ORIGINALLY POSTED NOVEMBER 26, 2011! (Re-posting for Christmas 2012, Because I don't want to re-write the whole thing, since I already did it last year...

Or, if you read the title of this, you might be thinking: "Vina-whata?" I don't really know what you are thinking, because this is the kind of…

September 2011 Daring Baker Challenge = FRESH, FLUFFY, FRENCH

I was so thrilled when the challenge this month was Croissants, As they are on my baking bucket list (see for yourself). So I finally had an excuse to make them. Although, it would've been easier in a cold-weather spell.... Can't wait to try this again in the winter, now that I have done it once, I can learn from my mistakes. Not that there were many mistakes, They tasted AMAZING. Thanks for the great Challenge Sarah! Blog-checking lines: The Daring Bakers go retro this month! Thanks to one…

Angel Food Cake (checked off the bucket list!)

This is my cat Ali... "Helping" make the Cake Okay, so I have always wanted to make my own angel food cake... (that is why it is on my kitchen bucket list) So I finally did it. It started when my mom and I finally found THE angel food cake pan that we had been dreaming about... For $2 at Value Village! Then finally I went home with the recipe from Joy of Baking, my mom bought a ton of eggs, and cake flour, and I brought my Kitchen Aid... and Ta-Da! Angel Food cake!! We had grand plans of…

20 Days until Christmas...Sock Snowman

I came across a Tutorial on Pinterest for some Sock Snowmen, and I instantly knew that it was fate... I have this habit of going through socks like Crazy... but then I never throw them out. Also, our dogs like to steal socks and then play tug of war with them... So I have alot of socks that either need to be used for something, or thrown out... Enter Sock snowmen! I am not going to give you a Tutorial... But if you have some socks, some rice and a glue gun, then you can totally make one of…

24 days until Christmas... Snowman Bag-Tags

I'm starting out with something SUPER easy. Like you can knock a ton of these out in just a few minutes if you really wanted to. I saw them on pinterest way back in the summer i think, and I knew I had to make them this year. They are too cute (and too easy) not to! The original Tutorial is here. It's from Crafts by Amanda... And it is a genius-ly simple idea to really dress up a bag of Christmas cookies Like the ones I am planning to make for our neighbor/landlord. I did make mine a teeny…

22 Days til Christmas... Oh-no-Gingerbread Man Ornament

Like the snowman tags and the pretty flowery-star thing from the last two days? Today, I'm going to share a tutorial with you... NOT me giving you a tutorial on how to do something, but I'll send you the link to it. Because it is easy to follow, and pretty thorough, and the results are amazing. I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it on Pinterest, but now that he is hanging in front of my face (until we get our tree up), I am even more in love. The Tutorial and awesome idea come…

Did you like the snowman tags from yesterday? Super cute right? Today, is a little different. It's a felt ornament.

I obviously don't own this photo, or take credit for any of this beautiful work. I wanted to share my inspiration, and help pay the inspiration forward. ABOVE = Wandering Lydia's (my…
