I have had angel food cake so many times. My mom would make them for my dad because they had less sugar than regular cakes, or that’s what she said. My dad was diabetic and that’s what she’d make for special occasions. With 1 3/4 cups, I’m not sure that’s much less. But we all did enjoy those cakes especially served with strawberries. I vaguely remember my mom making angel food cake from scratch a time or two, but I mostly remember her using a mix. I have made quite a few from mixes as well. After my grandmother
I love making my own bias tape. I’ve found that it saves me money, since store-bought bias tape is pretty expensive. But even more than the money saving is the fact that I can make bias tape that exactly matches my project, instead of choosing from the scant plain bias tapes offered. I can make fun bias tape that stands out on a plain project. Homemade bias tape is great, and it’s really pretty easy. A bias tape maker will make it faster, so if you’re planning on making a lot of bias tape, then it’s probably worth buying one,
Are you as bummed about Psych ending as I am??? Normally, I get bored with shows after a couple seasons but not so with Psych. I’ve loved it from the first episode and it continues to make me laugh. I mean seriously that Food Truck episode was one of the funniest I’ve seen. So what to do? I guess we could sob like Gus, kind of thought about it for a minute. But that didn’t seem like the best plan. If you’ve watched basically any episode of Psych, you have seen Gus and Shawn snacking, snacking, snacking, and snacking some

For Lucy, spring has mostly sprung. For Jamie and I, we still have some time before we really get spring even though I have flowers coming up in the front flower bed. For all of us in the US this has been a weird winter, a really weird winter. So I’m not sure what to expect as far as our last freeze date. But I’m going to be safe and go with our average. But since I am preparing for a large garden, I need to get started now. First, I need a plan. I made a list of the
I love cookies. Love, love them. But honestly, they’re just not good for you. So I make these Breakfast Cookies, which are still not super good for you, but at least they’re healthier than regular chocolate chip cookies, plus they’re far more filling, so you don’t have to eat as many (not that I have a problem with eating too many or something….). Breakfast Cookies are packed full of oats, coconut, dried cranberries, and cinnamon, for a delicious, flavorful cookie! Dan hates having anything in his oatmeal cookies. That’s something he made very clear the one and only time in
I love smoothies and I used to make them quite often. Until my blender went out. I’ve been dragging my feet about replacing my blender, mostly because smoothies was all I ever used it for and I wasn’t sure I really wanted to shell out the money for a new one. Then I finally remembered that I could be making smoothies in the Magic Bullet that my mom gave me. I normally only use my magic bullet for mixing up batter for my sweet milk pancakes. But it works perfectly for smoothies too. Yay!! I knew I had blueberries in
I’m not much into the “luck” aspect of St. Patrick’s Day, which makes it hard, as a blogger, to think of something to share for St. Patrick’s Day. Last year I shared a toilet paper roll craft and a short story of who St. Patrick was. This year I finally decided to go with a theme of shamrocks for teaching the kids about St. Patrick’s day, but focusing on the trinity. When St. Patrick went to Ireland as a missionary, it is said that he used shamrocks to teach the people about God and the Trinity. So the kids and
If you have spent much time on Pinterest you have seen some pretty spectacular children’s parties. Every time I see one of those, I think that would be such a cool party if I was way more talented than I am and willing to shell out a bunch of money on a kids party! But luckily there is much more DIY friendly kids parties ideas out there too! Some even I can do and do easily! There is some great cake ideas, party games, and party decor that any parent or grandparent could do. Plus these won’t break the bank!!
