White chocolate pumpkin spice cookies… saga

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

When my mom was visit last week we whipped up 2 batches of these YUMMY goodies!

We had a blast making them, but the end product, while it was SUPER YUMMY, wasn’t pretty!  The chips were sinking to the bottom of the cookies and they were falling apart!  We realized that the batter was kinda runny so we added some flour.  That helped a little but they still weren’t right. BUT we realized what the problem was! Instead of canned pumpkin we used fresh pureed pumpkin (that I painstakingly took hours to prepare!) which has a higher water content causing all our issues!  So the moral of the story: used canned pumpkin for this recipe!  Below are some pictures of us making the cookies! There are no pictures of the final product because they just weren’t pretty!

Kitchen sewing projects

I recently fell in LOVE with Pinterest and I have been enjoying searching for fun sewing projects.  I have complied a list of cute kitchen items that I want to make!

Whatever THEY are called… I love them!! But my budget doesn’t always allow for purchasing every cute one I see!  BUT I found some CUTE bags that I can MAKE on Pinterest!

Simple baby quilt

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Several years ago I purchased a baby quilt kit from Joann Fabrics.  The pattern that came with the kit is so easy to follow and quick to make and really turns out a nice quilt.  I have enjoyed using it over the last year or so to create some pretty baby quilts!
