Pumpkin Muffin -

Low calorie muffin alternative.  No milk, oil, or eggs, just yellow cake mix, a 15oz can of pumpkin, a dash of pumpkin pie spice (optional) and that's it!  Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes.  Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy.

For cupcake version, top with a vanilla or cream cheese frosting.  For a maple twist, add maple extract to taste.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.”  -- A.A. Milne

Puffed Apple Pancake -- there is nothing more beautiful and perfect than this on a Saturday morning to accompany  my cup of coffee.  This hales from one of my favorites places ever -- the California Central Coast.  I used to have a picture of this creation, but can't seem to find it.  So, I guess I will have to make it this Saturday and take a photo to post.  Stand by for that, and in the meantime make this lovely and tell me what you think!

Gerber Daisy Hair Clips -- I love Gerber Daisy's so much, I thought I would make hair clips out of silk daisy's and wear them! 

Handmade Citrus Scrub -- super simple and easy to make, and is a great gift.  Take a large craft stick (tongue depressor-size), drill a small hold through one end, and run thin jute twine through it, tie off in a knot.  Makes a great applicator.  This scrub is in a small jelly jar and wrapped in a hand towel ready to gift!

Pacifier Clips -- These clips are for the Avent Soothie pacifiers.  You slide the ribbon through the hole on the pacifier, then run the clip-end through the ribbon to secure the pacifier.  These are made from 100% cotton, and are machine washable.


Burp Clothes -- Made from 100% cotton, and machine washable, these burp clothes are every moms lifesaver.  I pair them with a paci-clip for a sweet little baby gift.
