Scrappy HST Quilt

Scrappy HST quilt

This scrappy HST quilt was a long time coming, but I’m so glad it is done! Each half square triangle is a remnant from some other past project or quilt, so this one is full of good memories.

Crafty Cupboard Scrappy HST Quilt

I quilted it with loopy loops, and every once in a while I doubled the loop just to be different. After my last quilt was sent off to be quilted on a long arm machine… this [...]

Sour Cream Pancakes

Sour Cream Pancakes

I first ate these sour cream pancakes at my sister-in-law’s house several months ago, and ever since, this is the only way I want pancakes. I HAD to have the recipe. They are SO delicious, and the sour cream makes them extra fluffy too.  I eat more of these pancakes at one sitting than regular buttermilk pancakes, and if you knew of my love of pancakes, you’d realize the significance of that!

Oubly Baby Announcements

I’ll admit that one of our favorite parts about having a new baby is showing our bundle of joy to others so they can take their turn oohing and aahing over such a cutie patootie. Not everyone lives nearby, however, so this is where birth announcements come in! We wish everyone could take their turn counting fingers and toes and  changing diapers  breathing in the new baby smell. Too bad birth announcements aren’t also scratch-and-sniff ;)

I was looking into options and discovered that

Shark Week and The Great Blue Cupcake

My oldest daughter has been talking Sharks non-stop for the past few weeks after she saw a documentary about the Hammerhead Shark. So when I told her that Shark Week was next week and we could celebrate with some Great Blue Cupcakes from Cold Stone Creamery, she was so excited!

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Sweet and sour chicken recipe

My mother-in-law really raised my husband’s expectations for what food is supposed to taste like. After almost 9 years of marriage, I am just getting the hang of cooking, and it is because of great recipes like this Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe given to me by my sweet mother-in-law. She raised 9 children, 7 of whom were hungry young men, so of course I take her recipes seriously!

This recipe is mostly sweet with a kick of “sour” in it, and everyone- even my picky kids- [...]
