This muffin recipe was inspired by the Pennsylvanian Dutch Shoofly Pie. It has a very heavy molasses flavor. It is like eating the pie without the crust.
I think my sewing machine is cooling down now. I have kept my pedal to the metal. I have been sewing like mad this week. In addition to making the purse for this tutorial, I have made two jean skirts from pants, a maxi skirt, and a moby wrap for my husband. I think this … Continue reading September Sewing Saturdays: Jean Purse
Just gonna say this week has been a little crazy. My schedule was thrown off Monday and Tuesday by Hurricane Irma. We did not bear the brunt of it but we got enough to knock out power and down a few trees. My husband, Baby C, and I stayed with my parents. We have a … Continue reading September Sewing Saturdays: Luggage Tags
I was out shopping looking for a new flag and could not find one I was happy with. Also on my tiny budget, I could not justify buying one. I returned home and stared rooting through my fabric stash and looking over Pinterest. How hard could making a flag be? Turns out it is easy peasy lemon squeezy.
I love a comfy jean skirt but there seems to be a shortage of places that sell them. I have seen some that button down the front and are made for ummm...well... mature women with elastic bands. Not exactly what I want to wear. So I have taken matters into my own hands. I have been turning jeans into skirts for several years now.
Early in the morning on August 11th my precious little C entered the world. My delivery was not what I wanted but it was not unexpected.

Not only was there the miraculous circumstance surrounding Jesus's conception, which probably unnerved Mary and Joseph, but there was also must have been the first time parents nervousness.
My baby girl is due today. I have been doing so many things to prep for her arrival.
Some how I don't think the term "Stay at Home Mum" is quite right. In the words of the great Dezi Arnaz, " Let me splain." July 4th was my last day at my job. I thought to myself, " I have a month to get ready for my little baby! I can get her … Continue reading Stay at Home Mummy — Busier than A Job
he other day I decided to push through my tiredness to make a dish that I was craving so desperately. They are called Chicken Bundles. I think they are kinda like a calzone or stromboli. My husband thinks they are like Hot Pockets. Whatever they are like they are really really good. They have a creamy, chickeny (I know not a word!) center and a rich sweet Crescent roll outside.
It seems like since March my husband and I have not caught a break. They say when it rains it pours. Well, for us, right now it is pouring.
