We know that right now there’s a good chance many of you are in the thick of planning the classroom harvest party, finding costumes for Halloween, and hanging bats from your porch ceiling.  Keep up the good work, festive friends!  Pin this post and save it for November first, after your sugar high is over, when you need an easy-peasy way to decorate until Christmas.

Give-Thanks-free-printable-hint

In America, we celebrate our day of Thanksgiving in November.  Whether you celebrate an American Thanksgiving or not, there’s something about the bounty of a Fall harvest that makes you stop and think of your blessings.  That’s why this month, we wanted to share a printable that would reflect how grateful we are for all we’ve been given.  It’s a beautiful reminder from a verse of scripture:

“In all things give thanks.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18

We’re offering this as a free printable to you.  It’s sized to fit a 8×10 frame.

Give-Thanks-Free-Printable-yellow

You might consider printing out several of these to frame and give as gifts to friends as a holiday gift.  Do it now and you can cross that off your list long before December!

Give-Thanks-Free-9

This printable would make a great hostess gift, too.  Wrap up a warm loaf of pumpkin bread for your hosts to enjoy, too.  (By the way, did you see this recipe for pumpkin pull-apart bread?  We highly recommend it!)

Give-Thanks-Free-8

Or, frame it for yourself and use it as part of a centerpiece for your Thanksgiving buffet table.

Give-Thanks-Free-5

Just to give you options….we have this verse available for printing in two different colors, white and sepia.  The white background looks great in rooms with brighter colors.  The sepia has a warmer, more vintage feel.  Both are lovely!

Apple Pie Caramel Apples http://www.madefrompinterest.net/2014/10/apple-pie-caramel-apples/ http://www.madefrompinterest.net/2014/10/apple-pie-caramel-apples/#respond Tue, 21 Oct 2014 07:00:45 +0000 http://www.madefrompinterest.net/?p=15876 Two weeks ago,  I got to travel with my dear hubby on a business trip to Hawaii.  While we were there we walked   around  in shorts and flip flops in 90 degree weather knowing that the  temperature back home was in the low 40’s.  I know…hard to take, right?

Two weeks ago,  I got to travel with my dear hubby on a business trip to Hawaii.  While we were there we walked   around  in shorts and flip flops in 90 degree weather knowing that the  temperature back home was in the low 40’s.  I know…hard to take, right?

One of the treats that we like to get over there is shave ice.  And don’t call it shaved (with a “d”) ice.  You’ll be showing your touristiness!  (I like to make up my own words.) We made a beeline to Matsumoto’s and had our shave ice but normally whenever I go anywhere the treat that I usually get is a caramel apple.

Super easy Apple Pie Caramel Apple. They truly taste like an Apple Pie!  Also includes tips for making the perfect Caramel Apple

No matter where we are, if they have caramel apples, I will get one.  I even have my kids conditioned to watch out for me.  Often, before I even see them, one of them will exclaim…”Hey Mom!!  There’s a caramel apple!”

Have I told you how much I love my kids?

So imagine my happiness when I pinned this Apple Pie Caramel Apples from Miss CandiQuik.  It was so easy and the results were professional. (Being the professional caramel apple snob that I am!)

So let’s get cookin’!  Here is what you will need:

Parchment or wax paper

Lollipop sticks (or popsicle sticks)
12 tart, green apples, I used Granny Smith’s
Peter’s Caramel (about a 1/3 to 1/2 of a block- see post) or 2 (11 oz.) bag Kraft Caramel Bits (or caramels)
Vanilla Candy Melts
Cinnamon-sugar, for sprinkling. Mix together cinnamon with some sugar to your liking. Make sure you don’t go too heavy on the cinnamon though.  It really shows up brown on the white chocolate.

Instructions:  Wash and dry your apples really well. Make sure that there is no remaining water on them.  Remove stems and then insert lollipop or popsicle sticks. Place apples on parchment or wax paper.

DSC_0510

In a deep microwave safe bowl, cut some caramel off of your block and place in your bowl.  Microwave until your caramel is melted.  Every microwave has different cooking temperatures so just watch closely while melting.  I use Peter’s Caramel because it so easy and it can be found in kitchen stores or bought on Amazon.com. Plus you don’t have to unwrap a bajillion wrappers!   Here is what it looks like:

DSC_0521-2

When your caramel is ready, dip your apple into the caramel and then turn to coat.

DSC_0513

Allow as much caramel as possible to drip back into your bowl.

DSC_0518

Here is a great tip!  When the dripping has stopped, take a knife and scrape the caramel from off the bottom of the apple.  This will cut down on the “pooling” of caramel at the bottom when you set your apple down.

DSC_0524

DSC_0532

See the one on the left?  Muy bueno!  The one on on the right?  Not so much muy  bueno!  Of course, if your caramel just HAPPENS to pool at the bottom, that just means more caramel for you to eat, right?  Yumm!!  If you need more caramel, then just melt some more.  It’s hard to determine exactly how much stays on each apple and how much you will need.

Let your apples cool.  In  separate deep microwave safe bowl, melt two cups of your Vanilla Candy Melts.  I used Guittard’s Vanilla Melts.  They are so wonderfully creamy!

DSC_0536-2

Dip your caramel coated apples into the melted vanilla melts making sure you don’t dip all the way to the top of where the caramel is.  It looks nice to see a little apple, then caramel and then the white candy melts.   Let as much as possible drip back into your bowl and then with a clean knife, scrap the excess chocolate off the bottom of the apple and set back on your parchment paper.  And just like the caramel, if you need to melt some more vanilla melts, then just melt some more to cover all of your apples.

While the vanilla coating is still wet, sprinkle some of your cinnamon sugar mixture all over the vanilla coating.

DSC_0559-2

Let the apples cool and then dig in!  It is also nice to take a knife and slice them up for easier eating.  And I promise, these really do taste like an Apple Pie!  It  might just become YOUR new favorite treat!

Kirigami Spider Webs for Halloween are easy to make. Quick too!

Maybe it’s because I am a fan of Charlotte’s Web, but I don’t hate spiders. I don’t love them either. This summer I volunteered at a camp for girls. The tents were huge military type tents on wooden platforms. In order to get the girls to even THINK about going to sleep, each night we did a spider check in the tents. We came along with our fearsome broom and swept those spiders away. We were brave. You should be so proud of me.Kirigami Spider Webs for Halloween - So easy to make! Great for garland, gifts and decorations!

Even though I don’t want a spider on me, or near me, I appreciate spiders. They eat the other yucky bugs. But really, it is their webs that are so fascinating. Fragile, strong and no one like the other. These Kirigami Spider Webs for Halloween are so easy and fun to make. I didn’t know what Kirigami was until I saw this pin from Omiyage Blogs. Kirigami is like Origami in that it requires folding of paper, but Kiri means cut picture. Remember making paper snowflakes? Did you know you were doing Kirigami? I didn’t!

You can make your Kirigami Spider Webs for Halloween this year from any paper and in any size. The paper just needs to be perfectly square. I used origami paper that was 7″ X 7″.

Kirigami Spider Web Tute 1-4To begin, fold your square into a triangle, matching tips, and creasing the fold well. Now take the two ends and match them to each other to create a smaller triangle. With the tip pointing down, take the two points on the sides and fold the triangle into thirds. This takes a little practice, but don’t worry! It doesn’t have to be EXACTLY perfect, close enough will do. You will have a long triangle tip with two triangles poking out at the top. Cut off those two triangles. Kirigami Spider Webs Tute 5-8Next cut the top into an inverted curve. Following that cut, continue cutting the triangle into strips, stopping just short of the fold. Don’t cut all the way through! Continue cutting until you reach a small triangle at the bottom. Do not snip off the triangle yet! Beginning at the top, fold back every other strip of the triangle. Once you are sure you have the right amount of strips, then you can either cut another strip if you need one, or cut of off the bottom tip of the triangle if you have the right number. Cut the strips as close to their base as possible. Then the magic! Kirigami Spider Web unfoldUnfold your spider web! To get mine to lay flat, I put them in between two large, heavy binders for about an hour. You could also iron them on low very lightly.

These Kirigami Spider Webs for Halloween are great to sting into garland, decorate a table, or tape to the wall with some plastic spiders! Get creative and tell us what you do with yours!

Here are a few other Halloween ideas to try:

If you are a foodie who loves to cook then you know how important it is to have excellent cooking knives. I’ve had the opportunity the last fews years to be in the kitchen as one of several “cooks” at our church’s girls camp. Cooking for 150 to 200 hungry teenage girls is quite the experience! If for any reason you are under the impression that teenage girls eat less than teenage boys let me be the first to say you are wrong. These lovely young ladies put down some serious food on a daily basis!

 My first year in the kitchen I made the mistake of assuming that the camp kitchen provided adequate cooking knives, boy was I WRONG! The knives provided were old, inexpensive and dull. The camp location is remote, leaving to grab a set of knives from home wasn’t an option. Needless to say it was a long week. The following years I never left for girls camp without my own set of sharpened quality knives! Never again will I have to cut 100 tomatoes with a dull knife :)

Asian Beef & Hammer Stahl Giveaway
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • Asian Sauce Homemade
  • ½ cup tamari (or low-sodium soy sauce)
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • Beef
  • 10 oz snow peas
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 oz mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 1 pound beef, thinly sliced (sirloin steak strips, flank steak, or any other steak)
  • 2 cups cooked rice
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl whisk all sauce ingredients well and set aside.
  2. In a medium pan bring water to a boil, add snow peas and boil them for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Use a large skillet heat until hot add 2 tablespoons olive oil - it should sizzle. Immediately add thinly sliced mushrooms - cook them on high heat, turning occasionally, until they brown nicely. Salt them midway, a little bit (not too much salt, as you will be adding tamari sauce later). Remove mushrooms place them in a bowl.
  4. In the same skillet, on high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, which will sizzle right away. Immediately add thinly sliced meat. You might want to do this in 2 batches, because you will want each slice of meat to touch the bottom of the skillet and for meat slices not to be crowded. This will ensure that meat will brown on high heat. Cook meat on one side until it browns nicely. Turn over all meat slices to the opposite side, and cook more, on high heat, until all slices brown nicely. Remove this batch and place it in a bowl. Add a second batch of meat, and repeat.
  5. Return all of the cooked meat back to the skillet. Add the snow peas and cooked mushrooms, then the sauce. On high heat - stir everything to combine, for about 1 minute. Turn off heat. Cover the skillet with a lid.
  6. Serve over rice or noodles.

We are delighted to have Carole from My Kitchen Escapades return to share her show stopping Italian Chicken Bake!

 

Last Saturday at 3:30 in the morning, I received the following text from my oldest son, who is in his freshman year at BYU:

“Hey Mom! We got bored and decided to dye my hair.”

IMG_1164Well….a million possible responses ran through my head at that ridiculous hour, but I did the wise thing by rolling over, muttering “just perfect” under my breath, and going back to sleep. If he wasn’t 1200 miles away, I would have smacked him up side that red head.

I finally responded to his text the next morning, after I had attended church. I wanted to be in the proper Christian mind-frame :)

Italian Chicken Bake - is so flavorful and makes a fab pan sauce that you can serve over pasta or rice. There are a TON of great Italian goodies in the dish, along with the moist and tender chicken.

My newly styled son would have despised this chicken as much as I despise his hair. You see, my favorite BYU student can not stand artichokes, so I guess that gives us a second good reason for him to be 1200 miles away from home this week :)

All the rest of the Jones family (with their normal colored hair), thoroughly loved my latest chicken bake creation! It is so flavorful and makes a fab pan sauce that you can serve over pasta or rice. I love that there are a TON of great Italian goodies in the dish, along with the moist and tender chicken. No skimping on the extras in this recipe!

I have some other killer chicken bakes over on My Kitchen Escapades, so if this Italian Chicken Bake is right up your alley, be sure to click on the pictures below to see some of my other favorites!

 

Italian Chicken Bake
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Tb oil
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ C chicken broth
  • 1 package Good Seasons Zesty Italian dressing mix
  • 14 ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
  • 4 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 ounces fresh spinach
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Trim the chicken breasts and use your hand to flatten out the thick end of the breast a bit. Lay them in a 9x13 baking pan that has been lightly greased.
  2. In a skillet, heat the oil over high heat and then add the onions and mushrooms. Cook until they are softened.
  3. In a large microwave safe bowl, place the cream cheese and chicken broth. Microwave on high for 1½ minutes and then use a whisk to blend completely. Add the dressing mix, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Mix well. Mix in the cooked onions and mushrooms, along with the artichokes, tomatoes and spinach.
  4. Pour the mixture over the chicken and bake for 35-40 minutes, until the chicken is firm. Add the cheese over the top and place under the broiler to brown the cheese.

Hi, it’s Judy from I’m Bored Let’s Go. I’m so excited to be posting here today at MFP for the first time. Thank you Debbie, Tracy and Sherri for inviting me!

Candy Corn Oreo TrufflesIt’s getting close to Halloween and I have a simple homemade treat to share with you today. These cookie truffles would be great to take to a Halloween party if you’re looking for something quick, simple and homemade to take along.

This year I’m living in an apartment building and not anticipating any trick or treaters. This makes me a little sad. I really love seeing all the kiddos dressed up and excited for the impending sugar high they will be on for the next several days. I don’t know about you but I always seem to buy way too much candy. I tell ya, those last few groups of trick or treaters that come by my house are the luckiest ones…they get the candy bowl dumped in their bag so I won’t eat it all the next day! This year I thought I’d make some treats to share with the staff at the apartment building I live in. They’re always so pleasant and always eager and willing to taste test whatever I bring down to them.

I came across a pin for Candy Corn Oreo Truffles from Shugary Sweets that sounded intriguing so I thought I’d give it a try. Have you ever had cookie truffles before? This was my first time I had one…or made them. They’re seriously simple to make, only 3 ingredients (not counting the candy decoration). I think kids would have a ball helping out in the kitchen with these!

Candy-Corn-Oreo-TrufflesBasically all you do is grind up Oreo cookies into fine crumbs, blend them with some cream cheese and roll them into little balls. Once chilled, they get a dunking in melted white chocolate, decorated with a candy corn or some sprinkles and that’s it. Doesn’t get much easier than that does it?

These little balls are pretty sweet! The inside kind of reminds me of cookie dough (I guess that would make sense since they’re made from cookies). I was unable to find Candy Corn flavored Oreos so I used the golden Oreos and added a little orange food coloring to the mix, then topped them off with candy corn and chocolate sprinkles. I imagine with all the different flavors of Oreo cookies that are available throughout the year, you’d be able to make quite a variety of cookie truffles for any occasion. A quick google search showed an assortment of limited edition flavors like Pumpkin Spice (that would be delicious this time of year), Marshmallow Crispy, Birthday Cake and so on. I think I’ll try Chocolate Mint next!

CandyCornOreoTrufflesThanks again MFP for allowing me to contribute to your site this month. See you next month!

All the best,

Judy @ I’m Bored Let’s Go

It seems like so often these days I see great ideas and pin them, but never get around to coming back to them. I’m always creating, just finding inspiration through my supplies. So I’m so glad to be contributing at Made From Pinterest because it’s getting me excited about some of the ideas I had already forgotten about.

I think Thanksgiving is often forgotten, but it’s my favorite holiday of the year. I love so much about it, including the reminder to be grateful for all the things we enjoy. As my extended family grows and children are added, we’re gathering less at Christmas which makes Thanksgiving even more special to me. But we don’t have a lot of Thanksgiving-specific decor so I love this Give Thanks board from the lovely Angela at Handmade in the Heartland. She actually made a garland, pillow, and board (and the pillow is what drew me in), but the board is what I’ve chosen to make today.

I started with a recipe book holder and followed Angela’s instructions. First a stain (I used some awesome Minwax stain wipes for this part) then I added my vinyl which I cut using an electronic cutter. I finished it off with a rough coat of Americana Chalky Paint, and after drying and sanding, put on a wax sealer.

It was a really fun project to do, and I’m so glad I gave it a try. It will be perfect for holding the recipes I’ll use for our Thanksgiving feast, and will remind me to be grateful for the bounty we enjoy as a family.

Do you ever get a craving for chips and salsa?  There are times when my hubby will ask what I am in the mood for and nothing will hit the spot except some salty chips with a great salsa.  If you’re the same as me, then have I got a salsa for you!

Mom's Best Salsa.  Partly made with a blender, this is a mix between chunky and a puree!

We call this Mom’s Best Salsa because if our kids come over to visit and they open the fridge and see a jar of it inside, inevitably they will exclaim, “Mom!! You made salsa!”  And then after rummaging up some tortilla chips, while stuffing their mouths, they will mumble, “Seriously mom, you make the BEST salsa!”

So there you have it.  My recipe for Mom’s Best Salsa.

Mom's Best Salsa.  Part of it is made in the blender.  So easy!

Recipe type: Mexican
Ingredients
  • 20 oz can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 Serrano or Jalapeno chile cut into slices. ( I usually use Serrano)
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • ¼ bunch largely chopped cilantro (more if desired)
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bunch of green onions, chopped
  • 1 6 oz can of green chiles
Instructions
  1. In a blender, blend serrano chile, garlic salt, green chiles, stewed tomatoes and 1½ of the tomatoes. NOTE: Start with ⅓ of the serrano chile and if you want it spicier, add a little more. DO NOT put the whole chile in at the beginning! Start mild and add as you go.
  2. Add chopped green onions, the remaining 1½ finely chopped tomatoes and the ¼ bunch chopped cilantro.
  3. I usually pour mine into a quart and pint mason jar. This tastes great right away but is also wonderful for days afterward after the different tastes have time to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve then dig out the tortilla chips!
  4. This is also great on any kind of mexican food!
