OK, so this is not really a tutorial but I wanted to share some yummy recipes that are perfect for Christmas morning. They are super easy and a lot of it can be done the night before to make it even faster to throw in the oven in the morning. You don't want to miss a moment of the fun!
3 (12 oz) packages refrigerated biscuit dough 1 cup white sugar 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon ½ cup margarine 1 cup packed brown sugar ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional) ½ cup raisins (optional) Preheat oven to 350. Grease one 9 or 10 inch tube pan, bundt pans are perfect for this recipe. A spring ring pan wouldn’t be a good idea since the caramel could leak out of the pan. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a plastic bag. Cut biscuits into quarters. Shake 6-8 biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the prepared pan. Continue until all biscuits are coated and placed in pan. If using nuts and raisins arrange them in and among the biscuit pieces as you go along. In a small saucepan melt the margarine with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the biscuits. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Do not cut, the bread just pulls apart.
8 frozen hash brown patties 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese 1 pound cubed fully cooked ham 7 eggs 1 cup milk ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground mustard Place hash brown patties in a single layer in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese and ham. In a bowl beat eggs, milk, salt and mustard. Pour over ham. Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Uncover, bake 15 minutes longer or until edges are golden brown and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
We're counting down the days to Christmas around here, and my little one is thoroughly enjoying the fun Christmas decorations (that are finally up!).
I'm getting ready to close the shop so I can get caught up on all the holiday orders and get them shipped so they'll arrive in time for Christmas. If you order today they still have an excellent chance of arriving in time, so hurry quick! I'll close in the next day or two.
And thanks so much to everyone who has already ordered, we really appreciate it!
I don't know if it's cold where you all live, but it has been cold here! OK, it's much warmer this week, but it has been really cold. So I was browsing the internet for ideas on how to keep my baby warm in his car seat. I found a really great idea!
This would really work best for a smaller baby, my little guy's legs are already hanging over the edge of his car seat and the blanket just didn't really cover him.
I found two great tutorial for this: Visit Made By Marzipan (this one has a great little video that's extremely helpful) or She Tries to Learn (I like the shape of this one better) for the tutorials.
Every year the women in my extended family get together before Christmas. We bring lots of yummy food and ornaments to share. We try to bring a handmade ornament though I admit I've had to bring store-bought ornaments in the past.
I'm always looking for new ideas on an ornament that's easy to put together because our group is getting pretty big.
So I absolutely loved these Angel Ornaments that I found on Gracious Rain!
Welcome to everyone here from the Crap I've Made blog! And if you've never visited this blog you should really check it out! Char is just amazing!
You may have noticed that the shop is back open. We're back from vacation and we had a wonderful time! My in-laws got to meet the baby for the first time and they loved every minute of it!
We visited the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter and my kids absolutely loved it (and we did too!). We went to the beach several times and just had a great time.
I've added a few holiday listings to the shop. These ornaments are a fun Christmas gift:
And we have some holiday necklaces as well:
And just a reminder-- it will be much harder for me to keep up with holiday orders this year. Last year I was able to work all day while the kids were at school, but it has gotten trickier with a baby at home again. So try to place your holiday orders as early as possible, before December if you can. That way you will be sure to get your things in time for Christmas.
My daughter loves making new art pieces. And she loves displaying them in her room all over her walls. But I have a problem with the way she displays them-- she likes taping them to her walls and they are a huge pain to remove. Not to mention how cluttered her room can look with so many things on her walls.
My sweet little guy turned 6 months old this week! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed, my kids are just growing like weeds.
We'll be visiting with family (they've never met the baby!) and my shop will be closed for a couple of weeks, so if there's something that you need be sure to order before Sunday.
And just a head's up-- it will be much harder for me to keep up with holiday orders this year. Last year I was able to work all day while the kids were at school, but it has gotten trickier with a baby at home again. So try to place your holiday orders as early as possible, before December if you can. That way you will be sure to get your things in time for Christmas.
I adore fall, but it also makes me realize that winter is just around the corner. So when I saw the tutorial from Create and Delegate for this gorgeous shrug I knew I wanted to try it soon. You can find it here.
