I found these the other day and I can't wait to try them out.....


The best part is that these adorable little pies were taken from freezer and put directly in the oven. How easy. And how yummy!

Here is the link for instructions: Single Serving Pie-In-A-Jar

Happy Holidays!

Accessories for the Play Kitchens!

I have heard of a few people getting play kitchens for their daughters. Or even embracing their creative sides and making one! So I thought I'd share two different sites with wonderful tutorials for making food for your kitchens!

This first tutorial can be found at So You Think You're Crafty!

Many other tutorials are available in this round-up over at One Pretty Thing.

For those that don't sew - some of these I'm sure could be modified slightly and glued instead!

Great Craft for Boys: Car Cozie

I was given the Chalk Mat (similar to this) at my shower for my little boy (the older one). He of course loves it. He spends more time begging us to draw something in order to wipe it of and see us pretend to be upset. It's so cute. He also loves it when his Dad draws a race track for his cars. So when I saw this cute idea I knew instantly I'll be making one. I'm thinking Stocking Stuffer? Complete with new cars! Sharla over at My Little Gems provides an excellent tutorial on how to make this adorable Car Cozie.
