It’s getting a lil’ hairy :-)

Standard

Yes I know that was a little on the corny side, but that’s just how I roll….I have a very corny sense of humor 🙂

Again, Pinterest has so many cute ideas…..I feel like I have so much on my ‘to do’ list.  From recipes to crafts!!!  Now hair?  There is also a lot of make-up tricks I want to try, I mean come on…..I know I can get my eyes to look like those girls, right?!?!?

I did this cute little hair style on my daughter this weekend, we attended a birthday party – it turned out really cute!!

 

Then again on Sunday for church, she wanted me to do it…this time I added braides to it!!  I really think it turned out cute!!

 

Very easy…very simple!

French toast – muffin?

Standard

Oh yes I really do like…..LOVE both 🙂  I have actually made this before.  My son wanted some cinnamon rolls for breakfast – I didn’t have any, and I really didn’t want to make some from scratch (I actually have tried to do that yet, but Pioneer Woman has a fab one I want to try!). 

So I asked him how he would like it if I made some “french toast muffins” ??  I always add cinnamon – it’s one of his favorites!  So that is what I made.

I actaully made this not in my traditional muffin pan.  I also made a cinnamon roll ‘glaze’ to go over the top instead of syrup.  (Powder Sugar + Milk).  These were easy to make – and fun for kids.  You could easily pick these up and dip them in syrup if you wanted!

Poor eggs whites in a mixing bowl (or several eggs)

1 table spoon of vanilla

dash of milk

Cinnamon (to taste)

mix

Bread – cut into pieces (depending on how much you are making – I used about 10 slices)

Mix eggs, vanilla, milk and cinnamon (with a fork).  Put in your bread pieces, make sure your bread is fully covered.  Put your pieces into your muffin tin – press down (not real tight).  Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top – sugar if you want…I did not do this. 

Bake at 350

Top with glaze or syrup

To make the glaze I put powder sugar into my blender and added milk – add to the consistancy that you wish – I like mine to be a little on the thick side.

Enjoy!!

Butterfinger Pie

Standard

Well this one was a yummy easy one to make – I saw it on Friday…and made it on Friday.  I just happened to have just about everything that I needed.

Directions:

  1. 1Mix first three ingredients together.
  2. 2Put it in pie crust.
  3. 3Chill.

THIS….was absolutely delish – I will be making this again!

Cookie Dough Truffles

Standard

I make these yummy things EVERY year – I actually first saw them on “how sweet it is”  Tested it out….delish!!!

After I ‘mix’ up the batter…I let it set in the freezer for a while – it is VERY sticky!!!  After I roll them into balls…again I set them in the freezer to ‘set’ again.  This makes it a little easier.  VERY VERY GOOD!  I did Milk Chocolate, and White Chocolate…I used the same melting bowl – therefore…the white chocolate looked a little brownish 😉

1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

14 oz can sweetened, condensed milk

3/4 cup milk chocolate chips

To coat: 1 1/2 lbs chocolate disks or chocolate chips

In a large bowl cream butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add vanilla. Gradually beat in flour and add milk. Add chocolate morsels, mixing well. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place on waxed paper; chill 2 hours.

Since the dough is sticky, roll your fingers into flour. This will make it easier to roll.

Melt chocolate chips or disks in a double boiler. Using 2 forks, dip cookie balls into candy coating to cover. Place on waxed paper and chill to set. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour

 

White Chocolate dipped

Standard

Anything dipped in chocolate is good?  Most…yes 🙂  I have to say I absolutely LOVE Nutterbutters…..and oreos hold thier own.  Dipped in White chocolate…just sends them over the top in my opinion.

 

I of course added christmas sprinkles…….I intend on making these again – but dressing them up as Santa – I didn’t really make them fancy – they were just for us at home, still cute.

Hassleback….

Standard

Potatoes are one of my favorite foods.  I’ve seen this recipe floating around for a while – I think I first saw it on The Pioneer Woman’s blog.  It looked delish then…it still looks delish.  I’ve seen different variations of it – from garlic, to putting butter/cheese between the slices.  I just used the butter/olive oil method.  Next…I do believe I’m adding slices of cheese and butter between…..

fresh out of the oven…..

I did top this off with cheese – it would have been great with a blob of sour cream mmmmmm!  These are very yummy – I will be making them again!! 

Christmas Vase Fillers

Standard

I’ve actually done this the past few years, but stumbled upon it on Pinterest….along with some other really cute ideas.  I have used pinecombs, and Christmas ornaments…both very pretty.  Here is a Center piece that I made for my dining room table….which I have now cleared off for my village that covers the entire table.  I have now moved this vase to my round coffee table.

Such cute ideas…..
