- I can’t get enough of Jessie Webster’s home. It has so many of the little ethnic/boho/artsy touches I love.
- This t-shirt plant hanger diy. Yup, I feel some crafting coming on.
- This chandelier diy is gorg. But, I’m thinking this is way over my head:)
- Plants, plants, plants. I need more. I love how Rachel took a small, underutilized corner and made it beautiful.
In other news, recall my Living Room Refresh moodboard? Brickyard Buffalo has those super fun chalkboard pods from Sea and Asters on sale right now! Go grab one, or two, or three!
Just an FYI, you can get a very similar rug to the West Elm Souk wool rug (in Jessie Webster’s living room), right here, at Overstock, for less.
I may have got on the bandwagon, but this app is so much fun! If you want to check me out on instagram-mylittleluvs.
And a thank you to Lauren, over at A Lovely Lark, for the mention:) She is so sweet!
I am not the best cook *gasp*. There, I said it. That talent lies with my little sister, Jacqueline, or as we call her around here, Jac. She knows I like to keep things fairly simple, and if I can make it, so can you! We thought we would start off with a yummy dish for Mother’s Day, a turkey bacon and broccoli quiche. This dish is best made the day before, served cold, or room temperature. So, you could definitely plan ahead with this one!
This recipe will make 4 pie crusts.
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter (cut into pea sized chunks for mixing)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp water (add more as needed to = 1/2 cups)
- Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and pea sized chunks of butter.
- Mix together egg and apple cider vinegar. Add water.
- Gradually add wet ingredients to dry. Add more water as needed.
- Divide into 4 equal balls.
- Spray a 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray. Roll out pie dough and fit into dish. Trim any overhang. Freeze pie crust for about 30 minutes.
- Heat oven to 350. Line the pie crust with parchment and fill with either beans or rice, as an inexpensive pie weight.
- Bake for 20 minutes. Remove pie weight and parchment. Cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, just until starting to brown. Let cool while preparing the filling.
- 6 strips of turkey bacon, cooked
- Roughly 1/2 cup onion, cooked
- Roughly 3/4 cup broccoli, cooked
- 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup cream
- 1 tsp salt
- Sprinkle half of cheese along the bottom of the pie crust. Layer cooked broccoli, onion, and turkey bacon. Top with remaining cheese.
2. Whisk together eggs, milk, cream, and salt. Pour into pie pan, over the other ingredients. Sprinkle with fresh pepper.
3. Bake at 350 for about 30 to 40 minutes. You want the edges to be set, but the middle to jiggle a little. Cool.
Perfectly creamy, and just a little smokiness from the turkey bacon. It was delicious! Thank you little sister, as always♥♥♥♥:)
Part one of my little Spring Refresh series- the Living Room. I would like to get things accessorized and feel more finished. This is a wish list of sorts for my glam/earthy vibe. Who doesn’t love a kantha quilt and a Char-Bea pillow, hmmm?
Now that the weather is getting nicer, I want new sandals! Loving all the two-tone wedges out there right now. And I feel that they are a little more comfortable than heels-a good mommy shoe:)
Yay! Spring has finally come to Western Washington, so it’s time to freshen things up a bit. I figure if I make some goals, and actually write them down, a few should get accomplished!
- Reorganize/edit my Pinterest boards. This needed to happen, like, yesterday.
- Purge. Go through all the closets and drawers.
- Finish new patterns, and get some dollies in the store.
- Accessorize. Yeah, I have some pillows and art, but things never feel close to being finished. I am always worried more about function, and with a toddler around, practicality.
- Redo Abram’s room. Little guy is now 2 1/2. A little too big for a nursery, a little too small for a big boy room. Maybe an ‘in between’ room?
Well, 5 is good for now! I will keep y’all updated:)
