No-sew Quiet Book: Faces

Pin It
I was organizing pictures on my computer the other day and came across these that I never posted from last year! Yes, last January I started making my toddler a few quiet book pages to keep in our church bag to help entertain him at church. I posted the other quiet book pages here on the blog, but somehow this one fell through the cracks.
Even though it's already been a year my toddler still plays with these pages during church. I don't know if it's because he only gets to see them once a week or what, but it's nice to see them still being used!
 This 'Faces' page was really easy to put together, I wasn't worried about perfect shapes and design I just wanted something quick and easy that my little guy could play with, and this is what I came up with.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Pin It
Every so often I buy some bananas, with every intention of eating them of course, but it doesn't end up happening.
They always sit on my counter and never get touched.
In hopes of never wasting any bananas again, I turned to the internet to find an amazing recipe for banana bread.
I found this recipe from Rachel Ray and decided to give it a try. I did change a few things, and it turned out delicious!
I really like that it only makes 1 loaf of bread since I'm really the only one that eats it, and I end up scarfing it down within a day or two....anyways, on to the recipe!

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

Pin It
First post of the new year and it's a yummy, hearty soup for the cold months we still have ahead!
I, along with everyone else I'm sure, have quite a few recipes that are seasonal.
I only want to make them, or even feel like making them, at certain times of the year.
This chowder is a prime example of that.  I actually crave making this soup on cold winter nights.
As soon as the cold weather starts up this recipe is added to our rotations and it usually makes an appearance once every other week.
I love that it's full of veggies, creamy, flavorful, and filling.
I found this recipe last year on Pinterest and changed it up just a little bit to make it my own.
It's one of the ways I can get my kids to willingly eat broccoli ;)
