(Image credit: TheBittenWord) Peppermint Crunch Cookies It’s this time of year when my Zoe and I develop an unnatural craving for all things peppermint. (White peppermint kisses have moved from a craving to an addiction that I might require rehab to remove. Sadly, there are no rehab centers for peppermint kiss addicts.) However! The humble […]

(Image credit via Flickr: Simpleinsomnia) 5 Fresh Ways To Celebrate New Year’s Eve. Erin here… I have to be honest–years of hosting New Year’s Eve events as a radio “personality” leaves me with a loathing for the Big Drunken Bar Fest. It’s depressing being the only sober one in the room and trying to give […]
(Image credit: Pexels) “I Need HOW Many Lights?” A Guide To Decorating Your Christmas Tree. I know I’m not the only frustrated Martha Stewart wanna-be who’s done the Decorating Walk Of Shame to the store at midnight, buying 16 more packages of lights for the tree because I ran out halfway through. And you can’t […]
(Image credit: Bruce Mars) Controlling Christmas Expectations: Free Printable “I Want” Tags I’ve battled expectations from my eight-year-old Zoe, (and thank you, parents of classmates who give bikes for Easter and an Xbox for getting a flu shot!) and this is the time every year we start really, really controlling what she watches. Every kid’s […]
(Image credit: Pixabay) Five New Holiday Traditions To Try. I’d forgotten the excitement the twins used to show when we’d open the boxes filled with Christmas decorations.

Making Magic Wands For Halloween. Magic wands here at Chez Collard are a crucial part of Halloween. How can you turn that one annoying trick or treater into a toad without a good spell or two? Half the fun is creating a spooky new one every year. It’s the easiest DIY you’ll do this fall. […]
Five Utah ghost towns you simply must explore. There’s no better time than autumn to fill the gas tank and head out on an impromptu road trip, armed with nothing but a case of diet Pepsi and a box of Cap’n Crunch. But where to go? With all this hot weather, it’s time to send […]
The Five Creepiest Utah Cemeteries. I grew up in the Avenues here in Salt Lake City, just a couple of blocks from the venerable city cemetery. So we played hide and seek around the tombstones, ran circles around Emo’s Grave and dared the night watchman to chase us down after hours. I didn’t get the […]
5 Fun Ideas For New Halloween Family Traditions. The importance of developing traditions together as a family has really hit me again since Zoe (our tempestuous 8-year-old) started questioning our Halloween quirks and oddities. “Why do we have a Halloween tree? Jane doesn’t have a Halloween tree.” “Adam and Peter across the street already haaaaave […]
