Blueberry Mini Donuts

About a month ago my husband and I picked up one of those little lava cake/bundt maker machines on mega clearance. It sat on the counter for over a month until we opened it up to try our hand at making some orange creamsicle donuts. They turned out delicious (we ate them all so there were none for pictures), someday …

It’s all about the mermaids over here these days in JENerally Informed land, and it’s kind of fun. I know just how fast that time of magic and wonder passes.

DIY Flower-Shaped Pressed Bath Bombs

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen

It’s all the rage these days to make your own bath bombs, but when my now 9-year-old daughter said she wanted to make them for her most recent birthday party that was spa-themed, I was a little hesitant. I have heard that the round shape molds can be pretty tricky. So in order to meet her request, but not lose …

It’s time for another episode of Semi-homemade with Jen. That’s the name of my cooking show btw…. well if I had one! I do a lot of from-scratch recipes, but I am firmly in the camp of, “you do not have to do that for EVERY recipe.” If you can bring the fun and good into a recipe AND cut …
