Brunch with Babs is her official handle on TikTok, and this socially savy media mama has over 2 million followers, and 22.7 million likes overall.  But hold on, her latest video about loading dishwashers is causing quite a stir! So far, this video has 4.4 million views. The mother of 4, grandmother of 8 knows things! How can I have lived my whole life not knowing I could drop the top? What? I’m a grown ass woman.. Clearly still navigating life.

Thanks Babs. And keep ’em coming…

Babs has plenty of grandma greats to share. So, I’m passing along a few of my favorites. Check them out!

  • Babs Briefs Us On Cleaning Out The Washing Machine Filter

    Have you ever done this? I’m happy to say, I actually do this on a regular basis but only because I actually read the manual after we purchased our machine. Whew, I’m not completely clueless.


    Have you ever cleaned your washing machine filter? If you haven’t you may want to! You should be cleaning your filter at least 4 times per year

  • Babs Also Bakes!

    Sure, this grandma is full of helpful hints about household items, but she also shares recipes. I wonder if she is interested in adopting a grown woman. Hmmm. And yum to this breakfast cookie recipe!


    Morning Glory Cookies ☀️ recipe below ☀️ What are my two favorite things? Breakfast and cookies! So I am so excited to share one of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts. The perfect wake-me-up breakfast cookie. A quick breakfast that even my grandkids LOVE! It is a hardy meal that you can hold in the palm of your hand. Perfect for quick breakfast, after-school snack, or anytime. But…be careful, they go fast! ☀️Morning Glory Cookie Recipe ☀️(King Arthur Baking Company) 🍪Ingredients: 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon 3/4 tsp ginger 1/2 cup coconut oil 4 tsp unsalted butter, softened 2/3 cup light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, packed 1/3 cup granulated sugar 2 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 cup oats 1 1/2 cups carrots, peeled and grated 1/2 cup apple, peeled, cored, and grated 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 1/2 cup raisins 🍪Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two baking sheets. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger. Set aside. In a separate large mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil, butter, and sugars until pale and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until smooth and scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl after each one; then beat in the vanilla. Stir the dry ingredients (coconut, carrots, apples, walnuts, and raisins) into flour mixture until evenly incorporated. Using a 2" ice cream scoop, form dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2" apart. Bake the cookies for 13 to 15 minutes, until they're just set at the center. Remove the cookies from the oven and transfer them to a rack to cool. Store baked cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Store in the freezer, wrapped airtight, for up to 1 month.

    I kept listening to her, thinking…I know this voice. And then it hit me. She sounds just like Carol Wendelson from the TV show, Great News. See for yourself!
