Recipe Tuesday: Puffins :)

I love the Bakerella site. All the cake pops are so cute. I found this recipe on her site and we make it at least once a week. We call them Puffins (how cute is that?!)

Mini Maple Pancake Muffins

Generously grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan with non-stick spray.

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2/3 cup buttermilk*
1 egg
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

*I did not have buttermilk so I used this instead: Use one tablespoon of acid (lemon juice or white vinegar) for every cup of milk. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before using. Don't forget to measure out 2/3 cup!*
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a medium bowl. Sift together with a wire whisk.
  • In another bowl, stir buttermilk, egg, maple syrup and melted butter until just combined.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. Reserve a few chips to sprinkle on the tops.
  • Bake for 8-9 minutes.
Makes 24 mini pancake muffins.
Let cool slightly and remove from the pan. You may need to use a toothpick around the edges to separate the pancake muffins from the pan.
Serve immediately with warmed butter if you like or even just with maple syrup.

Tutorial Tuesday

It is Round Robin time with Amy at Keeping up with the Schultz Family. Go check it out and you can link up too!

I know I am a little late, but it is still Tuesday for a few more hours. I saw this in Micheals with the Cruicut things and things you can make. I do not have the Cricut Expressions, only the original so I made do with what I had and ended up changing it anyway.

Since my family and I went to Disney World a month ago and my kids love looking at pictures of it I decided to make a mini photo album. The one that Michaels had was the same concept but for an Autograph book, which I may make for our Dinsey Cruise in the Spring.

What you need:

Cardstock, chipboard (or heavy cardboard), scissors,

1. Draw Circles for the Mickey on the chipboard or cardboard. I did the big circle at 6 1/2 " & the ears at 4"

2. Cut them out

3. Use your board template to make 4 from black cardstock, cut out 4
4. Adhere to front and back of the mickey Cardbaord.

5. Cut out 11 white cardstock cirlces just under 4"
6. Adhere 1 to the front of the black mickeys

7. Use your template and make 10 of these "hats"

8. Put the black hats on the 10 white circles, or you can put the white circles on the "hats" if you want more of the white showing.

9. Put all together and punch holes in everything. I used a crocodile punch to cut the holes.
10. Put the rings thru the holes

11. Decorate the front any way you want. This is what I put.

Princess Tutus

I just finished making this tutu that was inspired by Sleeping Beauty. I used white ribbon instead of elastic for the waist. Amanda made the other Snow White tutu. She wrapped the elastic with blue ribbon. I think they turned out so cute!




My SIL sent me this site that has a shortcut on cutting tulle. It is awesome!!
