One has to start the day off right with breakfast. To get you into Star Wars mode, Carrie (from Carrie Elle) shows us how to make Chewie out of bacon and hashbrowns, and TIE-Fighters out of eggs! For the full how-to, check it out here!


Lunch (or Dinner)

If you’re craving pizza for lunch, then go no further. Kim Vealey (from Soliloquy of Food and Such) shows us how to make both a Yoda pizza and a Darth Vader pizza respectively. Check out the recipe and how-to here!


Afternoon Tea (or Fancy After School Snacks!)
