Tiny Tots Tuesdays: Educate Your Newborn in Popular Music with Jammy Jams LullabyLooza!

lullabylooza alternative rock lullaby Tiny Tots Tuesdays: Educate Your Newborn in Popular Music with Jammy Jams LullabyLooza!

Maybe Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana is not approved for your newborn to listen to?! Jammy Jams LullabyLooza is determined to change that. They take the “dirty, crunchy sound and transform it into soothing, relaxing lullabies to help you and your little one drift off to la la land.”

We were lucky enough to preview their ’90s Alternative Goes Lullaby compilation. The instrumental only music is very soft and tranquil and the recording quality and creative interpretation is top notch. We also love their Greatest Naps collections. Easily preview each track before purchase. Each release is sold digitally for under $10, with other purchase options that include CD, album download gift card (for gifting) and special gift sets including onesies and toddler tees.

This is a great gift for a music lover with a new baby or young toddlers! With music selections from Eminem to Bon Jovi to Lady Gaga, Jammy Jams is always creating new lullabies for your favorite little ones!

Click Here to download a free Jammy Jams music sampler by joining their mailing list. (includes Roar by Katy Perry)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Mindful Mondays: Treat Your Family and Friends to an All American Sweet Treat this 4th of July!

dessert 4th of July independence day crockpot apple crisp star stripe Mindful Mondays: Treat Your Family and Friends to an All American Sweet Treat this 4th of July!

star cookie vegetable cutter strawberry Mindful Mondays: Treat Your Family and Friends to an All American Sweet Treat this 4th of July!We’ve whipped up an easy crock pot sweet treat that’s worthy of a 4th of July breakfast celebration! Spend more time on the fun garnish than cooking in the kitchen with this patriotic dish that is sure to be a crowd pleaser! Your kids will love to help you cut star strawberries, spray on Reddi-wip topping and even decorate with flags and sprinkles.

Ingredients for crock pot sweet apple oatmeal:
(makes 6 one cup servings)
3 large apples
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups plain almond milk (or skim)
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
2 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt

Match our presentation and garnish:
Dessert Bowls
Small Spoons
Toothpick Flags (usually found with cupcake wrappers)
Red/White/Blue Sprinkles
Large Strawberries
Star Mini Cutters (local craft store)
Blueberries
Reddi-wip (1 can = 6 servings)

Grease the inside of your standard size crock pot (or use a Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner). Turn crock pot on high and set timer for 2.5 hours. Cut 6 large apples into 1 inch blocks (peeled or unpeeled). Add cut apples into crock pot along with all of the ingredients listed above. Stir ingredients with a mixing spoon and cover.

While the apple oatmeal is cooking, grab your mini star cutters and large strawberries. Slice your large strawberries into 5 or 6 flat slices each. Once you have the flat slices, use the star cutters to make star shapes. Use a butter knife to remove from cutter if they stick. Place strawberry stars on a cookie sheet or pie pan and place in the freezer. Save strawberry cut-out scraps for another project or add them in the crock pot with the apple oatmeal.

When the apple oatmeal is cooked, scoop it into dessert cups and allow it to cool. When the apple oatmeal is just above room temperature, add the Reddi-wip to the top. Pull the strawberry stars out of the freezer and the blueberries from the fridge and add to the top. Continue by garnishing with patriotic sprinkles, an American flag and mini silver spoon. Enjoy right away! The sweetness of the berries really offset the savory apple oatmeal for a special 4th of July treat!

Pressed for time? Instead of using our apple oatmeal recipe, purchase a store bought apple pie and divide the pie into dessert cups. Need a lighter version? Replace our apple oatmeal with watermelon cubes for a refreshing fruit cup!
