Weekend Sweets: Healthy Graham Crackers

I LOVE graham crackers and so does Ada, but they’re not great for you, so I decided to try to find a healthier alternative. These are SO good. They’re a little bit spicy, perfect for the fall. I got this great recipe here and changed it just a smidge by adding ground cloves. Ingredients: 1 C wheat flour1 1/2 C flour1/2 C dark brown sugar1/2 t salt1 t cinnamon1/8 t ground cloves1 t baking soda1/2 C butter (chilled and cubed)1/4 C...

Fat Quarter Friday: Circle Zipper Pouch – Binky Pouch

This week I wanted to make something small and fun. I used this tutorial to make this adorable zipper pouch for Ada’s binks.

You could use it for all sorts of little things like lip gloss or change. I’ve been thinking of lots of cute things I could do with this basic idea and...

If you don’t like flax seed, substitute...

Ingredients: White cake mixwhatever the cake...

Fat Quarter Friday: Quilted Wall Hanging for Photos

This week I made a cute little quilted wall hanging for pictures. I was inspired by a project from Baby Times where she made a photo front that you staple to a canvas. It was cute, but I didn’t have a large square canvas, so I made up my own project. I think it turned out really sweet! Materials:  4 fat quarters (2 for the front squares, 1 for the backing, and 1 for the binding) Quilt batting (12.5″x24.5″) Step 1: Pick two of...
