My Pumpkin Treats!

I made this pumpkin bread! it was delicious! We use einkorn flour, organic xylitol sugar, organic egg and cow share organic milk! All of the ingredients are mostly organic, its healthier than any regular flour and sugar. That's more my family like it! 

My Pumpkin Cookie! I put chocolate kisses in it and cut it into little pieces, it was delicious!

My muffin turns out really big, It looks like a cookie on the top and muffin in the bottom. Lolz :-) but it doesn't matter, my kids and hubby loves it!

a 5 year old drawing

This is a drawing of my 5 year old little girl. She gave it to me last night and it really touch my heart. She spell mammy instead of mommy but that was okay. I love the happy family that she made. It was beautiful and the sun is happy too! Isn't that sweet? We love our little girl and for us, she is very precious and we are so proud of her. :-)

a health insurance quote

A friend of mine from NC was so worry about her health insurance. I am not sure if she’s happy on her insurance or maybe the insurance company just giving her problem. Or maybe she is paying so much and not get enough coverage to it. She thought about getting a new one but she never find one that she really like. She ask some of her family and friends too. She ask me one time what type of health insurance we have and I told her that my husband is the one who has the health insurance from his employer and that I got covered with it too together with our two children. They took it out from his paycheck every month but we never had problem with our health insurance. So, what I did, I told her to give it a try a health insurance quote and maybe she will find the one she’s looking for. Getting a quote is a good idea to find out which insurance that is right for you and affordable. So will see, hopefully she will find the health insurance that she is happy and satisfied with.

Pumpkin Night

Today, I received a big huge pumpkin from one of our friend. She got 2 huge pumpkin at their house and she doesn't know what to do with it and she doesn't want to waste it. So she gave me one and this is what it looks like now.

I cut a big square in it and use it for tonight. I did a lot of baking today! That's a lot of work! I made a pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffin and a pumpkin chocolate cookies! Yummy! We use einkorn flour and organic sugar. It's more safer than the regular flour and regular sugar because they are GMOs, better to be safe than to regret it later. :-)

Dana's Horse Hat

She is such a silly girl. She love her new horse hat. We bought that hat when we had breakfast at Organic Feddler at Del Norte couple weeks ago when my mother in law and brother in law come visit us here for a week. She always wear it all the time. Sometimes, she change it once in a while. She had a lot of different kinds of hat, from owl, cat, warm hat and winter hat in different colors. She never get enough hats, lolz :-) 

Astronaut Deer - kids project

Well, since we don't do thanksgiving, my son's school are doing a turkey project for thanksgiving and instead of a Turkey dressing up, my son's teacher decided to give him a deer to dress up as their project. He wanted to dress up his deer as an Astronaut and we make a space background with moon and stars. It turn out pretty good! We use aluminum foil for the clothing and add a little design to his clothes using glitter glue. Now, his astronaut deer is ready to be hang outside their classroom at the board and let everybody see it. Its another fun project for my kidos. :-)

Look how happy she is carrying her castle! She is a proud girl! She's proud on her hardwork castle that we made together! :-)

Yummy cheesecake!

This is the cheesecake we made yesterday, we didn't bought enough pie crust for the cheesecake, so we end up making cheesecake muffins! Kids love it and it taste really good even without the crust! Great for snack and a little tiny desert after lunch and dinner. We got the recipe online and we love the sour cream cheesecake recipe from Its easy to make, all you have to do is buy this ingredients:
ready made cheesecake pie crust (graham or oreo crust)
You can also make your own pie crust with 1 1/2 cups graham crackers and 1/2 cup melted butter

1 cup sour cream
Combine all the sugar, cream cheese, vanilla and sour cream. Beat at medium speed around 5 minutes. Add the egg one in a time then keep beating and mixing. When it reach the thickness and creamy you like. Pour it in a ready made pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30minutes.

For toppings: Mix sour cream and 3 tbs. of sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla in a small bowl. Pour on top of the slightly cooled cheesecake and bake for another 10mins at 350 degrees. Let it chill for a little while and serve! Enjoy!
