{Pin}tastic Friday- Must have Maxi Dress

I found this pin a few weeks ago and finally got the time to make one for my Little Miss.  Simple Simon & Co. Made this adorable Maxi dress from a T-shirt and Knit fabric. 
So I thought I would give it a try.  My Little Miss has been begging me for a Zebra Dress. So with a little zebra print and a cute hot pink shirt I went to town to make one of these with a twist. Here is my take on the Must have Summer Maxi.

 I added a flower to the front and a little clip in the back to take it in.  I made this with a size 5 t shirt and it was a little big.  So I added a little length to let her grow. She loved wearing it to church and wants to wear it all the time.  I make have to make a few more to get us through the summer.
The best part about this dress.  It took me 30 minutes to make.  {Bonus} Perfect for summer! Now go make a few for your little miss!

{Pin}tastic Friday- Ham & Cheese Sliders

Do you love to cook? Bake?  I do.  I love to bake anything. Especially desserts.  In the winter I love to make soups with fresh baked wheat bread.  I love to make yummy food but in the summer I want fast and easy. (As little effort as possible.)  I found my next little find at the Girl Who Ate Anything. Don't you just love the name.  It sounds so Brave! (I myself are not so adventurous) I worried at first about this little dish because I do not like mustard.  But I will know eat the mustard on these yummy little sandwiches. 
These little babies are tasty on a hot summers day. I popped them  in my toaster oven for a few minutes add a salad on the side and voila dinner is served.   My kids even liked them. Definitely a dish we will keep in the family cook book.(I have a home made cook book of favorite family recipes.  Some day my kiddos will ask to take a copy to college or something.  I keep family favorite recipes from when I was a kid and add new ones every know and then.) Some day I will share. Until then.  Check this one out over at the Girl Who Ate Anything and stay a while she has some wonderful recipes you can try with your own family. 

Please pin from the source.  She has been working hard for great recipes she totally deserves the credit.

{Pin} tastic Friday- Bar Sugar Cookies

 Yeah I am so excited.  I became a dot.com.  Want to learn how.  It's super easy. (I found it on the SNAP confrence website) I have been off the Grid in Yellowstone National Park with my kiddos and haven't had a chance to tell you all.  Fun, fun, fun If you haven't ever been to Yellowstone it is totally worth it.  Take your family!!

Now on to {Pin}tastic Friday. I found this Little beauty on Pintrest one day. I decided to give them a try for my son's baptism.  We had a lot of people coming and I needed to have less work more food.  So I busted these babies out. 
I rarely make sugar cookies.  I have never found a recipe I just love.  I also don't love rolling and cutting and refrigerating.  Just to much work.  But these lovelies or simple to make and yummy to eat.  My mind says yum keep eating my body says those jeans are not going to fit anymore.

{Pin}tastic Friday - Carmelitas

Happy {Pin}tastic Friday!  Carmelita's are today's delicious food is one that I have loved for over a year now.  They are so delicious.  I made them for a friend when she had a baby.  I took them to the hospital and told her to hoard them.  They are to good to share with little kids.  So she took my advice and ate them all in the night. (If you are not aware, a new Mom is starving for days after delivering a baby. I would eat anything I could get my hands on.  My request was KFC biscuits.  I could eat a dozen every night after delivering my kiddos.Yummy!!)   Afterwards she asked for the recipe.

I tell ya these beauties are Ooey, Gooey, YUM. And so easy to make. You will want the pan for yourself.

I found the recipe at Lulu the Baker. Go take a look at her blog.  She has lots of yummy things to eat. She doesn't disappoint.


You won't be sorry you made these.  And neither will your neighbors if you share.  
Head over and see what else I am Pinning. Lots of fun finds and food to make.  Follow me if you like.

{Pin}Tastic Friday - Monterey Chicken

Its {Pin}tastic Friday.  I love Fridays.  The weekend is here.  I get to spend time with my family and sometimes get a little time to myself, in my craft room.  I found this pin through a friend.  And I am sure glad I did.  It is delicious.  Every person in my family loves it.  And that is saying something.  All of my kids are picky.  There are very few things they agree on.  This is one of them.  The first time I made it I served it over a bed of spinach.  Talk about yummy.  It was like a healthy salad.  The second time I made garlic mashed potatoes.  The kids prefered the potatoes.  Who wouldn't.  Either way it is a {Pin}tastic dinner especially for summer.  I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.
The original source for this recipe is over at All Things Simple.  Lots of goodies over there check them out sometime. 
And noe, what you have been waiting for...... Monterey Chicken!

MONTEREY CHICKEN4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c. bar-b-que sauce ( I use Bull's Eye)
1/4 c. real bacon bits
1 c. colby and jack cheese, shredded
1 14 oz. can Rotel tomatoes, drained (canned with green chilies added)
sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound out chicken breasts to flatten. Season with pepper. Grill chicken until no long pink (we used our George Foreman grill) and place on baking sheet covered with foil. Top each chicken breast with one tablespoon bar-b-que sauce, 1/4 c. cheese, 1/4 c. tomatoes, green onions and one tablespoon of bacon bits. Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).
This is Kim's reciped from her site.  I used a different BBQ sauce.  All the rest is the same.

{Pin}tastic Friday - Homemade Pizza Dough

I have decided to start a new post every Friday.  {Pin}tastic Friday.  I am going to share all of the things I pin and try out.  There are som many great things on Pintrest. We all do it.  It is a crazy addiction I have.  I check out Pintrest most every day.  I love to try new things.  Especially recipes.  Who needs a cookbook when you have pintrest.

So each Friday I am going to share my recipes that are FTF (Free Time Frolics) approved!

For my first {Pin}tastic pin, head on over to Six Sister's Stuff.  It is for their Homemade Pizza dough. This is truly the best Dough EVER. Better than store bought, box mix are any other recipe you may have.  My kids don't even want to buy pizza anymore.  They want home made.   Its quick and easy to make. Each kid gets a section of Pizza for there toppings and everyone is happy.  I even used it for breadsticks.  They were a hit. Sorry Pizza Hut, Little Ceasars and Dominos.  There is a new recipe in town.  I would totally recommend this recipe. It is full proof!
