Pinterest food find--all bran muffins.

1 comment:
A favorite childhood memory of mine is when my mom made these:
I was wondering if I could even find the ingredients and I DID at Winco!  The key ingredient is the All-Bran cereal, so if you can find that you are GOLDEN.  I found some alternate ways of making this more healthy--looks like this picture was ripped right from one of the boxes (the current box does NOT have the recipe on it):
I haven't tried the alternate recipes yet but the original was a HIT with orange juice and served warm!

I haven't shared this layout yet because I had a plan, a REALLY good one...I filmed my process video-the quality of the video was so disappointing that I didn't even try to edit it--but I WILL try again!  So here for your viewing pleasure is my layout I made in August with the September kit, Shine Bright by Scrapbook Circle.
 Thanks for letting me share one of my new favorite layouts with you!

fun capture.

No comments:
all I gotta say is SERIOUSLY people!  It's not that hard to stand still and get your picture taken...That being said I dislike getting my picture taken but I know that my family will want SOMETHING of me without making a weird/crazy face...

one side note, I was glad for this impromptu family pic and for the friend who just kept taking the pictures!

The Weekender kit by Scrapbook Circle is full of FUN colors and embellishments--I probably sound like a broken record but I'm serious when I say it! ;)
This picture was taken this year on Mother's Day--she enjoyed taking her picture with the grandkids that could be there--love that their clothes were all so colorful--made using more papers from the kit EASY!

For my layout today I used The Weekender kit by Scrapbook Circle.  The embellishments in this kit are FABULOUS!

 Yes, that is Ella.  This picture is older but I still remember what I was doing...taking pictures of layouts from a higher vantage point.  She was upstairs and ran downstairs because she could hear the camera working.  She loves to get her picture taken--seriously a WEIRDO!

I loved being able to use a more bold background cardstock--it's a stretch for me BUT I am also using up my stash of product!

Pinterest Food find, overnight oats.

1 comment:
Okay so cooked oatmeal is NOT my favorite--REALLY not my favorite.  But I thought I would give oats another try, my grandpa would make his own version of overnight oats, it intrigued/grossed me out...So as an adult I decided to see if I could palette it.  GUESS what?!  I found a recipe I really enjoy.  When I make this recipe I usually split it in half because one "serving" seems to be to much for me.  here is the base recipe and then there are different recipes for flavored, I have added the two that I've tried:

Recipe and photo credits: Wholefully


     ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt (I use Fage)
     ½ cup (heaping) rolled oats
     ⅔ cup unsweetened milk of choice
     1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flaxmeal (I've only used Chia seeds)
     ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
     Pinch of salt
     0-2 tablespoons honey or coconut syrup


Whisk together all ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Spoon into a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

Close and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, but preferably overnight before eating.
Strawberry Cheesecake:

1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup (heaping) rolled oats
⅔ cup unsweetened milk of choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flax meal
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
0-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
¼ cup chopped fresh strawberries
3 tablespoons softened cream cheese
Zest and juice of ½ lemon
Chocolate Peanut Butter:

⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup (heaping) rolled oats
⅔ cup unsweetened milk of choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds or ground flaxmeal
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
0-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

I currently store these in old canning jars, they have glass lids.  But you can also store these in any airtight container you have.

Etsy shop.

So recently I have reopened my etsy shop to sell some handcrafted items, stamps, dies, and other crafting items.  The items in my shop come from my mother's craft room, she donated items to my daughter for her college fund.  So the proceeds go to help a hard working college student!  Some of these items are new and some are lightly loved-I list every week please check out my shop--and thanks for the support!  ScrappyWonderWoman (click on the name for a direct link or at the top)

I recently found this picture in my stash of pictures and I REMEMBER this night, mostly because my sweet 80's hair was blowing as one unit and I was concerned that my aqua net quaffed hair would be messed up!  Consequently convertibles aren't necessarily my favorite- I have long hair and I don't like the idea of it blowing in my face or having to tie it down to "enjoy" the ride-guess it's just not my thing...
I loved the embellishments in the The Weekender kit by Scrapbook Circle, so fun!
