Not an edible recipe, but a great recipe none-the-less! The last two weeks for us have included some long snow days stuck at home. I got creative last week and made some homemade play-dough that the kids (and I) really enjoyed. There is something much more fun about making your own dough as opposed to opening a little container that may or may not be dried up, sticky gooey or just not there. So, I found a recipe online and we've already made it twice. It is awesome play-dough. And so easy to make too, that's part of the fun! And when it is freshly made it is so smooth and soft and warm. Even if you don't have little kids, seriously, make some for yourself. It is the perfect stress reliever and will make you feel like a child again, I promise :) Get the rolling pin and some cookie cutters out and have at it!


1 c flour
1/2 c salt
2 t cream of tartar
1 T vegetable oil
1 c water
food coloring

Place all of the ingredients in a medium size or large saucepan. Cook slowly on medium-high and stir constantly until the playdough thickens. Let it cool before handling.

Keep sealed in an air-tight container or ziplock bag.
