOVE helping out in the kitchen.

This week my Sister-in-law got married. Our whole family headed to my inlaw’s cabin on Thursday to help set up. Madison and I decided to bring a special treat for the rest of the ‘set up’ crew:  Chocolate Strawberries.

We of course found our recipe on Pinterest (since that’s where I find all of my “Pinspirations”).



2 pounds strawberries

1 brick chocolate almond bark

1 brick white almond bark



In a microwave-safe bowl, or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, cook chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth. Holding berries by the stem, dip each one in molten chocolate, about three-quarters of the way to the stem. Place, stem side down, on wire rack and chill in refrigerator until hardened.


Drizzle white almond bark on your masterpieces:



Here’s a shout out to my ‘Pinspiration’.

For nearly 15 years Jennifer spent her time clawing her way up the chain as a television producer and newsroom manager. She's helped create and produce newscasts and talkshows. Just as she was realizing some of her professional goals, she decided to give it all up for a family. Although Jennifer has lived in Miami and L.A., she has always called Nebraska home. She always knew she wanted to raise her children in the Midwest. Jennifer is now trying to find her way in a new world. She may be frenzied and frazzled sometimes, but she would not give up being a mom to her almost four year old and her almost two year old for anything.
