Banana Nut Bread baking tip

Here's a wonderful baking tip if you love
Zucchini or Banana Nut Bread
A while ago my husband and I were visiting with his mother...and
she had made her delicious zucchini bread and I just
had to ask her what she put on top of the her bread...she
informed me that it was quite simple...her secret
was a little sprinkle of brown sugar on top just before baking!
So I now do the same and it really makes a difference and
believe me if I don't put it on there my husband notices
right a way and is quick to tell me that I
forgot the brown sugar!
It's wonderful to have the experience of our parents around even
for something so simple...so to my mother-in-law
thank you for the tip and for all the
guidance you still share with us all!
 We love you!
It's really good and when you put a little
sweet butter it's even better!

Nightie Night Owl Pillow & Blanket

Nightie Night Owl & Baby
Pillow & Blanket
Mommy Owl now has a baby!
I made the little Owl to go
along with the big one!
You fold the blanket
and put it inside the
pocket on the back side, this is
perfect for traveling...and kids
will love it and baby
has a blankie too!
 I wish I would of had one of
these when I took my
little girls to story time at
our local library!
 This Nightie Night Owl Blanket
is 36"x 36" and the pillow
is 15"x 16"
I got this cute pattern from
"Crochet Magazine"
and was designed by 
Debra Arch!

Pistachio Pudding Marshmallow Squares


Now that the kids are out of school
and summer is upon us...it's
time to make some summer time
snacks...I use to make these for
my kids and they loved them...you can
make these as low-fat as you would
like, by using fat free or low-fat
cool whip and crackers...you can
skip the chocolate all together...but
I really love a little chocolate every
now and then...mostly now!!
 
Pistachio Pudding
Marshmallow Squares

Here are the ingredients to make
these low fat that
even the kids will love snacks!
1 3.4oz. box of Instant Pistachio
Pudding & Pie filling
1/2 cup of Mini Marshmallow's
(more or less)
1 box of Honey Maid low-fat graham crackers
1 8oz tub of Cool Whip
2 squares of Semi Sweet Chocolate
Use a cheese grater for the chocolate

Mix the pudding according to the box
this size of pudding is 2 cups cold milk
whipped with a hand whisk for
2 minutes
Fold in the cool whip
and the marshmallow's
Snap the crackers down the middle
and spoon on the pupping mix
making a sandwich
dip each side of the
square in the chocolate!
(you can freeze the pudding for a little while
to help it set)
Wrap each square with plastic
 wrap and freeze

Or you can do this and let the whole family dig in!!

A Day at Snoqualmie Falls Park

A few weeks ago when we had
an unbelievable sunny week
my husband and I drove to 
The Pacific Northwest is so beautiful
especially on a sunny day!

I have never seen so many trees in

You could feel the cool spray of
water on your face just
standing there!
If you are close by and haven't

and a Great Motorcycle Ride!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It's Just beautiful!!!
