Felt Puzzle Game for Toddler – Snowman

Felt Puzzle Game for Toddler – Snowman

For Christmas we did a few homemade presents and this has to be my favorite. Not only because Ada loves it so much, but because if cost nothing and took about 5 minutes to make. If you didn’t already have felt, this project would definitely cost less than $2. Felt sticks to itself, so it makes a perfect little puzzle game for toddlers because they can easily move the pieces around and they stay in put. You could do any shape, the...

Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

Favorite healthy muffins yet. I have no idea how these taste so good, because I didn’t put in very much sweetener, but Brian, Ada and I have been gobbling these things down like they were oreos.

I’m not a huge fan of muffin toppings, but this one is really good. Sweet and crunchy and...

This year Brian definitely won the calendar portion of the gift giving. He found this weird niche men in kilts...

Grandma’s Toffee

Grandma’s Toffee

This is the best toffee you’ll ever eat. No really, I made some for some friends for Christmas and they made me promise never to make it for them again because it was too good (they’re the super healthy beautiful type). I know that doesn’t sound like a great compliment, but it is. My grandma has made this toffee every year for everyone in the family for as long as I can remember and only recently has she shared the secret...
