I don't share many recipes on this blog since that's not my first love, or a huge interest of mine. Now, if my husband kept HIS blog up to date, then I am sure there would be a million recipes on his blog because he is amazing! But, I just came across this super simple, and super yummy-looking brunch idea, so I thought I would share the link with you.

Super Simple Brunch Strata

Hmmm... we're having company over for brunch next weekend - maybe I will try this recipe on them :)

In my stocking this year....

Well, once again, I was spoiled this year! Family, Friends, Feasts, Festivities... amazing memories created, and many photos taken.

I thought I would share one of the treasures that I received this year. I am quite excited about this. A friend from Victoria has started making delicious soaps. One found its way to my stocking (thanks mom :) - this is the peppermint bar from Carriage 44. Check them out on facebook, or click on the link for their website.

Scandinavian Hearts

We hosted Christmas for Steve's family this year, and I made these Scandinavian Hearts to hold chocolates as the kids' place settings. They are a tradition in Scandinavian countries, and are super easy to make. I remember making them with my Mormor and my mom when I was young. I've often done them with kids at school, and once you've made one, they are easy as pie! When we would go to my Mormor and Morfar's house on Christmas Eve, they would have these hearts on their tree, and sometimes there would be small gifts in them, or an orange or some candies. They can be made any size and I think some really small ones would be cute on the front of a card, or you could make some up the right size to be a gift card holder. They are pretty at Christmas time, but also very appropriate for Valentine's Day ♥

I didn't use a template - just cut the 2 pieces on folds and then cut straight lines, but if you want to see some directions, here's a good tutorial: WOVEN HEARTS

I used some colourful Christmas paper, but other things like newspaper, wrapping paper, and even old wallpaper books are great papers for these hearts.
