Pinterest FAIL...Crisp SAVE!

Hi everyone,
Well, I'm glad I didn't post my original blog yesterday. It was "Wednesday Yummies" so I was planning on posting this recipe...
Slow Cooker Tortellini

I saw it on Pinterest, thought it looked yummy and so it cooked away in my slow cooker yesterday afternoon.
Total Pinterest FAIL! I'm glad I didn't post it. We did eat it, but I wont make it again. It was mushy and soupy. Ugh. However, I did watch CBC's Best Recipes Ever yesterday afternoon and they made this...

Maple Apple and Blueberry Crisp

 I knew I had the ingredients on hand, it was easy to whip up, tasted delicious and I even ate it for breakfast this morning ;) You'll love it. (sorry I don't know why this is all bolded...weird).

What you need:

6 cups (1.5 L) sliced peeled apples
1 pkg (300 g) frozen blueberries
1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
2 tbsp (25 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon

1/2 cup (125 mL) packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (125 mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (125 mL) rolled oats
1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon
1/3 cup (75 mL) maple syrup
2 tbsp (25 mL) butter, melted


In large, bowl, toss together apples, blueberries, granulated sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinmamon; spread in 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish.
In bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, rolled oats and cinnamon. Pour in maple syrup and butter; toss until moistened. Sprinkle over fruit. Bake in 350 F (180 C) oven for 1 hour or until golden and fruit is fork-tender. Let cool on rack for 15 minutes.

Keep it Beautiful.

Baby Girl!!

Our baby girl is here! Our angel baby arrived fashionably late (6 days late) on April 2nd at 3:27am. She's gorgeous, healthy and weighed in just over 10lbs. What a big girl! We are very excited and so are her older brothers. My Fix-it returned to work today after two weeks of taking care of all of us.

I'm sorry I've been MIA on the blogging front for the last little while but I'm looking forward to jumping back in. I have lots of ideas so please stick with me.

This is the first time that we haven't had our baby's nursery all ready to go. Our little guy is only a year and a half and just too little to get the boot out of his crib, so for now our baby girl is chillin' in the bassinet in our room and our little guy gets to have his room for a bit longer.  I'm thinking he'll start bunking with his big brother sometime in the summer.

For now, here are a few cute ideas that I'm thinking about for our baby girl's nursery....yeah for pink!

These cute wall decals are new from Land of Nod...I'm loving the silver and the white dots. Would look really pretty on a pink wall.  Hmmm...

The lattice pattern is also pretty on the crib wall.  This would be a great DIY...
How adorable is this ballerina painting? I found it on
A few of these wall touches, new bedding, white furniture and pink walls will give our baby girl a fresh.fabulous.sophisticated nursery to lay her sweet head. 

Keep it Beautiful.
