Fun craft we did at home

Just wanted to share a craft project we did at home with our daughter. We took clear pony beads and baked them in the oven at 375 degrees for 25 minutes in pie and muffin pans. They came out awesome and we will definitely be doing this craft again. These also did not destroy the pans which I was excited about.

What I'm Making for Thanksgiving

I'll be making one of my favorite recipes for our family's get-together this year: Apple Dumplings. These ones are made with crescent rolls and Mountain Dew, and are super easy to make. I have made these a few times over the past year and they always turn out amazing.

Mountain Dew Apple Dumplings

  • 6-8 apples, peeled, cored, cut up in big chunks
    2 cans crescent rolls
    1 stick butter
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 tbsp. cinnamon
    1 can Mt. Dew


    Grease a 13x9 pan.
    Wrap each apple chunk with a crescent roll and lay in the pan. Next melt the butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Mix and pour over the dumplings. Pour the can of Dew over the butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture and cover with foil. Bake till golden brown (around 30 minutes) at 350°F.

    These are absolutely delicious and easy so you should give them a try.
