Erin go Braugh!

Tonight I cooked Irish dinner and had a few friends over. Everything turned out great, the corned beef was moist, tender, and falling apart...just the way I like it. I made colcannon which is mashed potatoes, cooked cabbage, leeks and onion baked in the oven. I was nervous about this dish, I thought the cabbage might give it too strong of flavor, but it turned out very mild and yummy. The corned beef I cooked in the crock pot on low for 11 hours, and it was perfect. Hope your St. Paddy's day was great!

Pretty Bunting: part II

I've been working on my little girls play room, it used to be the hide out under the stairs for all of our miscellaneous junk, but now it has been transformed into an adorable miniature kitchen. While I'm not ready to fully reveal the room, I still have some finishing touches to do, here is a peak at the ceiling. I made this amazing bunting using a tutorial from The Purl Bee.

New Camera & Muffin Update

Yesterday I posted my very yummy muffin recipe without pictures because my camera broke. Partly due to the fact that I allowed my toddler to use it to photograph her toys and other interesting items that you can see here on her blog Rock Steady, but mostly because it was old, had been dropped on the road...several times, and filled with sand. This accumulation of abuses has resulted in the button being stuck in video mode. Last night I went to my local evil Walmart and bought this nifty little thing, it's a little larger than my last one a canon elf but worth it. It comes with high def video, fish eye, and miniaturize that makes everything look like small little toys. I'm supper excited about trying out all my new settings.
 Anyways, back to my original point about the muffins, here are the muffins with banana instead of pumpkin because we already ate all the pumpkin ones. Don't they look yummy, go bake a batch!
