The Greatest Idea of All Time

I saw this in this month's Everyday Food magazine and had to make it immediately.

You could probably cut your bell pepper ring a little thicker and add cheese or veggies or another egg. And it fits perfectly on an English muffin or toast!

*high kick* Awesome, why didn't I think of this?

Oh, Yes I Did Just Make Crackers

I've been having a streak of bees in my bonnet. Every day it's been something different.

Today's bee: making crackers (of all things). Took ~20 minutes start-to-finish and I was able to make it in my tiny Cuisinart food processor. Bonus!

I made them with Parmesan, but maybe bleu or Gorgonzola would be good too!

If you're on a diet, don't make these. Yes, I'm on a wedding-dress diet, but I'm putting them away RIGHT NOW. Promise!

Recipe found here. Enjoy!

Hawk's Map Quilt

I finished the map quilt and I love the way it turned out. Maybe one of my all-time favorites!

It was made for my friend Lisa's baby, Hawk (that's only his name until his real name is revealed once he's born).

My favorite part is the neighborhood above Little Italy in NYC. Here, they call it "Norita." I love it.

p.s. The idea was totally snatched from this website - I couldn't help it, it was too great an idea!

The Greatest Idea of All Time

(I don't think I've ever said that, but I feel it appropriate at this moment.)

Look. At. This. (found here)

Is this not the greatest baby shower favor you have ever seen in your entire life? How up my alley is this? Blog-readers (all 11 of you), next baby shower I throw, I'm using this idea. So please act surprised.

Should you decide to run with this idea too, here is my go-to/fail-proof/easy-peasy recipe (I omit the sugar).

*high kicks* ALL DAY for this idea. I love it!!
