Some More Stars and Stripes

Hello my Blog followers, I have missed you!  First of all let me apologize for being absent for so long.  We were so busy moving in to our new place and had fathers day, my husbands birthday, and a very sad teething baby all going on at once.  Then on top of all that my body felt it was a good time to get very sick!  Isn't that how it always goes as a mother though ;).  I'm am still recovering, but I thought I  ought to let you all know that the Blog is still around!!

Today we are going to share just a few more Stars and Stripes ideas from Doodlebug Designs Blog.  We are going to be featuring Doodlebug Stars and Stripes in our email on Monday at 50% off, so we thought we would give you a head start on some ideas.  I love this line so much with all of its patriotic flare, I couldn't help but share some more.

First we have a more masculine layout that I really love.

  And second some adorable little treat bags.
I hope this got your creative juices flowing!  Be sure to check back on Tuesday for an all new recipe for Tasty Tuesday!

Happy Crafting!

Grandma Browns Hot Peach Shortcake

My Grandma was such a sweet lady and always made me, and I'm sure my siblings, feel so special!  She would send us a hand made birthday card every birthday and would make these cute little envelopes out of wrapping paper for Christmas and put a $2 bill in it.  Best of all she would make a pumpkin pie just for me every Thanksgiving because she knew how much I loved it! 

My Grandma was such a good cook and made countless dishes that I grew up with and love to this day.  I'm excited to share one of my favorite recipes with you, Grandma Browns Hot Peach Shortcake!

What you will need:
2 1/3 cups Bisquick
3 TBS sugar
3 TBS melted butter
2/3 C. milk
about 3-4 peaches (or other fruit of choice)
Half and Half, to your liking
Powdered sugar, to your liking

Set the oven to bake at 425.  In a medium bowl combine Bisquick, sugar, butter, and milk and mix together until well combined.  Then spoon into a greased pie pan.  Bake for 15-17 minutes.  Then while still hot cut and serve into bowls, top with fruit, powdered sugar, and half and half.  My family has also tries this with strawberries, raspberries, and oranges and it all tasted fantastic,  Enjoy! Serves 8

This is one of my favorite, remind me of home, comfort food to make, and the best part it is so so easy.  I Hope you enjoy and be sure to check our last post to enter to win the June Giveaway!

Happy Crafting!
