Gooey Chocolate Skillet Cake Ice Cream Sundae

 The batter before it was baked
 The finished product
And ten seconds later

My friends, Kelsie and Sidnee, came over the other day for a Pretty Little Liars marathon and we had to have a dessert so we made this treat and it was inhaled minutes after taking it out of the oven. It's a chocolate cake with a chocolate pecan frosting with vanilla ice cream and caramel on top.

Ranch Roasted Potatoes

I saw these on Pinterest and my Grandpa had just brought over red potatoes from his garden, so I thought I'd try them out and see how I liked them and I have to say that they were pretty tasty! All you need are red potatoes, 1/4 cup of vegetable oil and a packet of powered ranch mix. You mix it all together in a plastic bag and then you bake them at 450 for 35 minutes.

Strawberry Jam!

My mom and I made strawberry jam a long time ago and I forgot to do a blog about it, so here it is now.

Homemade Headband Holder

 I think this is such a cool thing, because it holds my headbands and I no longer have to use a whole drawer for them and I know right where they are.
 And if the stretchy headbands don't fit on the outside I can just put them on the inside!
All the supplies you need to make this holder: Empty quaker oats container, fabric scraps and a hot glue gun.

3 Years Later...

After going through the routine of going through all the family blogs, I decided it was time to figure out how to log back into mine so that I could make it look neat and not so three years old. So here is the updated blog. The post is a disappointment, I know, but I will find something to post soon! I promise!

Knowledge Value Project!

I started by cutting out 7 inch squares.
Each layer took 36 squares.

I sandwiched the top, middle and bottom layers of flannel.

Mom and I organized the squares until they looked just right.

After I sewed the blocks together (with some more help from Mom) it was time to cut the edges so they would fray when we washed it.

Here it is. We also made a burp cloth to make up the 10 hours I needed to spend on this Value Project.

I plan on giving this quilt to one of my Young Women's leaders. She is expecting a baby in November.
