Pinterest Thursday-Banana Doughnuts

27 Jun

As I mentioned last week, I have started making some of the recipes from this book:

Cooking for Isaiah (eBook)

Another recipe I tried was banana doughnuts with banana frosting:

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Banana Doughnuts with Banana Frosting - Silvana's Kitchen

I had high hopes for this one, as The Boy loves his doughnuts. He did like these, but no one else really did-including me. I didn’t care for the flavor very much at all.
There are two more types to try in the book, so I will try again another time and see if I can find one everyone likes.

A Single Paper Challenge Pt. 6

25 Jun

Today I am sharing the final part of my single paper challenge-where I have been trying to see how many projects I can make with a single sheet of paper.
For this challenge, I used this piece of paper from the Paige Evans Horizon collection:

As well as this paper, also from the Horizon collection:

Today, I have the final two cards I made with these papers:

Supplies: Patterned Papers: Paige Evans; Glitter Paper and Thickers: American Crafts; Stamp: Studio Calico
As you can see, I used even the smallest pieces of these papers. There was literally nothing left but two tiny squares I tossed.
I really like how that second card turned out too. I cut up a block of leftover paper into strips and spread them under a glitter heart that I popped up. It turned out really pretty!
These papers got used up, and the grand total was nine cards and two layouts.
I had a lot of fun with this challenge, and have already started this challenge again with a new piece of paper, which I will be sharing over the next couple of weeks.
Have a great day, and I hope you had fun following along with my single paper challenge!

Card Monday-A Single Paper Challenge Pt. 5

24 Jun

Today I am sharing part five of my single paper challenge-trying to see how many projects I can make with a single sheet of paper.
For this challenge, I am using this piece of paper from the Paige Evans Horizon collection:

And because I have managed to use all but a few scraps, I have added this paper as well:

Today, I have three cards utilizing these papers:

Supplies: Patterned Papers: Paige Evans; Glitter Paper: American Crafts; Stamps: Studio Calico, Hero Arts; Stickers: Tim Holtz
For these cards, I decided to make petals and turn them into flowers. It allowed me to use up a lot of my scraps, and still make more cards.
Tomorrow, I will be sharing the final two cards I was able to make with these papers, so stay tuned!

The Little Guy is always building and creating around here, and I thought it would be fun to show some of his more recent projects.

Pretty fun projects, right? He is so creative. 🙂

Pinterest Thursday-Pizza Crust

20 Jun

As I mentioned last week, I have started making some of the recipes from this book:

I used one of the batches of her Bread and Pizza mix to make this pizza crust:

Perfect Pizza Crust - Silvana's Kitchen

pin and picture found here
The pizza crusts turned out beautifully! They weren’t hard to make at all, and tasted great.
I also tried her pepperoni pizza recipe from the book (pg. 123), but we all agreed that the tomato puree she used for the sauce was too sweet.
Next time I will try regular pizza sauce, and I think we will all like it a lot better. I will definitely make the crusts, and the pizza, again in the future!
