DIY Cozy Blanket

So I'm making my midget a simple but awesome blanket to tote around the house. She seems to love a soft and fuzzy blanket and I think this gives her what she wants. It made with 2 layers of fleece with satin border. Fleece is fairly easy to work with and you don't have to prewash it, which i love. But I just love a cozy blanket

Christmas Photos 2013

In the spirit of Xmas just wanted to share a few photos of me and the hubby and my adorable midget with Santa. Tis the season.

White Wine Herb Salmon

Well after hitting up the fish market at the commissary today came home with some very nice farm raised salmon. Between me and my hubby being busy this week, cooking has been simple chicken and veggies. I needed a change of poultry today. Most of the time I marinate my meats/fish/poultry because 1 Flavor and 2 I can just come home and cook. I'm a big fan of Weber marinade mixes and always trying to duplicate the recipe. As mom and wife when the tot and hubby are hungry, their hungry. So here's my White Wine Marinade, goo for fish or poultry. . .not so much red meat but hey you can do what you want with it.

Peanut Butter Fudge Drops

As always . . .Im waiting till the last minute to make a goodie for a squadron event. So I had to think of what I wanted to do. I know I wanted to make easy fudge and I also wanted to do peanut butter. I also knew i only had 2 hours, to make treat, get me and my midget dressed. I came across this recipe Here and thought how cool. I used dark and semi sweet chocolate instead of milk/semisweet, too sweet for me plus i love dark chocolate more than anything. PB Fudge Cups here we go. . .

Leftover Cranberry Sauce Greek Yogurt Popsicle

When I make my cranberry sauce its jellied, so its not chunky as you would call it. Doesn't mean you have to discard all that goodness. I love making homemade Popsicle with my tot and for myself all the time. So i thought I'd share this fun, simple, recipe. So whether you have leftover sauce or leftover pulp like me this is a great recipe.

Christmas Eve Gift Box Ideas

So I was browsing ideas for Christmas eve and came across the Christmas eve box. I think my toddler and hubby will love this one. One box with all the goodies needed to have a fun Xmas eve.

Operation Christmas Gift-Baby Bag & Accesories

I've decided that since I have this sewing machine that I must make at least one thing for a Xmas present. So I thought about it and I notice my midget starting to take interest in her baby dolls more. She loves taking care of them, we play all the time now. I noticed that she didn't have a diaper bag, diapers to change them, baby blanket and the list goes on and on. So I'm hoping this sewing project isn't that hard to tackle.
