Our all-time favorite activity during the holidays — making yummy treats with the little ones.

So we tapped Weelicious blogger (and mom-of-two!) Catherine McCord for some creative ideas.

Lucky for us, she was brimming with possibilities.

Check below for two of her top recipes for the season.


Homemade Crackers: Rather than running to your local store for a teacher gift, make a present with love and care at home. We’re loving Catherine’s whole wheat seed crackers — they’re a fun and healthy snack. Just place them in a beautiful box and they’ll delight whomever you give them to.

Pumpkin Waffles for Christmas Breakfast: We all know kids work up an appetite after their gift opening marathon, so you’ll want to prepare something special, delicious and that will fill up their bellies. Catherine’s pumpkin waffles are the perfect mid-morning meal, plus you can prep the night before so you can spend more time watching your kids enjoy their new toys.

Because of Weelicious, we’ve tried so many new foods. My kids and husband are always thrilled when we try a new recipe from Catherine. Our favorites are Dark Chocolate Cupcakes, Brown Rice Krispie (Crisp-Wee) Treats, and Roast Vegetable Pasta Sauce.

Every time I see this woman I think she looks like she is made of plastic.

How old are you jacky? I sure hope you don’t have children because you’re not exactly a prime example of a “good person”. Catherine seems like a very nice person and looks great — if you can’t see that then there’s something wrong with you.

Those are great recipes!

The pumpkin waffles are awesome. I made them for my kids yesterday and they totally dug them. I also love the idea of using waffles to make sandwiches, so I made a PB&J for my son with the leftovers this morning but it looked so good, I ate it myself! I’m a terrible parent. 😉 Thanks, weelicious!
