' Little kitchen - Rocky Road!

Little kitchen recipe for making your own Rocky Road candies!

Hello little chefs!!!

What about some fun and easy candy today? Yes?! Great!!

Let´s make some Rocky Road candy!





Rocky Road Candy

We will need:

500g of chocolate (we usually take 400g milk chocolate and 100g dark chocolate)
50g of coconut fat
75g of cookies, broken into smaller pieces
75g of almonds (or any other nuts you like - if you dont like nuts in your Rocky Road at all simply leave them out and put more cookie bits in instead or dried fruit or pretzel bits)
150g of mini marshmallows

Melt the chocolate together with the coconut fat over a water bath over low heat. Once its melted and smooth let it cool so it will be only lukewarm.
Mix in the cookie bits, nuts and marshmallows and stir. 
Line a small baking tray with baking paper (mommy will certainly give you a hand here!) and pour in the chocolate mixture. Once it is fully cooled pop it into the fridge so it will harden even quicker! Once it is cool and hardened you can cut it into pieces.






Enjoy!!!

50 States sew-along!

Hello everyone!!!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and that the week ahead is treating you well! 

See that little star peeking out in the background of the photo above? Shall we have a closer look?


If you love the USA as much as we do you will recognize the first in a series of 50 stars. This one is for Delaware that got a diamond for a state sign! My sweet friend Mollie is running a sew-and-stitch-along to cover all 50 states of the USA. Each state will have the cutest ever embroidery and you can chose to sew all your stars into a quilt or several other projects she´s going to show along the way! I provided her with templates to make wonky stars so make sure to hop over to her blog and read all about the sew-along right here!

' Little kitchen egg noodles

Little kitchen recipe for making egg noodles!

Hello little chefs!

Today we want to show you one of our favorite ever dishes. We call them egg noddles or ham noodles. Everytime we make them they remind me so much of when I was Jamie´s age. My mom used to make them a lot as they were usually the dish I requested when I got asked what I wanted for lunch or dinner.


Egg noodles

We will need:

bacon, ham, any other sausage
some onion cut into rings (as much as you like)
pasta
salt, pepper and nutmeg
fresh parsley
eggs
butter


I cant really give you any proper measurements as this depends on how much ham, onion and eggs you like with your noodles. Some like more, some prefer less. Also it depends for how many people you prepare this. 
Anyway, the basic recipe goes like this:

Heat up some butter over medium heat in a saucepan and fry the bacon if you are using it, once it is slightly crispy add the ham or sausage and the onion rings. If you dont want to use bacon at all simply fry the ham/sausage bits together with the onion rings.


Whilst frying the bacon, ham and onion you can heat up a pot of lightly salted water and cook your pasta. Once it´s cooked put it in a sieve to drain.

Take a small cup and mix the eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg. 



Add the cooked pasta into the saucepan with the bacon, ham and onion. Give it a stir and reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the egg mixture and keep stirring until it scrambles up nicely. Last but not least add the chopped parsley.


I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Have an awesome weekend!!!

' Fabric hoarder

Super lovely bag and goodies from Sarah!

Hello everyone!!!

So...as you already know...I am a fabric hoarder...and I am lucky enough to have a daughter who is equally hoarding fabric...just like her mommy lol (every time we go to a quilt store she will pick up fabric and that is stored away in a box for when the perfect project will come up as she keeps pointing out!). I fell heavily in love when I first saw Sarah´s amazing fabric hoarder art print. I can tell you - if you see it in person it is even more amazing! I love it! Very!


Not only did Sarah send along the amazing art print but also surprised us with the most perfect tote bag ever made! (this will hold a big lot of fabric in the very near future I am sure!).



She also sent us some fabric from her amazing new line called "August" that´s just hitting the stores in the states! It is one of the loveliest fabrics ever! Naturally I already ordered some...lots...more lol and cant wait for it to arrive here!


And now we will go and fill that bag - hooray! lol

Hello sweet little chefs!

Today we got a recipe for super easy pizza! Jamie and I discovered that you can make pizza with pretty much anything you want. We made pancake pizza, bread pizza, fruit pizza...and also pizza with puff pastry...which turned out SO yummy that we would love to share the recipe with you!



Find your printable recipe coloring sheet here!

Puff Pastry Pizza

Ingredients:

puff pastry
cream cheese
toppings
salt, pepper and herbs

Simply line a baking tray with baking paper and put your puff pastry on the baking paper. Spread cream cheese all over the pastry. You can either use herbed or flavored cream cheese, plain one or plain one that you season with salt and pepper and dried herbs. This is totally up to you!




As far as toppings go - the sky is the limit lol put on top whatever you fancy. We love onion rings, sausage or bacon and tomatoes, some fresh herbs (parsley and rosemary are our favorites) as well as cheese to finish it off. 

Once you are done bake the pizzas at 175°C for 25 minutes. Enjoy!!!



Have a beautiful summer weekend!!!
