My baby girl turned FIVE a couple weeks ago. I feel like if I blink she’ll be off to college tomorrow…*sob*. Ahem, carrying on! She requested a dolly party, then changed it to a princess party, then said a dolly princess party would be great, haha! So this is our interpretation of that!

This is one of my favorite summertime drinks, and it tastes very similar to a drink I’ve had at Starbucks!
Start with some herbal tea like this (or any mango blend you can find!), some lemons, honey and some hot water.
Now, a warning – making tea or lemonade is a highly individual thing, so these are just guidelines…feel free to tweak it as you go! More honey, or more lemon, it’s all up to you!
I’ve seen lots of round-ups on other blogs, and thought my readers might enjoy a fun little one. I’ve got babies on the brain since two of my friends are expecting (one is due really soon….
and may even have that babe in the next day or so she had that baby!) and I’ve been planning to make some cute clothes for them once Project Run & Play is over. Here are a few of my favorite (and mostly free!) patterns:
Wondering why you haven’t seen any sewing posts lately? Don’t worry….I have been up to my eyeballs in sewing, but I can’t share it with you until tomorrow. Check back for my first week of Project Run & Play!
This is the perfect wintertime meal! Oh, I know it’s spring, but it is still a deep freeze up here! Get a pot of this easy delicious soup simmering and then make some of the fluffiest biscuits ever, and you’ve got a winner.

Oh, this is a good one. And oldie and a goodie. Probably more of a treat than a pancake/breakfast. You can serve this pancake puff with maple syrup, or get fancy and top it with some fruit!
Ok, I love chocolate chip cookies. But you know? If I make a whole batch I eat TOO MANY. So this recipe is perfect. Of course, I usually double it, but nevermind that. Just make as written to avoid guilt.
I will admit, these aren’t the best chocolate chip cookies, but I’m going to chalk that up to having to measure out your egg in tablespoons….They do hit the spot though!
Some exciting news! I’ve been picked as one of six designers to compete in Season 9 of Project Run & Play!!
It starts the end of March, and you can be sure I’ll be keeping a running update here on how things are progressing….look out for some fantastic crock-pot recipes, and tips on how to do less laundry and cleaning. Oh wait. Ha.
Mmm. Nothing better than having pancakes on a lazy Saturday morning.
Sometimes we like to have breakfast for supper even, and pancakes (griddle cakes, flapjacks…) are always the star of the show. Unless there’s bacon. Moving on…
This is a recipe I found from the Food Network, and it works every time (with my modifications anyways!)! Be sure to use fresh baking powder, though…that’s the cause of many a flat pancake!
