Book Review-Night Night, Valentine

31 Jan

Night Night, Valentine is a children’s book written by Amy Parker.

This little book geared towards toddlers, showcases cute panda characters in love-themed scenes, and reminds children of the different ways they can experience love in their lives.

This book would be a good addition to any night-time routine, as it helps wind kids down, while reminding them of how loved they are.

I would like to thank Thomas Nelson for providing me with a free digital copy of this book in exchange for my review. Thank you!

Book Review-The Vanishing at Loxby Manor

30 Jan

The Vanishing at Loxby Manor is a historical romance novel written by Abigail Wilson.

Summary: Charity Halliwell has just returned from her long trip abroad, and is looking forward to spending time with her dear friends at Loxby Manor.

But the very night of her arrival, one of her friends goes missing. What could have possibly happened to her? And why does it seem that all of the sudden everyone has a secret?

Who knows more than they are telling, and can Charity discover the truth before it’s too late?

My Thoughts: I have not been disappointed by an Abigail Wilson book yet, and this one is no exception. It was excellent, and I finished it in one sitting.

It is well-written, the characters are fascinating, and there is a really good mystery with lots of twists and turns that left me guessing until the very end.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, and highly recommend it!

Kids’ Craft Friday-Thank You Cards

29 Jan

This month I have been sharing many of the kids’ Christmas projects.

Today I am sharing their thank you cards!

They had a lot of fun making these, and I can see why.

These turned out great! I especially like the creativity of having a bite out of a cookie as part of the shape of a card. 🙂

Pinterest Thursday-Gluten-Free Hawaiian Bread

28 Jan

I found a new bread recipe to try-dairy-free gluten-free Hawaiian bread. I was especially curious to try this as I have been making a regular Hawaiian bread recipe now for several months.

Well, I tried it, and The Boy really liked it. I have to admit, it is much better than the previous gluten-free bread I had been making.

This recipe is designed for baking in the oven, so I will have to try to figure out how to adapt it for my bread machine. I don’t really mind making it in the oven though either-it is pretty simple to make.

I do like that there is not any white sugar in this recipe, and that Psyllium husk powder is included for extra fiber.

For now, I will definitely be making this bread going forward-at least until I find a recipe I like even better!
