A recipe and a “green” craft!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! We had a nice visit with my mom and step-dad (and their dogs!) and had a great little birthday party for Carter yesterday…more on that this week!

I saw this tutorial over at Living with Punks and thought it was such a great idea to be crafty and “Green” all at the same time! Here is a YUMMY recipe for Green Chile Cornbread and pics of the tin can pin cushion I made from the green chili can!

I gave it to my mom for her birthday!

Green Chile Cornbread


(2) 8 oz pkgs of Jiffy cornbread mix

(1) 8 1/4 oz can cream style corn

(1) 4 1/2 oz can chopped green chiles, drained

1 cup shredded cheddar

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup milk

2 eggs, lightly beaten


Combine all ingredients until dry ingredients are just moistened. Pour batter into sprayed 9x13. Bake at 450 for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!

Super Cute Tin Can Pin Cushion


So fun! My crafty mom loves it!

Can’t wait to make one for me so I ditch my tomato pin cushion!
