Super quick and easy! The little man didn't even fuss during the imprinting process. Win! I will probably mount this one in a shadowbox and put it on the wall. You could also paint it, but I personally love how it looks like sand.  


half cup whole wheat flour
half cup salt
one third cup water

PS: You can use regular flour if you'd like a smoother consistency.

Preheat oven to 200F. Combine ingredients to form a consistent dough. Roll into balls and form small patties. Gently press little one's foot into the dough. Bake for 2.5 hours. Done!

I stumbled upon this awesome deal on (prescription!) glasses, and wanted to pass along the goodness. Check out and get a FREE pair of glasses. Just pay shipping, which is $6.95. They even include a case, a wipe and little toolkit. The style I chose is #CSMY8022, and they were originally $44.90. Can't really beat that!

Just wanted to share an awesome recipe that I totally, absolutely did not find on Pinterest..


- 1 package fresh mushrooms, washed + stalks trimmed
- 1 egg
- Parmesan cheese
- Sprinkle of seasoning (garlic, parsley, pepper.. lots of possibilities)
- 2-3 cups of breadcrumbs

I used a little Mrs Dash garlic & herb seasoning and I made my own breadcrumbs using pretzel crackers. I mashed them with a hammer. No, really. It's cheaper than therapy and the results are delicious. I love using  a pretzel cracker hybrid because it makes for extra crunchiness. Plus they are already seasoned, so it makes life a little easier. Simply dip the mushroom in the egg mixture, roll it around in the crumb mixture and place it on the cookie sheet. Bake at 450F for 10-12 minutes.

TIP: wash and wipe your hands after every couple of mushrooms. This will keep things from getting too messy and potentially disastrous.

I like to think of myself as a lazy gourmet. It's really common for me to use boxed mixes (cakes, muffins, scones) and add my own little touches to them. That way they taste a little more.. well, gourmet.Usually it's as simple as adding vanilla extract, crushed nuts or cinnamon. I didn't have the energy to attempt this delicacy on the fourth of July, despite the fact that it would have been completely appropriate.. Oops. But I think cherry pie is appropriate for any time, holiday or not.

The only little tweak I made to this recipe was that I added about a quarter of a cup of graham cracker crumbs and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon to the pie crust. I have boxes and boxes of graham cracker crumbs. I like to add a scoop to pancake batter, too. Gives it more oompf

Then I used my trusty little star cookie cutter to make the top crust, and sprinkled it all with raw sugar. Yum!
