Healthy and Delicious Chicken Fingers Recipe

Monday, October 20, 2014

I hardly ever post recipes, well this is the second one. Even though my cooking concoctions often get complimented, I dont' necessarily enjoy cooking. I do cook because I believe in healthy living, so good nutritious meals are a must. The recipes I usually make have to be quick (the less time I spend in the kitchen the better), healthy and approved by my kids, at least by the majority of my children. I came across this particular recipe while waiting in the doctor's office and leafing through a variety of parenting magazines. I contemplated stealing the magazine (can't remember what it was) for a moment, but then felt ashamed by my thoughts and tried to memorize the recipe instead. I couldn't remember all the details, but enough to make something yummy and loved by my children. It's one of my favorite recipes - it's not labor intensive, quick to make and not only delicious straight out of the oven, but also very good the next day eaten cold. Most importantly, it's good for you and my children love it. I present you with Yummy Chicken Fingers.

It seems I can't stay away from Project Run and Play. I wasn't planning to sew along this round, and here I am presenting my second project. It's the denim week, and who can resist that. :)

Men's Shirt Upcylce

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

I decided to upcycle another men's shirt for Project Run and Play. My husband only wears button down shirts to work, so I always have a fresh bunch to reimagine into something new. I love upcycling men's shirts, I have done a few in the past (here, here, here). My favorite part is the fabric - if you use a nice shirt, it feels great and often doesn't wrinkle much.

Adding a Circular Detail to a Knit Dress - Tutorial

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

I made this dress a while ago for the series hosted by  Hayley of Mouse House Creations and Celina of Petit a Petit and Family. I still love the dress and wear it often, it is also one of my most viewed posts. I had quite a few requests for the tutorial of the circular insert. Yesterday, I was making a pair of pjs for my daughter and thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to do the tutorial.

Kindergarten Series with Sewing Like Mad

Monday, September 8, 2014

I first made this for the awesome Sewing for Kindergarten series hosted by Sewing Like Mad, (If you haven't heard of Mie's blog, you definitely need to check it out), but since it's 100% my signature style and it was made within the right time frame, I an also linking it to Project Run and Play.

Mulberry Tunic Remix

Monday, August 25, 2014

I originally made this to join in the fun during the Willow & Co contests, but since it fits the theme perfectly this week at Project Run and Play, I am linking it up there as well.  I used my pattern, the Mulberry tunic, to make a dress for the youngest child a while ago. So I thought I would make one for Ania as well, but of course make it a bit different.

Bundle Up Boys Pattern Tour

Friday, August 22, 2014

I am super excited to be one of the bloggers to showcase a new boys pattern bundle collection. It seriously consists of the coolest boy patterns ever. There are so many awesome patterns in the bundle, I had the hardest time selecting the pattern I wanted to showcase, ultimately choosing Zander's Hoodie by EYMM for the main pattern and Field Research pants by Scientific Seamstress to compliment the hoodie. I fell in love with the hoodie as soon as I saw the picture. I wanted to make an asymmetrical zipper sweatshirt for a while now, so the Zander's Hoodie pattern was perfect.
