I originally made this one for Christmas Day.  I was looking for something with few ingredients that my kids would like and I came across this recipe for Emeril's Breakfast Casserole on the Food Network.  It was delish but I made a few tweaks for New Years to make it even more kid and family friendly. (No green onions, more sausage and … [Read more...]

Little characters that … [Read more...]

I continue to use Qwiki, which I reviewed within the first few days of getting an iPad earlier in the year.  This app and website is like a Wikipedia for your iPad.  You can query just about anything and it'll bring back beautiful pictures and an audio tour of whatever you are looking for information about.

My nephew told us about this one.  There's not much to it but it's addicting, quick fun and free!  You're a treasure hunter being chased by crazy monkeys and you have to jump, slide and turn. And the best part, it's free!  Get Temple Run on the store. … [Read more...]

Okay okay, I know I'm obsessed with posting about this both here on Mommies with Style and on Facebook but you guys do not understand the insanity that was this tree. Unfortunately the beginning of the video is a little blurry (I think I  need to learn to export these videos with a higher quality) but you have to stick through until the end and … [Read more...]
