Move over Martha

This is how you make supper & desert at my house!

I also made my first ever made from complete and utter scratch pie tonight! I’m so proud of myself……I’ll tell you if it was actually edible later, because it’s in the oven as we speak. And yes, I know I got a little fun and funky with the top!

What's in your purse?

There are times when I think to myself, I need to downsize my purse, just carry less. After a bit of bickering on Joel's part I finally decided to take a look at what was actually in my purse!

Much to my surprise I found many odd things in there! We all need to cart around socks, silly bandz, empty plastic Easter eggs, empty unused ziplock baggie, and of course a camera in there, right?!?

Tell me, what's in your purse!

Scrumptious Pull Apart Bread

This week the kids have been attending a Vacation Bible School (VBS) at our local Lutheran church. This is the second year they’ve attended. Last year they did a BBQ afterwards and this year they had a breakfast before!

I’m really not that great at making breakfast foods. It’s just not my cup of tea. I actually quit making cinnamon rolls from scratch because they always tasted like rocks! Joel’s mom makes AMAZING to die for rolls and mine just can’t stand up. So I really was in a situation on what to make for this breakfast.

I hopped on face book and asked my friends what to do. One of them suggested I make this Cinnamon Sugar Pull Apart Bread.

It looked so yummy and so simple. And it was just that. I decided I was going to use my bread maker to make up the dough which worked out perfectly once I realized my machine had a delay function! I threw the ingredients in the machine and set it for 7:30 am. When I got up the dough was ready, and it didn’t take long to get it thrown together in the oven!


Since I didn’t have the pan size called for I improvised and just put it into two loaf pans. Not thinking of blogging about it, this is the only picture I got of the process! I did end up making up a quick cream cheese frosting to drizzle on the top, which really just brought it all together! It tasted so yummy, and was half gone! I’d call it a total success. Not to mention the fact that I’ve been craving it since Sunday!

Staying afloat!

Man, I did so good for a while at catching up and getting back on track with blogging. Seems I get a full work week in and I loose track of my time. Things like being on the computer and blogging don't seem quite as important as snuggling up on the couch with a good movie and my kids. And well when you can't find your card reader it makes it hard to dump pictures onto the computer! :(

I will be back on here next week with some more updated posts, and a review/giveaway for sure. How do you "big" bloggers do it? A blog post every day? AND some of you are full time WOTH mom's! KUDDOS!
