Thanksgiving Craft: Making Turkeys

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

My awesome sister, Jessica, gave me this great idea. The kids loved designing their own “turkeys” with apples, marshmallows, froot loops, gumdrops, raisins, and candy corns. It’s so fun to see how they all turn out so different:

The Illustration Friday prompt for this week is sneaky. These mustaches are very sneaky. They went from black to pink!

Bread Cornucopias

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

I found this awesome idea today from The Idea Room and I was so excited to try it out with my kids. Instead of making normal size breads, we made mini-cornucopia loaves so the kids could participate.

After they came out of the oven, we stuffed them with butter, honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, etc.  It was so much fun!

Rosette Headbands

I tried making my own rosette headbands after seeing some in a store that I liked. They turned out really cute! (At least I think so. :))

Homemade Applesauce Dessert

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Yesterday I made homemade applesauce from Ina Garten’s (aka “The Barefoot Contessa”) recipe. It was very easy to make. As it baked, it filled up the house with a delicious aroma. I love that this recipe combines sour and sweet apples making for just the right balance of flavors. I whipped it in the blender right after it was done baking to make it extra smooth. I served it hot with whipped cream, and it just melted right in. Delicious! So comforting and cozy as it was cold outside. We had it again today for an afternoon snack, and it was so good cold, too. Such a sweet and savory treat. Autumn in every bite! Recipe here.
