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.
Happy November Yall!!!! I think the best fall comfort food is pie. What is better than a thick slice of warm, fresh Apple pie on a cold fall evening? The only other thing that is better is the Thanksgiving day Pumpkin Pie swirled high with a mountain of whipped cream. Or maybe a slice of … Continue reading Fall Pies: Pie Crust
Before Baby C was born I spent a lot of time in my sewing room preparing. I am so glad I did. Many of the things I made have worked out very well. The reusable nursing pads have worked wonderfully. The only problem is they do leak a little bit. There is nothing to stop … Continue reading Follow up to Preparation for My Bundle of Joy
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

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. One of my ultrasounds during my second trimester showed baby C as breach. I was hoping that she had turned and that I could push her on out but … Continue reading God Sighting: The Birth of Baby C
Jesus was Mary's first child. Mary was fairly young according to historians and Joseph was probably quite a bit older than her. 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
