Rhubard Dream Dessert

Yesterday we headed to a local farm and picked up some fresh Strawberries, Raspberries and Rhubarb. I have never baked with Rhubarb before and wanted to try. The lady at the farm handed me the recipe for this dessert and I thought it was so yummy specially warm with vanilla ice-cream on top! Here is the recipe!

1 cup sifted flour
5 Tablespoons powder sugar
1/2 cup soft butter or substitute
Mix together press into an 8"x8" pan. Cook at 350 for 15 min

2 beaten eggs
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoons if wanted salt
2 cups finely chopped rhubarb
Mix together and spoon onto per cooked base. Cook at 350 for 1 hour

Brownie Treat!

A local new bakery makes these brownie lollipops with sprinkles and my kids just love them! So Ethan has requested them to take to school for his birthday snack day! Instead of going to the bakery and buying them (I think that they are about $1.00/a piece) I made these cute treats in Ethan's class for $0.78 (and I was able to make 22 of them)! I already had the lollipop sticks, bags, tag punches and stamps! Hope the kids enjoy them this afternoon!

If you would like to know how I made these!
  • I used a boxed brownie mix Betty Crocker (I found this box for 0.78 at Winco Foods
  • Baked them in a small muffin tray for 20 mins @ 350
  • I let them cool for about an hour, the second batch I did was at 11:00 pm so to speed the cooling process up I placed them in the fridge for 10 minutes!
  • I then double boiled a bag of Chocolate Chips
  • Dipped the bottom of the muffin into the melted chocolate
  • Dipped in a bowl full of sprinkles.
  • I placed them in the fridge over night
  • Next morning placed the lollipop sticks in them (I used Wilton Lollipop sticks)
  • Placed them in the treat bags. (I used the 4"x6" treat bags found @ Michael's)
  • Added the cute tag that I stamped and used a twist tie to close it!

Simple and inexpensive!

Magnetic Board & Magnets

I made two of these to give to my daughters Pre-School Teachers!
I cut out Scrap-book paper to fit the size of the metal sheet. I then placed modge-podge on the metal and adhered my scrapbook paper. I used Stickers that I had that coordinated with the paper and then added the ribbon handle. The magnets where made with marbles, a 1" circle punch, stickers and a hot glue gun! Super fast, super simple and Cute!
