Apple Dumplings (aka Apple Crack)

So occasionally, I make this dessert for my family. We call them Apple Crack because they are addicting!

2 Tart Apples
1 Prepackaged roll of "original" Crescent Rolls
1/2 Cup Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Vanilla Ice Cream

1. Peel the apples and cut into quarters. You will have 8 pieces.

2. Open Crescent Rolls and wrap dough of one crescent around 1 apple chunk. Some stretching is needed. But they should cover the apple easily.

3. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Place all dough covered apples in dish.

4. Next, melt 1/2 cup Butter and 1/2 Cup Sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil and heat until sugar is melted.

5. Then remove from heat and stir in 1/2 Cup Vanilla Ice Cream into the Butter/Sugar mixture. Stir until melted. The ice cream is the essential surprise ingredient.  

6. Pour mixture over dumplings and bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 40 minutes.

7. Dish yourself up before letting anyone else in the house know they are ready.

Serve with s scoop of vanilla ice cream... YUM!!!

My FNSI Results and a Winner!

Well, I started my FNSI during the day on Friday. My kids have been on winter break all week so it's been a revolving door of sleepovers and play dates around here all week. But on Friday I managed to finally spend some time organizing my sewing room. It was much needed.... but still not complete. 

Then Friday evening after dinner, I sat down and started crocheting. I made something off Pinterest finally!! These adorable mug cozy's. 

Click HERE for pattern. 

Aren't they cute?! I can't stop making them.

I also worked a little bit more on this slouchy hat for my neice.

Hopefully I will finish it this week. I didn't work on my duvet cover at all. But I have it all laid out and ready to sew. I just need to get busy.

And now for a winner. I promised you a giveaway.

I used and the winner is #55 - Karen from Kindred Quilts

Yay Karen!! I will be sending you a mug cozy (tell me what color/colors you like - I have many to choose from) along with a surprise charm pack.

Email me your address and I'll get your goodies in the mail to you. 

Thank you for joining everyone!!!

Delayed Friday Night Sew In Sign Up

My FNSI Funk. I have been a horrible blogger lately. I'm in a funk. I need to do a post about everything. I will do that soon.

But for now, it's time for the Friday Night Sew In! And since tonight is the last Friday of February.... Tonight is the night! I have been crafting and creating. And I WILL be sewing tonight. I'm working on a duvet cover for my teenager. I have it laid out and ready for construction. And it helps that it's snowing... So that makes it really easy to stay in where its warm and be creative.

Sorry for the short Signup time... But, to make up for it, I'm doing a giveaway this time! I will draw a winner on Sunday from the participants.
