Thanksgiving Teepee Cupcakes by Christie

Halloween over…on to Thanksgiving! Wouldn’t these teepee cupcakes be adorable to have at Thanksgiving for the kiddos?? Plus they can help make them too and have unique and tasty way to teach about the history of the Pilgrims and Indians for your Thanksgiving party. I love creative people. I love it even better when creative people are willing to share their “how tos” for the rest of us to try like Christie from Sties thoughts do.  The only thing more fun than making them with your kids is eating them. Happy Thanksgiving!

I think the reason that I eat  so many different dips at this time of year is because there are so many parties and special occasions to make them. And we all have a spinach artichoke dip in our recipe box but do you have a Kale and Artichoke dip recipe??? Probably not. Both kale and spinach are superfoods packed with vitamins and nutrients, but who comes out as a winner? Continue reading
