Time for a throwback marathon.

A List Of Disney Channel Original Movies Kids These Days Need To See

I am sure all 90's kids can agree with me when I say Disney Channel original movies these days are not even close to as amazing as they once were when we were younger. Sure, Disney brings back "Halloweentown" and all of its sequels every October and they show movies like "High School Musical" (and it's sequels) again every once in a blue moon, but it is about time that they brought back more of the originals. Kids these days have no idea what they are missing. So, Disney, I think it's time for a throwback showing off all the greats. If you need help deciding on which movies to use I have made a list of the best below.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Like I said, it's a big hassle.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
