 Every fall we get these awesome mushrooms in our yard.  I just love them and take tons of photos of them.   This year they popped up right after I got my new camera, so I think these are the best shots I've taken yet.

Pretty from the top down!  
And this one on eye level of the shrooms, with the dew on the grass.  Now my old point and shoot never would have captured this just like I wanted it.

Yum, Yum, Yum

Buffalo Chicken Meatball Subs.

I love chicken, in every which way, but my husband not so much.  The poor guy puts up with how much I cook it, but I am always looking for new ways to spice it up for him.
I buy ground chicken and make it into meatballs, I bake them in the oven till golden brown and cooked through.  While they are cooking I whip up a bechamel sauce, which i then add hot sauce and ranch to, too kick up the flavor.  When the meatballs are done I put them in the sauce then put three in a bun.  I try to get the buns to stand up on the cookie sheet, so when I put the cheese on top it gets nice and meltly and the tops of the buns get crispy brown.  Then I put them in the oven with the broiler on and this is the finished product.  They have been a big hit with our family and a few of my sons friends who have tried them.

Sugar and Spice

One of my new creations.  A three piece frame set for a little girls room.  I stamped the girls from Prima stamps, and then paper pieced their clothes and colored with copics.

 Here is sweet blond Sugar.

 Sassy red head and in the middle.

And last but not least brunette Spice.

You'll find these sweet ladies on my Etsy shop!  Feel free to request a custom order if you'd like them in another color scheme!

Appley Goodness

So as happens at this time of year I am over flowing on apples.  So I decided instead of pie I'd try some apple won tons, I'd been seeing them all over pinterest, and they looked super yummy!

 I tried folding these little guys up a couple different ways and these two are my favorite.  Of course with my new camera I also had to have a Food Network type photo shoot with these little guys.

This way is super cute.  First I just cooked down some apples into pie filling, filled the little won ton shells (be careful too much filling and kabloom).  Then I baked them in the oven and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar when they came out.  I thought they tasted great when they were hot and fresh out of the oven, as they cooled they got a little funky and were not as enjoyable.
