Foodstirs December review

Yes, it says December. My son and I just baked this yesterday. We are a little behind in life and finally got around to it. He doesn’t know any better.

So Foodstirs is a baking subscription box and if you are on the plan, they send you a book every other month. December was Gingerbread People. They include everything you need for dry ingredients. They also include the piping bag, cookie cutters and things to decorate for. I just needed to provide the egg, butter, yogurt, mixing bowls, cookie sheet.


Everything included in the box

They have easy instructions to follow which I did correctly, unlike the disaster of the October box. My son really loves helping and was excited that he got to stir, use the cookie cutters and decorate. We didn’t use a lot of the gummy bears and jelly beans on the cookies because most ended in my sons mouth instead.


They didn’t turn out pretty but my son had a lot of fun and that is all that matters.


I really recommend this box. It is great bonding and then you have something good to eat. My husband had been out-of-town and he got a cookie right when he got home, and said they are really good. That is from someone who is not a huge sweets fan.


Steak Fajita Power Bowl

Last week I made my husband a power bowl with some tex-mex spin. My husband is always looking for something the will fill him up, give him energy but still healthy.

Steak Fajita Power Bowl

Ease: 4.5/5

Husbands rating: 4/5

Changes: We used a shoulder cut for the meat. My husband didn’t like it so much the first day because he forgot to add the avocado but liked it the 2nd day because he remembered and it added a creaminess. He also recommends for heating purposes to put the rice at the bottom. If you put it on top, it will soak up some of the meats moisture and dry out the meat. 

Recipe: You can find it here.
