Robot Toddler Bed Sheet & Pillowcase

I found this great tutorial on Pinterest ----> HERE

Love, Love it! So many open possibilities for bed sheets! I started with this robot theme for Sam, he loves Transformers, so that worked & I loved the bright colors! I got 2 yards, but should've gotten 2 1/2 to make the pillowcase. Though I made the pillowcase work with other scrap fabric I had. Next one will be with fire trucks as requested. :)

Heart Pizza - of course!

Red Velvet Cake w/ White Chocolate Frosting!!
I always have to have Red Velvet on V-day! It's tradition!
This first started as a roll which I messed up, so I then
sliced them in long pieces and piled them layer by layer
with the frosting & tada - a layered cake of sorts!
Another lovely pinned recipe ----> HERE

Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day!!

Granola Bar Recipe

one word...... YUMMMMM! ;) This is a great recipe I got from

Homemade Granola Bars
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1.5 c mixture of raw walnuts & almonds (or a combo of your favorite nuts)
1 cup unsweetened coconut (I omitted)
1/2 c dried cranberries or other dried fruit (I used my own dehydrated bananas) 
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c honey
1/4 c brown sugar
3 T butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

1. Spread the oats on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven for about 10 minutes at 300 degrees, stirring often.
2. Repeat with the nuts and coconut, being careful that they don't burn.
3. In a food processor, give the nuts and coconut a few pulses to break them up into smaller pieces. Then pulse 1/2 c of the oats until they are finely ground.
4. Mix both oats, the nuts, cranberries and cinnamon in a large bowl.
5. In a small saucepan, cook the honey, butter, brown sugar and salt over medium heat until it bubbles. Let it bubble for about a minute and remove from heat. Add vanilla and stir well.
6. Spray an 8"x8" baking pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper.
7. Pour the honey mixture over dry mixture in bowl. Toss well until everything's coated.
8. Turn the mixture out into the pan. Put a plastic baggy over your hand and push the granola down into the pan until it's well packed.
9. Bake at 300 degrees for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for a few hours then slice into bars. Wrap in wax paper or store in an airtight container.

*There are so many options on what to put into your bars - go ahead and experiment!!
