After my first foray into French Toast, I decided my life needs more.
So, I decided to develop my own recipe. And since these Banana Caramel Cupcakes were so popular last year, I knew that I had to try that combination along with crisp, crunchy fried bread.
Oh my word. What a taste sensation. As soon as OH and I bit into a big ol’ bit we both went “OMG this is insane!!”

Despite living in close proximity to Ireland for a third of my life, and despite my many tries, I’ve never quite found a taste for Guinness. Something about its deep earthy taste reminds me of blood. Appetizing, no? Maybe that’s why they say its so good for anemia. Who knows? But I can tell you that I’ve offended a lot of people with my distaste for the beverage, and I keep trying to find a way to make it delicious.

My latest quilt pattern is called Windmills at Night.  I designed it specifically for beginning quilters, using pre-cut fabric strips called “jelly rolls”.  The bright red fabrics touch off the black and white fabrics beautifully, and this striking lap quilt will make a fabulous addition to your decor. 

Here’s an Easter treat that is decorative, delicious, and filled with whatever you please. A hollow chocolate egg can hold jelly beans, chocolate eggs, marshmallow bunnies, or even money. You can even leave both sides of the egg in the molds while you fill them with fudge, and then assemble the egg once the fudge is set.

I finally got around to a project I’ve had pinned for years…a Spring Tulip Wreath diy! I’m so excited with how easy it was and honestly how quick it was to complete.  I friend of mine on Facebook recently completed her own wreath and that ended up being the final bit of inspiration I needed!

I’m a big snacker.  Lately, I’ve been trying to eat healthier snacks.   Sorry, Girl Scouts, but it’s true.  While I have a secret love affair with Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties, let me just tell you that I’d much rather be eating a plate of fresh veggies with some ranch dip.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit Review and Swatches
The Classified Chic
I thought I start off the month with a contour kit review. I had been eyeing a few contour kits lately, as they are all the rage.  There were so many to choose from, but I decided on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette.  You’ve probably already heard of this kit, and their brow pomade.  I own the brow pomade and absolutely love it!

Easter Egg Placemat Tutorial
Leaves & Stitches

I finished the Easter Egg placemats last weekend and I LOVE how they turned out. They were fairly easy to make so I’m sharing the patterns I used and a quick tutorial. There are so many different ways you could decorate these. If you’re looking for inspiration, kids’ coloring pages are a great place to start.

Real Life Horror: Superbugs

I have written on this subject before. Read my article How Will The World End? I believe ‘Superbugs’ are a real threat and I have the Medical and Science communities to back me.

Leftover Mashed Potatoes Into Potato Cakes
~Taylor-Made Homestead~

Several weeks ago I found myself with an abundance of potatoes and realized there was no way RancherMan & I could eat them all before they went bad.  I went into high-gear preservation mode & dehydrated many of them, but some of them went into the freezer.  When I freeze potatoes I cook and mash them but add nothing else – no salt, pepper, milk or butter – just cooked mashed potatoes.  I section them in sandwich bags into serving sizes & freeze them into individual bricks. To use them I’ll pull a brick of frozen mashed potatoes out of the freezer the night before and allow it to thaw in the refrigerator overnight.  (The thawed mashed potatoes usually release quite a bit of water and that potato water is not wasted but poured into my weekly endless soup pot.)

Rainbow Rice: the easy way
Just Be Well
Our theme this month in our Homegrown Preschooler curriculum is rainbows and rhythm. We have been having a blast with all of our rainbow projects (mostly because rainbow is Zoey's favorite color). I've seen rainbow rice so many times, but it always looked so time intensive so I avoided making it.

Bliss & Faith

As a creative entrepreneur, I’ve experience each of these feelings at some point.  I see plenty of other established creative entrepreneurs who appear to have it all together all the time.  Especially in the perfect world of Instagram, full of pretty desktops, beautiful inspiration boards, and overall gorgeousness its so easy to feel like you just don’t make the cut.  I’m sharing a few ways you can work through feeling these emotions, how to turn them into productivity, and how to guard yourself against them.

The Ultimate Vegan BLT
Strength and Sunshine

he Ultimate Vegan BLT that’s also gluten-free and soy-free. Smoky eggplant bacon, crisp lettuce, ripe tomato, and a homemade tahini based mayo, sandwiched between two toasty pieces of your favorite bread. Lunchtime will never be boring again!

DIY Project: Tutorial for Succulent Garden in Egg Carton
Dagmar Bleasdale

Easter is just around the corner! I’ve been so busy that I haven’t decorated for it like I wanted to, but I made this miniature succulent garden with eggs shells and a recycled egg carton.

Delicious Brownie Bowls from Scratch!
Southern Krazed

Brownies are an all time favorite treat at my house. But, how about putting a little different spin on them? Instead of plain brownies, Brownie Bowls are fun and delicious! Brownie Bowls are also perfect for adding your favorite topping to. Add in a scoop of ice cream, bananas or any other topping you may like with brownies for a delicious treat. Oh, and don’t forget the sprinkles! Got to have sprinkles!! Brownie Bowls are perfect for birthday parties, school parties, dessert or just an everyday treat!

A Spark of Creativity
I decided to fry up some Apple Pie Tacos and boy were they delicious.  The sweet and savory sugar and cinnamon mixed with the crunch of the tortillas and apples will have this melting in your mouth.  This is the most perfect dessert dish for parties, events, holidays, or just a cozy night in with your loved ones.

Brown Butter Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m totally ready for Spring. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy a good snow day, but with just a couple of weeks left until the start of Spring, I’m craving some foods that celebrate the season! With Easter right around the corner, I’ve been dabbling in all foods that celebrate the holiday. This recipe for brown butter twice baked sweet potatoes with goat’s cheese and avocado cream is just one of the many reasons to celebrate!

My Beauty Box Review

We hear more and more reports these days of the benefits of coffee. In moderation, it actually has a few health advantages. Because it is loaded with antioxidants – and caffeine – it can also be great for the skin. Here are three surprising beauty uses for coffee grounds and how you can start incorporating them as soon as you finish brewing that next pot of joe.

Repurposed Bed Spring Craft Storage
DIY Inspired

Recently I posted a tour of my craft room. Believe it or not, I am running out of space for my stuff… I know… I’m crazy. My daughter outgrew her toddler bed and I wanted to repurposed her bed spring somehow.  After thinking about it for a few days I ended up making Repurposed Bed Spring Craft Storage! Here’s how I did.

Making The Kitchen Mine~Before & After
Kathe With An E

When we first came to look at our house to buy, one thing I knew would change, if we bought it, was the kitchen backsplash.

Classy Yet Trendy
Do you have a blog?  If so, how long have you been blogging?  I've been blogging on Classy Yet Trendy since July 2014.  In these last few months I have learned a lot.  I've found techniques that work and some that don't.  Just in the last few months my blog went from 10,000 to over 30,000 views.  I used these ways to more than double my page views!
