Here are some results of exploring the web lately:
Apple Pound Cake from Christy Jordan’s Southern Plate–If you want to find a new recipe, it’s hard to go wrong with something from Christy Jordan. I made this apple pound cake for a potluck dinner, and it was wonderful. I followed the cake recipe exactly as written, but I did make a brown sugar glaze to put on it instead of powdered sugar (1 cup brown sugar, 4 tablespoons margarine, 2 tablespoons milk, stir together over medium heat and boil for about 3 minutes). If you like apple desserts, this cake is definitely worth your time!
Teach Your Child How to Write a Haiku at Imagination Soup came in handy in our homeschool this week. We are doing a poetry unit that I purchased from CurrClick called The Lyrics of Our Soul: Poetry Fun.
Finally, take a look at Simple Stitches, an etsy shop with great hand crocheted items. There are hats, blankets, dishcloths, scarves, hair clips, baby shoes, and more. I can vouch for the good quality of the products and the honesty of the shop owner–after all, she is my sister-in-law and my kids love the hats she made for them! Right now there is a coupon code posted, as well as some items in her clearance section, so you can get a good deal!
Have a wonderful week!
